Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe (SCP-XXXX-2 has been classified as Neutralized)1 Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The entrance to SCP-XXXX is to be closed to public access under Cover Story 103 ("Geological Survey"). SCP-XXXX-B is to be monitored for any signs of movement. Foundation Multi-U assets are to remain on alert for future manifestations of SCP-XXXX-B. If any are observed, the current head researcher of the SCP-XXXX project is to be alerted.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a cave located in Kenya's Western Province, approximately one kilometer from the town of [REDACTED]. SCP-XXXX was discovered during a missing person investigation intending to find one Daniel ██████, a resident of [REDACTED] who had disappeared a month prior. After the anomaly's discovery, the Foundation took over and shut down the investigation.

The cave, upon initial exploration, contained a leaf blower on top of a table, a crudely constructed ramp leading into SCP-XXXX-A, and SCP-XXXX-A itself.

SCP-XXXX-A is an alcove in the cave, approx. 1.8m by 0.7m by 1m. Solid matter is incapable of entering SCP-XXXX-A, and is blocked by an invisible force. Prior to Incident XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-B was suspended in the center of SCP-XXXX-A.

SCP-XXXX-B is identical in appearance to, and is believed to be Daniel ██████. SCP-XXXX-B is clad in armor made of an unknown blue material, and does not move. As of Incident XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-B's location is not known.

Addendum 10/3/07: Interview Log

An interview was conducted with a local resident to determine whether or not Daniel ██████ exhibited anomalous properties prior to his designation as SCP-XXXX-B.

Interviewer: Agent ████

Interviewed Mrs. ████████, neighbor of Daniel ██████.

<Begin Log>

Agent ████: Did you notice anything strange about Daniel?

Mrs. ████████: This is about Daniel? I though the the investigation was shut down? Did something come up?

Agent ████: That is none of your concern. Do you remember Daniel doing anything out of the ordinary?

Mrs. ████████: Yes, actually. Nearly everything he did was off, to say the least. He never talked to anyone, he left town for long periods of time, though never as long as a month. Even his walk was weird; it just had… something not quite right about it. Now that I think about it, nobody really figured out how he came here. He wasn't there one second, then he was there the next. There was also the thing with the jar.

Agent ████: Jar?

Mrs. ████████: Yes, the jar. He had spent two weeks out of town, and he came back with this jar, a pretty big jar-I could probably fit my whole hand in there. The jar had some sort of black hole in it, just floating around in the jar! Of course, he didn't explain anything, he just sets it down in front of his house, opens the jar. and goes away for another week. Somehow the black hole didn't devour his house during that week, it just made stuff spin around. Then he comes back, empty handed, this time, and tries to pick up the jar.

Agent ████: He tried to? Did he drop it or something?

Mrs. ████████: Oh, it one hundred percent did not get dropped. It vanished. I saw him put his hand on the jar, and then it simply ceased to be. Black hole disappeared with it, too. Of course, he didn't ever bring it up. It was like he expected it to happen.

Agent ████: Do you think he expected the jar to disappear?

Mrs. ████████: I don't know. He didn't talk then, and he sure as hell isn't talking now.

Addendum 10/4/07: Home Investigation Results

On 10/4/07, Agent ████ entered Daniel ██████'s house. Notable items recovered include:

  • A drawing of SCP-XXXX-1's interior, with the word "perfect" written above it.
  • A receipt for a leaf blower, purchased one month prior to the missing person investigation that led to SCP-XXXX's discovery.
  • A sticky note reading "get blue armor-needed to punch through roof"
  • A fragment of a piece of paper. The words "breakthough speed" are visible.
  • A drawing of cityscape. A black dot is drawn over one of the buildings, and is labeled "displacement should put it here".
  • A drawing of a grid. Several cells in the grid are connected by arrows.

A full list of items is available in Supplementary Document XXXX-01.

Addendum 5/30/09: Incident XXXX-1

SCP-XXXX-B suddenly disappeared from containment on 5/30/09. The entity was recorded suddenly passing though the walls of SCP-XXXX at extremely fast speeds, then disappearing.

Three minutes later, Mobile Task Force Beta-6 ("Berlin Globetrotters") reported an entity similar in description to SCP-XXXX-B suddenly appearing during exploration of an alternate reality. The entity began moving east at high speeds after an hour, then manifested nine hours later during exploration of SCP-███, appearing in front of D-8672, who saw it turn such that its back was facing him, then suddenly propelled upwards, again disappearing.

SCP-XXXX-B would not be seen again until the next day, where it suddenly appeared 5300 meters above ground in Yerevan, Armenia, moving northwest until the appearance of a black sphere nearly a kilometer away, which redirected the movement of SCP-XXXX-B such that it began flying towards Site-83, crashing through the roof after ten seconds.

