* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', first and only in the franchise. [[AIIsACrapshoot Troubles with artificial intelligence]] aside, its main message: is it really practical to make the human element obsolete?

* 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").
