* ''Series/{{Hustle}}'': It was Mickey's OneLastJob that persuaded the rest of the team to come on board in the first episode. Needless to say, it wasn't ''actually'' his last job... This is a rare example of where the protagonist doing the OneLastJob knows it isn't his last. Normally he's the one to get sucked back into it afterwards, but actually it is his plan all along to get the rest of the team in.
* Parodied in a sketch on ''Series/NotTheNineOClockNews'' where a man is reluctantly persuaded by a group of 'friends' to do OneLastJob where "all you've got to do is drive the car." The job in question turns out to be driving a loudspeaker-equipped vehicle promoting the local Conservative party MP's election campaign.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Auron assisting with Yuna pilgrimage is his OneLastJob. That dude doesn't even let [[spoiler:the fact that he's already dead]] stop him.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoAdvance'': starts of with a OneLastJob situation, needless to say. Things become way more complicated then it seems.

* Scott Lang claims he's done stealing stuff in ''Film/AntMan'' when offered a job by Hank Pym, who immediately says the job he has in mind is for him to steal something. So this is a ''de facto'' last job for Scott. That said afterwards he becomes a full-fledged superhero anyway so despite firmly jumping across the thin red line, it definitely didn't end up being the end of his exploits.
