Connor Cornwall

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b30b2ced_751f_4ec0_9c8f_6b7e0afb9e87.jpeg
Voiced by: Lord Bung
An SCP with Resurrective Immortality and the main character of the series. His anomalous ability makes him an ideal stand-in for D-Class personnel when they run out or are otherwise unsuitable.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Claims that this is how he got over his mother abandoning him.
  • Alliterative Name: According to episode 2, his last name is Cornwall, meaning his name is Connor Cornwall
  • Ambiguously Bi: Courtesy of Word of Gay. To clarify, the author sees him as bisexual, but you can think whatever you like.
  • Amnesiac Hero: In episode 6 Connor, while suffering from amnesia due to a head injury, suddenly becomes a seriously skilled warrior able to take down other survivors and IKEA employee creatures with ease and flair. Though it hints that whatever is giving him his powers has taken over partially, or is at least channeling the skill from another time.
  • The Chew Toy: Or as the staff likes to call him, the "test dummy".
  • Chick Magnet: He has managed to attract the attention of at least three women he has met so far. SCP-1836 described him as handsome. Natalie appears to be in a secret relationship with him, and Stethoscope not only used a Double Entendre to flirt with him, but is clearly giving him looks of interest in her scenes.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Has been living in the Foundation's care since he was a baby, which has left him fairly blasé towards all the weirdness around him, his "containment" by the ethically dubious Foundation, and the fact that he has died many, many times.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One of his defining character traits. Most likely due to being partially Conditioned to Accept Horror and naturally acting as the straight man to the whole Foundation as a result.
  • Demonic Possession: SCP-2200 implies his powers are demonic in origin. Dr. Powers's research hints it may be correct.
    • In part 1 of "The Infinite Ikea", an amnesiac Connor frequently falls victim to berserker rages when his blood is drawn; swiftly amd ruthlessly annihilating whole tribes on occasion. He only ever seems to stop when there are no enemies left to kill and comes to with a confused look on his face, as though he had no clue what just happened.
    • The opening scene of The Infinite Ikea Part 2, as well as the cast listing, implies he's the host for something named Vulkan, and that he has far more powers than just Resurrective Immortality.
  • Doom Magnet: Tests and investigations where Connor gets involved ironically tend to result in far more casualties - SCPs included - than if the Foundation had just used normal D-personnel instead.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Does not like being reminded that he's as much an anomaly as the SCPs
  • Immortality Hurts: His Resurrective Immortality has made him the Foundation's favorite "crash test dummy" for every sort of painfully lethal expedition.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's fairly caustic (really, can you blame him?) but is a genuinely good guy.
  • The Jinx: Despite being seemingly the perfect D-class due to his Resurrective Immortality, there's a high chance that tests with him can result in massive collateral damage, staff casualties, and SCP casualties.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He forgets most of his past when he has a wooden shard of a crate lodged in his skull during Episode 6. He mostly retains his muscle memory... and remembers Mad Max.
    • Part 2 shows he has some memories, remarking that Dr. Wilson's voice is familiar (and annoying), having a dream about Dr. Fish, and recalling an experiment the Foundation did on him when Dr. Hilda brings it up.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Dr. Powers seems to have become this for him over the course of the show; something which probably doesn't bode well for either parties involved, or the Foundation itself for that matter, were she to be "moved". Especially if Connor truly has more powers than initially implied.
  • Magic Pants: Whatever he's wearing when he dies ends up regenerating with his body (his usual jumpsuit in episode one, just his body in episode 2, his pants and T-shirt in episode 4...).
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's not a bad-looking guy and has been seen naked in one episode. SCP-1836 described him as handsome in episode 4.
  • Only Sane Man: Seems to view himself as such.
  • Parental Abandonment: Was abandoned by his mother as a baby. He was also left in a car to die of exposure or starvation, over and over and over again until somebody noticed the large number of identical dead infants locked in a car.
  • Perma-Stubble: Steth even calls it "weirdly permanent chin stubble".
  • Power of the Void: The opening scene of Infinite Ikea Part 2, implied to be a memory from a previous host of the being within Connor, states that said being draws its powers from the void.
  • Resurrective Immortality: His power and one the Foundation loves to take advantage of; whenever he dies, his body flashes back into existence immediately after. This comes with the consequence of him leaving a huge amount of his own corpses behind.
  • Shirtless Scene: Strips off his clothes to relieve a full body itch in episode 2. Because of course he does.
  • Stepford Smiler: And Stepford Snarker. It's strongly implied many times, including this music video, that Connor is more affected by his living situation than he leads on.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Implied in episode 2, when he expresses happiness over an SCP offering him a chance to escape...then claims that the SCP "mind-controlled him into thinking he wanted to escape". Dr. Powers seems to think this trope is in play as a result.
  • The Stoner: He and Dr. Powers are seen smoking SCP-420-J in episode 4.
    • Threatening his weed is a good way to get him to complete a experiment.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Due to his power, he's constantly getting killed only to flash back to life immediately after.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Part-Inuit and bisexual.
  • Unfazed Everyman: His inability to die has left him numb to the horrors that he faces. subverted the few times where he thinks he genuinely might die for real.
  • Unkempt Beauty: If Dr. Powers, SCP-1360 and SCP-1836's assessments of him is to be believed, he's attractive, but not very clean.

