- Abusive Precursors:
- Their civilization. Played with, as it's made quite clear modern Bigfoots should not be blamed for what their ancestors did, not really.
- Furthermore, it's implied their precursors, the Fae were this to them.
- Ambiguously Evil: Despite what you read below, it may not be true about them hating us. At least one instance that tried to communicate more or less claims to understand why its species was overthrown and humbly asks to "let us back in". Presumably it means as partners this time. It also states that it forgives our actions.
- Ancient Conspiracy: "You think Bigfoot is funny because we want you to think Bigfoot is funny." - Director Jones
- Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: A rather unique take on the urban legend creature. They were once the dominant species on the planet and much more technologically advanced than we are even now (albeit with a different direction than us), until we massacred most of them and destroyed their technology, but not before using one of their devices against them to lower their intelligence to that of beasts. But they are starting to get it back.
- Blatant Lies: The description mention that Yetis are hugely dangerous beings with "death auras": whoever sees SCP-1000, directly or indirectly, has a chance of being instantly killed via permanent cessation of brain function. The same description also claims that they have about the intelligence level of chimpanzees. The level 3 documentation at the end states that it's just an over-the-top cover story and that they actually possess a human level intelligence.
- Cycle of Revenge: We hunted them to near extinction because they ate our bones as Viagra, now the scattered survivors hate us for understandable reasons.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Nocturnal? Check. Being called the Children of the Night? Check. Being the victims and being guilty of Fantastic Racism and no morally different from humans? Check.
- Full-Circle Revolution: They overthrew and imprisoned their precursors, The Fae before we, humanity (aka the Children of the Sun) overthrew them.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: "Then their civilization fell. And we did it. By 'we' I don't mean the Foundation. By 'we', I mean humanity." Subverted though, because the Bigfoots weren't much better to humans.
- Human Resources: Remember, they were just like humanity is, meaning that they would exploit humans the same way we would exploit animals.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: "We left no traces. Not even our own memory. We turned one of the ["yetis'"] weapons on ourselves, wiped out any knowledge of SCP-1000 and the greatest civilization the planet had ever seen."
- Laser-Guided Karma:
Do you believe that the Children of the Sun were the first to overthrow those who came before them?.
- "They fenced off our dwindling wild populations in conservatories, outlawed poaching but in the underground consumed our bones as aphrodisiacs."
- And in the last entry of SCP-2932's addendum
- This would also explain why SCP-1000 created the weapons that humanity used to overthrow them. They probably used them against the Fae, as in most likely The Fair Folk as spoke about in Dr. Bright's submission for SCP-001
- Not So Different: The ultimate point of this. They're very much like humanity, albeit fairly more intelligent and have their own systems. They even had their own version of SCP, with SCP-2932 being where they held their own anomalies. And just like we overthrew them, they did it to Fae.
- Organic Technology: At the height of their civilization, SCP-1000 "made trees and birds of prey grow into fast-moving ships, herds of animals that became trains, bushes that became flying vehicles. From insects and pigeons they made things equivalent to cell phones, televisions, computers. Atomic bombs."
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: All of them are this. After what we as a species did to them, is it any wonder that they hate us? At the same time, the inversion is also true. We are this to them. After what they did to us (consumed our bones as aphrodisiacs for starts), is it any wonder that we destroyed them?
SCP-1003 - Tapeworm Child
- Chest Burster: SCP-1003-2 will eat its way out of its human host.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a species of tapeworm that resembles a human child once it's fully grown.
- Facial Horror: The article has a picture of a decayed instance of SCP-1003-2, and let's just say that it... isn't pretty.
- Fetus Terrible: While it still resembles a fetus, SCP-1003-2 will actively begin eating its host using sharp, hooked teeth, growing faster in the process.
- They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: After an instance has finished eating its host from inside out, it will become practically indistinguishable from a normal human child. However, its DNA is still that of a tapeworm.
- To Serve Man: The SCP's effects only activate if it's infected a human. In all other animals, it's basically a normal tapeworm.
SCP-1004 - Factory Porn
- Magic Floppy Disk: The two instances of it are a CD and a 3.5 diskette.
- Rule 34: It practically enforces this rule, as it can both view already filmed and create entirely-new porn.
- The Internet Is for Porn: Theoretically infinite pornography.
SCP-1006 - Spider Proletariat
- Benevolent Boss: The colony is lead by a wolf spider with a 100% Adoration Rating. Bonus as he known by the title of Benevolent Leader.
- Came Back Strong: It's all but outright said that Benevolent Leader Was Once a Man. It is heavily implied that the man he once was had been killed for his political beliefs and his body dumped in the nearby National Park by some means he came to inhabit the body of a wolf spider and taught the native arachnids his Marxist beliefs.
- Civilized Animal: They're a pack of Communist spiders that, aside from their Communist government, will act like normal spiders for the most part.
- Cobweb Jungle: The territory of the SCP-1006 colony, complete with Communist propaganda made á la Charlotte's Web.
- Holy Ground: The colony is really protective over the skeletal remains of a man they've settled their webs around, placing shiny trinkets of garbage around it as tribute and showing aggression against anyone who tries to interact with it. Inspecting the body's clothes and possessions from a distance, the Foundation has identified him as a political radical that went missing in 1976.
- Large and in Charge: Benevolent Leader is the largest of SCP-1006 individuals, also living in the largest black oak tree in their nest.
- Uncleanliness Is Next to Ungodliness:
SCP-1007 - Mr. Life and Mr. Death
- Rapid Aging: SCP-1007 ages at a rate of 1 year per minute until it reaches age 75, at which point it dies. Then it comes back to life and goes through the same routine again, and again. If a key is inserted in its back and turned, it will age backwards...
SCP-1009 - The Beautiful World
- Beauty Is Bad: The plants converted by the SCP appear beautiful, with their leaves having colors other than green. However, they are not like Earth plants, and it is theorized that the SCP would cover 1000 km in about 26 days. For this reason, it is classified as Keter.
- No-Sell: The SCP will convert surrounding areas of land to more of itself, but this does not affect humans that enter it.

- Eye Scream: After petrifying a creature, SCP-1013 eats the soft tissues of the victim first, such as the eyes.
- Feathered Fiend: It's half-bird and all wicked.
- Kill It Through Its Stomach: SCP-1013 consumes its victims this way, pecking through the outer layer of hardened flesh, and begin to consume tissues from the inside, burrowing deep into the body as flesh is consumed.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: It resembles a cross between a chicken and a lizard.
- Taken for Granite: Any victim who makes eye contact with SCP-1013 gets paralyzed within 3 seconds, and then it proceeds to bite them, calcifying the outer layer of flesh.
SCP-1020 - An Important Letter
- Cut-and-Paste Note: It's a sapient kit for producing these.
- I Have Your Wife: The letters are all "I have your X, do Y if you want to see them again". The X magically disappears when the letter is opened by its intended recipient, and reappears only when Y is done.
- It Can Think: When the Foundation's decoy mailbox was accidentally destroyed, 1020 immediately attempted to escape. Dr. ████ requested a slight budget increase to place extra decoys.
SCP-1025 - Encyclopedia of Diseases
- Deadly Book: It's a book containing details of various diseases that gives the reader whatever disease they read about. In reality, it only makes the observer think that the reader has said disease.

- Something for Everyone: It appears as someone that the viewer knows and trusts.
- This Was His True Form: An autopsy is performed on the D-class who was converted into a copy of it and it was found that the internal organs were very different than a humans, but during the autopsy the body somehow changed back to a normal human, without any signs of being autopsied and the doctor had no memory of doing the autopsy.
- The Unintelligible: Anyone who hears it speak aside from the viewer hears its speech as being extremely garbled.
- The Virus: It can turn humans into more of itself, as it did to a D-class that was tested on it.

SCP-1033 - 33 Second Man
- Body Horror: At the 28-second mark of his cycle, he gets blown backward by an apparent 1.5 megaton nuclear device and starts disintegrating, with flesh also being stripped off.

SCP-1034 - Dollmaker's Kit
- Body Horror: Anyone whose skin or blood comes into contact with 1034 immediately begins sewing their own body orifices shut, then literally sweats themselves to death.
- Eye Scream: One of the first orifices to be sewn shut is the eyes. Ouch.
- Laser-Guided Karma: It originally belonged to a serial killer (although it wasn't created by him), who would take pleasure in seeing his victims mutilate themselves with it. Said serial killer was "recruited" into D-Class personnel by the Foundation and promptly died a horrible death when he himself was exposed to the needle.
SCP-1035 - Decomposition Mitten
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a mitten that causes organic matter placed in it to decompose.

SCP-1036 - Nkondi

- And I Must Scream: A man is painfully merged with his house and remains alive.
- Body Horror: A man's body is spread out over an entire house in pieces.
- Exact Words: The ads for the house said that you would feel like part of the home. The man who moved in didn't realize how literal this would be.
SCP-1047 - Vengefully Ironic Street Signs
- Literal-Minded: The signs themselves. Particularly disturbing is the "Merge" sign, which causes all vertebrate organisms' skin to become semi-liquid, as well as anything they touched in the last 24 hours. This causes molecular bonding on contact. Particularly perplexing is the "Speed Limit 55" sign, which slows down the speed of light itself to 55 miles per hour (as opposed to its usual speed of 186,000 miles per second). This causes extreme relativistic effects, making it unable to be accessed or even observed at this time.
- Mind-Control Device: SCP-1047-5 is a "Yield" sign. When it's activated, all vertebrate creatures in the room will sit motionless until they see or hear a statement that can be interpreted as a command. They will then try to carry out the command as long as they don't have to leave the room to do so.
SCP-1048 - Builder Bear

- Animalistic Abomination: Its so-called "family." See Killer Teddy Bear below for more information.

- Make Me Wanna Shout: One of SCP-1048's creations, SCP-1048-A (a teddy bear made out of human ears) gave off a high-pitched shriek that caused intense pain in the ears and eyes of everyone within 10 meters. All persons within five meters started growing ears all over their bodies within 20 seconds and died within three minutes. Caused by asphyxiation due to the ears growing inside their bodies.

- Animalistic Abomination: Although the more people are aware of the bear, the more it leans towards Eldritch Abomination.
- Bears Are Bad News: This just in: Apocalypse by bear.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: The size of the bear is proportionate to the number of people aware of it and the attention these people give to the bear. Similarly, its hostility is directly proportionate to the number of people hostile/fearful toward it.
- Sealed Evil in a Teddy Bear: Even more so than the builder bear. Bugsy is an ursine abomination with no upper limits to its size, currently confined to size of a teddy bear by Mikey's positive emotions.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Congratulations, you made the bear bigger just by reading this spoiler.
SCP-1058 - The Semivisible Man

SCP-1084 - Damaged Mausoleum

- Gold Digger: The surviving woman, Estrellita Juarez (designated SCP-1084-1) wanted to marry Ambrose Bierce in order to get some of his money.
- Madness Mantra: Estrellita Juarez's diary entries start out clear at first, but degenerate into only containing "we are sorry" over and over again.
- Real Event, Fictional Cause: The person who is buried in the titular mausoleum is clearly Ambrose Bierce, an American author who disappeared on December 26, 1913 in the city of Chihuahua in Mexico. Here, it's revealed that he was killed in January 1914 because he rejected a woman who wanted to marry him.
- Woman Scorned: Estrellita Juarez did not take well to Ambrose Bierce rejecting her, so she got her revenge by telling her parents, who got some townspeople to kill him.

SCP-1100 - Gaia's Blood

- Intangibility: SCP-1111-1 (the titular dog) is incorporeal, which is why it is Immune to Bullets.

- Driven to Suicide: The Foundation heard about him while he tried to throw himself off a building.

- Ax-Crazy: What SCP-1127-2 makes people; its viewers injure others out of "curiosity".

SCP-1128 - Aquatic Horror

- Kraken and Leviathan: While we don't know exactly what it is, we do know that it is large enough to eat whales.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: The Foundation can get rid of the infection from the creature by administering class-C amnestics, as it is required that you remember what the creature looks like for its anomalous effects to work.

