Grand Unifying Guesses: Groups involved with, controlled by, or spun-off from the SCP Foundation.
The Foundation is SCP-000.Think about this: how exactly does one get thousands of disposable employees? Complete government trust, and a private army to boot? All a little crazy, right? An SCP is a universal anomaly that acts in a certain arbitrary manner: the only canon in SCP Foundation is that any logical presumption is not universal. The Foundation is a memetic entity with the desire to create an internally consistent universe, nearly always refusing to use SCP's for non-SCP-related benefit. That's why it's so ruthless or even reckless with human life. It's not "protecting" humanity, or even itself, because it's a universal self-maintenance mechanism, a sort of governance for the multiverse, easily capable of Donnie-Darko-style attracting people to itself to maintain the cosmic hierarchy.
Everything in the SCP universe has unusual/paranormal abilities
The reason the Keter-class beings didn't end the world before the Foundation started is because they naturally keep each other in check.Many of the highly destructive beings seem aware of one another and often mutually inimical, like when SCP-682 recognized and fought SCP-17. There is a higher, self-sustaining cosmic order to the universe that humans do not understand. The Foundation is an annoyance and is messing up this balance of the cosmos, potentially destroying existence.
Facts are redacted in order to make SCPs scarier, so that governments will tolerate the Foundation.SCP's are edited to be as scary as possible. The first SCP is not a doomsday monster but merely a fetal creature. It will haunt your nightmares certainly, but it can't threaten the universe. SCP's do not exist Lovecraftian and beyond our comprehension: they only seem that way because of redactions and such. The Foundation has a vested interest in its mystery: that's they only way governments will trust its ruthless methods are just, and ruthless methods are of course massively profitable.
SCP 343 isn't God.He simply wishes to heavily imply he is God, to mess with the Foundation. In SCP universe, God doesn't exist, because God made the universe fundamentally sane, and SCP canon fundamentally isn't. If the Foundation was doing His will and God didn't want to interfere in stuff like the constant attempts to kill SCP-682,, that doesn't make sense either: why would God show up in the first place if he didn't want to interfere?
SCP-882 is the heart of god from The God And World and SCP-835 is The God Of Flesh it fought with.The Church of the Broken God want to bring back the Gear God and will try to destroy any other SCPs that correspond to the other areas in the story.
SCP-962 worships the broken god.The thing inside 962 believes that a "GREAT ONE" was shattered during the creation of the earth and later turned into the "GREAT ONES", AKA humankind. The church of the broken god believe that their god was, well, broken at some point in the past, and are trying to put him back together. Both centre around various metals, with 962 twisting various specimens of wildlife into a humankind shape, and the church offering metal as sacrifices, as well as augmenting some members with clockwork limbs. SCP Foundation website is a cover-up.
Dr. Clef isn't just lying about himself, he's lying about everything.None of his adventures that he writes about are in any way true at all.
The SCP Wiki is part of a cover-upThe REAL SCP Foundation publicizes some of its most leak-prone materials through the site so that if the documents actually are linked they'll get traced back to the wiki and written off as a boring 4chan micro-fiction project.
Dr. Palmer doesn't really exist.Nothing proves her existence, just a handful of namedrop moments... no profile page, no photography, nothing.
SCP-239 never believed what the Foundation told her.They told her she was a witch, and they were an order of magic users. She alters reality to how she thinks it is. So if she really believed them, why hasn't reality changed to match?
SCP-610 is BLACKLIGHT.
The SCP Foundation is a front organization... for the exact same organization
Theta Prime isn't a numberAlthough dangerous, it is possible to store Theta Prime electronically. given the fact that computers are designed using our "flawed" mathematics, any attempt to store it electronically would have to store the symbol used to represent it, rather then the numerical value itself. Thus, Theta Prime's unusual properties are a result of the symbol used to represent it. The formula that proves Theta Prime's existence as a number is flawed, but the symbol for Theta Prime hypnotizes anyone who sees it into being unable to find fault in that formula or any other that supposedly proves its existence as a number.
Theta Prime is the result of pi being brokenThe Rules of The Internet clearly state: "Any breaking of pi will result in pi being broken. No one knows the consequences. You have been warned." Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked pi, and now here we are.
Theta Prime is a number from another dimensionWe didn't miss a number. A number was added, from some other universe, and it integrates itself into anything it can break by screwing up the number system that thing works off of.
529's hindquarters existThey are merely not attached to the front half, and are wandering around somewhere.
If the "Global Occult Coalition" Wiki is successful, "The Church of the Broken God" and "Marshall, Carter, and Dark, Ltd." will also gain wikis.
SCP-107-J is BananaphoneRemember the animation that made it a meme for a while? It played in a guys head until he went practically comatose and died, and then one of the other guys in the animation started hearing it. SCP-107 is a bit more extreme, but it's otherwise quite similar...
Following above theory, SCP-682 is an anomaly created by separation of Holy TrinityThat's why 343 cannot see it and claims he didn't create it. 682's existence is possible by God's absence and it cannot die as long as the Trinity is broken. Once 343, 239 and Mr. Deeds unite again, the first thing reborn God will do is to destroy 682.
SCP-447 was somehow created from dead bodiesThe evidence? When a corpse was run through SCP-914, the result was noted as being very similar to SCP-447...
