* ''VideoGame/{{Overload}}'', a [[SpiritualSuccessor spiritual successor]] of ''Descent'', overdoes it by making basically all robots look borderline excessively creepy.

** Toy Chica [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this during the second game: when she begins to roam the halls, she ditches her beak and eyes, turning an [[UncannyValley already creepy robot]] into [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20141113015010/freddy-fazbears-pizza/images/c/c9/ToyChicaPortrait.png something of nightmares]].

* Most of Brother EYE's creations in ''ComicBook/TheNew52FuturesEnd'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanBeyond'' seem to focus on the edginess of sewing superheroes together into faux-[[TaletopGame/MagicTheGathering phyrexian]] creations rather than actual practical use. Probably the crowning example is attaching Barbara Gordon's torso to the Bat Signal, rendering both essentially less efficient than before.

* Can be invoked in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' if you give your machine empire robots the "Uncanny" trait, impacting your diplomatic prowess negatively even if you play as a relatively benevolent robot empire, simply because your robots are that creepy.
--> ''These monstrous machines were created in the image of one of the most horrific species in the universe, and the resemblance is uncanny.''

** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' only has one animatronic Springtrap, which is a decrepit version of Bonnie, which was found in a sealed off room. [[spoiler: It also has a human corpse trapped inside it.]]
** ''FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation'' has all the animatronics can separate their faces revealing their robotic parts underneath.

* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' Season XI episode "Give and Take", we have Asclepius, which features: [[CyberCyclops a single massive eye]] that is {{Sickly Green Glow}}ing, a mouth-grill that looks like [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily an impossibly massive set of fangs]] curled into a permanent SlasherSmile, a body designed like a stereotypical MadScientist labcoat, one hand that's a rotating array of blades and pincers, and another hand that's basically a cannon. Its designated function? ''Medical diagnosis and surgery''.



* ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'' gives us the Working Joes. The androids of Weyland Yutani, as seen starting with ''Film/{{Alien}}'' are extremely humanlike, except when cut and bleeding milky white fluid. The Working Joe androids of Seegson, on the other hand side, start in the UncannyValley and are programmed to dig it into an Uncanny Mariana Trench with their waxy appearance and bad AI that can barely deviate from its standard functions (but will still merrily try to strangle you while asking you to remain calm). It's fully acknowledged in-universe: The Seegson marketing department tries to spin their faults as features, claiming [[ParanoiaFuel noone would want an android]] that you [[TheyLookLikeUsNow can't tell from a human.]] Considering that for quite some time, the Working Joe rather than the titular creature was the face of the [[NightmareFuel/AlienIsolation Alien: Isolation Nightmare Fuel page]], it may come as little surprise that Seegson is in the process of going belly-up.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' takes place in a SuckECheeses where the animatronics are not only really creepy looking, but roam around the restaurant at night - and, due to [[AIIsACrapshoot shoddy programming]], see anybody they find as a robot out of costume and try to jam them into a suit filled with wires and electronics. The managers are evidently too cheap to get any of these things fixed.

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' the Phyrexians are a race of evil, magical, assimilatory undead cyborgs that seek perfection in horrific blends of metal and flesh. While they supposedly prioritize efficiency over all else, most if not all of their designs seem to focused in being as horrific as possible rather than efficient.