Dr. Natalie Powers

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_p6ai5n67xv1r5ioas_540.png
Voiced by: GemoDawn
A Foundation psychologist who befriends Connor.
  • Adorkable: Her crush on Connor immediately veers into this in the Special.
  • Affably Evil: She's polite and courteous, but she's still an SCP Foundation psychologist.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: It's either implied, falls into this, or Nightmare Fetishist. Apparently, SCP-031, a sluglike creature that can make itself look like your greatest sexual desire, does not change its appearance around her.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: There are implications that she's not all there—SCP-031 doesn't change its appearance when she's around it. Her smoking SCP-420-J might have something to do with this.
  • Covert Pervert: As shown at the end of the sixth episode, her room has a number of pinups, pages from softcore porn rags, and posters from SCP-themed hentai games.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Slightly more deadpan than snarky though.
  • Digging Yourself Deeper: In the Special, she tries to cover her embarrassment by declaring a containment breach. All her hastily-improvised excuse does is make her crush on Connor obvious to everyone in the facility.
  • Dumb Blonde: Is a bit of The Ditz when it comes to Connor and doing her job.
  • Erudite Stoner: A psychologist who occasionally likes to get high.
    • "Only Us" reveals that the Foundation gave her regular access to SCP-420-J (a.k.a. the best weed ever) in order to keep her calm after she freaked out and declared a containment breach when Connor revealed he had heard her talking about how good looking he was and that she wanted to ask him out.
  • Ship Tease: With Connor. They appear to be official in episode 4.

Dr. Wilson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/confinement_ep3__the_robot_1_33_screenshot_1.png
"Sorry, Connor, I don't make the rules. Damn bureaucrats do."
Voiced by: Nerd City
A Foundation scientist who doesn't befriend Connor. He's an asshole.
  • All There in the Script: Only General Marcus and Doctor Fish seems to know his name is Wilson, as the credits just list him as "the mean doctor".
  • Defector from Decadence: Briefly allies with the Autocratic State of Soulsberg, killing one of the guards from the top of the wall. Ultimately, nothing comes of this.
    (Falling safe decapitates guard)
    Dr. Wilson: "Eat my taint! Bureaucracy is dead, and we killed it! Now the people have control!"
    Gen. Marcus: "Doctor Wilson, get the fuck down here!"
    Dr. Wilson: (beat) "Okay."
  • Hypocrite: Rants to Connor about bureaucratic asswipes that lay back and drink alcohol at three in the afternoon when he keeps some champagne in his office.
  • It's All About Me: Only cares if Connor comes back from another dimension so long as he has something for him.
  • Jerkass: His defining character trait.
  • Never My Fault: It's either everyone's glorified crash-test dummy or those fucking bureaucrats.
  • #1 Dime: Sent Connor with SCP-093 to retrieve his favorite clipboard, tossing the paperwork over his shoulder as they reunited with a Single Tear.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: His condolences for sending Connor through another dimension quickly devolves into how he couldn't get a team of military professionals to do it instead.

