In chimpanzee society, the 'dominant male' does not always have to be the largest or strongest male, but rather the most manipulative and political male which can influence the goings on within a group.

Male chimpanzees typically attain dominance through cultivating allies who will provide support for that individual in case of future ambitions for power.

It is often the females who choose the alpha male. For a male chimpanzee to win the alpha status, he must gain acceptance from the females in the community.
