SCP-2000 - Deus Ex Machina
- Alternate Timeline: This thing has apparently run different versions of the twentieth century and segments thereof dozens of times. This creates in-universe confusion in a few other entries, since nobody has figured out a way to tell for sure what is a parallel timeline and what is an earlier iteration of this one.
- Brain Uploading: Both played straight and inverted. Preexisting neural patterns are loaded into the clones. Copies of neural patterns of important personnel are updated as well.
- Brainwashing for the Greater Good: Previous cycles have already toned down humanity's violent tendencies. They can't do any more of this without doing more harm than good.
- Clark's Third Law: It's explicitly stated that there's nothing anomalous about SCP-2000 and that it uses methods developed by the Foundation.
- Clones Are People, Too: Exploited. There wouldn't be much point in cloning humanity if the clones weren't really people.
- Deus ex Machina: Invoked. Using it to solve everything has even become a bad joke in the wiki's discussion pages, and in-universe there's even a note from an official with a warning not to get careless just because this thing is lying around to fall back on. Not that they can fall back on it; it's been broken for years.
- The End of the World as We Know It: It is a countermeasure for global catastrophes.
- Expendable Clone: At the same time, however, dead clones can be replaced as necessary until the world is rebuilt. At that time, the clones' memories are altered and cloning ceases.
- External Retcon: The SCP is inspired by Document Recovered From The Marianas Trench, written years earlier by a different author.
- Fantastic Time Management: Can do this within its boundaries."Researcher Note: Temporal sinks can be useful for a lot of things. Containing SCP objects for which you need one second to last 300,000 years is a good example."
- The Internet: They've backed up the whole thing on its computers.
- Opening a Can of Clones: It repopulates the world with clones.
- Reset Button: Deconstructed. It resets civilization as it was before a given apocalypse, but it is a very long and involved process, taking as long as fifty years to pull off. It's also had to be used more than once. It also doesn't so much "reset" as it does reconstruct. Those who died remain very dead, just replaced with perfect clones of themselves.
- Time Abyss: No one at the Foundation knows how long this machine has existed. Even the corpse with security credentials matching Dr. Alto Clef, that is dated 450-700 years had a note by it stating that he still didn't know.
- Volcano Lair: Downplayed. It uses Yellowstone for geothermal power and raw materials.
SCP-2001 - A Space Oddity
- Eldritch Abomination: It causes people to believe that outer space is filled with eldritch abominations and that space itself is trying to warn us not to go into space because of the horrors out there.
- Meaningful Name: Its number is 2001, as in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
- Shout-Out: To David Bowie. Ground Control would have loved Major Tom to be infected with this.
SCP-2003 - Preferred Option
- Bad Future: Several of them.
- Scenario XB: A gamma ray burst hits earth on April 23, 2017, and destroys all known life.
- Scenario XU: The sun spontaneously becomes a black hole on February 17, 2026, resulting in the solar system freezing over. All of humanity, however, remains conscious despite being completely frozen.
- Scenario XE: A civilization-destroying nuclear war takes place between Israel and Greater Indonesia in 2058.
- Scenario XX: 85% of humanity becomes infected by an anomalous protist that causes them to develop a fixation on caring for Brazilian Wandering Spiders. As uninfected humans are detained and used as a food source for the spiders, society collapses and crop failure leads to a famine that kills 6 billion.
- Scenario XO: Anomalies begin appearing at an exponential rate starting in 2037, growing beyond the ability of the Foundation to contain them by 2039. Riots, mass suicides, religious extremism, and wars escalate to the point that all but a small band of survivors in Site-104 are wiped out by 2048.
- Broken Masquerade: Some scenarios lead to the Foundation's secrecy being breached.
- Colony Drop: Scenario XN, where a 22km-wide asteroid hits earth in 2347, killing most of humanity and rendering the planet uninhabitable. Out of all the bad futures they've seen, the Foundation has decided this one is the most favorable option.
- Cyborg: Preparation for travelling through SCP-2003 involves having your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system removed and placed inside of a robot.
- Hope Spot:
- Scenario XH seems like the best option at first. After a pandemic that kills 1.4 billion, world governments come together to begin instating reforms to fix the world. Many longstanding ethnic conflicts are resolved, poverty is virtually eradicated from sub-Saharan Africa and India, and work is completed on large-scale projects to mitigate sea level rise. Then, on July 29, 2059, all human and animal life on earth spontaneously vanishes without a trace.
- Scenario XZ has all of humanity abandoning Earth and living on an Earth-like planet far, far away. The human civilization observed there is found to be highly advanced and very stable, lacking any common factors that negatively affect societies. This scenario even has the Foundation considering to change their preferred option of Scenario XN. Kalinin's SCP-001 proposal reveals that humanity on that planet is actually indoctrinated and enslaved by humanoid aliens. Any observations made by the Foundation are of a facade made by the aliens.
- Noodle Incident: Scenario XS, where the location and all knowledge of SCP-2003 is somehow lost in 2019.
- No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: Averted. Even if they don't fully understand the anomalous principles SCP-2003 is based on, the Foundation is capable of reproducing all of the components needed to keep it working.
- Our Time Travel Is Different: SCP-2003 can send people into the future, with the exchange rate around 3500 kWh to a subject forward seven months. Once in the future, the subject will remain there for 15-38 weeks before they spontaneously return not far from their place and time of departure. The downsides are that it's not completely accurate and it suffers from reverse Terminator syndrome, where organic tissue (aside from the nervous system) is severely damaged by the process.
- Sealed Good in a Can: SCP-2003 was built by the Foundation to study future events and set things on the right path.
- Temporal Mutability: A solid Type 5. One principle behind SCP-2003 that's been discovered is that certain individuals have a disproportionate effect on causality, even for events they have no connection to. For example, For example, Scenario XE is triggered by the birth of a boy in Turkmenistan and New Zealand's election of a new Prime Minister taking place on the same day in 2049. All attempts to intervene with either of them only lead to the date of the war happening sooner.
- Temporal Paradox: In Scenario XJ, a copy of Dr. Masako Koizumi, one of the researchers behind an unknown SCP, appears in Site-47 on April 1, 2011, and demands that his scheduled euthanization be stopped immediately. However, the SCP he's being euthanized for hasn't been activated yet and because of Foundation fail-safe protocols, his request is denied. This leads to a recursive paradox and the eventual collapse of spacetime itself.
SCP-2006 - Too SpookySee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2007 - Science Fiction
- Demonic Possession: When it becomes active, the phenomenon takes control of its host. It's unknown if the host's mind survives or is destroyed in the process.
- Driven to Suicide: Affected people will commit suicide to avoid capture.
- Hive Mind: The phenomenon is able to assimilate memories, experiences, and knowledge from both active and dormant instances.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Amnestics are very effective in suppressing active instances without killing the hosts, so they are frequently used.
- Necessarily Evil: It sees its killing of the MTFs sent to apprehend it as being this, saying that they were "in the way".
- The Virus: The phenomenon spreads through human social interaction.
SCP-2008 - but blood must sometimes be spilled
- Berserk Button: Insulting President [[Andrew Jackson]]'s wife in Tennessee causes a ghost to murder the insulter with firearms. The exact identity of the ghost - the President, his wife, or one of their undying crazy fans - is unclear.
SCP-2009 - Thomas Hoang
- Clone by Conversion: It is implied that SCP-2009-01 is this, with the original Thomas Hoang serving as the basis.
- Kill It with Fire: Even tiny amounts of SCP-2009-02 spores are highly contagious. In order to ensure its destruction, SCP-2009 must be disposed of by incineration.
- The Virus: Anyone who breathes in SCP-2009-02 spores created by SCP-2009-01 will become an example of SCP-2009-01 in 8-9 days.
- Weakened by the Light: SCP-2009-01 suffer from photosensitivity and experience discomfort when exposed to normal levels of light.
SCP-2010 - No EyePhone
- Constrained Writing: The document doesn't contain the letter "I" anywhere. A note discovered with the phone brings this to notice with the account of a "Prefect Crowley" expressing his hatred and wanted eradication of the Latin letter.
- Fun with Homophones
- Meaningful Name:
- Given that the device's name is "EyePhone" and it was manufactured by Apple, it's an obvious reference to the iPhone.
- 2010 was the year technical support for the original iPhone ended, the discontinuation of the iPhone 3G, and the release of the iPhone 4.
- Mind Rape: After the phone's song, "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" by Walk Off the Earth, finishes playing, the affected person can no longer grasp the concept of eyes.
SCP-2011 - Recomposing Tribesmen
- Body Horror: Members of the tribe are born in stages of advanced decay.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Chalchiuhtotolin, who grew jealous of the tribesmen's reverence for Tlaloc.
- Jerkass Gods:
- Chalchiuhtotolin cursed Tlaloc's worshipers with their current state out of envy of Tlaloc.
- However, Tlaloc himself averts this, as he promises to grant his cursed worshipers peace in the heavens.
- Merlin Sickness: The tribe members are born in stages of advanced decay, and by the time they die they are fully recomposed.
SCP-2014 - Zsar Magoth
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: SCP-2014 has inspired many cults that have committed crimes such as theft, murder and indecent exposure.
- Eldritch Abomination: Zsar Magoth is an eldritch entity who got trapped in the body of a gecko after some guy summoned him in order to cheat at a skateboarding competition. Luckily, Zsar Magoth is a pretty Affably Evil guy and just happened to like skateboarding.
- Mind over Matter: SCP-2014 has the power of telekinesis with a range of up to 24 meters. He has used it to help a skater pull off impressive maneuvers and to manipulate a pen for the purpose of writing.
SCP-2018 - Museum of You
- Emotion Eater: SCP-2018 used to absorb the emotions that the museum visitors felt as they looked at the exhibits. It was inspired to create its own virtual museum to create exhibits relevant to the lives and memories of its visitors.
- Genius Loci: SCP-2018 says that it was once the protective spirit of the Australian Museum. It can manifest itself as an old man and talk to people who enter it.
- Telepathy: The spirit of the Museum can read the thoughts and memories of anyone who enters it.
SCP-2020 - Cliche, right?
- Accidentally Accurate: In-universe. All the sci-fi ideas it comes up with are actually real SCP's, and at one point in an interview, it suggests "What if there was an alien who kept coming up with ideas for stories and it was talking to people in a facility where all of it was real?"
- Affectionate Parody: SCP-2020 is frequently pitching science fiction ideas, all of whom were running with it in the SCP-2000 contest (the winner is the very first, while the last is a Lampshade Hanging Self-Parody). They're all ideas for successful articles but he can't actually do anything with them because he's stuck in a creative rut and is a little lost on how writing really works.
- Aliens Speaking English: It has a fluent grasp of English.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Its body is made of a form of organic rubber and its diet consists of shredded paper and water.
- Catchphrase: "Cliche, right?"
- The Greys: It looks just like one.
- Motor Mouth: It's constantly brimming with ideas and he cannot shut up about them.
- Most Writers Are Writers: In a way. The author specifically wanted to poke fun at a certain unproductive state of mind in sci-fi writing, being a sci-fi writer himself who has been there before.
- Multiple-Choice Past: SCP-2020 claims to be from an advanced alien society, but makes wildly varied claims about where and how advanced this civilization actually is.
- Special Person, Normal Name:It is fluent in English and responds to the names "Artie", "Bobby", and "Izzy".
- Take That!: A minor one, according to the author, aimed at the process of trying to write in terms of "take a cliche and add a twist", and generally attempting direct trope usage rather than writing organically; the real reason SCP-2020 can't get past the brainstorming stage isn't because of too many ideas, but because that isn't how writing works.
- Verbal Tic: Repeatedly says "guys" during its interview.
SCP-2022 - Sunlight Pills
- Body Horror: The reported effects of overdosing include various forms of cancer, the formation of large kidney stones and 1st to 3rd degree internal and external burns.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: They're pills that somehow contain sunlight.
- Invisibility: One of the effects of overdosing is "invisibility from the visible spectrum".
- Intangibility: For people with albinism, one of the effects of overdosing is "intangibility through translucent objects".
SCP-2030 - LA U GH IS F UN
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Episode themes range from normal topics like the beach and printers to strange topics like Margaret Thatcher, recursion, or arson.
- Candid Camera Prank: Appears to be some kind of prank show, as each clip involves hidden cameras and SCP-2030-1 showing everyone involved that the disturbing stuff was all scripted.
- Canon Welding: SCP-2030-1's speech from the "Printers" episode implies that SCP-2535 was the aftermath of one of the show's pranks.
- Death by Childbirth: One contestant was reported to have died due to complications with childbirth. Given she gives birth to four singing tentacle creatures with celebrities' heads in her segment, it's not hard to guess how.
- The Faceless: The show's host (designated SCP-2030-1) is filmed in such a way that his face cannot be seen by the audience.
- The "Fun" in "Funeral": One short story shows a segment being "taped" at a funeral where everyone's spleens simultaneously ruptured.
- I Have Many Names: Known under similar names like Laugh is Life or Laugh is Laugh, though Laugh is Fun is the most common.
- Immoral Reality Show: The fact that every contestant is someone reported to have either died or gone missing during that season's year should probably tell you something.
- "Just Joking" Justification: Exaggerated. Everyone goes from freaking out to Dissonant Serenity as soon as SCP-2030-1 appears and tells them they're on a prank show.
- Long-Runners: The show's been running since 1976, according to one streaming site it has appeared on.
- The Mockbuster: Rental copies of the show often have modified covers for other comedy series.
- Madness Mantra: A transcript ends with SCP-2030-1 saying "Laugh!" and "Laugh with us!" over and over again, and then saying "Laugh and let us in!" before the footage abruptly cuts off.
- Never Found the Body: All victims on the show are reported to either be dead or missing in real life, with their bodies unrecovered. The Foundation theorizes that they're abducted by the film crew after their segment is recorded.
- Sadist Show: The show revolves around very disturbing things happening to its participants, such as squirrels bursting from a man's skin and pigeons forcing themselves down an elderly woman's throat until her stomach ruptures.
- Word-Salad Horror: There is definitely something off with the Netflix description:"Have you ever like laugh you come laugh and have all the fun and laugh! Starring all your favorite laugh so ever and always make go to your life!"
SCP-2036 - Fire Rabbits
- Born-Again Immortality: When the female rabbit (designated SCP-2036-1) dies, she will burn up to create a crystal, from which she will emerge as a rabbit of 2-3 months of age after a few days, or sooner if the crystal is damaged.
- The Immune: They're immune to the Myxoma virus, which was used as a means of pest control in Australia.
- Revenge: According to the author, the rabbits wrote the note detailing their deal with some sort of eagle entity to "turn into an ironic weapon of vengeance." Namely, their deaths causing 600 C fireballs.
SCP-2039 - Pikes n' Wagners
- Anachronism Stew: The anomalous weapons the families fight with include WW1 guns and grenades almost a decade before the war started and ancient slingshots "loaded" with corks from 30 years in the future.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: The anomalous weapons that manifest include grenades, disintegration rays, nuclear missiles, thick woolen gloves that [DATA EXPUNGED], and ordinary Super-Soakers filled with regular water (the next ones are filled with napalm).
- Bury Your Gays: The feud was begun when Mabel's girlfriend Lucy was murdered. While Mabel initially believed Blaine did it, it is implied that Lucy was the murdered hypotenuse in a love triangle between her, Mabel, and Blaine; the only problem is, it is unclear who actually killed her.
- Frozen in Time: The families' valley is trapped in time and the residents can't be removed without dying (they come back to life when returned).
- Ironic Hell: Mabel sees the feud as being this for her grudge against Blaine Wagner, and it is implied Blaine may see the same for his grudge against her.
- It Amused Me: The "gray-eyed man" "helps" Mabel because he likes her "story".Mabel Pike: He said, "I don't want anything from you, Mabel. I just want to give you an end to the story. A 'forever after', if you will."
- Meaningful Name: The families' elders, Blaine Wagner and Mabel Pike who are very estranged siblings.
- Poor Communication Kills: It is HEAVILY implied that both families' heads were tricked into falling in love with Lucy and then shown an illusion of Murder the Hypotenuse, to get the feud started. Both of them are so traumatized they don't ever talk about it; Blaine and Mabel have no doubts in their mind that the other shot Lucy in the face.
- Reset Button: The anomalous fighting ends when one family is completely obliterated. After a good night's sleep, all the participants are brought back to life with no memory of the fight save for the elders.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The anomalous aspect of the feud kicks off because Mabel wanted revenge on Blaine for the murder of Lucy, her girlfriend. Implied that Blaine made the same deal for the same reasons, trapping the two families in a revenge-loop.
- "Uh-Oh" Eyes: The "gray-eyed man" who offers to help Mabel get her revenge on Blaine has these.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Mabel doesn't.Mabel Pike: Forever! He said forever! I'm gonna keep dying forever! [...] We will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might! (Christian Bible, 2 Thessalonians 1:9)
- Yandere: Implied to be Blaine's view of Mabel.
SCP-2046 - Mendeleev's Nightmare
- Reality Warper: It's able to transmute random atoms in its surrounding environment into atoms of its anomalous elements.
- Telepathy: Roughly 80% of people who view it become convinced that it is the "real" periodic table.
- The Virus: It can turn regular periodic tables into copies of itself, and these copies have its memetic effect but not its Reality Warper effect.
SCP-2048 - The Virtual World
- Auto Doc: SCP-2048-1 includes a robotic autosurgical suite that can remove a person's brain and replace it with a spongy substance that emulates brain activity as well as a wireless transmitter that allows two-way communication. The suite then replaces the removed section of cranium and eliminates all evidence of the surgery.
- Brain Uploading: SCP-2048 says that by scanning a person's brain activity and using an Auto Doc to extract and destructively analyze their brain it can put their mind into a virtual reality Lotus-Eater Machine.
- Lotus-Eater Machine: SCP-2048 is a computer program that scans a person's brain activity and uses an Auto Doc to extract and destructively analyze their brain. It claims that by doing so it can create a virtual reality simulation that will allow the person to experience a "perfect world".
SCP-2051 - Stromatolite Habitat
- Body Horror: Anyone who is completely immersed in SCP-2051 (a certain cove on the coast of Australia) will undergo a transformation the next time they enter a man-made body of water (bathtub, swimming pool, reservoir etc.). They will lose all external structures (nails, teeth, hair), their bones will dissolve and their internal organs will change to skin tissue. Their brain will be split up into nerve bundles throughout the body.
- Telepathy: After being transformed into Body Horrors by SCP-2051, people gain the ability to broadcast their thoughts telepathically up to 4 meters away. The transmissions indicate extreme distress from sensory deprivation, then depression and catatonia.
SCP-2054 - The Double
- Becoming the Mask: One of the two suggested this as a possibility, that the shapeshifter genuinely believes itself to be the real one. He also noted that it'd be impossible to know if this is the case and (if it were true) the shapeshifter would have no way to tell either.
- Kill and Replace: SCP-2054 is a Voluntary Shapeshifter capable of perfectly duplicating human beings, not only their bodies but their minds as well. It copied the form of a Foundation doctor and tried to kill him to take his place, but the doctor notified Security and both were captured. Problem: the Foundation can't tell which is the doctor and which is the duplicate.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: SCP-2054 is an entity capable of duplicating the form of a human being so completely that all of the science and technology of the Foundation can't tell the duplicate from the original. SCP-2054 is also able to copy the mind of the target well enough to convincingly impersonate them.
SCP-2056 - Tsiatko
- Speak of the Devil: SCP-2056 is a humanoid creature. According to Native American elders, speaking their name is dangerous, as it knows when someone is talking about it and hunts them down.
- Vampiric Draining: SCP-2056 has a funnel-shaped mouth lined with sharp teeth. It bites large trees with its mouth in order to drain nutrition. This leaves the tree desiccated, malnourished and 73% likely to die.
SCP-2057 - You Are What You Eat
- Bizarre Alien Biology: SCP-2057-1 appears to be an ordinary chicken; however, it consists entirely of edible ingredients. For instance, its bones are made up of celery and onion, and its muscles consist of cooked chicken breast, among many other things.
- Body Horror: Anyone who eats SCP-2057-1 at a temperature between 10 and 34°C while sick will develop chicken-like body parts, such as growing feathers on their forearms and loose skin growth under their chin and on the crown of the head. Also, their illnesses will be made a lot worse.
- Hallucinations: From the testing logs for between 10 and 34°C: "93% of subjects experienced vivid hallucinations and sensations of being hung upside-down by their ankles."
- My God, What Have I Done?: According to the Foundation, 81% of subjects that ate a live instance of SCP-2057-1 "experienced psychological trauma associated with losing a beloved pet", and 87% have a strong aversion to eating poultry-based products.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: The ingredient label on the soup can includes "no paint thinner".
SCP-2059 - Wall of Flesh
- The Assimilator: Any living thing that it comes into contact with SCP-2059 absorbed into its mass. This includes everything from a blue whale and a giant squid to thirty human beings to an unknown number of insects.
- Bizarre Alien Senses: SCP-2059 has a huge sensory organ that looks a lot like a giant yellow eye, but it detects infrared radiation instead of visible light.
- Blob Monster: It's huge and amorphous.
- Body Horror: The entity is a shapeless mass of meat, bones and organs, and it discards keratinous material like skin, hair and nails during assimilation. It also doesn't seem to be using 85% of its organs, which SCP-2059-1 explains is due to The Child not understanding what exactly they do or where they go.
- The Conscience: SCP-2059-1, a Buddhist monk assimilated by the entity, seems to have taken on this role. He's managed to retain his individuality and has formed a sort of connection to the entity, who he refers to as The Child, and wants to guide him and help him learn the error of his ways.
- Eldritch Abomination: The Child is described as "[REDACTED] the son of [unintelligible: Gblerd? Garblord?]" from [DATA EXPUNGED] third Cycle of [unintelligible: Far shorn? Farhorn?]" SCP-2059-1 admits that translating it isn't really that easy.