General Marcus

SCP-174 "Ventriloquist's Dummy" and Dr. Marlowe

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/174_6.jpg
Voiced by: Mark English
An SCP bound to a marine biologist studying SCP-1836 who acts like he is Dr. Marlowe. He's Connor's supervisor during his deployment to 1836's iceberg.
  • Affably Evil: He's very much possessing Dr. Marlowe, but he's not actively malicious and is actually helping the Foundation.
  • And I Must Scream: The real Dr. Marlowe actually tries to break free early in their first appearance, only to get hit in the stomach for his troubles.
  • Benevolent Boss: He's rather cordial to Connor, and even shows signs of sympathy over the loss of SCP-1836.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: The Foundation can't fire or kill Marlowe since he's the best marine biologist in North America and they need his expertise, even if it's through the filter of SCP-174.
  • Demonic Dummy: He's a ventriloquist dummy that possesses people, though he's not as pure evil as most examples.

Dr. Hilda Becker

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/confinement_ep5__the_swordsman_9_43_screenshot_6.png
"Connor, I'm going to be straight with you. That was fucked up."
Voiced by: GhxstCult
A new researcher supervising Connor's encounter with the SCP-2200 anomalies.
  • Black Boss Lady: Is the brains behind Connor's infiltration on the Autocratic State of Soulberg.
  • Black and Nerdy: Goddamn does she love her documents.
  • The Comically Serious: A lot of the humor from her revolves around her saying utterly hilarious lines in the most stoic manner possible.
    Hilda: (dead serious) There's nothing fun about toppling regimes. Not anymore.
  • Married to the Job: Connor rudely remarks why he thinks she's single, reasoning that it's because she always makes things weird and is so paranoid.
  • Naïve Newcomer: After she's realized the mortality of the Foundation's line of work, Conner quickly asks if she's new around here.
    Hilda: "Maybe people dying on a regular basis is just part of the job. But I'd be lying if I said that wasn't a depressing thought."
    Connor: (beat) "Are you new here?"
    Hilda: "Yes, actually."
  • Only Sane Man: Is one of the more rational of researchers Connor has been assigned under.
  • The Stoic: Exercises a professional attitude towards her job, which is Justified as she is a new hire.

Dr. Stavros

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scp_confinement_special_only_us_5_56_screenshot.png
Voiced by: Lord Bung
Connor's previous psychologist who has since returned from his ensnarement in the Night Terror Dimension.
  • Consummate Professional: The first thing he does after thanking Natalie and Connor for their role in his escape is schedule a new therapy session to pick up where they left off prior to being ensnared in the nightmare dimension. This guy is impressively dedicated to his job.
  • Cephalothorax: Hasn't been left with much of a torso.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: His body has been significantly altered by his time in the nightmare dimension, with him losing most of his torso, and gaining more eyes, arms, and legs as well as the ability to levitate. He doesn't seem bothered by these changes and gets around accomplishing his tasks with little difficulty.
  • Leitmotif: Whenever he appears, his eyes dart around with each strum of a guitar.
  • Russian Guy Suffers Most: Was imprisoned in a realm known as the Night Terror Dimension.
  • Rescued from the Underworld: Due to the sheer sexual tension between Connor and Natalie.
  • The Shrink: He was Connor's before getting sucked into the Night Terror Dimension.

O5 Council

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/o5.JPG
The leadership of the Foundation. Appears to be loosely based on the ones from the O5 dossier.
  • Cowboy: O5-6 goes for the glamorous version of this aesthetic.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: O5-3, being the liason for the Ethics Committee. The rest of the council are generally annoyed at his ethical complaints.
  • LOL69: They all say "Nice" when O5-1 reads a note from Site 69.
  • No Name Given: Par for the course, their only names are their numbers, O5-1-through-13. Subverted with O5-1, who's referred to as Graham once.
  • Pet the Dog: O5-1 agreed to fund O5-3's project to provide SCPs with therapy. Immediately subverted when he realizes that he was acting uncharacteristically nice and votes to defund it again.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Downplayed example. When O5-3 brings up the Ethics Committee's concerns about how gung-ho the Foundation is about killing Connor, O5-12 tries to use the Ethics Committee's stance on D-class against them, since killing Connor doesn't actually hurt as many people as the use of D-class does. -3 responds that immensely traumatizing a single kid by killing him thousands of times isn't all that much better.
  • Undeathly Pallor: While no one in the series has a particularily healthy skincolor, O5-1 takes it to the extreme. If he's actually the Dead Man from the dossier, he's technically dead.