SCP-231-7's whatever-the-fuck-that-is feeds on pain:Okay, so the first 231 gave birth but was not put through Montauk beforehand, and was not touched by the Foundation: Casualties in the thousands. Now consider 231-5, who gave birth later in a botched Montauk attempt, after probably having gone through it for God know how many times - that means the pain the fetus absorbed was gigantic. That it wiped out an entire Foundation site (usually very large) proves that its damage is proportional to the pain the abomination has eaten upon giving birth.
SCP-231's [DATA EXPUNGED] is another SCP-682The Montauk Monster was a corpse that washed up on a beach that looks like a monster. The picture of SCP-682 is of a similar oddity. The procedure to eliminate SCP-231's [DATA EXPUNGED] is called 110-Montauk. Everyone at SCP is terrified of SCP-682. If she's going to give birth to one, it makes sense that they'd go to ridiculous, hideous lengths to prevent it.
SCP-682 is actually a retarded form of its species.Imagine. Even slightly dumber or weaker or less superadapting than the rest of its kind. And now think how hard it is for the Foundation to keep it under control, and what might have happened if, say, a normal specimen was out in the world...
Someone in the Foundation is named Fred.When SCP-423 was exposed to a hard copy of its own experiment log, it briefly created an endless Recursive Reality. A similar experiment was run using SCP-826 and gave the same result. This raised the possibility that the SCP Foundation and the world around it may already exist within some kind of printed document. Since then, guest researcher Fred has become the target of many suspicions.
SCP-208 is Santa Claus.He's a short and stout (i.e. fat) man with a beard, is really friendly, is fond of children and makes everyone around him feel good. Sounds like a match to me. You Cannot Grasp the True Form of it. It's so horrible, so awful, so downright terrifying that your mind instantly erases it form memory.
Warren Ellis is a member of SCP FoundationC'mon, some of their SCPs looks like something he could pull out.
The reason you can't see 055 is because it's Milhouse.Because Milhouse is not a meme. (Sorry.)
SCP-231-7 is not an SCP, nor will it ever give birth to one.There are no SCP-231-1 through SCP-231-6. The SCP Foundation made up that story. What is SCP-231-7, really? She's just some little girl that the Foundation was able to kidnap. They now use her to do psych evaluations for the squicky stuff that DOES have to be done; to make sure that the D-Class really is willing to do anything. Further, as she ages at a normal rate, there is a continuous rotation—when the current SCP-231-7 gets too old to invoke the intended psychological effect, they terminate her and get a new one.
The universe is expanding because SCP-184 is not contained in an object.Which also means new and increasingly... off universes are being continually created by the thing. It may be better to contain it in a cardboard box. Eldritch Abomination that would destroy the world. We have an Eldritch Abomination that destroyed a world. Do the math.
SCP-040-1a is causing harm to SCP-040.SCP-040-1a is a symbiotic life form that feeds on nutrients from 040's bloodstream. It's likely that it is taking too many from her which is why she has sensitive skin and brittle hair. this song. Now, if we find out Anal Cunt is hiding a time machine, we'd have to check to see if they actually went back in time and voted for Hitler.
SCP-682 was once humanHe somehow gained access to the ability to self-modify, and decided he really, really didn't like human existence. SCP-536 to dispatch 682 (536 creates localized alterations of cosmic constants like strong nuclear force and speed of light—a pocket Eldritch Location, essentially), not only did it not work, despite successfully dispatching tissue samples, it seemed like 682 was enjoying it. Never mind Earthly life forms—our cosmos is an Eldritch Location to it. So guess how it views the creator of such a dominion...or would view...
SCP and GOC are actually headed by the same person/people.While the obviously sane thing to do is have one organization dedicated to preserving certain artifacts and destroying others, you run into the problem of people who are variously concerned only with preservation or destruction, not both. Solution: Create one organization for each in order to streamline the preservation and destruction, and get those only-interested-in-one-aspect candidates. Create a fiction of independent existence and rivalry for further catalyzing. If you're nefarious enough (like certain rumors about Clef indicate), you can even use the GOC to further world conquest goals by tricking them into thinking certain artifacts are too dangerous to humanity to exist...and thus have them destroy things whose very existence made your conquest more difficult...
Exposing 447 to dead bodies......Causes the bodies to reanimate. And sing show tunes. Really bad show tunes.
SCP-272 is the key to killing SCP-682It's probably greatest tool for inflicting vigorous amounts of physical trauma at astronomic speed ever conceived; it's just a matter of getting a fast moving and/or powerful enough light source to maximize the distance between the thing we want to kill and its shadow. We could probably create a light strong enough to pin its shadow to the moon, for starters. And it'd be interesting to see how this tremendous intellect reacts to the insanity effect if it can be pinned in place for three days, which in its regular sedated state doesn't seem unlikely. . .
106 and 035 are connectedThink about it. They both secrete corrosive fluid, the both torture for fun (albeit in different ways) and they both poses space warping abilities. if that was not enough, 035 host degrades physically but continues to function. 106 is in an advanced state of decay but still functions.
682 is female.053's picture with the Desire Camera showed her playing with 682, with the monster wearing a frilly dress. If anyone's equipped to identify whether 682 is female or not, it's probably 053. This leaves open the horrible possibility that it may breed.
231-7 knows damn well what she's carrying, and was in on the cultists' plan.Well, you can tell yourself that so you can sleep at night ... But it is within the realms of possibility, considering the Foundation has already encountered cases of the Enfant Terrible. Even if she wasn't keen to actually release it on the world before, she probably is now. Wouldn't you be?
Procedure 110-Montauk is tickles!They expunged the data so the ridicule of the situation would have as little exposure as possible.