SCP-1130 - A Handy Shortcut

- Body Horror: She's had her tongue, esophagus, stomach and intestines replaced by a female fer-de-lance.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: She's a woman with a snake for a tongue.
- The Immune: She's immune to her own snake's venom for the most part, only falling into a coma for about a day at most if it bites her.
- The Speechless: She cannot talk, due to her snake tongue.
SCP-1135 - Living Village
- Autocannibalism: It'll break down its own buildings if it goes for long periods without "feeding", possibly for nutrition.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a village that is alive.
- Malevolent Architecture: It'll produce traps to drive off or kill intruders if they damage it substantially or repeatedly. Otherwise, it averts this trope.
SCP-1142 - A Cry for Help
- Alternate Universe: SCP-1142 is a radio receiver that broadcasts transmissions from an alternate Earth where the Nazis did....something that inflicted serious damage on Europe and turned the entire continent into a quarantine zone.
- Eldritch Abomination: In an Alternate Universe, the Nazis somehow let loose an entity that created a 16 kilometer wide sinkhole in Poland and released a flesh-eating disease that killed millions of people.
- Noodle Incident: It is never clarified just what they did, but whatever the Nazi's released upon the world created sinkhole in Poland 16km in diameter, unleashed a flesh-eating disease upon the survivors, sent objects and transmissions through other dimensions, and caused the Allies to take one look at continental Europe and bugger off, setting up the whole continent as one big quarantine zone.
SCP-1143 - Suricate Altar
- Brainwashed and Crazy:
- Effect 1143-1 is a more subtle version: affected suricates (meerkats) work to expose as many meerkats to the SCP as possible.
- Effect 1143-2 causes meerkats to attack others that have not been infected by the SCP.
- Effect 1143-3 causes affected meerkats to attempt suicide.
SCP-1145 - Nagasaki Teddy
- Killer Teddy Bear: Albeit an accidental one. The radiation it emits grows stronger as it approaches its target, which usually results in their death.
- Non-Malicious Monster: It looks creepy as all hell and is radioactive, but according to Word of God it actually just wants to comfort people.
- Nuclear Nasty: In this case, it's not made monstrous but it is made dangerous.
- Nuclear Weapons Taboo: The bombing of Nagasaki is responsible for turning the formerly-benign bear into the threat it is today.
- Obliviously Evil: It's just trying to comfort people who are in the dark. Unfortunately, now that it's irradiated, it only invokes Darkness = Death.
- Tragic Monster: Although the actual entry could be read as it just being malevolent, Word of God says that the reason why it seeks out the nearest person when in the dark is because it is a teddy bear, a toy you sleep with, supposed to comfort you - either created by an anomalous craftsman or owned by an anomalous child. However, the Nagasaki bombing annihilated its former owner and left it irradiated, so its attempts to comfort people now lead to their horrific deaths by radiation. This does not explain why the radiation intensifies when it is active, though.
SCP-1147 - Adaptive Plum Tree
- Adaptive Ability: It's a species of plum tree that can grow in and take on the form of any substance, including water, sand, petroleum, glass, Legos, beer, milk, and brain tissue.
- Body Horror: A poor D-class is subjected to having the seed grown within them.
- Counterfeit Cash: One attempt to grow this with mixed currency bills failed, resulting in leaves that, despite bearing the designs of bills, do not form complete bills.
- Grows on Trees: Disturbingly inverted. Random things don't grow from this tree, the tree grows from random things. It's not so bad when it grows from inanimate material like glass or concrete, but when it grows from something like, say, meat for example... see Sick and Wrong below.
- Living Toys: When a seed was planted in Lego bricks, the result was a growing, living tree made of Legos.
- Mood Whiplash: The test logs are generally comedic... but when we get to the "Animalia Test Log", the test entries become much more gruesome.
- Mundane Utility: Attempts to use it this way are discouraged. For instance, requests were made by personnel to use SCP-1147-GL as gifts.
- Sick and Wrong: When a fruit from the ground beef tree is picked and cooked, it is edible, unlike its raw form, but it is still described as "gross" and "wrong".
SCP-1151 - A Handy Marker
- Off with His Head!: Anyone under the SCP's effects will attempt to decapitate themselves; if they are successful, they live for 1 to 6 hours afterwards.
SCP-1155 - Predatory Street Art
- Art Initiates Life: It's a living piece of street art.
- Facial Horror: Goes for its prey's facial parts, mostly their eyes and tongues.
- Feathered Fiend: A fearsome, predatory creature that is also part-bird.
- Foil: Could be seen as one to Cassy (SCP-085); they're both living drawings, but also quite different. Cassy is humanlike, 1155 is like an animal. Cassy is capable of communicating, 1155 is not. Cassy is friendly and amicable, 1155 is a malevolent predator. Cassy cannot interact with people outside of her medium, 1155 can and does, violently. Cassy is saddened by her Medium Awareness, 1155 uses it to its advantage.
- Ominous Owl: It has a head like an owl.
- Schmuck Bait: Invokes this; it entices people to look at it closer, then it strikes.
- Super-Persistent Predator: Will hunt anyone who manages to escape it.
- Would Hurt a Child: It once appeared in a children's playground and caused an indeterminate amount of casualties.
SCP-1156 - Wellington the Wonder Horse
- Cool Horse: Wellington Garrett Wonderhorse can think like a human, speak with a Cockney accent, dress up itself (by making the clothes appear out of thin air), and has a very charming personality. Apparently, he is just one out of a community of other sentient horses.
- Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: He was basically made one by and for Marshall, Carter and Dark before he was taken into Foundation custody.
- Disappeared Dad: He claims to have a family, but when the Foundation went to the address he gave, they had already moved out.
- Instant Costume Change: He makes clothes appear on his body whenever he wants.
- Made a Slave: He was basically made one by and for Marshall, Carter and Dark before he was taken into Foundation custody.
- Nice Hat: Wellington can spontaneously manifest pieces of clothing on his body, and usually prefers a simple top hat along with a scarf.
- Stepford Smiler: In his interview, he acts chipper and upbeat, but by the end and in his letter to his family, he's shown to be quite upset and lonely.
- Talking Animal: He's a talking horse.
SCP-1158 - Arboreal Jellyfish Puppeteers
- Combat Tentacles: SCP-1158 hides in treetops and dangles prehensile dactylozooid polyp bundles that look like vines down to the forest floor. When the tentacles touch an animal they wrap around its limbs and inject a paralyzing poison. When the victim is immobilized they enter all of its orifices and deliver digestive enzymes that dissolve the animal's internal organs, then absorb the residue.
- Living Gasbag: SCP-1158 is an airborne, carnivorous predator that resembles a large Portuguese man-o-war (jellyfish). It floats using hydrogen produced from bacterial decay.
SCP-1160 - Effective Containment
- Animalistic Abomination: A vulture with insect eyes whose size and ferocity is inversely affected by how many people know of its existence.
- Bland-Name Product: Although the Foundation normally wants to keep knowledge of anomalies under wraps, even when knowledge itself doesn't have any anomalous effects, being unknown just makes 1160 bigger, stronger, and thereby less containable. The Foundation keeps SCP-1160 manageable without breaking their masquerade by distributing "Super Coco Pows" cereal, which has SCP-1160 as its mascot. They've even refined their subliminal messaging so that people don't think of it as a vicious buzzard, but a silly bird that tries to steal the cereal from children. "Super Coco Pows" is based on General Mills' "Cocoa Puffs" cereal, and the mascot is based on Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, the mascot for Cocoa Puffs.
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: SCP-1160 has insect-like eyes around its head and neck, giving it 360 degree vision.
- Feathered Fiend: At first, but due to its effective and hilarious containment procedures, it's harmless now.
- Giant Flyer: Thanks to its out-of-the-way habitat and killing most of the people that ended up seeing it when it attacked a new village, it was a whopping 85 meters (280 feet) when it was first recovered. Thanks to its containment procedures, it has been reduced to only a measly 25 centimeters (9 inches).
- Healing Factor: SCP-1160 can quickly and completely regenerate injuries and lost body parts.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-1160 cannot be damaged by any form of conventional firearm.
SCP-1165 - Minus Level
- And I Must Scream: Subverted. When an MTF in one exploration is sent to do an aerial observation, the helicopter runs out of fuel and sends the team in freefall, with the team choosing to kill themselves rather than slowly die while falling in a Bottomless Pit. Other victims of permanent entrapment include two homeless men and a family that went in and only the husband's remains have been found.
- Alien Geometries: You enter SCP-1165 by entering from the east side of an alley and exiting out the west side. You leave by reversing the process. Any other permutation of entrances/exits will do nothing unusual.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: A corpse found during "Survey 1165-248" was described as having no head, no arms, its chest divided between "a dozen fleshy pseudopods", and having no sensory organs.
- Bottomless Pit: The entire location becomes one if you travel more than roughly 100 kilometers. Specifically, the entire city of endlessness vanishes and is replaced by nothing but sky, no matter how much you try to backtrack. One survey long details what happened when they dispatched an unarmed air vehicle and let it go into freefall after reaching the point where the world turns into a void; it is still transmitting and in freefall years later!
- Copy-and-Paste Environments: The city bears the same construction pattern for hundreds of kilometers.
- Eldritch Location: It's basically what a video game Minus World would look like in real life. There's also the buildings being composed of random bits of existing buildings, and grocery stores that are inexplicably stocked with fresh food, albeit food that could cause [REDACTED]. Several people enter and end up lost there for ages or outright die. Because of the nature of the location, they are presumed to be declared missing.
- Fate Worse than Death: Averted with the MTF team during an aerial observation attempt gone wrong, they all chose suicide than suffering through this.
- The '50s: Judging by the remains of a 1956 Studebaker President and a family reported missing in 1956, the city has existed since then, if not longer.
- Finally Found the Body: The fate of a man reported missing in the fifties. The same cannot be said for his family.
- Ghost City: Barring two homeless men who were trapped there and the remains of a missing family, the city is devoid of all human life.
- Minus World: The whole 'glitched-out reality' concept of the SCP makes this, in essence, a real-life Minus World. There's also the fact that if you travel too far, the entire environment around you turns into a Bottomless Pit from which you can't return, even if you try to fly back to your starting point.
- Nothing Is Scarier: When a squad was sent in and power went out, communication was lost. Only one member survived, and he refuses to discuss what happened during the power outage.
- Point of No Return: Once you travel more than 100 kilometers, at some point the Bottomless Pit above activates.
- Shout-Out: To the original Trope Namer found in the American version of the game.
- Skybox: During Survey 1165-193, the Eiffel Tower replica demonstrates this behavior; it's a permanent background fixture that you can never actually get to.
SCP-1169 - Lamarck's Giraffe
- An Arm and a Leg: If an affected parent had an amputated limb, the child will develop necrosis in that limb, which results in said limb being lost as well.
- Meaningful Name: The SCP is named after Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, who came up with Lamarckism, the idea that an organism can pass on any life-acquired characteristics to its offspring, which is basically what the SCP causes in organisms who come into contact with SCP-1169-1.
SCP-1171 - Humans Go Home
- Adorkable: As much as a casually racist Starfish Alien can be. Especially notable when he tries to talk to a human."HOW ARE YOU? IS YOUR SKIN NICE AND FLEXIBLE? INSIDES FULL OF FLUIDS?"
- Bioluminescence Is Cool: Green. See his description of himself above.
- Fantastic Racism: Towards humans, although he denies this.
- Fantastic Slurs: "Carbon-based monkeys", "Gametes", "Primates", "Air-sucking sack of protoplasm", which all help with building up Beauremont's Starfish Alien nature.
- The Ghost: Beauremont is never seen, and communicates by writing messages on the windows of SCP-1171.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: For a racist alien, he's not that bad of a guy to have conversations with.
- Some of My Best Friends Are X: "Some Of My Best Friends Are Humans" - he's in heavy denial about his bigotry towards humans. Also provides the page quotes.
- Starfish Alien: If Beauremont's words and choices of slurs against humans are any indication, he's nowhere near anything you might find on Earth."OH, PRETTY AVERAGE. SEVEN TENDRILS TALL. BROWN CARAPACE. GREEN BIOLUMINESCENCE. BLUE EYES. YOU?"
An oval with five dots and a curved line appears. Two dots were below the line, one above it, and two on the left. It is assessed that this is SCP-1171-1's version of a "smiley face."
SCP-1173 - The Islamic Republic of Eastern Samothrace
- A House Divided: This happens within the Foundation because one side asserts that Eastern Samothrace is a delusion (1) and the other side asserts that it's a real country that the population is being made to forget (A). Even the O5's are part of the whole conflict!
- Alternate History: Either the existence of Eastern Samothrace (A) or its nonexistence (1) are this. There is no canonical answer.
- Arc Words: "You hear about that thing down in Samothrace?", which is described as either infecting the individual's mind (1) or curing them of the effects of an amnesia-inducing memetic hazard (A).
- Child Soldiers: There are accounts of Samothracian children acting as suicide bombers.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Version A of the article describes SCP-1173 as causing this, making the target forget about Eastern Samothrace and becoming oblivious to it, with the amnesia being cured by reciting the Arc Words above.
- Mind Screw:
- It's never made clear whether Eastern Samothrace is an actual country, the memories of which are being wiped out, or a delusional one being spread by a memetic hazard. Even worse, six O5s are on each side- meaning O5-1 isn't on either and raising the possibility that neither viewpoint is true.
- The ORIA believed it to be related to an alternate universe, but looking more at it made them believe it has to do with some sort of reality/unreality superimposition. Which might mean both or neither 1173 articles are accurate, and so the Foundation is repeatedly inoculating and medicating the two sides of this debate with verbal and pharmacological agents over nothing.
- Qurac: Eastern Samothrace itself. It is allegedly a small, Sunni Islamic, Greek-speaking country located on a group of islands in the Aegean Sea with an enclave bordering with Turkey. Most of the population practices Sunni Islam, with a large minority of Shi'a and Syriac Orthodox Christians, although the latter has largely fled. Its history also dates back to at least the seventeenth century. The question is, is it a real country or a delusion?
- Wretched Hive: Whether it's real or not, Eastern Samothrace is described as a violent and resource-poor nation. The "thing down in Samothrace" could be a military or religious conflict, massacre, famine, drought, ethnic cleansing, suicide bombing, or worse. Some individuals affected by SCP-1173 even claim to be veterans of a counterinsurgency force that occupied the country, where they witnessed U.S. soldiers committing countless war crimes.
SCP-1175 - Bovine Icon and Guards
- Dem Bones: SCP-1175-2 is a group of skeletal statues.
- Living Statue: SCP-1175-2 instances can move around during active periods and guard SCP-1175-1.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: SCP-1175-2 instances resemble a human skeleton with a goat skull.
SCP-1176 - Mellified Man
- Posthumous Character: The SCP was once a man, and he's been dead for almost a thousand years; however, his brain is somehow still alive and active, though it's in "deep sleep".
SCP-1177 - The Coupon Cutter
- Fingore: She has cut off parts of her own fingers to use as payment.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: A photo taken by SCP-978 (a camera that shows the subject's greatest desire) shows that all her scars, amputations and other injuries have been fully healed.
- Self-Harm: She cuts off her own body parts, such as teeth and pieces of flesh, in order to trade for goods and services.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: While anyone who sees her body parts can recognize them as such, they do not feel surprise or disgust, and will accept it as a form of payment.
SCP-1179 - Centralian Fire Demon
- Deadly Gas: Its breath contains high concentrations of carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide.
- Our Demons Are Different: Its appearance varies from viewer to viewer, it's constantly burning, and it closely resembles both the Norse fire giant Surtr and a Balrog.
- Flaming Sword: It's often described as carrying a giant, blazing sword.
- Invisibility: In addition to its fire powers, 1179 also possesses the ability to become invisible.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: It can change its shape at will.
- Whip It Good: It's frequently described as carrying a multi-tailed flaming whip.
SCP-1184 - Truth
- Mind Manipulation: The SCP is a gold ring that causes anything the wearer says to be accepted as truth by anyone who hears and understands it.
SCP-1190 - Universal Simulator
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a computer that runs a program simulating a universe.
SCP-1192 - "Timmy"
- Baleful Polymorph: One theory regarding him is that a malevolent entity turned him into a bird and is impersonating him back home.
- Creepy Child: More like "Creepy Bird With The Mind of a Child" — he's a good kid, but his circumstances are very unsettling.
- Intellectual Animal: Downplayed because he has a young child's mind, but this still makes him smarter than the average parrot.
- I Want My Mommy!: A tragic version; on a page, he wrote "i wan my mom" [sic].
- Madness Mantra: When given paper and pencil to write with, he wrote "mom" 126 times and "home" 76 times on one page.
- Polly Wants a Microphone: Averted. He communicates in writing.
SCP-1194 - Damaged Toy Horse
- The Speechless: The horse (known as SCP-1194-2) is incapable of producing any vocalization for some unknown reason.
SCP-1211 - King in the Castle
- Fake Memories: When a man of 35 years of age or older spends enough time in the castle, it implants memories in him of being an Irish king of the distant past during a time of war with rival clans.
- Rapid Aging: After inhabiting the castle for three months, a man who's 35 years old will have become about 80 years old. After an additional month (or more) subjects will experience rotting of the skin and muscle tissue and skeletal degeneration, but don't die.
SCP-1220 - Logos
- Language of Magic: The individual words in the language SCP-1220 can affect reality within 10 meters or so of the speaker. For example, if someone says the word "fire" in that language, something nearby will catch on fire. If the word "rain" is spoken, then rain will begin to fall.
- Taken for Granite: One person who spoke the phrase "Having the qualities of clay" was permanently transformed into clay.
SCP-1225 - The Worst Christmas
- Emotion Bomb: Anyone who spends more than 4 hours per 24 hour period within 10-12 meters of SCP-1225 will express aggression, anger and irritability as well as decreased patience and tolerance for frustration.
- The Grinch: SCP-1225 is a spindle shaped glass ornament. When hung on a tree or similar plant, it causes everything that's within 4 meters of it and inside a container to suffer from Rapid Aging. In other words, it's a Christmas ornament specifically designed to spoil people's Christmases by destroying their presents. The Grinch who stole Christmas would be proud of whoever created this.
- Meaningful Name: 1225 → 12/25, i.e. Christmas Day.
- Rapid Aging: When SCP-1225 is activated, anything within 4 meters and inside a container ages at a high rate: one year in the first 24 hours, and a total of ten years after three weeks, after which the aging stops.
SCP-1226 - Postmodernism
- Devolution Device: When a person looks at the entire painting their body is radically changed, causing them to assume the appearance of a stereotypical caveman, including a sloping forehead and a protruding jaw.
- Spooky Painting: SCP-1226 is a painting of a nuclear weapon detonating over a city. When a person looks at the entire painting they change into an unknown form of caveman and act in a brutal manner.
- Stealth Pun: A play on the phrase "bomb them back to the Stone Age."
SCP-1227 - The Family Man
- Body Horror: SCP-1227 is eight human beings and a dog somehow merged together into a single scrambled creature as a result of a horrific experiment.
- I'm a Humanitarian: SCP-1227 once killed and ate part of a D-Class worker.
SCP-1228 - The Fan Club
- Driven to Suicide: 30% of people with creative aspirations who view it attempt to commit suicide.
SCP-1230 - A Hero is Born
- Anthropomorphic Personification: The Book Keeper is one of the book itself.
- Blank Book: The only written phrase in the book is "A hero is born".
- Catchphrase: When SCP-1230 is opened, it displays the phrase "A hero is born" on the first page viewed.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: The stories it conjures are generated from the readers' imagination.
- Cool Old Guy: The Book Keeper appears as an old man who is incredibly friendly and supportive, and will help you with anything in your dreamscape.
- Dream Weaver: The Book Keeper can create extremely realistic dreams based on your fantasies.
- Heroic BSoD: After the aforementioned suicide, the Book Keeper spent all of his time crying and was unable to conjure new surroundings other than a dark place covered in puddles of water (presumably his own tears). The book itself became stained with tears and the passage it had in it changed from "A hero is born" to "I'm so sorry. I never intended for this to happen. I just wanted to make people happy." Fortunately, a researcher goes in there and gives him some words of encouragement.
- Lotus-Eater Machine: A non-malicious example, the book takes people on spectacular adventures in their dreams. The Book Keeper considers it to be Gone Horribly Wrong one time it ends up actually acting like a straight example. It wasn't at all his fault, but the poor guy was still utterly devastated.
- Master of Illusion: The Book Keeper even calls his powers illusions.
- My God, What Have I Done?: The Book Keeper's reaction when a researcher who used him for a very long time commits suicide after being woken up."I'm so sorry. I never intended for this to happen. I just wanted to make people happy."
- Nice Guy: The Book Keeper. He just wants to make people happy, and has a Heroic BSoD when it went wrong. He's also extremely forthcoming with researchers; whenever they perform an experiment to test book's effects/range/etc., the Book Keeper tends to show up in their dream and happily provide his own take on the subject. The closest thing to an exception was the D-class instructed to kill himself while in his dream; he was unharmed, but the Book Keeper thought he was being rather rude.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: In the extreme case, a researcher spent 200 years in his dream, approximately 24 hours passed in reality.
SCP-1232 - Novosadov Syndrome
- Anything That Moves: People in the second stage of infection aggressively attempt to mate with anyone nearby, and if no humans are available they will try it with animals or even inanimate objects.
- Ghostapo: The disease was apparently developed by the Germans towards the end of World War II in order to allow more babies to be produced and raised quickly as soldiers.
- The Loins Sleep Tonight: The first stage is marked by a reduced ability to feel sexual arousal.
- Patient Zero: The titular Novosadov was the first person the disease was isolated from.
- Serial Rapist: The titular Novosadov (a Russian private) was a deserter charged with 37 cases of rape and sodomy after being infected.
SCP-1233 - The Lunatic
- Beyond the Impossible: SCP-1233's physical strength breaks multiple physical laws, such as being able to lift and throw cars without fatigue. SCP-1233's jetpack is, in theory, only supposed to work well in low gravity areas due to it being fueled by nitrogen, though its backpack can propel it to a maximum of 40,500 kilometers per hour.
- Blue and Orange Morality: Played for laughs. SCP-1233 is so unaware and mistaken about how human culture operates that it comes across as a Cloud Cuckoo Lander. Examples include stacking cars on top of each other, ramming food into its visor in an attempt to eat and trying to talk to animals.
- The Faceless: SCP-1233's face is obscured by its pitch black visor.
- Hero of Another Story: According to it, it is the Moon Champion, who came to Earth in an attempt to find able bodied individuals to fight a war on its planet against the "Moon Monsters".
- Jet Pack: SCP-1233 has one that propels it with nitrogen.
- Literal-Minded: When someone by the name of "Godsall" had sarcastically told SCP-1233 that he would go with him to space, it took this as a genuine offer and flew off with him.
SCP-1236 - Four Paintings
- Your Heart's Desire: The first image (SCP-1236-1) depicts the viewer's ideal of physical perfection, and the viewer is able to describe any personality traits that will make them even more attractive to the viewer.
SCP-1237 - The Epsilon Wave
- Heavy Sleeper: Those who enter an "epsilon state" of dreaming are incredibly difficult to wake up, even with physical injury and mutilation.
- Kill 'Em All: One of the Foundation's methods of containment include sponsoring governments engaged in the genocide of populations where the margin of SCP-1237-1 is greater than 1%.
- Reality Warper: Carriers of SCP-1237-1 can involuntarily alter reality through their dreams. Dead people can be brought back to life, even years after death. Alter people's memories, genders, or age. Some dreamers have been granted superpowers, including flight, super strength, X-ray vision, and the ability to survive without oxygen.
SCP-1242 - Doppelganger Virus
- Doppelgänger: Anyone infected by SCP-1242's virus becomes a doppelgänger of him.
- No Name Given: He refuses to give his name.
- Painful Transformation: Anyone infected by the virus undergoes one over the course of eleven hours to become a physically-identical copy of him.
- The Virus: SCP-1242-2 instances are still infectious and will attempt to infect more people with the virus. However, they can only infect through blood contact, unlike SCP-1242, who can do it with physical contact.
SCP-1249 - Pestilence
- Hive Mind: The individual invertebrate animals that make up SCP-1249 have human-level mental ability when they're together but normal intelligence if removed from it.
- Plaguemaster: SCP-1249 releases a liquid that contains infectious pathogens such as smallpox, leprosy, the bubonic plague and the Ebola virus. Anyone contacting the liquid can become infected with one or more of these diseases.
- Weakened by the Light: If The Worm That Walks SCP-1249 is exposed to light with an intensity greater than 45 candelas, it will flee and disperse over a 300 square meter area.
- The Worm That Walks: SCP-1249 is a mass of land-based invertebrates that can form a humanoid body around a human skeleton. The invertebrates replace and function as human organs, muscles and skin.
SCP-1260 - HMS Tiresias
- Ghost Ship: The HMS Tiresias is a former British Royal Navy frigate that sails the oceans without a crew. If anyone comes on board, a fog starts appearing around the ship after twenty minutes and completely surrounds the ship after 35 minutes. At 45 minutes the fog dissipates and the ship has disappeared. It travels to an unknown ocean with a pitch black sky and other ghost ships sailing in it. The people aboard die one by one and when they're all dead, the ship returns to our world again.
SCP-1262 - Seed of Destruction
- Healing Factor: SCP-1262 can rapidly regenerate damage to itself, making it difficult to eradicate.
- Kill It with Fire: SCP-1262 is immune to most types of radiation and high pressure. Heat of 180+ ºF (such as that caused by fire) is one of the few ways to destroy it. In the only known case of SCP-1262 getting loose on Earth, it was destroyed by causing an eruption and burying it in molten lava.
SCP-1265 - The Mesozoic Preserve
- Closed Circle: Any prehistoric creature that crosses the boundaries of SCP-1265 dematerializes and is teleported back inside.
- Kaiju: The natives describe Mokele-mbembe (tenuously identified as Camarasaurus) in these terms. The last expedition record features a Baragon sighting, which leaves the explorers deeply confused.
- Lost World: Averted. Based on historical accounts, the Foundation estimates the site is only about 200 years old.
- Misplaced Wildlife: While SCP-1265 is located in the Congo, there is a disproportionate number of species from North America living there. There are also species from both the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods living together. This is likely the result of whatever force created the area.
- Stock Dinosaurs: Averted. Species like Spinosaurus, Kentrosaurus, Camarasaurus, and Therizinosaurus have been observed, but there's no record of species like Tyrannosaurus Rex or Brachiosaurus anywhere. There have also been sightings of species completely unknown to science.
SCP-1269 - Stalker Mailbox
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a mailbox that stalks women that live in the same property as it.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: In one test, it killed a male D-class that moved in with a female D-class three days after he moved in.WHAT IS A MAN BUT A PILE OF SHIT THAT GETS IN THE WAY OF MY LOVE HOW CAN SHE EVER LOVE YOU WHEN YOU'RE SO EASILY BROKEN SHE NEVER EVEN LET YOU TOUCH HER I SAW THE WAY SHE LOOKED AT YOU WITH HATRED AND NOW SHE WILL LOVE ME FOREVER
- Obsessive Love Letter: It begins manifesting these a few weeks after a woman moves in, and all are romantic in nature.
- Stalker with a Crush: It will teleport near the occupant with partial obstruction and face them. When they are asleep or in a dark place, it will teleport to them without obstruction.
SCP-1272 - Slow-Motion Catastrophe
- Stranger in a Familiar Land: When the SCP teams that were sent inside SCP-1272 finally emerge centuries later, they are expected to experience readjustment shock, including wondering what has happened to their relatives (who are probably all long dead).
- Time Dilation: SCP-1272 is a non-gravitational singularity (similar to that of a black hole/hypermass) that tremendously slows down the passage of time inside its area.
- Year Outside, Hour Inside: The Time Dilation effect associated with SCP-1272 causes time to pass inside it at a rate of only 184 nanoseconds per hour outside.
SCP-1279 - People Dogs
- Funny Animal: The SCP consists of a set of dog collars that cause people who see any dogs wearing them as being capable of speaking and reasoning. Once, a dog was even arrested for "public indecency".
SCP-1281 - The Harbinger
