->''"Imagine it... The Victorian Age accelerated. Starships and missiles, fueled by coal and driven by steam. Leaving history devastated in its wake."''
-->-- '''The Doctor''', ''Series/DoctorWho'', "Tooth and Claw"

Retro-style SpeculativeFiction set in periods where steam power is king. Very often this will be in an AlternateUniverse where the internal combustion engine never displaced the steam engine, and as a result all manner of cool steam-driven technologies have emerged, ranging from UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} to [[Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea submarines;]] the plausible counterpart to {{Magitek}}, with a HollywoodScience HandWave or TheSparkOfGenius. Largely, steampunk runs on RuleOfCool. Sometimes combined with the work of Charles Babbage on mechanical computers to produce a kind of retro {{Cyberpunk}} set entirely in the Victorian era or a close analogue, with Dickensian exploitation.

Steampunk may be a modern reflection of the 1930s–40s trope of TheGayNineties, an idealized version of the 1890s. While various works may be more chronologically specific, any time from around 1860, through to the 1910's, can be considered fair game. The term "steampunk" was coined by K. W. Jeter to describe the speculative fiction stories in a Victorian setting that he, Creator/TimPowers, and James Blaylock were writing in the early 1980s in contrast to the CyberPunk stories like ''Neuromancer'' that were saturating media. Steampunk's modern incarnation may be considered a reaction to the popular dystopias of that time: the positive power of the imagination and subversion of the NewTechnologyIsEvil trope are common steampunk themes, although recent SteamPunk is increasingly likely to deal with dystopian societies, sometimes even drawing upon the works of Charles Babbage to theorize humans with mechanical brains and other things rendering them CyberPunk in all but backdrop and visual trappings.

Elements of steampunk that are set in the American frontier are usually referred to as "CattlePunk". Some writers and fans refer to the "shiny happy" version as "Victorian Fantasy", "GaslampFantasy" or "Victorian Futurism". Supernatural or paranormal tropes are more frequently included in this approach, in which case the ''Encyclopedia of Fantasy'' favours "Gaslight Romance".

The more Victorian branch of Steampunk sometimes also incorporates vaguely [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian]] elements, as shown [[http://thetentacleparadox.com/blog/?p=46 here]]. Another good example of the Lovecraftian/antediluvian influence on Steampunk would be the design of the ''Nautilus'', Captain Nemo's submarine, in the film adaptation of ''The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.'' Expect to also see a strong, visible Irish influence, in terms of such features as stained wood, brass, and American frontier-style blown glass oil lamps. You will occasionally encounter some minor overlap with the post-Victorian Art Deco movement as well, particularly in terms of typography. The [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} Zeppelin]] or could also be considered one of the major icons of Steampunk, due to the major public enthusiasm for the craft [[{{Hindenburg}} pre-1937]]. This is despite them being much more commonplace in the DieselPunk era. To be fair, though, the first airship flew in 1852, predating both the Lincoln Administration and [[OlderThanRadio radio]]- and yes, it was powered by a steam engine.

Creator/JulesVerne, the first SpeculativeFiction writer, is the king of this trope. He and HGWells are often mentioned as the foundation of a literary steampunk's reading list. For added style, however, knowledge of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Thought#Movement New Thought]] movement can help, as can [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiritualism Spiritualism]], as both of those were very popular among the Victorians, and very influential on their thinking. In addition to being a science fiction writer, Jules Verne was also a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_history Naturalist]]. The [[http://www.cosmicpolymath.com/the-victorian-ethos-percy-fawcett.html Steampunk Naturalist]], as exemplified by Verne and others such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Beebe William Beebe]], is one of Steampunk's most important subtropes.

If instead of industrial era technology, the setting has pre-industrial technology, see ClockPunk, and if it includes internal combustion engines in place of steam, see DieselPunk, though there can be crossover between them if used purely asthetically. Many examples of SteamPunk mix in a few mutated monsters (probably in homage to Charles Darwin living roughly in the era depicted), thereby bordering upon BioPunk. If it assumes the truth of Victorian-era science, it may also become an example of AllTheoriesAreTrue. Visual media (and the real life Steampunk subculture) will never miss a chance to showcase some seriously AwesomeAnachronisticApparel, and for {{Fanservice}}'s sake a woman [[OfCorsetsSexy in a corset]] must be involved at some point. As might be expected, SteamPunk fashion/costuming has a certain amount of overlap with the Gothic subculture, although the Goth look tends to be somewhat darker, and not as heavily focused on machinery as such.

Of course, [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory the difference in]] [[ValuesDissonance values]] between the Victorian era and the present are rarely mentioned, unless the work is emphasising the "Punk" side of things more than most of them do, or consciously attempting {{Deconstruction}}.

