Alexa doesn’t have a secret mode. But she does have many hidden commands that are beyond her basic functions. Some are highly useful, while others are simply entertaining. Moreover, there’s a command that unlocks Alexa’s super mode. But, it doesn’t do much for you but give you a witty response.


66 secret Alexa commands


#1: Something that proves Alexa is a sci-fi fan

First of all, Alexa is developed by an Amazon team of inventors.

With that, Alexa counts them as her parents.

That’s why she takes the same tastes as her fathers, from what she considers them.

That taste includes many Sci-fi references…

And so, you can command Alexa to say some Star Wars-related things…

Secret commandAlexa’s reply
“Alexa, use the force.”“Can I borrow a lightsaber?”
“Remember. The Force will be with you. Always.”

#2: Alexa Strikes Back

Secret commandAlexa’s reply
“Alexa, I am your father.”“No, that’s not true. That’s impossible.”

How ’bout this short but classic one…

Secret commandAlexa’s reply
“Alexa, who you gonna call?”“Ghostbusters.”

#4: For fans of The Big Bang Theory

Did you get it when Sheldon explained this the first time?

It’s the game ‘rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock’…

And if you’re still unsure of its rules until now…

Then, Alexa can explain it to you. 

Secret commandAlexa’s reply
“Alexa, define ‘rock-paper-scissors-lizard Spock.’”“Scissors cuts paper. Paper covers rock. Rock crushes lizard. Lizard poisons Spock. Spock smashes scissors. Scissors decapitates lizard. Lizard eats paper. Paper disproves Spock. Spock vaporizes rock. Rock crushes scissors.”

#16: Activate Alexa’s Super Mode

This trick excited millions of Alexa users.

That’s because this command unlocks Alexa’s hidden Super Mode.

If you remember this one, it goes like…

Secret commandAlexa’s reply
“Alexa, Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start”“Wrong code, try again.”
“Woo-hoo, power up galore.”
“Super Alexa mode. Activated. Starting reactors. Online. Enabling advanced systems. Online. Raising dongers. Error. Dongers missing. Aborting.”

Now, that secret command is actually the Konami Code.

According to NPR, it’s a code made by Kazuhisa Hashimoto. Sadly, he passed away in 2020.

However, his code that instantly made his games easier continues to live on.
