"Would the last one out kindly turn off the lights?"
— Herbert S Watson
In his tears he sees his face
"I am the end of the human race;
When I'm gone there'll be no trace
''for I'm the sole survivor."
—Blue Öyster Cult, "Sole Survivor"
I'm a Time Lord. I'm the last of the Time Lords. They're all gone. I'm the only survivor. I'm left travelling on my own because there's no one else.
— The Doctor, Doctor Who, "The End of the World"
LAST ONE ALIVE, LOCK THE DOOR!
—The Soldier', Team Fortress 2
They hunt me with dogs in the daylight,
they hunt me with torches by night.
For these men who are small can never stand tall,
whilst giants still walk in the light.
Oooooooh, I am the last of the giants,
so learn well the words of my song.
For when I am gone the singing will fade,
and the silence shall last long and long.
—Wildling folk song, A Song of Ice and Fire
"At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. The man will be gone. There will be nothing to show we were ever here... but stardust. The last man alone with God. Am I that man?"
—Captain Pinbacker, Sunshine
"Kal-El, my son, you are all that remains of a once-proud people. And in you Krypton's glory will live on."
—Jor-El, Superman Returns novelization
He wasn't just A Time Lord, he was THE Time Lord. The Last of the Time Lords. His people were no more, vanished from time and space. Forgotten except in myth, legend, and the memories of the higher species who were still in reeling in awe of the War's stunning, cataclysmic conclusion.
"They're all gone," the Time Lord said in his new northern accent as he stumbled forward. "I'm the only one left."
I'm an orphan... Perhaps the most total orphan the world has ever known... The orphan son of an entire world!
