** [[{{Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine}} Sisko]] is the [[{{InvertedTrope}} Inversion]] of this trope. The station is full of people with their own narratives, agendas, and personal baggage, most of whom aren't even under his command. [[{{Main/BadassBureaucrat}} A big part of his job is saying no to people when their about to so something short-sighted or politically dangerous]].

* Averted in ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', where, unlike in the games, [[CanonName Yu Narukami]] fits the "calm, collected leader" image, but [[DeadpanSnarker he]] [[SeriousBusiness has]] [[TheGadfly his]] [[CovertPervert fair share]] of [[TheComicallySerious humorous]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} quirks]] [[LargeHam to keep things]] interesting; In addition to being a certified {{Badass}}. [[spoiler: Also, like the rest of his team, Yu's got his own [[BeneathTheMask share of issues]]. Deep down, he's actually an insecure BrokenAce with a low self opinion. He get's his strength from the [[ThePowerOfFriendship bonds he shares with his friends and family]], something he never had before coming to Inaba, and thus develops an intense fear of losing people he's close to.]]

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': Played straight with [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor Charles Xavier]] in [[Film/XMen1 the]] [[Film/X2XMenUnited original]] [[Film/XMenTheLastStand trilogy]], where he's a StaticCharacter who doesn't really get to be more than TheMentor to the X-Men. It's averted with the [[Film/XMenFirstClass First]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast Class]] [[Film/XMenApocalypse trilogy]], where he's upgraded to the HeroProtagonist and becomes a RoundedCharacter.

In a long-running series or mythos, the StandardizedLeader stands out most for not being able to change. And when we say change, we don't even mean his CharacterDevelopment. Writers and designers may not even be able to change the Heroes look without [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks backlash from fans who can only accept the original flavor]]. The StandardizedLeader is trapped in time.

* The Toxic Avenger ("Toxie") in the short-lived cartoon ''Toxic Crusaders''. He was big, strong, ugly, and had a sort of spider-sense. All the other Crusaders were also big, strong, and ugly, plus they had quirky, unique, useful powers. It didn't help that Toxie had almost no personality, and his action figure was incredibly boring compared to the lavish designs and arsenals of accessories that the other characters in the toyline got.

* Matt O'Morph, while not particularly powerful, is the team leader in ''EverydayHeroes''. This is mainly due to administrative competence, people skills, and seniority.
