Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' episode "[[Recap/LeverageS05E08TheBrokenWingJob The Broken Wing Job]]", Parker is stuck at home with a broken leg while the others are [[NoodleIncident off doing a job in Japan]], so it's up to her to stop a robbery [[spoiler:and kidnapping]] on her own.

Added DiffLines:

* Late in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', [[spoiler:the Collectors besiege the Normandy while Commander Shepard and co. are away, leaving the fate of the ship in the hands of the pilot Joker]].


* ''Anime/KantaiCollection'': When the last Abyssal carrier shows up in episode 12, Fubuki is certain that's the last one they have to defeat. Sure enough, it's the same one she ran into back in episode 7, as the carrier is still missing an eye, and Nagato orders her to take it out, with Kongou as her only escort. This is made a little more jarring by the fact that just moments before, she ordered another group of girls to take out the previous carrier, and now she doesn't just order them to fire a few salvos at the third carrier.

A common plot of {{filler}} episodes, especially those of the ADayInTheLimelight variety. A side-effect of ItsUpToYou. See also PlanBResolution if the one it's all up to wasn't the first choice. DieHardOnAnX is this when a location is taken over by antagonists and only one person is able to stop them.

* [[Videogame/PokemonMysteryDungeon "though the parting may hurt, the rest I leave in your hands"]]


* In ''ComicBook/TheFlash'', this is the premise of ''Bart Saves the Universe''. After the time-travelling supervillain Extant tricks the Linear Men into messing up the timestream, Bart is the only one who can stop him since his nature as a Kid from the Future renders him a time anomaly who is unaffected by the Butterfly Effect Extant caused.

* In ''VisualNovel/WhenHeavenSpitsYouOut'', Ryan is faced with this when he is corralled into a boys-vs-girls baseball game by his new friend and roommate, Janie. To add to the pressure, the scores are tied.

* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Divided We Fall" has the entire original core seven completely trounced by [[FanNickname Brainthor]]... except for The [[PluckyComicRelief Flash]] who then proceeds to circle the ''globe'' in a matter of seconds in order to build up the momentum to beat the everloving crap out of him.

** The most egregious case is probably the episode "The Zeppo", where everybody is so busy preventing the return of the SealedEvilInACan, that they overlook the more immediate threat of four zombie jocks (ItMakesSenseInContext) planning to blow up the school (incidentally killing the Scoobies and freeing said evil). Guess who's deemed too fragile to deal with the tentacled ancient evil, and ends up taking care of the bomb-making zombies, instead.

** The effectiveness of Rose Tyler appears to be almost exactly inversely proportional to her proximity to the Doctor -- especially notable when she near-singlehandedly ''saves the world'' at the end of season one... but in "The Christmas Invasion", which occurs less than twenty-four hours later, claims (and proves) to be completely useless on her own. This is, however, [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the fact that at the end of series one, she [[spoiler:absorbed the time vortex, rendering her ''immensely'' powerful]], while in "The Christmas Invasion", that power is gone, she is completely on her own, and she doesn't really know what to do.
** Even more true in series 4 in that she A. warns the doctor of the impending end of the universe B. sends Donna to the main dimension and C. kicks some Dalek can with her {{BFG}} all while having been trapped in an ''alternate dimension'' leading to several [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments of Awesome.]]
** The episode "Blink" has the Doctor trapped in 1969, only being able to saved by ordinary girl Sally Sparrow. Indeed, the Doctor even tells her "It's all up to you. Good luck."

* "Out of Time", the final episode of the sixth season of ''Series/RedDwarf'' sees each each of the main characters killed by their future selves until the only one left is the cowardly Rimmer, who must save the day all by himself... and remarkably, shows the cojones to do so.

* From the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', at one point the Global Guardians were all captured by the BigBad EldritchAbomination Dagon... leaving the job of stopping the super-villain to a squad of B- and C-list heroes who had previously been operating in the Guardians' collective shadow.


** Turns out the trope was played with. Every Titan except Robin survived, assembled small team and rushed to a Legion of Doom HQ on their own thinking [[AllUpToYou it was all up to them]]. Kind of was to be expected after Robin destroyed all means of communication they used.
