This is a plot where the remainders of a group, especially an entire race, must be protected from extinction. Occasionally, the final two actually do perish, but not before producing offspring who repopulate the species.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })This, of course, ignores real population genetics, where a certain minimum number of genetically divergent (i.e. unrelated) individuals are needed in a gene pool to maintain a healthy genetic diversity over the generations. For humans it is an estimated 497 individuals (no joke) although 1,000+ is to be preferred. The general rule of thumb is the "50/500" guideline — that a population founded by 50 genetically diverse humans in isolation would last about 2,000 years before inbreeding did them in, while 500 or more stand a chance of lasting indefinitely so long as all of them reproduce and no major disasters wipe out a significant part of the gene pool during that time (although as with everything else involving genetics, this is a gross oversimplification and varies greatly with the conditions encountered).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Needless to say, you won't find this in direct siblings. More casually, this results in the unspoken implication that said newly propagated species does not have a problem with incest. This rarely comes up.
In particularly anvilicious scenarios, the two survivors who rebirth their species will actually be named "Adam" and "Eve", or some fairly obvious variations on those names. This is sometimes called a Shaggy God Story.
Literary note: the "Adam and Eve" plot is mentioned (in a bad way) in many articles and books on writing science fiction stories. Apparently it was, for many years, one of the most over-used twist endings in the badly written stories that make up the editors' mountainous "slush pile" of wasted efforts - in fact, many editors would reject stories with this twist on sight.
Usually found coupled with a New Eden; if some manner of vehicle or protective capsule is employed, this becomes an Ark or a City in a Bottle. Often the end result of Earth All Along. May overlap with Ancient Astronauts and/or lead to Advanced Ancient Humans. Related to Last of His Kind. Sister trope of Only You Can Repopulate My Race. Not to be confused with Coitus Ensues.

Planet of the Apes:
This was actually the initial plan in the original Planet of the Apes (1968). It was scrapped when the only female crew member was killed in the crash landing.
In Planet of the Apes (2001), all humans on Ashlar (the name of the planet is given in comics) are descended from the crew of the crashed Oberon, which happened over 3000 years before. The ship doesn't look big enough to contain enough humans to sustain a population for that long, especially on a world populated by hostile insectoids and dinosaurs that even the well-organized simians have trouble dealing with.

Adventure Time has a different take on the typical Adam and Eve plot, in the episode "You Made Me!". Lemongrab refers to his creator as "his Glob" (his God.) She spends the whole episode trying to figure out how to help him. At the end of the episode, Princess Bubblegum makes Lemongrab a clone of himself, so he won't be alone. The whole plot is reminiscent of God making Eve for Adam to prevent Adam from being the only one of his kind. The whole episode revolved around existential themes, and the idea of having "the perfect mate" who makes one feel whole. Whether or not the relationship between the two Lemongrabs was romantic or platonic/brotherly love is up to the viewer.
Later episodes make it clear that they view each other as brothers and address each other as such...until the first Lemongrab eats the second, making this into another Biblical story...

Parodied in the Sluggy Freelance storyline "28 Geeks Later," when a budding Zombie Apocalypse has taken over a research facility, with several people trapped inside.
This is even funnier if you know that Zoe is the Greek version of the name Eve (they both mean "life").

In a variation, on pre-Crisis Krypton the planet was, according to legend, populated by two Human Alien space travelers named Kryp and Tonn.
Which may be why marriage between cousins was legal in Silver Age Krypton as Kal-El creepily mentions to Kara once in a discussion that very lightly hits on this topic (they would be Adam and Eve if they weren't content with letting the species die with them).

The more practical variant (about a dozen Adams and Eves) is brought up in The Matrix sequels when Neo learns that the true purpose of The One is to select 21 women and 7 men who will repopulate Zion after the machines destroy it. The machines know this will work since they've done it five times before.
Not to mention that unplugging humans out of the Matrix is their main means of increasing their numbers. Why wait for babies to grow up when there are billions of adults ready to harvest?

Mentioned in Homestuck. Dirk and Roxy are the only two living humans in a post-apocalyptic future, and Roxy, who has a crush on Dirk, entertains fantasies of the two of them repopulating the species together. Unfortunately for her, Dirk seems to be gay. It’s later revealed that repopulating the Earth in this fashion isn’t actually necessary since the ectobiology machines are capable of producing more people, and the new world the kids are supposed to make will already be populated once they create it.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home uses the animal version of this trope. This is a bit of a Double Subversion, as the animals actually do go extinct, but Time Travel rectifies the situation by bringing back the tropal two. Also, they aren't being brought forward to breed per se but to convince an alien probe not to destroy Earth. The novelization acknowledges that two (or three) individuals aren't enough to repopulate a species, so 23rd-century scientists are going to clone additional whales from cell samples preserved before the species was wiped out. (It's said that they couldn't have restored the species just by cloning, because humpback whales have enough learned behavior that they wouldn't be able to survive without someone to teach them.)

