Ripley can refer to either the character or the town.
Ripley is the protagonist of the films Alien and Aliens. Nothing happened beyond that. There was never an Alien 3. Nope. And definitely not a sequel to that directed by Joss Whedon. That would just be stupid. Ripley was actually the basis for Samus. In addition, the movie Alien was directed by Ridley himself.
Ripley is a small town in Derbyshire, England. It is widely requested as a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Users were furious when Masahiro Sakurai chose Bolsover for a stage instead.
Ripley was first known about in the Domesday Book, when it was mentioned that the land was owned by a man called Levenot. During the 18th century, it became one of the first town in England and the World to become industrialised, and the Butterly Company was founded there. In the modern day, Butterly have built the enterance to London St. Pancreas International station to wide praise as well as the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.
Ripley is well know in the British media for having the highest proportion of a White British background, with 88.5% of its residents describing themselves as such. The local Scout Group celebrates it's 100th anniversary this year. There are a number of reservoirs, parks and woods in the surrounding area. A notable resident of Ripley was Barnes Wallis, inventor of the 'Bouncing Bomb'.
According to the 2011 National Census, Ripley had a population of 21,097 and is located in the Parliamentary Constituency of Amber Valley with its MP as Nigel Mills of the Conservative Party. It has a DE5 postcode, representing Derby, which is 9 miles away,
