** Knuckles was last of his kind in the British ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' continuity as well, which made him overjoyed when he met fellow Echidna Dr. Zackary. As expected he turned out to be yet another person to use Knuckles' gullibility against him, turning out to be a [[OmnicidalManiac nutso terrorist]] and later joining up with Robotnik. He met another one later on, though this time he was much more [[IneffectualLoner suspicious]] (Ironic, as this one was actually good).

** Knuckles was eventually revealed to be this in the AlternateUniverse ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' as well. In fact, it was the whole subject of an episode. Of course, [[DenserAndWackier this being Sonic Boom]], the subject was treated (slightly) less seriously than in the other continuities. That being said, it ends with [[TrueCompanions Team Sonic essentially being a family in their own right]].

* With the demise of Child World/Children's Palace, Lionel Kiddie City, Circus World, and KB Toys (which later bought out Circus World), Toys "R" Us is the last remaining general purpose toy store chain in the US. Shortly after ''their'' demise, KB Toys announced they would be taking the slack left by TRU, thus having the last of their kind reign handed over to them.

* ''Series/SesameStreet'' presents an odd case. Either Loretta Long (Susan) or Carroll Spinney (Big Bird/Oscar) were the last remaining members of the original 1969 cast to still remain with the show, but at that point in time most of the humans seemed to have been [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Brother Chucked]] with the exceptions of Alan, Chris and Nina; everyone else only appeared sporadically by the time the much-publicized announcement that several of the older actors would be "let go" [[http://www.toughpigs.com/the-weirdest-things-about-this-sesame-street-humans-news-story/ made its way to the public]][[note]]who freaked out and insisted that they got fired instead because of ExecutiveMeddling from HBO - Sesame Workshop's CEO stated that the older humans were still very much part of the Sesame family and that they would find a way to use them in the future that would fit the current ''Sesame''[[/note]]. And while Carroll still does his characters occasionally, he has Matt Vogel and Eric Jacobson as the respective understudies for Big Bird and Oscar in case he either dies or retires. Cameraman Frank Biondo may also fit into the "last of their kind" mold, having been part of the show since the very first episode.

* It was inevitable that sometime in the early 21st century, there would be only one surviving human who was born in the 19th Century (i.e. prior to 1901). This would've happen in 2021 at the latest unless they'd also break the record for verified oldest person (currently held by the late Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at 122 years). However, Emma Morano and Violet Brown passed away on 15 April 2017 and 15 September 2017 respectively, both at the age of 117, going down in history as the fifth and fourth oldest people in the world. This left only Nabi Tajima as the official last of the 19th century...[[AndThenThereWereNone and then she too passed on 21 April 2018,]] ''also'' 117 years old (and thus the third oldest person in the world).

** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' reveals that this trope is no longer the case for the Air Nomads, winged lemurs, Sky Bison, and dragons. After the events of the first series, Aang found a wild herd of Sky Bison that are a different subspecies from Appa (as they have a slightly different pattern), and a subspecies of wing lemur different from Momo's was also discovered after the Hundred Year War. [[spoiler:Ran and Shao]] ended up having a descendant named Druk who serves as Zuko's dragon mount. Aang and Katara also had a son named Tenzin who can airbend and is Korra's Airbending teacher. Tenzin himself has three children who can bend air, but for now Tenzin is the world's only Airbending master [[spoiler:until his oldest daughter Jinora is anointed as a Master in the Season 3 finale]]. Additionally, due to [[spoiler:the occurrence of Harmonic Convergence at the end of Season 2]], [[spoiler:several random nonbenders all across the world suddenly became Airbenders; though most of them are not descendants of the original Airbenders, Tenzin has been hard at work training volunteers into a new generation of Air Nomads]].

* When ''Series/SesameStreet'' begins its [[LongRunners 47th season]], Loretta Long (Susan) and Carroll Spinney (Big Bird/Oscar) will be the last remaining members of the original 1969 cast.

* Roland Deschain of ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series is the last gunslinger, representing a past that most people remember only from stories. The fact that he's somewhere between several hundred and several thousand years (time is a face upon the water) old helps.

He later trains his companions to become gunslingers, after seeing that they have the talent, But they weren't raised into it from childhood like he was, and they never really consider themselves to be true gunslingers.
** Roland is also the last of the line of Eld, s bloodline that traces its way back to a man heavily implied to be King Arthur.
