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.

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.

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.

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.