    SCPs 

SCP-082: "Fernand" the Cannibal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/082_0.jpg
Voiced by: Lord Bung
The first SCP we see Connor interact with in the series.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Debatable. SCP-082's name is actually "Fernand", not "Ferdinand". While it could just be Connor misreading his name, his name is also spelt Ferdinand in the episode description.
  • Affably Evil: He's polite to Connor through and through, only being irritated once he realizes that the D-Class is there to ask him questions for the foundation at which point he kills him. Once he realizes Connor has Resurrective Immortality, he even fondly refers to him as an SCP and claims that he belongs at the foundation with the rest before gleefully murdering him over and over without consequence.
  • Ax-Crazy: Once he realized that Connor respawns after dying, he started killing him for fun to the point of spawn camping.

SCP-2800: Cactusman

SCP-1846: Maize Angel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/confinement_ep2__the_singing_forest_0_32_screenshot.png
Voiced by: Eman Gamer
A "shepard of the shuck" who's all about corn.
  • Ambiguous Syntax: He's a corn farmer who farms corn.
  • Good Ol' Boy: A kindly-mannered Farm Boy who sounds like he just came straight from the Corn Belt.
  • Green Thumb: Both metaphorically and literally.
    "See, uh... what people don't understand really about corn is that you don't just, uhh... grow corn, you grow WITH corn."
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Seems to be pretty friendly aside from his ungodly obsession with corn.
  • Plant Person: His Non-Human Head is an ear of corn, and a plethora of husk leaves can be seen sprouting from his neck and hands.
  • Self-Applied Nickname: Says he's a "shepard of the shuck" as people like to call him, a title SCP-007 is quick to debate him on.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Corn.

SCP-1360: PSHUD #31 | SCP-2306-1: Revenant AI | Ian Steele

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1360.png
Voiced by: Lord Bung
The third SCP focused on in the series, SCP-1360 comes into focus when it offers up information on Anderson Robotics in exchange for certain things...
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original article, SCP-1360 is desperate to get back to Anderson Robotics who have abandoned him. Here, it's an escapee who has more sinister leanings.
  • Body Backup Drive: After the destruction of his PSHUD #31 body and subsequently regaining his Past-Life Memories, Ian's consciousness is implanted into a surrogate body by Dr. Ludvig.
  • Composite Character: With SCP-2306-1, as revealed by the ending.
  • Death of Personality: As is company protocol, he had his memories wiped from his time at Anderson Robotics when he was sold. He eventually regains the memories from his old life as Ian Steele.
  • Despair Event Horizon: It hits it once Mr. Anderson contacts it through it's own body and makes it clear that it was never free. Then Anderson remotely detonates a bomb in its chest.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Dr. Ludwig does a bit of Brain Uploading, giving Ian a new human body to return to his family in.
  • Killer Robot: It's rather vicious when it comes to its fight with Connor, at one point even hanging him by his own entrails.
  • Grand Theft Me: One of the conditions it presents to trade for the information is to be allowed to essentially brain-jack Connor. Once it becomes clear that the Foundation isn't going to do such a thing, it tries to do so by force.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being uploaded to a computer system and allowed to view his memories unhindered, Ian becomes apologetic towards Connor for the whole "tried to murder you and steal your body" thing.
  • Immortality Seeker: Arguable. SCP-1360 claims he wants to suppress Connor's consciousness for this reason. He seems to have mistaken the rumors of Connor as having Nigh-Invulnerability instead of Resurrective Immortality.
  • Mommy Issues: Natalie hypothesizes so on her clipboard about Ian.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Episode 7 provides the surname "Steele". This is a change from the original SCP-2306 article, which implies that Ian had a presumably Asian family name starting with a 'J'.
  • Never Going Back to Prison: When Mr. Anderson faces him with the ultimatum to surrender or be destroyed, 1360 chooses to Face Death with Dignity, giving his silence for an answer.
  • Robo Speak: His voice is largely monotone, fluctuating in pitch and drawl through the clauses of his sentences. He speaks normally when given a human body.
  • Smug Snake: He believes himself to be more deserving of Connor's power because he had the skills to escape Anderson Robotics. It later turns out that he was never truly free.
  • Walking Spoiler: His consciousness survives the explosion and is put into a surrogate human body.

