Al'Ori'Ramikade was a title in the Mandalorian culture, meaning "Commander of Supercommandos" when translated from the Mando'a language into Basic. The title was often a secondary one, attributed to the Mand'alor, the traditional leader of all the Mandalorian warrior clans. The Al'Ori'Ramikade title referenced the Mandalorian ruler's ability to command their people's supercommando forces in accordance with the tenets of the Resol'nare, the six central principles of Mandalorian culture.
Jaster Mereel, a Mandalorian soldier from Concord Dawn who served as Mand'alor prior to and during the Mandalorian Civil War, was known to use the title of Al'Ori'Ramikade, and did so during an encounter he had with the regent of Mek va Uil. Decades later, after Boba Fett succeeded Fenn Shysa as Mand'alor, Fett also made use of the Commander of Supercommandos title.
