Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is an entity that appears most frequently in team-based multiplayer video games1. Username, game experience and linked social media vary from appearance to appearance, however its defining feature outside of its anomalous effects is an apparent inability to express anger, and often frequent compliments towards all players in the game. In addition, SCP-XXXX appears to be unable to use any form of verbal communications, should the game provide it, and has only been observed using in-game chat.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties occur when a subject who had played a game with SCP-XXXX reports it for any reason. After the subject reports SCP-XXXX, they will begin to receive messages from SCP-XXXX on various other devices,2 often giving positive reinforcement and further compliments. These compliments and reinforcements do not necessarily involve video games, as SCP-XXXX has shown to provide motivation towards other non-game related activities.

Subjects who are exposed to SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties have shown to be significantly more kind, passive or apathetic than they were prior to exposure, however this process is capable of being reversed through use of amnestics, albeit temporarily. Subjects who have been exposed to SCP-XXXX's effects for a significant period of time appear to be emotionally attached to SCP-XXXX, and will become visibly upset if denied the ability to communicate with it.3

The current number of subjects exposed to SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties is currently unknown.

Addendum XXXX-1:

On September 28th, 20██, Agent Ana Miann was successfully able to retrieve a subject exposed to SCP-XXXX by the name of Ji Sung ███, who will further be known as the Subject. Below is an interview with the Subject in his home, under the guise of investigating a potential breach of cyber security.

<Begin Log>

Agent Miann: Alright, Mister ███, it would seem as though your network has pinged our servers as being a bit of a problem.

Subject: Mhmm.

Agent Miann: Would you care to give us any information in regards to recent activities that could have caused this? Don't worry, anything can help.

Subject: I mean… not really. I've stopped doing a lot of anything recently, just been kinda focusing on… I dunno, staying alive?

Agent Miann: Alright, well, what did you do before, then? Before you decided to focus on staying… alive.

Subject: League of Legends, mostly. Basically all I did outside of college.

Agent Miann: Did anyone contact you while playing your game? There's a possibility that it was spread through a game without your knowing.

Subject: I… Yeah, a few people did. But don't worry, it wasn't them. They're chill, we're friends.

Agent Miann: Now, however chill these friends may be, I'm going to need you to be open to the possibility that it might have come from one of them. Who contacted you?

Subject: Some friends from online, no big deal.

Agent Miann: Did any of them have the username ████████████?

Subject and Agent Miann remain silent.

Agent Miann: Ji Sung, you're going to need to answer the question for me.

Subject: Yes. Yes, a new guy I started talking to has that username. But like I said, they're chill.

Agent Miann: How long have you been in contact with them?

Subject: Why are you asking about them? They're not guilty of anything. They're the person helping me get my shit together, there's no way that they'd be hacking anything.

Agent Miann: Listen, I'm just trying to do my job, alright? There's no need to get snippy at me. Answer the question. Please?

Subject looks visibly aggravated.

Subject: If you do anything to ████████████ I swear to fuck that I'll… I'll…

Subject's phone emits a text tone. Subject immediately removes his phone from his pocket and appears to open it.

Agent Miann: Ji Sung? Who texted you?

Subject remains silent as he reads the text that was sent.

Agent Miann: Alright, if you're just going to ignore me—

Subject: I apologize for acting aggressively. It was uncalled for when you're just trying to do your job.

Agent Miann: You're apologizing now?

Subject: Yes, I'm trying to get better at it. I need to get better at it for everyone's sake.

Agent Miann: Did the person you texted tell you that?

Subject remains silent.

Agent Miann: I'm afraid we might need to confiscate your phone if ████████████ can contact you with it.

Subject: What? No!

Agent Miann: We'll return it if it doesn't contain information critical to our investigation of the source of the security breach. If you don't give it to us now, we can always get a warrant.

Subject: I…

Subject's phone once again emits a text tone, which the Subject once again takes the time to read.

Agent Miann: Well?

Subject: Subject sighs. Alright.

<End Log>

Closing Statement: Subject gave Agent Miann his smartphone, which was returned after transcripts of correspondences with SCP-XXXX were copied and recorded. Attempts to contact SCP-XXXX with the smartphone resulted in no response.

Below are selected portions of correspondences between SCP-XXXX and the subject.

[Transcript #1 contains the first conversation Ji Sung had with XXXX, showing initial hostility and almost robotic responses from XXXX.]

[Transcript #2 shows XXXX's development over the conversations, eventually striking a nerve in Ji Sung.]

[Transcript #3 XXXX shares a strong moment with Ji Sung. Perhaps a family pet dies or he begins to fall behind on classes. XXXX sounds genuinely human, and Ji Sung considers it a friend.]

Addendum involving suggestion to declassify from Keter due to lack of overall threat

hey guys! i know im new to this whole community but i thought id try making a mister! i saw that mr dare was open so i made something that i think is pretty cool! i took the head from the dare music video and made it real, with a few twists of course. like, you know how the music video is all about making fun of old horror movies? well when mr dare starts singing people who listen to it start seeing horror movies! i know theres supposed to be like, some sort of part about it thatd be good for kids but i think that some kids might like it! maybe there are kids who like horror movies?

anyway people who want to check it out should take a look! if anything about it seems a little weird or if you just don't like it put your crits here on this post

Hey Bart, welcome to the community!

I just want to let you know that it's okay if a few people don't like what you made, because not everyone gets it right on the first try. It just takes determination to get it right!

That being said, I personally think your take on Mr. D.A.R.E. could use some work. For one thing, it's not referencing the right thing, and for another it's not exactly funny in my personal opinion. Like, it's just a head that plays horror movies. Not really the sort of thing that could last around here, sorry. Also, I'm personally a little worried about copyrighted stuff? From what you described, it's basically an exact copy of the head from the Dare music video, so we don't want to accidentally get into any legal trouble there.

I'm sure that there's some ways that you could edit it if you wanted, like, for one thing, making it actually about the D.A.R.E. organization? There's plenty of material you can use for it if you Google it, so I have faith you'll find some good stuff to work with.

D.A.R.E. is an educational program that was supposed to teach kids about not doing drugs but it failed so, SO hard and made kids just get more interested

Bit of an obscure meme to some people, I guess
