15 Dangerous S.C.P.’s

Creepy Reads

⚠️: This article may contain creepy images and disturbing content. Is the government hiding something? Is there some organization that’s responsible for covering things up? Maybe. The S.C.P. Foundation (Secure. Contain. Protect.) is an organization consisting of scientists, researchers and special forces that contain and study objects, locations, creatures, and entities that do not obey natural law. The foundation classifies their subjects into three classes, Safe, Euclid, and Keter. 

  • Safe: means they are easy to contain and require little to no observation. Does not mean they will not pose a threat when activated or provoked. 
  • Euclid: means they are a little more difficult to contain and may pose a threat. Any autonomous or sentient entities would be classified as Euclid due to their unpredictability and their ability to think or function independently. 
  • Keter: means they are more difficult to contain due to the lack of knowledge or lack of technology required to contain it. Not all S.C.P.’s that are classified as Keter are dangerous but difficult to contain, but ones that are could bring about an end of the world scenario. 

I like reading creepypastas and especially about the S.C.P. Foundation. There are some pretty creepy and dangerous S.C.P.’s that could wipe out all life as we know it but these are just stories, right? Here are 15 Dangerous S.C.P.’s: 

15: SCP-1471

Object Class: Euclid. 

SCP-1471 is a mobile app called MalO ver1.0.0. It’s a free app and will automatically start downloading itself to your device. Once downloaded, it has no icon which will make it difficult for you to delete from your device. You then start to receive messages every 3-6 hours of a figure known as SCP-1471-A in locations you have been to. SCP-1471-A is described as a humanoid creature with wolf-like features including a skull for a face and blank white eyes. Over time, the app sends pictures with SCP-1471-A in places you have been to recently and you actually start seeing SCP-1471-A in person, speaking in a language you do not understand. Now how can this SCP be dangerous? Consider that a majority of the people on this planet have some kind of mobile device and are on it all the time. Plus being stalked by this werewolf creature that speaks in a indecipherable language is a lot to push someone over the edge, don’t you think? 

14: SCP-035 (The Comedy/Tragedy Mask)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-035 has the appearance of a porcelain Comedy Mask which changes to Tragedy on occasions. A dark corrosive substance is said to leak from the eyes and mouth. Anything (organic/inorganic) that comes in contact with this substance starts to dissolve over time, varies on the material of said object. Where it comes from is unknown and only is seen from the front of the mask and not the back of it. Any subject that comes within a 5-6 foot radius of the mask will be compelled to put the mask on. Whoever puts the mask on will become brain dead and then SCP-035 takes control of the host and the body of the host will begin to decompose. This SCP is highly intelligent and very manipulative.

13: SCP-017 (The Shadow Person)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-017 is described as being 2 feet in height and having a human shape similar to a small child. No discernible features are visible and it is unknown if there is a figure under this shroud. How it reacts to other shadows when they are cast on it or around it is immediate and swift. It will cover said shadow and revert to its normal size and leave no trace of the object behind.

12: SCP-173 (The Sculpture)

Object Class: Euclid. 

For those of you who are Whovians (Doctor Who fans) this one’s for you. Also called “The Sculpture” or “The Art Piece,” this creature is made of concrete and rebar with spray paint. It stays motionless most of the time but it is very hostile. It can’t move on direct sight but once eye contact is broken, it will keep moving closer and closer. When it gets close enough to you it will do one of two things. It will either strangle you to death or break your neck at the base of your skull. It is said that researchers have heard scraping noises coming from inside SCP-173’s containment cell when no one is present, but this is considered normal. This is one of the most popular SCP’s out there and probably one of the scariest. Whatever you do, don’t blink. 

11: SCP-106 (The Old Man)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-106 has the appearance of an old man with its body looking like it’s rotting or decomposing. It remains motionless for long periods of time while waiting for its next victim. It’s capable of climbing on surfaces and can suspend itself upside down. When attacking its prey, it disables its victim by damaging vital organs, muscles, or tendons. When disabled, SCP-106 will drag it into its pocket dimension. It usually preys on human victims between the age 10-25. It is observed that any solid matter that comes in contact with SCP-106 will start to corrode or rot. It is unknown if this pocket dimension is its home world or simply a lair for the creature. 

10: SCP-096 (The Shy Guy)

Object Class: Euclid. 

I’m just going to show you a blank face. I will explain why. Also known as “The Shy Guy,” this SCP is a humanoid creature that measures 2.38 meters in height. The creature is very scrawny and its skin has little to no pigment with no body hair. It’s capable of opening its jaws four times that of a normal human, has facial features similar to a normal human except for the eyes, which have no pigment at all. It’s capable of basic brain function. It’s very docile most of the time but is very insecure about itself, hence the name “Shy Guy.” If anyone looks at it, whether it be in person, through images, videos, etc., SCP-106 will go ballistic and kill anyone who looks at it. Once you look at it, there’s no escape and it will stop at nothing until you’re dead. 

9: SCP-049 (The Plague Doctor)

Object Class: Euclid. 

SCP-049 is a humanoid entity that is 1.9 meters in height and has a the appearance of a 15th-16th century plague doctor. It wears a ceramic mask and leather robes which are actually a part of his body. It does show in x-rays that he does have a skeletal structure underneath it all. SCP-049 is very intelligent and is capable of speaking in several languages but mostly prefers English or French. He has been very cooperative with members of the foundation but is hostile when he senses something he calls “The Pestilence,” but it is unknown what he means. Some say it’s the Bubonic Plague but that may not be the case. Anyone who comes into skin contact with SCP-049 will die. He kills anyone he believes is infected and then will get out his bag full of scalpels, sewing needles, threads and vials of unknown substances. He performs autopsies on the “infected,” cutting them open, injecting them with unknown substances, and sews them back together. After this 20 minute procedure, the corpse will reanimate leaving basic motor skills and response mechanisms intact. These are known as SCP-049-2. While his operations aren’t always successful, he often claims that they have been “cured.” They will attack anyone who comes in contact with them or if directed by SCP-049 himself. 

