There is also a steampunk genre of music (see Music, below), an element of cosplay, and the intersection with the Maker movement as described above (with designers such as Jake von Slatt receiving some mainstream attention). The [[{{Wikipedia}} Other Wiki]] also has an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/steampunk article]] about steampunk as well.

* ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'' is easily the best known example in anime, being loosely inspired by [[JulesVerne Jules Verne's]] ''"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"''. Everything fom the setting (1889 France), characters and costume designs, to oceanic travel aboard [[AppliedPhlebotinum phlebotinum powered]] submarines, and ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld, adheres to a 'Golden Age' aesthetic.

Added DiffLines:

* A number of works by Creator/MohiroKitoh are steampunk, though with a [[DarkerAndEdgier greater emphasis on the "punk" aspect]]. These include the short story collection ''Manga/WingsOfVendemiaire'' and his currently-running series ''Manga/FutagoNoTeikoku''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the Fire Nation boasts Industrial-Age innovations, such as trains and tanks powered by coal, steam, and firebending. Most of these were commissioned by extorting an expatriate Earth Kingdom inventor, the Mechanist, who dwells within a sanctuary maintained by steam-operated mechanisms and whose prize invention is a large, sophisticated steam-powered telescope. This is unsurprising, since Ghibli's works were one of the things that influenced ''Avatar'''s creators. The show got really steampunky in season two, where a colossal drilling machine was introduced. Then in the third there were ''jet skis'', and Fire Nation engineers invented ''zeppelins'' by reverse-engineering a previously introduced hot-air balloon. Indeed, the original concept set the series in a futuristic environment, but the idea was scrapped in favor of an ancient feel; nonetheless, some technology was preserved during the change in setting. What makes the Fire Nation's steampunk technology particularly notable is that, unlike the more {{Magitek}} technology of the other nations, much/most of it doesn't need any bending to operate.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' (the SequelSeries to ''Avatar'') initially takes place in Republic City, described as a "steampunk metropolis" on the official website and set in its world's equivalent of TheRoaringTwenties. Technology seen includes more (and more advanced) zeppelins, cameras, cars, radios, and electronic speakers. However, aside from the zeppelins, most of the technology shown is actually not much different from the tech of the real-life 1920's, to the point where ''Korra'' actually slots better into the category of DieselPunk. That said, we do get steam(?)-powered battle mechs later in the series.

* ''Webcomic/Clockwork'': So far, the comic seems to take place in a post-industrial era with steampunk technology. There are airships—Arcadia's main military advantage over Mercia—as well as various mechs and smaller craft.

Compare with cyberpunk, which shares some similarities with steampunk.

steampunk, and TeslaTechTimeline, the result of moving one step further up the industrial scale, past the steam and gears and into steel and electricity.

* ''VisualNovel/DetectiveHankAndTheGoldenSneeze'' has a couple of very steampunky moments, including a steampunk... mobile phone.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1SXMwYRRGk This commercial]] from Italian liqueur maker Amaro Lucano plays whimsically with the steampunk trope. White tie party goers in 1894 engage in such modern pastimes as texting (with portable telegraph keys), selfies (with a folding plate camera on a selfie stick), and scratching (a DJ using two Victrola phonographs).
