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. [[/folder]]

* Bunraku puppets dance in and out of the valley. What's frightening is that they don't move like any other sort of puppet, they move exactly like little tiny people. This is why [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a0/Sanbasopuppet.jpg they usually perform bunraku shows some distance away from the audience]].

* Anything dealing with speculative evolution may contain this if the speculators decide to throw in a creature analogous to humans. See the (in)famous [[http://www.thinkaboutit-aliens.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/will-e-t-look-like-us_1.jpg Dinosauroid]] (a hypothetical, but now obsolete descendant of the small carnivore ''Troodon'')for a good example.

* Ladies and gents, 'PhineasAndFerb: The Best Live Tour Ever' gives us some new nightmares. Phineas, Ferb, and Buford are played by actors in costumes and look... well, not great, but not uncanny either. Everyone else is played by actors wearing, for lack of a better term, prosthetic eyes, and are ''[[http://thismamaknows.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/FINALE.jpg unspeakably horrifying]]''.

* Part of the reason that people are less understanding of mental disorders (especially [[AcceptableHardLuckTargets people on the Autism Spectrum]]) is that unlike a lot of physical disorders, there's not as obvious as a sign that there's something wrong other than their behaviors. ** People with UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome, who have difficulty with body language, can sometimes invoke this trope. Especially if they have a flat affect or emote oddly, which can come off as incredibly creepy.
