What is Super Alexa?

Super Alexa is one of the original jokes which a developer programmed into Amazon line of products.

It’s actually based on what is called a “Konami Code” which is an old school cheat code by the developer’s studio who believe it or not, are called “Konami”.

If you’re old school, you’ll remember this was on many titles such as Contra, Gradius, Castlevania, Metal Gear, Dance Dance Revolution (You’ll always catch me at the arcades playing DDR) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

AI assistants are great for asking fun and silly questions, you’ll find that it burns an hour with anyone who’s not familiar with these devices, as a gamer myself I instantly flocked to the internet to share this out and about with everyone on Twitter and Facebook!


What Does Super Alexa Mode Do?

To confirm, this little joke doesn’t actually improve Alexa’s performance! This was simply a little nod towards the game and meme community who relish this humor.

The command is simply referring to the buttons you would press on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controllers in specific games to enable cheats or have a fun little trick. (source)