However, any Victorian-era society which actually tried to create steampunk technology would soon find itself in stark trouble. Barring [[FunctionalMagic magical intervention]], the power requirements necessary to make real-world versions of steampunk devices (or at least Victorian-era versions of 20th century technology) would be enormous, and would soon exhaust all available supplies of coal and wood. [[MohsScaleofScienceFictionHardness A real steampunk society]] would have to either immediately transform into a fully modern society (with oil, gas, and nuclear power driving devices made of modern, lighter materials) or would quickly become, in all probability, a technological dead end. With this said, the recent development of a number of designs of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocket_stove rocket stoves]] beginning in the 1980s, have demonstrated that a highly fuel efficient steam boiler may in fact not be quite so impractical after all, at least on a small scale. On this point, it is also worth mentioning that the average contemporary power station still runs primarily on large coal-fired steam turbines, and that nuclear power still actually involves running a steam turbine as well, but simply uses the heat from (ideally) contained nuclear reactions to generate steam, rather than a wood or coal-fed fire.

To a large extent, it seems like the fantasy genre is quickly moving away from traditional medieval HeroicFantasy settings and more towards settings inspired by Steampunk. Some modern fantasy authors even combine the two.

Not to be confused with {{Goth}}, although the two subcultures do share a similar fashion sense and there is some crossover. Should also be noted that SteamPunk is not rooted from the [[PunkRock Punk subculture]].

Compare with CyberPunk, which shares some similarities with SteamPunk.

Compare LowCultureHighTech, especially if the story takes place in a real-life historical period. Also compare {{Zeerust}}.

Oh, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFCuE5rHbPA glueing some gears on it]] doesn't make it steampunk. As far as hardware hacking or Makerism specifically are concerned, (as opposed to the purely fictional stuff) the Steampunk aesthetic exists on the basis of the idea that something ''looks'' good because it ''is'' good; i.e., a thing's image is an outgrowth of its (effective) fundamental design. This can be achieved in practice, by adhering to a proven engineering tradition, such as the [[http://catb.org/~esr/writings/taoup/html/ UNIX design philosophy]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j79XEgsTLoc This]] video may also help to explain further.

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.

* In [[http://adland.tv/commercials/california-lottery-strike-it-rich-scratchers-cornelius-2012-30-usa this commercial]] for the California Lottery, a man is being asked about his dog just as he wins the Lotto. He and his dog transform into steampunks, and fly away in a hot air balloon airship.