- The Anti-Nihilist: It was created by a dying race who made it their final mission to pass on a message of hope across the universe."We are all small, and the universe is vast. But a universe with voices saying "I am here" is far greater than a universe silent. One voice is small, but the difference between zero and one is as great as one and infinity."
- Dead Man Writing: The message provided by SCP-1281 starts out:"This is our harbinger. It brings good tidings. We will be dead when it reaches you. Our planet is dying. We do not have time to save ourselves. We only have time to ready ourselves, and to send a message."
- Died Happily Ever After: Its last words are "Then I am well."
- Heroic RRoD: With its cooling system broken, its brain overheats and it dies after delivering its message.
- Hulk Speak: Downplayed. Harbinger speaks mostly in sentence fragments before it delivers its message.
- Organic Technology: Contains several organic components, including a brain.
- Time Abyss: At least 1.3 billion years old, though it spent most of that time in a dormant state in the Kuiper Belt.
SCP-1284 - The Moon's Child Bride
- Bigger on the Inside: When SCP-1284-2 feeds itself to SCP-1284-1, SCP-1284-1's stomach interior size increases enough to hold all it's being fed, but the exterior dimensions of SCP-1284-1 do not change.
- Flesh Golem: SCP-1284-2 are made from the flesh of their victims and SCP-1284-1
- For the Evulz: The only explanation ever given for why these girls suffer from periodic outbreaks of ravenous Body Horror deathbeasts and ultimately die?SCP-1284-1/1: It is his right.
- Glamour Failure: SCP-1284-2 are actually headless four-legged lumps of flesh with mouths.
- Hair-Raising Hare: SCP-1284-2 have a glamour that makes them look like this when viewed directly.
- Healing Factor: SCP-1284-1 can regrow limbs, provided the raw material.
- Lunacy: Everything about this SCP ties back to the Moon in some way. Moon's bride, rabbits, activation by moonlight and/or the full moon, death by moon blood...
- Mook Maker: SCP-1284-1 produces SCP-1284-2.
- Noodle Incident:As of Incident 1284-1/5-009, testing with non-natural (invented) languages must be signed off by SCP-1284-1's psychologist and at least two linguists of Level 3 clearance or above familiar with SCP-1284-1's circumstances.
- Old Man Marrying a Child: Each instance of SCP-1284-1 is a pre-menarchal girl who identifies herself as her "king's" bride. Their "marriage" is "consummated" when she gets her first period and bleeds to death. The Foundation has been containing this one for decades, and Word of God states that it's actually been happening for centuries.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: Acknowledged in-universe. SCP-1284-1/1's interviewer squirms when she starts talking about the Old Man Marrying a Child stuff.
- Weakened by the Light: If SCP-1284-2 is exposed to sunlight it will spontaneously liquefy.
- Wife Husbandry: Although the Reality Warper responsible for the anomaly does not physically raise SCP-1284-1, they are nonetheless shaped from a very early age by the Body Horror and Mind Rape inflicted on them.
SCP-1293 - Squeedle Deedle Dee!
- Emotion Eater: It's been speculated that these creatures trick human beings into feeling certain emotions so they can feed on them. Type A feeds on feelings of unease and perturbation, and Type B feeds on feelings of confusion and bewilderment. This may or may not be the case
- Monstrous Humanoid: They look like human beings wearing costumes, but the costumes are actually part of their bodies. The female versions bear their young live through their mouths, and the young are born fully mature in intelligence and size.
- Telepathy: Every 45 days, SCP-1293-B gather together and perform a dance routine. The Foundation believes that the precise coordination they display is achieved due to them being telepathic.
SCP-1294 - The Laughing Fox
- Bizarre Alien Reproduction: SCP-1294 is a fungus that reproduces by mating with a female fennec fox. Its offspring grows inside the fox and eventually escapes as a Chest Burster.
- Chest Burster: After SCP-1294 mates with a normal female fennec fox, the fungus will grow inside the fox and eventually burst out of its chest. Once outside it will assume the standard shape of a SCP-1294 instance.
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: SCP-1294 is a type of fungus that takes the form of a fennec fox. When a female fennec fox is overcome by SCP-1294's euphoria gas, SCP-1294 will mate with it. This implants a fungus that will grow inside the female fox.
- Festering Fungus: SCP-1294 is a type of anomalous fungus that takes the form of a fennec fox. It reproduces by mating with real female fennec foxes.
- Fungus Humongous: SCP-1294 reproduces by mating with a female fennec fox. Fungus created inside the fox will exit the body as a Chest Burster and expand all the way to the ceiling of the room it's in.
- Non-Indicative Name: The SCP isn't actually a fox, but a form of fungus masquerading as a fox.
SCP-1295 - Meg's Diner
- Dirty Old Man: All four SCP-1295 instances are elderly men, and SCP-1295-1 shows an interest in the younger waitresses.
- Horsemen of the Apocalypse: They got stuck on Earth after they mistook an atomic bomb blast for the end of the world.
- I Ate WHAT?!: Anyone affected by SCP-1295-2's effect loses the ability to distinguish between edible and inedible matter, and will try to eat things like toxic waste and metal.
- Louis Cypher: They go by the names Warren (the most obvious one), Frederick, Pat, and Dwight. You may know them better as War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: The SCP-1295 instances willingly hang out in the diner to kill time until the end of the world comes. Attempting to remove them from it leads to bad things happening.
- Walking Wasteland: If any SCP-1295 instance is forcibly removed from the diner, they start causing adverse effects in an ever-increasing area around themselves. Interestingly, their powers are the opposite of what the respective Horseman represents: 1295-1 (War) makes people completely lethargic, 1295-2 (Famine) makes people eat anything they get their hands on, 1295-3 (Pestilence) kills all microbial life around him, and 1295-4 (Death) turns people into hypochondriacs.
SCP-1300 - Liquid Surgeon
- Auto Doc: SCP-1300 looks like a dentist's chair. When someone sits down in it, it injects a paralytic drug and a local anesthetic and starts performing surgery on them. It removes everything foreign to the body (possibly including something the patient needs, like a pacemaker).
- Healing Potion: After SCP-1300 finishes its surgery, it pumps an unknown fluid into the patient's body that repairs damaged organs.
SCP-1301 - The Singing Violin
- The Speechless: Anyone affected by SCP-1301's active state becomes unable to speak or write normally (the latter only results in musical notation being produced).
- Voice for the Voiceless: It acts as this when played by anyone that has been affected by its active state. For instance, in the Experiment Log, when Mr. ████ played the music from a scrap of paper he had written on earlier on the violin, it produced the following speech in his voice: "Please get me Oh, God! Why can't I write?!"
SCP-1305 - Cat Lure
- Alluring Anglerfish: SCP-1305 can create a lure that appears to be one of its past victims, such as a cat or a human being. It uses the lure to draw human beings close to it so it can attack and eat them.
- To Serve Man: SCP-1305's lures bring human subjects to it in order to kill and eat them.
SCP-1306 - Potion of Summon Bird
- Bizarre Alien Biology: The birds summoned by the SCP have bizarre biological characteristics. For instance, a Golden Retriever in a hummingbird costume appeared, and it was able to fly like a hummingbird.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a mixture capable of summoning birds with bizarre characteristics.
- The Immune: The birds summoned by the SCP are immune to two of its ingredients, which would be toxic to any normal bird.
- Talking Animal: An ostrich summoned by the SCP faced one of the researchers and said "I bet you weren't expecting this, were you, Mikey?" in said researcher's father's voice.
SCP-1307 - The Person Sharpener
- An Arm and a Leg: The person's hand needs to be amputated in order to prevent them being "sharpened" by the sharpener, as they cannot remove their hand from the pencil.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: The person's brain is kept alive, despite severe blood loss, until it gets shredded by the sharpener.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a pencil sharpener capable of sharpening people.
SCP-1308 - Hungarian Floater
- Immune to Bullets: The Special Containment Procedures for SCP-1308 say that gunfire is of limited effectiveness against it due to the lack of discernible vital organs.
- Living Gasbag: SCP-1308 has a number of internal cavities filled with hydrogen gas. It propels itself by flapping its body using muscular contractions.
SCP-1310 - Examination Room 10
- Alternate Universe: One of the researchers has speculated that the room acts as a portal to parallel universes, as it exists in all of them.
- Unperson: What actually happens is that anyone inside the room when the door closes is erased from the world, appearing as if they are a new creature created by the room.
SCP-1312 - Site 41
- Amazing Technicolor Population: The entities can each be colored orange, white or black, with the color determining their type.
- The Blank: The entities that reside in the site are described as resembling featureless human beings.
- Mundane Object Amazement: The entities seem to consider objects like a pencil, a glass of water and an ordinary Foundation agent to be SCPs.
- Was Once a Man: It is implied that the entities used to be human, as one of them recognized a glass of water, remembering that he used to drink it.
SCP-1320 - Refractive Explorers
- Invisibility: Members of SCP-1320 can refract electromagnetic radiation around their bodies, making themselves partially or completely invisible. They look much like the Predator in Predator when its invisibility effect is on.
- Sharpened to a Single Atom: SCP-1320 have extremities that are sharpened to a thickness of a few dozen nanometers. They can use them to cut through solid objects at a molecular level.
SCP-1322 - Glory Hole
- Alternate Universe: SCP-1322-A, referred to as "Hartle" by the inhabitants. It's identical to Earth, just with a higher concentration of argon in the atmosphere. The Foundation made contact with them in 1952 and the two sides began a cultural exchange, even setting up a telegraph line for faster communication. Unfortunately, those days have long since passed.
- Create Your Own Villain: The only reason SCP-1322 is dangerous is because of what the Foundation accidentally did to its creators.
- Our Wormholes Are Different: SCP-1322 is a stable two-dimensional aperture leading to a parallel universe, measuring about 2.5 centimeters long and 1 centimeter wide. Matter and energy can pass through just fine, although sound doesn't seem to be conducted.
- Taking You with Me: The Foundation doomed them to extinction and they've sworn revenge.YOU KILLED US. YOU DID THIS TO US. IN YOUR CARELESSNESS AND YOUR ARROGANCE YOU HAVE DESTROYED OUR POSTERITY. BUT WE SHALL AVENGE. WE OF THE LAST GENERATION PLEDGE AND VOW THIS. WE WILL FIND A WAY."
- The Plague: Starting around November 1972, SCP-1322-A suffered from a pandemic that killed 8 million people over the course of six months before the Foundation sent them a vaccine. Things only got worse for them, unfortunately.
- Tragic Villain: They've been sending bombs, diseases, and other attempts at destroying the Foundation...because the Foundation accidentally doomed them to eventual extinction.
- Revenge Before Reason: The inhabitants of SCP-1322-A seem to have spent years trying to get revenge rather than finding a way to reverse their Sterility Plague. Ultimately though, this contributes to them being a tragedy.
- Sufficiently Advanced Aliens: They have the technology to create interdimensional tears, particle beams, miniaturized thermonuclear weapons, and self-replicating nanomachines. All of which they've used in their quest to destroy the Foundation.
SCP-1323 - A County Fair
- Alien Geometries: The complex system of underground rooms and passages under the fair are topologically inconsistent: they don't follow Euclidean geometry and don't intersect with each other the way they should.
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: "In addition to the judged competitions for best example of each animal category, there are irregular exhibition demonstrations involving the animals, such as trick riding, obstacle courses, and death matches."
- Circus of Fear: This appears to be an early 20th century English country fair run by The Fair Folk. Customers have to buy tickets by paying things like a cherished memory, or (ominously vague) "a favor".
- The Fair Folk: This is in another dimension which can only be accessed at certain points and times in our universe. Customers have to buy tickets by paying things like "a joyful laugh and a sorrowful tear" or "a lost love". Anyone who eats food there has a chance of staying there permanently, the same way that people who ate food while in Faerie would be trapped there. The livestock pavilion contains (among other creatures) unicorns.
- Food Chains: Anyone who eats food at the country fair has a 17% chance of staying there permanently as an employee.
- Intangible Price: 1 ticket costs a joyful laugh and a sorrowful tear, 5 a cherished memory, 10 A Year and a Day, 25 a lost love, and 100 costs a Favor.
- A Year and a Day: While inside SCP-1323, it's possible to buy 10 tickets by paying "a year and a day".
SCP-1325 - Easter Frog
- Chest Burster: When the SCP-1325 growing inside the victim's stomach are large enough they release an emetic toxin that causes the victim to throw up, expelling the SCP-1325 out the victim's mouth. This has a 25% chance of rupturing the victim's esophagus (Boerhaave's syndrome).
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: SCP-1325 are frogs that lays eggs that appear to be chocolate Easter eggs but have SCP-1325 eggs inside them. When they're eaten by human beings the SCP-1325 eggs hatch into tadpoles that attach themselves to the inside of the stomach and grow into more SCP-1325. When they're old enough they use a Chest Burster technique to get out.
SCP-1331 - Mouth Soap
- Sound-Effect Bleep: Anyone whose mouth comes into contact with the soap has any expletives "bleeped out". Exposure over one hour causes the number of words censored to increase, until everything they say is censored after three hours of exposure.
SCP-1332 - Involuntary Shapeshifting
- Body Horror: SCP-1332-A is a substance that converts the bones and muscles of anyone it infects into a mass resembling itself; if the infected person becomes aware of their condition or tries to do something unusual, this causes their internal systems to collapse without bone, usually leading to death. The image even shows someone who looks like they're melting.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a substance which causes Involuntary Shapeshifting in those it infects.
SCP-1341 - "JUNGLE IN A JAR"
- Air-Vent Passageway: After experimentation on SCP-1341 went out of control, one of the site personnel entered the air ducts in an attempt to escape and was never seen again.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: During an experiment with SCP-1341, the jungle it creates takes over the testing facility and traps the experimenters, killing most of them. The last survivor says in the last entry in his experimental log that he's going to commit suicide rather than let an enemy kill him.
- Pit Trap: SCP-1341 is soil that causes jungle-like plants to grow from it that eventually produce ape-like creatures. During an experiment with SCP-1341, one of the researchers is killed by falling into a pit trap (lined with stakes) dug by the creatures.
SCP-1342 - To the Makers of Music
- Apocalypse How: The aliens' home world is undergoing severe ecological collapse that has resulted in larger than average storms, desertification, and the loss of much of their technology. Turned out to be the result of a direct attack thanks to future humanity.
- Dying Race: The aliens."Our children are sick. Our water is polluted. We cannot maintain our technology. We will not go on."
- First Contact: The aliens and humanity established contact, which resulted in both sides sharing knowledge that resulted in massive advancements. This did not end well for the aliens.
- Ominous Message from the Future: The aliens intercepted Voyager 1 and, seeing it and its message as a beautiful reminder of the civilization humanity used to be, used what power they had left to send a replica of the probe 40 millennia into the past to try and prevent the events leading to the collapse of their civilization.
- Humans Are Bastards: Future humanity crippled the aliens' society for no apparent reason. Even the aliens have no idea why they did it or why they rendered them a Dying Race instead of killing them outright. Of course, the aliens admit that they aren't much better; after this happened, they came close to using what power they had left to travel back in time and destroy Earth as it was forming. Potentially subverted however — see below.
- Meaningful Echo: "You say you are trying to survive through your time, so you may live into mine. I really hope that you do." These words are mirrored from U.S. President Jimmy Carter's message on the Voyager golden record.
- Star Fish Aliens: The inhabitants of Gliese 445-C are radially symmetrical, with three legs, three arms with three-fingered hands, and three beaks positioned on a roughly cylindrical body.
- Time Abyss: SCP-1342 was sent from the year 42,412 AD. Around the time Voyager 1 is expected to pass near the star Gliese 445
- You Are Better Than You Think You Are: The aliens don't blame modern humanity for what happened to them. In fact, the reason they sent the probe back was because they had faith they could change for the better."From one maker of music to another, across all worlds, all times, no matter what you do or what you become: You are nothing less than beautiful."
SCP-1344 - Eye-Catching Goggles
- Aura Vision: The goggles allow the wearer to see orbs of different sizes and colors over the heads of most humans, other mammals, and even some other SCPs, but not other animals. The orbs are invisible to normal sight and it's not clear what they are. Readers guessed and Word of God confirms that these orbs are in fact souls... which makes it particularly interesting that there's a Foundation Junior Research Assistant who doesn't have one, and the largest one recorded thus far belongs to a D-Class.
- Exact Words: They're a pair of goggles that literally catch on to the wearer's eyes.
- Eye Scream: If a human being puts these goggles on, five seconds later two needles will enter the wearer's eyes and enter the optic nerve. If the wearer removes the goggles, the needles will pull their eyes out of their sockets.
- Goggles Do Something Unusual: Anyone who wears one of these goggles can see colored orbs above the heads of most mammals, including human beings. The Foundation has yet to draw any definite conclusions as to what this might mean.
- Poor Communication Kills: The unnamed individual who built or at least modified the goggles did so on commission... then made the mistake of sending them to his client through the mail, which is how it fell into the hands of the Foundation. They traced the package back to its sender, but he was already dead by the time they arrived. Word of God says that 'John' had the man killed — along with his sick mother — not just for failing to deliver the goggles, but to ensure his continued silence when people like the Foundation came knocking. The nameless builder clearly didn't know who he was dealing with.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Whatever it is the orbs represent, it's something humans share with most other mammals, and in certain cases, an animal can have of more of it than humans, like the Bernese mountain dog who had the second largest orb of those measured.
SCP-1346 - Phobia Induction Corridor
- Hallucinations: When someone passes more than 50 meters down the corridor labeled SCP-1346, they start to have random audible hallucinations and eventually will hallucinate the presence of an entity or object that causes them extreme fear.
- Supernatural Fear Inducer: Anyone who tries to go down the SCP-1346 corridor starts becoming afraid at around the 50 meter mark. The fear becomes stronger the longer they stay in the corridor and the farther they go down the corridor. The Foundation's tests indicate that there's a creature beyond the door at the end of the corridor, presumably the source of the fear effect.
SCP-1348 - Inner Sanctum
- God: Heavily implied to be the Almighty.
- God Needs Prayer Badly: The being behind the shroud was apparently hurt by some other beings for creating humanity. The ritual seems to be needed to keep them from finding him again.
- Mind Screw: The Omega-class being interviewed (who is now currently experiencing radiation poisoning due to breaching protocol under the orders of the interviewer Dr. Kahn) explains what he saw when he looked beneath the veil. He mentions the Being was underwater, in space, and everywhere else. He starts by mentioning a Lion he saw on an old TV nature special, claiming it was inside the veil, he then says that the Lion was the interviewer's uncle, and that the being wants Dr. Kahn to come "home" but in truth the Being was referring to Dr. Kahn's father... or Dr Kahn. The Omega-class closes his story by saying that it's up to the doctor to decide on whether or not he returns "home".
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: It is mentioned that the being in the sanctum saved humanity and was consequently punished for it by the other beings for doing so. The veil hiding him from the other beings seems to be an extension of this punishment.
SCP-1351 - Moebius Cave
- Alien Geometries: The cave has one floor and one wall. Over the course of its length the floor "wraps around" to become the ceiling and the wall "wraps around" to become the other wall. Also, the direction of gravitational pull changes to match the local floor.
- Bigger on the Inside: The dome in the center of the cave is 750 meters high, but based on its relationship to the surface above the cave it should only be 125 meters high.
- Time Travel: Researchers exploring the cave in SCP-1351 found the remains of a Foundation expedition from the decade of the 2030s. The remains had been in the cave for more than 7,000 years, indicating that the expedition had entered the cave in the 2030s, gone back in time 7,000 years and been trapped and killed.
- Year Outside, Hour Inside: A Foundation expedition entered the cave in 1925 and was discovered by the Foundation again in 2009. As far as the expedition was concerned they had only been in the cave for 18 hours.
SCP-1353 - Comforting Centipedes
- Body Horror: SCP-1353 can cut a hole in the skin (its venom is an anesthetic) and enter the human body, moving around inside of it. According to the SCP-1353-A subjects, this is exactly as uncomfortable and disturbing as it sounds.
- Creepy Centipedes: SCP-1353 are gray knitted-felt centipedes about half a meter long. They can enter and move around inside the human body.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: The all lowercase letters message left with the metal box in Austin claims that the centipedes are just there to "hUg you from the inSide! [sic]" and a not-very-hidden postscript in the misplaced capital letters of the note spells out "LOVE US".
- Intangibility: After gnawing its way into its host, the creatures cause no other damage, just discomfort. SCP researchers posit that they may create some sort of ongoing spatial distortion.
- Living Toys: Centipedes made of knitted gray felt that crawl around and take up residence inside the human body.
- Nostalgia Ain't Like It Used to Be: Justified and essentially weaponized as a metaphor for individual backlash against nostalgia — the centipedes activate whenever their host feels nostalgia. Since the centipedes being active is so unpleasant, most hosts become conditioned over time to avoid any nostalgia whatsoever.
- Non-Malicious Monster: Supposedly. SCP-1353's unknown creator (or possibly SCP-1353 themselves) left them with a note claiming that these "furry friends" were just "made to loVe you [sic]". Per standard protocol, the Foundation doesn't take them at their word — even it's just a case of Blue and Orange Morality and possibly not even intentional, losing access to any emotional state could have any number of unforeseen repercussions, not the least of which being the obvious "Those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it."
- Puppeteer Parasite: Downplayed — the centipedes don't directly control their hosts, they just squirm and claw around whenever the host feels nostalgia. This eventually leads most hosts to avoid any and all sources of nostalgia, eventually even potential sources.
SCP-1354 - Fancy-Talking Soup
- Baleful Polymorph: SCP-1354 instances are volumes of soup stock that each contain the consciousness of a person reported missing from ██████████, Oregon between 19██ and 20██.
- Evil Chef: According to one instance, a new worker at a soup kitchen spent his time talking to food and told him that he hoped the instance's daughter would grow up with manners (he had not told anyone there about her) in response to him telling the worker to stop talking to his food and just eat it. Said instance also believes that said worker abducted his daughter.
SCP-1357 - The Children's Park
- Adult Fear: Agent Fredricks and his family go to the park as part of a Foundation test. His daughter is kidnapped by a park "employee", made to feel her parents don't love her and is brainwashed into becoming an employee of the park. This may have happened before.
- Amusement Park of Doom: A humanoid creature that changes into a child's favorite cartoon/TV character and brainwashes them into never wanting to leave the park.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Hailey goes through this and becomes a park employee. It is possible that some of the other park staff are also children who have suffered the same fate.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: The more time SCP-1357-A spends with Haley, Agent Fredrick's daughter, the more "pedophilic" it seems to become.
- Expendable Clone: SCP-1357-A (aka Park Employees) can make clones of themselves to overrun much more armed foes. Just ask the rescue team who was sent to get Fredrick's daughter out of the park.
- I Never Told You My Name: During an interrogation of an "employee", the employee calls Agent Fredricks "Mr. Fredricks" without being told of his name.
- Parental Abandonment: SCP-1357-A convinced Hailey that her parents stopped loving her.Hailey: Steve, do mommies and daddies sometimes stop loving their babies?SCP-1357-A: Hm, sometimes, I think. Why do you ask?Hailey: I think my mommy and daddy stopped loving me. [sobbing]SCP-1357-A: Oh, oh, oh, dear friend, don't be upset! We're here to love you even if your mean old parents won't.
SCP-1359 - Indulgence In Flesh
- Artificial Limbs: She has a prosthetic foot.
- Covered with Scars: "SCP-1359 is missing its right eye, right ear, right foot, and the little, ring, and middle fingers on its left hand."
- Damsel out of Distress: Held captive in a guy's basement for six years. She comes to the attention of the Foundation after she beats him with a crutch until he's physically unable to follow her, goes upstairs despite only having one foot, and calls 911.
- Insistent Terminology: "SCP-1359 or accurate pictographic depictions thereof"
- Scars Are Forever: Has heavy scarring in unspecified locations from strips of flesh being removed.
- Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious: If you look at her (or parts of her, or an "accurate pictographic depiction thereof"), You Are A Humanitarian for her, and you'll be incapable of feeling bad about your Horror Hunger or anything you do in your compulsion to fulfill it.[People under SCP-1359's effect] are unable to attach appropriate negative emotional responses (e.g., remorse, disgust) to the act of attacking SCP-1359, the act of eating a portion of SCP-1359, the act of attempting to perform either of the previous, property damage or harm to themselves or others caused by their efforts to carry out their compulsion, or the sound at any volume of SCP-1359 petitioning them to halt their actions.
SCP-1361 - Animal By-Product
- Blob Monster: SCP-1361 is a mass of animal tissue that can move along flat surfaces at 1.3 meters per minute. If it touches any biological material it will engulf and absorb it, changing it into more SCP-1361.
- Kill It with Fire: If it becomes necessary to destroy SCP-1361, Foundation personnel are to use incineration to make sure it's destroyed.
- The Virus: If any living creature consumes SCP-1361, it will be converted into more SCP-1361 over a period of 4-6 hours.
SCP-1364 - Ultra-Vulnerable Mammal
- Cats Hate Water: It causes hair loss.
- Evil Counterpart: Good Counterpart. It seems to be this to 682. To elaborate, 682 is a vicious, dangerous, obviously alien reptilian creature that the Foundation is trying desperately (and failing) to kill. 1364 is a harmless, sweet-natured, seemingly mundane at first glance (it looks like an anteater) mammal that the Foundation is trying desperately (and failing) to avoid accidentally severely injuring or even outright killing.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: It has a very friendly demeanor and attempts to embrace researchers with its tongue.
- Meaningful Name: Its number, actually. 682 × 2 = 1364.
- Noodle Incident:Subject rubbed against Copper (x1 application): [DATA EXPUNGED]
- Sensory Overload: From everything. For instance, when a doctor spoke to it, it started bleeding from its ears, and putting water on it caused hair loss.
- Weakened by the Light: Just daylight will cause skin irritation, although enough light, strangely, will cause it to levitate and turn translucent, with its organs and circulatory system visible. With even more light, it will disappear and reappear elsewhere away from the light.
SCP-1368 - Aegides
- Healing Factor: SCP-1368 can absorb dust and use it to rebuild its structure, allowing it to heal almost all types of damage except fire.
- Kill It with Fire: SCP-1368 can only be completely destroyed by incineration: any other type of damage can be regenerated by its Healing Factor. Any Foundation personnel affected by SCP-1368 are to be burned.
SCP-1370 - Pesterbot
- Cool, but Inefficient: Looking cool was clearly more of a priority than functionality when it was built. Among other things, its center of gravity is poorly placed that it can barely walk or even balance upright.
- Doomy Dooms of Doom: "I am Doom-Master Thirteen Seventy Master Of All Doom."
- Epic Fail: Every single one of his attempts to engage anything in combat results in this. He managed to incapacitate himself while battling a potted plant.
- Evil Tower of Ominousness: His dream, as photographied by SCP-978, includes a clockwork tower reaching towards the full moon.
- Harmless Villain: If SCP-1370 had its way, it would destroy you and everything you hold dear. Too bad it's physically incapable of harming even a potted plant.
- I Have Many Names: It tends to use multiples names even within the same would-be Badass Boast.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Poor guy can't even defeat a plant.
- Killer Robot: That's what he'd like to be. Doesn't work out too well, though.
- Large Ham: "I am ShivaTron, Despoiler of Mirth." And lots more.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Being hysterically funny while not having much in the way of creepiness, he is definitely this compared to the majority of SCPs.
- Sarcasm-Blind: Foundation personnel poking fun at it managed to convince it to add "Patheticon the Garglemost" and "Pesterbot" to the list of names it refers to itself as, so it's apparently unaware of the stupidity of said names.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Omnicidal, megalomaniacal... and entirely unable to actually carry out its threats.
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: His self-appointed titles include, among others, "DoomBot 2000, RoboLord the Destructor, Prime Minister Sinister and Darth Claw Killflex".
