** 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 was killed during the Clone Wars.
** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Radio/OpieAndAnthony'' were 90's shock-jocks who lasted until 2014, long after their style of (male-oriented, aggressive) comedy had fallen out of favor. By the the time Anthony was fired for offensive tweets, the show had spend years with no real competition, as ''Creator/HowardStern'' had downplayed radio for the sake of his TV career, and the public airwaves had abandoned the genre completely (both they and Stern moved to satellite radio).

* Ryu from ''BreathOfFireIII'' is believed to be the last living dragon, the rest having been killed in a war centuries ago. Later, it's revealed that [[spoiler: his childhood friend Teepo was also a dragon and didn't know it. Ryu is forced to kill him shortly after their reunion, leading Ryu to ''truly'' be the last dragon. There's a village of dragons, but they've given up their powers to escape God's notice, so whether they count is uncertain.]]

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} is the last of the dedicated video game console companies. All others, like Creator/{{Atari}}, {{Hudson Soft}}[[note]]Although they originally created and designed the UsefulNotes/PCEngine / Turbografx-16, it was NEC who actually manufactured, released and distributed the system.[[/note]], and Creator/{{SNK}}, but most notably Creator/{{Sega}} either went third-party or just went defunct. SonyComputerEntertainment was the first to start a trend of hardware companies making the consoles while game studios made the games, Nintendo has resisted and pressed on.

* From around 1982 to his retirement after the 1986 season, [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague NFL kicker]] Mark Moseley was the last of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_goal_%28football%29#How_field_goals_are_kicked "straight ahead" kickers]], all other kickers having adopted the more-accurate, harder-to-block soccer style kick.[[note]]For the record, the advantages of the straight ahead style were greater range and less vulnerability to bad turf conditions[[/note]] There have been others attempting to bring back the style over the years, but none have played above the mid-range college level.
** He's also the first, last, and very likely only special teams player to win the league's Most Valuable Player, winning the award in the sstrike-shortened 1982 season.

* By the time it was replaced with E/I programming in September 2014, Creator/{{Vortexx}} was the last Saturday morning kids block on US network TV which broadcasted entertainment instead of only existing to meet E/I requirements. Creator/{{Toonzai}} had also fit this trope before Vortexx replaced it.

* By the time it was replaced with E/I programming in September 2014, Creator/{{Vortexx}} was the last Saturday morning kids block on US network TV the Big Five networks which broadcasted entertainment instead of only existing to meet E/I requirements. Creator/{{Toonzai}} had also fit this trope before Vortexx replaced it. Creator/KidsClick would count, but it airs mainly on Creator/ThisTV affiliates and a few Sinclair-owned stations.



* Partially due to the fact that many of the ''Film/OurGang'' stars fell victim to horrible deaths (see [[http://www.neatorama.com/2010/07/05/the-curse-of-the-little-rascals/ this article]] for more on ''that'' mess), Jean Darling was the last living member of the group until her death in 2015 - she appeared in the films when they were silent.
