We find that the overlap between alpha-like four-body condensation wave function and m-scheme basis state can be represented by the hyper-Pfaffian, which is a natural extension of the Pfaffian for thepair-condensation wave function. This overlap is useful for nuclear structure calculations with the variational Monte Carlo method. As the hyper-Pfaffian has, however, only a few mathematical relations, it is quite difficult to use for numerical computations. We also find that a specific case of hyper-Pfaffian can be expressed by the sum of standard Pfaffians.
