* Live-action works dubbed into a foreign language frequently fall into this, due to LipLock and VocalDissonance. Some languages, such as Latin American Spanish and Canadian French, up the artificial feel by using a "region-neutral" dialect barely spoken in RealLife, the equivalent of an English-language work using a mid-Atlantic accent (a practice that was abolished years ago). This is one reason English-language audiences[[note]]one of the few, albeit one of the largest, language demographics accustomed to non-dubbed works[[/note]] have an aversion to foreign works dubbed into their own language, which are often stereotyped as being [[HongKongDub cheesy and clearly artificial]].

* This effect is actually triggered by perfectly lifelike humans in Capgras delusion. People suffering from this delusion believe that others have been replaced by identical impostors or machines, due to perceptual abnormalities that cause them to mis-perceive real people as unreal. It's most commonly seen in schizophrenia, although it can also be associated with conditions like dementia or prosopagnosia (face-blindness).

* Many people on the Autistic Spectrum have difficulty with normal expressions of emotions, some have facial features that make them look OlderThanTheyAppear, and other walk more stiffly than normal. It has been noted that the stronger the Autism, the more obvious these Uncanny traits can become.

* [[http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2016-01/04/robot-receptionist Nadine,]] the robot receptionist. She looks almost exactly human, exhibits moods and emotions, and apparently even has her own personality. She's a friendly conversationalist and all, but I still wouldn't want to have a desk next to hers.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0_DPi0PmF0 This]] robot falls into this - between the fact that she [[BaldWoman has no hair]], never blinks, and holds her (often unusual) facial expressions for a ''lot'' longer than a real human would... it's hard to see her replacing any humans anytime soon.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smile#Duchenne_smile Duchenne smile]], named after the French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne, only involves the muscles around the corners of the mouth, where a genuine smile involves the muscles that contract around the corners of the eyes as well. This "fake" smile is used to show politeness. It's also been called the "Botox smile," because the cosmetic treatment paralyzes muscles to give a similar effect.

* Commercial animatronics for restaurants aimed at children, such as Chuck E. Cheese's and Showbiz Pizza, [[http://share.ojooo.com/30-delightfully-creepy-animatronic-shows-from-our-childhood-remind-us-how-weird-things-once-were seem to be uniformly horrifying]]. The anthropomorphic animals (and occasional human characters) are the approximate size and shape of a person, but thanks to their unnaturally stilted motions, perfectly round recessed eyes, and gawp-mouthed stares, they go from 'charming' to 'terrifying.' The startlingly human cast of many animatronic eyes or human-like teeth in animals that had no business with those features only makes the effect worse--[[http://r2-store.distractify.netdna-cdn.com/postimage/201410/9/5ce2254915b6d084c4fc7bf0374a68da.jpg Dook LaRue]] is one of the most visually distressing offenders.
** They can be manually overriden and controlled by individual operators in the control room if a special occasion calls for it, as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB0-i6cdpcg this]] Showbiz Pizza training video shows.