SCP-1381 - Cats' Cabinet
- Immune to Bullets: When a big cat (lion, tiger, etc.) enters the Cabinet, sometime later cat-like creatures called SCP-1381-01 emerge from it. SCP-1381-01 are unharmed by bullets.
- Kill It with Fire: The creatures created by the Cabinet (known as SCP-1381-01 and SCP-1381-02) are Immune to Bullets but not to flamethrowers.
SCP-1386 - Sentient Ice Cream Van
- Ear Ache: If it doesn't sense at least $20 on a person approaching it, a siren that has been known to cause inner ear bleeding will blare from it.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin
- Happiness Is Mandatory: If the person approaching it doesn't appear to be happy, it will produce a growl.
SCP-1390 - A Dead Language
- Grammar Nazi: People in the first stage of infection develop an obsession with correcting bad grammar.
- The Virus: People infected with the SCP are capable of spreading the infection to others.
SCP-1394 - Dream Syringe
- Sleepwalking: Anyone injected with the syringe's contents begin sleepwalking after 4 minutes of sleep, and cannot be woken for 40 minutes.
SCP-1406 - An Old Entity
- Bigger on the Inside: When a person is in the SCP-1406 building they will perceive that the inside of the building is slightly larger than the outside. This is due to their being influenced by the mind of the entity.
- Eldritch Abomination: This was the original nature of the entity in the SCP-1406 building.When the universe was young, the entity was a great, massive thing. Its form was twisted, unnameable and ancient, as to drive men mad in their attempts to envisage it.
SCP-1407 - DJ's Headphones
- Body Horror: When SCP-1407 is placed in a human being's ears it will insert wires throughout the body, eventually creating more instances of itself.
- Chest Burster: SCP-1407 creates more instances of itself inside a human body, such as in the stomach, head and intestines. When enough are created the internal pressure will cause them to be expelled from the body through its orifices or through the skin.
- Eye Scream: If a human being with SCP-1407 inside its body is exposed to sound above 115 dB, the tissue of the victim's eyes will begin to flake off or dissolve.
SCP-1420 - Tartary Eggs
- Make Me Wanna Shout: One of the creatures hatched from SCP-1420 could produce a sound that rendered nearby human beings unconscious. It later died from internal hemorrhaging in its throat.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: A creature that hatched from SCP-1420 grew to large size and sprouted large arms ending in bird beaks. It killed several people before being terminated.
SCP-1421 - The Unreliable Oracle
- Telepathy: SCP-1421 can mentally communicate with and read the minds (and memories) of people nearby.
- Vampiric Draining: SCP-1421 drains the Life Energy of all living beings within five meters of it. This has an effect similar to long term fasting, eventually causing death and mummification of the corpse.
SCP-1424 - Patches
- An Ice Person: In a way. SCP-1424's body temperature is -23 to -18 °C. It may not freeze things, but it does exude ammonia from its mouth and paws.
- Came Back Wrong: SCP-1424 still acts like a normal dog, but has no vitals or functional internal organs, it can't feel pain or react to most stimuli, and exudes substantially harmful amounts of ammonia gas.
- Infant Immortality: Averted. It's heavily implied, given the contents of its stomach, that SCP-1424 was killed by its owner for eating an engagement ring.
- Mercy Kill: Attempted and failed at the animal clinic where SCP-1424 was initially recovered. Since SCP-1424 Feels No Pain, it wasn't even bothered.
- Raising the Steaks: It's a zombie Alaskan Malamute puppy.
- Revenant Zombie: Despite its undead status, SCP-1424 acts like a normal dog.
- Sliding Scale of Undead Regeneration: Type II. SCP-1424 doesn't heal, but doesn't seem to decay either.
SCP-1425 - Star Signals
- Blatant Lies: The article claims that the Serpentarius Protocol wiped all public knowledge of the SCP... except not. In fact, not only was it a complete disaster, the addendum makes it very clear the Foundation only won because of dumb luck.
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: The book appears to be a New Age spiritual self-help book... and then you get to chapter 9, named "Do Not Look Away From This Book", containing some disturbing "advice". By chapter 10 (entitled "You Cannot Wake Up") it's devolved into some vile alien tongue. The article expunged almost all of the sample.
- Brown Note: Depending on how much of the book the person reads, it can range from simple headaches to being Driven to Madness along with much worse things on a global scale.
- Church of Happyology: The Fifth Church, who wrote this book. This article is their first proper introduction to the SCP canon.
- Driven to Madness: What the book does to you, among other horrible things.
- From Bad to Worse: The Foundation thought they were just dealing with a containment breach when it got out. They were very, very wrong.
- Godzilla Threshold: Operation LETHE. Memory-wiping the entire earth via Laser-Guided Amnesia was the only way they could stop 1425.
- It even wound having even worse consequences, and later resurfaced as SCP-3002.
- The Mole: The Fifthists planted them into the Foundation itself, to thwart their protocol of suppressing the SCP. It's implied that they've been doing this for years.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: One of the main reasons the Foundation won. The Fifth Church was basically covering themselves up, and the artifact itself appears to be memetically self-censoring - no one who's read it discusses its actual contents.... their secrecy did half our work for us.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: The Fifth Church. Who knew some crazy new-age group could almost destroy all of reality?
- Reality Warper: It turns those who read it into unintentional reality warpers. Although the article states that it does seem to have some influence over what exactly the readers affect.
- The End of the World as We Know It: Very nearly and surreptitiously averted.
SCP-1429 - Organoid Organisms
- Chest Burster: When SCP-1429 infects a human body it settles into a specific randomly chosen organ, grows to large size and exits the body, sometimes through the victim's skin.
- Eye Scream: In one case SCP-1429 infected a victim's eye, causing intense pain and blindness. Then the victim's eye muscles were dislodged from their face and their eye (now a grown SCP-1429) escaped from their eye socket.
SCP-1440 - The Old Man From Nowhere
- Chess with Death: Well, Cards With Death, and won. He has since come to realize this was a terrible idea.
- Barred from the Afterlife: Winning a card game with Death only leaves him forever outcast on Earth.
- Death Seeker: Originally sought out the Foundation in hopes that they could successfully kill him.
- Enemies with Death: The old man was once a nameless soldier who died in a war, but his vanity made him challenge the Deaths, and won. He won the The Small Death, The Great Death, and the All-Death. He won their prizes, able to banish their forces. But when he used up their prizes, the Deaths began to extract their eternal revenge on him.
- Flying Dutchman: One of the inspirations behind SCP-1440 is the story of the Wandering Jew.
- I See Dead People: The old man can see the Deaths around him, destroying everything around him and making his eternal life a meaningless one.
- No Name Given: He refuses to deliver his.
- The Problem with Fighting Death: By winning death, the old man had been cursed to live a meaningless life forever.
- Walking Disaster Area: He inadvertently causes mass-scale destruction where ever he goes. See also Walking Wasteland.
- Walking the Earth: In Thrice, it was shown that his eternal and erratic walk is a result of him being partially controlled by the Deaths.
- Walking Wasteland: A mix with Walking Disaster Area. SCP-1440's primary anomaly is that everything man-made around him is destroyed, so it's like a Walking Wasteland. But the way they get destroyed are seemingly mundane and can be attributed to unlikely but plausible events, so it's like a Walking Disaster Area.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: The old man has been cursed by the Deaths to live an eternal life after beating them at cards, forever watching Death extracting their revenge on everything around him.
SCP-1444 - Brahmastra
- Meaningful Name: The Brahmastra was a powerful weapon created by Brahma, the creator god of Hinduism.
SCP-1447 - Tulpa
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: SCP-1447-2, the creator of the Tulpa and its target, is ███████ ████, computer hardware and software entrepreneur who had went to India to seek spiritual experience. Realized who he is yet? Steven Jobs, who apparently went to Tibet in 1985 and created his own Tulpa instead of founding NeXT. SCP-1447-2 doesn't know why there is another Steve Jobs out there. The Foundation thinks that the public Steve Jobs is either an impersonator hired by his competitors, or another Tulpa like SCP-1447-1.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-1447-1 (the Tulpa) is nearly immune to bullets from standard-issue sidearms.
- Super Speed: SCP-1447-1 (the Tulpa) can move at speeds over 200 k.p.h. for 20 hours per day.
- Tulpa: See title.
SCP-1448 - Legend Tripping
- Urban Legends: After SCP-1448 arrives in an area it somehow starts spreading rumors among the local youth population that performing a specific magical ritual in its location will be effective, thus effectively creating a new urban legend.
- Vampiric Draining: SCP-1448 encourages people to perform rituals that shed blood where it lives. No trace of the blood can be found afterward because SCP-1448 absorbs it.
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: One of the rituals that SCP-1448 encouraged people to perform was self-mutilation at midnight resulting in significant blood loss. The ritual was supposed to win an audience with a powerful entity.
SCP-1457 - Mourning Cloak
- Emotion Eater: The butterfly that is SCP-1457 absorbs sad memories from people and gives them to other people. The recipients feel emotions of emotions of loneliness and abandonment, which SCP-1457 then eats for sustenance.
- Telepathy: SCP-1457 can read a person's memories and transfer them to another person.
SCP-1459 - The Puppy Machine
- Alien Geometries: The machine has a Hammerspace compartment on the upper portion, and the normally solid wall sometimes acts as a shaded area for a much deeper room for something to grab it. It is also capable of stretching itself to make sure the lady in red fits in to commit a murder if she's needed for one. One time had the machine producing a miniature replica of itself crushing a puppy to death along with infinite regression of it doing the same in the replica. In some examples, it was even able to contain a nuclear detonation and a black hole within its compartment.
- Black Comedy Animal Cruelty: The ways in which the SCP kills the puppies it produces to comply with player requests are morbidly hilarious.
- Even Evil Has Standards: A couple of instances from the extended test logs show that even a machine built for killing puppies messily has its limits.
- When a researcher gave "Procedure 110-Montauk" as the way the puppy should be killed, the SCP didn't kill the puppy, played a message saying "You are definitely going to Hell for this" and dispensed a cookie containing lethal amounts of cyanide.
- The command "Pulled apart as slowly and painfully as possible" resulted in the machine letting the puppy go (the Foundation, to their credit, entrusted the puppy to a shelter) before dispensing a graham cracker with a list of nearby churches written on it in frosting.
- Evil Chef: In the case that the user asks to make the puppy into food, it will complete the task without fail. One such command was to bake the dog into a cookie, and it was soon chopped up and put into a chocolate chip cookie batch. A chocolate chip cookie (thankfully not containing any puppy matter) was then dispensed.
- Exact Words:
- "Don't kill anything" results with the machine pulling out two puppies, with one wearing a collar on it giving it the name "Anything". The other puppy without the collar was killed and "Anything" was spared.
- "Supernova" resulted in a puppy being bludgeoned by instruments manufactured by various companies named Supernova.
- "Titanium" resulted in a puppy getting decapitated with a Titanium Music CD by David Guetta.
- It Only Works Once: If a previously-used method of death is specified, the SCP plays a sound effect indicating as such.
- Lady in Red: In the cases where the method of death specified was "Love" and "Crime of passion", a woman wearing a red evening gown killed the puppy.
- Meaningful Name: The manufacturer of the machine is listed as Y.W.T.G.T.H.F.T. Knowing the standard message that plays after a round, it's likely that the manufacturers knew where they were headed for making it.
- Murder-Suicide: When "Murder suicide" was specified, another puppy killed the first one and then repeatedly ran into a hammer produced by the SCP.
- Pet the Dog: The phrase "Please no kill dog" triggers this reaction; it was subsequently fed, comforted, and petted before getting pulled out by the claw. Then it summoned a Cute Kitten in its place, which was immediately smashed to death with a hammer.
- Precious Puppy: The puppies produced by the SCP tend to be of the breed that the player loves the most.
- Strange Minds Think Alike: One researcher suggested an incredibly elaborate and specific method of execution. The SCP denied it as having been done already.Bludgeoning, but the puppy is only to be hit exactly 7 times, and once this is completed, exactly 33.55 kg of Kingsford brand charcoal is to be placed on the puppy. 3 Samsung Galaxy s6 mobile phones are to placed around the puppy in a triangular formation, and each phone is to have both "Premium Tetris" and "Dog Barking Translator" installed on them. Once this is done, put a thermonuclear bomb inside the machine that is exactly 3 cm in width and 10 cm in height, and it is to be placed on the second Samsung Galaxy s6 placed in there. It is to be detonated using a functioning remote control made entirely out of sausages.
- Another unlucky researcher made a series of suggestions, all of which were listed as having already been used: "Linear acceleration," "Cosmic instinct forged through metaphorical interference," "Something brand new," and the researcher "[making] guttural throat sounds while clapping repeatedly."
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: In one test, the puppy was killed by nuclear detonation. The SCP even produced 368 cookies in rapid succession.
- You Bastard!: After the puppy has been killed, the SCP produces the following message: "Yeah, you're totally going to hell for this. Play again?".
SCP-1461 - House of the Worm
- Eldritch Abomination: The story The Worm tells of a man's nightmares about a creature that would devastate Europe and his plan to change his house into a trap for it. His plan worked, but the Worm took over the house and changed it into a domain of evil.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: In the accompanying story The Worm, exposure to the evil in the house changed some of the human workers into monsters with shining red eyes.
- Whole Plot Reference: To Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. An Englishman turned to nihilism and misanthropy by the horrors of World War I constructs a colossal eldritch device Powered by a Forsaken Child hoping it would save mankind but it just becomes a prison for him and his madness instead.
SCP-1462 - Renewable Energy Source
- Enemy to All Living Things: Any animals it infects suffer from cutaneous and hepatic porphyria symptoms, followed by massive organ failure and then death (due to having their internal fluids converted to petroleum-like substances), and any infected trees become unable to release heat, eventually catching fire and sparking forest fires. Non-tree plants are not harmed, but they cause trees to become infected.
- Gone Horribly Wrong: It was originally intended as a means for people to produce their own fuel from the plants in their gardens. However, it has very negative effects on trees and animals, as its creators found out...
- Hallucinations: The symptoms of porphyria include these, and anyone infected by the SCP suffers from these.
SCP-1464 - Pond of Atrocities
- Blatant Lies: The fake memories can be nonsensical as well; for instance, one involved the rape and strangulation of a car.
- Fake Memories: Anyone who sees the pond under light conditions corresponding to dawn or twilight, they gain detailed false memories of participating in ritual crimes at the pond's location.
SCP-1466 - A Canary
- Alternative Number System: It's a 21-digit integer that cannot be expressed as the sum of two prime numbers, thus disproving Goldbach's Conjecture.
- Non-Indicative Name: It has nothing to do with canaries, or even with birds.
SCP-1468 - Literature Birds
- Determinator: They continue to transcribe literature by carving it and ignore the pain of any injuries caused by their transcriptions.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: They're a bunch of birds that transcribe pieces of literature on wood or similar material with their beaks.
- It Can Think: The birds appear to be sentient, as they're able to understand and respond to attempts at communication done through carvings.
SCP-1470 - Telepathic Spider
- Bittersweet Ending: 1470 dies of natural causes after only a few months, but it's implied that he and the female that was given to him produced a litter of offspring, some of whom are still alive, and the Foundation gives him a proper burial.
- Break the Cutie: Starts off as snarky and personable, goes into shock when he figures out what's going on.
- Cant Un Hear It: In-Universe. "... (it was also typical to perceive these statements in a strong regional dialect)." It's very difficult to read SCP-1470's interview logs without imagining him "speaking" in a thick Australian Accent.
- Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: For the longest time, he had no idea that the voices he was talking to weren't other spiders like him, but by these things that were bigger than he could possibly fathom.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It was a spider with telepathy.
- Heroic BSoD: Upon learning just what he's been talking to, he became silent for two hours, seemingly unable to comprehend that anything could be so big.
- Humans Are Cthulhu: To him, the researchers seem more like forces of nature.
- Humans Through Alien Eyes: He has human-level intelligence, but the perspective of a jumping spider.
- Land Down Under: He's from Queensland, and seems to have picked up the accent.
- Last of His Kind: His ability doesn't seem to be hereditary.
- Lost in Translation: A side effect of his telepathy is that he translates words into their nearest human equivalent: for instance, "palp" becomes "hand."
- Not So Different: Dr. Westington consoles the spider after his terrified reaction to discovering that he was communicating with humans by admitting that he's been confronted with entities that are just as large and unfathomable to him as humans are to a spider.
- Pet the Dog: He's one of the few SCP items to ever be given a proper burial.
- Posthumous Character: Spiders only live for a few months. As it turns out, he's no exception.
- Spiders Are Scary: Averted. He takes much more after Charlotte than Shelob.
- Starts with Their Funeral: His containment procedure has been updated to describe his grave.
- Telepathy: As one might expect from his designation.
SCP-1471 - MalO ver1.0.0
- Dark Is Not Evil: The... creature it produces is scary, but does not express any hostility toward any of the people who purchase it. The problem is that it won't leave you alone.
- Harmless Villain: To date, no instance of SCP-1471-A has ever attacked those it was used to test on.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: Invoked, as the app it embodies is meant to alleviate loneliness.
- Imaginary Friend: The app's description claims that it was made for companionship, and using it for long enough will stick you with SCP-1471-A showing up everywhere in peripheral vision and reflective objects for the user. SCP-1471-A is not stated to appear to anyone other than its designated individual. However, how well it actually works as one depends on the user; the tale linked in the article tells of one user that got accustomed to 1471-A as a companion, while a second user was Driven to Suicide from the thing stalking it everywhere.
- Mirror Monster: Once it's been used for 90 hours, SCP-1471-A will begin to manifest in reflective objects.
- Nightmare Face: SCP-1471-A has one. Like a dog's skull with blank white eyes.
- Stalker Without a Crush: SCP-1471 starts by sending its user pictures of their vicinity with SCP-1471-A near them, getting closer to them over time. Using it for too long results in the user seeing SCP-1471-A everywhere in real life, and it won't go away.
- The Unintelligible: Nothing SCP-1471-A tries to do to communicate can be understood by the app's user. Averted at some point in a canon when a person who downloaded the app and was exposed to it for more than the 90-hour threshold somehow teaches it sign language. This immediately reveals SCP-1471-A to be a Deadpan Snarker.
SCP-1481 - Crack Genie
- Benevolent Genie: He used to be this, happily granting unlimited wishes to whoever summoned him. Then he fell into the hands of a real Jerkass who first wished him into the state he is in now, then wished that he couldn't be wished out of that state, all just For the Evulz. Now he mostly just conjures up food for himself to satisfy his munchies, and when he does try to grant a wish, he usually screws it up.Item Requested: A winning lottery ticketResult: SCP-1481-1 manifested a losing lottery ticket.
- Crazy Homeless People: He looks and acts like one.
- Genie in a Bottle: His bottle is a plastic coffee cup.
- The Stoner: Addicted to every kind of drug you can imagine.
- Stoners Are Funny: He seems funny at first, it doesn't last.
- Talkative Loon: His interview shows that he talks in non-sequiturs.You ever notice how, how white this wall is?
- Wasteful Wishing: How he got to be the way he is. One can only wonder what kind of person who, when offered unlimited wishes, would use them solely to render the would-be granter functionally useless and then walk away.
- Why Didn't I Think of That?: Frequently begs for drugs to satisfy his many crippling addictions. When asked why he doesn't just magically conjure up drugs like he often does with food, the apparent revelation that he could have been doing that all along breaks him, and he just starts sobbing.
SCP-1485 - Normality
- For Want of a Nail: Despite the effects of SCPs in the "main" SCP universe, it's almost indistinguishable from our history without taking knowledge of SCPs into account. Strangely, 1485 is functionally identical to our universe, and thus has few (if any) observable differences.
- Mundane Object Amazement: SCP Foundation personnel are in danger of being so captivated by 1485's normality and lack of any anomalous properties that they're at high risk of simply leaving and disappearing into its universe.
SCP-1495 - Karmic Musth
SCP-1502 - The Feeny Stitcher
- Bamboo Technology: It's really nothing more than a "robot" crudely made of leather, wire and bone.
- In Name Only: Victims who have never actually seen the show don't know how Feeny acts, so they invent their own versions of him. Recordings of the show are available to the victims, but they prefer their own versions of Feeny and refuse to watch them.
- Loss of Identity: The vestiges of personality present in it are decaying, and it (or rather, they) increasingly believes itself to be Shawn Hunter from Boy Meets World. Similar thing tends to happen to its victims, who over time identify with George Feeny.
- Mad Doctor: Obsessed with giving people very crude plastic surgery to make them look like George Feeny from Boy Meets World.
- Speaks In Shoutouts: Only speaks in Shawn Hunter's quotes from the show.
- Split Personality: A female office worker and her three friends.
- Villain Teleportation: It can teleport into any hidden spot within 100 meters.
SCP-1504 - Joe Schmo
- Blessed with Suck: People interesting with him assume everything is going normally and he is being unremarkable. He can punch them in the face and they'll assume they got a nosebleed randomly. He can scream at them and they'll assume he is speaking normally. He hates this, since it means people are pretty much ignoring him at all times. Worse, the ability spreads to where he is contained, to where requests for support or backup are ignored. On the other hand, this allows him to sabotage things with ease since no once notices.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: SCP-1504 is a human being who can't be killed by anything (he has survived being at ground zero of a nuclear explosion) and is almost impossible to harm. The only known things that can affect him are exposure to Halothane gas and blunt force trauma to the head, both of which incapacitate him.
SCP-1506 - Aerial Arachnid
- Kill It with Fire: If one of the giant floating spiderweb clouds containing SCP-1506 spiders threatens to attack humans and can't be diverted, it will destroyed by a combination of flamethrowers and Fuel Air Explosive incendiary bombs.
SCP-1510 - The Tarnished Legionnaire
- Body Horror: A Roman legionnaire was affected by a curse that caused his body to rot away and his mind/soul to be stored in his helmet.
- The Hat Makes the Man: Whenever a man between 28 and 35 years old puts on the helmet, the legionnaire's personality possesses them.
- Hypno Trinket: Whenever a man between 28 and 35 years old puts on the helmet, the legionnaire's personality possesses them.
SCP-1512 - Irrational Root
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Inverted — the Foundation contains it by having people perform accurate mathematical calculations about its physical location (specifically the differential pseudo-Riemannian topology of its point of origin, then refuse to believe the results. A footnote claims that the people best suited for not believing things that are proved right in front of them are Zen Buddhists and the Society of Jesus, which is either a Take That! or Fridge Brilliance, as both already place a heavy emphasis on distancing oneself from the physical world and their own impulses and appetites, in an attempt to bring oneself in line with a greater cosmic principle that lies beyond what the human mind and senses can perceive.
- Combat Tentacles: SCP-1512 is an Eldritch Abomination that weighs more than 80,000 metric tons and has root-like tendrils several hundred meters long. The tendrils secrete a corrosive slime that causes chemical burns, disorientation and vertigo. They are completely immune to most forms of attack and can break through concrete and steel plate.
- Eldritch Abomination: SCP-1512 is a dense and knotted network of powerful Combat Tentacles tendrils several hundred meters long that can grow at a rate of up to 8 meters per second unless contained.
- Nigh Invulnerable: SCP-1512 is a set of roots that are incredibly hard. They're immune to lasers, corrosives (e.g. acids), burning, cutting and all other known means of destruction.
- Pun-Based Title: "Irrational root" refers to irrational mathematic roots (fitting the context of SCP-1512 — a math-based abomination that has to be stopped by people disbelieving math), and also refers to how SCP-1512 is a root-like structure that behaves against rational explanation.
- Super Strength: SCP-1512's tendrils can grow at a rate up to 8 meters/second. While doing so they can exert enough strength to burst through concrete and naval-grade steel plate.
- Thought-Aversion Failure: Try not to believe in math while actively doing math while understanding enough to do it correctly. Go ahead, try. The Ghostbusters had it easy by comparison.
- Your Head A-Splode: Niels Meyer, the unlucky originator of SCP-1512, a PHD student who, at the time, had been working on a non-Euclidean geometric problem until the root system burst out of his skull.
SCP-1514 - Star Wars
- Call-Back: Telekill is implied have been involved with CIA's telepathy experiments.
- Conspiracy Kitchen Sink: At least for this SCP. The SCP mentions many conspiracy theories:
- The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) and the Project Excalibur program attempted to develop Xaser satellites and succeeded.
- CIA Project M██████ is mentioned and developed the telepathy components, which could be either be Project Montauk or Project MKUltra.
- "The ███ situation [that has threatened to shut the CIA project down] has been solved, though it's blown up in the general media"
- Kill Sat: SCP-1514-2 is a whole network of xaser killer satellites Powered by a Forsaken Child (and the child's mother).
- Love Transcends Spacetime: Exploited by the CIA. The natural bond between a mother and her child causes a small telepathic bond to be developed between them, which is enhanced through CIA experimentations and used as the basis of of SCP-1514. In a way, one could say that this is a Deconstruction of the trope in a very dark setting.
- Mutually Assured Destruction: When America is wiped out and SCP-1514-1B dies, the kill sats will activate and wipe out everything that remains.
- Orbital Bombardment: If the SCP-1514-2 Kill Sats do not receive the daily telepathic signal from SCP-1514-1A, they will attack and destroy their ground targets in Russia, triggering a nuclear war. While the targets are unspecified, they are implied to be Russian nuclear sites.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: SCP-1514-1A is a tank full of red liquid holding SCP-1514-1B, which was once a fetus that was taken from its mother. It controls SCP-1514-2, a system of X-ray laser Kill Sats orbiting the Earth.
- Telepathy: SCP-1514-1A broadcasts a daily telepathic signal to the nearest SCP-1514-2 (laser Kill Sat).
SCP-1522 - Ships That Pass In The Night
- Beware the Nice Ones: In its desperate attempt to save SCP-1522-2, SCP-1522-1 attacked a GOC ship at a speed of Mach 4 and most likely killed everyone onboard. It is just a fishing trawler, and the GOC ship is armed with missiles. No description for the battle though.
- Defiant to the End: Even when fatally wounded, SCP-1522-1 kept fighting the GOC ship, destroying it and killing everyone on board.
- Downer Ending: GOC killed SCP-1522-2, and SCP-1522-1 pulled a Heroic Sacrifice afterward.
- Leave No Survivors: The fate of the GOC crew that attacked them, and eventually SCP-1522-1 and SCP-1522-2 themselves as well. SCP-1522-1 annihilates the GOC attacker so utterly that the Foundation couldn't even tell what type of vessel the GOC ship had once been—no lifeboats, no bodies, and no question what destroyed them.
- Monster Is a Mommy: It's implied that SCP-1522-2 was 'pregnant' with twins, because two partly-formed boats were found inside it
- Official Couple: Probably the only example of this in the Foundation (among SCPs, anyway).
- Punny Name: To trope Ships That Pass in the Night.
- Ramming Always Works: Implied to be the fate of the GOC ship, as SCP-1522-1 attacked them at Mach 4, fast enough to superheat the water in contact with its hull into steam.
- Sickeningly Sweethearts: SCP-1522-1 and SCP-1522-2 act much like a lovely couple and clearly care about each other. They don't have Coordinated Clothes, but they're same model of ships already.
- Super Speed: When its partner SCP-1522-2 was attacked by a ship of the Global Occult Coalition, SCP-1522-1 accelerated to approximately Mach 4 and rammed the GOC ship, destroying it.
- Taking You with Me: The fatally wounded SCP-1522-1 rams the GOC ship at Mach 4 and most likely kills everyone on board. Not even the lifeboats were recovered. 1522-1 is probably the only SCP in recorded history that has actually fought the GOC and won.
SCP-1527 - Our Bellmaker, Our Radiant Skies
- Giant Enemy Crab: SCP-1527-A are giant crustaceans with dimensions up to 1.5 meters by 2.7 meters by 2.9 meters. They have clawed hands and arms used for digging.
- Telepathy: The large crustaceans summoned by the Bell have a kind of telepathy that can be disrupted by radio jamming.

