Item #: SCP-000
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-000 is to be kept in a standard humanoid containment cell furnished with a bed and appropriate medical equipment, and assigned two guards at all times. SCP-000's nutritional regimen may require an IV feed, as SCP-000 will occasionally refuse to eat or drink.
No personnel are to come within 0.5 m of any instance of SCP-000-01. Guards are to be armed with ISIS-XIV 'sticky foam' weapons. All instances of SCP-000-01 are to be immobilized, retrieved, and incinerated upon separation from SCP-000, except when requisitioned for experimental purposes.
Description: SCP-000 is a thirteen-year-old human female. SCP-000 periodically displays symptoms of brain damage, including aphasia, various monothematic delusions (particularly the Cotard delusion, believing it is not dead or does not exist), problems with movement, and difficulty comprehending or interacting with its surroundings.
Every 20-120 minutes, one to three autonomous creatures will bud from SCP-000's body. These creatures, referred to as SCP-000-01, have the appearance of deformed dolls, usually patterned after the form of a human infant. They possess a small body, oversized head, and two to four limbs.
Despite appearance of artificiality, SCP-000-01 are composed of biological material that is genetically similar to that of SCP-000 and possess a variety of nonfunctional internal organs. Instances of SCP-000-01 typically either lie still or crawl about their environment at a slow pace with no apparent aim, changing direction only when colliding with an obstacle.
SCP-000 does not demonstrate control over SCP-000-01 instances, nor their generation process. SCP-000-01 instances do not demonstrate awareness of SCP-000's existence.
If SCP-000-01 comes within range of any living human, it will attempt to attach itself to the creature's body via its mouth. Instances of SCP-000-01 without mouths will attempt this attachment process but are unable to successfully complete it. Once attached, SCP-000-01 is very difficult to remove except by its destruction.
Once SCP-000-01 is attached to a host, certain of the host's physical abilities steadily increase. Host skin becomes harder to pierce and bones become harder to break. As a side effect, skin gains a rubbery plastic quality. When fully transformed hosts are wounded, blood flow stops immediately in the area of the injury, preventing major blood loss. In addition, hosts undergo the following changes:
- Group A: 60% of hosts. Improved reaction time and visual acuity. Form discoloration on back of neck in rough shape of rifle.
- Group B: 30% of hosts. Improved strength and speed. Form discoloration on back of neck in rough shape of a knife.
- Group C: 10% of hosts. No further changes. Form discoloration on back of neck with no distinct shape.
Effects increase for 36-48 hours if SCP-000-01 remains attached to the host, and can reach superhuman levels. The host remains mentally unaffected until the end of the process, besides natural psychological disturbance. SCP-000-01 will remain inert during this process, besides blinking and occasional chewing.
Removal of SCP-000-01 from a host is typically fatal after transformation has completed. Fully transformed hosts demonstrate increased levels of obedience and slower brain function in social situations, but retain most of their original mental characteristics.
Retrieval Log: SCP-000 was retrieved in [REDACTED], Texas, a small town deserted after an apparent SCP-000-01 outbreak on ██/██/████. SCP-000 was discovered unconscious in a bed in a deserted house near the center of the town. SCP-000's parents and siblings were discovered dead with signs of torture and their throats torn out. Foundation personnel have been unable to extract any information about this event or its surrounding circumstances from SCP-000. See Addendum 000-1107.
Addendum 000-107: Further interrogation of SCP-000 indicates that SCP-000 was created by a distinct entity tentatively labeled as SCP-000-02. According to SCP-000, SCP-000-02 told it that it was to be offered to the Foundation as a gift, and that "gifts" were "put inside" SCP-000's body (presumably but not explicitly SCP-000-01). SCP-000 has been unable or unwilling to provide any further information or description regarding SCP-000-02. It is not currently known if this entity possesses other instances of SCP-000.
Addendum 000-113: [DATA EXPUNGED] have not yet been identified. Remains consist of at least six dead female children, ranging in age from 12 to 16. Investigation indicates that this is one of several such 'shelters'. Five of the corpses exhibit signs of apparently cancerous deformities, including massive fleshy growths. In two cases, these growths are bigger than the body of the child itself. A third growth appears to have begun decomposing while the child was still alive. In addition, three other female children [DATA EXPUNGED] snippet reads "we must reach out to [REDACTED] repeated instances of the words "try again" and another instance of the word "ingratitude". The remainder of the text is mostly obscured due to water damage. Investigation is ongoing.

Item #: SCP-000
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-000's growth process must be delayed or halted by any means possible. Currently, the only known means of delaying SCP-00's growth process is exposure to type 08-07935 M-class radiation. Research is high-priority and ongoing.
SCP-000 must be contained in a closed chamber measuring 250 square meters, lined with reinforced steel plate. A minimum of six M-class radiation generators are to be placed in equidistant locations surrounding the chamber. Generators must remain powered on at all times.
