* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has several straight examples from Greek mythology: multiple pegasi, mulitple minotaurs and (implied) multiple chimaeras. But there's also an inverted example: in Aztec mythology, the ahuizotl was an entire species, but in ''MLP'', Ahuizotl is the name of one individual villain.

** ''VideoGame/{{Pardus}}'' has a jellyfish-like species named Medusa[[note]]Incidentally, also the name for the "jellyfish stage" of actual cnidarian life cycles, as opposed to the "anemone stage" called the Polyp[[/note]] for its petrifying abilities... and its stronger relatives, Stheno and Eurylae.

* Yoda from ''Franchise/StarWars'' probably deserves a mention here, since his species name was never revealed, and any other member that shows up is invariably referred to as "a yoda". George Lucas himself is said not to want the species named [[note]] although since as of 2014 no ''Star Wars'' character is any longer his intellectual property, it's unlikely this stipulation is still legally binding [[/note]], and so it's almost universally referred to as 'Yoda's Species'. At one point he was even reluctant to allow any other characters of Yoda's Species to be introduced, and even after relenting on this ''very few'' others have appeared. Apparently he hasn't shared his reasoning for ''why'' Yoda's background should be so mysterious.

* Two partial examples are the words "ocean" and "psalm," which, while not categories of one, are categories with specific, defined members. An ocean is one of four and only four specific bodies of water: the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Indian, and the Arctic. A psalm is one of the 150 songs or poems in the Book of Psalms. There presumably are not and can never be any other oceans or psalms. ** However, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:World_ocean_map.gif there is some confusion]] as to how the oceans should be divided.

Tigger
Added DiffLines:
* Tigger from Winnie The Pooh is a good example of this trope. When Pooh asks what he is on meeting him, he says he is "The One and Only Tigger".

* A particularly common type of {{OC}} within Franchise/{{Kirby}} fanon is a lookalike of the titular character, usually of a color different than the pink hero (but not always) and who may or may not be wearing a hat. As the species have no official name, many had taken the likening of calling them "Kirbies" after the pink puffball himself, and some of them consider Mega Knight and Galacta Knight to be ones themselves simply because of their uncanny resemblance to Kirby (and, in Mega Knight's case, has been revealed to have a face similar to Kirby's under his mask).

* (The) Hydra - Again, a singular creature so tough that it took Heracles a labor to beat, yet is often a random encounter in many a RolePlayingGame. (Lexicographically, "Hydra" just means water serpent, and is also the name of a genus of tiny underwater animals. ''The'' Hydra of Greek myth was more formally known as the Laernian Hydra.)
