* In ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse'', the Inheritors do this towards the creature known as The Other and towards Spider-Totems created by chance or by magic when they infect the Web of Life with the blood of The Other and The Bride (re: Kaine Parker and Cindy Moon). They tried to do this to ''all Spiders'' via The Scion [[spoiler:(Re: [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl Benjy Parker]])]], but Spider-Ham [[SpannerInTheWorks stopped that easily]]

* For a good chunk of ''Franchise/StarWarsLegend'''s timeline, Luke Skywalker is the last and only Jedi. Also, by tradition and design, Palpatine is the only Master Sith Lord. There are more characters from various other Force-using traditions, but it gets messy quick on what counts as a Jedi or Sith.

* The ''ComicBook/StarWarsCrimsonEmpire'' comic follows the last of Palpatine's imperial guard after the fall of the Galactic Empire.
** Kir Kanos' status as the last of the Royal Guard excludes clones of Royal Guardsmen (due to implanted memories, at least one such clone ''thought'' he was the real deal), Guardsmen who were given the title and armor under Imperial leaders other than Palpatine, and quite naturally, that one Guardsman who defected to TheAlliance.

* Before his death, Yoda says in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', that Luke Skywalker is the last of the Jedi. Don't worry! ThereIsAnother. And more Jedi are trained by the time of the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse''.
** Also, Yoda himself [[SingleSpecimenSpecies may very well have been]] The Last Of The Wrinkly Green Muppets. Only one other is seen in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', and she left the Jedi Council before ''Attack of the Clones''.
** The ExtendedUniverse takes the opinion Yoda was the last of the ''old guard'' Jedi, while Luke is the first of the new. Obi-Wan and Yoda believed their Order's failure to stop the Sith from taking over the galaxy proved that their ways needed to go. When Yoda died, the Jedi's flawed teachings went with him.

* ''HostileWaters'' involves the last of the ''Antaeus''-class adaptive cruisers, brought back to fight an old enemy. Technically, two of them were left at the bottom of the ocean after the last war in case they were needed, but one of them did not surface upon receiving the activation signal. In fact, the ''Antaeus'' is also the first of its kind as well, being the prototype of its class.
