Does this also apply to the creator invoking a trope that would normally be YMMV? Such as Uncanny Valley? For instance, if a character is not necessarily trying to invoke Uncanny Valley, but the creator is, does that count?

I believe that would simply be an example of the creator using a trope as a tool. Most trope appearances in fiction are deliberate; they exist to make storytelling more efficient and effective.
