Ninja Super Steel Gold
- "Rhythm of the Ninja! Ninja Steel Gold!"
- ―Ninja Steel Gold's roll call
Aiden Romero, better known under his stage name Levi Weston, is Ninja Steel Gold, the Gold Ranger of the Ninja Steel Rangers. He is a famous country musician using an alias in order to hide himself from Galvanax and his forces. During a middle adventure with the Rangers, it helps him regain his lost past memories, and eventually his birth name.
After the Ninja Nexus Prism flew away from Brody, Sarah, and Preston, it sought out Levi, who was on sabbatical working on a new album. Levi pulled out the Gold Power Star only to be immediately kidnapped by Madame Odious and brought to a secret room in the Warrior Dome, with his memory as Aiden being stolen into a robot's body to disguise itself as an impostor, leaving an amnesiac Levi with his more recent memories. He spent an unspecified amount of time hooked up to a machine that took his original identity's memories before the Astro Zord autonomously rescued Levi who recovered his Power Star and morphed to escape. Hack Attack
Levi went into battle against various unseen monsters sent by Madame Odious to recover him, always vanishing before the other Rangers could find him. In an attempt to hide, Levi stashed the Gold Ninja Power Star in his manager Tom's briefcase. This resulted in Tom's kidnapping at the hands of Ripcon, who sought to steal the Gold Power Star and discover the identity of a traitor aboard the Warrior Dome. The core five Rangers attempted to rescue Tom only to be captured themselves. Levi arrived and recovered the Gold Power Star, rescuing the other Rangers while Tom got away and revealing his identity to them. Levi was brought to the Ninja Rangers' base where he revealed his story and received a Power Star and his Bull Zord Star from Mick. Gold Rush
Levi had plans to go on a world tour, but at his first concert an earthquake caused by a monster made the whole stadium collapse. He decided that for now, the world needed the Gold Ranger instead of Levi Weston. Rocking and Rolling
Levi stands by as Brody meets his brother Aiden, but after initial niceties, it feels like he's a bit of a showoff. Eventually, Aiden and Levi outright come to blows when Levi catches him trying to steal the Ninja Steel. "Aiden" is defeated, revealed to be a cyborg. During "Aiden"’s destruction, the green fog comes from his cybernetic head somehow transfers to Levi’s head, and Levi was briefly weakened upon receiving a strange familiar vision from that robotic imposter.
After the battle, Brody performed the song he was meant to play with "Aiden" alone. Levi, experiences sensations that relate to having his memories return, only to hear Brody, and knowing the song. He realizes he's truly Aiden, and he and Brody reunite onstage as brothers. Family Fusion
Levi's Real History Remembered
Levi’s birth name was Aiden Romero, the oldest son of Dane Romero.
Aiden is first seen inside of the Romero's house and his father Dane tells him to keep the Ninja Steel safe while he runs outside to save Brody from Galvanax, Ripcon and Madame Odius. Though Aiden managed to escape from Galvanax's crew, his father suddenly disappeared after splitting the Ninja Star into six shards, and Brody was captured to forcefully work as Galvanax's slave. Thus, Aiden remained on Earth and stayed with his aunt to have a normal life.Return of the Prism
He developed an interest in country music which his dad use to teach him and Brody such as their signature Romero family song, and becomes a famous singer for 10 years, under his stage name and an alias he created known as Levi Weston, in order to hide himself from Galvanax. However due to his 10 years of music career, he dropped out of high school. The Ninja Prism comes to him to give him the Gold Power Star, but he almost immediately gets kidnapped by Madame Odious and has his memory wiped, while having his memories being used by his cyborg imposter.Gold RushFamily Fusion
Even after regaining Aiden memories by destroying his cyborg imposter and remembers the Romero’s family song thanks to Brody in 10 years later, Aiden still goes by using his Levi Weston stage name as his current public name, under suggestion of Preston to avoid identity crisis to the public between him and his imposter, in which the Rangers including Levi agree.
Levi is calm and very charismatic and is also a kind and thoughtful man. He remained on Earth living with his aunt when his father disappeared.
He is a gifted musician, as he is passionate about country music. Despite being famous, he is humble enough to be sick of being treated like he's someone special all the time. He likes having normal friends.
When Brody finds him, Levi is on tour and has trouble deciding to leave his passion to become a Ranger. Also, despite not remembering Brody as his little brother at the time, Levi felt a connection to him as when he hired him to be his bodyguard and instantly, although unknowingly at the time, reconnected with each other. However, by the time Levi regains his original memories as Aiden, he remembers that family is the most important element of the world, which his and Brody's father Dane use to teach them.

Behind the Scenes
- Though his real name is revealed in "Family Fusion", it is also decided in the episode that he will move forward using his stage name to avoid any questions regarding his identity, Brody's or that of his impostor.
- Levi's civilian form's stage first name, as well as his official debut episode, "Gold Rush," are references to Levi Strauss, the founder of the first American jeans company and pioneer of the California Gold Rush.
- "Weston" is a play on west.
- Additionally, his visor has a cowboy hat on it, alluding to the old west.
- His catch phrase, "Let's get this party started!" is a nod to his Super Sentai counterpart's catchphrase, "Party night!".
- As with Antonio from Power Rangers Samurai, Levi also has his own signature fashioned morpher that is modeled after the basic morpher.
- Both of their morphers are American-exclusive and are modified versions of the core rangers' morphers. Both of their Sentai counterparts' changers were based on foods and thus may have been considered too comical by the producers of Power Rangers.
- As with Sir Ivan of Zandar from Power Rangers Dino Charge, Levi also has his own phrasing habit in contrast to the Red Ranger.
- Unlike his Super Sentai counterpart, Levi's ranger form is properly addressed by his color, gold, rather than by the signature shape of his Ninja Power Star. This is likely written to maintain consistency in the role call.
- Levi is the only member of his family to not be a Red Ranger, instead being in a different Ranger color, making him also Fuuka Igasaki's counterpart for their similar Ranger role of being related to a Red Ranger family.
- Levi is very similar to Mike Corbett from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy as they are both older brothers of the Red Ranger and were both lost prior to their arrival.
- Additionally, both Levi and Mike Corbett have bull-themed Zords.
- Levi is the first Sixth Ranger to be related to a core team Ranger since Ryan Mitchell of Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.
- Levi has his own version of the Transformation Device Ninja StarBurger, which like his counterpart, he uses to take selfies of his victories. He also uses it as his actual cellphone Rocking and Rolling
- Apparently due to his music career, Levi is the first Power Ranger to be stated as a high school dropout.
- Levi is the first Sixth Ranger of an anniversary series not to be a Silver Ranger.
- In the episode "Tough Love", the last line of the evil song in which Levi sings "Ninpo kinji", was a reference to his Super Sentai counterpart.
- Levi is the only male Ninja Steel Ranger, out of the main team, who hasn’t summoned the Lion Fire Zord.
- Not counting Tommy Oliver’s use of multiple powers, Levi has the most forms in-show out of all the 6th Rangers, with a total of 5. He is also the first Ranger in the Power Rangers franchise to have more forms than his team’s Red Ranger, who only has access to 4 forms.
- Levi is the first Gold Ranger to be immediately preceded and succeeded by Rangers of the same color.
- Posters for a Levi Weston concert can be seen in the background during a battle against Tronics in Boxed In, the sports special episode of Power Rangers Beast Morphers season 2.
- One of Levi's songs can be heard from the cleaner's headphones in the eighteenth episode of the second season of Power Rangers Beast Morphers, Crunch Time.
