Virtual Reality or VR may refer to the following tropes:
- Cyberspace, where the internet is represented as its own virtual environment, accessible via VR goggles or jacking in through a direct BrainComputer Interface.
- Inside a Computer System, in which the characters exist inside a computer simulation which may not provide any direct contact with the outside world, including cases of Brain Uploading or characters who are unaware they are living in a digital Lotus-Eater Machine.
- Augmented Reality, computer-generated elements being overlaid onto the real world, ranging from a simple Heads-Up Display to detailed objects, characters, and even advertising.
These tropes often overlap. See Virtual Reality Index for a listing of VR equipment and troped media in real life.
