Most of the time it would be the Red Ranger, but on odd occasions, another color Ranger would take on the role. Here are the leader oddities:
- MMPR Season 2 and Season 3: the White Ranger.
- Time Force: the Pink Ranger.
- Dino Thunder: at first it was the Red Ranger, but on odd occasion, the Black Ranger (Tommy) would share the duties of leader with Red.*
- S.P.D.: Sometimes Red Ranger, and at other times, the Shadow Ranger.
- I disagree. Tommy was mentor, not defacto leader. How to fight the enemy was always ultimately the red ranger's call.
