Spy-fi is a subgenre of spy fiction that includes elements of science fiction.

Definition and characteristics[edit]

It often uses a secret agent (solo or in a team) or superspy whose mission is a showcase of science fiction elements such as technology and ideas used for extortion, plots for world domination or world destruction, futuristic weapons, gadgets and fast vehicles that can travel on land, fly, or sail on or under the sea. Spy-fi does not necessarily present espionage as it is practiced in reality. It is fiction that emphasizes glamour, adventure and derring-do. Note that not all spy-fi includes all elements mentioned.
