* ''Literature/TheMartian'' by Andy Weir. Due to a freak accident, Mark Watney is the only person on the entire planet of Mars, and the next expedition is years away. For the first couple of months, it never even occurs to anyone back on Earth that he might still be alive.

* ''Literature/TheMartian'' by Andy Weir. Due to a freak accident, Mark Watney is the only person on the entire planet of Mars, and the next expedition is years away. For the first couple of months, it never even occurs to anyone back on Earth that he might still be alive. His log entries are, largely, almost defiantly upbeat - he nearly kills himself (accidentally) several times, he's facing seemingly impossible odds that he's well equipped to calculate and appreciate, but in spite of it all he mostly keeps working on whatever problem is in front of him because the alternative (running away, screaming at the sky, crying like a baby) would just waste time and, eventually, leave him facing the exact same problem, only probably worse. PlayedForLaughs when [=NASA=] realises he's up there alive, alone, and thinks that everyone thinks he's dead:
-->"He's stuck out there. He thinks he's totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man's psychology?... I wonder what he's thinking right now." (GilliganCut:) "How come Aquaman can control whales? They're mammals! Makes no sense."

** Probably has less to do with being alone, and more to do with the constant "Alone"s popping up and saying alone, over and over

* Because TimeTravel in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is imprecise, [[spoiler: Laurent]] ended up coming back in time three years earlier than the rest of the [[KidFromTheFuture kids from the future]], and spent it hiding in a village, unable to find his friends or go to the Shepherds to warn them about the BadFuture (due to a lack of proof). In his A-support with his father he notes that he thought he would go mad or die alone.

* You are this in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'''s single player mode. It's just you and a world eight times the size of the planet Earth. And lots of hostile and not-so-hostile creatures.

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-451 SCP-451]], a former Foundation agent who ''thinks'' he's the last human on Earth due to a PerceptionFilter which prevents him from perceiving other humans, any of their actions, or any of their attempts to communicate with him.

* PorcupineTree's song "A Smart Kid" is about a young man who finds himself on an Earth completely devoid of all other humans after some man-made disaster. Some aliens show up and he plaintively asks them to "please take me with you." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6aF7u-oe40 Youtube Link]]
