Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained at Site-19 within a fireproof glass containment cell measuring 1.25 x 1.25 x 1.25 meters.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an action figure measuring forty-five (45) centimeters tall recovered from Okayama, Japan in 19(blank). It appears to be modeled after the protagonist of the Ultraman™ television series, though several aesthetic inconsistencies and poor overall build quality indicate it is an unlicensed imitation. SCP-XXXX is animate, sapient, and is capable of verbal communication via a small speaker installed in its chest. SCP-XXXX refers to itself as Toshiro, a name given to it by its former owner (see Interview SCP-XXXX-01).

SCP-XXXX’s primary anomalous properties manifest when subjects afflicted with a non-anomalous psychiatric condition fall asleep within its range of effect1. Subjects will experience a lucid dream scenario that is thematically and aesthetically consistent with Japanese tokusatsu films from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Subjects typically awaken on the roof of a building overlooking a large city consistent with post-reconstruction Tokyo and have reported several consistent anomalies:

  • No visible human or animal life within the city.
  • The cessation of reality at the edge of the city.
  • An intermittent scratching and ‘graininess’ to all perceived audio.
  • The replacement of modern technology with analogous vacuum tube-based devices.

Shortly after the initiation of this lucid dream, subjects are made aware of the presence of one or more hostile anomalous entities, collectively termed SCP-XXXX-A, destroying the city. Instances of SCP-XXXX-A range in size from an estimated 60 to 122 meters in height and are of variable appearance, with size and form correlating with the subject’s psychiatric illness and its severity (see Log XXXX-01). SCP-XXXX-A will take notice of subjects and begin to move towards them before being engaged in combat by SCP-XXXX who will assume a variety of forms (see Log XXXX-01). To date, SCP-XXXX has a 100% success rate in eliminating instances of SCP-XXXX-A.

After dispatching SCP-XXXX-A, SCP-XXXX will bow politely to the subject and the subject will awaken. Following exposure to SCP-XXXX, subjects report a complete cessation of psychiatric illness.