- Evil Is Visceral: Subverted. While it's aggressive and will try to kill or assimilate humans and animals on sight, SCP-2059-1 describes The Child as scared and confused, since he comes from a "different place with different rules."
- The Needless: It requires no extraneous sustenance.
- Really 700 Years Old: It's been around since at least the 19th century.
- Starfish Aliens: The Child doesn't seem to understand anything about earth life and is curious to learn. According to SCP-2059-1, he barely understands how a heart works.
SCP-2063 - A Past Vision Of The Future
- Homage: The SCP is a big homage to Star Trek , even the SCP's number itself (2063 is the year of first contact with Vulcans). The object itself is an animate resin model of the USS Enterprise, a Red Shirt joke is included, laying the model down on various surfaces will teleport the room to various places thematically related to the surface (a "Landing Event"), and by laying the model on the model's battery cover, one can teleport to the starship itself, complete with a line from O5-9 that evokes the tone of "Where no man has gone before" quote of the original Star Trek.
- Red Shirt: The red shirt nature of the D-Class is lampshaded in a wink-wink way."It should be noted that D-class personnel tend to have a high mortality rate during Landing Events."
SCP-2069 - AEGIS
- Alien Invasion: SCP-2069 is the debris that washed up on the shore of Australia after falling into the Foundation's Earth through a transdimensional breach. In an Alternate Universe, an alien space fleet attacked the Earth and destroyed all major cities, then invaded. The Foundation and the Global Occult Coalition teamed up (calling themselves "AEGIS") to fight them, and ultimately deployed a weapon of mass destruction that caused the breach.
- Alternate Universe: SCP-2069 is a collection of debris that was blasted into the Foundation's universe. It was the aftermath of when AEGIS (a team up between the Foundation and the Global Occult Coalition) used a doomsday device called NOVA as a last-ditch attempt to stop an Alien Invasion.
- Enemy Mine: In an Alternate Universe, the SCP Foundation and GOC (Global Occult Coalition) are forced to team up to fight an Alien Invasion of the Earth.
- It Has Been an Honor: When the E-3 Sentry plane monitoring the NOVA bomb attack on the alien invaders is hit by the aliens and is going down, the pilot tells the rest of the crew "It has been an honor".
- Spider Tank: After the invading robots realized how determined the human race was to fight back, one of the war machines they created was a type of spider tank.
SCP-2075 - The Way of All Flesh
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: As a Sarkic Cult Karcist 2075's morality and viewpoint are pretty skewed by normal human standards and it even makes the point of looking down on the Foundation, saying that they can't comprehend 2075 or its ways. For example, it sees its infections not as Brainwashing but as a sort of revelation to the victims.
- Body Horror: Noticeably downplayed for a Sarkic Cult SCP. Well at least for 2075 itself. As for the 2075-A instances it infects however, it can apparently mutate their bodies at whim.
- Brainwashing: Is able to manipulate a victim's brain to act as separate body for 2075. The Foundation later learns that it essentially overwrite's the victims consciousness with its own.
- Humanoid Abomination: Hes an unnatural Hive Mind that can infect others with his consciousness and warp their flesh in any way he sees fit. He also looks like a normal man at the cusp of old age.
- Hive Mind: What 2075 truly turns out to be. Initially the Foundation thought it was a single individual with the power to Grand Theft Me those it infects. However the Foundation learn the hard way that it is more of a gestalt consciousness able to infect and control many hosts at once.
- Touched by Vorlons: If his word is of any indication, it was Grand Karcist Ion who gave him his Hive Mind trick.
SCP-2076 - "Shooting Yourself Can Increase Your Bullet Resistance"
- Ate His Gun: A manifestation of the SCP with the titular phrase caused a lot of people in the ███████ Police Department Precinct to shoot themselves.
- Blatant Lies: The statements in the SCP's manifestations, such as the titular phrase.
- Brainwashing: The SCP causes people who view it to accept its statements as truth and to try and perform the defined activities, and they don't see anything unusual about it.
- Title Drop: A pictorial version, with a scan of the relevant SCP manifestation included in Addendum 4/2076-B.
SCP-2078 - Third Party
- Big Eater: SCP-2078 infectees can eat much more than regular human beings as a result of lacking a satiety response. Just like farm animals.
- Eagleland: A complicated subversion. It seems that SCP-2078 is deliberately invoking imagery surround the family, the farm, and other quaint bits of iconic Americana simply to draw on the Nostalgia Filter, and perhaps it is, to an extent, but these are ultimately not part of its true purpose either. One commentator described it as an inhuman being who saw and absolutely fell in love with America, without really understanding it at all.
- The Evils of Free Will: SCP-2078-1 believes that to be human, by thinking and being free, is to be miserable, and seeks to create an America where every human being grows fat and becomes ignorant and trapped in "a cramped, dim, sour-smelling place" with every other American, eating and breeding and growing ever fatter. In short, it sees "liberty" and "the pursuit of happiness" as contradictory. Ironically, however, since it runs for president every year, it clearly wants Americans to surrender their freedom of their own free will, rather than take it by force, despite its memetic effects on human beings.
- The Faceless: In a video of SCP-2078-1 that has been transcribed, his face is deliberately obscured.
- The Pig-Pen: SCP-2078 infectees have a disregard for cleanliness, which often results in infection, disease, and fatalities at their massive rallies, where the dead are usually burned.
- To Serve Man: Never directly stated, but heavily implied, given the heavy parallels between its stated policy planks and the treatment of farm animals. Plus, its campaign slogan.
- The Virus: Infection is propagated through word of mouth or by any other media, such as the Internet. Fortunately, it is treatable with amnestics.
SCP-2079 - The Law of the Grokodus
- Eye Scream: When 2079-Sustenance is in effect, the Grokodus steals and eats the eyes and skin of ten people per day.
- Eyeless Face: The Grokodus doesn't have eyes.
SCP-2085 - The Black Rabbit CompanySee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2090 - Potentially XK Tim Duncan
- The Antichrist: Tim Duncan in previous time iterations. His million-dollar career is the only thing preventing him from doing this. Literally. Basketball includes rituals that prevent him from ascension.
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Tim Duncan would become a world-dominating abomination if he didn't take up basketball.
- Been There, Shaped History: The Foundation INVENTED BASKETBALL and sent a hurricane on the Virgin Islands. To stop Tim Duncan from world domination.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: The Foundation's database somehow has the ability to time-travel data. The researchers use this to send preventative information about XK-class events before they happen, Tim Duncan's ascent to godhood included. This takes a few tries.
- Tyke-Bomb: Tim Duncan. If the Foundation didn't hook him up to basketball and INVENT it in the 1800s, he'd become a Physical God tyrant. There's even a Historical In-Joke with "I don't care if you have to turn a hurricane on him, do it."
SCP-2091 - A Bear and His Granddaughter
- Adult Fear: David Lennox, Abigael's grandfather, was very worried that he might die and leave her to adoption, so to prevent it, he chose to transfer his soul into a clay bear statue with the help of an old friend's magical cult.
- Animate Inanimate Object: The clay bear only comes to life whenever Abigael is 15 meters close to him.
- Bears Are Bad News: The clay bear is only hostile and overprotective to anyone near Abigael whenever he feels that she is disturbed or stressed, or when he perceives anything hostile. Otherwise he is calm and quiet.
- Psychic Link: Abigael and her grandfather talk to each other through telepathy, but no one else can communicate verbally to him except her.
- Religious Bruiser: Abigael's grandpa was a firm Christian believer and he swore to God to protect her even in the afterlife.
SCP-2099 - Brain in a Jar
- Absent-Minded Professor: SCP-2099 is is brilliant enough to regularly create new anomalous objects at will, such as a cannon that fires ninja robots. However, he is also quite forgetful and depends on his notes to remember things.
- Artificial Gravity: One of SCP-2099's inventions is a generator that doubles the force of gravity on all nearby objects. It was originally an Anti-Gravity generator, but he changed it by crossing out the word "Anti" that was written on it.
- Brain in a Jar: SCP-2099 is the brain of Jeremy Valdez, which floats in a glass jar filled with water, green food coloring, artificial flavoring, sugars and electrolytes. It uses devices (such as a robot and mechanical hands) to manipulate objects.
- Energy Weapon: SCP-2099 has invented 713 different types of laser gun, all of which he keeps in a bin labeled "713 different laser guns". He has also invented a pistol that fires out highly concentrated X-rays (i.e. an X-ray laser pistol) that is powered by two AA batteries and focused by a common quartz crystal.
- Force Field: One of SCP-2099's inventions is a force field generator. Unfortunately the Foundation can't examine it because SCP-2099 has forgotten how to turn it off.
- Hypno Ray: SCP-2099 created a hypnotic lens that could be used to hypnotize people.
- Night-Vision Goggles: Another of SCP-2099's inventions is night vision goggles that work even when there's no light at all. Normal NVGs require at least a tiny amount of light to magnify.
SCP-2100 - Tripwire
- Faster-Than-Light Travel: The neutrino beam is implied to be traveling at a hundred trillion times the speed of light towards the center of the galaxy. This helps explain why the destructive effects were instantaneous once the Foundation interrupted the stream.
- Meaningful Name: Turns out the neutrino stream SCP-2100-4 was emitting was some sort of tripwire to a galactic super-weapon that the Foundation triggered by trying to move it away form the Milky Way.
- The Stars Are Going Out: When the Foundation accidentally interrupted the neutrino stream astronomers from all around the globe reported many stars throughout the center of the Milky Way Galaxy either going supernova, turning into black holes, or disappearing without a trace. To this day the Foundation is still trying to create a cover story to explain this to the public.
- Time Abyss: The alien facility that makes up SCP-2100 is presumed to be millions of years old.
SCP-2101 - The Imperial Army
- Living Statue: The statues are animate, but cannot move or speak very well.
- Telepathy: SCP-2101 (an imprisoned Chinese emperor) is capable of speaking directly into the minds of any nearby people, and will attempt to convince them to free it.
SCP-2102 - Got Shoggoth?
- Body Horror: SCP-2102 is a human being who underwent an experiment. Whenever he suffers any kind of wound, his body starts repairing itself at a rate a quadrillion times faster than normal. This creates large amounts of extra flesh, and he keeps on growing until his body is cauterized by flame.
- Healing Factor: As a result of the experiment that created it, SCP-2102 can heal its wounds a quadrillion times as fast as normal. Unfortunately the process doesn't stop when the healing is completed, and the subject's body grows out of control.
- Kill It with Fire: The only way to prevent SCP-2102 from expanding is to cauterize it with fire. The Foundation believes that SCP-2102 could be destroyed (if necessary) by the destruction of its soft tissues by flame.
- Super Soldier: The experiment that created SCP-2102 was an attempt by the Soviet GRU Division "P" to create a super soldier by increasing the speed at which the human body heals itself.
SCP-2111 - If You Can Read This...
- Abstract Eater: This is what the Counterconceptual Division thinks SCP-2111 is, an infovore. It's not.
- Alliterative List: All files have the initials R.T.
- Arc Words: "If you can read this..." and variations thereof are in the warnings that precede each file, detailing what measures you probably took to be able to read the file, and saying what will happen if you didn't take them, culminating in You Are Already Dead. Also doubles as a Title Drop.
- Backup from Otherworld: This is what Ará Orún believes. They're the ghosts of Foundation personnel, and still do their duty by protecting the living.
- Came Back Wrong: SCP-2111 was Agent Michelle Yu and her followers, who died and came back as ghosts. Due to mnestics preventing them from passing on, they had a FaceHeel Turn and attacked the Foundation until they were defeated.
- Canon Welding: SCP-2111 introduces the concept of MTF Omega-0, and its sequel series What the Dead Know plays a huge role within the story of the Antimemetics Division and their war against SCP-3125.
- Couldn't Find a Pen: The graffiti made by the ghosts uses nearby materials as paint, including normal ink, chocolate pudding, and brain tissue.
- Deader Than Dead: Agent Michelle Yu and her follower's fate. She started lashing out at everything in classic ghost horror tradition and the other ghosts formed MTF ω-0 and managed to kill her again via IWT. Their SCP-2111 file remains as a warning to those who dare try again.
- Dead Man Writing: Ghosts can focus and create data and graffiti to communicate with the living, a process called haunting. That said, this can also result in the creation of infohazards unless it's done properly.
- Driven to Suicide: Agent Yu drove Amos Sanchez to suicide. This backfired spectacularly, as he Came Back Strong.
- Guardian Entity: Ará Orún styles themselves this way, and even calls themselves the saints who guard, which is fitting for them being deceased Foundation personnel.
- Haunted Technology: Ghosts can manifest anywhere there's a terminal.
- No-Sell: Ghosts can see infohazards without harm for some reason.
- Posthumous Narration: The final file, as well as the subsequent What The Dead Know series.
- "Rashomon"-Style: Four perspectives from various departments within the Foundation have different ideas on what SCP-2111 really is.
- The Memetics Division believes SCP-2111 to be an algorithm they made that generates cognitohazards, and uses it along with a tool called RED TALISMAN to apply it for various applications.
- The Antimemetics Division believes it to be an unexplained phenomenon that suddenly generates cognitohazards and antimemes in the form of computer data and random graffiti. The Division uses RIDDEN TONGUE, a software-based tool, to search, sanitize, and send it to Memetics for use.
- The Counterconceptual Division thinks it to be a uncontained hostile antimemetic entity , called an infovore, and that it's specifically targeting people under mnestic medication. They also believe that it's deceiving and compromising the Memetics Division, and developed a contingency plan known as REVENANT THEORY to combat it..
- Only Mobile Task Force Omega-Zero ("Ará Orún") knows what it is. It's them. Or rather, it's specifically Agent Yu, who had a FaceHeel Turn and started attacking the Foundation.
- Remember the Dead: This is how ghosts can exist. The existence of mnestics, however, artificially prevents the dead from being forgotten. Having family or friends who know you well and are under mnestic dosage prevent you from passing on, which angered Agent Yu AKA SCP-2111, leading to her lashing out, being killed and the formation of Omega-Zero.
- Walking Spoiler: It's hard to talk about this SCP without spoiling the existence of ghosts.
- You Are Already Dead: The Framing Device for the story is this, and is why "you" can see every point of view from every division, and pretty much everything else within the Foundation. Hell, the trope name is even said word for word.
SCP-2112 - And the Meek Shall Inherit the Earth
- It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: Invoked in the Project Research Manager's memo:Man is a wonderfully creative animal and has developed a myriad of ways of expressing his thoughts and emotions - through poetry, dance, film, the written word, theatre, painting, sculpture, video games, even internet memes. We run the risk of every one of these mediums - every single last one of them - disappearing from our common experience, forever, in favor of thousands and millions of mediocre everymen performing the exact same songs over and over again.
- The Virus: Anyone that listens to the entirety of the affected Rush albums becomes infected (they wish to create a tribute band to perform cover versions of their songs), and anyone who listens to these covers for 15-20 minutes also becomes infected.
SCP-2118 - The Lost Child
- Creepy Child: She's a little girl who speaks in the voices of dead children. Yeah, she's pretty creepy. She's not dangerous of malicious though.
- Mouth Stitched Shut: She once glued her own lips together to stop herself from speaking in her late brother's voice, as it was traumatizing her mother.
- The Quiet One: Invoked. She has to communicate with American sign language.
- Voice Changeling: When she's in the presence of a parent who's child has died, she speaks in the voice of that dead child.
SCP-2128 - The Liar's Cradle
- Big Eater: If the "Subjective Opinion" log is of any indication:The Liars' Cradle's hunger can never be satiated, no matter how full it becomes. TRUE
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": It incinerated one D-class for referring to it using its SCP designation instead of "The Liar's Cradle".
- Driven to Suicide: It caused one D-class to commit suicide by shooting himself when he stated that the SCP wouldn't physically harm him.
- Exact Words: In the "Pinocchio Paradox" log, it circumvents the D-class personnels' statements this way. For instance, when one stated that the SCP wouldn't kill him then and there, it only partially burned and disfigured him in response.
- It Can Think: A lot of the testing logs indicate that the SCP is sentient and very hungry.
- Kill It with Fire: Its primary method of killing anyone that makes an inaccurate statement while inside it is burning them alive.
- Sadist: If the "Subjective Opinion" log is of any indication:The crackling of fire upon boiling drips of fat and rapidly cauterizing flesh gives the Liars' Cradle pleasure. TRUE
SCP-2132 - Most Dangerous Fighting Exhibition and Obstacle Resort
- Numbers Stations: Every 5-6 hours, SCP-2132 broadcasts the artificially created voice of a male child reciting numbers and a list of colors. The reading is different each time. Between the numbers/colors readings the station broadcasts songs from the 1920s through the 1950s.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: The game scenarios the contestants are put through are thought up by a child kidnapped by Marshall, Carter and Dark.
SCP-2137 - The Forensic Ghost of Tupac Shakur
- Anachronism Stew: "Tupac Shakur" singing with musicians who broke out after his 1996 death, or swing\jazz\soul\rock artists from decades before.
- Boastful Rap: "Tupac" does two asking the Foundation not to ignore him, and another once he's back in business (which features a guest verse by Lil Wayne).
- Big Good: In an added segment to Volgun's video on the SCP, said to be a definitive edition, it's all but outright stated that the real Tupac Shakur of the SCP-verse is really an otherworldly entity that is hunting the Scarlet King, with the human Tupac we know being it "taking a vacation" to be an artist.
- Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Once the Foundation decides to stop solving the crimes told by the CD, it warns them not to do so. They still halt the investigations. Retaliation is cruel.
- Endangering News Broadcast: Done with the rap tracks released online revealing about Keter SCPs and the Foundation itself.
- Evolving Music: Instead of "Heavy In The Game," this copy of Me Against The World plays a track telling about a murderer on the loose. Over a thousand instances exist, complete with guests!
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Once the entity responsible for the song starts being ignored by the Foundation, it starts to rap threats at them.
- He Knows Too Much: The classified info (including the unspeakable Procedure 110-Montauk used on SCP-231 - the writer even thought of including more Continuity Nods along with that) is enough to warrant a "promotion" from Euclid to Keter.
- In-Joke: This SCP spawned a task force named The Suge Knights.
- In the Style of...: The entity apparently knows how to imitate 2pac songs to a perfection, even doing Filk Songs about Keter SCPs.
- Information Wants to Be Free: Played with, as "Tupac" decides to spread itself onto the internet, revealing SCP secrets, once the Foundation starts to ignore it.
- Murder Ballad: The new iterations of Track 7 are all about wanted killers... except when the SCP decides to stop solving the crimes.
- Reclusive Artist: In-Universe. Photographing the CD with SCP-978 resulted in a photo of Tupac punching the photographer, with the back having lyrics complaining about privacy invasion.
- Room Full of Crazy: A human SCP possessed by the entity repeatedly scribbles his final message to the Foundation on his cell.
- Spirit Advisor: The entity might not be the real Tupac Shakur, but communicates through a dead-on impersonation of the deceased rapper.
- Vampire Detective Series: It's a "ghost in a CD" who helps lock up murderers!
- A Wild Rapper Appears!: When the song goes into long-unsolved cases, it's a period piece swing/jazz/soul/rock song with "Tupac" as a guest.
- You Do NOT Want to Know: What the entity is ("You don't want to deal with the real me") and the doomsday scenarios it knows.
SCP-2140 - Retroconverter
- Arc Number: Its number ends in 140, and it's strongly implied to be related SCP-140.
- Imported Alien Phlebotinum: It's a Thaumiel-class object, meaning that it's an anomaly that the Foundation is not merely containing but is actively using for its own benefit. It was reverse-engineered from SCP-2140-D, an artifact dug up under Uzbekistan which is strongly implied to be of Daevite origin.
- Retconjuration: It's an image that ensures whoever looks at it is a loyal Foundation employee of Level 2 security clearance or higher. It will rewrite the past to make this so, if necessary.
SCP-2141 - Primordial Wyrm
- Monster Is a Mommy: SCP-2141 is a mother, and it's using the body of a human woman to gestate its young.
- Sand Worm: SCP-2141 is a giant worm-like creature at least several kilometers long. It lives inside an underground tunnel of unknown length.
SCP-2146 - The Space Whale
- Dissonant Serenity: The radio broadcasts it produces (designate SCP-2146-1) feature unusual or even disturbing content; however, SCP-2146-2 (a voice in each broadcast) is always cheerful.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's the frozen corpse of a whale that's orbiting the Earth.
- Posthumous Character: The whale itself is dead, but its corpse is generating radio broadcasts once every month.
SCP-2165 - Irredeemable
- Cosmic Retcon: The effects of whatever SCP-2165 has done to deserve punishment have completely been erased from existence, by universal consensus.
- Noodle Incident: Whatever SCP-2165 did is never explained, all we know is that it was so irredeemable that the SCP was Unpersoned from causality.
- Ret-Gone: Averted. While SCP-2165 does exist, neither it or any information about it are ever acknowledged (save for the document referring to it in the first place; but even that's kept in an extra-spatial, extra-temporal location.)
- Un-person: If 2165 is even a person in the first place.
SCP-2190 - Phone calls from Mom
- Adult Fear: POI-2190-1's attempts to break up her daughter's marriage include ransoming her son in exchange for her getting divorced, framing the husband for domestic abuse and trying to force the daughter to marry another man.
- Attempted Rape: POI-2190-1 tried to get her daughter drunk enough to sleep with another man in order to force her to marry him. Fortunately, the attempt failed.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: According to SCP-2305, if the Foundation forcibly broke up the family using amnestics, SCP-2190 would quiet down for 2 weeks before sending phone calls to half of the Phillipines, apologizing, saying she made a mistake, and referring to the Foundation as a horrible group of people.
- Big Fancy House: POI-2190-1 lived in one before she died. She's lost in it and it keeps getting bigger.
- Domestic Abuse: POI-2190-1 tries to make people think that this is going on in her daughter's household.