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd7F4ZDdbjk this commercial]] for Intel Ultrabook, a woman uses one of the laptops in a London Metro station. As she closes it and it converts to a tablet, the scene around her transforms into a Victorian train station and as a steam engine pulls into the station, a curious Victorian crowd gathers.
-->'''Chimney Sweep:''' Is it powered by coal and steam?
-->'''Woman:''' No... it's powered by Intel.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''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.
* ''SakuraTaisen''
* ''SteamDetectives''
* The technology of the I-Jin in ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' was definitely SteamPunk.
* The feature-length {{anime}} ''Anime/{{Steamboy}}'' is required watching for any steampunk affectionado.
* Much of Creator/StudioGhibli's work is like SteamPunk... without the punk. In particular, Creator/HayaoMiyazaki is incredibly fond of ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld.
** Also, for instance, [[http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-08/laputa-robot-ghibli-museum.jpg the robot from]] ''CastleInTheSky''.
** For other instances: The film based on ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'', ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' (which tends to be more like SchizoTech) and some bits of ''{{Ponyo}}'' and ''PrincessMononoke''.
* ''LastExile'' is a mixture of this and DieselPunk, with the Guild leaning more to CrystalSpiresAndTogas.
* Several of the cities in ''KinosJourney''.
* The version of Professor Moriarty from ''MeitanteiHolmes'' (US name ''Sherlock Hound'') uses a variety of steam-powered contraptions. Some of them are fairly reasonable (a particularly large automobile, a steam-powered press for minting counterfeit coins), but others fall squarely into this (an airplane modeled on a Pterosaur or an amphibious paddle-boat with robotic arms).
* ''HollowFields''
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', like ''LastExile'' above, combines SteamPunk and DieselPunk and adds a healthy dose of {{Magitek}}.
* ''TransformersCybertron'' gives us [[CoolOldGuy Vector Prime]], a clockpunk example.
* Although the tech is not the main focus of the series, ''Manga/DGrayMan'' happens to have a relatively good Science Division where everyone there operates by multiple flat screen television and massive steel plants. In the Victorian Era!
** And the chief of the Science Division creates enormous robots on a seemingly daily basis.
* ''Anime/SamuraiSeven'' is steampunk with giant, flying mechs. Since all the main characters use swords, it balances out.
* ''ErgoProxy'' A majority of the series is set around a wind machine called the 400 Rabbits.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The ''{{Transformers}}'' comic miniseries ''Hearts of Steel'' was set in the 1800's with the giant robots turning into Steam Punk equivalents of their regular forms. It also had Mark Twain as a badass action hero who saves the town from a coal powered Ravage.
* ''AtomicRobo'' has a steampunk brainwashed cyborg supersoldier, and ''more'' bizarrely a moving pyramid with steam powered robot mummies that is operated by a ''steam-based mechanical computer''.
* The Chris Bachalo drawn series ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Steampunk]]'' featuring a cyborg ActionGirl version of Queen Victoria.
* ''Comicbook/TheAmazingScrewOnHead'' and its AnimatedAdaptation.
* The ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' series ''Defoe'' and ''The Red Seas'' contain elements of this style, typically leaning towards the clockpunk variant, given the Restoration and Age of Piracy settings, respectively. Defoe actually include primitive automatons explicitly referred to as "Clock Punks", presumably in reference to the term.
** The ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'' storyline "The Gothic Empire" featured a far-future empire which modeled its technology with a heavy steampunk aesthetic. We are introduced to a rebel faction known as the "Young Goths," who, inspired by mid-20th century television broadcasts, wish to remodel their culture along dieselpunk lines.
* There is a 1989 AlternateUniverse comic of {{Batman}}, titled ''Gotham by Gaslight'', in which the world's greatest detective has to do battle with Jack the Ripper. While it's mostly a straight period piece, the sequel is ''very'' steampunky, with [[ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld dirigibles]], [[RobotBuddy automatons]], and {{Death Ray}}s.
** Another DCComics {{Elseworld}}, ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]: Age of Wonders'' imagines what might have happened if NikolaTesla had worked with all DC's {{Omnidisciplinary Scientist}}s: [[TheFlash Barry Allen]], [[Comicbook/{{Starman}} Ted Knight]], [[TheAtom Ray Palmer]] ... and LexLuthor.
* The first two volumes of Creator/AlanMoore and Kevin O'Neil's ''ComicBook/LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. (Later volumes are set in the 20th century).
* The origin of Alan Moore's science hero ''Tom Strong'' involves a steam-powered pneumatic automaton and a gravity chamber at the birth of the 20th Century.
* Creator/BryanTalbot wrote and drew ''[[ComicBook/LutherArkwright TheAdventuresOfLutherArkwright]]'' in 1978, proving that Steam Punk is OlderThanTheyThink. Also the sequel ''Heart of Empire'', and a separate graphic novel called ''ComicBook/{{Grandville}}'' featuring a Steam Punk world inhabited by [[WorldOfFunnyAnimals anthropomorphic animals]].
* The title character of Creator/NeilGaiman's ''MrHeroTheNewmaticMan'' is a steam-powered automaton from the Victorian era.
* The second part of ''ElEternauta'', a long time classic Argentine comic, features [[TropesThatWillNeverHappen Humongous Steam-Propelled Tanks]] made of timber. Quite cool and original, considering it was released in 1976.
* ''{{Marvel 1602}}'' features Lord Iron, a steampunk version of IronMan in an otherwise ClockPunk world. Because Tony is ''just that good''.
* ''ComicBook/LadyMechanika''
* The ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' miniseries ''Gates of Gotham'' features the Architect, a MadBomber in steampunk PoweredArmor. Red Robin even calls it "steam-punk-ish."
* Arcana Studios' ''Steampunk Originals'' anthology, and other titles in the Steampunk Originals imprint including ''The Steam Engines of [[Literature/LandOfOz Oz]]'' and ''[[ManVersusMachine John Henry]]: The Steam Age''. The Steampunk Originals mission statement says "Goggles, gadgets, and gears: considering Steampunk on those terms is no less absurd then imagining our reality populated solely by electricians, hackers, and astronauts".
* In February 2014, DC Comics released 20 books with [[http://www.nerdist.com/2014/01/dc-comics-goes-steampunk-this-february-with-20-killer-covers/ steampunk alternate covers]]. Some of them are more steampunk than others. (The Green Lanterns in ''ruffs'' seem to be about 300 years out...)
* ''Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure'' is a Creator/DynamiteComics {{Elseworld}} with Steampunk versions of assorted Dynamite properties: Comicbook/RedSonja, Franchise/TheGreenHornet, [[ComicBook/TheLastPhantom The Phantom]], Comicbook/{{Vampirella}}, [[Creator/JackKirby Captain Victory, Silver Star]], Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan, Franchise/{{Zorro}} and [[ComicBook/FlashGordonZeitgeist Flash Gordon]].
* ''ComicBook/TheFiveFistsOfScience'' depicts Creator/MarkTwain and UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla as [[TheyFightCrime action heroes]]... and gives ThomasEdison an HistoricalVillainUpgrade.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film (Animation)]]
* ''TreasurePlanet'' features a really interesting fusion of SteamPunk and CyberPunk, merging SteamPunk-style culture, aesthetics, and [[SpaceIsAnOcean physics]] with CyberPunk-level technology.
* ''AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' has some aspects of Steampunk in the beginning, considering that in 1914 the characters travel to Atlantis in a submarine so technologically advanced at least in design and features that it hasn't been made 95 years on. Oh, and, the giant drill truck. Then again, this is the film that contains flying fish-like craft powered by crystals full of AppliedPhlebotinum, so...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film (Live Action)]]
* The 1954 film adaptation of ''Film/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'' is widely considered a TropeCodifier thanks to Harper Goff's stunning design for the ''Nautilus''.
* The 1960 and 2002 adaptations of ''TheTimeMachine''. ''Especially'' the 2002 version--its "star" has a Difference Engine under the readout dials.
* The movie version of ''Film/WildWildWest'' was definite SteamPunk, including a steam powered giant mechanical spider.
* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', especially [[Creator/JulesVerne Captain Nemo's]] inventions.
* In the ''Film/{{Casper}}'' feature film, the mansion's secret laboratory.
* Doc Brown's time-locomotive at the end of the ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' trilogy: "It runs on steam!". Another example earlier in the movie was his steam-powered refrigerator (which was big enough to take up a garage by itself).
* The film ''MutantChronicles'' is firmly entrenched in the Steampunk genre, though it forgoes zeppelins in favour of flying trains. It actually looks more plausible than it sounds.
* ''Film/VanHelsing''.
* The 2009 film version of ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' can be fairly safely placed in the (soft) SteamPunk category, what with the few somewhat unrealistic electricity-, steam- and clockwork-based technologies that show up [[RuleOfCool for their sheer coolness]], and the quite accurately [[DarkerAndEdgier dark]] and [[SlidingScaleOfShinyVersusGritty gritty]] vision of VictorianLondon.
* The movie version of ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents''
* ''Film/YoungEinstein''.
* ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus''
* [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052374 ''Vynález zkázy'' a.k.a. ''A Deadly Invention'' a.k.a. ''The Fabulous World of Jules Verne'']], 1958 Czech masterpiece by Karel Zeman. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6flBc_6Ufrc Enjoy this montage.]]
* In one of the adventure sequences of ''Film/SuckerPunch'' the girls fight in the trenches of WorldWarI against Germans [[OurZombiesAreDifferent reanimated from the dead]] by a combination of steam tech and clockwork.
* Master's post-Blaster attire in ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'' could be considered steampunk.
** Dr. Dealgood's attire, as well.
** And The Collector's glasses.
* In Terry Gilliams' ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm'' the brothers wear steampunk-esque uniforms and use steampunky scientific instruments [[spoiler: which really don't do anything, as they are con men.]]
* ''Film/TheCityOfLostChildren''.
* The 1970s Czechoslovak detective comedy ''Film/AdeleHasntHadHerDinnerYet'' features a lot of steampunky gadgets and esthetics both on the side of the protagonists and the bad guys, given that it's an AffectionateParody of turn-of-the-century pulp novels and penny dreadfuls.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Had an episode set in a steampunk-themed club, and Castle went all-out getting into the part. The episode in question is held up as one of the few mainstream shows who [[ShownTheirWork got Steampunk right,]] and was the result of an open challenge after the... [[TheyJustDidntCare less than stellar]] use of it in ''[=NCIS:LA=]'' mentioned below.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Christmas special episode "The Next Doctor" (set in 1851) had elements of this, including a [[HumongousMecha hundred-foot high]] steampunk Cyber-King.
** "The Girl In The Fireplace" had clockwork robots in GorgeousPeriodDress. Beautiful and NightmareFuel in one package.
** The Eighth Doctor's ''[[SceneryPorn ridiculously sexy]]'' new SteamPunk TARDIS [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/gallery/tvmovie/images/1024/dw50.html interior]] from the 1996 TV movie.
** Also the design of Eleven's TARDIS has a few steam punk nods.
** The 2010 Christmas Special, "A Christmas Carol," had strong steampunk elements as well.
** "The Power of the Daleks" had a definite steampunk feel. Or would have done, if the 1967 audience had known about steampunk.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': While not ''strictly'' steampunk, the series does contain a lot of steampunk themes (mixing 19th century aesthetics with sci-fi elements and storylines) as well as steampunk character types such as the Wrench Wench, and went a long way toward popularizing the genre.
* ''{{Fringe}}'': The episode "Brown Betty" has Steampunk and SchizoTech designs throughout the episode. Although the episode was more DieselPunk as a whole.
