* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': Just look at Ibaraki-dōji's hand (he only has one hand, by the way). He's a good guy, though.

The one big drawback to using this this trope in live action media is that human actors are unlikely to be able to handle extra knuckles or delicate motions, which is why animatronics and CGI fare better. Actors with these finger extensions are usually limited in their range of hand motions, being unable to make a fist, wield guns or more generally grasp thin objects.

Added DiffLines:

* The alien in ''Film/{{ET}}'' has long fingers compared with the rest of him. Like most examples, ET is creepy-looking and ugly. Unlike most examples, he's benevolent, lovable, etc. Elliott sees through his creepy exterior to the lovable character inside.

Characters and monsters (or both) have a little extra creepy added to them when they have longer than average fingers. They don't even have to be foot long, the UncannyValley can make even just slightly longer fingers off putting. This is one reason FemmeFatalons which lengthen the apparent size of fingers can invoke this effect, as can actual claws.