SCP-1836: The Girl in the Iceberg | Sanna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1836.jpg
Voiced by: GemoDawn
An SCP that Connor is sent to investigate due to his quarter-Inuit descent supposedly protecting him from her wrath.
  • Abusive Parent: Her dad. Doesn't get more abusive than cutting your daughter's fingers off. If her husband's spirit is to be believed, he wants to make amends in the afterlife.
  • An Ice Person: Her main form of defense is manipulating the ice of her lair to drop victims into the water where the instances of SCP-1836-1 lurk.
  • Heroic Spirit: She's survived for thousands of years on pure spite and will alone. However, she's at the end of her rope when Connor meets her.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Connor. It's sadly short lived since she passes on soon after.
  • Mistaken for Racist: The Foundation jumps to the conclusion that since the only survivors of SCP-1836 were of Inuit descent, then that must mean that Connor can approach her without fear because he's part-Inuit. He soon learns this is not the case when she and multiple instances of SCP-1836-1 try to kill him. Sanna later explains that she only attacked fishing boats that failed to ask "permission" to hunt in her territory and that the racial link of the survivors was coincidental.
  • Wolfpack Boss: She's not really a threat on her own, being a fingerless old Inuit woman. The real danger comes from SCP-1836-1, her horde of cetaceans that lurk beneath the Iceberg and will tear apart anyone who falls into their waters.

SCP-2200-1: The Blade that Takes Souls

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2200_1_2.png
Voiced by: EastsideShowSCP
The driving force behind SCP-2200. He has some... issues with Connor.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The episode takes a turn for the serious once he shows up.
  • Knight Templar: He was apparently forged to protect humanity from the forces of Hell and believes Connor's immortality to either be the work of a Demon or proof that Connor's very soul is a product of the Devil and tries to annihilate him.
  • Large Ham: His one comedic quality is that he doesn't just chew the scenery, he devours it.
  • Ominous Pipe Organ: His sole appearance is backed by this.
  • Uncertain Doom: It's not clear if the shadowy force that saved Connor simply forced 2200-1 to jump to a new wielder or destroyed him outright.

SCP-2200-2: Lou Francis Patterson, The Swordsman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lou_8.png
"While you pondered and studied a means of escape, I studied the blade!"
Voiced by: TheVolgun
A balding, chubby 27 year old nerd and the current instance of SCP-2200-2.
  • A God Am I: The way he refers to Soulberg as his "Eternal Kingdom", "Paradise" and "Destiny" along with his using the Sword's advice to appear omnipotent make him seem like this.
  • Berserk Button: The thing that finally gets him to snap? Connor stating that his "paradise" would just be anime girls.
  • Cold Ham: He almost never raises his voice above the even tone he keeps it at, and still chews the scenery like a pro.
  • The Comically Serious: A chunk of his lines are meant to parody things an Internet Tough Guy or a Chuunibyou would say, but he delivers them dead serious.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: You'd expect an overweight nerd with a sword would be putting on airs to make himself look tough, but actually turn out to be pushover. In the case of Lou, you'd be wrong.
  • Gonk: He's not terrible looking, but his silver skin and odd facial expressions make him bizarre to look at.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: A common trait among instances of SCP-2200-2, though he's rather successful at holding it back until Connor slams his Berserk Button.
  • Immortality Seeker: Another trait shared between instances of 2200-2 is a fear of death.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Regularly listens to the sword, doing as it wishes.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice seems to be based off Jeffery Combs.
  • Killed Off for Real: While SCP-2200-1's fate is ambiguous, he's unambiguously killed by the shadowy force.