* ''LanternCity'': [[Film/{{Tron}} Bruce Boxleitner]] is working on a new series, which will take place in an entirely steampunk parallel world.
* ''Series/{{Legend}}'': Richard Dean Anderson's series had a genius inventor character who created all manner of steampunk gear, but the world at large didn't have it.
* ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'': In one episode, Abby goes to a "steampunk bar." But the steampunks are really just {{goth}}s wearing brown, they all act rude [[TheQuincyPunk like punks are expected to act]] and their vocabulary is laced with words borrowed from ''Literature/HarryPotter''.
* ''Series/{{Revolution}}'': The Georgia Federation has reverted to this full-stop, converting buses and agricultural machinery to steam power in response to the loss of electricity. Miles notes that their standard of living is substantially higher than that of the Monroe Republic at least partly as a result ("[[Recap/RevolutionS1E14TheNightTheLightsWentOutInGeorgia The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia]]").
* ''Series/TheSecretAdventuresOfJulesVerne'': This show is a Steam Punk series on the Sci-Fi Channel set in the [[VictorianLondon Victorian era]].
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'':
** In one episode, Col. Sheppard and Dr. [=McKay=] had been playing an {{RTS}} game they had found on the station, where they each built up and controlled neighboring countries. At least, they ''thought'' it was a game, until they found a planet with countries built up exactly like they had specified. Dr. [=McKay=]'s country was fully steampunk, with leather and brass, goggles, steam power and dirigibles.
** While this is probably the only episode to invoke the trope intentionally, many other planets of the week in both Atlantis and ''Series/StargateSG1'' had cultures that were clearly at an 1890s level, from tech to fashion, though it bore little, if any, relevance to the plot. Many establishing shots of smoke-filled cities with skies full of airships, science labs full of brass tubing and smoked glass. The show's artists/costumers, at least, were clearly fans of the genre.
* ''Series/TinMan'': SciFi Channel's 3-part 6-hour mini-series, a re-interpretation of ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', has a distinctly steampunk feel to at least the architecture and machinery, with just a tiny bit of cyberpunk thrown in for higher tech purposes. Appropriate to the setting. See "Literature." The Oz books were ''loaded'' with steam-tech.
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'': Captain Jack, captured by Torchwood agents in the 19th century, is interrogated by means of a Patent ElectricTorture Device, with the inventors' faces on the lid.
* ''Series/{{Voyagers}}'': Had a cool steampunk vibe to it.
* ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'': Plays with this, especially in terms of aesthetics, although it's a bit closer to DieselPunk in terms of the artifacts being handled (like the Farnsworth). The field agents, however, use fairly standard modern tech aside from the aforementioned Farnsworths[[note]]untraceable wireless video phones with brass casing, black-and-white only though[[/note]] and [[StunGuns Tesla guns]]. Although when Helena is a field agent, she prefers her own SteamPunk equipment.
* ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' : One of the earliest examples of steampunk on television. Practically every other episode featured a mad scientist outfitted with Verne-style tech.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The band AbneyPark's whole image is based on steampunk, more now than it used to be. Worth noting that part of their image involves their own CoolAirship. They are drunk [[SkyPirate airship pirates]], after all.
* Thomas Dolby exemplifies this trope and has since the early 80's.
* VernianProcess has some close ties to the movement as well.
* DoctorSteel plays rather heavily into the Mad Scientist end of the genre, and was perhaps the first to bring HipHop into steampunk music.
* UnextraordinaryGentlemen crossed over from {{Goth}}, and still skirt the line rather heavily, playing to steampunk's dark side.
* The ClockworkQuartet ([[http://www.clockworkquartet.com Also found here]]) are entirely based around steampunk, have a steampunk synthesizer, dress in steampunk clothing, and one member has a business on the side selling little clockwork devices.
* The band The Cog Is Dead thrives on being mercilessly steampunk.
* The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have a very intentionally steampunk aesthetic. Their influences (as listed on [[http://www.myspace.com/blamedfornothing their myspace]]) are "[[StuffBlowingUp exploding boilers]], [[BedlamHouse Bethlehem Royal Hospital and her hilarious inmates]], [[LaResistance working class revolutionaries]], [and] [[BombThrowingAnarchists mad bombers with ink-stained cuffs]]." They even released a ''wax cylinder'' edition of some of their songs. The first wax cylinder recording made since ''1922''.
* Music/{{Voltaire}} has crossed over from {{Goth}} to Steampunk (but is still pretty Goth).
* PanicAtTheDisco's new stuff seems to be becoming more influenced by Steam Punk, in regards to their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOgpdp3lP8M music videos.]]
* ProfessorElemental and Music/MrBTheGentlemanRhymer represent a new genre of steampunk music called ChapHop.
* Music/SteamPoweredGiraffe perform as steam-driven robots.
* {{Rush}}'s latest tour is heavily steampunk-influenced.
* The video for "Turn Me On" by DavidGuetta featuring NickiMinaj. Minaj as a clockwork robot in a corset and Guetta as her brass-goggles-wearing creator.
* Ladies and gentlemen, AudioPlay/TheDollsOfNewAlbion A Steampunk Opera. It can be listened to [[http://mochalab.bandcamp.com/album/the-dolls-of-new-albion-a-steampunk-opera here]].
* And there's this song, complaining about misuse of the term: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFCuE5rHbPA
** "Just glue some gears on it, and call it steampunk."
* ''The Incredible Machine'' by Music/{{Sugarland}}. The title track was steampunk-inspired, as was the corresponding tour.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The ''IronKingdoms'' RPG published by Privateer Press is ''built'' on Steampunk. Steampunk and awesome.
* Also by Privateer Press, tabletop wargame ''[[TabletopGame/IronKingdoms Warmachine]]'' is also heavily based on steampunk tropes; with substantial magic and supernatural elements added in.
** No surprise when it's also set in the Iron Kingdoms. Why make a whole new steampunk setting when you've already got a great one in-hand?
* The RolePlayingGame ''{{Space 1889}}'' (''[[http://www.heliograph.com/space1889/ Space: 1889]]''), as well as the [[http://www.space1889.com/ even obscurer licensed audio dramas]] based on it.
* The RolePlayingGame game ''MutantChronicles'' (along with its tie-ins, collectible card game ''DoomTrooper'', battle game ''WarZone'' and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutant_Chronicles_(film) the 2008 feature film]]), although it takes place somewhere in the [=XXVIIIth=] century, is actually Steampunk, as the Mutants and Dark Symmetry (a kind of evil power field) rendered all electronic devices unreliable and therefore practically unusable, so humanity was forced to rely on steam-powered ones. This was averted in later editions of WarZone, where the universe turned more to DieselPunk and Cybertronic remained straight {{Cyberpunk}}.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'''s Dwarves and Chaos Dwarves have loads of Steampunk contraptions, including a chopper and for one character, body armour which helps him move. The Empire also has a steam-powered ''[[TankGoodness tank]]''.
* The Alchemical ''{{Exalted}}'' are heroes of a clockwork world who are implanted with steam (and other weird materials) powered devices that make them more effective as hero figures.
* The D20 roleplaying game ''{{Etherscope}}'' is set in a Victorian, steampunk world complete with the usual paraphernalia. The main difference being the existence of the titular 'etherscope' which allows for the creation of computer-like mechanisms, amongst other things...
* While ''DungeonsAndDragons'' is generally a HighFantasy RPG, Gnomes tend to border on, or full-out jump into, Steampunk. The ''{{Spelljammer}}'' setting in particular uses this, where Gnomes even have "rocket ships."
** In the {{Mystara}} setting, they've got ''biplanes''.
** 3.5 even features several Prestige Classes made for Gnomes which feature them as Steampunk or Clockpunk mad scientists.
** ''{{Eberron}}'' invokes this trope, along with {{Magitek}}, but is more magic-based technology than Steampunk. Actual technology is rare and often not worth it, due to magic being so readily available and easy to learn.
** Some of the more advanced realms in ''{{Ravenloft}}'' feature steampunk elements.
** None does more in this regard than ''TabletopGame/{{DragonMech}}'', which incorporates AfterTheEnd and AlienInvasion elements with its steam-driven HumongousMecha and [[HollywoodCyborg Steamborgs]]
* ''{{GURPS}}'' 3rd Edition had a ''Steampunk'' sourcebook, which included various Steampunk devices, details of Victoriana, and contained ''three'' Steampunk settings: Etheria (PlanetaryRomance); Iron ("conventional" dystopian steampunk) and Qabala (a weird variant, essentially "Golempunk"). This was followed by ''Steam-Tech'', with further gadgets including an automaton detective ([[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial which was not intended to resemble Mr Holmes of Baker Street in any way]]). In GURPS [[TechnologyLevels Tech Level]] terms, Steampunk is considered [=TL5+ 1=] (that is, as far advanced as [=TL6=], but ''different'').
* The ''MageKnight'' "Black Powder Rebels" faction was highly steampunk, including steam golems and a steam tank.
* A Polish RPG now released in English - ''TabletopGame/WolsungSteamPulpFantasy''. It's more Steam than Punk and the authors themselves call it Victorian Fantasy. The setting is something similiar to our world on the brink of the [=XXth=] century, but filtered through pulp fiction from the time, with a little bit of classic fantasy and lots of pop culture inspirations.
* ''AirshipPirates'' is an RPG based on the songs of AbneyPark (see Music), with all the steampunkery that implies - indeed, the world it describes is arguably even more steampunk than the songs, since the band describe themselves as "the only Airship Pirates" which the game understandably... [[AdaptationExpansion changes]].
* ''UnhallowedMetropolis'' is set in the 22nd century, after a ZombieApocalypse wiped out human civilization around 1900. Humanity has finally regained control of a few areas, and is going back to the last golden age of civilization, resulting in a "Neo-Victorian" culture with many elements of this.
* The French ''Ecryme'' RPG is set in an alien world with strong Victorian-era aesthetics and classical steampunk technology.
* ''CastleFalkenstein'' uses an essentially steampunk setting with some supernatural elements (including Engine Magick) added for a good measure.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Victoriana| RPG}}'', an AlternateHistory RPG set near the mid-XIX century, has a definite steampunk element to it.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' is essentially steampunk of the WeirdWest variety. It handwaves typical technological limitation of steampunk technology by introduction of 'ghostrock', a kind of coal imbued with spiritual force that can give off tremendous amounts of energy and has other properties very useful to any MadScientist. Also, Manitous.
* In ''GeniusTheTransgression'' Steampunk is the latest fashion fad among mad scientists. Humorously the actual Victorian mad scientists didn't create much in the Steampunk style but many of them did use Baroque styles based on idealised 17th century fashions (which was also not actually used by 17th century mad scientists).
* From Ravnica, in TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering, the Izzet are a mix of this and {{Magitek}}.
* In ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' the Sons of Ether, the Magick tradition who tend the sphere of matter, have a largely steampunk aesthetic mixed with RaygunGothic.
* ''TabletopGame/DystopianWars'' which features steam powered tanks, massive airships, huge landships, and HumongousMecha.
* ''Airship Pirates'' is based on Abney Park's music, and takes place in the steam-powered post-apocalyptic future of 2150. You see, the band stole a time-traveling airship and tried to "fix" the timeline

* ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}: TheMusical'' has the Clock of the Time Dragon, which is part Steampunk and part ClockPunk; the Japanese version cranked it up to ten on the Steampunk scale.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* Following the [[TheEighties 198-something]] revamp of Disneyland California, Tomorrowland was whole-heartedly turned into this, described as something "straight out of Creator/JulesVerne's works." Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland followed suit in the early '90s.
** Also, the Tomorrowland in Disneyland Paris still is something "straight out of Creator/JulesVerne's works."
** Tokyo Disneysea has a VERY steampunk section known as the Mysterious Island, also based on the works of Jules Verne.
* Alton Towers, a popular English theme park, has lots of steampunk influences, mainly focusing on the theme of Victorian travel and discovery. One in-park hotel is Steampunk themed, complete with a giant airship and pith-hated gent in the lobby, and one of the park monorails is painted to appear as a locomotive carriage, full of exotic contraptions and the like.
* Fans of Universal Orlando's HalloweenHorrorNights nerdgasmed when they discovered that one of the scarezones in 2010 was Saws n' Steam; fissures opening in the ground cause the oceans to dry up, forcing the homicidal citizens of New Yorkshire to take up steam-powered chainsaws and carve up passerby to extract the water from their bodies. The zone notably features a MASSIVE amount of fog in a small alley, as well as chainsaw-wielding maniacs with goggles and leather on each end and a stage with a steampunk police officer monologuing about how they plan on rebuilding their city; one section of the stage has a tank full of body parts that occasionally fires streams of water at the crowd.
** Said scarezone was so popular that the next year, a haunted house tie in was made. Saws n' Steam: Into The Machine actually brings the audience into one of the processing plants, though most of the steampunk design was lost in favor of a more traditional Industrial Revolution aesthetic (except for the facade and costumes).
* Parc d'Asterix in France has L'Oxygenarium. Its backstory is that an inventor named Ferdinand de Teffélé has created in 1900 a machine to purify air.

