* RavagedEarth, a SavageWorlds setting by RealityBlurs. It is 30+ years after the [[WarOfTheWorlds Martian invasion]], and the world has undergone drastic changes thanks to the effects of the alien metal the Martians' tripods were made of.

A PunkPunk genre of SpeculativeFiction based on the [[TheRoaringTwenties 1920s]]
- 1950s period, spiced up with retro-futuristic innovations and
occult elements. The dieselpunk narrative is characterized by conflict vs the [[CrapsackWorld undefeatable]] ([[LostWorld nature]], [[CityNoir society]], [[CosmicHorrorStory cosmic]]), strong use of technology, and GreyAndGrayMorality. The protagonists are often HeroicNeutral and have low social status.

Period technology encompasses everything found in SteamPunk, but
internal combustion and electric power in combination with new materials
(better alloys, plastics, etc) makes machinery lighter, stronger, and more
versatile. The airliner is the prime example of this, but cars, trucks,
tractors, and diesel-powered electrical generators are even more important
in reshaping the world. [[TankGoodness Armored]] [[MilitaryMashupMachine vehicles]] and useable submarines are less
common but still important innovations. Wireless radio leads to the rise of
broadcasting as an information medium. Anachronistic super-advanced
technology, often of the AwesomeButImpractical variety, such as GiantFlyer,
SpiderTank, DisintegratorRay might occur. Such technology might be secret
super weapons of a villain, or HomemadeInventions by the hero or his friends.

Also called "Ottensian" Dieselpunk after Nick Ottens, some guy on the Internet, who postulated it. This is the most optimistic form of dieselpunk. Progress seems unstoppable
and the future is bright. Things are designed to be stylish and opulent, ornamental and
efficient at the same time. Think Bauhaus architecture and design, ArtDeco, Expressionism, the 1939 New York World Fair. A good setting for a ScienceHero.

Similar to Diesel Deco, but generally DarkerAndEdgier. Emphasizes the
downside of economic and technological progress. Society is plagued by
crime and corruption, technology seems to be at its most effective in
producing increasingly effective weaponry. The occult basically amounts to
BlackMagic (including [[ReligionIsMagic exotic religions]]),
SealedEvilInACan might turn up in an archeological dig and subsequently
have to be stopped to avoid TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

UsefulNotes/WorldWarII did start and ended because there isn't anything left to fight
over, and very few resources left to fight with, or even to sustain
civilization. It's essentially a post-apocalyptic milieu, and certainly not a very common dieselpunk flavor.

* ''OBrotherWhereArtThou'' does to the interbellum/Depression period what other dieselpunk films do to the deco and war periods.
* ''SinCity'' doesn't actually include dieselpunk tech elements (although an incredibly high-tech medical science is at least hinted at), but as a revisionist neo-noir, it's definitely got a dieselpunk attitude.