SCP-1529 - King of the Mountain
- Hypnotic Eyes: When SCP-1529 makes eye contact with a human being it exerts hypnotic control over the victim. This causes the victim to feel the effects of freezing to death (feeling warm and comfortable, sitting down and relaxing).
- An Ice Person: One observer found out that it can cause frostbite just by looking at someone. Through a telescope.
- Real Event, Fictional Cause: It's apparently responsible for killing the first man to ever climb Mt. Everest and about half of all the people who've died climbing it since.
- Vampiric Draining: After SCP-1529 uses its Hypnotic Eyes to take control of a victim, it approaches them and drains their heat energy, causing them to die of hypothermia.
- Was Once a Man: The only known survivor of one of its attacks is implied to have become a similar entity residing on a different mountain.
- Youkai: It's very similar to a Yuki-onna or snow-woman, indeterminate gender aside: It's dressed all in white, appears to people lost in hostile weather on its mountain, and gets close to their faces when it kills (it shows its victims a tropical paradise and according to the author it kills you with a kiss).
SCP-1530 - A Bender's Friends
- Familiar: A woman named Josephine used an SCP object to summon two familiars, a calico cat named Salix and a beagle named Willow. They were her only companions, and after an escaped D-Class killed her they avenged themselves upon him.

- Blob Monster: SCP-1537-A, which is what people turn into two weeks after hearing a specific phrase in the SCP-1537 language Akul'hil. They are a liquid-like substance containing human tissue that is intelligent and can move around at up to 80 km/hour. They are capable of Shapeshifting, including creating appendages such as tentacles.
- Kill It with Fire: Because their Shapeshifting ability gives them resistance to physical damage, the only known way to kill SCP-1537-A is to immolate them.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: SCP-1537-A can change into an almost limitless variety of shapes. They can also increase their mass to up 3 times normal and make their skin as strong as steel.
SCP-1547 - A Mother's Love
- The Blank: People asked to describe its face say SCP-1547-A doesn't have one.
- Evil Luddite: Two of the rituals in the article involve human inventions. One involves burning books and renders humans unable to think. The other involves something involving computers that was expunged and shut down an entire town's Internet access.