[[folder:Toys]]
* ''MonsterHigh'' has Robecca Steam, a robot daughter of a mad scientist. Her fashion style is somewhat outdated, but because it evokes SteamPunk aesthetics, it is quite chic.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Engine Machines from ''VisualNovel/ShikkokuNoSharnoth'' are some weird form of technology that has granted VictorianEngland technology on par or superior to our own in many ways, especially military.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* During the final arc of Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy, the titular duo are back in the time of Grover Cleveland and lacking their usual gadgets to work with for their upcoming plan. When Jenn points out anything they make with the current supplies would technically fall under this, they perk up and get right to it.
* ''Webcomic/{{Annyseed}}'': Welcome to the delightful home of professor Tripadiculous! Page 49 - 64. Also, Count Tarrorviene's blood machine in other pages.
* ''Webcomic/BlackRose'', mixed with DarkFantasy with the main conflict being an corrupt, industrialized SteamPunk society versus a more rural territory where magic remains a dominant power.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''—though its creators [[InsistentTerminology would rather you call it]] "Gaslamp Fantasy", as it has as much "luminiferous aether" and "elan vital" as it does steam, and the closest thing it has to "punks" are those gooftastic Jaegermonsters. What it ''does'' have is [[ForScience Mad Science]]. Which rules the world. '''''Badly.''''' From there, the rule is ''anything goes'', as long as some geeky MadScientist might possibly consider it [[RuleOfCool Cool]], [[RuleOfFunny Funny]], or [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome]] enough. Seen to date are [[ClockworkCreature elaborate clockwork robots]], HumongousMecha, ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld, [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein Monsters]], TimeTravel, and hand held {{Death Ray}}s.
** Also a guy who appears to be unhindered by the fact that his head has been replaced by some bizarre contraption that appears to lack all sensory apparatus.
* ''SfeerTheory'' takes place in a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Victorian-ish]] era culture where scientists study the workings of [[TitleDrop sfeer]] [[MagicAIsMagicA theory]] in imperially funded universities. As of yet we haven't seen a lot of steam power itself, but other tropes are present, most notable AwesomeAnachronisticApparel. And unlike other SteamPunk stories, this series will delve into at least some ValuesDissonance in the plot.
* ''TheContinentals'': A steampunk murder, mystery, scifi adventure webcomic set in post Jack the Ripper England where Continental Operative Jeffrey Tiffen Smythe and his gender bending partner the adventress Lady Fiona Fiziwigg investigating a series of brutal "mangling" murders uncovers a tangled web of intrigue, adventure--And murder! Read it [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Continentals here.]]
* ''[[http://brokenspacecomic.com Broken Space]]'' features cars, starships, and buildings powered by equal parts Steampunk boilers, Clock Punk gears, and {{Magitek}} glyphs.
* The titular ''{{Freakangels}}'' rely a lot on steam and ClockPunk devices in their post-apocalyptic London. Why coal is easier to locate than gasoline hasn't been explained yet.
** Britain isn't known for its oil reserves but has plenty of peat and coal.
* ''TheThrillingAdventuresOfLovelaceAndBabbage'' is set in an alternate universe where RealLife programming pioneers Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage successfully created the computer in VictorianBritain. TheyFightCrime.
* In [[http://www.jaydenancrusader.com Jayden and Crusader]] the character Sir Reginald Derby is a mad scientist of Steam Engines and claims to have a Steam powered time machine.
** Sir Reginald recently [[http://www.jaydenandcrusader.com/2010/05/28/page-155/ appeared]] piloting an apparently steam powered walking tank.
* ''Webcomic/TheBecoming'' takes place in a world that relies on steampunk technology and it’s citizens generally dress in a Victorian fashion.
* The [[{{Elseworld}} alternate versions]] / [[IdenticalGrandson identical ancestors]]/whatever of the ''{{Narbonic}}'' characters in ''The Astonishing Adventures of Helen Narbon & Co.'' are in a steampunk setting.
* Apparently, in the world of ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'', [[http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/0193.html everything is powered by steam]]. Ardam wonders if electricity wouldn't be better.
* ''[[http://notenoughbbq.com Steampunk Soiree]]'', as the name suggests, contains obvious references to steampunk in character costuming, the types of technology used, and the overarching Victorian setting.
* WordOfGod has said that the sqids, Sam Starfall's race in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', are like this, using zeppelins and exoskeletons similar to the tripods of ''Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' Martians.
* ''{{Clockworks}}''
* Creator/KateBeaton [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=266 pokes fun]] at the sillier aspects of steampunk aesthetic.
* In ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob,'' Molly made a [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20110301.html steam-powered snowman.]] [[CaptainObvious He melted :(]]
* The dreamworld in ''HoneyAndTheWhirlwind''
* One of the main characters of ''{{Shadowbinders}}'' alternates between our world and a Steampunk world.
** Where she ends up on a CoolShip, that can fly thanks to a magic ring that refuses to leave her finger