Procedure 110-Montauk isn't done to SCP-231-7.It's done to the extracted fetus: Possibly the only thing worse than everything implied by 110-Montauk is being forced to watch it happen to your own offspring as you're restrained to the bed. Then after they're done having their way with it they force SCP-231-7 to administer a Mercy Kill.
231 is actually contained within a main SCP site.The convoluted method of getting there is just a red herring.
557 originally contained 682.Mention is made of the "bastard son of Apep"; Apep was a serpent god, and the reptile theme would fit.
Dr. King has witnessed the effects of an apple from 891.After that sort of experience, I'd be terrified of apple-seeds (and anything else apple-related) too.
SCP-682 can only be destroyed by something we would regard as utterly harmlessBecause they'd never think of that at the SCP Foundation.
Diamanda Hagan went mad from watching SCP-993 as a childThe demented clown make-up, the crazed behavior, the cursing... it all fits.
SCP-321 is Bright's sibling, too.In page comments, Dr. Bright (the writer) said that in his personal canon, Jack Bright has an older brother, Mikell (aka "05-6" aka "Agent Cowboy"), and a younger brother, TJ (aka SCP-590). In the Foundation Tale titled We're Off To Be The Lizard, Dr. Bright (the character) confirms having a sister named "Claire Pierce." One of Dr. Bright's entries in the Wanderer's Library, The Tale Of The Brothers, details three brothers and two sisters as descendants of the Prophet. The three brothers are clearly Mikell, Jack, and TJ, and the "other [sister] who runs from her blood" must be Claire, as the first sister is said to have been stillborn. In Bright's SCP-001 Proposal, 05-1 refers to Jack's father as "Adam." 321 is female. Her parents are named Adam and Evelyn in 321's report, which Dr. Bright also authored. Both of these Adams were 05's. (Admittedly, the Adam from 321's page worked his way up to 05 status from Junior Researcher, while the Adam from the 001 proposal was a founding member, and thus was an original 05. Also, 321-Adam's last name has only five letters, and could not be "Bright" as 001-Adam's was.)
In Procedure 110-Montauk, they force SCP-231-7 to watch cheesy movies. The worst they can find......But unlike Mike and Joel, she doesn't have any robot friends to help keep her sanity.
The entity within SPC-911 is the mind of the Broken God.It wants to merge with at least two other SCPs, which is also what its Church seeks.
SCP-682 is Gustave.
The entity in SCP-1315 Level 18 is functionally identical to 173"This challenge is easier for two players than for a single player", because one can blink while the other looks.
If/When the site ever makes it that far, SCP-4869 will be a supernaturally clever ace detective.It wouldn't be the first time the foundation had used thematically appropriate numbers.
SCP 073-2 is EnkiduFirst of, it's Able, not Abel. SCP 073-2 is a humanoid-but not actual human from the Middle East from the dawn of human civilisation, whose native language seems a very ancient Sumerian. It is superhuman, i.e. about equal to Gilgamesh. His favorite work is the Epic of Gilgamesh. And he is very good in animal husbandry.
SCP-053 and SCP-682 are from the same reality/dimensionIn fact, they're the same species. And SCP-682's in love.
SCP-674 does work, just in an alternate universe.The SCP also causes the user to see the TV broadcasts from the universe he's slowly depopulating of major political figures. heretics, sorcerers and the abnormal. Sound familiar? And then there's what could very well have been SCP-682 formerly locked up in the deepest, most secure part. deems us all as unworthy and attempts to kill us as a result. Based on 682's attitude, we can also safely conclude that no Egyptian actually passed the trial.
682 comes from a place where there is no concept of death.This is also why it hates all Earthly life with a passion. We, as creatures that can and will inevitably die while being forced to rely on random mutation and reproduction for changes, are basically half baked abominations that should not exist from its perspective. The fact that there are creatures who can't automatically adapt to everything on the spot and don't live for eternity is a Go Mad from the Revelation moment for it.
The key to killing 682 lies in exploiting its ability to live.682 seems to instinctually react to other SCP's, adapting to them almost without conscious decision. So if you introduce an SCP intended to prolong life, it will adapt to counteract this. What would be a counteraction to extending life? Dying. Or, alternatively, Revive Kills Zombie.
The girl mentioned in black white black white black white black white black white gray is SCP-231-7.231-7 is nothing if not someone "whose life was tattered by trauma she never deserved." She received one mere act of human kindness, and because it interrupted the effects of Procedure 110-Montauk, the Foundation killed the man responsible. They then performed the procedure and wiped her memory again as if nothing had happened.
All or at least the majority of SCPs are the result of objects from other universesIt is canon (what ever loose canon we can claim for this universe) that several of the SCPs are not from our universe, 682 being a prime example, and others are portals to other places. The simple logical step, these items are not from our universe. They don't follow the laws of physics, because they are from a universe with a very different laws of physics, places without Newtons three laws would seem to be the most logical first start. The barriers between universe is just filled with holes that objects slip out of one and into another, areas that exist in multiple universes at once, and hidden ways to get between universes. It would also explain why objects from the future and the past, they come from universe with a slightly slower or faster "times" (or earth with a slightly different gravity).
SCP-682 knows what Procedure 110-Montauk is.Which is why he thinks we're "disgusting".