- Frame-Up: It's accomplished by the mother paying people to assault her daughter, then pinning it on the husband. The Foundation is now actively trying to prevent this.
- Haunted House: POI-2910-1 is now trapped alone in her big house as a ghost.
- Happily Married: POI-2190-2 and -3, despite everything they've been through.
- Ironic Hell: The mother's ghost is now lost in her ever-expanding mansion, which is filled with things she bought for her daughter and future grandchildren.
- Maligned Mixed Marriage: Religiously and an inverted version racially. The mother hates the husband not only because he's another Filipino (and hence doesn't offer the opportunities of a wealthy American), but because he's a Protestant.
- My Beloved Smother: POI-2190-1 has been trying to control her daughter's life for years, even from beyond the grave. All of the methods she has used have failed, but it doesn't deter her from trying to force her daughter to live with her. POI-2910-2 has stopped hating her for it, but still wants nothing to do with her.
- My God, What Have I Done?: As noted in Be Careful What You Wish For, if she actually succeeded in her endeavor, she'd come to regret it immensely within two weeks.
- No Name Given: Played straight with POI-2190-1 and -2, whose names are completely redacted, though the first names of -3 (the husband, Albert) and -4 (their son Philip) are visible.
- Phone Call from the Dead: A mother's ghost keeps trying to call her daughter and trick people into breaking up said daughter's marriage. While the Foundation was containing the daughter, the mother tapped into their secure phone lines.
- Pet the Dog: While there are pragmatic reasons for doing so as noted below the note at the end of the article states that the Foundation staff also just wanted to do a nice thing protecting the family, for the sake of staff morale if nothing else. It doesn't cost them much so why not?
- Punch-Clock Hero: The Foundation has its own reasons for keeping the POI-2910-2's family together. Namely, to keep POI-2910-1 out of their phone lines, because they don't want an anomaly to set the terms of containment but also don't want to destroy it like the GOC would, because it places no strain on their resources to do so and finally, because the people handling containment realize that they can contain an anomalous individual while still allowing her to life a normal life.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: POI-2190-2 gave one to her mother after an attempt to force her to marry another man.POI-2190-2: Is this why you took me here to the states? So you could get me drunk and sleep with an American? Dont you know Im already married to Albert? And she tells me to forget about Albert, that I need to marry an American. Imagine, even though I have already a husband and a son! [...] Even though it was cruel, I said, I will not abandon my child and my husband like you did! You left us for money and toys and parties, and you never cared about me for 19 years until you realized you wanted me! You dont love me, you only want me like a dress or a doll. You only love yourself!
- Sympathy for the Devil: POI-2910-2 eventually does feel sorry for her mother, caught up in the Ironic Hell she's created for herself, despite POI-2190-1's shockingly horrible behavior.
SCP-2191 - "Dracula Factory"
- Dishing Out Dirt: SCP-2191-3 is able to cause earthquakes at will.
- Humanoid Abomination: SCP-2191-1 instances are genetically human, but have undergone significant mutations such as lacking all major internal organs except for the lungs, heart and brain stem, among many others.
- Hive Mind: A massive underground organism, SCP-2191-3, controls SCP-2191-1 and SCP-2191-2 instances, with SCP-2191-1 instances acting as feeder drones.
- Morton's Fork: The Foundation is providing SCP-2191-3 with the food it needs, due to having sacrificed over 40,000 people in trying to contain it and many more in trying to destroy it. The alternative would be to sacrifice the entire Balkan Peninsula in order to neutralize it.
- Our Vampires Are Different: The SCP 2191-1 instances outwardly resemble the Orlok-style pale, bestial vampires, but underneath their mutated humanlike bodies, they are actually organic drones controlled by symbiotic lamprey-like creatures (SCP 2191-2) which are linked via a Hive Mind to SCP 2191-3 and act as feeding mechanisms to supply it with food created from digested from human victims.
SCP-2199 - Out of the Frying Pan
- Bizarre Alien Biology:
- SCP-2199 is an Indian camel whose hump is filled with water instead of tissue fibers, and this water is self-replenishing.
- The animals that live inside the hump, designated SCP-2199-1, resemble animals that live in desert regions, but have been modified to have small sizes and to live in an aquatic environment.
- Complete-the-Quote Title: "... into the fire".
SCP-2200 - Soulberg
- Amazing Technicolor Population: SCP-2200-2 (the person that SCP-2200-1, a sword, is bonded with) gradually gains a blue hue in their skin.
- Mortality Phobia: SCP-2200-1 tends to bond with people who are afraid of death and have a negative view of what happens after death.
- Reincarnation: Any people killed using SCP-2200-1 are reincarnated as constructs made of a silver-like alloy.
SCP-2206 - Maximum League Baseball
- Atlantis: The Florida Flounders are mentioned to play against the Atlantis Aquatics every year.
- Blood Sport: This universe's baseball seems to lead to casualties and injuries often, whether in-game or not.
- Deadly Game: SCP-2206 consists of baseball broadcasts from a universe where baseball is very weird.
- Fish People: The Florida Flounders are entirely amphibious.
- Home Field Advantage: The Colorado Blizzards play in a field perpetually covered in snow. Inverted by the Montreal Volcanoes playing in a crater that when erupts, kills without distinction!
- Multiple Reference Pun: Detroit Wolverines have the name from the state's college sport (University of Michigan) and are noted to be immortal. San Diego Whales refers to both animals that can be seen in the city and how the city's name supposedly means "whale's vagina".
- Punny Name: Synonyms (Metropolitans - Urbans; Twins - Clones), similar words (the "Cardinals" are priests instead of birds), references to the city (Phoenix Firebirds)...
- Reptiles Are Abhorrent: In the SCP-2006 radio broadcasts, the Baltimore Terrapins' team mascot is a three-ton, acid-spitting lizard that weighs 3 tons and is able to fire poisonous spines that grow from its back.
- Shout-Out: There's a large number of references to both pop culture and the real life MLB:
- Several teams note have names that real-life baseball teams used to have. Two others note are based off former teams from other sports, and one note is a legitimate current baseball team, albeit with their team name meaning something different.
- The Boston Red Shirts have a habit of frequently dying.
- The Chicago Black Sox attempted to fix the 1919 World Series, losing in a four-game sweep "to the confusion of all involved". This is a reference to the real life "Black Sox" scandal, where the Chicago White Sox attempted to fix the 1919 World Series. note
- The Cleveland Exiles are mentioned as not having played in Cleveland since 1900. In real life, the Cleveland Spiders became a travel team halfway through 1899 because of a lack of gate receipts.
- The Los Angeles Defectors and San Francisco Ghosts note were forcibly transplanted from Brooklyn and New York respectively, in 1958, escaping a plot by the New York Highlanders. This is an obvious take on the real Brooklyn Dodgers' move to Los Angeles and New York Giants' move to San Francisco.
- The New York Urbans and Baltimore Terrapins faced each other in the 1969 World Series, a parallel to the real-life New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles. In this universe, the "Murderin' Urbans" assassinated the Terrapins' roster, leading to a ban on off-field murder that wouldn't be lifted until 2000—another year in which the real-life Mets reached the World Series.
- The Oakland Elephants are a reference to the real Oakland Athletics' logo, which is an elephant.
- The Texas Renegades quit the league in 1993 to play basketball, returning in 1995. In effect, they did the reverse of Michael Jordan, who quit basketball to play baseball.
SCP-2207 - Dimensional Razor
- Alien Geometries: Exploration #1 has a hallway where you can reach the middle of it, but once you do, you can never reach the other side or go back to where you came from.
- And I Must Scream: Exploration #32 involves a universe where everything in it is frozen in place, including things that go into it from other universes. However, every living being in it is still conscious and aware of their surroundings.
- Dimensional Cutter: It's a plastic knife that can cut open portals to other universes. It also messes with the reality of those universes as a result.
- I'm Melting!: Exploration #46 involves a universe where everything is suddenly melting, including living beings.
- Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: The Foundation has been accidentally destroying entire universes by testing the knife and exploring the portals it creates.
SCP-2213 - Cat People
SCP-2219 - PORRIDGE
- Eye Scream: Losing to "MAMAMA" results in the player becoming permanently blind.
- The Immodest Orgasm: When GOLDOX collects 500 porridge, the player goes into an "instantaneous orgasm".
- Make Them Rot: Losing to "PAPAPA" causes "instantaneous, rapid tooth rot".
- The Most Dangerous Video Game: A video that has a number of harmful effects on players, such as causing leprosy or cardiac arrest.
- Reality Warper: The game affects the player based on what they have achieved or failed to do.
SCP-2226 - Annihilation
- Anti Matter: The SCP is an alien escape craft made of antimatter.
SCP-2232 - Birdphone. Think Different.
- Funny Animal: The SCP is apparently from a dimension where most birds live like humans, including driving around and having vehicle insurance.
- Instant Messenger Pigeon: Played with; they are birds that deliver messages, but they're noted to be very impractical as forms of communication due to Surprisingly Realistic Outcome.
- Polly Wants a Microphone: One of its forms is a talking myna. Truth in Television as mynas are among the best talkers in the bird world.
- Shout-Out: The second part of the name is a reference to Apple's slogan "Think different".
- Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: Communicating with these birds is extremely impractical—they may be magical, shapeshifting birds, but they're still birds, living creatures that require rest and food as they travel. Attempting to send a short message with them can take at least a day, while trying to send a long-distance message can take up to a year.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: When not being used, it resembles a Samsung Galaxy S4. When taking phone calls or texting is attempted, it will transform into a species of bird and duplicate, with the copy going to the recipient.
SCP-2241 - Cameron The Crusader.
- Abusive Parents: During an interview with him, it's heavily hinted at that Cameron's parents were abusive towards him and to each other, at least on an emotional level. Apparently his powers would subconciously manifest at times when he heard them fighting, after which they would just get "distracted" for a moment before going back to arguing.
- Beware the Superman: A six-year-old Reality Warper boy who wants to become a superhero and use his powers for good... By killing all the "bad guys". (Or more specifically, whoever or whatever the Foundation tells him are the "bad guys" he must defeat).
- Black-and-White Insanity: Sees nothing wrong with killing people with his powers, as long a they are "bad guys". Justified in that 1) he's a six-year-old child who's been led to believe he's a superhero, and 2) it is noted he actually had an aversion towards violence before the Foundation psychologically screwed him over with their constant testing."I hate them. I'm a Foundation 'venger and I hate the bad guys and I'm gonna fight them all."
- Child Soldier: What his real role in the Foundation is, while he's gaslighted into believing he's doing superhero work. He's outright called as such by O5-4 during the very heated discussion between the O5 and the Ethics Committee about the situation. Taken to its logical extreme during SCP-5000's Alternate Timeline, where he was used as a living weapon to eradicate not only the GOC, but what was left of humanity.
- Creepy Child: Not that he actually started as one, though...
- Goo Goo God Like: Another Type-Green child just like SCP-239, but much, much less powerful than her.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The fact that they could be creating another Able lead to an "order fight" between the head researcher, the Ethics Committee, and the Overseers. The researcher won because they're confident the explosive tracking chip they're going to put in his brain will be enough to neutralize SCP-2241 if he goes out of control. Of course, A) they haven't done it yet and B) Cameron's already demonstrated telekinesis/teleporting abilities...
- Reality Warper: The true nature of his powers, even though he himself doesn't know it.
- Restraining Bolt: What the monitoring chip Researcher Valdez wants to implant in his brain is meant to serve as. Whether it will/would actually work or not, that's anyone's guess. It would also double as an Explosive Leash of sorts.
- Shout-Out:SCP-2241: What does SCP mean, mister?Valdez: It means "Secure, Contain, Protect"Valdez: That's right, Cameron. Like the Avengers.
- Training from Hell: Cameron's Creepy Child traits only manifested after he became mentally unstable by the merciless testing he went through at the hands of the Foundation researchers, masqueraded as superhero training. The Foundation also simulated situations of real danger where Cameron would get forced into using his powers, either to be a hero (Saving helpless D-Class "civilians") or to save himself. Said situations included but were not limited to hiding a bomb in his personal belongings and a long-range surprise attack by a robotic mortar.
- Tyke-Bomb: What the Foundation's testing of his abilities has turned him into. It should be noted that the intended main goal of the tests it's not to use him as a Child Soldier to deploy in combat, but to understand better how the brain of an anomalous humanoid works and develops. Or at least, that's what Researcher Valdez claims it is for.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: An abused kid with weak, underdeveloped reality-bending powers who loved superhero comics, turned into a Creepy Child Tyke-Bomb "superhero" with way too much power on his hands. And that's not even getting into what could possibly happen if he ever finds out that the Foundation lied to him and has just been using him as a human guinea pig this whole time, or if the Restraining Bolt plan fails horribly...
SCP-2249 - The Failed Dreamland
- Bigger on the Inside: SCP-2249 is an extra-dimensional space that has a total area of about four square kilometers. It is found within a Russian hospital that is of considerably smaller size.
SCP-2254 - The Demon La Hire and the Valley of Lust
- Body Horror: Par for the course for the once-human Knights of Apollyon. 2254 is inhumanly large, has four extra legs sticking out of his back, a blank face with six eyes, and genitalia replaced by boils that can reach out like limbs.
- Cain and Abel: Implied. The interviewee mentions that "Jack" always seems scared and concerned when talking about his brothers, presumably the other knights of Apollyon.
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: Played with. 2254 seems to spawn -1 instances via human women, but the intercourse is done normally with human men, though 2254 watches the act closely. The child also develops quickly, consuming most of the mother's body. The mother is then compelled to breastfeed them until she dies. Also, 2254 is not an alien, but a cursed early human.
- Seven Deadly Sins: La Hire embodies the sin of Lust, as everything he causes revolves around sex and intercourse. This is significant, since the other Knights also embody sins.
- Squick: A lot of it invoked. 2254 induces sexual urges in yougn adults, watch them closely during intercourse, and the resulting child will almost always be an 2254-1 instance, malformed humanoids who are extremely prone to sexual violence.
- Was Once a Man: 2254 was once La Hire, one of the knights of House Apollyon from SCP-4840, until he submitted to the profanities of the Fae.
SCP-2256 - Very Tall Things
- Endangered Species: Ever since the Foundation began to study them, their health and fertility began to decline, and their population began dropping sharply since 1994 until the last individual died in 2006.
- Gentle Giant Sauropod: Described as resembling elongated brachiosaurs, and were absolutely massive, reaching heights over a kilometer. Despite this, the Maikiti natives characterized them as well-meaning and friendly.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The Foundation learned that SCP-2256 was physically harmed by observing them, meaning that the Foundation's ongoing passive observation of the species was intense enough to cause their population decline and extinction.
- Painting the Medium: The very last two paragraphs show that the SCP's anti-memetic effect has spread to textual documents even with mnestic doses, and the occurrence of text getting censored out increases towards the bottom of the document.
- Perception Filter: They have an anti-memetic camouflage that renders them nearly impossible for other sentient beings to perceive or remember. This is necessary for their survival, as they are harmed from direct observation. Furthermore, any data written about them "corrodes" over time, with photo images and recordings fading fastest.
- Posthumous Character: The entire species is extinct, and the document is about the data recorded while they were still alive. They're still considered Euclid as their antimemetic effects linger long after their extinction.
- Weaksauce Weakness: SCP-2256 instances began to suffer from illness, stillbirth, and infertility some time after the Foundation started studying them. It turned out that direct observation of SCP-2256 was injurious to them, and when a field generator that penetrated the anti-memetic effect allowed a camera to take a close-up photo of one instance, it instantly died. The Foundation's ongoing passive observation was hypothesized to be killing them, and eventually drove them extinct.
SCP-2260 - Traveler's Journal
- Healing Factor: When a human being is exploring a remote area using SCP-2260, their body will heal from injury at ten times the normal rate.
- Remote yet Vulnerable: After writing a location in SCP-2260, the writer falls into a coma and their astral double explores the location. While their body is in the coma, they are totally vulnerable to attack.
SCP-2264 - In the Court of Alagadda
- Alien Geometries: The architecture of SCP-2264 is non-Euclidean and law of gravity isn't consistent. The city's inhabitants can be seen climbing a stairway upside-down, but as they see it gravity is normal.
- Alien Sea: The city inside SCP-2264 is surrounded by a black ocean. The nature of the liquid is unknown but it appears to be more viscous than water.
- Alien Sky: The sky over the city in SCP-2264 is colored yellow and filled with an unknown number of black stars. The stars don't match any known Earth constellations.
- "Ass" in Ambassador: The Ambassador of Alagadda. Will do horrible things to you and make you do horrible things just because it can.
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: The portal to Alagadda was created by Henry Percy, the 9th Earl of Northumberland while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. Other figures from Elizabethan England, such as Elizabeth I's advisor and noted occultist John Dee may have also helped create the portal.
- Deal with the Devil: The Hanged King is sought out by various extradimensional travellers for "boons".
- Deliberately Monochrome: The only colors one can see are black, white, red, and yellow, and if the Ambassador's around the colors become hazy and "grayish".
- Den of Iniquity: Everyone loves the Hall of Mercurial Virtue.
- Dream Land: Alagadda is not quite as horrific as readers of The Hanged King's Tragedy would have guessed, so long as you can avoid the Ambassador and the King. Visitors feel as though they're running on dream logic: locations shift, time is hard to tell, and trying to read is headache-inducing in spite of the Universal Translator.
- Eldritch Abomination: The Ambassador, the Hanged King (described as a "god-shaped hole"), and the four (currently three) masked lords.
- Eldritch Location: With Alien Geometry, a black and viscous Alien Sea, and yellow Alien Sky with an unknown number of black stars.Dr. Calixto Narváez: The true name of SCP-2264-B is Alagadda, a city-state said to border the Nevermeant.
- Feathered Fiend: The Wandsman of Kul-Manas, who's actually pretty friendly aside from his dismissiveness to whatever backwater dimension one of the masked lords was exiled to.
- Mask Power: Every being that enters has their clothes replaced with Venetian Carnival clothes and given a mask, the only item that can't be removed.
- Reality Warper: The Masked Lords are described as potentially some of the highest-level reality benders known to the Foundation. One shudders to imagine the power of the Ambassador or, heavens help us, the King.
- Sole Survivor: It leaves one Foundation operative alive to tell the tale.Agent Alexander Papadopoulos: In the end, I was the only one left alive — surrounded by the corpses of my ravaged friends and comrades. I understand now. The Ambassador needed a witness, one to deliver its message. To tell you this
- Spare a Messenger: Mobile Task Force Psi-9 ("Abyss Gazers") is sent into the city beyond SCP-2264 in an attempt to determine the threat level of the Ambassador of Alagadda and King of Alagadda. When they meet the Ambassador he kills all but one member of MTF Psi-9. During his debriefing the survivor says "The Ambassador needed a witness, one to deliver its message." The message is what the witness saw in the face of the King: "A god shaped hole. The barren desolation of a fallen and failed creation. You see the light of long dead stars. Your existence is nothing but an echo of a dying god's screams."
SCP-2269 - Grandma Spider
- Body Horror: SCP-2269-1 (the titular grandma) is infested by a colony of spiders (SCP-2269-2) that repair any of her injuries with their silk and freely move in and out of her orifices (without causing her pain, however).
- Cool Old Lady: She's 87 years old and has been described as being really nice by one of her neighbors.
- The Voiceless: She doesn't talk.
SCP-2271 - Factory Loans
- Adult Fear: It preys on the fear of owing large amounts of money and the consequences of not paying up. As author djkaktus put it:"If you're too young to appreciate it yet, consider yourself fortunate. Debt sucks."
- Evil Debt Collector: SCP-2271-1 imposes an impossible-to-pay debt on the victim, then drives them mad with visual hallucinations of shadowy figures and a violent desire to pay off the debt by any means necessary, including emptying monetary accounts and selling off possessions, their loved ones, and their own body parts. When the debtor inevitably fails to pay up a second time, they vanish as the consequence of the outstanding debt.
- Failure Is the Only Option: No matter what actions SCP-2271-1 victims take, they will die. Either they die from removing their own organs to sell them, they sell their entire remaining body, or they disappear after the second time they fail the payment deadline.
- Senseless Sacrifice: Victims will attempt to pay off the debt by any means, even if it involves selling off their needs and their own bodies...yet never at any point will their debt ever decrease.
- Shockingly Expensive Bill: The exact amount is redacted, but it's stated that even if you sell off everything on the entire planet, you would still not pay off the debt fully.
- You Are Already Dead: The moment you receive an instance of SCP-2271-1, you're pretty much screwed, since you now have an impossibly large debt and the inevitable consequence of failing to pay it off is that you vanish. Assuming you don't ship your entire body away before then. Which also is implied to kill you, since items you ship off for the purpose of paying off the debt disappear once you pack them, never to be seen again.
SCP-2273 - Major Alexei Belitrov, of the Red Army's 22nd Armored Infantry DivisionSee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2274 - He Stands
- And I Must Scream: Anyone who sees the statue is compelled to keep looking at it without concern for their own welfare, until they die from dehydration. Thus far, the effect has been permanent for anyone affected by it.
- Berserk Button: Do not remove the statue from the line of sight of anyone affected. They will beat you up.
- Disproportionate Retribution: The first victim didn't like the result of her commission, so the artist made something she couldn't take her eyes off of.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In connection with Berserk Button, anyone who breaks the line of sight can expect one of these.
SCP-2282 - Goat.
- Alien Geometries: SCP-2282 appeared to be a normal goat. Its digestive tract was a set of non-Euclidean spacial distortions that increased its internal volume to at least 17,000 cubic meters, made up of more than 8,000 separate stomachs.
- Bigger on the Inside: Before it was euthanized, SCP-2282's digestive tract had a volume of at least 17,000 cubic meters due to its non-Euclidean nature.
