* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the player character, as the Warrior of Light, is the one hope Eorzea has of fighting off the Garlean Empire and the Primal threat. While Eorzea has its own military and others with the power of the Echo can resist the Primals' influence, the player character is the one best qualified to decisively solve the realm's many problems.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': On the opinion of Varys, Daenerys is the only viable candidate to the Iron Throne; stronger than Tommen and gentler than Stannis. Presumably as of the end of Season 6, his opinion is stronger than ever. However, this is {{downplayed}} in Season 7. Varys thinks she's The Only One, but this largely depends on her not becoming like Aerys "with the right counsel."

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Dear God, the Mane Six. And the Princesses. Especially when the Canterlot Royal Guard are involved. The season 3 finale, "Magical Mystery Cure" takes this to ludicrous extents, where it turns out that without Rarity, everyone's fashion sense deteriorates; without Rainbow Dash, the weather falls out of whack; without Fluttershy, the animals get unruly; without Applejack, her farm falls apart; and without Pinkie Pie, everyone becomes miserable and unhappy. This despite many of these jobs having other ponies who could pick up the slack for them.

Added DiffLines:

* As ''Series/TheOrville'' is an IndecisiveParody of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', it's not uncommon for the USS ''Orville'' to be the closest ship available to respond to a crisis, despite being only a mid-level exploration ship rather than a dedicated combatant. Given a justification in the pilot: the Planetary Union Fleet has a severe staffing shortage, which is a major reason Captain Mercer got command of ''Orville'' in the first place after wrecking his career following his divorce.

* Justified in ''Podcast/TheAdventureZoneBalance''. The protagonists are the only [[ArtifactCollectionAgency Reclaimers]] who have ever actually ''reclaimed'' anything, as they are the only people able to handle [[ArtifactOfDoom the Grand Relics]] without succumbing to their malicious thrall... because [[spoiler:they're the Relics' original creators]].

* The ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' series is well known for this trope. No matter how many people were around to witness it, no matter how many clues you find, no matter if crucial information is easily accessible to the public or not, nobody but you is going to be solving that murder, and everybody else (save maybe two other people) is going to be dragging you off course. Hell, some chapters even make it a plot point -- each game features a killer that actively puts out false information since they know nobody else is going to look for clues.

** ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'' has Kirk's crew charged with saving the diplomat hostages in their malfunctioning ''Enterprise-A''. Kirk actually calls out the Admiral assigning him on this. The movie tries to justify it by saying that Kirk is their best captain. ([[BlackHoleSue Yeah, William Shatner was director and had a story credit.)]] Website/SFDebris points out how the movie itself makes it much worse: The ''Enterprise'' is seen to take about 6 hours to reach the center of the galaxy from the Neutral Zone, at which speed ''any'' ship would've been close enough to assist on the Paradise Planet earlier -- meaning that if the Enterprise was the Only One, then Starfleet apparently has ''only one ship''.

Compare the subtropes OneRiotOneRanger, where it is justified by a specific decision on the part of the authorities, and ItsUpToYou. Compare IWorkAlone, where the hero chooses this voluntarily. Also compare TheMainCharactersDoEverything, where extras aren't shown to be competent nor incompetent, they just never get to do anything. Also also compare TheOneGuyWithABrain, where only one guy seems to be competent despite being surrounded by much more qualified experts on the subject. Contrast HeroOfAnotherStory. See also EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce, because inevitably the stakes are cataclysmic.

Sometimes this is actually warranted by the show's premise, notably ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', ''DarkAngel'', ''Series/StargateSG1''... okay, any show featuring TheChosenOne.
