* RecycledScript: ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep''-type plots have been done [[BubblegumCrisis millions]] [[ArmitageIII of]] [[Film/BladeRunner times]] before. This is not to say it can't be done again, but you should make sure you story is not a cliché ''Film/BladeRunner'' knockoff. If your trenchcoat-clad hero fights runaway robots and doubts his own humanity... you'd better be a damn fine writer, son!

So you've decided to write a cyberpunk story. You love to read about man's fight against injustice, invasive technology and corruption, so you've decided to give your interpretation of it.

* ''Film/BladeRunner'' (Also check out its progenitor: ''DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'' by Philip K. Dick.) Ironically lacks most of the features, but the TropeCodifier in terms of scenery and atmosphere.

* TheGunslinger vs. PlayfulHacker: Your protagonist is going to have to solve their problems one way or another, [[TheMessiah it's]] [[TalkingYourWayOut not]] [[ThePowerOfLove going]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship to]] be easy. Does he or she solve her problems through the careful ([[MoreDakka or not so careful]]) application of projectiles, or are they solved through the use of viruses, trojans, denial-of-service attacks and forced intrusion?