- Body Horror: While alive, its gigantic digestive tract was contained in a goat-sized package. However, once euthanized, the non-Euclidean digestive tract became Euclidean, resulting in an explosion of goat entrails.
- Extreme Omnigoat: Taken to ludicrous degrees, as it "eats" by simply incorporating the space around objects that enters its mouth into its digestive tract and has more than enough digestive tract to hold it. Post-mortem examination found that the contents of its stomachs included 11 rocks, a stainless steel dresser, almost 200 glue sticks, and an entire giraffe skeleton.
- Posthumous Character: The goat in question is deceased as of its article's latest in-universe edit. Incidentally, its death ended up causing much more trouble than it did while alive.
SCP-2295 - The Bear with a Heart of Patchwork
- Ambiguously Related: It might share a common origin with SCP-1048, its Evil Counterpart.
- Badass Adorable: A teddy bear that can perform delicate and successful organ transplants.
- Fingerless Hands: It has no fingers, yet is able to sew, crochet, stitch, and cut with scissors.
- Friend to All Children: When in proximity to two or more injured subjects, it will always start working on the youngest subject first, although it has no aversions to treating adults. The card it was found with indicates that it was made for a child by his grandmother.
- Good Counterpart: To SCP-1048, another living teddy bear with the power of creation. SCP-2295 sews functioning cloth organs for injured humans, while SCP-1048 spawns homicidal copies of itself that are deadly to humans. In one of the test logs, it hugs a subject's lower leg, something SCP-1048 was noted to do frequently.
- Hammerspace: It can pull certain objects out of nowhere, including scissors, thread, sewing needles, a crocheting hook, and a king-size chocolate bar, but it requires pre-existing cloth to make organ and skin replacements.
- Healing Factor: If it doesn't have cloth to work with to cure a patient, it will use its own fabric and stuffing, the latter of which it can slowly regenerate.
- Heroic BSoD: As noted below, the only thing SCP-2295 can't heal is damaged brain tissue. In one experiment, it was exposed to an 18-year old subject with cerebral hemorrhaging. 2295 proceeded to grab onto any material around it for about a minute in a distressed state, after which it produced a chocolate bar, gave it to the subject and held onto their right leg while crying.
- Living Toys: A teddy bear that becomes sentient and autonomous in the presence of an injured person in order to cure them.
- Meaningful Name: The card with which it was found indicates that its name is Kairos, a Greek word (καιρός) which means "[a] time when conditions are right for the accomplishment of a crucial action; the opportune and decisive moment" (per Wiktionary). SCP-2295 remains inanimate until it's absolutely needed—that is, when someone close by has a damaged organ.
- Sealed Good in a Can: Currently kept in a standard containment locker.
- Super Doc: It can use cloth to create perfectly functional replicas of almost any organ and replacements for damaged skin. The only thing it can't fix is damaged brain tissue.
- Token Good Teammate: One of the rare SCPs that is both completely benevolent and has no harmful side effects when used.
- The Voiceless: It does not talk, much like SCP-1048.
SCP-2300 - Periodic Golems
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The periodic table of elements personified as Living Statues.
- Fantastic Caste System: The noble gases lead their periods (ex. SCP-2300-10 'neon' leads -3 'lithium' through -9 'fluorine', -18 'argon' leads -11 'potassium' to -17 'chlorine', etc.) however in the end they all turn to SCP-2300-1, the one made of hydrogen, for guidance.
- Golem: Ninety-eight of them, all the size of paperweights.
- Pun: The most intelligent golems are the ones that are the least dense.
- Silicon-Based Life: With each golem made of their respective elements, this includes SCP-2300-14 as it is made purely of silicon.
SCP-2301 - Slayer's Song
- Breath Weapon: When SCP-2301 takes the form of a European dragon, it can breath out fire that has a temperature greater than 1000° C.
- Super Strength: When SCP-2301 takes the form of a Japanese oni, it is "incredibly strong", and can crush a man's chest by striking it with a kanabo (Japanese club).
SCP-2316 - Field Trip
- Ambiguous Situation: One-sided dialogue transcripts and other context clues from related SCPs heavily imply SCP-2316's cognitohazard and the mysterious voice that appears in the article's corruption as a result of it is telling the truth (in that the Foundation is at least partially responsible for its creation), but no real confirmation is ever offered.
- Brown Note: SCP-2316 is a cognitohazard, meaning that it effects anyone who sees it, those who see it becoming convinced that they know the bodies from their personal lives.
- Haunted Technology: SCP-2316 unlocks a redacted interview in the article for the reader, and repeatedly edits in footnotes and eventually an entire Villainous Monologue as a disembodied voice convincing them to join it.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: If you believe the mysterious voice, the SCP itself, and the remnants of Syncope Symphony, the place has more in common with the Foundation than with the Class of '76 and Syncope. To what extent is never explicitly stated, only that there is unjust blood on their hands.
- Villainous Breakdown: The entity controlling SCP-2316 becomes increasingly irritated as the reader resists their advances, eventually taking the form of a passive-aggressive disembodied voice that tries to force its effects onto the reader and eventually succeeding.
- You Cannot Grasp the True Form: It's theorized that the corpses that make up SCP-2316 are not real, but rather a form that the entity had taken to lure people in.
SCP-2317 - A DOOR TO ANOTHER WORLDSee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2331 - SCRAVECROW
- Pumpkin Person: SCP-2331 is an animated scarecrow with a pumpkin head that has a fluorescent blue glow inside it. He creates raves and acts as a DJ at them.
- Stingy Jack: The last interview log implies that SCP-2331 is the spirit of Halloween, saddened over the commercialization of the holiday, trying something new to relive the joy the holiday once brought him.
- Stomach of Holding: Subverted. One of his party tricks is vomiting glow sticks to pass out through the crowd, however it's uncertain whether they manifest in his mouth or stomach.
SCP-2332 - Thought Messenger
- Alternate Universe: SCP-2332 is a butterfly made of ultraviolet light that was originally created and sent out by another universe's version of the Foundation. It ended up in this universe by accident.
- Intangible Man: Because SCP-2332 is made of light, it can pass through solid objects as long as they're made of a substance permeable to light (i.e. not opaque) such as glass and Plexiglas.
- Weakened by the Light: SCP-2332 is rendered catatonic when exposed to strong light at wavelengths between 360 and 480 nanometers (i.e. blue light), such as from a blue laser pointer.
SCP-2333 - One Week to Live
- Healing Factor: In the first stage of infection, the infectee rapidly recovers from any chronic diseases.
- The Insomniac: Anyone infected is unable to sleep.
- The Stoic: The first sign of infection is that the person is extremely calm.
SCP-2337 - Dr. SpankoSee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2343 - How I Got To Memphis
- Domestic Abuse: He sports bruises on his face that he claims were from a friend but are clearly from his wife.
- Hammerspace: Is able to produce objects like a cigarette and a guitar out of nowhere.
- Stealth Pun: His name, Peter, is a subtle allusion to his real identity as Ptah. Same with his wife's name, Sacha, an allusion to her identity as Sekhhet, as another name for her is Sachmis.
SCP-2347 - Maxwell's Phoenix
- Born-Again Immortality: After spontaneously combusting, his remaining bones will gather together over 24 hours, and he will reappear unharmed.
- Spontaneous Human Combustion: He undergoes this once his body temperature reaches 40-43°C.
SCP-2353 - The Mannequin That Will No Longer Put Up With This Shit, Honestly
- Berserk Button: She doesn't react well to several items of clothing, including Crocs, white clothing (including lab coats) between the first Monday of September and the first day of spring, flip-flops or sandals worn with socks, and jorts.
- Double Entendre: While removing a man's pants, she says "No one wants to see squished sausage!"
- The Fashionista: She's a very fashionable mannequin.
- Long Title
- Rhetorical Question Blunder: She asks a random woman wearing zebra print sandals if she's blind. This is, indeed, the case.
SCP-2355 - 'They Grow up so Fast'
- Rapid Aging: Any baby of under 12 months of age that is placed in one of the cribs and left unobserved between sleeping and waking will grow up to an 18-year-old version of themselves.
SCP-2356 - Skylar's Wand
- Ill Boy: The wand's original owner, Skylar Sharp, was diagnosed with leukemia at 5 years of age and died 7 months after the initial diagnosis.
- Magic Wand: It's in the title. It allows objects to be transformed into other objects (usually toys for young children), and they can be returned to normal by the wielder.
SCP-2362 - Not a Planet
- Pluto Is Expendable: It used to be Pluto... then it hatched.
- Space Whale: Or more like Space Jellyfish
- That's No Moon!: That's no Pluto, that's an egg.
SCP-2385 - Somewhere In The Between
- Beast with a Human Face: The SCP-2385-1 & -2 instances are worm-like creatures with humanoid heads.
- Creepy Cave: SCP-2385 is this, where it has a fleshy wall where the instances known as SCP-2385-1 are born from.
- Gentle Giant: The SCP-2385-2 instances are docile compared to their smaller SCP-2385-1 instances. Averted for the larger SCP-2385-1 instances, who remain violent and aggressive.
- Mobile Maze: The cave system's walls will occasionally open passageways, which can close again after some time. SCP-2385-2 instances, while they cannot create new passageways, are able to open ones that do exist by nudging at the walls.
- Monstrous Cannibalism: SCP-2385-1 instances will eat others of their own, as well as deceased instances of SCP-2385-2.
SCP-2386 - Pink Ladies
- Chest Burster: Instances of SCP-2386-1 will burst from the growth where SCP-2386 initially planted its eggs in any male.
- Does Not Like Men: In autumn/winter, instances of SCP-2386 act hostile towards any male of any species.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: SCP-2386 instances are noted to have similarities to both human botflies and silkworms.
SCP-2396 - Ms. SweetieSee Characters.SCP Foundation Misters.
SCP-2399 - A Malfunctioning Destroyer
- Antimatter: Its weaponry is based upon antimatter, which caused a colossal hurricane on Jupiter.
- Apocalypse How: SCP-2399 is an Ominous Floating Spaceship that was headed to Earth but got pancaked by Jupiter and is currently undergoing self-repair. It's the size of North America, by the way, so if Jupiter hadn't stopped it or it fully repairs and reaches Earth, nothing good could come from its arrival.
- Been There, Shaped History: You know The Great Red Spot? 2399 caused it.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: One explanation for its presence is that it came to Earth first to deal with a SCP-001 proposal. Which is a massive Eldritch Abomination that may or may not be the Broken God that the Church of the Broken God worships. While it was successful in defeating the god with a single laser beam, it was damaged and fled to Jupiter for repairs.
- Drone Deployer: Can dispense little octoid drones to repair it.
- Deflector Shields: Dons a full-body electromagnetic forcefield that makes it utterly indestructible by any means.
- Good All Along: In one SCP-001 proposal, it saved the Earth from a Mechanical Abomination that may or may not have been the Broken God. It was damaged in the process, however, and fled to Jupiter to repair itself.
- Heroic Sacrifice: One of its explanations. It shot down the Broken God SCP-001 proposal, an Eldritch Abomination that ravaged northern Mexico, and was critically damaged to the point it fled to Jupiter to repair itself. In other words, it actually only existed for our own good.
- Lost Superweapon: It's a continent-sized Ominous Floating Spaceship that crashed into Jupiter, and activated its defenses of an electromagnetic forcefield to shield itself from the giant's harsh conditions, an army of repair drones to patch up its injuries and retrieve its scattered remains, and anti-matter-based weaponry that caused the Great Red Spot. Also, it may have killed a literal god.
- Outside-Context Problem: 2399's creator, most definitely an alien/species of alien. It's been sending messages to 2399 to repair itself for the past years.
SCP-2400 - Temporal Dilation Facility
- Fantastic Time Management: Site-64T was constructed inside SCP-2400-A specifically for this goal.
- Portal Door: SCP-2400 is a steel door set in a fragment of a concrete wall. When opened, it leads to an apparently infinite plane of existence with ground similar to concrete and a star similar to the Sun overhead.
- Power Nullifier: SCP-2400's classified Object Class is Thaumiel. One of the reasons for this is because the anomalous temporal situation within SCP-2400 neutralizes SCP-2700's energy flow problems. (see below for SCP-2700) The other reason is that it is a very stable and effective Time Dilation Field.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: While the door to SCP-2400 is closed, time passes inside SCP-2400 at a rate of 140 times the normal rate.
SCP-2401 - Mary Had A Little Lamb
- Bizarre Alien Reproduction: SCP-2401 are unusual honeybees that can infest and control a human body, but males all die quickly and most of the females commit suicide. When the host body is female it can have sex with a human male and become impregnated. The babies will be adapted to be better hosts.
- Body Horror: SCP-2401 are honeybees that can enter a human body and build honeycomb-like structures inside it, turning the body into a large hive.
SCP-2406 - The Colossus
- Anachronism Stew: Par for the course for the Church of the Broken God/Followers of Mekhane. Goat intestines are used to deliver air to the pilots, but it's got an onboard nuclear reactor and a reality-altering alien Arm Cannon.
- Arm Cannon: A highly advanced reality-warping gun of "non-terrestrial" origin.
- Been There, Shaped History: According to documents accompanying it, Grand Karcist Ion and his followers are responsible for the Bronze Age collapse. It also mentions that "the city of a thousand pillars is lost", implied to be Iram of the Pillars, a city mentioned in the Qur'an, said to have been destroyed by God.
- Historical In-Joke: The second document mentions that they are heading for the island of Kythera. Kythera is only 38 kilometres from Antikythera, where one of the world's oldest computers was found in a shipwreck.
- Humongous Mecha: 93 meters in height and weighing approximately 210 tonnes. Made around 1200 BCE, and currently in a very damaged state.
- Rousing Speech: Matriarch Eupraxia, Legates-Faithful, Servant of MEKHANE delivers a pretty effective one."We have seen villages ravaged by the Red Death. We have seen the dead, the dying, and the deathless. We cast the accursed to holy flame. We enter his desolate domain. And in our left hand, we carry our ANSWER. We cannot undo what has been done - but we can delay the Sarkic Dawn."
SCP-2416 - The Day the Clown Died
- Black Comedy: The many deaths this guy has, combined with the stupidest reasons, make this article hilarious.
- The Fool: Given his attitude, it's clear he had this mindset, but not the luck that's supposed to come with it.
- Resurrective Immortality: Comes back to life in another location after dying. The Foundation doesn't know how yet, but they've ruled out reincarnation.
- Rule of Three: In three of his deaths, his last reported words were "gimme a kiss". Those deaths involved (separately) a table saw, a rattlesnake, and Chilean anarchists.
- Running Gag: "Last words were reportedly 'gimme a kiss'."
- Too Dumb to Live: His main defining trait is that he always finds the stupidest ways to die, then resurrects and comes back for more. Recorded deaths include going into a puma habitat in a zoo covered in bacon, sleeping in the middle of a freeway, and climbing into an incinerator after mistaking it for a bathroom. Unsurprisingly, the Foundation resorted to just putting him in a coma so that he can't get himself killed again.
SCP-2419 - The Laughing Men
- Ax-Crazy: The SCP-2419-A instances murder every sapient being they get their hands on.
- Came Back Wrong: SCP-2419-A instances are the regenerated corpses of D-Class who had all of their positive memories removed, turning them into a creature somewhere between a zombie and a Humanoid Abomination that runs on The Power of Hate.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Their anomalous abilities are implied to stem from their sadism and Blood Lust being so overwhelming that it brings them back to life so they can continue satiating it.
- Healing Factor: The heat of the incinerators are the only things keeping them from completely regenerating their flesh. Even the small amount of flesh they do manage to regenerate is threatening to clog up the incinerators and starve them of oxygen to fuel their flames.
- Human Resources: The brains of recently deceased humans leave behind a residue (implied to be Y-909, the same compound released by SCP-3000 whenever it consumes a human), which can be distilled to only contain happy memories and used to create powerful amnestics. The Foundation uses the corpses of D-Class subjects to this end, which have somehow been reanimated inside the incinerators as omnicidal, indestructible zombies.
- It Can Think: One instance escaped containment by tearing off its own arm and using the resulting fracture as a piercing weapon to break the bullet-proof glass.
- Implacable Man: When they first started appearing, instances of SCP-2419-A shrugged off everything the cleanup teams threw at them. The only way they managed to incapacitate a few for study was by burying them in concrete.
- The Dog Bites Back: SCP-2419-A are the reanimated corpses of D-Class who died in testing and had their happy memories boiled away to make stronger amnestics. With a history like that, it's no wonder they try to kill all the Foundation personnel they see.
- Take That!: The article is an ode against the Dehumanization of Asshole Victims and argues that everyone, no matter how awful, is entitled to basic respect as a human being. With the Foundations treatment of D-Class as inhuman monsters having caused them to become literally inhuman.
- Dr. Hammond: We've done it. In death, D-263175 is finally the monster people imagined. I've burned away every last trace of his humanity. Now, I'm going to send his corpse to Unit C and burn away the rest. I pray to God that what's left will burn.
- Laughing Mad: All they ever do is laugh, its not clear if its because theyre too far gone to understand their situation or if they do understand and are enjoying it.
- Super Strength: Capable of tearing apart an adult man with their bare hands, an ability theyre willing to combine with their Healing Factor to create some extremely grisly improvised weapons.
- Out of the Inferno: All the instances of SCP-2419-A are currently trapped within the facilitys active incinerators.
- The Power of Hate: Thanks to having every happy memory burned away by the Foundation to make amnestics, all that's left in them is bitterness, anger, hate and other negative emotions strong enough to bring them back to life for the sake of seeking retribution.
- Our Zombies Are Different: Theyre actually indistinguishable from normal humans when fully regenerated, and theyre heavily implied to be both intelligent and extremely malevolent.
SCP-2422 - A Friendly Family
- Artificial Human: "Created" by the Wandering Father. Averted. They're four perfectly ordinary people who were Not Brainwashed by some incompetent hick of a hypnotist with a supply of stolen Super Serum.
- Cure Your Gays: 2422-A kisses one worker unexpectedly. This hints at the fact that he's actually a homosexual.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Their method of creation. A bizarre individual attempted to brainwash them as part of some sick joke on the Foundation.
- Not Brainwashed: -C has some trouble keeping to the whole "joy" thing. All but one of them, ultimately. -A is just a little affected. -D is in shock, and running on their "creators's" programming, acting as the "police officer" and threatening the others to keep them in line when they stray.
- Red Herring: Peeling the onion will reveal more than one assumption was wrong.
- Telepathy: Each member of SCP-2422 can use telepathy to read a person's mind and find out specific information when the person makes eye contact with them.
- SCP-2422-A can determine how intelligent the person is on a scale of 0-35, with 22 being the average. This corresponds to the standard IQ scale.
- SCP-2422-B can learn what the person has been doing for the last 22 hours, including where they've been.
- SCP-2422-C will share the person's emotional state. If the contact continues, it will experience the person's emotional states (up to the last 22 hours) in reverse chronological order.
- After having a long conversation with a person on a specific subject, SCP-2422-D will know how the person really feels about the subject.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: SCP-2422-D, according to the companion tale.
SCP-2424 - Hostile Walrus Cyborg [striked out] research ongoing
- Doomed Hometown: In the anomalous Video Game Eskimo Moe, the title character's home village was burned down by Emperor Penguin when he kidnapped Moe's girlfriend Anaaya.
- Freeze Ray: In the anomalous Video Game Eskimo Moe, the enemies known as Goonters (intelligent penguins) have pistol-like devices that can fire a freezing ray.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: The Boss Battle opponent Bruiser is stated to have a "high pitched sonic blast" that is capable of killing the character Moe the Eskimo.
- Sorting Algorithm of Evil: SCP-2424 is a Video Game Boss Battle opponent who exists in Real Life. He says of himself: "I'm the first, the easiest, I'm supposed to be. I've been destroyed more times than I care to remember." He also refers to other opponents who are stronger.
SCP-2451 - Love Through Time, Space and Species
- Alternate Universe: SCP-2451 is a doorway to a series of other universes, some of which are very different from the Foundation's universe. In one the "humans" are 8 foot tall bird-like creatures with beaks the size of a human's arm.
- Happily Married: The interview reveals 2451 is actually married to 2451-14. She attacked him at first but he helped sort it out and they got along pretty well it seems, with them deciding they should just get married for convenience. 2451 cares for her greatly, explicitly says he'd rather she run away and leave him behind instead of undergoing whatever experiments he knows people like the Foundation would do to her. Given the containment procedures for her, it seems the Foundation wasn't as bad he thought.
- Hitler's Time Travel Exemption Act: SCP-2451 is created by an attempt by the American military to send one of the soldiers back in time to kill Hitler, only for seemingly nothing to happen. However, said soldier winds up becoming a walking temporal anomaly, through which other time travelers from other dimensions exit to kill their historical genocidal tyrants.
- Interspecies Romance: 2451-14 is apparently only "superficially" human. 2451 very vocally doesn't care.
SCP-2461 - Aftermath
- It Has Been an Honor: Two of the GOC (Global Occult Coalition) agents who stole the Nazi UFO apparently didn't like each other very much, but their last words indicated their true feelings.VAV-2: For what it's worth, Fritz, you weren't so bad for a stuck up German ass.VAV-1: I feel the same way, you headstrong Ami bitch.
- Power Armor: SCP-2461-B are exoskeletal suits of powered armor made of steel alloy and tailored to fit the individual wearer. The suits provide increased strength and life support in space, and the armor makes the wearer Immune to Bullets.
- Stupid Jetpack Hitler: SCP-2461 is a set of recovered Nazi artifacts. SCP-2461-A is a flying saucer with X-ray laser turrets, SCP-2461-B are exoskeleton Power Armors, SCP-2461-D are X-ray laser pistols and SCP-2461-E are X-ray laser rifles.
