* The ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' franchise has Tohma from ''Force''. He's currently on a quest to find out who are the ones behind [[DoomedHometown the destruction of his hometown]]. The fact the he is a Sole Survivor had ruled out the Huckebein group as prime suspects, since when the Huckebein performs a massacre on a settlement, they make sure that no one survives.

* This is an idea that recurs a number of times in ''[[BirdyTheMighty Birdy the Mighty: Decode]]''. The most prominent examples are the two seasons' main villains, Shyamalan and Nataru. The former was the only one in a gathering of 4,000 to survive a terrorist attack in his homeland, while the latter was the only one to survive a blast from the Ryunka that killed his best friend. Both instances ended up being the StartOfDarkness of those affected.

** In TheStand it's Stu Redman. There are others in Boulder and there's Tom Cullen, but Stu was the only survivor of the four sent to face Flagg (if you don't count Kojak, the dog).

* In ''BusouRenkin'', Tokiko was the only survivor of a homunculus attack on her elementary school when she was 10. Given that her family is never mentioned, it's entirely possible that her parents were among the casualties. * In ''PsychicAcademy'', Ai is the only survivor of a train crash caused by his then-unknown powers freezing time for the train car he was in (but not the rest of the train), which caused it to derail.

** Implied trope, the Master Chief is never called as such but it is implied that he was the last Spartan. Implied trope is then inverted as more Spartans are revealed to have survived (or were not present during) the Fall of Reach.

** PlayedForLaughs with mercenary squadmate Zaeed Massani. Talk to him on the Normandy and he'll share some of his many war stories. Practically all of them end with the mission going FUBAR and him being the only one to make it out, getting to keep his dead comrades' pay in the process. His dossier in the Shadow Broker DLC attributes this partly to the fact that he was TheNeidermeyer. This is a hint that he's actually a poor choice for a Squad Leader in the end game.
