That is the premise of ''Y: The Last Man'', a {{Vertigo| Comics}} comic book that, at some point, will be a movie as well...[[DevelopmentHell maybe]]. Written by Creator/BrianKVaughan (creator and original author for ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' and ''ComicBook/ExMachina''), it tells the story of Yorick, a New York City escape artist who, along with his pet monkey Ampersand (&), somehow stayed alive while all other male mammals, from rats to giraffes to New York City Hall employees, [[{{Gendercide}} suddenly died]].

Compare to ''Manga/WorldsEndHarem'', it borrows the basic premise found here: male populace died instantly, one specimen survived, women struggles to keep things functioning, he must find answers and father the new human race, all this but with a more fetishistic approach.

* TheOldConvict: It is discovered that the idyllic if [[TownWithADarkSecret somewhat secretive]] hamlet Yorick and company stumble across a few months after the {{gendercide}} is populated by inmates of the women's penitentiary just down the road that the remaining guards cut loose. The white-haired woman with a cane and fond memories of working munitions factories during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo that was more or less running the place? Doing life for murder.

* PostApocalypticGasmask: An InvokedTrope to hide Yorick's identity. Given that Earth isn't a devastated wasteland, Yorick's justification for continuing to wear it over time become less plausible.

WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A bit of a literal example. Rats are spotted in a trashcan several years after all the rats should have died out due to an inability to breed. We never find out why or if this has any wider implication. While a few male rats ''may'' have come into contact with [[spoiler: Ampersand's fecal matter just as Yorick did, and thus been immunized,]] that's never confirmed.

* WeirdnessCensor: Must be at work for Beth 2's sake. Aside from one storyline, the fact that she got pregnant and gave birth to a daughter several years after the Gendercide raises ''no'' suspicions among strangers -- even though she travels thousands of miles with an infant girl towards the end of the series.