SCP-XXXX-B then proceeded to navigate through the facility. Security personnel were unable to detain the entity, as it continued to move at high speed. SCP-XXXX-B came to a stop at the containment chamber of SCP-████, broke through by diving into the chamber's glass walls, then grabbed the item. The entity did a dance of some kind, emitted a bright flash of light, and disappeared.

SCP-XXXX-B has not been seen since, and has been reclassified as Neutralized. SCP-XXXX-A is still in effect, however, and is to remain in containment. The black sphere has been contained and is pending SCP designation.

Addendum 1/10/15: Incident XXXX-2

Multi-U assets reported a sighting of SCP-XXXX-B during an exploration. SCP-XXXX has been reclassified to Euclid, pending further information.
[[tab Reverse Infovore]]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: This document both documents and contains SCP-XXXX. In addition to sensitive data, random parts of this document are to be redacted by a Foundation-operated bot, thereby "feeding" the anomaly and discouraging it from leaving this document.

The bot will also redact information if it is both sensitive and has been exposed by SCP-XXXX's effect.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a digital entity that has infiltrated the Foundation database and is actively removing redactions, replacing them with the data the [REDACTED] was meant to hide. SCP-XXXX displays behavior typical for infovorous [REDACTED] entities, such as SCP-560, traveling though the database to "hunt" for files to alter, and returning to a "home" when it is not active.

SCP-XXXX has made its home within the slot for this document. Prior to containment on January 4, 2013, the anomaly had filled the slot with a [REDACTED] containing no data and no title.
[[tab Anomalous Investment Firm]]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a standard humanoid containment cell. In-person interaction with SCP-XXXX is forbidden without the permission of a Level 2 researcher. Staff assigned to SCP-XXXX are to be reminded that the anomaly is a human and not a corporation.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 43 year-old Albanian male named Niko Hadri. SCP-XXXX is 1.77 meters in height, and approx. 81 kg in weight.

All individuals who have interacted or observed SCP-XXXX in person will always perceive it as an investment firm named Niko Hadri Investment Management, Inc, headed by a man named Niko Hadri, who is apparently unrelated to SCP-XXXX. Persons affected by the anomaly have been known to ask SCP-XXXX for either financial advice or for a financial consultant, attempt to use SCP-XXXX to invest money, and accuse the entity's CEO of committing fraud.

SCP-XXXX, prior to containment, worked at a construction company, and initially assumed that the bizarre interactions with its coworkers were an inside joke, and was not aware of any anomaly affecting itself.

During the 1997 Albanian civil unrest, SCP-XXXX was repeatedly attacked and assaulted by individuals who had "invested" money using SCP-XXXX, claiming that SCP-XXXX's leadership had committed a Ponzi scheme. During this period, SCP-XXXX fled Albania for Greece, telling the border guard that it was relocating its headquarters. The Foundation contained SCP-XXXX after reports of its repeated attacks and strange social interactions surfaced.

SCP-XXXX has financial knowledge roughly equal to that of a lay person.
[[tab This Trying Time]]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Mobile Task Force Zeta-9 ("Cheese Stakes") has been tasked with recovering instances of SCP-XXXX-1. Upon capture, instances are to be terminated. Five instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be contained in standard humanoid containment chambers in Site-17 for the purpose of research into the origin of SCP-XXXX-1 instances. Site-84 has been established near SCP-XXXX-2, and is to serve as the base for research. Current research of the SCP-XXXX phenomenon is focused towards exploration of SCP-XXXX-2, and the analysis of recovered anomalous materials and paratechnology.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the phenomenon that creates SCP-XXXX-1 instances.

SCP-XXXX-1 instances are clones of American actor Daniel Michael DeVito Jr., commonly known as Danny DeVito. All instances have been shown to be genetically identical to the original Danny DeVito, and most have similar mannerisms. Every SCP-XXXX-1 instance recovered has had the same memories up to their sixtieth birthday, with some small variations. Instances are of variable age, however, no instance is younger than sixty, nor are any instances older than Danny DeVito2.

The first SCP-XXXX-1 instance was discovered on June 3, 2009, after reports surfaced that Danny DeVito was walking on the streets of Boise, Idaho. The Foundation was alerted to a potential anomaly when two more DeVito "imposters" were found in Washington, D.C, and Omaha, Nebraska, followed by DeVito stating that he was at home in Beverly Hills, California. The instances were contained without incident, and the entities were blamed on a hoax.

SCP-XXXX-1 instances have been found across the Americas, but of the 2005 instances recorded, 1944 were found in the Midwestern United States.