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* 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 SteamPunk-y in season two, where a colossal drilling machine was introduced. Then in the third there were ''jet skis'', and a previously introduced balloon became ''zeppelins''. 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.
** Almost all of the more advanced steampunk devices only work through the natural abilities of benders. The tanks, engines, and weapons are powered either by firebenders (who serve as flamethrowers for tanks that seem to use steam engines) or earthbenders (who control crawler-like machines reminiscent of caterpillars). Submarines are propelled by teams of waterbenders, and the hot air needed for zeppelins and war balloons is provided by more firebenders.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' takes place in Republic City, described as a "steampunk metropolis" on the official website. Technology seen so far includes more zeppelins, cameras, cars, and speakers. However, aside from the zeppelins, most of the technology is actually very realistic when compared to tech in our 1920's, the time period that influenced the show. Whether or not the setting is as steampunk as Nickelodeon claims remains to be seen.
** Later in the series we get steam(?) powered battle mechs, at least somewhat justifying the label.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Showdown", Ra's al Ghul describes his attempt to destroy the transcontinental railroad and bomb Washington back in the 1880s with an advanced war dirigible, complete with cannons, turrets and gatling guns. Unfortunately, his son ruins it by getting Jonah Hex involved.
* The villain Mechanicles' shtick in ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries''. Improbable-to-impossible mechanical creations of all shapes and sizes. However, they were usually ClockPunk rather than steam-based.
** Brownie points for earning a mention on the ClockKing page. His plans were often just as elaborate as his machines, and they relied almost entirely on things running according to schedule.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMysteriousGeographicExplorationsOfJasperMorello'' has steam and mechanical zeppelins, and is animated as though it were shadow puppets and a light box.
* ''{{Flapjack}}'' has some of this, in the form of two inventor brothers.
* Rejected {{Nickelodeon}} pilot show ''[[http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=347262731520#comments The Modifyers]]'' featured a ton of cool steampunk-style airships.
* Disney's ''GummiBears'' is filled with Steam Punk style mechanical oddities such as airships, submarines, massive wind and water generators and the venerable quick car. All of these machines are operated without electricity.
* Yet another rejected Nickelodeon pilot, ''ConstantPayne'', was steampunk mixed with some futuristic elements.
* The GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' opens with a short of John Wilkes Booth trying to kill Lincoln- and he fails, thanks to a space-time-hopping {{Batman}}. Seconds later, Booth whips out brass armor with steam-powered [[MoreDakka gattling gun arms.]] This is an [[AlternateHistory alternate universe]] with a [[WhatIf different timeline]], as Batman subtly mentions on his way back home at the end of the short- after pounding Booth into submission, with a little help from Honest Abe himself.
* While there is a great deal of SchizoTech running amok, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has a few elements of this.
* In the ''GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Steam Lantern", this is the [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of the planet Hal Jordan finds himself on when sent to another universe by the Anti-Monitor.
* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Steampunx" revolved around this genre. With special appearance by Music/ProfessorElemental.

