A 1984 [[FilmNoir noir]] novel by Creator/WilliamGibson, and TropeCodifier for an entire generation of SciFi stories. '''''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}''''' is the primary example of {{Cyberpunk}} alongside ''Film/BladeRunner'', showcasing the cynical use of technology so characteristic of that genre. Most modern stories related to CyberPunk, CyberSpace and related tropes can be largely traced back to this one story. It is also the first of Gibson's famous ''Literature/SprawlTrilogy'' (followed by ''Literature/CountZero'' and ''Literature/MonaLisaOverdrive'').

* BilingualBonus: Case's journey starts off at a bar called ''Chatsubo'', which is Japanese for a specific type of jar or urn used to store matcha tea leaves. He soon afterwards finds himself in another bar named ''Jarre de Thé'', which in turn is French for 'jar of tea' [[note]]the name '''could''' also simply be translated as 'teapot' however, in French the term ''théière'' would be a much more common denomination of such an object[[/note]]. So in a way he travels from one "jar of tea" to another.

* BadAss:
** Molly, a StreetSamurai of the "razorgirl" variety. She has mirrored lenses surgically implanted over her eyes that allow her to see in the dark. She is incapable of crying since her tear ducts were re-routed into her mouth. Crying for Molly means spitting, which actually tells you a lot about her. She has [[SuperReflexes cybernetically-enhanced reflexes]], [[WolverineClaws retractable double-edged scalpel blades]] under her fingernails, and is a deadly shot with a flechette-pistol firing poison or explosive darts. Surprisingly she [[spoiler:spends most of the novel's climax in an improvised hospital bed.]]
** Hideo, Tessier-Ashpool's cloned ninja assassin.
