* ''Film/GhostInTheShell'' naturally, being the LiveActionAdaptation of the anime and manga, retains all of the CyberPunk motifs and themes of its source material. However, it is a straighter example of this genre as it lacks many of the PostCyberPunk themes of the original.

* Creator/JohnBrunner's ''Literature/TheShockwaveRider'' invented the concept of an internet worm / virus long before the WWW, and it gave us a hacker hero long before ''WarGames''. The other two books in Brunner's triptych - ''The Sheep Look Up'' and ''Literature/StandOnZanzibar'' also form a major part of the foundation of what would be later called cyberpunk. Interestingly, Gibson noted the ''The Sheep Look Up'' is one of the few novels pre-to-post cyberpunk that came anywhere close to hitting the prediction nail on the head. And if you have read "Sheep" you realize this is not a good thing ...

* While Scar Symmetry has written songs with cyberpunk-like themes before, the first entry int he concept album trilogy ''The Singularity'' covers the rise of artificial intelligences and the social strife their emergence causes, along with transhumanists who implant the technology directly into their bodies, further sowing chaos. Considering the final track of the first (and so-far only) album is named ''Technocalyptic Cybergeddon'', one can draw their own conclusions as to how well the story ends.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Infinity}}'' has major cyberpunk elements. Much of the Human Sphere is dominated by MasterComputer ALEPH, which engages in regular manipulations; the Nomads reject this, especially those on the ships Tunguska (which has the "mercenary hacker" elements in spades) and Bakunin (which is an ideological riot containing every belief system that rejects ALEPH). Part of the reason the Combined Army was [[OutsideContextProblem such a rude shock]] was that everyone was used to running around in cyberpunk info-wars conflicts against other human powers in a struggle for the top spot, and then suddenly they ran into an alien superpower in possession of vastly superior technology which had never signed the Geneva Convention equivalent for taking care of [[BodyBackupDrive Cubes]].
