* BilingualBonus: The flavor text for Harbinger and Apocalypse are written in Baudot Code, a binary character system used by teleprinters. They translate to "I AM BECOME DEATH" and "THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS" respectively, recalling Oppenheimer's famous quote.

** The flavor text for the Wyrm icebreaker? "[[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Fire and ichor...]]"
** The arrangement of the clones in the Nisei Mk. II card is strongly reminiscent of the Precogs from Film/MinorityReport

Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGreyMorality: More evident in ''Netrunner'' than the original. The corps have dubious morality and manipulate public interests to fulfil their own goals, [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans but they have legitimately improved life for most people in the process]]. On the other hand, some of the runners include selfish criminals with no real grievance against the Corps, and are willing to do some dirty work to achieve their own ends as well.

* {{Cyberpunk}}: Very much steeped in the genre.

* {{Cyberpunk}}: Very much steeped in the genre. The original version, in fact, is actually tied into the Cyberpunk tabletop game, to the point one sourcebook (''Rache Bartmoss' Brainware Blowout'') had rules for using the game as a replacement for the clunky netrunning rules.

* AndroidsArePeopleToo: In ''Android: Netrunner'', the Hass-Bioroid faction specialises in AI and Androids. In the verse, they're running a PR campaign to get them accepted as people.

* MegaCorp: The corporation is obviously the embodiment of this trope. The four current corporate factions have their hands in nearly everything in society. Between them, very few things are outside their collective influence.

* BigBrotherIsWatching: In ''Android: Netrunner'', the NBN faction, besides owning almost all the media, specialises in knowing everything about the runner, which in game mechanics translate in "tags" that allow the corp to cripple the runner. There is even an NBN card named Big Brother.
* BlandNameProduct: "Diesel gives you flames!"

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In the original game, one of the Runner's possible victory conditions is giving the Corp enough Bad Publicity points that this trope no longer applies to them. Bad publicity was kept in the modern version of the game, but it only gets the Runners more financial resources to attack the Corporation and does not make them win by itself.
