Illumina Alpha is a gimmick and midboss from Make a Good Mega Man Level: Episode Zero, found in Harbige12's room on Floor 6 of Null and Void. It is a giant robot armed with lasers and a weapon similar to Bright Man's Flash Stopper, with which it can freeze robots with a burst of bright light.
Illumina Alpha remains in the background, and can't be damaged directly. While it doesn't attack Zero directly at first, it will periodically create a large flash across the screen, telegraphed by Illumina Alpha raising its arms and a "scan" effect appearing on screen. If Zero isn't standing behind a background tile once this flash goes off, Illumina Alpha will teleport him back to the start of the current section. The flash will also cause Revealing Tiles to be temporarily visible.
At the end of the mini-stage, Zero will find Illumina Alpha's core, and the giant robot will attack Zero directly by firing lasers at him. These lasers create explosions once they reach the foreground, while the core summons Tsuranattoris to defend itself. Only the flashing red orb will respond to damage, as the rest of the body is invincible. The less HP the core has, the more frequently Illumina Alpha shoots lasers at Zero. By destroying the core, Illumina Alpha will consequently be destroyed.
- Illumina Alpha is heavily based on Illumina, a giant robot in the background of Infinity Mijinion's stage in Mega Man X6. Like Illumina Alpha, it attacks the player from the background and is destroyed by attacking a "core" in the foreground. Illumina Alpha's CD also references a quote from Infinity Mijinion himself, where he states he designed Illumina to "destroy all the idiots".
- Internally, Illumina Alpha is also known as "Guts Scanner" based on its resemblance to Guts Man and its scanning gimmick.
