Does anyone know any main-protagonists who work at their best in a leadership position?

All I can think of are Lelouch vi Britannia from Code Geass, Shiroe from Log Horizon, and Sora and Shiro from No Game No Life.

The reason I bring this up is because whenever I watch anime, especially mecha anime, I'm usually trying to figure out the differences between the individual and group levels, and thus the soldier and commanding officer positions. You know? Like Bright Noa every time he slaps Amuro Ray as punishment for his insubordination!

Well.... While I guess this technically started in a video game there are two that come to mind.

Makoto Naegi and Hajime Hinata/Izuru Kamukura. Both of which are from Danganronpa. Though they were the main protagonists in their own games, and Makoto was the main protagonist in the Anime Danganronpa V3: End of Hopes Peak Academy.

Both seem to work extremely well when they're left in charge, and Makoto even goes on to become an even higher positioned leader. Though I won't say anymore because that would be spoilers.

Not the main main character, but Outbreak Company has a good episode about the harem runner-up who's the empress, and the struggles she and her cousin have gone through because of fights for succession...

For a non-political take, idol units usually have a leader, and there's usually some discussion as to why that particular member is the leader - they came up with the idea (Honoka), they're the heart that holds the group together (R), or they just have a magnetic personality (Hajime). They're often an ensemble cast, though.

K is also an ensemble cast, but it spends a lot of time focused on the Kings (of magical factions in modern Tokyo, not of countries), why they're Kings, the burden of that power, etc. There's a series of prequel movies coming out next year, based on the novels, and the first of those, K R:B, focuses more specifically on the Red and Blue kings and this aspect of their relationship. There's also going to be a new story about the previous Red and Blue kings, which, if you know the backstory of the anime (from season 2)... yeah, that's intense.

K is basically all about king-vassal relationships, which is wonderful.
