Stonepunk is a sub-genre of the PunkPunk science fiction genre. Stonepunk focuses on pre-technological developments in pre-historic times, its juxtapositions of the modern world with the primitive, and the effects of an early form of 'advanced' technology on society, like ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', based on primitive materials such as rock, fire, clay, rope, wood and water. Unlike most classic CyberPunk or SteamPunk influenced fiction like ClockPunk, the Stone Age supplies the inspiration behind a modified form of technology based on the materials provided by the natural elements and surrounding environment. BambooTechnology is common. Depending on the setting, there may be SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology as well.

The defining feature of Stone Punk is the representation of modern inventions and technology but made with primitive materials. The idea here is that road signs and furnishings would not have existed, but as a RuleOfFunny and in order to further highlight the primary societal differences they have been included. Having the familiar aspects can make the foreign aspects seem even more foreign to the audience, which is used as a method of storytelling as a sort of constant reminder that "this work is set in a completely different world".


* ''Manga/DrStone'' falls into this setting due to its premise of an OmnidisciplinaryScientist waking up in a world with Stone Age technology. The existing society already has the Stone; said scientist creates the Punk by helping to raise their living standards, bit by bit, until it's reached the 21st century life he's used to.
