Supreme Commander is a rank used throughout all continuity families.

During Generation One, the Supreme Commander (総司令官 Sōshireikan?) was the absolute leader of the Cybertrons and, at first, sole bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. Later, some Cybertrons were appointed the rank of Supreme Commander without having the Matrix passed down to them.

The Supreme Commander rank can be considered the Autobot version of the Decepticon rank of Emperor of Destruction.

By the era of the Beast Wars, the rank of Supreme Commander was appointed to high-ranking Maximal generals, usually of Convoy status. The task of ruling over the Maximal race as a whole was the job of the Maximal Elders.
