Hi @Calbuja ,

To show the top N values and a specific value in a line chart in Power BI, you can follow these steps:

  1. Add a line chart to your report. 
  2. Add the field you want to display on the X-axis to the Axis field well.
  3. Add the field you want to display on the Y-axis to the Values field well.
  4. Click on the Y-axis and select "Field Value" under the "Data" section of the Visualizations pane.
  5. In the "Field Value" dialog box, select "Top N" and enter the number of values you want to display.
  6. To display a specific value, you can add a reference line by clicking on "Analytics" in the Visualizations pane and selecting "Reference Line".
  7. In the "Reference Line" dialog box, enter the value you want to display and customize the appearance as desired.

If the above one can't help you, please provide some raw data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It would be helpful to find out the solution. You can refer the following links to share the required info:

And It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.
