Default Rocky should have become the leader in MMPR.

Rocky should have become the leader when he joined the team. Since he was Red Ranger and Tommy was more of a loner. Rocky was a better character anyway.

Tommy was already leader after he became White Ranger. Why give a comp!etely new Ranger leadership just because he happens to be the Red Ranger?

We saw why that was a bad idea when they made Wes the leader of Time Force for no reason.

Giving a newcomer the leadership position on the team is always a mistake. First, Rocky, Adam and Aisha did not have any powers, arsenal or Zords or whatsoever prior to becoming Power Rangers. With that said, giving Tommy the team leader was the right decision since:
1. He already had Ranger knowledge, history and battle experience, so he knew what to expect and what not to expect from Zedd and later, Zedd & Rita.
2. He knew when to make a certain decision during battle and how to make it all work - for most of the time (which didn't exactly turn out the best in "Ninja Quest", but still).
3. Kimberly wasn't exactly the leader type. She even had trouble keeping up with her preparations for the Pen Globals and with her Ranger duties at the same time. The "Wild West Rangers" thing was just something that she got caught in and had to be resourceful, quick-thinking and organized on-spot to make things work.
4. Billy was the tech guy. Making him the leader would take away the tech support that even Zordon and Alpha needed. So him giving up his Ranger spot actually worked for both him and the two in Zeo.

As for Wes, I think the Timeranger footage dictated who would be the team leader. Plus it worked for that season, since Wes is Alex's ancestor and could unlock the Chrono Morphers.
And it's not like Wes didn't live up to the role, since Alex acted like a jerk when he tried to replace him and get the 4 Rangers to just ditch him, only to see the 4 wanting Wes back.

correct about Tommy but both of you are wrong about Wes since he was not the leader now would you call him a battle commander or field leader? Yes that'd be more appropriate but the others even Wes himself would've referred to Jen as their leader... at least earlier on in the season but they all saw him (Wes) as their leader for the Dragontron mission.

As much as I loath White Ranger Tommy, givening the leadership to Rocky would have made no sense. The only other choices were Billy and Kimberly.

Thats right, Jen was the leader. Wes just took charge in battle a lot because of the sentai footage. Which is funny since TimePink was leader too in Timeranger. Toei can't resist having the Red act like the leader, even when they aren't.

In universe, the Red Powers were originally designed for the team leader. So it was natural for Wes to look like the leader in battle.

Don't forget Adam. Who would have been the best choice.