In an abandoned The Order of the Stick storyline in the newest book, "Don't Split The Party", Elan tries to set up Lien and Hinjo to breed a new generation of paladins. Lien and Hinjo are understandably annoyed with this because A) Elan obviously does not understand how paladins are created, B) Hinjo outranks Lien and sees it as a breach in behavior, and C) Lien already has a boyfriend, one that isn't a spoon fed nobleman.
Plus, there were "many" paladins that were away from Azure City the day of the battle... but we don't hear about them much. And many paladins don't work for Azure City.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender, it's stated that airbenders still existing is important both for the balance of the nations and so the next Avatar has someone to teach them, implying Aang would have to restore the Air Nomads with his descendants. This was lampshaded in a video at the San Diego ComicCon 2008. However, in The Legend of Korra, set 70 years later, we see even if only one parent is an airbender the children still can be: one of Aang's children with Katara (a waterbender) was an airbender, and three of his children with his non-bender wife are airbenders. (No word yet on if his youngest is one, he's only a baby after all.)
Beginning in season 3 of Korra, some non-benders start to develop airbending abilities following the spiritual convergence, which neatly sidesteps the mating problem.

A rather disturbing variant occurs in 28 Days Later. It's left unclear whether the leader of surviving military members at the end of the film actually believes they can repopulate the Earth (or just Britain) with the two female survivors they have left, expects to capture more women, or simply decides to keep them to placate his unit while they wait for the end.

Subverted in Futurama, where Leela falls in love with someone she believes to be another cyclops. Even when his personality gets to be too much to bear, Leela feels that she owes it to her species to repopulate. As it turns out, Alcazar was a shape-shifter - who had fooled four other girls. After Fry exposes him, the wedding is called off. Of course, it later turns out that Leela is really a sewer mutant.
In the comics, after the Professor teleports Earth's population to the dinosaur age, minus Fry, Bender, Leela and Cubert, the Omicronians show up to salvage the uninhabited Earth, unless our heroes can display one hundred Earthlings, proving Earth still has people. This trope may have been Fry's idea, earning him a slap from Leela.
Leela seems to attract this a lot. Of course, when the Adam in question is Zapp Brannigan...

The Bible is unclear how much time passed before Cain killed Abel, and it is clear that there were other children - both sons and daughters. Daughters are not tracked in the Bible unless they're very, very important. Sons are only tracked if they're relevant to the plot (Adam to Noah to Abraham to David to Jesus). Seth is not born till after Cain and mentioned as a replacement for Abel only because that's the bloodline to Noah. It's actually All There in the Manual, if you can read it in Hebrew. Anyway, the implication is that Cain married one of his sisters, which was considered acceptable because of the necessity to be fruitful and populate the Earth.

Higher Learning: Shinji and Asuka became this after the Third Impact in the original timeline. A character mentions it several times. The logical consequences do not go unmentioned.

In Annihilation (2018), the only two survivors of the excursions into the Shimmer, Lena and Kane. The Shimmer is an psychedelic Garden of Eden where they encounter an alien creature which bestows upon them new knowledge (although the knowledge is incomprehensible to human minds). At the end of the film, the Shimmer collapses and, depending on your interpretation, Lena and Kane are the last remnants of the alien's DNA, thus beginning a new species.

In one of the later ElfQuest stories, a small family of trolls find themselves stranded in a country where there are no other trolls. Flash forward a few thousand years and there are lots of trolls running around. Incest is hinted at but never stated outright.
For that matter, if we go by the story How Shall I Keep From Singing, it appears that all elves are descendant from a total of eight High Ones (and one wolf). The "no problem with inbreeding" can probably be explained with Recognition weeding out genetic defects.
One or two of the prose stories in the Blood of Ten Chiefs anthologies do name other High Ones that don't appear in How Shall I Keep From Singing, although the total population still wasn't very big.

In Titan A.E., when the hero and heroine find the eponymous ship, onboard are genetic samples for long-destroyed Earth's species. Also, in a way, they are a symbolic "Adam and Eve". However, they do not need to populate the new world, mankind has been scattered across the galaxy and thus, they only need to call humans to the new planet. But who says that they won't anyway?
