In R2, [[spoiler:first girl (sorta) Shirley was shot to death by potential GayOption Rolo, leaving Kallen as the only plausible option. In the end, Lelouch rejects Kallen shortly before his death.]]

*** In For most of the case general pool of marriageable men, Cherche is the last marriageable woman to join the party. There are two exceptions: Virion has known Cherche for far longer than the rest of the party, so his Last Girl is also Olivia, while Henry joins after Cherche and has no Last Girl.
*** For the marriagable women (including
Sumia, the girl with the smallest pool of prospect boyfriends, boyfriends), the last one to come into action Last Guy is SociopathicHero Henry.



** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
*** In ''Birthright'', the Last Girl for a male Avatar is Scarlet. For the female Avatar, Shura is the Last Guy to be encountered in the story while Yukimura is the Last Guy to join the party.
*** In ''Conquest'', the Last Guy for a female Avatar is Izana. For the male Avatar, Charlotte is the Last Girl to be encountered in the story while Flora is the Last Girl to join the party.

* [[TomboyishName Jack]] in ''Videogame/MassEffect2'' is the last female love interest [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] meets that provides the romance achievement. Although romancing her is the most challenging, it pays off in the end since she does have one of the most heartwarming moments her character [[LoveRedeems experiences]].

* Considering that the player chooses what supports to have, there is always the potential for the last person to be used in ''VideoGame/FireEmblem''. However, there are cases that are more obvious than others...
** MysteriousWaif Sophia in the case of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem 6's]] Roy. And in ''Fire Emblem 7'', either Fiora for his dad Eliwood, or Farina for Lilina's dad Hector. Hector himself is the Last Guy for Lyndis. And there's Sain as Last Guy for Rebecca, and Farina doubling as Last Girl for Kent...
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', BadassBookworm Saleh is the last of Eirika's potential husbands that we meet, regardless of route. He fits the trope if they hook up through supports.
** In the case of Eirika's brother Ephraim, there's [[WellExcuseMePrincess L'Arachel]]... Who is also Last Girl for Innes, if chosen over Eirika or Vanessa.
*** Male version: Ewan is the last of Amelia's possible love interests introduced (Franz can recruit her in both routes, so he's First Guy by default. And Ross joined the part a little after Franz did, so he's in the middle).
*** Kyle is Last Guy for Lute, contrasting with First Guy Artur. Marisa is the last girl for Joshua, but in the case of Gerik it depends on which path one choose.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'':
*** Out of Chrom's bachelorettes the last one to arrive is ShrinkingViolet Olivia. She can marry Chrom ''in the same chapter she appears''! (And the game even [[LampshadeHanging pokes fun]] [[LoveAtFirstSight at it]]!)
*** In the case of Sumia, the girl with the smallest pool of prospect boyfriends, the last one to come into action is SociopathicHero Henry.
*** Since his Paralogue is the last one to be unlocked, it's extremely likely that [[spoiler: Priam]] will be this for a Female Avatar if he's the chosen boyfriend/husband for her. If the PlayerCharacter is a male, however, the Last Girl is [[spoiler: Aversa]], shall she be recruited.

*** [[RebelliousPrincess Tailtiu]] is the last of Lewyn's potential wives to appear, and she fits the trope if you hook them up ([[DiscOneNuke Which quite a few people do]]), but is non-canon. Brigid the archer is also this to every unpaired male, but especially fellow Archers Jamke and Midir, who start out being in love with her sister Edain... which is questioned to be LovingAShadow in both their Lover Conversations at the end of Gen 1.

*** Lex/Tailtiu and Azelle/Tailtiu are both cases of First Girl and Last Girl; she's their childhood friend, but both guys start out with crushes on Ayra and Edain, respectively.
*** Mostly Azelle. Lex didn't know Ayra until she was recruited. Azelle, on the other hand, had his entire reason for joining with Sigurd as a way to be close to Edain.

* Tidus meets Yuna as the last of the three female leads in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', and ends up snogging her in that beautiful underwater scene in Macalania Woods. Subverted the other way around: Tidus may be the last of the male leads Yuna meets, but CoolOldGuy, [[PettingZooPeople Petting Zoo Person]] ({{Squick}}) and BigBrotherMentor, however, don't qualify as love interests. The only other potential love interest in the game is Seymour, which appears much later. But [[spoiler: since Seymour is a psycho]], [[FirstGirlWins Tidus wins by default]].

* [[AnythingThatMoves Zevran Arainai]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is the last romanceable companion to be recruited, as by the time you encounter him, Lothering is closed off permanently, [[PermanentlyMissableContent thus preventing you from recruiting]] [[NunTooHoly Leliana]] [[PermanentlyMissableContent if you haven't done so already.]]

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Sebastian is the last possible love interest to join the gang, as he cannot become a companion until Act 2 - but only if you have his DLC and are playing a female Hawke. Otherwise, it's one of the four recruited in Act 1 (Fenris, Anders, Merrill, or Isabela), who can be acquired in almost any order; Anders and Merrill are required by the game, so the last one is likely to be either Fenris or Isabela.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has the most potential romances in the franchise to date, although they vary based on the player character's race and gender. Four of them belong to either your starting party or your advisory council; of the four who have to be actively recruited, only one - Sera - is female. If the player recruits all the other companions while still in Haven and does the quest "Champions of the Just," then the last romanceable companion to join the crew will be Dorian.



** While the VisualNovel elements that became a mainstay of the series weren't present in ''{{VideoGame/Persona 2}}'', a similar effect comes into play with a potentially romantic demon contact option Tatsuya (the PlayerCharacter of ''Innocent Sin'') can obtain late in the game. Depending on how the player respond to Lisa Silverman's question after the boss battle with [[EnemyWithout her Shadow]], Tatsuya can form a romantic contact option with Lisa herself, with [[CoolBigSis Maya Amano]] (both being childhood friends of his)...or with [[spoiler:the [[HoYay very male]] Jun Kurosu]], who is also the final playable character to join the party.

It is recommended that, if this rule is in effect, the entire UnwantedHarem appear in the first episode [[FanDumb for the sake of the poor writers' health]]. A ThirdOptionLoveInterest ''can'' win -- even a girl who we meet near the end of the very last episode can win -- but DieForOurShip will inevitably descend upon her. That's okay for the series in question (since it's over), but it could cause problems for the sequel. If the last girl turns out to be the first girl, this is FirstGirlAfterAll.

If the last girl turns out to be the first girl, this is FirstGirlAfterAll.
