The sight of her fake breasts approaching Cady is met with PsychoStrings, and Cady is clearly unnerved by her lack of reaction to her little chihuahua gnawing on her tit.

Dating back to Lee Falk the artist behind the ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom'' who claimed he was inspired to give The Phantom white eyes thanks to looking at Greek statues. Falk said there was a "inhuman" effect which suited a masked vigilante. Ironically this trend has stuck so well, that looked realistic but seemed very off.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': In-universe, Blanks, people who are born without a soul. While they look and act like completely regular people, other people are subconsciously aware of their lack of a soul, and the sheer unnaturalness of it causes them to instinctively hate and fear Blanks.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': In-universe, Blanks, people who Music/DavidBowie: Purposely invoked via makeup and image manipulation with the photos of the various characters in the liner notes for ''[[Music/{{Outside}} 1. Outside]]'', as well as on the album itself with their spoken-word "segues" between songs, which are born without digitally tweaked to vary the voices further. It doesn't take long to realize Bowie is playing all of them, including the women; the low point of the valley here is Baby Grace Blue, the 14-year-old girl whose murder kicks off the story.
* Music/TheCaretaker:
** The heavily sample-based music is designed to evoke this, quietly distorting the originals in ways meant to be atmospheric ambience, yet always subtly ''off'' by way of low quality, vinyl scratching sounds, and [[BrokenRecord inappropriate looping]] and inconsistent track-by-track flow. His more conceptual albums like ''An Empty Bliss Beyond This World'' and ''Everywhere at the End of Time'' are meant to be musical illustrations of the headspace of those suffering from mental disorders like Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and become even more unsettlingly warped and disturbing over time in
a soul. way that evokes [[SanitySlippage losing your mind]].
** In a more visual sense of this, the accompanying album cover illustrations by Ivan Seal also count.
While they look his paintings never depict human subjects, the inanimate sculptures he does depict are nevertheless very ambiguous, unidentifiable, and act like completely regular people, other people are subconsciously aware [[AlienGeometries quietly impossible, behaving in ways that wouldn't make sense in real life]]. There's ''something'' "real" in them, but garbled under twisted abstraction.
* The genre
of their lack {{hyperpop}} feeds off of this trope. All of the over-repetitiveness of some phrases, bright poppy colors and a soul, background whine in some songs make you feel just a little off. Not to mention the vocals being pitched just a little higher than usual and the sheer unnaturalness utter vapidity of it causes some songs. A proper example of this trope and a big part of the genre, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc1H3BaMNLg GFOTY]] really lives up to this, or [[Music/PCMusic Lipgloss Twins]] who just don't feel right [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ43nlWmoeA in this song]] are true to this trope.
** Music/{{Sophie}}, one of the genre's popularizers (if not [[TropeMakers originator]]) is a master at this, taking a step further by designing all her sounds from scratch, designing bizarre synths comparable to rubber/plastic/elastic using waveforms and chaotically integrating
them to instinctively hate and fear Blanks. Even in her tracks. The end results resemble songs inspired by hyper-polished 2000s-era bubblegum pop, but as if being a Blank makes you immune to the Warp, [[BlessedWithSuck it won't do much good when you get lynched entirely created by an angry mob]]."hyperkinetic" aliens.



[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' plays with this. To the people of the New England Commonwealth, the Institute's 1st- and 2nd-generation Synths, which look like {{Skele Bot}}s and {{Murderous Mannequin}}s respectively, are pure Nightmare Fuel because of this trope. 3rd-generation Synths, which can [[ArtificialHuman pass for human]], are pure ParanoiaFuel. But potential companion Nick Valentine averts Uncanny Valley, since he's a discarded prototype with obviously-fake "skin" and enough wear and tear to have his robot parts showing. As a result, he looks (and acts) human enough to be reassuring, but still obviously a robot instead of an infiltrator, and so is tolerated in Diamond City and even able to work as a private investigator.
* This is invoked with the Manikins in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne''. In-universe, it is discussed that they are not human, and even though they do look a lot like them, the characters just think there's something... ''off''. In the game, their tendencies to do random spasms, their mostly expressionless faces and pale skin (pale even by Megaten standards) are unsettling at best. They are usually friendly, however.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'': The Elibe duology invokes this as part of its ArtificialHumans theme. A few things that both [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade war dragons]] and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade morphs]] have in common are that they're both described as hardly feeling sentient, being produced in masses by the games' respective final bosses, and a majority of them lacking any proper intelligence, which results in them looking very "off" compared to the two species (Manaketes and Humans respectively) they're modeled after. They also tend to lack emotions, though in the case of ''Blazing Blade'', Kishuna is capable of displaying them.
* The final boss of ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheForgottenLand'', [[spoiler:Fecto Forgo]], looks a lot like a human embryo and has uncannily photorealistic and detailed eyes, which is especially apparent when they [[EyeAwaken dramatically open their eyes]] and [[spoiler:deliver their threat to consume everything]]. [[spoiler:Their true form as Fecto Elfilis]] also has this trait, as while they have a humanoid, angelic design, they also have disproportionately large hands, CreepyLongFingers, and digitigrade legs, which adds to their appearance as an AngelicAbomination. Both are clearly meant to look otherworldly and just plain ''wrong'', since they [[spoiler:are an invader not native to this world, and plan on subsuming the entire planet for their own purposes]].

* ''WebAnimation/ExtraCredits'' has mentioned the Uncanny Valley several times. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKTAJBQSm10 First in an episode specifically about it,]] then revisited in a Halloween episode and again in an episode about Kinect's controls.
* ''WebAnimation/GoingToTheStore2011'' and its sequels invoke this with featureless, unemotive CGI mannequins, their absurd bodily movements, and the remarkably high attention to detail in inserting them into real-world settings.
* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' mentions in episode 20 that the Salamanders invoke this reaction in the common citizens of the Imperium, as they have jet-black, coal-like skin and glowing red eyes.
* The ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' episode "Alone In The Woods" does this on purpose. A ways in, [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/rwby/images/2/2e/V6_06_00019.png/revision/latest?cb=20181208180011&format=original the eyes of some of the characters get seriously, SERIOUSLY dilated pupils]] and start talking in a tired monotone. That's not the animation -- ''that's the Apathy Grimm eating away at their will to live''.

The first two by virtue of exaggerated and odd movement, and the last due to being a self-animating ventriloquist's dummy.

Also the creepy "Angel of Death" (also known as 'the creepy guy with eyes on his wings'. is there a pattern here?) and much less creepy Abe Sapien from the ''Film/{{Hellboy|2004}}'' movies.

* The mascot from ''Series/{{Community}}'' falls under this trope. Having been designed to have no ethically distinguishing features, it ended up being an androgynous WhiteMaskOfDoom.

* Mentioned in ''Manga/MedakaBox'' as the reason of why Medaka's drumming solo failed to elicit any kind of reaction from her audience. Her playing was perfect to the point of coming across as cold and mechanical, lacking human emotion to it. Akune expresses that it's similar to the Uncanny Valley effect although Zenkichi claims it's the opposite: that Medaka is perfect to an inhuman degree, hence why her act came out as off to her listeners.

While the uncanny valley is usually known to be {{unintentional|UncannyValley}}, it can also intentionally be used in a work for the purpose of creeping out characters rather than viewers. As a result, they can be unsettled by someone or something they think lurks in the uncanny valley, even though the thing or character being encountered may very well be harmless. If it's another character rather than an inanimate object who comes across as unsettling, they may end up wondering why others are afraid of them, especially if they're otherwise good-natured.

See also UnintentionalUncannyValley, for when the reaction comes from viewers instead of characters within the work.
