-->This being was still human-shaped, still had the pale skin, brown eyes, and dead-white hair of the boy standing next to her[...]but he looked almost...stretched. Too tall and not wide enough, like a badly enlarged photo. His fingers were too long and too much like claws. His skin didn't seem to be quite opaque. If she looked hard, Tea could see the guttering shadows through the outline of his form.

* In ComicBook/{{X-Men}} fanfic ''FanFic/MutatisMutandis'', Northstar is basically described as vampirically beautiful. Rogue notices when she stares at Northstar's face for more than a few minutes, he looks so eerily perfect that he seems creepy and surreal.

* In spite of being heroes, the main characters from ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'' creep most of people out because they can tell what those teenagers may look human but they're [[HumanoidAbomination something different and very dangerous]].

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Asuka's [[{{Shapeshifting}} secondary form]] is frightening because she looks like a demon... and her skin and hair's colors don't look natural on a human.
-->My red skin. As in brilliant crimson, the colour of arterial blood flowing from a fresh wound, before clotting has kicked in. It was the sort of colour more associated with paints than with the spectrum of human flesh tones. It was unnatural and terrifying with its ultimate wrongness for it had not the same quality as painted skin either.\\
The same went for my hair. While copper was an accepted hair colour, mine was bronze. Again, it wasnít so much the colour in of itself that was wrong, it was the fact that it was on a human, because it didnít look like some strange admixture of blonde and red that might arise in nature, but it looked like it was made out of actual strands of metal. It just subtly did not look right.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': When Ritsuko ups Rei's emotion-dampener medication in chapter 8, Rei crosses the limit between "emotionless girl" and "creepy person who doesn't seem quite human":
-->''If Doctor Akagi had been watching, she might of noticed the careful rigidity that Rei held her face to melt swiftly into a far more eerie stillness.''

Added DiffLines:

* A few Franchise/MassEffect stories, such as the NSFW ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9073400/1/An-Unusual-Companionship An Unusual Companionship]]'' invert this. To humans, Asari are [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue Skinned Space Babes]]. But to some Asari, human women are too similar to them while being different enough to creep them out.

* In ''Fanfic/WhatAboutWitchQueen'', most people are put off by [[{{Snowlems}} snow]] [[AutomatonHorses horses]]. Inverted with Kai, though, who can't ride and finds his new AutomatonHorse great.
-->'''Kristoff:''' They're absolutely creepy.\\
'''Kai:''' No, they're not.\\
'''Kristoff:''' You're saying that only because you're a hopeless horseman and these are some automatons.\\
'''Kai:''' Maybe. But I do like that they'll never kick me, or throw me off, or trample me, or generally act like jerks towards meÖ

* Although a lot of it is heavily [[DependingOnTheWriter dependent on the individual writer]] due to the [[RecursiveFanfiction general nature of these works]], [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau the Newfoals]] (humans turned into ponies through a magical potion) will frequently give off this vibe to humans and natural born ponies.
** In ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauNotAlone'' and its sequel ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauConquerTheStars'', the newfoals are able to get sad, scared and even annoyed and frustrated, but they can't get angry or assert themselves. The natural born ponies are revealed to be unsettled by this, while the humans are just put off by how the newfoals possess their former human selves' memories and none of their original personality.
** In ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'', aside from being [[PerpetualSmiler perpetually smiling]], glassy-eyed {{Extreme Doormat}}s with no free will or individuality (to the point where many characters liken them to zombies), TCB!Trixie also points out that ''every'' single Newfoal, no matter how long it's been since they were ponified, is a blank flank, and she treats it as the unsettling icing on top of the creepiness cake. It's basically GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul taken UpToEleven and then some.
*** To a lesser extent, Comet Tail in the Asia Side Story finds regular earth horses to be rather unsettling and strange looking, though she notes they are still just somewhat better than the Newfoals. Another character named Sergei references this trope by name.

* Invoked with Dark Tails in ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'', whose unblinking pupiless white eyes and emotionless features freeze Tails and Cosmos with terror during their first encounter in Episode 62. It's also [[EldritchAbomination completely fitting]].