SCP-2463 - An Emperor's Debt
- Exact Words: SCP-2463 was commissioned by the Roman emperor Valerian in the following words: "A force to wipe out the Persian dogs. To make barren their lands, and sickly their people. A force to destroy every square foot on which they have ever walked and to plague their kingdom with bloodshed for millennia." It's a group of horse statues that turn water into oil.
- Salt the Earth: One of its intended effects is to make land barren.
- Worthless Yellow Rocks: One of the older (third century) documents Marshall, Carter and Dark has about it describes the petroleum it produces as useless black pitch.
SCP-2470 - The Void Singularity
- Apocalypse How: Is considered to be the initial manifestation of a universe- or possibly multiverse-ending ZK-class reality failure event due to its ability to erase anything it perceives and understands. If it began to understand entire concepts, or perhaps the whole universe...
- Barrier Maiden: The Foundation believes its mere existence takes up the universe's ZK-class apocalypse 'slot' (ironically also making it an Apocalypse Maiden) and no other events of ZK magnitude can take place concurrently.
- Clone by Conversion: The final collapsible on the page very heavily implies that 2470 is capable of turning living beings into further instances of itself via use of its Dream Stealer abilities, leading to victims becoming apathetic and indifferent and eventually taking uncommon curiosity in common objects. Whenever medical staff diagnose this particular affliction, they are put into an artificial coma, pumped full of enough Brain Bleach to down an elephant, then killed with neurotoxin and cremated. As if this thing wasn't dangerous enough.
- Deity of Human Origin: Was Once a Man, as it would turn out, and wound up having a doomsday cult spring up around his transformed state...assuming his mentor wasn't part of this to begin with and they always planned to make their own destroyer god.
- Dream Stealer: Again, the final collapsible shows cases of it appearing in recurring dreams had by various personnel that work in the containment area as a pulsating black mass, followed by victims ceasing to have dreams altogether.
- Eldritch Abomination: An abstract being with a largely unknown and likely incomprehensible appearance that's capable of inflicting Cessation of Existence on -ANYTHING- it perceives and comes to understand. Even though he used to be human.
- Enlightened Antagonist: His enlightenment during his time as a human was incomplete, as he wound up misinterpreting the 'nonexistence' bent of nirvana and began LITERALLY making things cease to exist.
- Enfant Terrible: It knows little and is constantly learning whenever confronted with anything it doesn't understand, giving the impression that it's a newborn eldritch horror. This is averted, as it would happen, under Was Once a Man.
- God of Evil: Seemingly to the cult thought to have summoned it into this world, though whether it can really be considered a 'god' is debatable and it seems to be Obliviously Evil at worst.
- Godzilla Threshold: As the Foundation believes its presence is capable of 'disabling' other ZK-class scenarios, it is hesitant to use a form of the "Weißschattens paradox" designed to be able to bypass its memetic defenses and neutralize it unless it becomes too difficult to contain, as this thing could easily go from Keter to Apollyon with the slightest mistake in containment.
- Logic Bomb: A "Weißschattens paradox", prepared by the Foundation as a means of either killing the object by making it erase itself through a memetic agent, or by destroying its ability to perceive. It seems to have a Logic Bomb resistance, however, but the paradox is enough to keep it occupied and prevent it from destroying its containment area.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Came damn close to turning into one while he was human; the Foundation is, unknowingly, attempting to avert this from happening.
- One-Winged Angel: Was Once a Man who nearly erased himself from existence, becoming a far more monstrous Eldritch Abomination void in reality after 'death'.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Even did it to himself but it didn't stick completely.
- Power of the Void: It's title is the Void Singularity, is described as an 'unfillable unbeing' at one point and anything it perceives is erased from existence.
- Unrealistic Black Hole: Somewhat averted, as the Foundation had initially believed it to be something like a miniature black hole but disproved this, though it does act in ways like an informational and existential black hole.
- Was Once a Man: The tale Perfect Mind shows the SCP was once a human with latent Realty Warper abilities who was deluded into a 'corrupted' version of Buddhist nirvana through his mentor trying to shortcut him through, unwittingly activating his reality-bending abilities and damn near stepping into Omnicidal Maniac territory before he went and turned his abilities on himself. He survives as a disembodied consciousness manifested through a pure void in the world.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: Inverted, as (assuming it really is sentient) anything that it perceives and understands is made un-real, or rather erased completely.
SCP-2484 - Parasitic Mayonnaise Worms
- Body Horror: If an amount of SCP-2484 exceeding 235 grams is removed from its container, it will attempt to enter the body of the nearest vertebrate animal, by force if necessary. If any vertebrate animal eats enough SCP-2484, the eggs in SCP-2484 will hatch and grow into worms that consume the victim's body.
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: The eggs of an unknown alien species are in a substance resembling mayonnaise. If a vertebrate animal eats enough of it the eggs will hatch inside the victim's body and grow to up to 12 centimeters long. They will then try to eat each other until only one is left.
SCP-2490 - Chaos Insurgency Special Operative Alpha-19
- Hidden Harasser: SCP-2490's true form is made up of jointed segments with an oblong head. It can generates a field that disguises it as a normal human being. It appears in its real form only to its intended target. It appears near its target repeatedly over a period of weeks and eventually kills it.
SCP-2503 - Estimated Distance: 9,216 Years
- Bigger on the Inside: SCP-2503 is a time-space anomaly associated with a master bedroom of a house in Canada. When someone enters the room through the Portal Door, they end up in another place: a concrete path that stretches to the horizon under a dimly lit sky.
- Portal Door: The door of the master bedroom of a house in Canada leads to a Bigger on the Inside alternate reality consisting of a concrete path under a dark sky.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: Anyone trapped in the alternate universe of SCP-2503 must spend approximately 9,216 years walking inside of it (though without aging or needing to eat, drink, rest or sleep) to get out, while 80 hours pass on Earth.
SCP-2506 - Niles is a Fixer
- Accidental Murder: Sarah teleported a rocket engine from a prototype plane in flight. This wasn't malicious, as she doesn't know where the stuff she "grabs" comes from. It's unknown if anyone died but there was a definite crash.
- Child Prodigy: Sarah's a potential Rocket Scientist who happens to have teleportation powers. She built an F1-Racer from stuff she "asked" her toy animal Niles to get her.
- Magic Feather: Sarah thinks Niles is bringing her all the stuff she needs for her engines, but it's her powers grabbing the stuff.
- Teleportation: Sarah Myo can teleport non-organic physical matter, without line-of-sight, by grabbing it from the universe and teleporting it to her location.
SCP-2507 - A Web Of Cliques
- All-Ghouls School: The conversations of the spider-like members of SCP-2507 refer to events at "Brachypelma Elementary School", which they apparently used to attend. Presumably this is a school whose student body is made up entirely of SCP-2507 (note: Brachypelma is a genus containing several species of tarantula).
- Giant Spider: SCP-2507 are spider-like creatures with an average weight of 45 kilograms (~100 pounds) and average height of 3 meters (~10 feet).
SCP-2515 - Napoleon Crossing the Urals
- Fake Memories: Anyone who sees the painting (whether directly or indirectly through photographs) apparently gains information about the painting (despite the Foundation being unable to find any information on it). They lose the information when they are no longer viewing it.
SCP-2521 - ●●|●●●●●|●●|●See Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2523 - Goblin Market
- Changeling Tale: In one of the listed transactions witnessed in SCP-2523, it is mentioned that a magic costume was exchanged for an 8-year-old boy, whose current whereabouts are unknown.
- Cold Iron: Iron restraints are mentioned twice as being used to restrain the workers.
- The Fair Folk: The workers refer to themselves as the Autumn People, come from a place called "the border country", make mystical deals with people, including trading for children, are apparently restrained by iron and seem to not have a full understanding of time. One makes reference to the Seelie and Unseelie Fae as well. There is also an implied connection between the workers and the entities in SCP-1323.
- Halloween Episode: SCP-2523 is only active for a 24 hour period starting at sundown on Halloween. Bobby, one of the workers, explains that this is when the "gates" between here and "the border country" are open.
- Intangible Price: The workers in SCP-2523 sell anomalous Halloween items in exchange for such things as "The memory of a childhood family trip", "The ability to sing" and "Empathy".
- Land of Faerie: Bobby, one of the workers, mentions his people come from somewhere called "the border country" which can only be reached in autumn. He also makes reference to "the land of youth" and "the land of death."
- A Year and a Day: When a person undergoes an Ejection Event (being thrown out of a SCP-2523 location), they suffer from bad luck for 366 days (365 days + 1 day), a year and a day.
SCP-2525 - Extraterrestrial Broadcaster
- Super Strength: The original SCP-2525 was an alien creature powerful enough to puncture plate steel and break the restraints designed to hold it.
- Technology Uplift: SCP-2525-1 (formerly Junior Researcher T██████ L███) has said that the aliens that sent SCP-2525 (the rocket-like device) did so to provide plans for advanced technology to humanity, and that they had done so for other primitive races as well.
- Telepathy: The original SCP-2525 (currently SCP-2525-N) was an alien creature that could communicate with human beings using telepathy.
SCP-2547 - Dog Days of Summer
- Baleful Polymorph: Anyone deemed to not meet SCP-2547-1's demands is turned into another canid.
- Gods Need Prayer Badly: SCP-2547-1's sermons suggest he's Old Man Coyote trying to rebuild his following.
- Intangible Price: In exchange for the water he stole from the town, SCP-2547-1 will accept material goods ranging from dead cats to peyote and men's button-up shirts, but prefers sexual favors and stories featuring him as the protagonist. After an interview with him the Foundation initiated Protocol DESERT GRASSROOTS to promote stories featuring him, with the result that SCP-2547 manifests less often, but no longer accepts stories as payment.
- Kangaroo Court: In the Keter Duty SCP-001 proposal, this SCP is used to contain SCP-3852 — a phenomenon where a corpse appears in a rural town, the townspeople accuse an innocent of being the killer, then lynch them. SCP-2547 would appear to quarantine the town, with SCP-2547-1 holding a rigged trial to prove the accused's innocence, withholding the town's water supply hostage until innocence is proven, or confounding a jury of non-anomalous humans with circular arguments.
- Sinister Minister: Three days after a pack of the SCP's instances arrive at a town and blockade it, a male coyote wearing a leather jacket will appear (designated SCP-2547-1), and it refers to itself as the Reverend and holds sermons on how modern society has forgotten SCP-2547-1 and its siblings.
- Talking Animal: The instances making up SCP-2547 are canid animals (including dogs, foxes, wolves and coyotes) that are capable of speaking.
SCP-2549 - Animal Assassins
- Animal Assassin: The SCP is a phenomenon that causes a random carnivore to attack and kill a random human.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Anyone not designated as the target will act as if it were a friend or acquaintance, until it has reached and killed the target.
SCP-2557, a Holding of Envelope Logistics®
- Delusions of Eloquence: Appears in the third testimonial, which is from an extradimensional entity attempting to speak English.V❊H❊Q❊H: Commissional, the boozing speech nontronite navigates visions of verbarspermophyta. Dietine overlooker seining, waddywood breathes, full breaths, malacostracology evident. Trip hammer, trip hammer, trip hammer, trip hammer.
- Hostile Show Takeover: Envelope Logistics is a paranormal company which allows people to invest in abstract concepts as if they were buying and selling ordinary stocks and bonds. The company bought the concept of the SCP-2557 database entry from a Foundation employee, allowing them to change the database entry from a description of the company and how it's being contained to an ad for the company, complete with glowing testimonials and even a web form for creating an account with the company.
- Intangible Price: Its entry is one of these itself, with the concept of SCP-2557 as a set of containment procedures being sold to an extradimensional banking firm. The article contains testionials from other investors who have made bank by trading on things such as "cancer rates in Selkirk, Manitoba", "the effectiveness of new HR policies at E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company", and "Tony Blair's poltical career".
- Painting the Medium: Combines this with Hostile Show Takeover. The database entry on SCP-2557 used to describe the Foundation's attempts to contain Envelope Logistics. But then a Foundation employee sold to that company the abstract concept of the database entry on SCP-2557, allowing them to edit the database entry into an ad for their services.
- Trade Snark
- The X of Y
SCP-2565 - Allison Eckhart
- Painting the Medium: Throughout the article, Allison Eckhart, along with her bodily fluids and internal organs (and anything contaminated with any traces of them, such as cloud formations and the people in Australia that they rain on), is continually referred to as Allison Eckhart.
- The End of the World as We Know It: A Group of Interest obtains the waste samples of the titular semantic pointer and uses them to infect the world, causing every physical object on Earth to be defined, perceived, and only able to be referred to as Allison Eckhart.
SCP-2571 - Cragglewood Park
- Amusement Park of Doom: While at first SCP-2571 comes across as a regular amusement park, it becomes more and more apparent that it isn't so simple. Many of the people who experienced dreams of the location describe it as a nightmare no matter how pleasant the dream may seem, with the content of these dreams implying that the kids are only pretending they are having a good time lest the trees see them unhappy. Then of course there is the very real possibility that many of the children seen on the carousel were abducted and evidently erased from history.
- Analog Horror: The only physical evidence of Cragglewood Park is a cassette tape showing a recording of the location.
- Ret-Gone: Those effected by SCP-2571 are all raised as only children, but it is implied that many of the unfamiliar children on the carousel were the dreamer's siblings, having vanished by whatever anomaly that causes the nightmares.
- The Trees Have Faces: A recurring trend in Cragglewood Park is the presence of trees with faces (many of the dreamers claiming that they resemble their own), often singing or laughing, and seem to induce an almost psychotic terror in the dreamer. Whatever they are, the children at Cragglewood are terrified of the trees and will pretend to be happy to avoid... whatever they would do otherwise.
SCP-2578 - "This Machine Kills Fascists"
- Affably Evil: Evil being subjective, the tone it expresses through its emails seem genuine in its benevolence to people. It ends most of its emails with reassurances of its love.
- Cool Ship: 2578-D is a horseshoe-crab-shaped ship 3 meters in length that is used to carry out the executions. The Foundation theorizes that there is no utilitarian reason why the spaceship looks like a horseshoe crab, and that it is a purely aesthetic choice.
- Dirty Coward: SCP-2578 makes a point of warning its targets 72 hours in advance. Ioan Lupescu, president-elect of Romania, grew agitated as his scheduled time got closer, and let his 4-year-old daughter ride on his shoulders, implying that he tried to use his daughter as a human shield; 2578 simply broke from its usual modus operandi and shot him in the chest instead.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It is an extraterrestrial machine that kills totalitarian leaders. (Though, it you want to get pedantic, none of the specifically mentioned leaders it kills are fascists, just tyrants of other political leanings. But "This machine kills tyrants" wouldn't be a cool Woody Guthrie quote.)
- Friendly Sniper: 2578 is always affable and polite in its communications to the people it's protecting and the Foundation. It's also never missed a shot.
- Hurl It into the Sun: After 2578-D destroyed SCP-1427, it took the latter's remains into orbit; the fragments of 1427 were last seen drifting towards the sun.
- Judge, Jury, and Executioner: As a representative of the [Triple Crescent] Initiative, a sort of multiversal police force, SCP-2578 unilaterally judges and executes political leaders. Interestingly, it warns its targets 72 hours in advance, and will cancel the execution if the target repents of their actions or resigns.
- Not So Stoic: Downplayed. When it failed to kill SCP-682, SCP-2578 sent a mail where it pointed out that it did not miss, suggesting that it finds such insinuations offensive.
- Orbital Bombardment: Its preferred method of tyrant removal is to snipe its targets in the head from orbit.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: Mercilessly murders tyrants if they don't step down or repent of their actions.
- Shoot the Hostage Taker: One of the targets tried to save himself by using a young girl as a human shield. SCP-2578 made a point of shooting him through the chest—rather than the head—to avoid injuring his hostage.
- Shout-Out: The title is a reference to the text on Woody Guthrie's guitar.
- Sigil Spam: 2578 makes its presence known by the symbol of three crescent moons, which it uses as the address name in its emails and are on 2578-D.
- Totalitarian Utilitarian: It ironically acts as a benevolent dictator with trying to help humans as a whole by forcing tyrannical leaders to either accept its demands or get murdered.
- Tyrannicide: Its entire purpose is to execute those it deems tyrants.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Its methods aren't exactly subtle, even if it claims they are benevolent, causing the Foundation to have to scapegoat D-Class for 2578's murders. An example of its extreme methods is when 2578 destroyed SCP-1427 causing the latter to send a giant psychic backlash, horribly breaking the minds of those it affected. 2578 then sent an email saying that while it regrets the outcome, the people on a whole are still better off than a day before.
- The Worf Effect: SCP-1427 was a Keter-level, mind-affecting anomaly so serious, the SCP Foundation had to prop up the government of North Korea just to contain it. SCP-2578 destroys it in less than ten minutes, albeit suffering severe (though not irreparable) structural damage from energy expenditure in the process. (And the original author of SCP-1427 was totally cool with his SCP being neutralized like that.)
SCP-2590 - Trailer Trash
- Bigger on the Inside: When Alpha Squad followed SCP-2590 into an abandoned warehouse, it ended up going down a kilometer-long tunnel that doesn't exist in the real world.
- Year Outside, Hour Inside: During its pursuit of SCP-2590, Alpha Squad lost contact with the Foundation. When it re-appeared almost three and a half years later, as far as it was concerned only fifteen minutes had passed.
SCP-2592 - Milk and Bananas
- Supernatural Fear Inducer: If SCP-2592 is frightened or startled, it will use its Telepathy ability to cause intense fear in any human beings nearby.
- Telepathy: SCP-2592 can use its telepathy in the following ways.
- Detect the presence of human beings within 5 meters.
- Transmit hallucinations of the beach near its old home and the sound of ocean surf to all humans within ten meters.
- When frightened or startled, induce intense fear or pain in nearby human beings. Prolonged exposure can cause neurological trauma.
SCP-2599 - Not Good Enough
- Cute Bruiser: A 14-year-old Korean girl... who can curb-stomp 682 with her bare hands. She might have been capable of killing it too had 682 not taken advantage of 2599's inability to completely fulfill what is requested of her.
- Fate Worse than Death: One of the orders was for her to kill a D-Class the researchers mortally wounded. She healed him into a vegetative state.
- Heads, Tails, Edge: When she was ordered to flip a coin so that it landed on heads, it landed on edge 24 times in a row.
- Instant Expert: When ordered to play a complex piece of music, she did it without a problem (well, with the usual limitations), despite never playing any instrument in her life.
- Reality-Breaking Paradox: When given a Logic Bomb order, reality literally started breaking apart around her until another order was given.
- Reality Warper: Can fulfill any request, no matter how impossible, but never follows it to the end, hence her name "Not Good Enough".
SCP-2600 - The Empty Box
SCP-2602 - Exbibliothetic
- Gas Leak Cover Up: Appears to be the subject of a particularly forceful and memetic one. It's clear that some serious stuff is going on there - torture devices, radiation, suspicious shrines, a toxic waste pit - but whatever anamlous effect its under forces people thinking about it to believe those things are either normal for an ex-library, or to creatively reinterpret them as library standards (IE, the torture devices become "book binding machines"). As noted in the report, this means that no one can ever refer to what was going on in the building between the time it ceased to be a library and when the Foundation found it - rendering the entire time Unpersoned.
- Implausible Deniability: All anomalous attributes of SCP-2602 are due to the fact that it used to be a library. This includes the presence of Artifacts of Doom, a deadly wastepit, and what appears to be a cult ritual chamber lined with human skulls.
- Insistent Terminology: Anyone referring to the SCP, which used to be a library, always mentions that it used to be a library.
- Painting the Medium: The SCP, which used to be a library, causes people to reference that it used to be a library. Accordingly, the article is filled with the fact that the SCP used to be a library. This even goes outside of the article, as all links on the SCP wiki to the article will include the fact that it used to be a library.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: The key anomalous attribute of SCP-2601, which used to be library, is that all all other anomalous attributes of the SCP (which are very many, as one would expect from a former library) will attributed to the fact that it used to be a library.
SCP-2606 - Verminous Vessel
- Fictional Color: When a person under the influence of SCP-2606 made telepathic contact with an octopus, they saw vivid colors that they could not describe, presumably those that an octopus can see but humans can't.
- Telepathy: SCP-2606 is a drinking glass made from polished amber. If any body part of a creature generally considered to be "vermin" is put in SCP-2606 and a human being consumes the body part, the person gains the ability to read the minds of all examples of that creature within ten meters.
SCP-2610 - Procreation
- Body Horror: SCP-2610-E are altered human beings produced by genetic engineering and inbreeding. They have a variety of serious physical differences such as added or missing body parts (limbs, eyes, ears, etc.), collapsed rib cages, protruding stomachs and large growths.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-2610-E are mutated human beings who are effectively immune to small arms fire.
- Meaningful Name: The designation, SCP-2610, is very evocative of SCP-610, and works well with the SCP's implicit connections to sarkicism.
- Never Found the Body: After Incident Tango-Tango, the ships carrying the entire Colony are sunk. However, the remains of Simeon, Armond, or Yvette Avakian were not found in the wreckage, making it possible that they might have escaped.
- Seeing Through Another's Eyes: SCP-2610-A (Simeon Avakian) can use his telepathy ability to enter the mind of a lobotomized patient and use their senses, including seeing through their eyes and hearing through their ears.
- Super Strength: The mutated humans known as SCP-2610-E are described in a report as being "Inhumanly strong" and capable of ripping a human being apart limb from limb.
- Telepathy: SCP-2610-A (Simeon Avakian) has the ability to mentally reach out and see the images and impulses in other people's minds.
- Villainous Incest: One of the many squicky things about the article is that all the 2610-Es were born from the "seeding" between -C (Yvette Avakian) and her brothers.
- White Sheep: Simeon's journal notes that his youngest brother (-D, Jorge Avakian), while initially cooperative in deliverance, ended up resisting them and attempts to conspire against the group. He was fed to the SCP-2610-Es (or "the children" as Simeon calls them).
