* Creator/WilliamGibson is often referred to as the father of the genre; he created the word "cyberspace", and, despite his lack of technical knowledge, his novel ''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}'' was the prototype for much of what followed. He followed this up with ''Literature/CountZero'' and ''Literature/MonaLisaOverdrive''.

* ''WesternAnimation/GetEd'' started out as an animated action show about futuristic couriers. As it went on, episodes became more character-driven, stories began to focus on a CorruptCorporateExecutive with an army of [[CloningBlues clones]] and robots at his disposal wanting to take control over the city. The main heroes have to try and one-up the baddie with superior tech-savviness and impropmtu inventions. The series [[BittersweetEnding ended bittersweetly]] with the heroes [[spoiler:thwarting the [[BigBad Big Bad]]'s apocalypse brought about via technology]] at a heavy cost. Had the series not been ScrewedByTheNetwork, the second season would have gone even more deeply into DarkerAndEdgier CyberPunk territory.

The plot will more than likely take place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in some CityNoir, IndustrialGhetto or CrapsackWorld that tends to be marked by [[WretchedHive crime, cultural nihilism]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] [[CyberpunkWithAChanceOfRain bad weather]], where cutting-edge technology [[GoneHorriblyWrong only ends up being used by everyone for the sake of selfish]] [[CorruptCorporateExecutive profit]] and [[BreadAndCircuses pleasure]] ("the street finds its own uses for things").

* ''ChaosHead''. Surprisingly, being set in present day, its tone is probably more modern than numerous other futuristic fictions.
** Its successor ''SteinsGate'' delves even deeper into cyberpunk themes, though it may be considered more PostCyberPunk

* ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'' is a cyberpunk musical.
* ''{{Sneakers}}'' an unconventional choice, as it's based on the (then) present and features only one technological wonder (the {{Macguffin}}), but it touches on several of the basic tropes and themes of cyberpunk and hacker cinema. There's a gang of genius quasi-criminals, shady .gov types, and this quote:

* ''Film/{{Sneakers}}'' has all the markings of Cyberpunk, except for being set NextSundayAD, and thus lacking in the chrome.

* ''Film/{{Sneakers}}'' has all the markings of Cyberpunk, except for being set NextSundayAD, and thus lacking in the chrome. It's also rather more optimistic than most Cyberpunk works.

* ''{{Blame}}'', much like ''Film/TheMatrix'' description below, takes the Cyberpunk genre to its extreme limits and ironically becomes ''less'' like traditional Cyberpunk as a result.
