* 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. He was also the first and (so far and likely) only special teams player to win the league's MVP (during the strike-shortened 1982 season).

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11191235/88/Harry-Potter-and-the-Prince-of-Slytherin Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin]]'' Sardeth cast a spell which gave his people, the Paar'zheal, enough power to wreak large-scale havoc and as punishment, magic itself destroyed their ''ancestors'' millions of years in the past. As such, not only is he the last of his kind but since his kind ''never even existed'' in the new reality, he constitutes a paradox and, if he leaves his current home, will vanish into nothingness.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Impa is suggested to be one of the few living remnants of the Sheikah people, if not the last. [[spoiler: If the player keeps this information in mind, then it isn't too much of a surprise when Sheik is revealed to be Zelda in disguise.]]

In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Impa is suggested to be one of the few living remnants of the Sheikah people, if not the last. [[spoiler: If the player keeps this information in mind, then it isn't too much of a surprise when Sheik is revealed to be Zelda in disguise.]]]] Similarly, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' Impaz is stated to be the last survivor of the Hidden Village and named after its original founder. Considering the Hidden Village is implied to be an older version of Kakariko Village, which was founded by Impa, it's implied that Impaz is similarly meant to be the last Sheikah. This is finally averted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', where the Sheikah are a thriving society of many individuals.

* Solid Snake fits this trope since by the 4th ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' game, he is the only clone of Big Boss who survived the battles. In a more real sense, he's one of the last of the "old school" soldiers on the battlefield, relying on his senses, instincts and experience to guide him rather than the nanomachines and other gadgets that are employed by more modern soldiers.
