* ''VideoGame/{{Observer}}'' practically bleeds this. It's heavily modelled on BladeRunner, even bringing in Rutger Hauer to play the main character, and deals with mindjacking, nanite plagues, a single monolithic corporation running most of Western society, and creates a world in which not being augmented makes you weird and rare.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob|SquarePants}}'' darkfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8490979/1/Cyberpunk-An-underwater-dystopia Cyberpunk: An underwater dystopia]]'', as its name may suggest, has many elements of this genre due the setting takes place [[TheFuture 4014]] and thanks to humans using their location nuclear testing site.

* Website/{{Fenspace}}: The space station [[http://www.fenspace.net/index.php5?title=Genaros Genaros]] (an elongated [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernal_sphere Bernal sphere]]) was built with this aesthetic firmly in mind. Itís always dusk-dim inside it -- the stationís windows were deliberately tinted to let in little light -- and the interior is completely covered with neon, concrete (imported from Earth) and steel, with not a trace of green outside the stationís hydroponic food facilities. On top of everything else, there's sprinklers that simulate rain and holographic displays to make the sky look "[[Literature/{{Neuromancer}} like a television tuned to a dead channel]]". Thereís no practical reason it ''had'' to be this way, mind -- [[InvokedTrope it's built the way it is because that's how the station's 22,000 residents like it]].






* ''Film/{{Elysium}}'': The elite live on a high-tech space station with casual cures for cancer, while Earth is a CrapsackWorld of poverty and squalor kept oppressed with robot police and cyber-enhanced thugs.
** Frankly, anything directed by Creator/NeillBlomkamp falls into this genre to some extent or another. ''Film/DistrictNine'' is probably the farthest from it, and its aesthetic is still roughly in line with the genre.

* ''VideoGame/{{Scrapland}}'' is set on a planet Earth that's been polluted to the point it can no longer sustain life, and abandoned by humanity. The robots stayed behind, and formed their own society out of the junk and scrap the humans left behind, ultimately renaming the planet "Scrapland".

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed but still clear cut in ''VideoGame/TheSilverCase'', especially in the Kamuidrome case which focuses on the Internet and resembles an episode of ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain''. Themes in the game include the divide between those with information and those without, with information being treated as a commodity that those in power have a lot of.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{killer7}}'' gets into this in the target Alter Ego. Although it starts off being about a comic book author, by the end it's about underground gamers playing on the illegal private internet. One might surmise from this that ''killer7'' in general might take place in a cyberpunk world even though the work itself only sometimes brushes with the genre.

* ''Anime/ArmitageIII'' is incredibly similar to ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'', and predated the movie (but not the manga) by a year. (Both series revolve around female robotic law enforcers solving crimes perpetrated by or against robots, and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman both tackle]] [[SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence similar themes.]]

Expect the scientific philosophy of {{transhumanism}} to be a feature, what with ArtificialLimbs and [[BrainComputerInterface cable jacks in the skull]] that allow access to [[CyberSpace artificial realities]]. [[InstantAIJustAddWater Artificial intelligences]] and {{artificial human}}s (sometimes [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul corrupted]]) are everywhere, while EverythingIsOnline. This leads to a theme of "loss of distinction between real and artificial" on which philosophical and existential conflicts about transhumanism can arise, such as questions on the nature of identity and "WhatMeasureIsANonHuman."
