* The original ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' and its [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII sequel]] both heavily involve cyberpunk themes. While the power of the authorities in both games are religious in nature rather than technological, they do use technology to communicate their message (it brings to mind the large television screens the Messians would use to broadcast propaganda. Beyond that, the grey featureless walls, the endless maze-like architecture and people dressed in rags with advanced technology at their side all plays on this theme. ALthough ShinMegamiTenseiII played this trope straighter

Cyberpunk tends to be pretty hard on the MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness, usually lingering between a 4 and a 5. This makes it one of the more realistic genres of sci-fi, but also makes older stories be very prone to {{Zeerust}}. Creator/WilliamGibson himself, considered the godfather of the Cyberpunk genre, has said [[TechnologyMarchesOn that he was massively shortsighted on the advances in technology that would occur over the next three decades]]. The infamous "three megabytes of hot RAM" in ''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}'' are [[HilariousInHindsight laugh-inducing]] to a modern audience who consider an eight gigabyte MP3 player to be one of the cheap and low-capacity ones.

ones -- and even moreso to mid-2010's audiences who've already eschewed outdated MP3 players in lieu of smartphones that now integrate music playback features into their core systems. Technology marches on, indeed.

* Similar to ''Film/{{Brazil}}'', the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KxtgS2lU94 music video]] of Music/{{Bjork}}'s "Army of Me" has shades of this (technology and tone-wise) and DieselPunk (visually).

Added DiffLines:

* Combined with UrbanFantasy is ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', where half of the franchise features high-tech technology and social conflict. It also involves some magic practitioners who try to have high technology destroyed. Though the mostly idealistic nature has it lean more towards PostCyberpunk.
