Did you know that the cyberpunk-themed cult classic Blade Runner was pretty much unsuccessful during its first theatrical release? The term "cyberpunk" gained popularity thanks to Blade Runner and William Gibson's sci-fi novel named Neuromancer. In spite of this, the term actually originated from Bruce Bethke, who in the process made two lists of words that best describe 1) technology and 2) troublemakers. Two words were then chosen and combined into a single word, thus giving birth to the word "cyberpunk". This word was then adapted into modern writing, given more attention due to the fact that it was used in a Washington Post article.
More often than not, cyberpunk books, novels, and movies are primarily focused on the dark, gritty, and grim features of the dystopian society it's set in, giving highlights to the amount of power that corporations hold, as well as the disparity between the rich and poor. The most common cyberpunk aesthetics that viewers might see in this subgenre of science fiction are the overabundance of neon lights, cybernetic enhancements, futuristic guns, and the protagonist being labeled as a computer hacker, rebel, antihero, or all of the above. The cyberpunk subgenre is also the originator of similar "Punk" genres like steampunk and dieselpunk, to name a few.
