* 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.

** This had given the aye-aye a reputation as being bad luck. It is said that if an aye-aye were to point its middle finger at you, a horrible death will follow (granted there ''is'' an element of truth to this; the aye-aye's middle finger certainly ends up causing its ''prey'' a horrible death). Sadly, this has also led to its species being endangered, as people have been known to kill aye-ayes due to this superstition.

* Creator/{{Valve|Software}} kinda love this trope, just look at the Witch from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' or headcrab zombies from ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}''. The absolute king is ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'''s [[FinalBoss the Nihilanth]], whose fingers are at least three meters long and about as long as his torso.
