Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheWitcher'' is a StandardFantasySetting with an outcast professional being dragged into doing the dirty work of powerful people while trying to cling on to his sense of decency.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has Noir influences all over it, right from the introduction of the Illusive Man and Miranda. But it's especially prominent in pretty much everything you do on Omega and Ilium. Both places are corrupt hotbeds of organized crime and gang violence lit up by neon lights. As one character puts it, Ilium basically ''"Omega, just with fancy shoes"''.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil|2015}}'' starts off leaning towards more mundane noir (bar the presence of Matt's super-powered radar-like "vision") and gradually introduces the more fantastic Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse elements like [[spoiler: the Japanese gangsters actually being ninjas, and a Chinese drug baron who's ''possibly'' from an extradimensional city of mystical kung-fu masters.]]
