Keep Uncanny Valley as a disambiguation page
, describing the original robotics study, and split
the current examples into two new pages:
- Uncanny Valley Graphics: A subjective Audience Reaction about graphics or animatronics attempting to produce photorealism, accidentally ending up causing discomfort.
- Uncanny Valley Character: The in-universe trope describing a portrayal, where an abnormal character intended to be scary, is slightly less realistic than its context.
0 (yeas:16 nays:16) Keep Uncanny Valley as it is
, a subjective audience reaction that may or may not have author intention, and may be revolving around single character portrayals compared to their context, or a whole work's graphics.
-9 (yeas:8 nays:17) Redefine Uncanny Valley
as a subjective Audience Reaction
only, about graphics or animatronics failing to be completely realistic, and causing discomfort in viewers.
Launch a new page for the trope of scary humanoids being portrayed as slightly less realistic than their context, and move all the appropriate examples there.
-14 (yeas:4 nays:18) Redefine Uncanny Valley
as the invoked trope of abnormal characters being portrayed as slightly inhuman, and keep those examples.
Reference the subjective audience reaction to near-photorealistic graphics, in the description, as an alternative meaning of the term, but don't list examples of that.
