Jim and Cain

Cyberpunk ASMR contains examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: You might not have known that Christopher was British-Indian or many of the characters' last names if you didn't read that one untagged tumblr post from 2015.
  • Artificial Human: The original Octavia android.
  • Artificial Limbs Are Stronger: Cain's right arm.
  • BFG: Omar's sniper rifle, as pointed out by John Tracer in the Season Two Finale.
  • Big Bad Friend: Jim during the Season Two Finale.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: The United Empire, all the time.
  • Brain–Computer Interface: The E-brain.
  • The Big Guy: John Tracer is definitely the powerhouse of the Season Two teamup between himself, MC, and Christopher.
  • Blood Knight: Cain really enjoys violence.
  • Catchphrase: "We wade through this darkness together" is the catchphrase of Season One, used notably in Season Two before Jim betrays MC atop the Kojima|Acetron tower.

  • City Noir: Neo-Detroit.
  • Crapsack World: President Neumann wants to become Emperor of the United Empire, which is already a Police State, and if a place isn't run by the police, it’s run by gangs or megacorps. On top of that, the Naturalists are invading every major city in the U.E, and, oh yeah, there’s a virus that just got downloaded into everyone with a Kojima|Acetron E-brain. Surely that'll turn out fine.
  • Cyberpunk Is Techno: EpicASMR's OST for the series.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Subverted with the Graveyard Echoes.
  • Cyborg: Most of the main characters, and a lot of the side characters too. It happens when there's two Cyber Doctors in the picture.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Jim revealed that he was bullied as a kid, John was a POW for two years during WWIII, Cain got his arm blown off in that same war, as well as having his lungs permanently damaged, both of MC's parents died when they were young — if a character doesn't have one of these, they're outside the norm.

  • Dark Lord on Life Support: Thomas, one of the Graveyard Echoes.
  • Deus Angst Machina: Everything goes badly for MC, from the day they mysteriously disappear from their job at the Neo-Detroit Police Department. They get captured by Propriev as they try to assassinate him, their apartment is blown up, they're tied up and tortured again, and, just when they think they might have a break in Prospero, the naturalists invade, and they're dragged into the cisterns below the city where they're betrayed by Jim, are almost killed by Cain with no emotion, and see John Tracer die in front of them. They rarely get a break.
  • Divided States of America: The United Empire.
  • Do Androids Dream?: Octavia, especially as she begs MC not to kill her.
  • Dystopia: The entire series.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: The MC atop the Kojima|Acetron tower — Jim, Cain and John are all dead, and Christopher is unaccounted for. However, it turns out that Christopher is okay as he can be, and Cain is injured but alive.
  • Evil Luddite: The Naturalists.
  • Family-Unfriendly Violence: The bread and butter of Cyberpunk ASMR.
  • Gaia's Lament: Everywhere showcased in the series so far.
  • Layered Metropolis: Neo-Detroit was built on the remnants of the old city.
  • Megacity: Prospero.
  • Megacorp: Kojima|Acetron.
  • Police State: The United Empire.
  • The Singularity: The invention of the E-brain.
  • Sinister Surveillance: The United Empire, though the rules seem to be notably more relaxed in Neo-Detroit.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Christopher, John, and the MC during Season Two, and Christopher, Omar, and the MC during Season Three.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Cain, in regards to Octavia.
  • Wretched Hive: Neo-Detroit, complete with scum and villainy.