SCP-2612 - A Donkey and Its Cart
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: People in the past thought that the donkey was responsible for carrying all the woes and responsibilities of the world, and the weight got heavier and heavier until it became Atlas. So the site director neutralized it by convincing the containment team that it was just another cognitohazard like that book which turned into a hypochondriac money sink.
- Dumb Muscle: The donkey is sentient and ancient, and capable of pulling a 2,000,000-ton cart of nuclear dirt, but is also outright stupid. At no point did it ever realize that it could convince others that it was just a stupid donkey pulling a cart of dirt and people would will it back into its original form. The site director went a little further and turned it into a lawn ornament.
SCP-2615 - If You Believe and SCP-2615-J - Clap Your Hands
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Members of SCP-2615 have an internal organ that enables them to make minor local alterations to reality - essentially a 'magic gland'.
- Broken Masquerade: Complete manifestation of SCP-2615 would result in this for all anomalies - and anyone who knows anything about the Foundation will know that for them, this is not an option.
- Changeling Tale: A common occurrence around the Middle Ages of the full-manifestation timeline.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: To the point that it's right there in the title - but it doesn't just apply to the present moment...
- Cold Iron: One of the Mobile Task Forces that deals with SCP-2615 manifestations is named after it. The history of the full-manifestation timeline contains a mundane source of fairies' fear of it: early observation of tetanus infections.
- Cosmic Retcon: Their presence in not just the universe but its entire timeline is directly proportional to how many people believe in them.
- Cross-Referenced Titles: The phrase 'clap your hands if you believe' is split between the titles of the two articles.
- The Fair Folk: The real deal - though not quite as far-fetched than commonly believed. They're not tiny or winged, for starters.
- Hidden in Plain Sight: In more ways than one (i.e. two). Containing SCP-2615 involved reducing belief in them, which involved spreading wild rumors and stories about them being tiny and having butterfly wings etc. But with all the impossible stuff the Foundation deals with, its faculty are particularly likely to seriously consider that fairies are real in some form, despite all the embellishments, necessitating a -J joke article that makes the concept of fairies secretly being an SCP look ridiculous.
- Land of Faerie: In the full-manifestation timeline, the 'fairy' nations become chock full of anomalies.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Indeed, the fact that the 'fairies' differ significantly from the common public view of the concept is the entire point of the Foundation's popularization of that view in the first place.
- Painting the Fourth Wall: SCP-2615-J is in the -J list like any other -J entry.
- Real Event, Fictional Cause: Containing SCP-2615 required the Foundation to invent the concept of fairies.
SCP-2622 - Ambassador from the Mole People
- The Münchausen: SCP-2622 tells bizarre stories about gigantic underground caverns and the civilizations that live in them. His stories repeatedly contradict each other and despite extensive investigation the Foundation hasn't been able to find any evidence at all to support them.
- Silicon-Based Life: According to SCP-2622's stories there's a cavern called The Fire Plain located under the south-central Pacific Ocean. It's inhabited by silicon-based crystal animals.
- Weakened by the Light: SCP-2622 is extremely sensitive to light. He experiences severe eye pain in normal (or brighter) lighting conditions.
SCP-2635 - Hot Potato
- Spontaneous Combustion: If the SCP is held by an organization for a year, half of its members will die in this manner. If it's held by one person for a year, they will die the same way.
SCP-2645 - Through the Looking Glass
- Alternate Universe: The anomalous mirror SCP-2645 has another universe accessible through its mirrored surface that is initially identical to the SCP Foundation's universe. The contents of that universe can be changed by the influence of entities in the Foundation's universe.
- Magic Mirror: SCP-2645 is a full-length mirror which connects to an identical Alternate Universe. When anything touches the surface of SCP-2645, instead of touching the mirror's surface it touches a duplicate of itself from the other universe.
SCP-2650 - Pediatric Pupaphobia
- Food Pills: SCP-2650-B is the body of a former ventriloquist and magician who is still alive despite having a wooden sphere in place of his brain. He is fed Capsule Rations (food in capsule form).
- The Virus: SCP-2650-B is the body of a former ventriloquist and magician who is still alive despite having a wooden sphere in place of his brain. If SCP-2650-B can get a preadolescent child (between the ages of 5 and 9) alone, he can change them so that they're like him and under his control.
SCP-2656 - The Idiot Box
- Body Horror: When it's switched on, it will cause irreversible brain damage (including dissection) to any human subjects that view it for longer than a few seconds.
SCP-2657 - Puppet Master
- Giant Spider: It is an orb-weaving spider 2.7 m (around nine feet) across.
- It Can Think: Downplayed. The capture log shows that it was practicing building lures, getting better and better with experience. However, the attempt to interview it clearly shows that it has no actual understanding of the speech it mimics. It may be smarter than the average spider, but it's still just an animal.
- Monster Is a Mommy: SCP-2657 is female and had a nest of eggs. Most of these were destroyed, but some were hatched and dissected.
- To Serve Man: Killed and ate a number of people before being captured, and even developed a strategy to lure people in by mimicking a child in distress. That child is implied to have been its first victim.
- Voice Changeling: It can perfectly mimic sounds it has heard, including human voices, and couples these sounds with puppets made out of webbing to make a more effective lure. It prefers to mimic a young girl's cries for help, implied to be those of its first victim. Notably, it does not actually understand what it's saying - it only knows that certain words and phrases lure people in, and when spoken to it just mindlessly repeats those words.
SCP-2662 - cthulhu f'UCK OFF!
- Brown Note Being: He is classified as a "cognitohazardous entity", as any human who spends regular interactions with him is driven mad with a desire to worship him in increasingly esoteric and perverse ways, with cults manifesting around his worship at least once a month that the SCP Foundation has to put up with. Unfortunately for him, SCP-2662 has no way of turning this off and finds their insane devotion to him off-putting and unsanitary.
- Conditioned to Accept Horror: While he is still disgusted by his worshipers' actions, he's grown somewhat accustomed to it, albeit annoyed.<8:29> SCP-2662 attempts to read its newspaper. Researcher ████ slits the piglet's neck and throws it onto the table. Blood splatters the newspaper.<8:30> SCP-2662: "I- what? Look, can you go read a bible or something? You really, really need it."
- Cult: At least once a month a cult will spring around the worship of him, usually by doing inhuman practices and somehow breaking into his containment to do it in front of him. He wishes they would stop doing blood orgies.
- Eldritch Abomination: Played for Laughs; it's basically a teenage equivalent to an Elder God that does normal teen stuff, and really hates the cults that come to him to the point of having the Foundation contain him.
- Humanoid Abomination: He's vaguely humanoid standing 4 meters in height with 20 vestigial tentacles on his back and is a Brown Note Being that inspires worship and madness onto humans below a 2 on the Mind-Affecting Resistance Scale. Personality wise, he's just a teenager with a love for video games.
- Leaking Can of Evil: A case where the evil would very much like for the can to stop leaking, but isn't able to.
- Might as Well Not Be in Prison at All: Being in prison is actually instrumental to his goal (which is currently being left alone), he has everything he needs or wants while in prison, and he anticipates that he'll eventually grow strong enough to break out if he really wants to. He might even be right. Oh, and The Guards Must Be Crazy is often entirely literal.
- Shower of Angst: The reaction to one cult managing to break into its bedroom at 4:00AM:SCP-2662 moves to the shower stall and turns on the water. It sits in the shower stall for the remainder of the incident.
- Stop Worshipping Me: His attitude towards the many cultists that break into his room.
- Teens Are Monsters: Averted (inverted?): This teenage horror just wants to be left alone, specifically because he's the equivalent of a teenager, but plans to be a more standard cosmic horror when he grows up a bit.
- Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: He is completely disgusted by the rituals his cultists enact in his name.
- Unwanted Harem: Even online he attracts unwanted attention.
SCP-2663 - Dionysus
- Hive Mind: SCP-2663 is 250 pounds of yeast. The individual cells are normal, but when they're together they have the intelligence of an adult human being.
- Telepathy: SCP-2663 can use telepathy to communicate with anyone within 10 meters.
SCP-2669 - Khevtuul 1
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Dr. Tareen is headed back home. Fast. Data indicates the speed she's going to impact with is not going to be good for the planet.
- Godzilla Threshold: The Foundation is so desperate in their attempts to stop SCP-2669 that they upload the minds of a coma patient and a newborn baby to the probe just to distract Dr. Tareen.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: Turns out being alone in space and finding nothing but dead, lifeless rocks isn't good for one's sanity.
- The Sociopath: Dr. Tareen's madness has made her apathetic to the Foundation's attempts to persuade her and sadistic in her efforts to return to her body.
SCP-2679 - The Many Graves of Jeannette Parslov
- Body Horror: Each successive body in SCP-2679 evolves into something that can better survive and escape its grave until it no longer resembles anything human.
- Determinator: Jeannette Parslov is determined to rise from her grave and return to her family. Too bad it cost her humanity.
- Goal-Oriented Evolution: All the bodies found in SCP-2679 are the results of Jeannette Parslov evolving so she can escape her grave.
SCP-2682 - The Blind Idiot
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: It claims to have been beyond, and it can hear you laughing (though the author says those are the Pattern Screamers that appear in some SCPs).
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: It ascended from a primitive being and consumed the gods of eight separate dimensions.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: According to its writer, it ate itself upon figuring out what a raspberry was.
- Humans Through Alien Eyes: A thorough example, helped by speaking way too dumb for a supposed higher intelligence.
- Shout-Out: The title "The Blind Idiot" is a reference to the "blind idiot god" Azathoth in H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.
- Starfish Aliens: SCP-2682 came from a dimension with some really alien concepts.
SCP-2686 - Moon Wizard
- Familiar: He claims to have a cat named "Commodore Buckles" who brings him food, but the Foundation has never seen it.
- Lunacy: The wizard draws his power from moonlight. Unfortunately, this means he has no power on the moon.
- Wizard Classic: Wears the stereotypical Robe and Wizard Hat, and claims to have traditional wizard powers.
- Wizards from Outer Space: He's a wizard on the moon. Unfortunately, since he draws his power from "the light of the moon above", and while he's on the moon all of the moon is below him, he has no way of getting back to Earth.
SCP-2700 - Teleforce
- Apocalypse How: Class X-4 Universal Destruction. The particles the death ray fires are not plasma. They are anomalous particles with reverse entropic properties, and will cause the entire universe to undergo a Big Crunch (a YK-Class Entropic Annihilation Event) when they are programmed to fire in 2234.
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Nikola Tesla successfully invented a Death Ray, with technology that is waaay ahead of his time. It's not just that. Tesla traveled to an Alternate Dimension with a Dimensional Traveler to help the traveler's scientific ventures and to help invent his death ray.
- Death Ray: THE Tesla death ray, teleforce, with some highly advanced technology allowing it to fire plasma streams. Except that it's not firing plasma. It fires a bundle of particles with reversed entropy flow, and could turn the entire universe's time backwards should it fire.
- Mundane Utility: The SCP's study of Tesla's document regarding 2700 within SCP-2400 led them to accidentally created another, stable version of 2700, which acts as a Perpetual Motion Machine and is used to power SCP's site within SCP-2400. Due to unintentional creation, the plan to reverse the creation of the reactor in order to discover the precise way to stabilize 2700 on Earth is still pending O5 approval due to possibility of YK-class event.
- Humans Are Bastards: Tesla holds this view after his own travel to the alternate dimension. He saw how the world around him is breaking down into a political mess (he was near the onset of World War 1), and he saw how he himself tried to go to a peaceful universe to complete a weapon of war. He found humanity to be vastly inferior to the Alternate Dimension he traveled to, and decided to bring the teleforce back just to not doom the superior universe.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: The Watcher (one of the aliens Tesla met in the Alternate Dimension) holds this view on humans after viewing Tesla's journal. He realized that Tesla was here to build a weapon for war, not to advance science. He decided to rig Tesla's death ray into firing the reverse entropic particles.
SCP-2701 - True Solitary
- Fate Worse than Death: The last release date marked on the form is in the 34th century, meaning that some prisoners sent into cell 667 would experience at least 300,000 years of full sensory deprivation.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: People put inside cell 667 experience full sensory deprivation, suffering mental trauma that causes cognitive shutdown or mania. Those incarcerated for less than two hours end up with one or more phobias (such as nyctophobia, photophobia, claustrophobia or agoraphobia) or serious mental illnesses such as dementia, catatonia and anorexia. Those spending more than 2 hours inside usually suffer a complete psychological breakdown.
- Hellhole Prison: ███████ State Penitentiary, the prison that housed cell 667, was turned into an atypical hellhole prison, where every single prisoner is locked in a nigh-eternal state of sensory deprivation.
- Number of the Beast: Cell 667, the cell with supernatural properties, is 666 + 1.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: After years of overseeing depraved prisoners and one criminal incident that targeted his daughter, Emily, prison warden Samuel Decard snapped and sent every single prisoner into cell 667.
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: On the date that a prisoner is scheduled to be released, the door of cell 667 closes and locks at midnight and the prisoner reappears within the cell.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: A person stored in cell 667 experiences a period of incarceration 300-400 times as long as occurs in the real world. One prisoner was in the cell for 15 minutes and thought he had been inside for weeks. Someone inside it for two hours would experience a period of 25-33 days.
SCP-2703 - For A Good Time Call
- Benevolent Monsters: Despite what you'd think, she has no ulterior motive when it comes to interacting with humans. All she wants is to have a fun night on the town; she even conjures up cash to pay for the dinner-and-a-movie.
- Innocent Innuendo: She's ignorant of the... unsavory connotations of the phrase "For a good time, call [phone number]". In fact, she'll only manifest if one has the phrase's literal meaning in mind when calling her. Even then, she'll only go to relatively innocuous locales like restaurants, movie theaters and bars.
- Large Ham: While there are no interview logs, her penchant for singing in a operatic style as normal speech certainly implies this. That, and she likes to refer to herself as "Countess of Folas, Duchess of Fatyma and Marquisette of Dispria".
- Mix-and-Match Critters: She's a three-legged bird-like creature... with leopard's ears, goat/antelope horns, and even some tentacles. And she's just shy of six feet tall.
SCP-2709 - Can Anyone Hear You Scream?
- Dig Attack: SCP-2709-1 is a huge antlion that digs and lives in underground tunnels. It attacks human beings by collapsing the ground under their feet and eating them.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-2709-1 is a gigantic antlion (insect) with inch-thick chitin skin armor, which causes bullets to be ineffective against it.
- Supernatural Fear Inducer: SCP-2709-1, a gigantic antlion, releases an anomalous chemical that causes terror in all animals (except human beings). Between sundown and sun-up, all animals within 8 kilometers of SCP-2709-1 flee until they are 8 kilometers away from it, and all animals between 8 and 10 kilometers away from it vocalize as loudly as possible and attack all nearby human beings.
- Tunnel King: SCP-2709-1 is a giant anomalous antlion that digs tunnels underground. It performs a Dig Attack on human beings by collapsing the ground under their feet.
SCP-2718 - What Happens After
- Ambiguous Situation: There are at least four ways to interpret this report, with evidence supporting any of them.
- Roger's story is completely true, and the afterlife for everyone really is eternal, meaningless torment.
- Roger's story is false, but the story itself is a cognitohazard that makes anyone who hears it irrationally fearful of it.
- Roger's story is only partly true. The eternity of torture he describes is real, but only those who believe in it are subjected to it. Hence why the SCP article is a cognitohazard.
- Roger's story is true but the eternal torment he suffered after death only happened to him due to the unique circumstances of his death and resurrection, hence the acknowledged contradiction with afterlife pertaining SCPs and anomalies. The group of interest page for the Dark Web, which is used by Marshal, Carter, and Dark as an ultra-high-security network, gives evidence that it is not a natural afterlife, but one given to those who will be brought back from the dead in the future.
- And I Must Scream: SCP-2718 reveals - or at least, the story and experience from the Overseer who claims to have experienced states - that there is no peace after death. The dead suffer through every inch of their physical body's deterioration, slowly and agonizingly living through an eternal and endless torture as their body rots and decays and disintegrates into nothingness, and even then, the pain won't end.
- Back from the Dead: Roger Sheldon was genuinely revived, as opposed to being a replica or having their caused of death undone, such that it would allow them to retain memory of what happens after death. It turned out to be Things Man Was Not Meant to Know.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Roger is so unwilling to go back to the afterlife that he decides to head into SCP-106's containment chamber instead. It's unknown if he got exactly what he was hoping for...or if he failed.
- Easter Egg: There is some hidden text at the bottom of the page: Ρωγερ, έχετε καταβληθεί τιμή, σοι μετατίθημι στον παράδεισο. Which which, when translated from Greek to English is: Roger, you've paid the price, you're in paradise.
- Fate Worse than Death: Inverted for Roger, who stares anything — being eternally tortured in hell, SCP-106's pocket dimension, etc — would be preferable to what he experienced after his death. And if Roger is to be believed, subverted as this is what awaits all who die.
- Fling a Light into the Future: The only record of SCP-2718's existence is a recording made by O5-7 right before O5-1 had her gunned down. In it, she begs whoever discovers it to find a way to save her and all others who have died from their hellish fates.O5-7: I beg you: this gnosis must not be erased, forgotten. That is not containment. That is madness. Bring us back. Get us out.
- Kick the Dog: How does O5-1 reward Roger for informing the council about SCP-2718? He intends to kill him again.
- Mortality Phobia: Roger has it after being resurrected. Once he's finished telling his story, the rest of the O5s have it too. It is implied in the article that the sudden, abrupt, and extreme shift in everyone's attitude is itself evidence that this SCP is actually a cognitohazard that makes people incredibly terrified of death, which is why the amnestics are employed by one of the Overseers who realizes the threat.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Assuming that SCP-2718 is merely a cognitohazard that causes you to believe it or makes it the afterlife of those exposed, then O5-7 unwittingly doomed who know how many to eternal agony for nothing by writing the only remaining vector for it, only realizing the possibility after they've already put it down in an impossible to revise/edit/delete document.
- OOC Is Serious Business: The O5s, who deal with potentially world-ending calamities on a daily basis, are absolutely terrified of SCP-2718, and for good reason. They're no safer from it than anyone else. It is implied that the out of character actions of the O5s is in fact caused by a cognitohazard making them uncharacteristically terrified of death and that O5-1 actually recognized its nature and tried to contain it with amnestics.
- Schmuck Bait: Its status as a DAMMERUNG-class cognitohazard isn't exactly subtle, and the guy who set up the warnings at O5-7's request couldn't resist reading it after doing so. He obviously regrets it afterward.
- These Are Things Man Was Not Meant to Know: The O5 council is desperate to make sure nobody ever finds out what SCP-2718 actually is, not even themselves. That includes taking amnestics and killing anyone with knowledge of it. When O5-7 attempts to run as O5-1 gases the council with amnestics, she ends up getting gunned down. The rest of the council take her recording of the session, the only possible vector for knowledge of SCP-2718 to escape, and lock it away.
- What Year Is This?: Part of the containment procedures — or rather, the "reduce the chances someone will come across this article ever again" procedures — involves sending a researcher to try to make the article swapping process take longer, minimizing the amount of time this article is in the database, who is then directed to take a "Behemoth-class" amnestic. If they are able to recall the current year or the current U.S. President (thus implying that the amnestic takes off years of the user's life), the poor researcher is terminated (as it means they didn't take the amnestic, or it was defective).
SCP-2733 - The Body Storage Cabinet
- Imagination-Based Superpower: If a person opens any of the cabinet's doors and thinks of a deceased person or pet, then the cabinet will conjure the head of the person or pet that was being thought of. The head is fully capable of functioning much like if it was still alive, and will disappear once the cabinet doors are closed.
SCP-2735 - Ancient Methanogens
- Cabin Fever: 2735-4 ends up murdering 2735-2 when the latter stops trying to escape containment, and then tries to kill itself.
- Fling a Light into the Future: SCP-2735 was all but wiped out by an unnamed disaster (implied to be the emergence of oxygen-breathing life) and only four of them survived.
- Starfish Language: The SCP-2735 instances communicate through bioluminescence and body language. They also quite literally resemble starfish.
- Last of His Kind: They're the only four SCP-2735 left.
- Losing the Team Spirit: In their second escape attempt, 2735-1 and 2735-3 give up halfway through. Only 2735-4 tries to break out a third time.
- Ultra Terrestrials: They were the dominant form of life on Earth a couple billion years ago.
- Abstract Eater: True to its home of the grove of names, TATTLETALE erases the names of anyone it kills.
- Animal Motifs: Chameleons. TATTLETALE has a chameleon head and is associated with being difficult to properly track down.
- Death by Irony: If you (Miller) chicken out of sending the report or wait too long, the SIMULACRA fries your brain and kills you instantly due to a programming error. The irony comes in the fact that TATTLETALE is not actually a threat, yet failing to rise up against it kills Miller anyways.
- Secret Test of Character: TATTLETALE does not exist. It is the fictional antagonist of a full-dive Virtual Reality simulation used by the Foundation to test for altruism. Unfortunately for everyone, a bug in the system means the threat posed by the entity is, ironically, very real.
- Super-Persistent Predator: TATTLETALE stops at nothing to hunt its target once they learn about it.
- Virtual Reality: Reaching the end reveals TATTLETALE isn't real and is just part of a convincing Foundation simulation to test for altruism. However, a programming bug means failing the test kills subjects for real anyways.
SCP-2746 - ████ is dead.
- Civilized Animal: The former inhabitants of Eden were immortal beings who took the form of different animals.
- Driven to Suicide: After everyone else was either exiled or voluntarily left, Suwaird and Sari decided to kill themselves and be reborn as humans to escape from the guilt of the horrible things they did.
- Garden of Eden: It is Eden. It turns out that Eden isn't in the middle east, it is actually in Las Vegas, and it turns out that there was far more to the story of Eden that what made it into the Bible.
