Dolls and puppets are innocent toys that are great for media for kids! More sinisterly, though, they can also serve as a good motif for any series wanting to wander into the Uncanny Valley or to suggest that a character is somehow fake. Here is an index to keep track of these cheerful (or not) objects and tropes that use them as metaphors.

Compare Body and Host, for other characters who have a relationship not unlike that of a puppet and puppeteer.
