English term or phrase:alpha male
the alpha male seems to be the ultimate leader who usually revels in a long period of dominance
(from a snow monkeys documentary)
Explanation: As an adjective, "alpha" means "socially dominant especially in a group of animals" (Webster dictionary). This meaning probably comes from the origin of the word "alpha": it is the first letter in the greek alphabet.
