** Done deliberately with the Data Doctor from ''Back in the Red'', apparently inspired by ''MaxHeadroom''.

* The majority of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villains were far enough away from human that this rarely applied, but any time they veered toward human-like, they hit this full-force. Take, for example, [[http://s.ecrater.com/stores/58244/4de0fcbd82293_58244n.jpg Madame Woe]] or [[http://images.wikia.com/powerrangers/images/8/8e/MMPR_Lipsyncher.jpg Lipsyncher.]]

** Heckyl from ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' is similar to the ''Kamen Rider'' villains mentioned on this page. He is (seemingly) twenty something man in AwesomeAnachronisticApparel (suit, waistcoat, pocket watch), whose expressions give off such a vibe that he only grasped the theory behind them. Also, he can go from AffablyEvil to foaming at the mouth angry and back at drop of the hat.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MrMeaty'' was ''made'' of this. Especially [[http://www.btvision.bt.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/mr_meaty_cms_big.jpg the two main characters Josh and Parker]].


Added DiffLines:

** On a similar note, the company's Creator/DrSeuss adaptation, ''Series/TheWubbulousWorldOfDrSeuss'', proved that the Dr. Seuss characters don't exactly translate well to puppetry with their oversized upper lips and disturbing tendency to [[SpikingTheCamera stare directly at the viewer]], unintentionally or not.
* ''Series/LazyTown'', in spite of its [[MemeticMutation extremely memetic]] status, managed to disturb more than a few people with its puppet characters and their large eyes.

His smiles go from mostly normal [[spoiler: and even somewhat heartwarming on few rare occasions]] to the ''teeth barred, corners of mouth upturned'' version of TechnicallyASmile ''three inches from your face''.

* ''[[Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs Walking with Cavemen]]'''s human ancestors, who are actually PeopleInRubberSuits. Especially ''Australopithecus'', because they are ''supposed'' to look weird, but their human proportions make them just slightly less weird than they should.

* In the ''Series/BlackMirror'' story "Be Right Back", a woman buys an artificial meat effigy of her dead husband coded with a facsimile of his personality based on his social media posts. It starts to have this effect on her after a while, when she begins to pick up on things like the fact that he doesn't breathe, and that instead of sleeping he lies next to her with his eyes open, and how the pores and creases on his skin are completely two-dimensional and 'bump-mapped'.

*** David Boreanaz and James Marsters wear it the Vampire make-up very well, James Marsters as Spike can contort his face into a [[https://i.pinimg.com/600x315/7e/ef/93/7eef93a5d7fb472555e57f90bff4aa52.jpg massive snarl]] which is more jarring than the heavy make-up of most Demons.

** The Wiggles puppets that used early own had terrifying wide smiles and high voices, eventually removed thanks to parent complaints.

* The three creepiest characters on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' are generally considered to be Gnarl, the Gentlemen, and Sid. The first two by virtue of exaggerated and odd movement, and the last due to being a self-animating ventriloquist's dummy.

Added DiffLines:

** Even the regular old Vampire make-up or "GameFace" while created to make people feel less sorry for the rampant murder of normal looking people is still creepy also thanks to the dated computer effect to make the vampire face appear seamlessly without cutting away like in the early series.
*** The make up is ''slightly'' different depending how the actor's facial structure, this especially noticeable for the female vampire [[https://i.pinimg.com/736x/07/d7/70/07d770739b91867965f42eb662d18359--buffy-the-vampire-slayer-fx-makeup.jpg faces]] since actresses usually have differently shaped faces to male actors so the make-up is affected which is effectively disconcerting and uncanny.

* Explicitly invoked in ''AgentsOfShield'' as the reason why Radcliffe used a real person's appearance when building [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Aida]]; starting from scratch always resulted in this trope. Personality-wise, she still [[DissonantSerenity dances on the edge of this trope]], though not enough for people who aren't robotics experts to figure out why.