* The crews of the [[http://hmschronabelle.deviantart.com/ HMS Chronabelle]], HMS Amaranth and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/stagethane/ MHS Hysteria]] (led by Captains Mouse, [[http://vladislausdantes.deviantart.com/ Vincent M. Dantes]] and Edward Von Arkham, respectively) are but three of the crews of dirigible aviators sailing the skies between their hometowns and conventions.
** Also Captain Z and the crew of the ''[[https://www.facebook.com/HatefishCrew Hatefish]]'' (a ''Nautilus''-like submarine).
* The trope of the [[SkyPirate Airship Pirate]] has become so overwhelmingly prevalent and predictable that a group of fans rebelled against it by forming the [[http://www.iapssteampunk.com/ Imperial Anti-Piracy Squadron]] or IAPS, a delightfully intimidating group who entertain and educate about developing costumes and personae whenever they're not showing off flashy uniforms and shouting in pseudo-Austrian accents.
* Thomas Willeford's Brute Force Studios has made several successful forays into the realm of cosplay:
** Perhaps the most famous is his robotic arm, worn by G. D. Falksen in an iconic photo and by Creator/NathanFillion in an episode of ''Series/{{Castle}}''.
** Most recently, Willeford created a steampunk ''Franchise/IronMan'' suit, calling it "Iron Man 1889". It won top honors in the Marvel Cosplay contest at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con.