SCP-2200-3: Soulberg

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2200_3.png
Voiced by: GemoDawn, Stealthy Zoroark, Lord Bung
A town inhabited by the victims of SCP-2200-2 killed with SCP-2200-1. They're pretty cool about it, but recently "seceded" from the Foundation to form their own autocratic micro-state.
  • Ax-Crazy: Behind their seemingly peaceful façade, they're a bunch of violent maniacs, which is made obvious by their massacre of the Foundation guards.
  • Complete Immortality: They're absolutely unkillable so long as they stay within a certain distance of Soulberg, and they know it.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Played for Laughs. They change their town's name to "The Autocratic State of Soulsberg" and not one of them ever notices that they can now be referred to by the acronym "A.S.S."
  • Golem: Of a sort. They're the souls of people killed by SCP-2200-2 in bodies of silver.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: They are very easily provoked and quickly become violent and psychotic.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: They give up the whole "autocratic state" thing once they start getting bombarded with Connor's Soulless Shells.
  • Theme Naming: Some of the named ones are given names that contain components of "Silver", the two pictured being Sylvester and Sylvia. Except Bobby.

SCP-2967-1: Gilbert

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eea0cbb7_cc3e_406c_9b8e_4281dfe828a8.jpeg
A sapient psychic octopus Connor made friends with as a child.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: The SCP-2967-1s described in the SCP don't seem to have much in the way of personality, aside from being extremely dependent on and/or anxiously attached to their "mother." They display little interest in talking to humans. Gilbert, on the other hand, is quite friendly, and doesn't seem to mind being separated from the rest of his family. (Possibly because his "brothers" bully him.)
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Neither SCP-2967 or the SCP-2967-1s were psychic in the original SCP, requiring a magnetic slate within their tank to communicate with researchers via writing.
  • Ambiguous Ending: We're told that only one out of the nine "brothers" survived after their escape from containment. Connor apparently chooses to believe the lone survivor was his friend.
  • Arch-Enemy: As in the original SCP, crows.
  • Big Brother Bully: Gets this from his siblings, who steal his food. Connor sneaks him extra to help make up the difference.
  • Leitmotif: Gilbert's Theme by Ivory Rasmus

SCP-2967: Gilbert's "Mom"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_2_9.png
The parent of the SCP-2967-1s. Really doesn't like Connor. At all.

SCP-1879: Anomalous Salesman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_79.png
Voiced by: punkduck007
An upbeat salesman with an assortment of dangerous and supernatural wares.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While not a good person, being perfectly willing to kill people and use underhanded methods and threats to make a sale, the original version wouldn't stick around to mock a victim or insult them for trusting him. As well, the original was actually established as not wanting to do the job anymore, hoping to get promoted to something else, while this version is quite happy to mess with people.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: The original SCP can only appear at interior doors, whereas the one here appears at a front door. He also couldn't shapeshift, and never took a form that didn't appear to be entirely human. The one here also implies itself to be a dark abomination from the far reaches of space who does this because he can, where the original was established as being part of a sales organization, with deadlines to meet and the prospect of being promoted. As well, the original would only be trying to sell a single item to a person, and didn't sell anomalous items.
  • The Cameo: His wares are other SCPs, including SCP-119, SCP-683, SCP-1269, SCP-354, SCP-207, SCP-978, SCP-513 and SCP-3662.
  • Creepy Long Fingers: When he picks up the microwave to finish off Annie, his hand has morphed into a more sallow-skinned monstrous hand with elongated digits. It's not made clear if that's part of his true form or if he just turned into something more frightening in his rage.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He has a cheery musical number and always speaks in a friendly door-to-door salesman voice. He also casually dismembers people and keeps up the same friendly mannerisms and musical inclinations as he mocks them as they bleed out on the floor.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: When he begins his pitch, you can briefly see an eye on the end on his tongue as he talks.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He is very clearly not human despite his appearance.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His whole thing is tricking people into "buying" something from him and then mutilating them for his "payment". In her dying moments, Annie kicks his eye out for calling her a "dimwitted widow".
  • Nonstandard Character Design: He doesn't resemble any of the human characters seen in the series, being far more animated with exaggerated features and skin that's quite literally white when everyone in the series has been shown with actual human skin tones. The Uncanny Valley effect is to make it immediately clear to the viewer that despite all appearances he isn't human.
  • Obviously Evil: In his own words, "never trust a man in a pitch-black suit with a smile that goes on for miles."
  • Slasher Smile: He's always smiling... when we can see him, at least. The one time he's not in a smiling mood he's hiding in the dark just offscreen.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: He mocks Annie for trusting him enough to buy something from him, but in reality she only did it because she was annoyed by his long pattering sales pitch and got something just to get him to leave.
  • Tranquil Fury: His reaction to Annie kicking out his eye is to silently pick up the microwave he sold her, jam it on her head and fry her with it.
  • Villain Song: His song "Anomalies!", while it starts off as him trying to sell Annie a bunch of supernatural items, it becomes more sinister and scathing when he takes her arm, tells her she shouldn't have trusted him and calls her dimwitted all in a jaunty, upbeat tune.
  • Voice of the Legion: As his true nature becomes clear, his voice starts to gain this quality.