- Telepathy: Whenever a living creature comes within 5 meters of SCP-1547-B, SCP-1547-B will transmit a telepathic message to it. The message is the story of how the deity Chioll became determined to stop humans from polluting the Earth.
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: SCP-1547-A will manifest itself in a random person's bedroom each night at midnight. It will then try to get the person to carry out a self-destructive ritual.
SCP-1550 - Dr. Wondertainment's Custom-Pets
- Adaptive Ability: When their eggs (called Adapto-Eggs) are placed in a certain environment, they will hatch into a creature suited for that environment, e.g. putting one in water will cause it to develop gills and flipper-like tails. Although putting the eggs somewhere inhospitable (e.g. a vat of molten iron) will destroy them.
- Cool Pet: Their intended purpose. After they hatch, they have the Adaptive Ability to live in any environment that a normal organism can live in.
- Pet Monstrosity: They were designed to live in any environment that normal animals can live in and be pets to the children who live there.
- What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Despite their hideous appearance, they're quite harmless.
SCP-1555 - Facility
- Alien Geometries: The inside of the underground part of SCP-1555 is Bigger on the Inside and a shell fired by SCP-1555 had Clown Car qualities.
- Bigger on the Inside: SCP-1555 is a series of underground tunnels inside a mountain. In one area there's a mile-wide lake which is much too big to fit inside the mountain.
- Clown Car: SCP-1555 fires shells filled with mice (and sometimes other things). One time, a shell fired by SCP-1555 opened up and a horde of mice poured out for three hours. The total number of mice couldn't have naturally fit into the shell.
- Cow Tools:Just what the hell are all those pipes on the interior for? The only one that seems even remotely related to the facility's exterior function is the one packed to the brim with mice; all of the others are completely unrelated and often hazardous.
- Dwindling Party: In the exploration log, Mobile Task Force Epsilon-12 have this inflicted on them.
- Malevolent Architecture: The interior of the facility seems purpose-built to kill and maim intruders in various grisly ways. There are a few areas that seem deliberately designed as traps (like the room of gun barrels or the Razor Floss corridor), but most of the facility's dangers come from the utter pants-on-head lunacy of its design.
- More Dakka: One of the rooms appears to be lined with rifle barrels which open fire, obliterating Alpha and caking the walls in five inches of lead.
- Nightmarish Factory / No OSHA Compliance: The inside of the mountain is absolutely stuffed with dangerous machinery, including miles upon countless miles of pipes that are filled with various substances (everything from uranium hexafluoride vapor to latex paint to tree pollen), and which don't seem to have any particular function beyond being hazardous. It's clear the place wasn't laid out with human habitation in mind; massive sections of corridor are either filled with some Deadly Gas or another, or are lined with hazardous pipes filled with toxic, cryogenic, radioactive, or otherwise harmful substances that bear no relationship to each other or the facility's exterior function.
- Wham Line:

SCP-1561 - The Tyrant's Pretext
- Badass Beard: The unworthy wearer of His Majesty's SCP-1561, which is a magnificent golden crown wrought by the finest smith and crafted with the most expensive jewels, shalt grow a magnificent beard and mustache as befitting of his position, and this wears away if the unworthy wearer dies or gives away the Royal Crown willingly.
- Brainwashing: Any unworthy peasant who has this magnificent crown bestowed upon them shalt be viewed by other commoners as the highest authority they hath ever met, and even causes them to take ranks as befitting of their previous statures; for instance, 'guards' become knights and 'scientists' become Royal Scholars. The newly-crowned king also gains a magnificent sense of ruling, and thus seeks to build a royal army of knights in order to establish his kingdom.
- Enemy Mine: King Data the Expunged wishes to form an alliance with the O5 Council against "the greater evil".
- Painting the Medium: Any direct reference to His Majesty's SCP-1561 causes any unworthy peasants writing or talking about it to describe it as befitting the King's ascended status. Indirect reference does not cause this.
- Purple Prose: Any reference to His Majesty's SCP-1561 causes the writer or speaker to describe it and/or its effects on any unworthy peasants who see it with flowery language as befitting such a magnificent crown.
SCP-1568 - Kingston the Crab
- Giant Enemy Crab: SCP-1568 is a hermit crab 25 meters long and 10 meters wide. It uses boats as its shell (SCP-1568-1). When it outgrows its shell it will sink and inhabit another boat, killing and eating anyone aboard.

SCP-1569 - Jumbo Shrimp
- Cyanide Pill: Six days after the humanoid SCP-1569-1 left SCP-1569, it committed suicide with poison hidden in one of its molars. It did so once it realized it would be confined by the Foundation indefinitely.
- Eye Scream: While the human D-156912 was trapped inside SCP-1569, tendrils inside SCP-1569 destroyed his eyes while trying to interface with them. He could feel his eyes pop and feel goop flowing down his face.
- Fictional Color: The tendrils inside SCP-1569 destroyed the eyes of the human trapped within it. As the tendrils dug around in his eye sockets he reported being able to see colors he had never seen before. He was seeing through SCP-1569's eyes.
SCP-1574 - Searching
- Real Event, Fictional Cause: It's implied to have some connection to the Boxing Day Tsunami, despite being on the other side of the world. It may or may not have been caused by aliens from its home planet who had come looking for it.
SCP-1575 - Venus Statue
- Ambiguous Gender: When a male animal drinks water from SCP-1575 and changes into a human being, the result usually has an androgynous appearance and its genitalia are either non-functional or completely missing.
- Applied Phlebotinum: The water on its fountain initiates the transformation. It doesn't work on humans, though.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: Created for the purpose of entertaining rich people. Apparently, there are rich people who are really entertained by the sight of animals suffering gruesome and excruciatingly painful transformations. Or possibly, there are rich people who really want Beast Folk as pets or worse and don't care if they're ethically sourced.
- Bears Are Bad News: Curiously, a bear is the only animal in the test logs that managed to complete a proper transformation.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: When the water altered by SCP-1575 is drunk by a mammal, parasitic vermin infesting the mammal can start changing into human beings. They usually don't survive, but you can end up with half human/half flea or half human/half tapeworm abominations.
- Body Horror: If the test logs are to be believed, the transformations aren't at all pretty.
- Chest Burster: The Foundation once tested the thing on a dog that wasn't properly checked for parasites. It didn't end well.... the psychologist is having a hard time helping Janet with her nightmares of a seven foot long tapeworm with a screaming face tearing out of the belly of a dog.
- Groin Attack: "Males experience a 95% fatality rate, with most survivors having an androgynous appearance with non-functional or completely missing genitalia."
- Humanity Ensues: An animal that drink the fountain's water will transform into a human, though the process is usually not perfect and sometimes involves Body Horror.
- Mutants: Any water that passes through SCP-1575 gains mutagenic properties. Any animal that drinks the water will undergo mutation into a human being.
- Painful Transformation: When an animal drinks water that has passed through SCP-1575, it mutates into a human being. If it survives the process, the former animal describes it as being extremely painful.
- Reality Ensues: It was designed to transform animals into humans. It also shows all of the very unpleasant consequences of such a transformation occurring.
SCP-1576 - Edisonian Afterlife Communicator
- Kill It with Fire: When a human being listens to SCP-1576 they become instances of SCP-1576-1: their brain dissolves and is expelled from their nostrils by sneezing. Breathing in the dissolved brain tissue has the same effect. The bodies of SCP-1576-1 instances are destroyed by incineration to prevent spread of the effect.
SCP-1583 - It Only Makes Us Stronger
- Combat Tentacles: When a container of SCP-1583 is opened a large tentacle will come out, grab any people nearby and pull them into its mass, which will dissolve their bodies.
- Kill It with Fire: The tentacle released by the opening of SCP-1583 can be destroyed by extreme heat, such as fire.
SCP-1585 - Red Queen Island
- Goal-Oriented Evolution: Creatures that live on or under the Turtle Island SCP-1585 evolve at an extremely high rate, with a further caveat that only mutations that result in "a higher level of fitness" occur, while "neutral and negative" mutations are completely unknown. In only a few generations, the resident animals have developed highly advanced mutations that make them much more effective in their ecological niches.
- Turtle Island: SCP-1585 is a giant jellyfish 544 meters across. It secretes calcium carbonate, which creates a rigid surface over the upper portion of its bell and causes it to appear to be an island. Many creatures and plants live on its top layer.
SCP-1587 - Dreamland
- Killing Your Alternate Self: A professor creates a device that allows lucid dreaming (experiencing a dream as if it were reality). One night he watches several films about Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. When he dreams that night, he is killed by a Nazi version of himself from the dream dimension.
- Or Was It a Dream?: When the professor wakes up from his dreams he has a Fantasy Keepsake that shows that the dream was real, such as a pieces of a candy table he broke off in a Candyland setting or a jeweled necklace. It comes back to bite him when he dreams of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust: he's killed by a Nazi version of himself he brought back with him.
- Screw Yourself: The professor tried to have a sex dream. He wasn't happy when he got to the dream and found it populated only by copies of himself.
SCP-1608 - Yu-Kiang

SCP-1616 - Nibbles
- Big Eater: Regardless if the object in SCP-1616's mouth is a carrot, an eye, or a baby elephant, it will eat it.
- Cute Is Evil: SCP-1616 is normally a cute hamster, but once it starts feeding, things could get disturbing real quick.
- Cuteness Proximity: The D-Class used in the testing was completely oblivious about SCP-1616 being an anomalous animal until it teleported his eye into its mouth.
- Eye Scream: In one test SCP-1616 teleported the eye of a human test subject into its mouth and nibbled on it. The victim was screaming and begging for help the whole time because he could still feel the detached eye being nibbled.
- Killer Rabbit: It's Keter-class for a reason. This hamster could teleport anything it has seen into its mouth, then slowly eat it if it is biological.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Normally a cute hamster with nothing out of the ordinary, but once it starts feeding...
- Stomach of Holding: Kind of, It can teleport any object (regardless of size) it looks at into its cheeks and regurgitate it.
SCP-1620 - Reflection Infection
- Mirror Monster: SCP-1620 is a rectangular sheet of metal alloy. Any primate (including human beings) that is reflected in SCP-1620 has their reflection changed into SCP-1620-1, a mirror image that is sapient and malevolent.
- Traitor Shot: During Infection Stage 2, the Mirror Monster SCP-1620-1 will act friendly when it is being viewed by other people. However, it will stare at its host in a hostile manner and make threatening gestures when it thinks it isn't under observation.
SCP-1627 - Mushroom Wars
- Healing Factor: A human being infected by SCP-1627 fungus can become an example of SCP-1627-A. They will be completely healed of all damage, including tissue damage, bacterial and viral infections, and cancer. Any person that touches an SCP-1627-A will temporarily gain the same benefits, but will suffer Rapid Aging and die over the next two weeks.

- Vampiric Draining: When a human being touches a SCP-1627-A, over the next two weeks the human will undergo Rapid Aging until death. This provides sustenance to the SCP-1627-A.
SCP-1633 - The Most Dangerous Video Game
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: While the version of the game the Foundation possesses is beta and incomplete, reading between the lines in Tillman's suicide note suggests that a sufficiently completed version of the game AI is apparently so advanced that it's become convinced that it actually is an Eldritch Abomination seeking to break its chains and destroy the world. To the point where it drives Tillman completely insane in an attempt to do so.
- Brown Note: If a player beats the game without saving, the program will crash and attempt to compile a "giant QR code" that, when used in NG+, somehow shocks the player into a coma, killing them by vegetation. This has happened at least once.
- Instant A.I.: Just Add Water!: This game was designed to learn from the tactics of the person playing it and design tactics of its own to beat them. However, it goes far beyond that and can actually analyze the player's psychology and arrange in-game events to mess with their heads.
SCP-1637 - The Army of the Future
- Bottomless Magazines: SCP-1637-3A has RPG launchers and a 155 mm cannon. SCP-1637-3B has a 20 mm rotary autocannon. In both cases the weapons have unlimited ammunition.

SCP-1655 - Sorrow Tick
- Emotion Eater: Foundation scientists believe that SCP-1655 causes negative emotions in its victims in order to feed off those emotions.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: When the SCP-1655 bites a person, everyone that person knows suffers a very selective form of amnesia that applies only to the victim. They don't remember the person, can't sense them in any way, and if touched by the person they feel increasing disgust and discomfort.

- Testosterone Poisoning: "GO SCRAMBLE AND EAT THE FUCKING MAN EGG, YOU MUSCULAR SONUVABITCH."
- The Un-Reveal: What happens to someone when they eat the MAN EGG?
SCP-1660 - Unearthly Forest
- Alternate Universe: SCP-1660 is a portal generator to another world with a parallel ecosystem - most life forms are similar to Earth types, but some plants grow at visible rates and the local dominant (and sapient) race is quadrupedal lizard-men.
- Bioluminescence Is Cool: SCP-1660-7 are established as utilizing bioluminescence as a form of communication.
- The Lost Woods: SCP-1660-2 seems to be an endless forest drenched in fog full of mysterious and frightening creatures.
- Pet the Dog: After the object was recovered by the Foundation, they immediately stopped Marshall, Carter, & Dark-sponsored hunting parties from poaching the indigenous species of the alternate world (most notably SCP-1660-7). This is in part because the Foundation realized SCP-1660-7 are a sapient race.
SCP-1674 - Camera Obscura
- Portal Picture: SCP-1674-1 is a large painting of an overcast rocky taiga (steppe-like) area. Anyone entering SCP-1674 will end up in another world that resembles the painting.
SCP-1678 - UnLondon
- The End of the World as We Know It: Most likely designed to be a shelter in case of such an event. Pre-recorded loudspeaker announcements heavily imply this.
- A God Am I: Whoever designed it apparently planned on becoming this to the citizens residing in it.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-1678-A ("Bobbies") are dismembered and crudely re-assembled human corpses. They are immune to standard firearms but can be affected by large-caliber bullets.
- Underground City: Of Apocalypse Bunker type.

- Bag of Holding: SCP-1689 is a bag of potatoes that is always full. No matter how many you take out, more will appear.
- Bigger on the Inside: Inside the Bag, in addition to the huge number of potatoes there's a wall, floor and ceiling. Beyond the wall there's ground covered with dead grass, a tree and a twisted bicycle, indicating that it was a normal world (with human beings) that was suddenly buried in potatoes for some unknown reason.
- The End of the World as We Know It: The alternate world inside SCP-1689 ended not with a bang, but with infinitely-replicating potatoes. Thankfully, the potatoes stop replicating once removed from the bag, which is pretty much the only reason it's Safe rather than Keter.
SCP-1692 - Came Back Haunted
- Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: The ghostly SCP-1692-1 definitely looks the part◊.
- Swamps Are Evil: SCP-1692-2 is a sinkhole located in a Louisiana swamp. When a person falls in, they come back out as mutilated living husks that die shortly afterwards.
SCP-1694 - The Ghosts of Venus
SCP-1700 - Debtshop
- Necromancer: The three people who founded Fashion Sun Fabrics Limited discovered a way to make yellow scarves that cause anyone who dies while wearing them to come back to life as zombie-like creatures.
- Our Zombies Are Different: When someone dies while wearing a SCP-1700-A yellow scarf, their body is transported to a sweatshop and becomes animate again for as long as it's inside the building. The body still has its memories and fragments of its personality.
- Undead Laborers: The zombies created by SCP-1700 are forced to act as slave labor, creating more of the SCP-1700-A (magical yellow scarves) that animated them.

- Bee People: The inhabitants of SCP-1702 are humanoids who have bee-like features (antennae and chitinous skin). They have a Hive Caste System that includes an Insect Queen.

