* David, the eponymous werewolf in ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'' is the last werewolf, which becames an important plot point as every person killed by a werewolf since the dawn of time is unable to rest and stays as a spirit on Earth, thus his death will put an end to the curse. Of course, the sequel disregards this completely.

* Due to many wars and a good dose of FantasticRacism, this trope is quite popular in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''.:
** The clans descended from [[spoiler: Kaguya Otsutsuki]] are considered as the most powerful in the Ninja World, and yet precisely because of this reason, many of them have been hunted to extinction. There are at least six clans descended from [[spoiler: her]], only one of which, the Hyuga Clan, is not moribund/extinct.
*** Tsunade is possibly the last living descendant of the Senju Clan, after the premature death of her brother.
*** Sasuke Uchiha is a lesser case of this. He is the last of his clan unless you count his [[spoiler: now undead]] brother Itachi, who wiped out the clan, [[spoiler: Madara, brought back to life by the same forbidden jutsu that resurrected Itachi]], and [[spoiler:Tobi]], who we all know was an Uchiha, just not ''which''. ([[spoiler:Since he's now been revealed as Obito, we can say that the "completely" alive Uchiha are Obito and Sasuke.]]) [[spoiler: However, with Madara and Obito dead after the confrontation with Kaguya, Sasuke is now the only survivor of the Uchiha clan, at least until the epilogue, where he has a daughter, Sarada]].
*** Naruto is the last known descendant of the Uzumaki clan, who were mostly wiped out when their home village was destroyed. Later in the series, we learn that [[spoiler: Tsunade, Karin, and Nagato have Uzumaki blood in their veins as well. Though Tsunade is never recognized to be one, Nagato is mostly dead now anyway and it's not clear if Karin even knows about her heritage. At the epilogue, Naruto is shown to have two children, thus completely averting this trope.]]
*** Kimimaro was the last of the Kaguya Clan, serving Orochimaru until his death. Ironically for such a warlike clan, he fell not to battle wounds, but to a terminal illness.
*** The main villain of the canon film ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last]]'' is the sole survivor of the [[spoiler:Otsutsuki]] clan itself.
** According to Zabuza, Haku was the last survivor of the Yuki clan, due to bloody persecutions throughout the Land of Water that wiped out many clans with bloodline limits. [[spoiler: One of the post-manga novels reveals that the bloodline is still present in other people, as an antagonist, who survives her ordeal, is shown possessing it.]]

** 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.
