The SCP Foundation[note 3] is a fictional secret organization documented by the collaborative writingwiki project of the same name. Within the website's shared universe, the SCP Foundation is responsible for capturing and containing various paranormal, supernatural, and other mysterious phenomena unexplained by mainstream science (known as "anomalies" or "SCPs"), while also keeping their existence hidden from the rest of global human society. The real-world website is community-based and includes elements of many genres such as horror, science fiction, and urban fantasy.
On the SCP Wiki, the majority of works consist of SCP files (short for "Special Containment Procedures"), which are confidential reports that document an SCP object and the means of keeping it contained. The website also contains thousands of "Foundation Tales", which are short stories featuring various characters and settings in the SCP universe. The wiki's literary works have been praised for their ability to convey horror through a quasi-scientific and academic writing style, as well as for their high standards of quality.
The SCP universe has inspired numerous adaptations and fan-made works in widely varying forms of media, including the horror indie video gamesSCP – Containment Breach and SCP: Secret Laboratory.
Overview of the SCP universe
The SCP Foundation is an international secret society, consisting of a scientific research institution with a paramilitary intelligence agency to support their goals. The Foundation is entrusted by governments around the world to capture and contain various unexplained phenomena that defy the known laws of nature (referred to as "anomalies", "SCP objects", "SCPs", or colloquially "skips"). They include living beings and creatures, artifacts and objects, locations and places, abstract concepts, and incomprehensible entities which display supernatural abilities or other extremely unusual properties. If left uncontained, many of the more dangerous anomalies will pose a serious threat to humans or even all life on Earth. Their existence is hidden and withheld from the general public in order to prevent mass hysteria, and allow human civilization to continue functioning normally.
Whenever an SCP anomaly is discovered, teams of undercover Foundation agents (often called Mobile Task Forces) are deployed to either collect and transport the object to a Foundation facility, or to contain it at its location of discovery if transportation is not possible. If an SCP is too widespread, elusive, or otherwise inaccessible, containment consists of suppressing all knowledge of the SCP from the public. This is accomplished both through censorship of mass media, and forcing all eyewitnesses to take amnestic drugs which erase their memories of anomalous events.
Once SCPs are contained and secured at the Foundation's secret facilities by armed guards, they are studied and researched by scientists in order to improve containment methods for them. The Foundation acquires human test subjects known as D-class personnel (who are usually convicted criminals taken from prisons around the world), and force them to interact with SCPs in science experiments or containment procedures; due to the potential danger posed by some SCPs, and the expendability of the D-class. The Foundation maintains documentation for all SCPs which they are aware of, which can include or link to related reports and files. These documents describe the SCPs and include instructions for keeping them safely contained.
Apart from the Foundation itself, there are numerous rival organizations (collectively referred to as Groups of Interest, or GoIs) which are also aware of the existence of paranormal phenomena, and interact with them for various purposes. Examples of major GoIs include the Chaos Insurgency, a terrorist splinter group consisting of ex-Foundation defectors, who attempt to capture SCP objects to weaponize them; the Global Occult Coalition (GOC), a secret paramilitary agency of the United Nations which specializes in destroying supernatural threats instead of containing them; and the Serpent's Hand, a militant group which advocates for the rights of anomalous beings, resisting both the Foundation's and GOC's efforts to suppress all paranormal activity worldwide. Other Groups of Interest seek to exploit anomalies by producing or selling them for monetary profit; or using them to serve their own religious, political, or ideological goals.
Examples of contained SCPs
- SCP-055 is something that causes anyone who examines it to forget its various characteristics, thus making it indescribable except in terms of what it is not.
- SCP-087 is a staircase that appears to descend forever. The staircase is inhabited by SCP-087-1, which is described as a face without a mouth, pupils or nostrils. The sound of a child crying is also omnipresent, but the source is unknown; descending the stairs has no effect on the cries' volume, despite them seemingly originating from the "bottom" of the stairwell.
- SCP-108 is a Nazi bunker system that is only accessible through a portal found in a woman's nose.
- SCP-173 is a humanoid statue composed of rebar, concrete and Krylon spray paint. It is stationary when directly observed, but it attacks people and snaps their neck when the line of sight with it is broken. It is extremely fast, to the point where it can move multiple meters while the observer is blinking.
- SCP-294 is a coffee machine that can dispense anything that does or can exist in liquid form.
- SCP-426 is a toaster that can only be referred to in the first person.
- SCP-1171 is a home whose windows are always covered in condensation; by writing in the condensation on the glass, it is possible to communicate with an extra-dimensional entity whose windows are likewise covered in condensation. This entity bears significant hostility towards humans but does not know that the Foundation members are humans.
- SCP-1609 is a mulch that teleports into the lungs of anyone who approaches it in an aggressive fashion or while wearing certain uniforms. It was previously a peaceful chair that teleported to whichever nearby person felt the need to sit down, but it entered its current aggressive state after being inserted into a woodchipper by members of the Global Occult Coalition.
- SCP-3008 is an IKEA retail store that has an infinite interior space with no outer physical bounds, causing prospective customers to be trapped after they become lost within the pocket dimension. It contains a rudimentary civilization formed by those customers, who are forced to survive and defend themselves against hostile creatures known as SCP-3008-2: tall, faceless humanoids wearing IKEA employee uniforms, that become violently aggressive towards all humans at night.
