Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a humanoid containment chamber, and lined with various highly-dense sugar-based foodstuffs. If SCP-XXXX needs to be restrained for any reason, personnel are to bind the entity with bonds made of SCP-XXXX-C-11 There should be a minimum of two guards stationed outside the doorway at any time, and each assigned guard should specialize in hand-to-hand combat. SCP-XXXX is to be fed any expired or undesired snack foods from the Site-19 break room, although if these items are unavailable, any non-hazardous materials or items may be used instead. Important objects or people of any kind are not to be brought within the containment chamber without express permission from the on-site research head. If any object is modified by SCP-XXXX, it is to be immediately submitted for anomaly testing and subsequently incinerated or stored for consumption.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an obese Caucasian male, about 40 years old and with no visible hair. The entity displays the ability to replace most matter within a fifteen meter radius with various candies and sugary foods that happen to be similar in size and/or shape. These candies are anomalous as they do not contain any caloric content when consumed by any living creatures besides SCP-XXXX. When SCP-XXXX ingests any matter, it is converted into candy immediately upon contact with SCP-XXXX's saliva, regardless of its composition or state of matter. This allows the Foundation to provide SCP-XXXX whatever items happen to be present in excess as sustenance, although perishables from the break room are generally used for safety reasons. Consumption of candy created by SCP-XXXX generally has no unusually detrimental effects aside from those normally associated with candy2, although depending on the intentions of SCP-XXXX at the time of conversion, some candies pose a severe health risk to non-anomalous individuals as the consumption can occasionally result in undesirable effects ranging from mild respiratory discomfort or dissolution of the mouth and throat, to even complete petrification of the body. Some candies do not require consumption to show their damaging effects, and are to be immediately disposed of as Type-4 Hazardous Waste immediately upon identification.

SCP-XXXX has consistently used its anomalous abilities to replace weaponry, or potential weaponry within 10 meters of itself that could be utilized against it with various types and combinations of candy. This has been observed for a variety of firearms, hand-weapons and explosives. There is only one currently discovered method to block SCP-XXXX's ability within that distance, which is to completely encase the object with candy or sugar-based substances. SCP-XXXX's abilities are incapable of manifesting through objects made of or coated/lined with candy or sugary food. No other methods that have been tested have resulted in success; SCP-XXXX is capable of replacing a loaded handgun inside a lead-lined 7 cm thick steel safe with candy in less than 1 nanosecond, recorded on a high-speed camera. It is currently unknown how this anomalous effect occurs or whether this is some type of replacement from an unknown location.