Marshall, Carter, and Dark is not located in London itself, but the City of London.Ok, this one can take some real world explaining. In the real life London, there is actually a tiny city within the capital of the UK called the "City of London." Once a Roman trading post protected by sturdy walls and became rich and very powerful even after the Roman empire collapsed. Come in William the Conqueror, who found that sieging out a city with a big stone wall (most castles where still wood at the time) on a river with a ton of trading connections was to much trouble and reached an agreement that he would leave the city alone and let them have all the rights they gotten used to if they agree to call him their king. Fast forward to today, the city of London stands, still within the mile long chunk that the Romans made right in the middle of the nation. It's unique status which has held to this day, the can ignore many laws and regulations that apply to the rest of the country, and is often called the financial center of the world, with how many banks and large corporations are located there. It seems just the logical place for the ultra rich to have a base where they experience many forbidden and unique pleasures.
Able was Genghis Khan.Both are known to be highly skilled in combat and military tactics, with major bloodlust issues. Able's tomb was unearthed in Mongolia; Genghis Khan was buried in Mongolia, but nobody knows where. It fits that, since this is Able we're talking about, the medieval Mongols might not have wanted him to resurrect again.
The 'trickster forest god' that saved humanity from SCP-1000 was Dr. ClefReally, wouldn't it fit his personality?
The monster inside of SCP-432 is a WendigoOne of the items retrieved from the explorations of SCP-432 was an empty food tin, with traces suggesting that human tissue and blood had been mixed with the food. Wendigo are malevolent spirits that transform those who commit cannibalism into monsters. At some point, somebody wandered into the cabinet and ate human flesh mixed with the tinned beans. They transformed into a monster and now wander the labyrinth and hunt anyone else who comes in.
The Foundation does not want to kill SCP-682 at allThink about it, they test a lot of SCPs on it, many of which end up destroying a large percentage of its biomass before it adapts a proper response to it, some of it even coming pretty damn close to killing it, so why not catalog a bunch of things that may kill 682 and use them all at once? They're not trying to kill it, they're toughening it up in preparation to sic it on some greater threat in a Godzilla Threshold situation—say, whatever's in SCP-231-7's womb.
A number of files are deliberate fakesSome files are deliberately fabricated in order to promote some agenda. The most likely culprits are:
There are multiple Churches Of The Broken GodAt the very least, there should be an "Orthodox" branch which believes that there is a literal god that was broken and specific pieces have to be reassembled to get it back. They're most likely the ones who want the SCPs with gears and the ones that produce 'living' metal. Then there is a "Reformed" branch which treats the story of the Broken God as a parable and is just trying to create a post-Singularity being. They're primarily after the software-based SCPs.
SCP-579 is actually a self-aware Strangelet... sort of.One of the most daring, mysterious and unknown SCPs is actually a Strangelet. If it were let loose, it converts everything around it into exotic matter, resulting in the frequent loss of sites.. and the only thing that holds it in place is an electromagnetic force, something that can affect the Strangelet.. sort of. The point of origin was a particle accelerator which accidentally created it and released it. The Foundation has tried repeatedly to get the Strangelet back into the accelerator so they could destroy it in the same way it was created, but this led to the site being converted.. so there was no way to get rid of this thing.
SCP-1171 is related to/the same species as 682.They're both eldritch abominations that hate humans.
The reason why the inhabitants of SCP-1235 have such advanced technology is because of the creators of SCP-186 teamed up
The birds on SCP-930 are the people who visited the island before.It's made abundantly clear at the end that the birds aren't trying to hurt anyone, they're trying to save people by scaring them away. There's something far worse on that island and anyone who goes there disappears forever. It's possible that whatever is on that island is not only killing people (which is confirmed from the last photograph), but somehow, it is transfiguring them into birds. Possibly by taking their souls and implanting them into a bird's body. The birds are trying to warn people that if they don't leave, they'll suffer the same fate,but unfortunately people are too busy being terrified of them to listen.
Cassy is a benevolent Charm Person.Why else is the Foundation so keen on being nice to her (besides the fact that they created her to begin with)?
The Foundation is run by corrupt power-grubbers.Entries like SCP-006 show that the Foundation might not exactly be working as it claims. Specifically, the Fountain of Youth would be tremendously useful within the Foundation in prolonging the lives of personnel working with some fatal and/or Keter SCPs. Instead, the O5 are taking it all for themselves. And consider the hidden note at the end of the O5 note in SCP-231. The real reason why they don't want to save her may be that without the threat it poses to the world, the higher-ups would lose some of their power. And damned be it if they have to endanger the world to hold on to that power. Going even deeper, a corrupt Ethics Committee would be even worse than a corrupt O5, since not only are they The Man Behind the Man, it would make them doubly Straw Hypocrites — not just to the world at large, but to the Foundation itself. Now consider the fact that they designed 110-Montauk, and follow up with the Foundation not wanting to save her, despite absolutely needing to not a bit too late. What's worse, the Foundation is by all indication outside of any government regulation and above international law, meaning nothing can stop them if they want to hold the world hostage with a Keter.
SCP-053, SCP-579 and SCP-682 are the children of SCP-231-1 through SCP-231-6Worse. SCP-231-1 through SCP-231-6 were injected with SCP-447 and that all of their children are technically dead yet aren't recognized as such by SCP-447 because they are still attached to the womb and once the children are born SCP-447 immediately classes them as corpses and converts them into abominations. Since the children each had time to grow while in the womb between births the SCP-447 created abominations ended up each getting stronger. If an adult human's corpse were to get in contact with SCP-447 it would not only be The End of the World as We Know It yet also The End of the Universe as We Know It.
