The title of "Maximum Leader" (in Spanish, Líder Máximo) has been used by, or to describe, a number of politicians, including, but not limited to:
- Fidel Castro 
- Omar Torrijos - was recognised as "Maximum Leader of the Panamanian Revolution" in the 1972 Constitution of Panama
- Manuel Noriega - an official title given to him in 1989 by Panama's National Assembly
- Sonny Barger - the given title of the president of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club as noted in Hunter S. Thompson's Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs
Where the term is not used by the individual in question, the usage is usually derogatory, implying that they are dictatorial.