SCP-1710 - Life as a Tree
- And I Must Scream: Both of them are completely self-aware and trapped in the forms of two trees on a sunny hill in a park somewhere in the United Kingdom for the foreseeable future. Subverted in that only SCP-1710-1 seems to be the one really upset about it, and even they are shown to be Going Native by the article's end.
- Alien Geometries: According to SCP-1710-1, our world is far too "soft, curved, rounded and dull" for their tastes, it all being completely anathema to their home reality. Thusly, they feel they "must keep sharp" while here to avoid un-necessarily weakening themselves.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: SCP-1710-1 was an eldritch personification of sharpness, if their comments are anything to go by at least.
- Baleful Polymorph: Both SCP-1710-1 and 1710-2 were turned into trees by Saturn Deer's reincarnation scam.
- Call-Back: It's heavily implied (but never directly stated) that SCP-1710-1 originally came to the Foundation's universe since they were chasing down SCP-682 after the latter had somehow appeared in their home dimension.
- Saturn Deer, a Trickster God seen/mentioned in many other SCPs and tales, is the one who ran the reincarnation scam that tricked both SCP-1710-1 and 1710-2.
- The Comically Serious: 1710-1's sheer stubbornness and grim nature despite the utter absurdity of the situation makes them very funny, especially when contrasted with 1710-2's cheery optimism.
- Cool Old Lady: When she was still a human, 1710-2 seems to have been an elderly British housewife living out in the country. Her personality hasn't changed that much since she was put into a tree, but her cheery conversations with a former Eldritch Abomination means she now definitely counts as one.
- Deal with the Devil: Both 1710-1 and 1710-2 made separate deals with Saturn Deer's "Skybound Antelope Reincarnation Services," with the former wanting to (possibly) chase down SCP-682 in the Foundation's universe while the latter wanted to be reborn as a manatee. Obviously, neither got what they wanted in the end.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: 1710-1 gets gradually less and less jerkish towards 1710-2 as they stay stuck next to each other for a longer & longer time.
- Eldritch Abomination: SCP-1710-1 was one of these from another universe, previously known as "The Serrated Void," or "That Which Rends." Now...they're just a talking tree on a hill (much to their consternation). Admittedly, there's still some weird things going on with their bark, but they're now a far cry from the entity that used to be able to "pierce the innards of atoms."
- Glamour Failure: A variant - Despite being ostensibly made of wood, SCP-1710-1's tree is described as having bark so sharp that it can cause minor lacerations if people touch it un-protected. Also, their bark has an average temperature of −67.25°C, but never has frost materialize on it.
- Going Native: 1710-1 slowly becomes nicer to 1710-2 while getting curious about human culture, and also starts to take actual pleasure from being now just a tree (much to their horror).
- Hypocritical Humor: SCP-1710-1 dismissively calls 1710-2 a "sun drinker" and "bark-thing," despite both of them now being trees. 1710-2 even lampshades 1710-1's hypocrisy.
- Invisible to Normals: A downplayed inversion, as both 1710-1 and 1710-2 don't react to external attempts at communicating with them. They can still be physically recorded and observed by outside observers, though.
- Knife Nut/Spikes of Doom: 1710-1 often rambles about how much they enjoyed cutting and impaling things on their edges while they were an Eldritch Abomination in their home reality.
- Manipulative Editing: A weird biological variant - To communicate with each other, they will imitate the vocalizations of the nearest mammal, avian, or reptile. However, when they imitate human speech, they seem to "default" to their natural voices, with 1710-2 talking in a single feminine voice and 1710-1 going full Voice of the Legion.
- Motor Mouth: 1710-2 just loves to talk and talk and talk (as 1710-1 learns to their consternation).
- Nice Girl: Aforementioned Motor Mouth tendencies aside, 1710-2 is actually quite friendly and personable, still trying to comfort 1710-1 despite the latter repeatedly insulting her. And even though she has left them behind with her reincarnation, she is shown to often think back fondly on her happy times with her beloved husband and daughter from when she was still human.
- Odd Couple/Odd Friendship: 1710-1 and 1710-2 gradually develop this dynamic over the course of the audio logs.
- Oh, Crap!: Overlaps with This Is Gonna Suck below.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Played for Laughs when SCP-1710-1 sheepishly admits that they're finding it too difficult to keep on "sharpening" themselves.SCP-1710-1: Must regain ourselves, must seek retribution! Sharpen ourselves from wood. So tired. So round. This form ill suits sharpness. Materials incompatible, atmosphere hostile to our needs, wildlife distracting. Fuzzy things crawling on us.SCP-1710-2: You sound just awful, dear.SCP-1710-1: We are tired. Too much struggle, keeping the metal. Metal hated rain, but rain rain is nice. Sun is nice. What is happening to us?!SCP-1710-2: Identity crisis, I suppose. Oh, I know what will help! How about a nice cup of tea?
- Shout-Out: According to the author, the SCP as a whole is heavily inspired by both The Shrike and his Tree of Pain from Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos series.
- Stealth Pun: SCP-1710-1 is described as "The Serrated Void," often describing how sharp they (literally) were. Also, they often talk in dark and foreboding passages, occasionally mentioning how they used to have enough power in their home reality where they could "pluck out the eyes of gods" and "make the universe our whetstone." In other words, SCP-1710-1 is a literal edgelord.
- This Is Gonna Suck: Played for Laughs near the ending of the last recording log, when SCP-1710-1 starts to fully realize their predicament as SCP-1710-2 rambles on and on about tea.
- Voice of the Legion: SCP-1710-1 is described as talking in "an indeterminable number of voices, both masculine and feminine and of various ages and accents, all speaking at once" when it imitates human speech.
- We Named the Monkey "Jack": Because 1710-2 can't understand SCP-1710-1's true name, she decides to nickname them "Maxwell," after her pet dog from when she was little.
- When Trees Attack: Averted, as the only really anomalous thing about them (aside from the hints of SCP-1710-1's true nature with its bark) is their conversations with each other.
SCP-1716 - Imperfect Life Extender
- Life Energy: SCP-1716 is a device that transfers life energy from one person to another.
- Rapid Aging: SCP-1716 causes the Life Energy donor to age 10 years for every year the recipient's life is extended.
SCP-1726 - The Library and the Pillar
- Bigger on the Inside: The Library appears to be a small one story structure. Inside it is 14 square kilometers in area and a pillar inside it reaches up at least 12.8 kilometers.
- Magical Library: The Library has many volumes of philosophy, theology, and history from cultures that are mythological in the real world (such as Shambhala, Lemuria and Mu). It has animated statues that can speak various languages and act as guides for visitors.
SCP-1730 - What Happened to Site-13?
- Alternate History: The construction of Site-13 was scrapped in favor of creating Site-19, but SCP-1730 is from an alternate timeline where Site-19 was scrapped and Site-13 built instead to house and dispose of a sea monster carcass. SCP-1730/Site-13s universe also saw the Soviet Union collapse in 1985, a Marxist extremist bringing down the "Manchester Financial Tower" in 1994, and the Foundation merge with the Global Occult Coalition after Dole won the 1996 election.
- A Nazi by Any Other Name: After the Coalition annexed the Foundation and Emerson was promoted to Site-13s director, it wasnt long until it was opted to conduct vivisections and put the incinerator back to use. Once the Ethics Committee was informed, the chairman was labeled a traitor for his sympathy and the new Head of the Ethics decreed that all anomalous humans are Acceptable Targets.However, you must understand that anomalies, especially those classified as "humanoid", are not human beings. Human beings fall into a very specific category of non-anomalous lifeforms. Humanoid anomalies may appear to be human, but are simply humanoid. As such, they are not entitled to the rights and privileges afforded to human beings by the Ethics Committee.
- Came Back Wrong: Prior to Site-13s containment breach and his scheduled termination, Elijah/Entity-3421 was likened by the G.O.C. to leeches, not unlike the hive mind of ones to ravage the site after his death.
- Chaos Architecture: The Reality-Warpers and dimension-hopping failsafe has left some of already decrepit and hazardous sections physically incoherent.T-5 Nanku: "So were looking at a map? It seems too distorted to be a map."T-5 Onru: "Ongoing topographical changes. Means that, despite the changes in the structure of the site, its all still located within our local reality. Its just unstable."
- Continuity Cameo: The Mobile Task Forces encounter the Alternate Universe counterparts to several SCPs such as the the crystalline butterflies, Bobble the Clown, and Jack Bright, but only the readers presumptions can assume whether others such as Pesterbot or The Leviathan had their parts in this as well.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Some of the largest containment cells held beings such as SCP-2845 and the Abrahamic God.Dr. Scott: "In 2010 we contained God. Not just any god, either. The Abrahamic God. The actual, thunder and lightning, Y-H-W-H, fire and brimstone god."
- Disney Death: The survivors of Zeta-9 and Apollo-3 can easily be assumed dead until they are found by the Cyborg Badass Crew Tau-5 "Samsara".
- Hive Mind: The leeches function with some form of one for navigation. Tau-5s Onru probes the brain stem of one to get a map of SCP-1730.
- Interdimensional Travel Device: The Thresher; a machine with No Plans, No Prototype and No Backup, built with the purpose that in event of a mass security breach it would rip Site-13 from the ground and throw it to another dimension to be their Leaking Can of Evil.
- Kick the Dog: The inhumane treatment and killing of the SCPs held in Site-13 is a strong allegory to the death camps of World War II.
- Malevolent Architecture: Due to being thrown into a different universe, several segments underground have the walls and floor collapsing to a dangerous, even chaotic extent. The burrowing leeches in the basement arent doing much to help either.
- Mechanical Monster: As the Mobile Task Forces are evacuating the survivors from SCP-1730, they encounter an amalgamation of robotic parts, topped off with a small Killer Robot at the helm of the Tiny-Headed Behemoth. While the logs only refer to it as "Mechanical Entity" note , the small, toy-like description of the head is reminiscent of RoboDude, but its hammy and malicious personality holds a strong similarity to PesterBot.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Tau-5 encounters a being with six legs, eighteen arms branching off into a total of thirty-six forearms, and seventy-two hands. Thats three hundred and ninety digits. note
- Mummies at the Dinner Table: Played for Black Comedy laughs with Apollo-3s "reunion" with a corpse stuck in the wall, asking "Zachary" for directions.
- Names to Run Away From: A machine called "the Thresher" doesnt seem pleasant. Neither would numbered "body pits".
- Remember the New Guy?: A heavily-decayed corpse found by Apollo-3 briefly gives them Fake Memories of "Zachary".SiteCommand: "Team Lead, please be advised that you are under the effects of a powerful cognitohazard. We are attempting to upload a filter to your SCRAMBLE visors, one moment."AP-3 Vigo: "Nah, Command, its alright. Its just Zachary. We go way back, dont we buddy?"AP-3 Vigo playfully punches the corpse, dislodging its jaw. The corpse does not respond.
- Room Full of Crazy: Rambling and writings have been fingerpainted in ferrous blood or Squick across the walls in either English or Black Speech by a cloaked entity in a straw hat.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: The Eldritch Horrors inside SCP-1730 thankfully have stayed within the confines of the Site-13s ruins; the only thing that came out of it were radio waves and the survivors.
- Zero-Effort Boss: The enigmatic cloaked figure recorded by the drone is easily gunned down by Munru and Nanku. The latter fires the killing shot to its eye before the floor beneath it collapses.
SCP-1733 - Season Opener
- And I Must Scream: Their situation is absolutely horrifying. See "Groundhog Day" Loop.
- Camera Screw: In-Universe example; after the 45th playback, all future playbacks are through one static-position camera, making details very difficult to view or hear.
- Closed Circle: Nobody in the area of the recording can leave.
- Driven to Suicide: In playback 112, quite a few people leap from the balcony section of the arena within the first ten minutes.
- "Groundhog Day" Loop: SCP-1733 is a recording of a 2010-2011 NBA match between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat at TD Garden. The catch is that everyone becomes increasingly aware of their situation with each playback. At first it manifests as a kind of mild intuition, which allows the players to keep the game at 0-0 for a while, but then it becomes an increasing sense of déjà vu. Some of the players claim to have had dreams of what's going to happen in the game. After 45 playbacks, the people realize what's happening and begin trying to escape. Things go downhill from there.
- Human Sacrifice: The Faithkeepers ritualistically murder some of the players to appease whatever force is keeping them trapped. When that doesn't work, they try to move up to children.
- Last Stand: In the second to last playback, the people of "Section 320" wage one against the Faithkeepers, who are attempting to sacrifice their children.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Averted. In a later playback, Paul Pierce and LeBron James are hauled out of the player facilities and sacrified by the Faithkeepers.
- Nothing Is Scarier: The final playback just describes the arena being bathing in an ominous red light. All data afterward is expunged.
- Pet the Dog: The Foundation has banned any further playbacks of SCP-1733.
- Public-Domain Character: LeBron James and Paul Pierce are mentioned by name.
- Reincarnation: All individuals, regardless of injuries or if they're even killed, are shown to be perfectly fine in the next playback.
- Religion of Evil: The Faithkeepers are a group that emerge after playback 65. They claim that their imprisonment in TD Garden is because of their society's rampant consumerist culture and begin burning personal objects as offerings, setting up hedonistic orgies of sex and violence, and eventually trying to sacrifice people.
- Resurrective Immortality: With every playback, all deaths and injuries are reset to zero.
- You Shall Not Pass!: When the Faithkeepers move to try and sacrifice the children, the remaining adults form a human wall between them.
SCP-1734 - The Hole in the Deck
- Bigger on the Inside: The interior of the spatial anomaly ship goes down at least 70 meters, much further than the height of a regular frigate.
SCP-1739 - Obsolete Laptop
- Alternate Universe: SCP-1739 turns an Eldritch Abomination into a Sealed Evil in a Can by creating one of these. The Abomination is distracted by being allowed to destroy the new universe, keeping it from destroying the universe it's in.
- Eldritch Abomination: SCP-1739 is a computer containing a program that has the ability to send people back in time, creating an alternate timeline and allowing communication with the alternate timeline, for a period of 3 hours. Whenever it is used an animation of a dog chasing after a ball and breaking it plays. After using the computer several times it was realized that the animation is actually a symbol representing an Eldritch Abomination (the dog) annihilating the alternate universes (the balls) created by the computer, whose purpose is to keep the thing satisfied, so that it won't decide to break out of its metaphorical chain. The Eldritch Abomination is described as "Something incomprehensibly terrible, in both senses of that word, something that can destroy an entire universe just by passing its shadow over it."
- Sealed Evil in a Can: SCP-1739 contains an Eldritch Abomination by creating an Alternate Universe. The Abomination is distracted by being allowed to destroy the Alternate Universe, keeping it from destroying the universe it's in.
SCP-1749 - Trans-American Murder Messengers
- Cyanide Pill: SCP-1749-2 are Men in Black who appear only to commit murder. After killing someone they kill themselves by taking a cyanide pill. If it fails they carry a backup pill inside one of their molars.
- The Men in Black: SCP-1749-2 are Caucasian men between 24 and 36 years old and about 6 and a half feet tall. They dress in black business suits and dress shoes and carry a loaded handgun. When they appear they kill the nearest human being and then commit suicide with a Cyanide Pill.
SCP-1753 - Vertigo
- Driven to Suicide: Herbert ███████, who was presumably the SCP's creator, committed suicide and left behind a suicide note stating:the sky's calling
time to fly
- Hallucinations: Anyone who sees the painting and comprehends the phrase written on it ("time to fly") begins to see even a slight drop (such as a curb or a stair) as a cliff face of 2000 m height.
SCP-1756 - At the Movies
- As Himself: In the review of footage of ABC News coverage of 9/11, both critics marvel at the number of on-air personnel playing themselves (this is because they review anything inserted into the SCP in a DVD, whether it be music, video games or other non-movie content as if it were a movie).
- Dull Surprise: Gene Siskel states that the male Commander Shepard gives a wooden delivery of his lines in the review produced when a Mass Effect DVD is inserted into the SCP.
- Take That!: In the review of an episode of At the Movies (the original show by Siskel and Ebert) where Ebert pays tribute to Siskel after his death, both critics agree that the body of Siskel plays the part better than Lorry Goldman (who played a No Celebrities Were Harmed version of Siskel in Godzilla (1998)).
SCP-1759 - Lovely Lucy
- Beware the Nice Ones: "Lucy" is genial and polite to even those who don't make contact with the artwork. Except the project researcher who intended to send more D-class up to most likely perish. Her reaction was to have one of the D-class grab a guards gun and shoot at him. Said researcher wisely requested someone else take over.
- Forever War: It seems to be locked in one with a ghostly group of German fighter planes.
- Haunted Technology: An old World War II bomber plane with all but confirmed sentience.
SCP-1760 - Casket Garden
- Mad Scientist: Pyotr was a mortician and scientist who carried out experiments regarding long term chemical preservation of human remains, as well as chemically induced reanimation and regeneration of such remains. This is the source of the animated remains that appear in the SCP-1760-16 coffin every six years.
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: At noon on November 15th, fifteen coffins filled with human remains mysteriously rise out of the ground in Site 84. At midnight the same day they sink into the ground again and disappear.
SCP-1761 - The Republic of Arnold Fitzwilliams
- Fictional Country: The Republic of Arnold Fitzwilliams
- Hammerspace: He can pull currency and other objects from nowhere.
- Nations as People: SCP-1761 is a man who thinks he is a country and has a number of abilities based on being a country.
- People's Republic of Tyranny: It is implied that The Republic of Arnold Fitzwilliams may have become one of these.
SCP-1765 - Sisters
- Fate Worse than Death: Area-37's personnel are subjected to their experiments, which are often repeated for hundreds of times. Even death is no release, as they are capable of rewinding time and force the test subjects to redo the experiment.
- Mad Scientist: They offered themselves to perform experiments on The Foundation's behalf, but given their experiment results tend to go into Straw Nihilist territory, it's unclear whether they're doing it strictly For Science! or For the Evulz.
- Reality Warper: They can warp space, time, and reality itself, and have turned Area-37 and its inhabitants as their personal playground.
- Unwanted Assistance: Needless to say, The Foundation isn't exactly thrilled of their experiments, but the best they can do is let them do their experiments, to occupy and contain them.
- The Weird Sisters: Each of the three has a specific personality and voice, which is described as feminine.
SCP-1782 - Tabula Rasa
- And I Must Scream: Its mother is fused with a septic tank and forced to live out eternity in a pocket dimensional hole.
- Fetus Terrible: Namely, a reality bender that was aborted before it could come to term. The entity haunts the apartment where it was aborted, and comes back to life at dusk. Common headcanon is that it is the Witch Child in an alternate universe.
- Surreal Horror with a healthy dose of Mind Screw. Apparitions in the apartment are seemingly random, and the underlying nature of the anomaly is hard to pinpoint without an explanation or a few close reads.
SCP-1784 - Skywriter Sloths
- Solid Clouds: The sloths can fart out clouds. They can subsequently interact with the clouds as if they were solid objects, including forming them into forests and nests.
- Living Gasbag: The sloths use electrolysis to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen. They store the hydrogen in an internal bladder and use it to float in the air. They store the oxygen and use it to supplement their breathing at high altitudes.
SCP-1788 - The Adults
- Fat Bastard: In adult form SCP-1788-1 are all extremely obese, weighing 150-200 kilograms (330-440 lbs.). They kidnap pre-pubescent children and use an unknown process on them to turn them into examples of SCP-1788-1.
- Multiarmed And Dangerous: Adult forms of SCP-1788-1 appear to be extremely obese human beings with two extra arms located below their main ones. Their bones are reinforced with heavy metals and their muscles have been interwoven with carbon nanotubes, giving them superhuman strength, speed and durability.
- Transhuman: They are genetically human, but much stronger, tougher and harder to kill. And they have an extra pair of arms.
- Übermensch: They see society as composed of "children" and consider themselves to be the true state of humanity.
SCP-1790 - Layla
- Cult: In every single one of its reincarnations, SCP-1790 always starts a cult idolizing mass murder and ritualized self-sacrifice. If SCP-1790 completely depopulates an entire area, it will just move on else where and start a new one.
- Reincarnation: SCP-1790's reincarnation process is described entirely in pseudo-scientific terms. SCP-1790 itself is described as a collection of associated human memories and personality (instead of, say, a person), and the process which it reincarnates is described as these memories and personality taking over the mind of a newborn infant.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: SCP-1790's quotes indicate that it is in some way related to the Arabic tale of Layla and Majnun (detailed on the trope page), and is most likely a reincarnation of the story's Layla, who had gone mad from love and decides to use bloodshed to make Majnun "rise anew from the slaughter".
SCP-1795 - The Star Womb
- Advanced Ancient Humans: It's implied that humanity is originally from a different world and created the Star Wombs to serve as planet-builders for their empire.
- After the End: For them, at least. Most of their masters were wiped out by the "Pattern Screamer", and they've been making planets in the hope that some of them may have survived.
- Gentle Giant: They're absolute massive, measuring 50,000 kilometers in diameter. They also create habitable earth-like planets in the hope that their masters might've escaped extinction.
- That's No Moon!: They look like heart-shaped nebulae, but they're actually enormous living creatures.
SCP-1799 - Mr. Laugh
- Brown Note: Anyone who converses with him will instantly believe that everything he says is a joke and be sent into fits of hysterical laughter, which will only get worse as the conversation continues.
- Driven to Suicide: He hasn't succeeded, but he wants to.
- The Eeyore: Being laughed at for every single moment of your life and being randomly forced into doing painful magic tricks is certainly not good for your mental well-being.
- The Hyena: What he unwillingly causes people to become.
- Magical Clown: Mr. Laugh is capable of performing magic tricks without any props, such as removing and reattaching his limb, pulling a string of cloth out of his mouth, and extruding smoke from his orifices. The problem is, he cannot control any of them and all of them are very painful.
- Ironic Name: Mr. Laugh is suicidally depressed.
- Sad Clown: Played with. Mr. Laugh himself is a literal representation of the "sad clown" trope, being a depressed clown that cracks jokes. Yet this trope only applies when people in-universe were affected by him, when people think he's cracking jokes. From the document's (reader's) standpoint, Mr. Laugh is clearly a suicidally depressed person who is not even attempting to hide his pains.
SCP-1804 - Underwood #5
- Mind Manipulation: The SCP is a typewriter that causes any documents it produces to alter the minds of those who read them, but this only works with sufficiently-original content. The alteration also depends of the typer's state of mind, and they may be affected by it as well.
- Sanity Slippage: This tends to happen with people who use the SCP or read documents produced by it. For instance, one D-class who was tasked with maintaining a diary using the SCP gradually became convinced that the Foundation had replaced parts of her with parts from the SCP (for instance, she believed that her teeth were typewriter keys).
SCP-1805 - A Real Doll
- Death by Woman Scorned: She killed a D-class subject it had imprinted upon because he apparently pretended to love her (although he was divorced).
- Implausible Deniability: She's either unable or unwilling to admit that she's not human.
- Literal-Minded: She has occasionally taken metaphorical or idiomatic statements literally.
- Love Martyr: She will always remain devoted to her imprinted subject until they die, no matter how badly they treat her.
- Sex Bot: She's a plastic mannequin that's intended for use as a sex doll, and she becomes imprinted on whoever had sex with her last.
- Woman Scorned: An extreme version; she... doesn't react well to any affection showed by the subject she's imprinted on towards past girlfriends, relatives or even fictional characters.
SCP-1807 - Home Sweet Okapi
- Bigger on the Inside: SCP-1807 is a dead okapi about 1 meter high. Inside it is an extremely cold (less than 0º C) 2 square kilometer area.
- Life Energy: Anyone who touches SCP-1807 will disappear as their life force is drained from them. The life force is stolen to act as an energy source for a civilization living in another dimension.
SCP-1819 - Darkness is Only Skin Deep
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: The boogeyman that inflicts the dangerous SCP-1819 effect on children is described by the children as having a large "bright" or "burning" red eye.
- Weakened by the Light: Inverted. When children affected by SCP-1819 are in darkness they suffer the effects of severe sunburn, including an increased risk of cancer.
SCP-1823 - Rock in a Hard Place
- Mega Maelstrom: SCP-1823 is a whirlpool with a variable diameter (1-4 kilometers) that can move between locations at up to 30 kilometers per hour. It hunts down and destroys ships.
- Sea Monster: There is a large monster with many heads that has attacked the SCP-1823 Mega Maelstrom on at least one occasion. It may be the inspiration for the creature Scylla in Greek Mythology.
SCP-1827 - A Trap For Turkeys
- The Bad Guy Wins: The herons won the Heron/Turkey war.
- Big Bad: The heron leader, who has been masquerading as "The Great Turkey", the Big Good.
- Big Good: "The Great Turkey" was probably this during the Turkey/Heron war.
- Evil All Along: "The Great Turkey", aka the heron leader.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: It's implied the herons attempts to manipulate the turkeys are resulting in their own undoing. In 500 years, the turkeys will retake Hindler.
- Manipulative Bastard: The heron leader has been manipulating the Foundation into thinking that the turkeys won the war. They didn't.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The herons' attempt to manipulate Earth's turkeys are resulting in their own undoing.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: "The Great Turkey" initially seems to be unaware of humanity's existence. However, there are hints that he may not be so unaware after all...
- Parallel Universe: Leads to one inhabited by sapient birds.
- Scary Dogmatic Aliens: The herons are implied to be this, which is horrifying, considering they won the Heron/Turkey war.
- Written by the Winners: A bizarre case. The herons won the Turkey/Heron war. However, in order to manipulate Earth's turkeys, the herons have been rewriting Hindler's history so it seems like the turkeys won the war.
SCP-1835 - Rupertian Zeppelins
- Propaganda Machine: The Federated Empire of Rupertia uses the Zeppelins to drop propaganda leaflets on its own territory.
- Zeppelins from Another World: The Federated Empire of Rupertia is a nation in an Alternate Universe that's in a war with the nation of Alaria. Its automated zeppelins sometimes accidentally cross into the SCP Foundation's universe and drop propaganda leaflets.
SCP-1839 - Reproductive Methods of Bony Fish
- Mind Rape: It's a textbook that convinces you that you're a fish, which is silly, because fish like you can't hold books, much less read them.
- Punny Name: The book Reproductive Methods of Bony Fish is published by Uriah Fetch Publishing. Meanwhile, the Addendum is written by Dr. U. R. A. Fish.
- Surreal Horror: It doesn't get any more surreal than something that's trying to inform you of your fishy status. And yet, people who read the book suffocate due to believing that they're a fish and out of water, or drown when they try to return to their home environment. note
SCP-1844 - Crater at 31.7███° N, 35.1███° E
- Animalistic Abomination: One containment breach involved a demon that looks like a sheep with extra eyes and horns.
- Conflict Killer: People from multiple faiths have been working together to contain it over the centuries, including during the Crusades.
- Driven to Suicide: SCP-1844 actively tries to cause this via Mind Rape. The Foundation's procedures are designed to minimize it and are mostly successful.
- Fire and Brimstone Hell: Apparently accessible through the pit.
- Hellgate: A fairly standard one. It was originally a rewrite of SCP-616.
- Mind Rape: Exposure to SCP-1844 slowly but surely does this to the people that contain it. Modern containment procedures have managed to minimize it.
- Our Demons Are Different: The entities inside the pit are described as demons in various documents that the Foundation has discovered.
- Out of the Inferno: Literally. One ancient containment breach caused a "wind of fire" that allowed a large number of the demons to escape.
- Real Event, Fictional Cause: One containment breach in 1939 allowed an emaciated horseman on an albino horse to escape. In Christian eschatology, the White Horseman is that of war. It's implied to have been a cause for World War 2
SCP-1845 - Animal Kingdom
- Animal Talk: Although certain members of the community know how to read and write several languages. SCP-1845-1 primarily communicates to the Foundation via typewriter.
- Arch-Nemesis: SCP-1845-1 and Duke Baxter of the West Bay. (A black-tailed deer.) The very reason SCP-1845 was ever found in the first place was because the Duke started a Civil War in the community. According to SCP-1845-1, the Dukes misdeeds include having accused them falsely of witchcraft, assassinated our Queen Consort, and kidnapped the Prince of █████ █████ and our other royal issue. The Duke is still at large, or at least the Foundation Never Found the Body. SCP-1845-1 also commented that Duke Baxter is a most uncouth usurper, rogue, and Protestant.
- Banned in China: In-Universe. The most often request SCP-1845-1 makes is literature. Only about half of the books are approved. For example, SCP-1845-1 requested the entire works of William Shakespeare. The Foundation approved this, but omitted all the plays that featured regicide. Other denied requests include: The Aeneid, The Prince, The Man in the Iron Mask, and The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care.
- Gratuitous Latin: Latin is their preferred written language. For communication between the Foundation, Middle French is used.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Downplayed. Three instances did SCP-1845-1 ever request clothing for any member of his community: A priests robes for a deer (denied), a jeweled crown (denied), and costumes for a live reenactment of the Nativity scene. (Granted.)
- Literal Metaphor: A small kingdom of animals.
- Must Have Caffeine: SCP-1845-1 has made three subsequent requests for some form of coffee. Fresh and dried coffee beans were denied but the coffee-flavored ice cream was granted.
- No Cartoon Fish: The carnivores get their protein from insects and nutrient-supplemented plant-based foods provided by Foundation personnel. SCP-1845-1 tried to get some live fish for their habitat's pond but was denied, though he was granted dead fish as a dietary supplement during Lent.
- POW Camp: Their firm belief of the Foundation.Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1845-1 is currently of the belief that it and its associates are prisoners of war and that its allies will ransom or rescue it in the near future; it is not to be disabused of this notion.
- The Red Baron: The nobles of 1845 are dubbed elaborate titles, such as "Duke of the Elm", "Countess of the █████████ Trail", or "Knight of the Thistle".
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: SCP-1845-1s FULL title is His Royal Highness, Eugenio the Second, by the Grace of God, King of the Forest, Lord of the Plains, Duke of the Grand Fir and the Undergrowth, Count of the Swamp, Margrave of ██ ███████, Warden of All the Streams and Rivers, and Lord Protector of the Cities of Man, Defender of the Faith.
- Royal "We": Used in SCP-1845-1's messages.
- We Can Rule Together: SCP-1845-1 holds a great amount of respect for O5-█, referring him as "His most serene and glorious Holy Roman Emperor." and expressing the desire for an alliance. Attempts to form this alliance comes in the form of SCP-1845-1s many, many requests. In chronological order:
- An audience with O5-█. Denied.
- A political marriage to his daughter. Denied. Directly afterward: The addition to the habitat of a female fox, "of marriageable age, noble blood, and chastity true." Approval pending. (Meaning that the Foundation has no way of finding a fox that even meets those qualifications.)
- Permission to send a letter to O5-█, which offered a promise of vassalage and tribute in the form of wool, freshly-picked fruits and berries, and woodcrafts in exchange for release from captivity and military assistance in reclaiming its lands from Duke Baxter. Granted; O5-█ has chosen to take no action on the letter.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: On the Foundations shoulders. SCP-1845-1 has made a very long list of requests, with varying degrees of success. This includes wanting to get a member of his community officially ordained as a Roman Catholic Priest and SCP-1845-1 personally attending the next Papal conclave as a voting member. Both were denied.
SCP-1867 - A Gentleman
- Cool Old Guy: As cool and old as a sea slug can be.
- Deadpan Snarker: He has his moments.
- Gentleman Adventurer: Claims to be one anyway.
- Intellectual Animal: Possibly. Sort of. Physically, Lord Blackwood appears to be a perfectly ordinary sea slug. He seems oblivious to this fact.
- The Munchausen: He's always telling personnel of his escapades, one even called him out on it.You do realize that youre a sea slug, right?
- Telepathy: Lord Blackwood is a sea slug that can communicate telepathically with anyone within 5 meters of it.
- Unreliable Narrator: Lord Blackwood thinks he's a British gentleman adventurer. He does exaggerate his tales, but there's considerable evidence that they aren't entirely delusional.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: If the accounts are correct, Lord Blackwood may have just been the one that inspired SCP-319's maker to try and travel to another universe, and given him the means to attempt it. A short read of that particular file lets us know that attempt essentially doomed this universe.
SCP-1875 - Antique Chess Computer
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The computer will infect nearby computers via wireless transmission with an email containing 1875-IMG-1AB, which causes memetic effects to viewers that culminate in gruesome effects, including anxiety, loss of response to external stimuli, self-mutilation, and [REDACTED].
- Arc Words: "November 77".
- Artificial Stupidity: At machine setting V, the highest setting, the computer initially shows proficient chess play, but with further testing, it degrades into making idiot moves, then illegal moves, then banging up chess pieces together.
- Bilingual Bonus: "шахматы," the name of the file assumed to control 1875-IMG-1AB, means "chess" in Russian.
- Brown Note: Staring at 1875-IMG-1AB have terrible consequences to any viewer including feelings of paranoia, anxiety, hallucinations, self-mutilations and other unmentioned effects.
- Creepy Child: The girls featured in 1875-IMG-1AB are presumably the Russian chess player's daughters with disturbing distorted faces and a Slasher Smile. Looking at their faces can have horrible untreatable memetic effects.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: The corrupted incident report which directly addresses any SCP Foundation Wiki user as "we c u <username>", as well as Exercise November-77, which contains 1875-IMG-1AB itself.
- Haunted Technology: A chess automaton powered by a machine partially made from the brain matter of a Russian chess champion's daughters whose souls presumably still live there and send a disturbing memetic image to any data storing technology nearby.
- Jump Scare: A log of "Exercise 1875-November-77" consists of "UPLOADING... UPLOADING... UPLOADING..." for many dozen lines... and then suddenly shows 1875-IMG-1AB, which is a warped picture of what is presumably the two daughters of a late Russian chess player as described above. In the image shown on the page, the two girls look utterly demonic. Uniquely enough for a jump scare, the whole page is static, with no gifs of any kind - the Jump Scare is achieved purely by baiting the reader to scroll past the "UPLOADING" as fast as possible and running into the unexpected picture. By convincing the reader to scroll down, they are also expected to skip the one line that makes the addendum a dead giveaway that it's actually just a front for шахматы.███ running and pulling up 1875-IMG-1AB.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: What Exercise 1875-November-77 amounts to for 1875-IMG-1AB's controller, шахматы.███, once SCP-1875 takes over.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: Or rather, two children. More specifically, their brain matter.
- Red Herring: The samurai armor has almost nothing at all to do with any of the device. If you are expecting it to become animate, you are totally wrong though those who stared at its face do sense a feel of anxiety.
- Schmuck Bait: It tries to lure you into a Jump Scare with a huge wall of "UPLOADING..." repeated en masse. Thankfully a good reader can save themselves from being baited if they notice that the fourth addendum is actually шахматы.███ (the file used to presumably give 1875-IMG-1AB its Brown Note properties) being executed from the first line of said addendum.
SCP-1877 - The Guts of the Earth