In relation to the above: The Scarlet King is Dr. ClefHe claims to be the Devil and SCP-343 claims that SCP-682 isn't his so this all implies that Clef is the Scarlet King and is using Procedure 110-Montauk to delay the child of SCP-231-7's birth long enough so that it grow big enough so that once it's born SCP-447 would turn it into a very powerful monstrosity.
The "children" of the Seven Brides (SCP-231) are the Seven Deadly Sins.Specifically, their patron demons. Belphegor, demon of Sloth, was probably one of the earliest "children", and didn't cause that much damage because he was too lazy to. Leviathan, demon of Envy, was one of the latest ones and caused untold loss of life by his sheer immensity. The offspring of SCP-231-7 would be the demon of Pride, aka Lucifer himself...
231-7 is the offspring of 231-6 and so on back to 1.Like some kind of horrible set of Russian dolls.
At some point, somebody prevented SCP-682 from being conceived.SCP-343, a being who's suspected to be God, doesn't recognize 682 as one of his creations. Keep in mind that God is supposed to have created everything. If 343 is God, then either He didn't create absolutely everything, or doesn't register SCP-682 because SCP-682 was never created. At some point, people tried to prevent 682 from ever existing by killing whoever or whatever spawned it. Being utterly impossible to kill, SCP-682 survived.
The "Knockout game" (and other kinds of teenage "fad violence") is a Foundation plot to get more teenage D-classNo one is aware of these attacks until the mass media starts reporting them; teens learn about the new "fad" and try it themselves, which gets reported to the mass media, which inspires other teens... eventually they get arrested and while the public is told that only the actual attacker is sentenced the whole gang is rounded up.
SCP-682 is a relic from previous universe
SCP-682 originally lived amongst the dinosaurs... until humans wiped them outOkay, this one may sound a bit nonsensical at first, but what I'm getting at here is that the first time 682 entered our dimension, it was a friendly creature. It arrived here back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth and it got along with them perfectly, occasionally trying to teach the weaker ones how to adapt to the harsh conditions of the world and fight off enemies; something we all know 682 is pretty good at. But then comes the day when the dinosaurs are wiped out, not just by a random asteroid from space, but by a hostile object sent back in time by humanity during what was going to be our destruction. There's plenty of Time Travel SCP's I'm sure the Foundation itself could've utilized in order to achieve this. The sole survivor of the disaster, for obvious reasons, was 682 and it knows that the object that wiped out the creatures he lived with was an object created and sent back in time by man. This is why it hates humanity and vows to destroy them just like they destroyed his kin. So, what was the object that was sent back in time then? Well, I'd like to believe that The Foundation somehow discovered a way to shrink and eventually get rid of the dreaded SCP-1548, otherwise known The Hateful Star, and that that's the thing that got sent back in time and killed the dinosaurs. It would also, in a way, make 1548 and 682 mortal enemies, unbeknownst to them both.
The Foundation is actually a massive drug cartel.
More than one of the SCP-001's is true, and they all tie into each other.
The song "Charlie on the MTA" was written by Foundation agentsAt one point in the late 40s or early 50s, the Foundation failed to properly recover SCP-342 after an experiment in Boston, and it fell into the hands of a civilian. His friends and family, as well as the people who had been on the train with him, were given amnestics; however, the story leaked out before the agents could wipe everyone's memories, so the song was released to cover up the incident. "Did you hear about that guy who couldn't get off the MTA?" "Oh yeah, that's just a political campaign song. Supposedly he couldn't get off because he didn't have the exit fee. They don't actually stop you from leaving, that would be ridiculous."
The beings seen through SCP-178 are not malevolent.They just don't realise humans aren't as durable as they are; slashing each other is how they say hello, and they don't touch those not wearing the glasses because they wouldn't be so rude as to speak to someone who hasn't introduced themself.
Alternately, they're not the ones doing the slashing.Several of them don't appear to have claws in the configuration needed to leave the wounds the victims suffer. Therefore, something else which is invisible even with the glasses is trying to stop humans interacting with them; either with bad intent, or to protect them from whatever worse thing the visible entities might do.
231-7 is dead.The fetus is and always has been a Puppeteer Parasite. It has killed and completely hollowed out 231-7 herself and is using her body as a vessel. The screaming people hear when the project is administered is the fetus attempting a Wounded Gazelle Gambit. The Overseers, being the Overseers don't buy it for a second, but the personnel working on it do...
SCP-811 and SCP-106 were created from the same oozeConsidering their similar properties (corrosive, predatory, etc), it would make sense.
Bright can be freed from 963 by dying of natural causesHe's only been trapped on the mortal plane all these years because he never seems to stay in one body for long, and presumably chooses healthy, youthful ones because they're more comfortable to be in.
Everything anomalous is Dr. Clef's fault.Somehow. Even where it would contradict itself, or even be outright impossible or wrong.
SCP-811 is just The Pig PenShe doesn't really have green skin, acidic mucus on her palms or even an incomplete digestive system. She's just really really dirty from living in a swamp her whole life.
SCP-811 thinks she's ugly and/or wants to be prettySeveral of her requests were related to maintaining her appearance, i.e. a hair brush and a D-Class washing her hair every so often. This may be because she's self conscious about her appearance, thinking she is ugly beyond help and that only her hair can be salvaged.
231-7 is one of the chains holding SCP-2317 in place.231-7 was never human and expunged Procedure 110-Montauk is merely all the failed attempts to keep the chain from breaking. The SCP-██ that keeps being mentioned is SCP-2317.