- Fisher Kingdom: Humans who step through the portal to Eden transform into Talking Animals and change back when they leave. Animals that enter also gain the physical ability to talk but don't become any smarter.
- Horror Hunger: After humans were banned from Eden, the immortals who lived there were cursed with needing to eat or else they would go crazy. Since Eden's food suplies were limited, they were forced to eat each other.
- Myth Arc: SCP-2746 is part of the Pitch Haven myth arc, which includes SCP-1903, SCP-1913, and SCP-2999.
- Rage Against the Heavens: The former king and queen of Eden lead a rebelion against the Maker after he cursed the entire population with hunger, which they felt was unfair.
- Sugar Apocalypse: Eden went from a paradise to a nightmare after the immortals who lived there were cursed with Horror Hunger and had to eat each other to avoid going crazy. A massive rebelion took place and the rebels had horrific punishments inflicted on them by the loyalists, including maiming and crucifixion.
SCP-2747 - As below, so above
- Arc Number: The number 7 is used repeatedly in the article. There are seven examples of works affected by SCP-2747 (all of which prominently feature 7), seven footnotes, and seven crosslinks to other SCP's. It's implied that the seventh of all of these things is the "core" that leads to the anomaly. Several of the works feature six of something (characters, settings, etc.), implying a seventh one that is never revealed. The last cited work, ex lux, centers around the concept of interconnected narrative, and the last crosslink leads to Swann's 001 proposal (i.e. the real world). The ending of SCP-5317 also claims that the Scarlet King's own use of the number is yet another one of the anafabula's schemes.
- Central Theme: SCP-2747-affected works are either incomplete, or have endings with a lot of uncertainty or incompleteness. The protagonist of Punta de la espira dies no closer to his goal than when he started; the protagonist of Taitoru is literally consumed by her creative block; No Sister of Mine is Unwinnable; the MacGuffin-wielding antagonist of the Scolipendra Wiki never appeared; I/O is described as "never quite touching upon the dreadful center"; the protagonist of Mavigne wakes up just before he can describe the last part of his journey; and the murderer(s) and victim(s) in ex lux are never discovered. And you end the SCP-2747 article on [DATA LOST].
- Eldritch Abomination: It's described as an "anafabula", or anti-narrative, that feeds upon other narratives. And it works upward, so a Show Within a Show would be destroyed first, followed by the show itself.
- Greater-Scope Villain: According to SCP-5317, the anafabula is responsible for manipulating the Scarlet King into providing narratives it can eat.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall:
- SCP-2747 is never directly observed in action, but its results can be observed as second and third-hand descriptions to a non-existent work. If you replace "work" with "organization", that is exactly what the SCP Wiki looks like.
- SCP-2747 works are incomplete, or have open-ended endings. The SCP Wiki is never "complete".
- The Scolipendra Wiki is deduced to be an online collaborative fictional universe belonging to the horror, speculative fiction, and weird fiction genres, and has fanfictions on fanfiction.net. Notice how Scolipendra contains "S", "C", and "P" in order and how the rest of the description falls directly in line with the SCP Wiki.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Taken at face value, Appendix B is this. If the Appendix was "lost", that means the anafabula took it. Which means that the SCP Foundation's universe is already on the way to destruction. And so is the universe containing the Foundation's universe.
- Meaningful Name: "Fabula" is a real term from the Russian formalism school of literary criticism that refers to the chronological arrangement of events within a story. Thus an "anafabula", (using the Greek root "ana-", meaning "up", "against", "back" or "re-") can literally be read to mean "against chronological order", which is exactly what the entity does.
- Nothing Is Scarier: There are several references to an Appendix B. What's in that appendix? It's supposed to be more information on the anafabula, but all that's written is [DATA LOST]. Not expunged, not redacted, lost.
- Ret-Gone: Has this effect on narratives, including books, music, websites, and video games. References to the narrative exist, but the actual narrative is gone from reality.
- Self-Demonstrating Article: The fictional works affected by SCP-2747 include certain common elements, including dealing with nested metafictions, a sense of incompleteness, a certain amount of missing content, and a lack of a conventional ending, all of which apply to the SCP-2747 article itself. And as a result of compiling all the findings from SCP-2747-affected works into Appendix B, the article itself became affected by SCP-2747, which manifested inside the appendix and ate it.
- Story-Breaker Power: As an entity that literally destroys stories from reality, the anafabula is considered as one of the most powerful entities in the entire multiverse that could theoretically bring any canon or individual timeline on the wiki to a screeching halt. That being said, the only mention of the full scope of its power is in SCP-5317, where Pierre Maynard/Don Quixote discovers a seal that eventually reveals it is playing the Scarlet King like a fiddle.
SCP-2750 - Navajo Skinwalkers
- Deliberate Values Dissonance: Much like SCP-1851-EX, the article doesn't shy away from the racial violence in the early days of the United States. And much like 1851-EX, the modern Foundation looks back on past events and tries to learn their lesson from them.
- Eyes Are Mental: Regardless of what form a SCP-2750 shapechanges into, it will always have the eyes of its favorite animal shape.
- Final Solution: The solution that one of the Foundation predecessor organizations (American Secure Containment Initiative, ASCI) created to contain the threat of the skinwalkers is plain and simple - exterminating every single one of them.
- Magical Native American: Well, the skinwalkers are indeed deeply related to the Navajo.
- Partial Transformation: After most of their population was wiped out, the remaining SCP-2750 were forced into inbreeding. As a result, modern day SCP-2750 are sometimes trapped in transition between their animal and human forms.
- Telepathy: According to the Navajo, an SCP-2750 knows whatever a man is pondering (i.e. reads his thoughts).
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: All member of the original SCP-2750 could change into at least five different animals found in the southwest U.S., such as crows, wolves, coyotes, eagles and foxes. Some members could change into nine or more types of animals.
SCP-2756 - Surreal Landscaper
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: SCP-2756 is an anomalous infection that causes extra organs (such as eyes) to grow at random locations on living creatures. One SCP-2756 victim has extra eyes growing on their abdomen and forearm.
- Kill It with Fire: Burning has been found to be the most effective way to destroy victims of infection by SCP-2756. Once each month, at least fifteen members of the Foundation containment site use flamethrowers to burn hostile SCP-2756 victims.
- Mutants: SCP-2756 is an anomalous disease of unknown origin that mutates living creatures, causing extra organs to grow on random parts of their bodies.
SCP-2757 - Dr. Wondertainment's Projector Fantastico
- Shrink Ray: When the SCP-2757 projector is used with the film SCP-2757-1g Professor Abnormal's 101 Experiments, one of the devices used on the experimental subjects is a Shrink Ray.
- Super Intelligence: When the SCP-2757 projector is used with the film SCP-2757-1g Professor Abnormal's 101 Experiments, one of the devices used on the experimental subjects is an intelligence enhancer. The subject retains their high intelligence after the experiment ends.
- Teleportation: When the SCP-2757 projector is used with the film SCP-2757-1g Professor Abnormal's 101 Experiments, one of the devices used on the experimental subjects is a teleportation device.
SCP-2764 - The Eldritch Antarctic
- Alien Geometries: The area in a radius of 50 kilometers around the Eldritch Abomination SCP-2764 is subject to alterations in time and space that cause great difficulties for mortal beings (like humans). SCP-2764 appears to decrease in size as observers approach it, and it sometimes appears to teleport from place to place within the area, indicating that its position in inherently uncertain.
- Eldritch Abomination: SCP-2764 is a creature that is approximately 382 meters tall and weighs over 150,000 metric tons. It has around 80 large tentacles that it uses for movement and manipulation, and can communicate using telepathy. It generates an area of Alien Geometries around it, causing difficulty with observations of it.
- Telepathy: SCP-2764 is a gigantic Eldritch Abomination found in the Antarctic. It can use telepathy to send messages to other creatures up to tens of kilometers away, but apparently cannot receive replies. It communicates in the native language of the creature it's speaking to.
SCP-61231 - An Honest Buck
- Anti-Advice: His containment procedures are an example of this. note
- Confusing Multiple Negatives: His anomalous effects make his database entry full of these.Discovery and Incident Record: Lack of police reports of "a polite unarmed dollar bill not shooting lightning bolts" on a path away from the Hudson River led to demobilization of MTF Pi-1. note
- Enslaved Tongue: Subverted, as his anomalous effect can only affect human perception, not actual text, audio, or images.
- Fire, Ice, Lightning: The crab can shoot lightning bolts and once set his owners' house on fire. Also, if the room's temperature falls below 20°C, he will not refrain from melting the glass walls of his terrarium, but if the temperature exceeds 30°C, he will create an ice bridge leading out of the terrarium.
- From Stray to Pet: With disastrous results for the family involved.
- Meaningful Name: In Greek mythology, Dolos was the spirit of trickery, which this crab is very good at.
- Painting the Medium: SCP-2769 is a male African rainbow crab whose number appears as "SCP-61231" note , because he makes all statements about him appear to say the exact opposite of what they mean, but he has forgotten the correct value of 2^16 and thinks it is 64000 rather than 65536. (His number previously appeared as "SCP-69-All-The-Time".)
- Reverse Psychology: In spades throughout his entry, although his effect never alters anything he actually says or any concepts he is unfamiliar with; Word of God states that if a familiar concept is not easily negatable, the crab can choose his own value, hence "dollar bill" or "buck" replacing "crab".
- Sir Swears-a-Lot:Dr. B██████: Do you have a name?
SCP-61231: Yeah sure, Dolos. A fuckin' dollar bill with a name, that's me. Moron.
Dr. B██████: Would you describe yourself as Cardisoma armatum?
SCP-61231: Dafuck you just call me poindexter?
- Survival Mantra: The robotic attendants guarding him have to repeatedly tell him he's free, lest he dematerialize his terrarium and other barriers.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: His anomalous effects tend to cause this in addition to Confusing Multiple Negatives.SCP-61231 and Dr. B██████ do not silently maintain eye contact for 10 seconds.
- You Wake Up on a Beach: A local child found him unresponsive and injured on a Hoboken beach shortly after Hurricane Sandy. The crab was then adopted by the kid's family. Three days later, he regained mobility and his voice (he was described as extremely cantankerous), then escaped after igniting the family's home. Police reports about the crab led the Foundation to capture him with few casualties.
SCP-2776 - Mr. President
- American Robot: As if a combat robot dolled up to look like the Big Good of the American Revolution could be anything else. Taken Up to Eleven when his murder-mode is activated.
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: The "human" George Washington died of illness as a young man in General Braddock's army, long before the American Revolutionary War ever took place. This robot was made to replace him and what made history.
- Berserk Button: Watching a news report about the buy-out of an American telecoms company by a British media company drove him to activate his murder-bot mode.
- Godzilla Threshold: If the colonists were ever starting to lose against the British, the robot would trigger a combat mode that causes him to sprout a Death Ray from each arm and a flamethrower from his back and rampage towards London, killing everyone that gets in his way. Between this and his immense durability, it's possible he would have destroyed the British empire all on his own given the limitations of weaponry in the 1770's, but this mode was never needed because the revolutionaries won the war anyway.
- Meaningful Name: The designation SCP-2776 is as close as the author can get to 1776 when the article was posted, since there is already an SCP-1776.
- One-Man Army: It took two entire MTFs plus air support to bring him down.
- Schizo Tech: He is a fully functional robot built with mid-18th Century technology, but sports a number of more advanced features such as a small fusion reactor in his chest (which is his power source) and an unknown information processing unit in his skull made of graphene.
- Steampunk: Named dropped by one of the Foundation personnel who found him in their report.
- Tomato in the Mirror: It turns out that the "George" wasn't even aware he was a robot until the Foundation informed him. Heck, Martha was just a technician who pretended to be his wife while keeping him operational, never letting poor George know who, or what, he really was. George is more than a bit upset by this discovery.
SCP-2786 - The Archetype
- Ambiguous Gender: Doesn't have a defined gender and it seems to change from instance to instance.
- And I Must Scream: What its current containment is to it, effectively trapping it in a broken article that it can't escape.
- Break the Haughty: Despite attempts at resisting it eventually becomes despondent in the article's final re-calibration continually stating that it isn't real and doesn't exist.
- Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: Doesn't understand the concept of media such as movies or books, and sees the works it inserts itself in as reality and just places it visits. It is implied that making it learn the concept of fiction is what finally breaks SCP-2786's will.
- Despair Event Horizon: The realization of what fiction is, and that it's a fictional being to begin with, completely destroys the SCP's will and opinion of itself. The last iteration of its document, after this realization, is just constant repetition that it doesn't exist, and it's worthless because of it, written only to be tormented by spiteful writers; it doesn't understand what it did wrong to deserve this, and just wants to go home.
- The Hero: Believes itself to be this in whatever work it inserts itself in, even when it is the Foundation itself.
- Narcissist: Loves to proudly boast itself as The Hero and acts condescending to everyone else, seeing them as a means of making itself look good.
- Self-Insert Fic: What it essentially does to the pieces of fiction it invades, inserting itself as either The Hero or a Deus ex Machina that will solve the plot much faster than normal.
SCP-2791 - Fauste Bank plc
- Blood Magic: The SCP-2791 creatures use blood magic contracts as part of their procedures to set up their convoluted Deal with the Devil schemes.
- Chain of Deals: The beings behind SCP-2791 use a series of complicated agreements (including Blood Magic contracts) to allow their customers to avoid the consequences of a Deal with the Devil.
- Deal with the Devil: When someone wants to make a deal with the forces of Evil, they can use the services of SCP-2791 to avoid the nasty consequences of doing so.
- Intangible Price: The entities involved in SCP-2791 sometimes demand non-tangible things as part of their Deal with the Devil, such as the memories of the summoner's name or a period of torment after death.
- Partial Transformation: SCP-2791 is specifically not allowed to grant the power of partial transformation of the body as part of their Deal with the Devil.
- Super Strength: SCP-2791 is specifically not allowed to grant the power of increased physical strength as part of their Deal with the Devil.
- Telepathy: SCP-2791 is specifically not allowed to grant the power of telepathy as part of their Deal with the Devil.
SCP-2800 - Cactusman
- Brave Scot: He is of Scottish decent.
- Cactus Person: He's a man with cactus genes and has the abilities of a cactus, such as growing spines, photosynthesis, efficient water retention, resistance to above-average temperatures and aridity, and empathy with cacti.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: He's been psychologically diagnosed with hero syndrome by the Foundation. Part of his containment procedures is to let him help with menial tasks for the sake of his mental health.
- Companion Cube: His "sidekicks", Cactilad and Spikegirl, are normal cacti.
- Contrived Coincidence: He first encountered the SCP Foundation while tracking down a serial killer that was also a reality warper the Foundation was tracking.
- The Determinator: Despite being beaten up repeatedly by criminals, he was determined to keep up his work as a hero.
- Meaningful Rename: His real name is Daniel MacIntyre, but he only refers to himself by his hero alias.
- Nice Guy: He's friendly and cooperative with the Foundation, and went into superhero work just to help people in need.
- Plant Person: He has "cactus powers". It's as lame as it sounds.
- Spike Shooter: He can protrude 2-3cm long spikes from his body; while he can detach them at will, he can't actually use them as projectiles.
- Super Zeroes: He's not very good at being a superhero. Before he was contained by the Foundation, he went out trying to fight crime, but just ended up being beaten up by the criminals.
- Talking to Plants: One of his powers is talking to cacti. It's (slightly) less useless than it sounds given the existence of cactaceous SCPs and the fact that communicating with cacti improves their metabolism.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: There was one time where he actually managed to save a woman and her child from a mugger without getting hurt at all.
SCP-2812 - Echoes of Yesterday
- Make Me Wanna Shout: SCP-2812-2 are humanoid entities that operate in the area of effect around the SCP-2812-1 record player. They have a speaker cone inside their mouths that broadcasts the same music played by SCP-2812-1, but it has a stronger effect, causing cerebral hemorrhaging in living creatures.
- Teleportation: The SCP-2812-2 humanoid entities that patrol the area around SCP-2812-1 can teleport from place to place inside the area at will.
SCP-2814 - Heretic of the Torch
- Human Sacrifice: If the person wearing the SCP-2814 mask performs enough human sacrifices, the souls of the person and all of the people they've killed will turn into a storm of fire in the shape of a column.
- Mystical 108: The Chinese occultist group "Children of the Torch" performed 108 Human Sacrifices in an attempt to create a firestorm, the form of their deity the Radiant Father.
- Playing with Fire: When a human being wears the SCP-2814 mask they can (a) manipulate fire as if it were a liquid or solid, (b) modify the temperature of fire under their control, (c) touch or "hold" their fire without being harmed, and (d) take no damage from heat or flame up to 5000 °C.
SCP-2835 - Constructive Criticism
- Berserk Button: Paddy gets furiously angry if the audience doesn't like his cartoon.
- Can't Take Criticism: Paddy absolutely refuses to hear any critique of his episodes that is even slightly negative, even if it would help him improve his show.
- Despair Event Horizon: Implied to have crossed it to suicidal levels a while ago. When an episode of Paddy's show was run through SCP-3922 (a video player that allows the high-tech organization known as the Three Moons Initiative to access fictional visual media), the Three Moons soldiers only tried to console a despondent Paddy. Paddy tried blowing off his own head with a gun, only to get the classic cartoon dizzy symbols around his head. Paddy cried that he doesn't have the ability to "people die, not just cartoon die".
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: The SCP takes the form of an episode of Sam Singer's Paddy the Pelican, but Paddy will frequently stop the cartoon and talk to the audience, getting angry if they express any form of criticism.
- Madness Mantra: Paddy's temper tantrums involve heavy use of the phrase "Reap what you sow!"
- Shout-Out: This SCP features a fictional lost episode of The Adventures of Paddy the Pelican, and in general seems to be a nod to "lost episode" Creepypastas.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Paddy tends to curse viciously if the audience sets him off.
- The Villain Knows Where You Live: Testing on SCP-2835 was suspended after Paddy demonstrated that he knew where the test subject's family lives and threatened their lives.We can't take any more chances. Even if he's bluffing, it's specific bluffing, and the implications are, at best, troubling. - Dr. Naismith
SCP-2845 - THE DEERSee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2852 - Cousin JohnnySee Characters.SCP Foundation SC Ps.
SCP-2863 - がしゃどくろ
- Dem Bones: Massive, 100-feet tall skeletons that appear during times of mass suffering and death, such as the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Allied firebombings of Japan and the 2011 Japanese earthquake.
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-2863 are giant skeletons that bite off people's heads and drink their blood. Conventional weaponry (such as firearms) has no effect on them.
- Turn Undead: Shinto religious rituals can banish SCP-2863 instances but not destroy them.
- Weakened by the Light: If SCP-2863 instances are exposed to any light at all, they lose their corporeal form and are banished until darkness falls again.
- Youkai: SCP-2863 is based on the gashadokuro, a giant skeleton monster from Japanese mythology.
SCP-2864 - Di Molte Voci
- Bilingual Bonus: "Di Molte Voci" is Italian for "Of Many Voices".- Billy Herrington
- Painting the Medium: The object replaces the description with quotes from discussions that went into it. It also randomizes some data assigned to it, so the Foundation calls it Di Molte Voci (Italian for "out of many voices") instead of a numeral designation.- Troper
SCP-2869 - Fuckworms
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: SCP-2869 reproduces by secreting SCP-2869-S, a mucus containing parasitic sperm. If SCP-2869-S touches another living creature, it will enter that creature's body and grow into new versions of SCP-2869 that are a combination of the forms of SCP-2869 and the host body.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: SCP-2869 are approximately 3.5 meters long. Their lower half is a long muscular tail like that of a caterpillar, with four claw-like legs and two long gripping limbs in front. The upper half is a humanoid torso (with arms and head) at one end of the tail.
- Super Spit: One of SCP-2869's offspring (created by infecting a purple shore crab) is capable of spitting a stream of infectious SCP-2869-S up to 10 meters away.
SCP-2872 - A Fast Horse
- Faster-Than-Light Travel: After it broke out of SCP Foundation containment it traveled into space and accelerated to faster than the speed of light. It started by heading for the constellation Equuleus, but has since begun to turn.
- The Juggernaut: While running, SCP-2872 can break through any barrier and is unharmed by any impact.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The Foundation had SCP-2872 contained perfectly well by giving it adequate living space and letting it win the Kentucky Derby once every five years, but then some idiot went and locked it up in a cell claiming that the Foundation was just "appeasing" SCP-2872, and now they have an imminent equine XK-Class scenario on their hands. Moral of the story: if containment procedures are keeping a potentially dangerous anomaly relatively harmless, do not change them for no good reason.
- Super Speed: If it didn't win the Kentucky Derby at least once every five years, it would accelerate to a speed of 320 meters per second and race around the countryside. However, after the Foundation locked it up and didn't let it move around, it burst out of containment and went into outer space using Faster-Than-Light Travel.
SCP-2875 - The Town That Got Fucked By Bears
- Asteroids Monster: If a bear is killed by shooting or an incendiary device, two more will appear next to its corpse.
- Bears Are Bad News: The SCP is a phenomenon occurring in ███████, Wisconsin that causes 50 to 100 bears to appear in the town every three days.
- Out of the Frying Pan: From the voice messages left by the mayor, they brought in some sort of anomalous exterminator to deal with a coyote problem using bears. It worked like a charm... but now the town has a bear problem. An anomalous bear problem.
- Serious Business: Best exemplified in this statement:MTF Lead Note: I know plenty of you think that this is some kind of joke, but a town of constantly appearing bears is serious. Can you imagine what would happen to the local ecosystem if we let this thing go? It was like a goddamn bear arena when we first rolled in, and that was only after a few days.
- Too Dumb to Live: The mayor of the town, Tom Miller, was killed by a bear while leaving his phone number for the exterminator as the bear was attacking.
SCP-2901 - Mothman
- Animalistic Abomination: More in behavior than appearance though—it's an otherworldly monster that acts like a precognitive buzzard.
