* ''Film/MinorityReport''. It's a gritty noir tale set in 2054, and though it deals with cyberpunk themes such as BigBrotherIsWatching and SinisterSurveillance, its not a complete [[{{Dystopia}} dystopia]] and everything is actually quite shiny and clean. Washington, D.C. has the lowest crime rates in the country thanks to the Pre-Crime Division. There's some [[{{Irony}} irony]] for you...

In Japan, the tropes that would make up Post-Cyberpunk have been a part of their science-fiction worldview since as long as {{anime}} have existed, [[UnbuiltTrope predating Cyberpunk itself]]. The incredibly influential ''Manga/AstroBoy'' portrayed technology as having the potential for both great good and great evil from the very beginning, and the PunkPunk elements were largely imported later and were never quite as popular in Japan as they were in the United States.

The Post-9/11 atmosphere of 21st Century America also saw a marked decrease in heroes who were decidedly anti-establishment. The glut of patriotism and the War on Terror have also decreased public resistance to corporate greed and uncontrolled capitalism. Despite the dystopian nature of cyberpunk settings, it was frequently assumed that race, gender, nationality, and sexual orientation would be non-issues in the future, the rationale being that the last generation that really cared would have almost died out by then. However, now that society is in the chronological era that the majority of cyberpunk depicted, issues surrounding identitarian politics are still not only alive, but even more volatile than ever, threatening to make society more divisive. As a result, post cyberpunk is often required to shelve more futurist themes and focus on existing social issues that have carried over from the past millennium. Additionally, it is far more difficult (bordering on impossibility) to operate anonymously or in the shadows outside of the system (the "Punk" aspect of Cyberpunk) or under dual/false identities. The increase of security profiling, monitoring, hidden surveillance and current forensics technology is making it less and less possible to move around without leaving fingerprints or footprints of some type, digital or otherwise. And today, there is now the understanding that there is no anonymity or privacy on the internet.
