* There is an "Uncanny Valley" with disabilities. The more obviously disabled you look, the more understanding people will be. Someone who "looks" normal, but has a disability will frequently be accused of "Faking it" to get attention and sympathy. The strongest place might be people on the Autistic spectrum. Being AcceptableHardLuckTargets, there's no obvious physical problem with them but their behavior is not right. Ironically, ''severely'' Autistic people will get more sympathy, since it may be more visible. Unlike...
** People with UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome. They may have a stiff body language and a flat affect or monotone voice. Those who do 'learn' to emote, often end up with ''exaggerated'' body language, and often stress their words differently to the norm. Family and friends adjust to it, but to strangers it can come off as incredibly creepy.
** The reason why mental disorders in general have such a big stigma is probably because of this phenomenon. It's been suggested that the uncanny valley exists in the first place was for our early ancestors to genetically select against behaviors or traits that seemed "wrong" to them.
** Some physical disorders also seem to invoke this kind of reaction, especially ones that affect the person's face or skin.

* Man made objects with organic features often seem just a little... off. For example, look at Art Nouveau (Say, Antoni Gaudí or Hector Guimard), or "Venetian grotto furniture", then look at illustrations for the Cthulhu Mythos or the fair-folk.

* 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.

* 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.
