* A particularly brilliant title drop occurs in the Anthony Perkins / Music/StephenSondheim-penned murder mystery ''Film/TheLastOfSheila''. Seemingly referring to the [[TheChessmaster puzzle-happy Clinton Green's]] obsession with his wife who was killed in a hit-and-run accident ("I wonder if we'll ever hear the last of Sheila?" says one character), the title is actually a clue to a puzzle set up near the beginning of the play, which ultimately reveals Clinton's murderer: [[spoiler: Each of the six guests / suspects are given 'dirty secrets' that actually ''are'' the secrets of one of their fellow guests. Each secret corresponds to a letter in the word "Sheila"; the murderer is uncovered when one guest acting as detective cracks the puzzle and realises that the murderer replaced the final secret, "Alcoholic", with "Hit and Run Killer", in order to guilt someone into confessing their accidental killing of Sheila. As the detective points out, "the ''last of Sheila'' isn't an H, it's an A."]]

* ''Film/CloudAtlas'':
** Zachry talks about wishing he had some kind of map to track souls as they move across the ages, like clouds across the sky. He calls it an "atlas o' clouds".
** The title of Frobisher's masterpiece is ''The Cloud Atlas Sextet''. Its structure is described as extremely similar to that of the novel, with six individual parts slowly woven together into one greater whole. Frobisher himself isn't sure if it's clever or gimmicky.

* The movie ''Dead Birds'' tries to pull a non-verbal version of these. The only scene where a dead bird ever appears -- and yes, it's only one -- has a dramatic sound in the background, and equally dramatic camera zooming on the only ''one'' dead bird that's never mentioned again. The result is that it simply feels [[NightmareRetardant ridiculous]].

* In ''Star Wars: Film/TheLastJedi'', the trope was used twice in the same conversation. When Kylo Ren finds Luke, he claims that he'll finally be able to kill the last Jedi. Luke then turns right around and says that he ''isn't'' the last Jedi anymore.