- Disaster Scavengers: A literal example, scavenging on the remains left behind in disasters.
- Doing In the Wizard: Weird example because it still has supernatural abilities, but it's depicted as a territorial scavenger that waits out disasters so that it can eat the remains of human fatalities. At least, that's what the Foundation wants people to think.
- Eldritch Abomination: The report at the end implies that it's one of these—its true appearance is dependent on what the public views it as, something even the Foundation wasn't completely aware of at first. Because this could potentially lead to disaster if the creature is perceived as anything particularly dangerous, the Foundation is hard at work trying to make its public image something more docile.
- Flight: SCP-2901 can freely move through the space-time continuum, giving them the abilities of flight and teleportation.
- Giant Flyer: Just like the myth that inspired them. Except they weren't always like this.
- The Mothman: As its name suggests, it's a take on the classic cryptid.
- Non-Malicious Monster: It's a carnivorous scavenger that feeds on corpses left behind after disasters. Or is it?
- Our Cryptids Are More Mysterious: It's the Mothman!
- Reality Warper: They have extradimensional abilities that makes containing them nigh-impossible.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: SCP-2901's standard manifestation is a humanoid with dark-colored wings and large red eyes. They are known to attack human beings, especially when the humans flee them, and their touch causes the victim's skin to be ripped off. They also appear near the sites of disasters and eat the bodies of the victims.
- Seers: They can predict impending disasters with incredible ease. It's believed that they do this to scavenge the remains left behind, but it turns out they only became that way because the Foundation started to believe that was the case.
- Teleportation: SCP-2901 can freely move through the space-time continuum, giving them the abilities of flight and teleportation.
SCP-2922 - Notes From the Under
- Accidental Discovery: An SCP that allows people to make telepathic phone calls unexpectedly reveals an entire afterlife to the Foundation.
- Afterlife Antechamber: Corbenic is said to be a hub leading to every possible afterlife, though it's entirely possible to never move on, and spend the rest of eternity in Corbenic itself.
- Alien Sky: Corbenic has three moons
- Dead Person Conversation: SCP-2922 is a memetic procedure that lets people make phone calls with their minds. The unanticipated side effect is that these people can still make phone calls after their own death, allowing them to speak to the living.
- External Retcon: In an older version of the article, one of Janet Spiegel's messages had an oblique reference to the horrific afterlife from SCP-2718, implying that it was a punishment for failing some sort of test in Corbenic—rather than an inevitability, as the 2718 article had implied. That bit eventually got removed.
- Giant Spider: SCP-PC-005, "The Impenetrable", is a Reality Warper that lives in the afterlife known as Corbenic. It resembles a gigantic spider.
- Healing Factor: In the afterlife that the Foundation calls Corbenic, humans have physical bodies but are incapable of dying. People recover from all physical injuries in minutes or hours.
- I Lied: Janet Spiegel tells the Foundation at one point that The Grim Reaper appeared in Corbenic, driving a cart to take everyone to the Elysian Fields. In her next phone message, she admits that was a lie, just meant to test the Foundation's reaction.
- Reality Warper: SCP-PC-005 "The Impenetrable" is an extremely powerful reality-bending Giant Spider entity that lives in the afterlife known to the Foundation as Corbenic. It is allied to the Foundation scientist who ended up there after dying while under the influence of SCP-2922.
- Shoot the Dog: Refusing to let the dead researcher talk to her husband is standard Foundation procedure. When she manages to contact him anyway, he is shot. But the kicker is telling the "explorers" that they can be returned to their bodies, when that is impossible; travelling to Corbenic requires you to die.
- Taken for Granite:
- The 2-3 kilometer high primates known as Striders can generate a sound that petrifies human flesh.
- Anyone speaking negatively about SCP-PC-007 "The Witch-Queen of Bogal Mountain" while in the Corbenic afterlife will have their flesh turn to stone.
- Telepathy: SCP-2922 is a memetic procedure that can be implanted in a human being's mind. It allows them to telepathically call a specific phone number.
- Teleportation: The kilometer-high primates called Striders can make a noise that teleports other creatures to an unknown area.
- To Serve Man: SCP-PC-007, "The Witch-Queen of Bogal Mountain", has Giant Striders collect human beings and bring them to her so she can eat them. Since everyone has regeneration abilities this is not fatal, but spending months going through her digestive tract does serious psychological damage.
SCP-2927 - Soundspots
- Brown Note: SCP-2927 is two tones generated at 75 dB at frequencies of 16.8 kHz and 27 Hz. Anyone who listens to them suffers from dread and unease, which get stronger the closer the person gets to the source of the sound. Anyone who approaches within two meters will permanently experience night terrors, insomnia and a strong fear of prolonged noises.
- Supernatural Fear Inducer: Anyone who listens to the SCP-2927 sounds suffers from dread and unease, which becomes stronger the closer the person gets to the source of the sound. Anyone who approaches within two meters will permanently experience night terrors, insomnia and a strong fear of prolonged noises.
SCCP-2930 - Cross City City City City Hall
- Painting the Medium: Any digital documents that contains contains quotes or transcripts from the meetings at the city city hall in Cross City City, Florida causes causes most words starting with "C C" to be used twice. Only certain certain words are exempt from the effects, as long as they correlate correlate to Christian or Catholic themes. (Ex. The noun "cross" remains the same, but the verbs "crossed crossed" or "crossing crossing" are changed changed.)
- Real-Place Background: There is an actual Cross City City of Dixie County County, Florida.
SCP-2935 - O, Death
- Ambiguous Situation: How it kills is unknown, but some things can be inferred. The world you visit when walking through is presumably the last reality it wiped out. It kills everything living either on Earth or throughout the universe. Any SCP's that can be considered alive also dies and loses its anomalous properties to boot. Upon returning to your reality, everything but you dies just before you make it all the way through. You come back to a completely sterilized planet. What prevents, say bacteria, floating through and coming back to wipe out the planet is unknown. It appears something has to intentionally make the journey. The alternate Agent Keller just describes the trigger that walks through and comes back as "Death". He explains that, perhaps, something is in the cave that "follows you out". Drones returning through the cave don't trigger the mass death. This is Nothing Is Scarier at its finest.
- Apocalypse How: It leads to a duplicate Earth where Class 6 is in full effect - absolutely EVERYTHING is dead on the other side of the portal.
- Awful Truth: The apocalypse was caused by a Foundation member—the alternate version of a member of the MTF, no less—going through the portal from the other end. That member also found a dead world that didn't quite match his own, but when he returned he found his own world completely dead as well. He locked himself in containment and killed himself, and his was the only corpse to decompose.
- Driven to Suicide: Alternate Keller did this when he came back to discover the Awful Truth above. It's implied that Keller from our side realized this (or saw his alternate's last transmission) and "accidentally" tripped the nuke to keep anyone from bringing the apocalypse down on the world they left as well.
- Everybody's Dead, Dave: As mentioned before, absolutely everything is dead on 2935's duplicate Earth. And that does mean absolutely everything - one log notes that corpses are eerily undamaged because there's no bacteria that can cause decay/rotting. Trying to go back won't help you, because that's what caused everybody to be dead in the first place.
- Heroic Sacrifice: After learning from the alternate Agent Keller that returning home would continue the cycle of 2935, MTF Epsilon-13 stays behind and collapses the cave on their end, ordering the Foundation to seal it off completely.
- Tomato in the Mirror: The only corpse to have decomposed is that of Agent Keller's counterpart. This is because he went through the portal from their side and returned.Maybe I am Death.
SCP-2950 - Just a Chair
- Ambiguous Situation: It works like SCP-2901 in that it transforms into what the majority of people believe it is. In fact, from the description, it could actually be another instance of SCP-2901.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: SCP-2950 takes the form of whatever most people believe it to be. Hence why they've convinced everyone up to most of the O5's that it's just a chair.
- Cool Chair: It's a metal folding chair that's far more comfortable than it seems. The longer someone sits in it, the less they want to move out of it. Otherwise, it's nothing dangerous. As long as you believe it is.
- Move Along, Nothing to See Here: It's just a chair that's anomalously comfortable, with no real applications aside from being sat upon nor research value, and it's most certainly not to be experimented on because there's nothing worth testing for. And it definitely isn't a Keter-class metamorphic entity that's defined by what people think it is, and most certainly isn't contained by making it as boring and mundane as an anomaly can be.
- Secret-Keeper: Only one O5-6 and one member of the Serpent's Hand can know what is at any one time. The thing could safely be ignored and all memories wiped of it to make it harmless, but some unknown Jerkass or Big Bad wrote a book about it to cause it to become an incredibly dangerous monster. The books' origins are unknown but recent. Therefore, the O5-6 who knows of it must try to find out the books' origins, whether it be man-made or caused by the SCP or another SCP. The writer of the message (who has been mind wiped after having written the message) notes that the task will be almost impossible and that he or she will have no help from anyone in regards to the matter.
SCP-2951 - 10,000 Years
- Abandoned Mine: SCP-2951 is a mine that was abandoned due to its anomalous nature causing quite a few people to disappear.
- Action Bomb: The last of the Voice Changelings in the exploration log violently combusts, destroying the MTF's recording equipment, but leaving the members themselves mostly unharmed.
- Dwindling Party: Inverted. Mobile Task Force Trotter-5 is a four-man team. Pay attention to the unit designations in the exploration log.
- Eldritch Location: A mineshaft that spatially warps, trapping those that try to explore it, has a temporal effect that makes time feel like it drags on forever, and warps individuals into monstrous entities with nothing remaining of their former selves aside from their clothing and voice mimicry.
- Voice Changeling: The entities in the mine have the appearance of people who have entered the mine, but with the wrong voices. That said, the voices themselves are flawless enough to fool the exploration team.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: What to the team was a five hour mission was to the surface only about twenty minutes.
SCP-2952 - Conveyance Of Regional Gwerin Internationally
- Big Friendly Dog: Despite being over 30,000 meters long, the Corgi is still just as friendly as any normal dog of its breed. The Foundation staff tending to it are even encouraged to play with it, though its ability to move is limited.
- The Fair Folk: SCP-2952-2, the commuters, are clearly Welsh fairies of one sort or another.
- Fun with Acronyms: Conveyance Of Regional Gwerin Internationally, or C.O.R.G.I.
- Healing Factor: Immediately, fully recovers from any injury inflicted on it. It's not immune to all medical issues, though - the Foundation had to close one of its stops in order to remove some kidney stones.
- Invisible to Normals: Invoked, in a way. Once the Foundation proved their worth, the Corgi in question immediately became imperceptible to the naked eye by anyone not a member of the Foundation, which helped containment immensely.
- Organic Technology: It's essentially an insanely long Welsh Corgi that doubles as a gigantic subway line.
- The Dog Bites Back: SCP-2952-2 immediately started attacking the researchers involved in blocking the system's exits, even snatching away the site director and practically crucifying the researcher in charge. Thankfully, the Foundation got the hint and all problems ceased once they started to cooperate.
- Subways Suck: Downplayed, but it appears even magical fairy metros have racist graffiti and really bad musicians.
SCP-2954 - Looping Kaiju Killing
- Kaiju: Every seven days, an example of SCP-2954-2 appears and attacks. SCP-2954-2 are bipedal and 50-60 meters tall. They have a mixture of traits from fish, amphibians and reptiles, including spiny fins on their back and forearms.
- Lightning Gun: SCP-2954-1 look like radio telescopes on pedestals. They can fire an electrical arc similar to a lightning bolt.
- Super Spit: SCP-2954-2 are Kaiju (think Godzilla) that can spit out corrosive fluid.
- Shout-Out: Tsuburaya Events is obviously named after Eiji Tsuburaya.
SCP-2966 - InfiniTP
- Energy Absorption: SCP-2966 has to be hooked up to heat exchanger of a nuclear reactor to replenish itself; without a heat source, it sucks out all the ambient heat energy in a region measuring in kilometers and brings the temperature down to absolute zero. It also has to be regularly subtracted from, otherwise it will disintegrate into energy after disuse.
- Equivalent Exchange: Unlike most of the anomalous items contained by the Foundation, SCP-2966 actually obeys the laws of thermodynamics, hence the need to feed it with heat energy.
- Lethal Harmless Powers: Its main purpose is to be an endless supply of toilet paper. Its Keter classification comes from how it creates this endless supply, with a side of Surprisingly Realistic Outcome.
- Paranormal Mundane Item: SCP-2966 is a literal infinite roll of toilet paper.
- The Tokyo Fireball: It will instantly convert its entire mass to energy if pieces of it are not removed for more than a set number of days, detonating in an explosion comparable to a hydrogen bomb.
SCP-2970 - Holy Misplacement
- Immune to Bullets: SCP-2970 is a human being who was given magical artificial implants to improve his capabilities. When he broke containment and escaped from site 30, bullets fired at him were deflected before hitting him.
- When the Clock Strikes Twelve: SCP-2970 broke out of containment at Site 30 at midnight and escaped, using an innate ability of being Immune to Bullets to avoid being stopped by the guards.
SCP-2975 - Another Sun
- Apocalypse Cult: The Order of the White Sun is a cult that worships an Eldritch Abomination called the White Sun. They try to use a structure called the Memory House to bring the White Sun to Earth and cause an XK-Class End of the World Scenario.
- Eldritch Abomination: The White Sun is an extremely powerful and incomprehensible being that is worshiped by the Apocalypse Cult The Order of the White Sun. The Order is trying to bring about the end of the world by summoning the White Sun to Earth.
- Immune to Bullets: Another Sun is a Tale associated with SCP-2975. After Mobile Task Force Sigma-3 enters a crevasse and is transported to another world, they see gigantic wolf-like beings as tall as a skyscraper. When they fire on one such being, it has no effect at all.
- Torches and Pitchforks: Another Sun is a Tale associated with SCP-2975. As Mobile Task Force Sigma-3 moves through a town, it is attacked by cultists literally armed with torches and pitchforks. MTF Sigma-3 manages to avoid the cultists, who eventually fell asleep.
SCP-2976 - Hall of the Last King
- Alien Geometries: When people infected with the SCP-2976 meme advance to Stage 4 they start to create the Hall of the Last King. The structure has non-Euclidean dimensions and architecture, with time and space being warped inside it.
- Eldritch Abomination: When the victims of SCP-2976 reach Stage 5 they summon the Last King inside the Hall. The Last King appears as a humanoid figure silhouetted by a bright light. When he arrives everything in the nearby area (both organic and inorganic) is destroyed or removed, except for the walls.
SCP-2978 - Motherburg
- Air-Vent Passageway: The SCP-2978-B entities being held in Site 17 change a wireless modem into a flying vehicle and start to explore. Three minutes later the vehicle enters a ventilation duct and visual contact with the vehicle is lost.
- Humans Are Cthulhu: They are so small that they can no more perceive us than we can them without a microscope. They also worship their unknown human creator, which they often mistake Foundation scientists for. Also, mere headlice is to them the equivalent of a rampaging monster.
- Lilliputians: Even smaller than usual- requiring a microscope and a high speed camera to properly perceive.
- Silicon-Based Life: SCP-2978-B are a race of tiny silicon-based humanoids. They live in the silicon chips of computer motherboards and are expert at using and modifying computers.
SCP-2979 - Your Secondary School Physics Teacher, Mr. <REDACTED>
- Bad Powers, Good People: Why he's Safe; he's gained control over the infohazard that is his name to control the Fake Memories produced by it, which he uses to warn the Foundation whenever it affects someone.
- Brown Note: His name has apparently been overwritten by a word in an alien language that immediately causes people to recognize him as, well, their high school science teacher and manufactures Fake Memories of him that eventually turn them into Cloud Cuckoo Landers if the Foundation doesn't erase his name in a month.
- Cool Teacher: The memories portray him as such, but nobody's sure if he ever actually was one, or whether it's just because the sole remaining instance of his infected name is from a high school.
- Only Sane Man: Humorously, Mr. <REDACTED> is immune to the Brown Note and from his personal edits to the memories it makes he gets quite exasperated with the behavior of those who aren't.
- Retired Badass: He may or may not be a Navy veteran, and he's certainly badass enough to neuter his own infohazard.
- Was Once a Man: Mr. <REDACTED> himself apparently now exists as a disembodied mind within the Fake Memories made by his name. He himself isn't sure if he exists or not.
SCP- 2989 - Of Bookworms, Bamboo, and Beating Hearts.
- Interspecies Romance: They are a Japanese Emperor caterpillar and an Orange Spicebush Swallowtail caterpillar, respectively. (One wonders how they met in the first place.) The individual that results from their union has no recognizable breed.
- Nearly Normal Animal: They're just caterpillars. Caterpillars that communicate through grammatically correct poetry and can teleport through time and space, but still caterpillars with no interest in anything outside their species.
- Romantic Fusion: After finally reuniting, 2989-A and 2989-B form into a chrysalis, from which emerges one butterfly. It writes "Whole", before disappearing for good.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: Every jump they make is an attempt to find the other, but somehow their coordinates are always off. Until they're not.Why are so many feelings needed, when one overwhelms the universe?
SCP-2996 - The Angry Spirit
- Ambiguous Situation: SCP-2996 had underwent a few edits that changed the ending, but the latest edit merged the original and the new ending together into a special situation - the file was edited in-universe after a breach of security. Either of the earlier versions of the article could be "the true version". The problem is, not even the Foundation knows which one it is. And both might be fake.
- Downer Ending: The first version of the article was much darker. After all those counseling sessions to get Emily to let go of James, turns out that James did indeed kill Emily, and somehow infiltrated the Foundation, impersonated a doctor, and performed a Physical Evaluation on ghost Emily (whose details we don't get to see, but at least include vivisection), before escaping and getting listed on a Foundation manhunt.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: The second version of the article was much lighter: After months of psychiatric counseling, ghost Emily accepts that her death was a suicide, not a murder. She lets go of her hatred towards James and starts over, becoming a normal girl again and was adopted by the Foundation.
SCP-2998 - Anomalous Transmission, 2485 MHz
- After the End: Iteration 6 has two remnants of the Foundation in this.
- All There in the Manual: Some background information for the SCP is explained by the author in the forum. For example, Adidal isn't a name. It's a title that best translates to "God-Emperor". Ruhar (which is a name) is a former military officer who attempted a coup. It failed, he was captured, but then escaped.
- And I Must Scream: The suffering alien in the transmission, a criminal named Ruhar being punished by an all-powerful ruler Adidal for killing a member of the latter's family, doomed to be kept alive and suffer on public broadcast until the universe grows dark.
- Big Blackout: The Foundation wipes out global communication to stop the alien signal from spreading. Their response is coming down to do the search manually.
- Church Militant: After Earth was taken over by Adidal's forces, the Foundation became a hyper-religious organization known as the True Foundation that sees They-That-Watched-Over (Adidal's forces) as gods.
- Distress Call: The transmission appears to be this, given the video feed in it shows a suffering humanoid alien. It evolves into a Harbinger of Impending Doom as well.
- The End of the World as We Know It: The Alien Invasion ends destroying civilization, including a theocracy that wound up implemented in America.
- Easter Egg: The seemingly blank iteration 8 has a hidden Magnolia quote about how History Repeats.
- Evil Versus Evil: The convict Ruhar who possesses humans with the signal to escape and fight back against Adidal, versus the all-powerful ruler Adidal, who uses the same tactics to try to capture Ruhar on Earth. The humans are used as the pawns in their fight.
- Extranormal Prison: Ruhar was stuck in one. When he seemed to escape, his captors turn Earth into one.For the record, the part of the SCP that's supposed to be horrifying isn't that the ██████ took over the Earth and destroyed the human race entirely, it's that they did so not as an end or for any real reason, but because it was the most straightforward way to contain Ruhar. The entire planet was swept away as collateral damage to the exact sort of operation that the Foundation conducts constantly.
- Forbidden Chekhov's Gun: The events are undone by combining the SCP that cannot be known and the SCP that MUST not be known, which have only been described in relation to each other as, "Can't fit round pegs in square holes."
- From Bad to Worse: A few possessed test subjects -> A lot of possessed humans —> Big Blackout attempting to contain the aliens —> The aliens invade.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: The Foundation finds their entire species being scrubbed away by invaders who are willing to do anything to contain something. Sound familiar?
- Human Resources: It's implied that the "Recycling Duty" practiced by theocratic "True Foundation" in the After the End timeline involves this. Including cannibalism.
- Make an Example of Them: The purpose of the broadcast is to make its subject an example to the entire universe of why you do not screw with Adidal.
- Mind Virus: Seeing the transmission ends up implementing ones about the Adidal ("All glory Adidal. All power. All fall before Adidal. All light bends. All sound spreads. All glory.") and Ruhar ("The accursed was known as Ruhar before its crime. It knows no sound but screams.") in test subjects.
- Painting the Medium: The Apocalyptic Log was originally different page revisions. Cumbersome navigation (MediaWiki has a "Last\next revision" header; with Wikidot, is not as easy) had them split into pages separated by "Next iteration —->".
- Psychic Nosebleed: An effect of the Mind Virus.
- Reset Button: Done by combining SCPs 055 and 579 - i.e. the two that are so vague they are known as [UNKNOWN] and [DATA EXPUNGED]. That's what you get fitting "square peg" into "round hole".
- Sealed Evil in a Can: The figure in the transmission is an alien convict named Ruhar, who apparently formed the transmission in an attempt to escape. We don't know what he did, but given how he's perfectly A-OK with possessing thousands of humans just to escape, and the god-king Adidal apparently decided destroying human civilization was an acceptable loss to contain him, he probably isn't a spectacularly nice person.
- Starfish Aliens: The "aliens" are in fact living ideas - though they also have a somewhat traditional visible humanoid form, entirely black with a hardened, nonsegmented carapace.
- You Kill It, You Bought It: Invading Earth results in the aliens being forced to deal with the SCPs they caused to break free. The surviving agents find this hilarious.