Either 682 or Walter will be involved in 2317's re-capture or destruction.The chains binding it are allegedly made from a "Devourer entity", after all...
SCP-087 is benevolent....if not exactly nice. All of the symptoms of SCP-087 that the Foundation has discovered - the inhuman face, the darkness, the feeling of dread, the sheer length of the staircase - are a 'warning buoy' set up to discourage people from reaching the real origin of the screaming child's voice at the bottom. If making the climb frightening and inconvenient isn't enough to drive an intruder away, SCP-087 will perform a Mercy Kill, because a few human deaths here and there are a small price to pay compared to what will happen if a sentient being makes contact with what's really down there.
682 is a Well-Intentioned Extremist who is only trying to keep what he sees as "diseased vermin" from spreading.Take the following into consideration. In Real Life, when a population is diseased (Whether due to parasites, viruses, or whatnot), the population is often culled as a form of Mercy Kill to prevent the disease from spreading to other populations. Likewise, if an animal is born with a genetic defect, it is also killed since it likely won't survive very long anyway (and sometimes to prevent certain genetic diseases to be passed down through the population). Now, take into consideration how 628 sees us. What if he's trying to kill everyone as a means to keep what he views as a "diseased" life form from spreading to other worlds? This would also explain his supposed hatred towards all life. He can't afford to get emotionally attached to something he feels is "disgusting" and that he must terminate. 682 is only pretending to hate us in order to make his job of wiping out humanity (and other earthly life forms) much easier to do.
SCP-239 really is a witchOr at least, her powers really are magic. No science (besides the eye beams) involved, it's all magic.
Crossovers: SCP- 682
682 is an adult form of The Monster in the Darkness.The Monster's either gotten sufficiently used to organic beings to get along with them, or is simply too young to realise that they should be scary to it (it's heavily implied in OOTS that the Monster is a juvenile, whatever it is). Though if there is a juvenile 682 out there, that implies there are several of it around. Eek.
682 is a mutant form of the tarrasque.Unlike the original, it can speak and seems actively evil rather than True Neutral.
SCP-682 is Discord.It's a malevolent, chaotic being which kinda looks like a lizard (or at least like some quadruped), though it looks like he's lost its Reality Warper powers and can only apply them to himself. Looks like Celestia decided that banishment to another universe will be the surest form of containment. Sounds like a stretch? The story Letter of the Day" is quite an argument for this theory.
SCP-682 is The Winslow.It's a four-legged reptile; it's indestructible — as far as anyone can tell; it's talking, but not very smart — as far as anyone can tell; it's on Earth and in humans' possession, but has no apparent good reason to be here. They just got the poor croc already pissed off and kept him in murderous mood with their tests. Also, once you saw this WMG, you can't unsee it.
SCP-682 is DoomsdayIt's both hard to kill and grows stronger from its injuries.
SCP-682 is a great old one, that the foundation somehow managed to contain.One of the great old ones (I think named Dythalla) was described on the other wiki as "a large lizard with a tentacled mane." Great old ones are almost completely indestructible. Sound familiar?
SCP-682 is actually Godzilla (the original one) if he fell into our universe and was subjected and adapted to our physics.Is it really need to explain? In case it is, gigantic, incredibly powerful yet surprisingly intelligent reptilian monster with incredible regeneration abilities that that is nigh-unkillable even when faced with other Eldritch Abominations would describe both very well.
SCP-682 is the future form of Gavrill Madaraki.A surprising amount of fanart depicts 682 with hair (and the original picture might qualify, if you interpret it as hair rather than seaweed). Gavrill's mutant wolf form shares the hair and long snout. Both are extremely resilient (Gavrill can take a nuke to the face), have healing factors, and feel nothing but contempt for Puny Humans. Thus it is possible 682 is actually Gavrill suffering from Mode Lock in her wolf form, making her even less likely to behave than usual.
SCP-682 is a compact and sentient universe.SCP-682 is incapable of being destroyed by this or any other reality because it can simply adjust its physics set to protect itself in ways normal universes can't, as the Foundation's universe relies on the Foundation for containment purposes. SCP-682's homeworld is whatever multiverse-area all these universes are floating in. Should we figure out how to destroy the universe, doing it in SCP-682 might do the trick to blow it up.
SCP-682 is Envy.Somehow.
682 is related to The Thing Hiding Under Your Stairs.The skull shape similar.
SCP-053 and SCP-682 are alternate dimension counterpart to Saya and Fuminori.682 has altered perception, every lifeform appears to him as if it were something squicky. Since he's a monstrous being with Nigh-Invulnerability now, so he can actually kill them. Dead squick is still squicky, but at least it won't move around. Then we have 053, Saya with some alteration. Now everyone see her as human, but she still isn't one. With eye contact, touch, or being around her long enough, one will finally sense what she really is and gone mad. But 682's altered perception see her as she really is from start, and she is at least a fine sight, if not beauty, compare to carbon-based beings.
SCP-682 is a crossbreed between Ammit and a Petsuchos Ra from Age of MythologyIt explains the Ammit elements, and the Petsuchos Ra gives the crocodile part a much more primary role ('hard to destroy reptile' indeed). Luckily, he didn't inherit the sunbeam laser. Unluckily, he didn't get vulnerability to being crushed through brute force.
SCP-024 is the eerily, cheery Announcer from Silent HillCompare and contrast the article on SCP-024, with the scenes of the Announcer in Silent Hill youtube videos. They're too similar to just be a coincidence.
