* This is the backstory of Dog Spike in the ''Fanfic/AftermathOfTheGames'' universe. Shortly after he was born, a horrible case of rabies spread through his litter when his unvaccinated mother got bitten by a rabid dog, forcing the vets at the shelter to euthanize all of them. Spike was spared because he was the only pup who wasn't infected. As a result, he went into a deep depression before he met the thirteen-year-old Sci-Twi (she had been recently orphaned in a drunk-driving accident and [[PromotionToParent Shining Armor and Cadence]] decided to let her adopt an animal to ease her grief). Upon hearing why he ended up at the animal shelter, [[BondingOverMissingParents she decided to adopt him then and there]].

** In fact, the player character is actually referred to by the trope name in official material, due to the fact that they have to name the protagonist ''something'', despite the game's near-infinite naming possibilities. They do this in all Fallout games: the other four protagonists are the Vault Dweller, the Chosen One, the Lone Wanderer, and the Courier/Courier 6, in ''{{Fallout}}'', ''{{Fallout 2}}'', ''{{Fallout 3}}'', and ''{{Fallout New Vegas}}'', respectively. Also, the canon default names for the player in 4 are Nate and Nora for the husband and wife, and it's just easier to refer them as a collective "Sole Survivor".

* A couple of characters in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' have this label.
** Maggie was the only person to survive the fall of Factor to the monsters, forced to live in the ruins of the colony and hide from the monsters for two years until she could get an evacuation ship up and running on her own.
* Markov was a simple colonist until corporate mercenaries raided his home to wipe out the colonists and allow the Megacorps to take over the resources they'd discovered. This one was a bit more notable than the others because he was the sole survivor of the event in general, not just of the colonists.
* Slim joined up with the war effort with his friends, but ended up as the only one of them to make it out alive after their first real military action.
