Retrofuturism is a movement in the creative arts showing the influence of depictions of the future produced in an earlier era. If futurism is sometimes called a "science" bent on anticipating what will come, retrofuturism is the remembering of that anticipation. Characterized by a blend of old-fashioned "retro styles" with futuristic technology, retrofuturism explores the themes of tension between past and future, and between the alienating and empowering effects of technology.

Retrofuturism can be separated into several genres by the era of technology they were based on. The primary ones are steampunk, dieselpunk, atompunk, Raygun Gothic, and cyberpunk.