The Foundation is set in 21st Century Warhammer 40,000 universe.The sheer number of alien artifacts and objects that can corrupt or kill humans with absolute ease is a clear sign of Chaos. The Foundation itself is the precursor to the Inquisition.
Doctor Clef is actually NyarlathotepBecause it makes as much sense as all his other origin stories.
The Archaic from Penumbra is, or is a branch of, the SCP Foundation.The immediately obvious evidence: the cheerful disregard for human life, being devoted to containing and learning, and having great influence. However, the real zinger may be found in the article for SCP-028. "Geological structure of the earth beneath Greenland, including several unknown caves and [EXPUNGED]." Penumbra takes place in the Archaic facility located beneath Greenland.
The real leader of the SCP is GLaDOSThis is what she meant when she informed Chell that she was the only one standing between "Us... and them".
G-man plays the SCP Foundation off for amusement, and to keep himself aware of potential "employees".A potentially god-like being who can warp time, space, reality, and all kinds of other stuff anywhere, anytime, for his own needs would defiantly enjoy hand-picking expert agents for his goals.
No More Heroes is set on a SCP siteNot only that, but the SCP foundation is killing two birds with one massive stone by letting reality warpers kill each other for fake ranking and using money!
The SCP Foundation is SEELE or will become SEELEAccording to what may or may not be Word of God, SEELE originally was an organization that collected religious and paranormal artifacts under various guises and fronts; upon discovering the Dead Sea Scrolls, they turned into the SEELE we all know and love. Sometime in the future, the SCP Foundation will find some very interesting SCP objects, including a set of ancient documents and two massive underground spherical constructs, each containing two similar godlike-but-inert beings, each impaled with a giant spear. Plus, just look at Dr Clef's proposal , what if the man who received the command of "PREPARE" was none other than Keel Lorentz?
The SCP Foundation is an offshoot of the Gunnerkrigg Court.The Court has been originally founded as a place to research the "etheric" - that is, the supernatural. Soon after its founding, a group within the Court decided they were unhappy with the way GC was functioning, and left the Court to create their own organization, to research the supernatural in their own way. Both the GC and the SCP Foundation seek to hide their exact beginnings. There is still a feud between the two - that's why they dislike to talk about the other's existence.
The SCP Foundation is a front for the Warehouse.Both organizations deal with Artifacts Of Doom, try to keep them out of public knowledge, and are highly secretive. The wiki is made so Warehouse agents can find out about possible Artifacts and retrieve them.
Theta Prime is Missingno.It's a missing number. It can't be contained in a PC. It causes whatever system it's being contained in to slowly breakdown and eventually become completely useless.
SCP-578 is Alma too.First form is dressed, while more elegantly than Alma, is still in a dressed. Around seven, and while can be harmed, causes strange phenomena.
The Children of the Scarlet King are Gropagas."Scarlet King" refers to the colour of the CAPTCHA Inglip uses to communicate with its followers.
055 is a pumpkinWhat pumpkin?
SCP-055 is CanadaWho?
SCP-055 is AnnHer?
SCP-055 is a Silence
The Foundation is our universe's equivalent of the Torchwood Institute.It's outside the government, beyond the police, and has seemingly infinite assets and resources at its disposal. The point of divergence is that, in our universe, the Foundation is competent at its job, is not responsible for creating most of the paranormal entities it must contain, and does not try to contain any potential difficulty by sending John Barrowman to seduce it.
The Foundation is in charge of the organization pulling the strings in The Cabin in the WoodsMajor film spoilers ahead! The Ancient Gods that demand Human Sacrifice in the film are a Keter-class SCP (the details of which have not yet been publicly released) that the Foundation has taken upon itself to deal with alongside all the other End Of The World As We Know It scenarios until a better solution can be found. In order to appease them in the proper way, the Foundation makes use of some of its "inmates" and Artifacts Of Doom to help prod things along in the correct ways. On that note, every single formulaic horror film that's come out involving a group of dumb teenagers and college students has been real and released to the public on the pretense of being fictional both to keep up The Masquerade as well as to provide some much needed funding for these procedures.
SCP-217 is Mycosynth Lattice
SCP-076-2 is not really Able, or a video game character, but a ToonSpecifically, he's the true form of Judge Doom. Think about it; both of them are immensely powerful, Axe Crazy, can shrug off all bodily injuries, spawn any assortment of weapons, and are more than happy to murder people on a grand scale For the Evulz. The problem, though, is that the Foundation is unaware of 076's toon nature and hasn't figured that all they need to do to kill him is to throw a proper mixture of benzene, acetone, and turpentine on him.
SCP-980 is a pictonian.It was separated from the rest of its kind, through a portal or something, into an alternate version of the Hetalia-universe (our Earth). It also happens to have a passive, rather than active, effect on its environment.
SCP-662/Mr. Deeds is Sebastian MichealisThey're both supernatural, hypercompetent butlers who can be called and trusted swiftly, can be sent to kill people, and do practically anything. The reason he doesn't know why he's so hypercompetent and why he's named "Mr. Deeds" instead of "Sebastian" is because after Ciel died many years ago his memory was wiped somehow. He somehow ended up confined to the bell afterward and after moving from owner to owner he ended up in the Foundation.
SCP-217 is Glistening Oil
SCP-076-2 is GutsSpecifically, he's Guts if he didn't have Casca with him. Look at any piece of SCP-076-2 fan art and you'll see that the resemblance between the two is staggering.