Addendum 04/07/10: Interview with SCP-XXXX-1-01

An interview was conducted in an effort to determine the origin of SCP-XXXX-1 instances

Interviewer: Dr. Joseph Edison

Interviewed SCP-XXXX-1-01

<Begin Log>

Extraneous data has been removed for brevity.

Dr. Edison: What happened on your sixtieth birthday?

SCP-XXXX-1-01: You know, that memory always stuck out to me. It's sort of strange-it's one of my earliest memories, but at the same time, it's not. I know I was born in, uh, New Jersey, but that earliest memory is somewhere in Nebraska, or that sort of area. Also, as you said, that was my sixtieth birthday, so that adds more to the pile. I'm not entirely convinced that the whole memory wasn't a fucked up dream or nightmare.

Dr. Edison: Yes, I understand, but could you describe what happened?

SCP-XXXX-1-01: I was getting to that, yes. I was in this box, maybe a tube, but some sort of small space. I had no clothes on, and I was floating in something or other; it was this clear gooey stuff, kind of like soap or jelly. I had a bunch of tubes sticking into my body, I think, and I remembered that I was born in New Jersey and that I was Danny DeVito and that I was in in Taxi and I directed Matilda and that sort of thing, that sort of deal. And now here's where things stop making sense. SCP-XXXX-1-01 pauses.

Dr. Edison: Please continue.

SCP-XXXX-1-01: The tubes, right, the tubes that were going into my veins and my brain and stuff, they all just pull out of my body. It wasn't painful, it was uncomfortable, but it was more akin to getting a shot than, you know, what getting ten pipes pulled out of your body should feel like. The box or tube or whatever opens up like a DeLorean, and I fall out of the thing, and it closes back up. I take a look around, figure out what the hell's going on, and all I see is just a absolutely decrepit room with more tubes, though they looked banged up and smashed. I find a hallway out, and I'm like, "what's the harm in going through the hallway." Eventually, after an hour or so, I find a locker with clothes in it, so I take that, obviously, and I walk for another hour in the hallway, which is just as gross as the room, and before you know it, I'm outta there.

Dr. Edison: How did you get to Idaho? That's quite the distance from Kansas, don't you think?

SCP-XXXX-1-01: I hitchhiked. You can get quite far if you're, you know, someone like me, eh?Subject laughs.

[[tab United Anomaly Republic]]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: Despite its neutralization, personnel are to be stationed at and around the facility that SCP-XXXX was housed in, due to unstable reality within an approximately 1km radius surrounding the item's remains. Efforts will be made to reverse-engineer the paratechnology used in SCP-XXXX when surrounding reality stabilizes and it is safe to approach.

Description: Most information concerning SCP-XXXX is from records obtained from the Egyptian government, as the item was neutralized prior to Foundation obtainment of it.

SCP-XXXX was an anomalous weapon developed by the Pan-Arab Anomaly Research Organization (PAARO)3 sometime in mid to late 1957 and destroyed by the Israeli Air Force on June 8, 1967. Despite its location in the southern Sinai Peninsula, SCP-XXXX was capable of assassinating individuals across the globe if it was provided with an individual's name, and an image4. of said individual (henceforth referred to as "target.")Upon the providing of this data, the target's entire body would be set on fire. This fire could not be extinguished until the death of the target. SCP-XXXX was used to kill prominent individuals on two occasions: on October 3, 1957, in order to assist government takeover of Foundation facilities, and in November 23, 1958, to assassinate the O5 Council.

Addendum XXXX-1: First known SCP-XXXX activation.

On October 3, 1957, several Site Directors, Mobile Task Force Members, and other Foundation personnel stationed in Egypt were abruptly set on fire and killed. Shortly after, Egyptian soldiers stormed all Foundation facilities in Egypt, successfully capturing all of them in the wake of the chaos caused by the deaths. A telegram from the Egyptian government was sent to Overwatch HQ, announcing the nationalization of Foundation sites, as well as transfer of anomalies and facilities to the PAARO. Attempts at negotiation with the Egyptian government were made, without success.

On November 20, 1958, a Foundation agent embedded in the Egyptian government was instructed to assassinate Nasser
[[tab Australian Blood Ritual]]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation Site-55's Containment Chamber 734 has been furnished in a similar manner to Australian Church of Australia (ACA) chapels, and blessed by an ACA priest. Containment Chamber 734 is to be equipped with the necessary materials to perform SCP-XXXX, save for organic matter. A population of 50 Dromaius novaehollandiaeus is to be kept in Site-55, as are 50 D-Class personnel who have undergone
