The Group Leader is a term in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. It is used to describe a unit that has special abilities in the battlefield, abilities that other, "normal" units such as Yarhi do not. Group Leaders are designated on in-game maps by pin icons which are larger than the regular dots of other units.

All playable characters are Group Leaders; Vaan, Penelo, Lluyd, Kytes, Filo, Balthier, Fran, Ashe, Basch, and temporarily Ba'Gamnan.

Enemy Group Leaders include sky pirates, aegyl, and certain bosses, such as Feolthanos Exultant.
