Subgenre A subgenre is a subordinate within a genre.<ref>http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/subgenre</ref><ref>http://www.thefreedictionary.com/subgenre</ref> Two stories being the same genre can still sometimes differ in subgenre.

For example, if a fantasy story has darker and more frightening elements of fantasy, it would belong in the subgenre of dark fantasy; whereas another fantasy story that features magic swords and wizards would belong to the subgenre of sword and sorcery.
