This has puzzled me for quite some time.

Why can't there be a few?

I would be like "Dude, I'm totally ok with there being any number of us"

Because it is hard - if it was easy then everyone would be the one.

...and anyway, what if you didn't really care about The Prize per se, but just played becaused you didn't feel like getting your head cut off?

Seriously Man, you can be the one, just leave my head alone.

@chai2,
I am not sure you are clear on the concept Chai. If Linkat is going to be the one, she has to cut your head off.

(The tea ploy is clever, but it won't work. I am pretty sure the Highlanders were immune to poison.)

I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

@dalehileman,
Immortal.

The Immortals are fictional characters from the movie and TV series
"The Highlander" who live according to a set of rules.

The Rules
The Immortals do not live as a united people on a territory of their own,
but are scattered around the world and across history. The only bond
between them are oral traditions called the Rules transmitted from
teacher to student. The creator of the Rules is unknown. The Rules are
never enumerated, like a body of laws, but they are quoted according to
the circumstances. They are taught to newborn Immortals by Immortal
mentors called First Teachers.

The main Rules are:

No Immortal may fight on Holy Ground, no matter who regards it as Holy

Immortal combat is one on one only — no outside interference

Mortals must not learn about Immortals — if you are killed, you move on

At the last, all Immortals will feel drawn to a distant land, to fight for the
Prize — this is the time of the Gathering

In the end, there can be only one — the last one will receive all the
power of all the Immortals who ever lived

@George,
Thank you Geo most kindly

Makes me think of "our" religion, apodictical existential pantheism, where your soul is everything about you except your body

I am confused. For the moment let's put aside the television series. After the first Highlander movie he took the head of the last immortal making Connor MacLeod the last one. Why were there three more Highlander movie sequels after the first Highlander movie with the timeline being continuous? I thought he was the last. One of those three sequels had aliens or immortals come from another planet. When they had these alien immortals coming from another planet to fight Connor MacLeod, I was completely loss. With all of these sequels, I guess Connor MacLeod was not the last. There can only be one doesn't make any sense when there are always more immortal written in the story.

Now let's get back to the television series. I believe the first episode had Connor MacLeod from the movie talking to Duncan MacLeod on the television series transitioning the end of the first movie to the beginning of the television series. The television series was a direct continuation of the movie years after Connor MacLeod had took the head of the last immortal in the first Highlander movie. Again, just like the movie sequels, I thought Connor MacLeod was the last immortal, because there can only be one. I am so confused.