8: SCP-701 (The Hanged King’s Tragedy)

Object Class: Euclid. 

SCP-701 or “The Hanged King’s Tragedy,” is a five part play about a revenge tragedy. It’s said that the script for the play was published in 1640 but the author of the script is unknown and has been reprinted several times. Sometimes they would change the title. A couple weeks before opening night during dress rehearsals, the performers act out scenes that aren’t part of the script but no one is aware of this and think it is part of the play. During opening night of the play, at the ending of Scene l, a mysterious figure appears known as SCP-701-1 in the background and members of the audience notice this but think it’s part of the play. It oftentimes disappears during Scene l as well. During Scene V, SCP-701-1 appears on stage and during this time, the actors will begin to murder each other or take their own lives and this happens among the audience as well. Those who survive will walk out in a daze and commit random acts of violence. Anyone who is lucky enough to last for 24 hours will turn back to normal but traumatized by the recent events.

7: SCP-1048 (Builder Bear)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-1048 has the appearance of a stuffed Teddy Bear but don’t let his cute and cuddliness fool you. It’s capable of moving and thinking on its own and can’t talk but speaks through simple gestures. It responds to yes or no questions and shows signs of affection through hugs, dances, jumping, and drawing pictures. People around this SCP respond positively, even those suffering from mental health issues. It’s discovered that it can make duplicates of itself with materials available to it, whether it’s organic or inorganic, and these duplicates are extremely hostile to humans. It shows signs of affection in order to trick people into a false sense of security, so it can gather materials. They didn’t realize it was dangerous until the ear incident which I’m about to explain. 

One of SCP-1048’s first duplicates was constructed out of human ears that were taken from members of the foundation. It has the ability of emitting an unbearable shriek which causes anyone within 5 meters to grow ear like welts leading to death. Another looks exactly like the original but with a few differences. SCP-1048 performed an abortion on a staff member and used the fetus to create a duplicate. This duplicate has extra limbs such as an arm which resembles an infant’s. The third one was created out of metal scraps and found running through the facility killing people by jumping through them. Now imagine an army of these little dudes running around.

6: SCP-610 (The Flesh That Hates)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-610 is a contagious infection that was first discovered in Russia after some farmers went missing. The local police were sent in search of the missing farmers. They went missing, so they send the regional police and they went missing as well, following a government agent. A military group was sent to investigate but immediately returned as soon as they found signs of the infection and they notified the foundation. Once a person comes into skin contact with the disease, they experience symptoms of a skin disease like rashes, itching, and sensitivity. Scars appear within 3 hours of infection and spread all over the victim’s body. Rate of infection varies on temperature. In low temperatures, it progresses slowly and in high temperatures it progresses rapidly, which are both very painful. Once the scar tissue spreads all over the body, they die and after three minutes, they reanimate. Human features of the infected become warped and grow mutations such as extended/extra limbs or tentacles. Some will seek out to infect other living things while others will root themselves into the ground and grow out to spread the infection.

5: SCP-682 (Hard-To-Destroy-Reptile)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-682 is a reptilian creature of unknown origin. It seems to be very intelligent as observed when having a conversation with SCP-079. While being interviewed, SCP-682 expresses having a hatred for all life. It’s equipped with high strength, speed, and reflexes but these abilities vary based on its physical form. Body changes based on what it eats, growing or decreasing in size. It has extreme regeneration and can even function with 87% of its body decomposed or destroyed.

4: SCP-2317 (Eater Of Worlds)

Object Class: ? 

If this one ever got out, we’d all be screwed. Well, if any of these things got out, we’d all be screwed. SCP-2317 is a large wooden door that leads into an alternate reality. In this alternate reality, there is a demonic entity that swallows planets whole. It’s locked by seven bones of its own species but six have been broken. One bone stands in between SCP-2317 and the destruction of our planet.

3: SCP-2700 (Teleforce)

Object Class: Safe. 

This one is probably one of the most deadliest items in the SCP Foundation and you’ll soon find out why. SCP-2700 is a mechanical device that is a vessel of directed energy and three components including the interface, the accelerator, and the core. It was created by the one and only Nikola Tesla. SCP-2700 is a weapon of mass destruction. One blast from this device can cause either a reverse Big Bang or the extinction of all life in the universe. I wouldn’t want to be around to find out.

2: SCP-055 (Unknown)

Object Class: Keter. 

SCP-055 is a self keeping secret. Honestly, I have no idea what it is. Researchers are permitted to study it and interview it but after leaving they will forget everything about SCP-055. The fact that no one knows what it is or what its intentions are is good enough of a reason to say that this is probably one of the most dangerous SCPs on this list.

1: The Scarlet King (The Original SCP)

Originally, he was classified as SCP-001 but they couldn’t call him this as he is evil incarnate. It’s main goal? To bring on Armageddon and the destruction of all creation. The Scarlet King is a malevolent being and was born alongside with the Tree of Knowledge, he’s old as knowledge itself. He’s the overlord of darkness itself, so he’s the devil in a nutshell. It’s said that he is an elder god and has the power to destroy and conquer other worlds. What’s his problem? Well, he wants to declare war on all of creation. He’s basically the baddy of all baddies and deserves the #1 spot on this list.
