* In general, ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' tends to be on the PostCyberpunk end of the spectrum. ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' is closest to Cyberpunk, thanks to being written by the writer of ''[[Anime/SerialExperimentsLain Lain]]''. There's a secret government conspiracy, monitoring everything and conducting dark experiments; the heroes are young streetwise punks who befriend what are, ''essentially'', rouge AIs. They end up subverting the government conspiracy, and stopping more dangerous AIs. Philosophical questions about life arise. Granted, as it's part of a Mons children's series, on the whole it's not as grim as other examples here, but by the same coin, it's pretty heavy for a "shonen" series (and is sometimes criticized for being ''so'' different in tone than its stable-mates).

* [[Creator/IsaacAsimov Asimov's]] novel ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'' anticipates the dystopian urban decay, and the bland foods made from yeast. As seen in one scene in Lije's home it's a luxury to eat actual chicken with your family, let a lone eat it in the comfort of your own home.

** 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.

* ''EclipsePhase'' straddles the line between CyberPunk and {{Transhumanism}}. On the one hand, many people do wind up with a totally different understanding of culture, life, and even humanity, and on the other, there are even more trying to keep the old forms of government and commerce alive... often as a means to control others. Also, from the outside, the more transhuman beings usually appear horrifying and incomprehensible.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: DirgeOfCerberus'' covers cyberpunk themes like virtual reality, consciousness transference, and is about a Noir-ish AntiHero battling a {{Transhuman}} who had put his mind into the Internet. It's much fluffier and more magically based than you would usually associate with cyberpunk, though, and never asks any really tricky questions about identity.