A reptile that's hard to kill, and a consistent thorn in the Foundation's side.
  • April Fools: Originally posted in January on Twitter alongside several other drawings, Lord Bung's design debuts on YouTube as part of this.
  • Comically Cross-Eyed: A la chameleon.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Played for Laughs, as he just eats Connor before the latter can finish speaking to him.
  • Fat Bastard: Has bulbous and bloated body instead of being the muscular behemoth he is usually depicted as.
  • Lazy Bum: Exudes a slothful demeanor.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: The Twitter version seems pretty abashed towards of his exposed ribs, and all of the swords, arrows, and dud missile stuck in his flesh.
  • Off-Model: In the thumbnail, he looks about the same as on the site... but in the video, he looks like a huge, sleepy chameleon. Done on purpose, of course, as it was an April Fools joke.
  • Prehensile Tail: In Bung's illustration on Twitter, the tail ends in a hand with a barbed wrist.
  • Scary Teeth: The Twitter art has a set of gnarly gnashers as long as his upper arms.

Voiced by: Eddache
A very direct and open man from the Land Down Under.
  • Awesome Aussie: Certainly one of the more rugged members of the tribe, and his vocabulary is peppered with British obscenities.
  • The Big Guy: The muscleman of the tribe, he has some mild Testosterone Poisoning.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He a bit loud and rather crass, but that's just manly.
  • Catchphrase: "Teamwork!"
  • Genki Guy: Is very vocal on his enthusiasm and pride for the other tribesmen, especially a "cheeky fucka" like Thorn.
  • The Heart: "Teamwork!"
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Briefly has an episode after he follows his good buddy ol' pal's instructions and breaks his neck, calming once Connor resurrects in front of him again.
  • Nice Guy: He helps his fellow man, standing by his friends' sides. But he will voice his disgust if you're an "absolute wanker".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dyes his hair blue with yellow down the middle.

