* BeaconOfHope: Ellie will fight to defend herself and those she loves, but mainly only wants to survive and bring help to those around her, whether it is physical or emotional. She helps protagonist Joel through the zombie-infested world, and will share her commitment with any allies that wish to help her too.

In [[NextSundayAD late 2013]], the majority of human civilisation is destroyed by a highly contagious [[FesteringFungus fungal infection]] that rapidly transforms its victims into [[ZombieApocalypse aggressive and mindless monsters]]. Twenty years later, the last remnants of humanity either live under the strict martial law of "quarantine zones" or in scattered settlements trying to scavenge a living within a dangerous and hostile world.

Joel is a bitter and amoral ShellShockedVeteran who gets by as a smuggler out of the Boston Quarantine Zone with his partner-in-crime [[ActionGirl Tess]]. When a weapons deal goes wrong, Joel is given one last chance to salvage the goods: by striking a deal with the radical [[LaResistance Fireflies]] movement to smuggle a [[ActionSurvivor fourteen-year-old girl named Ellie]] out of the city. What appears to be a simple job turns into a country-wide trek across the ruins of America in pursuit of what could be a cure to the infection that plagues humanity, plighted not only by the Infected but also the worst that humanity has to offer.

* AllThereInTheManual: ''The Last of Us'' comic ''American Dreams'' tells the story of how Ellie and Riley met, and also gives us Riley's age, which is 16.
** ''Left Behind'' also features many {{Call Back}}s and references to the comic; Ellie and Riley discuss and mention things that come across as {{Noodle Incident}}s to anyone who hasn't read the comic but, in reality, were actually shown.
** When Ellie prepares to stitch Joel up, she comments that she's "kind of an expert...ish". This is also explained in the comic where Ellie took lessons with the other orphans in nursing.

* ArtStyleDissonance: For ''American Dreams'', [[TropesAreTools this trope somehow works]] - the art is more evocative of a slice-of-life comic akin to ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' than a story about the ZombieApocalypse, in spite of the more realistic-looking covers. Nonetheless, the work is essentially a coming-of-age story that focuses less on the actual infected themselves and more on Ellie's growth into becoming a young adult, meaning that the cartoonish appearance suits her state of mind at the time better than a gritty, realistic art style would.



*** ''American Dreams'' reveals that Riley is no slouch either, particularly as her introduction is through saving Ellie from a group of bullies, kicking some serious ass in the process.

''The Last of Us'' was ''extremely'' well-received. It is considered to be not only Naughty Dog's best game, but (according to TheOtherWiki) is ''the most-accoladed game in history'', winning over 200 Game Of The Year awards, in addition to numerous other celebrations of its storytelling, voice acting, etc. As of March 2014, ''The Last of Us'' has sold well over 7 million copies, and after ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' had the second largest video game launch of 2013.
