* The lurching of the ghost people in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' would qualify. They lurch about as described due to their flesh being fused to their heavily stiffened hazmat suits.

* Mr. Clipboard from ''Film/FoodFight!'' moves like this to such a ridiculous degree that WebOriginal/JonTron refused to comment on it during his review out of fear that he ''might have a disability''.

* In a rare heroic example, both [[DemBones Jack Skellington]] and [[ScaryStitches Sally Patches]] from ''Film/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' have very spidery, spooky motions. Jack in particular tends to crouch and crawl around a lot.

* In the ''Wrestling/LuchaUnderground'' promo where Catrina taunted Fenix about the imminent return of Mil Muertes, [[TerribleTrio the Disciples of Death]] also made their debut- three skull-masked figures perched above Fenix on top of the lockers, [[UncannyValley moving in this eerie, jerky manner]]. It produced the distinct impression that not only might these guys not be your average luchadors, they may not even be ''human!''

This is when a robot, ClockworkCreature, golem, [[TheUndead undead]], {{mind control}}led or other human-sized and -shaped entity moves as if it were a puppet on a string. In the process, it defies the laws of anatomy and gravity by [[AbnormalLimbRotationRange bending in unnatural ways]] and [[PowerFloats floating]]... all without strings. Alternately, it might move like a broken animatronic robot, as if its insides had less articulation than a 3-inch ''GiJoe'' figure. As the picture shows, it's usually used for {{horror}} stories because it is just [[UncannyValley (un)naturally creepy]]. To accentuate the eerie motion, camera tricks like [[JitterCam jitters]], SlowMotion and speeding up may be used. GhostlyGlide may also be used to suggest invisible strings suspending the figure in question.

* In the Hades chapter of ''SaintSeiya'', the specter Minos Gryphon can turn his enemies into PeoplePuppets. [[CombatSadomasochist The sadist enjoys]] twisting them and breaking them to "put on a show", at one point turning this power on [[spoiler:Gemini Kanon]].
** In the {{prequel}} ''SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas'', he looks forward to fighting especially {{Bishonen}} Gold Saint Pisces Albafica because he'd make a good puppet.

* In ''{{Pandora Hearts}}'', this is how Gilbert moves under the control of [[MarionetteMaster Zwei's]] chain, Doldum. It makes its point.
* In ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', [[spoiler:the title character moves like this while in Drosselmeyer's world.]] Also, one episode features the Doll's Waltz, a [[ShownTheirWork real ballet routine]] meant to look like this.

* In The remake of ''Film/HouseOnHauntedHill'', {{undercrank}}ing accompanied by deliberately slow movements resulted in a jerky style for the ghosts (particularly Vannacutt) that plunged them into the UncannyValley.

* The music video for Creator/NSync's "Bye Bye Bye" featured the boys being manipulated like marionettes by the young woman with whom they are presumably breaking up. The resulting marionette motion is incorporated into their dancing.