Stanley

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_4_19.png
Voiced by: Kyle Stover
A man of unknown nationality. He has been stuck in SCP-3008 for a few months, but claims to have been a no-one previously.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He's not happy with Connor's presence in SCP-3008-1 for a number of reasons, with one of the major ones being the belief that Thorn's stealing "his" girl. This escalates to outright murdering Thorn in part 2 of the Infinite Ikea.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: After being left behind on the treehouse for his 'heroics' as in, outright murdering Connor out of paranoia, he starts gloating about how he survived while the rest of his tribe jumped to their apparent deaths, only for a rival tribe member to throw a molotov from behind him.
  • Earn Your Bad Ending: The only people he cares about begin to execute him for his self-perceived heroism. They get distracted midway and jump to their apparent death, forgetting him Bound and Gagged in their abandoned home.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Seen as quite the prude by the rest of the tribe. His jealousy leads him to out right become the Black Sheep.
    Tallboy: And that's "Stanley." Don't mind him. He's a bit of a twat.
  • Hopeless Suitor: His not so inner monologue would have us believe that he and Stethoscope are in a serious relationship. From Stethoscope's expression as he narrates this and her interactions with Thorn, its clear that whatever Stanley is to her, a love interest is not it.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: He admits in his journal that he wasn't anybody important before getting trapped in 3008, and is worried that Thorn's presence is going to take away any meaning he has built for himself in the IKEA.
  • Inner Monologue: We hear his thoughts as he writes in his journal, though that's likely because his monologue isn't actually as internal as he thinks.
  • Meaningful Name: The others think he is a subversion as his name is just a normal name. However another name for the boxcutter he uses in combat is the Stanley knife. Stethoscope finally realizes where his name comes from when she comes across him holding a Stanley boxcutter to Thorn's throat.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Pushes Thorn to his death, restoring Connor's memory and leaving Steth grieving with the rest of the Canopy Tribe.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Everything about him from his insistence that he's the hero of the story to the fact that he was a generic nobody before becoming trapped in 3008 to his delusional belief that he's romantically related to Stethoscope make him seem like a parody of the generic Isekai protagonist.
  • Weapon of Choice: The Stanley Bostitch box cutter.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: He thinks of himself as the hero in some grand tale. He's actually a minor antagonist in a horror comedy. He is, however, right that Connor isn't normal.

Stethoscope

Voiced by: Emirichu
A member of the tribe who acts as the closest thing they have to a doctor, and is very interested in Thorn.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Is incredibly forward in her desire for Connor and makes zero effort to hide her intentions. This includes taking multiple pictures of him while they are in the group shower.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Has a strange, possibly anomalous, neural condition that is apparently the cause of her intense attraction to Conner that has managed to garner the attention of Dr. Stavros and Ludwig.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite her obsession with Conner and her enjoying being fused into a flesh monster, she clarifies she finds incest disturbing.
  • Has a Type: Admits that men with a Mysterious Past turns her on.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Neither Thorn or Connor are eager to reciprocate her blatant flirting.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: Connor is already established as being quite attractive to the other gender. However what really cements her interest in him is how skilled a warrior he is.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She actually enjoys being fused into a horrific flesh monster in the teleporter accident, since it's almost exactly how what she pictured she wanted with Conner.
  • Open Heart Dentistry: In "the land beyond the parking lot", she was a livestock veterinarian.
  • Yandere: Towards Connor in spite of — or as it's suggested, 'because' of — his unusual nature.
    Stethoscope: One of these days, I'll wear you down, bitch. And we'll finally be together forever, like conjoined twins... uh, but not like blood-related conjoined twins, that's incest.

  • The Voiceless: There's no lines from either of them.

  • Black Bead Eyes: If you look closely, SCP-2521 has two tiny, triangular eyes in the center of its heart-shaped face.

  • Evil Is Angular
    • The old man has a sharp jawline and broad ribcage.
    • SCP-2521? Evil? That's debatable, but you can count the number of curves in his design with your thumbs.

IKEA tribes

  • Blindfolded Vision: It's a good question on how the T'böxī warriors and the cannibals of the Aisle de Muerte can see through their helmets.
  • MacGyvering: Thrown together attire and weaponry from the store's appliances and furnishings, fitted more to more of a single theme than the Canopy Tribe.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: The aforementioned cannibals, and possibly the enigmatic knights of the Iron Guild.

  • Cannibal Tribe: Their main claim to fame.
  • Evil Has Standards: In Episode 7, Thorn cites his title as "the Terror of the Aisle de Muerte", meaning that he has come to be feared by the clan of man-eating cooks.
  • Flaming Sword: A spatula, actually.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: The "de Muerte" part. Avoided with the "Aisle" part, which should otherwise be "pasillo".
  • Number of the Beast: Aisle is numbered 667, comedically Averting this by a narrow margin.
  • Pyromaniac: They reside in the Outdoors section, where they can obsess over tiki torches and barbecue grills.