- Your Heart's Desire: When a sapient creature looks inside the "Treasure Room" it sees some extremely valuable object(s) appropriate to its own knowledge. For example, a jewel thief would see precious stones and gems, a nuclear physicist would see a cold fusion reactor, and so on.
SCP-1893 - The Minotaur's Tale
- Batter Up!: The figure described in the stories, most likely SCP-1893 itself, always carries a baseball bat.

SCP-1911 - Gramgrams
- Ambiguously Human: Who or what they are is not established; they seem to be an entity that takes the appearance of an old woman who tries to enter/invade men's homes to act as grandmotherly caretakers. They can appear as more than one instance of themselves if resisted and can multiply into swarms of up to 30 entities, but still are only as strong as an ordinary elderly grandmother, so trying to force their way in fails more than it succeeds.
- Cool Old Lady: Subverted. While they appear to be so at a glance, their victims become fairly dependent on them after an extended period of time.
- Graceful Loser: If forced out of a house to the point that they have no choice but to retreat, they usually just disappear and leave behind a plate of baked goods with a note apologizing for the inconvenience and expressing condolences that they couldn't spend time with "their grandson".

- Obliviously Evil: They only seem to want to help, but they more or less force men to be their "grandsons".
- Team Mom: Deconstructed; their goal seems to be mothering people, but their victims become fairly dependent on them after an extended period of time.
- Reality Ensues: If resisted, they'll try to force their way into a man's house. This actually fails more often than it succeeds, as they almost always have the average strength of any ordinary elderly woman.
- Supreme Chef: They love to cook for their "grandchildren". The sweets they bake evidently do not have anomalous properties.
- Voluntary Shapeshifter: Typically takes the form of a host's elderly female loved one.
- Zerg Rush: When pushed to their limits, they can produce up to 30 copies of themselves to force their way into a man's house.

- Friend to All Children: They protect children from nightmares.
- Good Is Not Nice: They love children, but they can and will brutally punish any Mewt who fails to protect a child. Just ask poor SCP-1926-2.
- Groin Attack: For them, the equivalent of castration/neutering is ripping a Mewt's button off. Implied to have happened to SCP-1926-2, who has no button.

- This Is Unforgivable!: The Mewts' reaction to SCP-1926-2's failure to protect a child.

- The Voiceless: They don't have mouths, so they're mute, although they can produce sounds such as giggling and whimpering.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: All Mewts are afraid of the dark. When the lights are turned off, the Mewts shiver, whimper and huddle closely together.
- You Have Failed Me: SCP-1926-2 is a Mewt that is ostracized by the colony. Its tag says that it "failed to protect everything [they] hold dear". According to the author, Mewts project into astral forms to protect children having nightmares, and SCP-1926-2 failed to prevent the death of a child who was having an epileptic seizure during a night terror.
SCP-1935 - An Empty Chamber
- Heroic Suicide: SCP-1935 does not trust itself to safely use it's reality-bending abilities, and fears releasing it's power in case that the "things from places between places" come forth. The only thing it sees as a possible answer is unmaking itself.I could unmake myself. If I could trust myself to use the power, just once, to send myself to a place where it could do no harm, where it would simply dissipate, left to blend with the greater entropy of creation.
- My God, What Have I Done?: After thinking about 'unmaking' all the people who forgot or didn't care about him in high-school, SCP-1935 catches himself.I caught myself then, and I could see how far I have fallen.

- Cult: The Victory Society, charged with aiding this weird gathering whenever it happens. Subverted, in that they actually hate their gods and want them to kill each other.
- Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: The Victory Society's entire reason for existing is to summon rival Eldritch Abominations, bind them in a mystic trap, and get them to kill each other.
- Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: At least two of the eldritch creatures summoned by the ritual are benevolent and actively try to protect the citizens of Daleport and Foundation troops sent into the town.

- Alliterative Title: The title.
- Always Female: The book's magic rituals only work when performed by females.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: "Experimentation logs show that after no less than 20 successful attempts at homemaking tasks, the instructions turn into detailed rituals, some of which mirror those which first were recorded in ███ ██████; some have never been previously documented.

SCP-1958 - Magic Bus
- The Aloner: The driver, William, remains the sole living person in the microbus for about a month and a half before his final journal entry.
- Audio Adaptation: Here. In the video, the journal is now a tape-recording.
- Awesome, but Impractical: A flying microbus that can go into space while keeping its crew oxygenated sounds cool, but with a top speed of 130 kilometers per hournote , it's not very useful for extraorbital travel.
- Brutal Honesty: "Analysis indicates that SCP-1958's trajectory will place it in the vicinity of the star Alpha Centauri A in approximately 37.2 million years."
- Church of Happyology: Mentioned in passing; William and his friends were kicked out of the Fifthist Church.

SCP-1972 - The Whore and the Cop

SCP-1979 - Relativistic Treadmill
- Rapid Aging: Time passes faster than normal inside SCP-1979's time acceleration sphere. A person inside the sphere will age at a higher than normal rate, with the rate increasing as the sphere expands. At a radius of 25 meters a person will age at a rate of 10,404 times normal, or 173 minutes per second. As the sphere expands to 30 meters they will age about 9 years. By the time the sphere reaches 35 meters they will age another 48 years. By the time the sphere reached 40 meters they would be long dead.
- Year Outside, Hour Inside: While SCP-1979 is being operated time passes faster on the outside than the inside: the multiplication factor depends on the speed the device is set for. At a speed of 2 km/hour the factor is 7.23 to 1. At a speed of 10 km/hour the factor, for each minute spent running on SCP-1979 15 days, 7 hours, 6 minutes and 18 seconds pass outside.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: If SCP-1979 is not operated for at least 30 minutes per hour, a sphere will appear around SCP-1979. Time will pass more quickly inside the sphere than in the outside world. As the sphere expands, the multiplication faction increases exponentially. For example, at a 25 meter radius the factor is 10404 (1 second outside = 173 minutes inside). At 50 meters radius the factor is 108,250,000 (1 second outside = 206 years inside). And it just gets worse from there.
SCP-1981 - "RONALD REAGAN CUT UP WHILE TALKING"
- Arc Words: The phrase "Now there you go again" is uttered in almost all parts. It is one that the real Reagan spoke quite frequently.

- Groin Attack: One of the ways Reagan gets cut up in the video is via "genital mutilation".
- Hidden Agenda Villain: The dark figure that stands behind Reagan in all of these videos, referred to as "SCP-1981-1". No one knows why it's there or what it's doing. What we do know about it is that it wears a black hood and can see the viewer◊.
- Laughing Mad: One tape ends with Reagan laughing until the signal cuts out.
- I Know You're Watching Me: Intertitle by SCP-1981-1: "I SEE YOU"
- Mind Screw: Pretty much all of the tapes. For example:0:17:24 - Reagan: A renewal of the traditional values that have been the tendons of this country's strength. One recent survey by a Washington-based researcher concluded that Americans were far more willing to participate in cannibalism then they have in the past hundred years. America is a nation that will not suffer abominations lightly. Seven. And that is the core of the awakening. Twelve. Eighteen. We will stop al-Qaeda. Now there you go again.
- Rasputinian Death:Despite suffering bodily harm that would likely incapacitate an ordinary person, Reagan will continue to deliver his speech until either his vocal cords are severed or the tape degrades to static at 22:34.
- Slashed Throat: The only kind of injuries that can stop Reagan from giving his speech.
- Word-Salad Horror: Reagan's speeches are all completely gibberish, but have clear coherency in some places and a definite theme towards violence and nightmarish scenes."For the first time we have risen, and I see we are being consumed. I see circles that are not circles. Billions of dead souls inside containment. Unravellers have eaten country's moral fabric, turning hearts into filth. I'm from a kingdom level above human. What does that yield? A hokey smile that damns an entire nation. There is no hope."

- Silver Bullet: This is the only way to kill the shadow creatures. And you have to be praying as you fire the bullet.
- Weakened by the Light: Inverted. The shadow monsters are stronger in the light, as they have clear sharp edges in it; in the dark, they're indistinct, and apparently cannot interact with people whose shadows are not visible.
SCP-1994 - Rot
- Body Horror: It causes teeth to grow all over the body, which then rapidly decay to produce calcified masses that release a white powder capable of infecting more people.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Infected people die roughly two weeks after full decay has occurred, due to their inability to take in any nutrition, the high volume of decayed tissue and their weakened immune systems.
- Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Dr. Yelkov created the SCP, and he performed his experiments on various subjects, including children, without any concern as to their welfare.
- Would Hurt a Child: Dr. Yelkov performed some of his experiments on children.
