* The UrExample is Post-Impressionism, a term used by art historians to describe artists like Vincent van Gogh, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, or Paul Gauguin, who built upon the innovations of the Impressionists and took painting to new styles of expression. Not so much a cohesive art movement as a bunch of loosely-affiliated, like-minded yet fiercely independent artists.

** And in recent years, there's been a growing movement towards what has been called "Post-Post Modernism", which is a rejection of PostModernism in the same way PostModernism is a rejection of Modernism.

* PostCyberPunk tries to move beyond the cynicism and hopelessness of CyberPunk in various ways, such as giving hope for the future (TheMatrix Trilogy does this with a messiah figure), showing the upside of technological progress, as well as the down side (works that focus entirely on the bright side of cyber-punk technologies are called "cyber prep") or by parodying or deconstructing Cyber punk tropes (''Literature/SnowCrash'' and ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' come to mind.)
* {{Reconstruction}} could be said to be "Post-{{Deconstruction}}", in that it tries to move the genre beyond the criticism of the deconstruction, while at the same time accepting said criticism.