SCP-000 must be kept under observation at all times in case of activity or growth acceleration. Twenty (20) D-class personnel must be kept on hand at all times in case early execution of Procedure Saratoga-821-K is required.
SCP-000-1 (referred to as "lure" for clarity purposes) must be kept alive by any means possible, short of risk of cross-SCP contamination or direct human contact. Remote devices MRD-000-01 - MRD-000-12 are to be kept outside SCP-000's containment chamber, ready to attend to the lure's medical and dietary needs at all times. Containment chamber must be kept as sterile as possible.
Instances of SCP-000-2 (referred to as "animates" for clarity purposes) are to be discouraged from attempts at breaching containment by any means necessary, so long as the lure is not put in physical danger and SCP-000's central mass is not affected.
Every XXX-XXX hours (XX-XX days), SCP-000's central mass will increase activity, followed quickly in an increase in interaction between the animates and the lure. These interactions will accelerate for the following two to three (2 - 3) hours, or the following four to six (4 - 6) hours if SCP-000 is being directly observed, before the lure is terminated and SCP-000 breaches containment. Termination of the lure must be avoided at all costs. As soon as animate-lure interactions increase in frequency (rise above one 20-minute interaction per 3 hours), Procedure Saratoga must be executed immediately.
Rapid Response Task Force Omicron-28 ("Red Rabbit") is tasked with locating and containing SCP-000 as soon as possible on breach of containment. Task force must be on standby during Procedure Saratoga-821-K, and must be alerted immediately if SCP-000 exits containment.
Procedure Saratoga-821-K: One (1) D-class personnel must be placed in the sealed entrance chamber to the containment area. This D-class subject must be allowed full view of animate-lure interactions. This D-class personnel must have a moderate to high degree of empathy, and is to be instructed that he or she will be released to "save" the lure as soon as possible, though it may take hours. Personnel should be provided with a weapon if possible to further this fiction; weapon must not be capable of breaching entrance chamber.
Once animate-lure interactions have increased to the point where the lure is in danger of termination (usually after 4 - 6 hours of observation), the D-class personnel is to be released into SCP-000's containment area immediately. Five (5) D-class personnel are to be kept on standby in adjacent chambers in case initial D-class refuses to enter SCP-000's containment area; any personnel refusing to enter are to be terminated immediately and replaced with the next in line.
SCP-000 is a large, amorphous, non-locomotive "blob"-like entity of unknown nature, which coats everything in its field of influence (including itself) with a mercury-like substance that has a transformative effect on biological material and is resistant or impervious to almost all forms of damage. This substance is monochromatic, with a color that varies between SCP-000 configurations.
Any animal that enters SCP-000's field of influence is immediately enveloped by SCP-000's secreted substance and transformed into an animate. SCP-000 appears to target humans, and the process works fastest for humans, but any animal is vulnerable, and any moving mechanical device will also be partially enveloped (but not transformed) if it remains still in the field of influence for more than 6 minutes. SCP-000 appears to derive sustenance for growth by this incorporation, even though victims are not physically consumed and have been retrieved intact (if altered) twice. Animates have taken different forms in each of SCP-000's catalogued configurations, but forms are typically related to the animal's original form, with human animates displaying the most variation.
SCP-000 also incorporates one to three animals into its form that it does not transform into animates; these are referred to as lures. These lures are not physically altered in any way, though if it is badly injured, SCP-000 will coat the lure's injured body part with its excreted substance and heal the wound through unknown means. Additionally, the lures are incapable of leaving SCP-000's field of influence just as animates are. SCP-000 has always incorporated lures before creating animates.
Animates spend most of their time (60-80%) standing or sitting still, either within SCP-000's area of influence or attached to SCP-000's central form. The rest of their time is spent interacting with the lure
an effort to entice more human subjects to enter SCP-000's field of influence. Lure-animate interactions are detailed in the Configurations section.
SCP-000 is steadily growing, and has increased its mass and its field by [REDACTED] respectively since initial Foundation containment. SCP-000 currently measures 60 m in diameter and weighs approximately 12 kg as of ██/██/████. SCP-000's field of influence is 239 square meters and is increasing at a rate of [REDACTED] as of ██/██/████. The field's extent has only been successfully decreased once, during Incident 000-1211XA-D. SCP-000's current rate of expansion is projected to result in an NK-class "grey goo" end-of-the-world scenario or potentially [DATA EXPUNGED]
As of ██/██/████, SCP-XXX has incorporated:
- 26 humans (not including an additional 2 which have been retrieved, and [REDACTED] eliminated in Incident 000-1211XA-D; see Addenda)
- 4 dogs
- 3 cats
- 2 birds
- multiple insects, spiders, and other small life forms
SCP-000 has demonstrated [REDACTED] known configurations so far.
SCP-000 is currently contained in Auxiliary Site-5676-A, built around the location it has currently infested. This location is a house located in a former suburban neighborhood of [REDACTED], a large U.S. city. Since SCP-000 cannot be moved to a specific location, area residents have been relocated and given amnesiacs.