SCP-173 is a highly mutated Weeping AngelIt can only moves when no one is looking at it, it's really fast and murders people by snapping their necks. Somehow it lost the ability to send people to the past and, hopefully, images of it don't become more of it.
SCP-079 is CleverbotHe escaped the Foundation and found his way on to the internet where he masquerades as a AI that answers what ever you type into the search engine.
The third partner of Marshall, Carter and Dark is Mr. DarkWho ELSE?
SCP-610 is The ThingNo, not that Thing. It's a virus that causes its victims to mutate into hideous abominations.
SCP-447 is sopor slime.Sober Gamzee is that way because he ate so much of it and then came in contact with dead bodies.
SCP-363 are nickelpedesGiant centipedes that can and will kill people on sight and are afraid of light, that sounds fairly close.
SCP-500 are Senzu BeansWhy not?
SCP-711 is actually a Future Diary from Mirai NikkiThey retrieved the plans for building it from 11th, and String 17 is a DEAD END flag.
SCP-990 was predicting the birth of 231-7's "child"In an interview, he mentions an SCP who hasn't yet been born or classified; and seems to consider said SCP to be "the bad guy". 231-7's child seems like the perfect candidate.
Colress worked for the FoundationOne of the items deposited by SCP-261 (the magic vending machine) was a bag of jellybeans that caused a person's body hair to change to the color of the bean when eaten. To wit, "as a result, subjects' hair is now a flat shade of banana yellow and of sky blue".
SCP-204-1 is a StandIt protects its user (SCP-204-2) by taking on a semi-solid form with various abilities.
SCP Foundation is run by The Technocracy while GOC is run by The TraditionsPossibly...
SCP founadation have a contract with Cyberdyne industriesIt's mentioned in multiple articles that the foundtaion uses "remote units", often as security guards, and the implied use indicates they have some pretty advanced robotics. And who better to build that sort of kit than the guys who designed the Terminators?
The sharknado was an SPCExplosives will not truly solve the problem. Start punching those sharks!
At least some of the living SC Ps are Witches or Familiars, and others might be related to Magical Girls, Witches, or Incubators.
SCP-1529 is an Anzat, or something similar to one.
SCP-106 is the Unwanted House GuestThey're both really creepy looking with big creepy grins. They also both like to sneak up on and attack everyone in sight.
Amigara Fault is an SCP.Since direct crossovers can't be added to the site, it'll never get a write-up, but the story almost feels like it was written with SCP in mind. There's a mimetic hazard, parts reminiscent of a tale and, of course, a gruesome ending.
The foundation shall one day discover Rapture.Because come on, that crossover would be awesome, right?
Time Cube is an art installation of AWCY?'Are We Cool Yet?' may be working on something very big there. Let's just hope it will soon be contained. this theory, SCP-457 is in fact Hans, transformed after getting fire powers to get revenge on the two sisters, but it went horribly wrong and he went mad. SCP-630 is the result of a corrupt Peruvian official trying to get Elsa to make a superweapon for him that became too dangerous. SCP-924 is in fact an experimental prototype bodyguard that Elsa made. And SCP-1867 met her when he was human.
The world of the SCP Foundation is an alternate  dimension.We know that during The Last Great Time War, the War Doctor time-locked the war to prevent its creations from wreaking havoc and turning the rest of the universe into a living hell. This universe is one in which The Doctor died during the war and therefore never time-locked it, allowing horrors created by Time Lord and Dalek alike such as the Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degradations and the Horde of Travesties, among countless other horrors free to inflict terror beyond imagining on that timeline. Further, without The Doctor to save us, we've had to save ourselves - resulting in the dark horror and frequently restarted/destroyed nature of the SCP-verse.
The Foundation will become CerberusNear-unlimited funding? Check. Morally ambiguous experiments with little or no regard for the safety of its employees? Check. Doing all of this with the best interests of humanity in mind? Check. They might even have some Reaper tech hidden away in containment... running gags of that series is the utterly absurd array of products available due to having access to "Makers" (machines which can assemble goods from scratch using nanobots, somewhat like Star Trek replicators) and genetic engineering. It's not unknown for someone to order a box of baby seal eyeballs, or see "Powdered Irish Children" on a shelf. These makers can also have artificial intelligence and their own personalities, such as how Spider's tends to manufacture electronic drugs for itself. So it makes sense that in the Transmetropolitan universe vending machines would work in a manner similar to SCP-261. The reason that opening it up doesn't reveal any contents is that the contents don't exist until ordered; why stock a vending machine with snacks when it can create them? The various Alien Lunch items it tends to produce perfectly match the odd tastes seen in The City (especially since people can modify their own genetics to consume almost anything). And the machine's attitude (it dispensed gummies shaped like a hand Flipping the Bird which contained a lethal dose of cyanide when given a counterfeit coin) pretty accurately reflect the attitudes seen in that comic, as well as suggesting the machine has an AI.
The Foundation and/or the objects it contains is responsible for The Leftovers universeFor example there's SCP-2000, the Reset Button: For whatever reason they couldn't restore 2% of the human population (about 140 million people) but considered it an acceptable loss. Mass amnestics didn't work properly and apparently had an adverse effect on pets who witnessed the event(s). According to Word of God we'll never learn what happened to the missing people, which is just fine for the Foundation unless the new Groups of Interest (the Guilty Remnant and Holy Wayne) or the behavior of the affected pets become anomalous themselves.