On the SCP Wiki, the majority of works are stand-alone articles detailing the "Special Containment Procedures" of a given SCP object. In a typical article, an SCP object is assigned a unique identification number. The SCP object is then assigned an "object class" (for example, "Euclid" or "Keter") based on the difficulty of containing it.[note 4] The documentation then outlines proper containment procedures and safety measures, and then describes the SCP object in question. Addenda, such as images, research data or status updates, may also be attached to the document. The reports are written in a scientific tone and often "redact" information. As of August 2021, articles exist for nearly 6,600 SCP objects;[note 5] new articles are frequently added.
The SCP Wiki contains over 4,200 short stories referred to as "Foundation Tales". The stories are set within the larger SCP universe, and often focus on the exploits of various Foundation staff members, SCP entities and objects, among other recurring characters and settings. Gregory Burkart, writing for Blumhouse Productions, noted that some of the Foundation Tales had a dark and bleak tone, while others were "surprisingly light-hearted".
The SCP universe lacks a central canon, but stories on the wiki are frequently linked together to create larger narratives. Contributors have the ability to create "canons", which are clusters of SCPs and Foundation Tales with similar locations, characters, or central plot. Many "canons" have hub pages that explain their basic concept and provide information such as timelines and character lists.
The genres of the SCP Wiki have variously been described as science fiction, urban fantasy, horror and creepypasta.
The SCP Foundation originated in the "paranormal" /x/ forum of 4chan, where the very first SCP file, SCP-173, was posted by an anonymous user in 2007. Initially a stand-alone short story, many additional SCP files were created shortly after; these new SCPs copied SCP-173's style and were set within the same fictional universe. A stand-alone wiki was created in January 2008 on the EditThis wiki hosting service to display the SCP articles. The EditThis website did not have moderators, or the ability to delete articles. Members communicated through individual article talk pages and the /x/ board; the website lacked a central discussion forum. In July 2008, the SCP Wiki was transferred to its current Wikidot website after EditThis switched to a paid model.
The current Wikidot website contains numerous standard wiki features such as keyword searches and article lists. The wiki also contains a news hub, guides for writers and a central discussion forum. The wiki is moderated by staff teams; each team is responsible for a different function such as community outreach and discipline. Wikidot users are required to submit an application before they are allowed to post content. Every article on the wiki is assigned a discussion page, where members can evaluate and provide constructive criticism on submitted stories. The discussion pages are frequently used by authors to improve their stories. Members also have the ability to "upvote" articles they like and to "downvote" articles they dislike; articles that receive too many net downvotes are deleted. Writers from the Daily Dot and Bustle have noted that the website maintains strict quality control standards, and that sub-par content tends to be quickly removed.
The Wikidot website routinely holds creative writing contests to encourage submissions. For example, in November 2014, the SCP Wiki held a "Dystopia Contest" in which its members were encouraged to submit writings about the Foundation set in a bleak or degraded world.
Apart from the original English wiki, 14 official foreign language branches exist, and some of their articles have been translated into English.[note 1] The Wanderer's Library is a sister site and spin-off of the SCP Wiki. It uses the same setting as the SCP universe, but is made up of fantastical stories rather than scientific reports. The SCP community also maintains a role-playing site, a forum on Reddit, and accounts on Facebook and Twitter.
The SCP Foundation has received largely positive reviews. Michelle Starr of CNET praised the creepy nature of the stories. Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, writing for the Daily Dot, praised the originality of the wiki and described it as the "most uniquely compelling horror writing on the Internet". She noted that Special Containment Procedures rarely contained gratuitous gore. Rather, the horror of the series was often established through the reports' "pragmatic" and "deadpan" style, as well as through the inclusion of detail. Lisa Suhay, writing for the Christian Science Monitor, also noted the SCP Wiki's "tongue-in-cheek style".
Alex Eichler, writing for io9, noted that the series had varying levels of quality and that some of the reports were dull or repetitive. However, he praised the SCP stories for not becoming overly dark, and for containing more light-hearted reports. Additionally, he praised the wide variety of concepts covered in the report and said that the wiki contained writings that would appeal to all readers. Leigh Alexander, writing for The Guardian, noted that the wiki's voting system allows readers to easily locate content which "the community thinks are best and most scary."
Winston Cook-Wilson, writing for Inverse, compared the SCP stories to the writings of American author H. P. Lovecraft. Like Lovecraft, SCP casefiles generally lack action sequences and are written in a pseudo-academic tone. Cook-Wilson argued that both Lovecraft's works and those of the SCP Wiki were strengthened by the tensions between their detached scientific tone and the unsettling, horrific nature of the stories being told.
Bryan Alexander, writing in The New Digital Storytelling, stated that the SCP Foundation is possibly "the most advanced achievement of wiki storytelling" due to the large-scale and recurring process through which the wiki's user-base creates literary content.
Andrew Paul, writing for Dark(ish) Web on Medium, noted the large variety in style throughout the works and related the short-writing format to current trends in digital media such as Snapchat and Vine. He also describes its bureaucratic tone's political parallels, which in his eyes adds to the horror.
In October 2014, a stage play entitled Welcome to the Ethics Committee was performed in Dublin at the Smock Alley Theatre. The play focused on the SCP Foundation's Ethics Committee, a body that tries to limit unethical containment procedures. In mid-2016, the Glasgow New Music Expedition under conductor Jessica Cottis performed works inspired by the SCP Foundation at the 10th annual Plug festival of contemporary music.
SCP Foundation: Iris Through the Looking-Glass is a light novel series written by Akira and illustrated by Sidu. The book focuses on a boy who is kidnapped by the SCP Foundation after he sees a picture of Iris, a female SCP, in every book he opens; the boy and Iris are forced to cooperate to escape the Foundation. The novel series began publication in Japan in September 2018, and was released by Seven Seas Entertainment in North America in January 2020.
The SCP Foundation has inspired numerous independent video games:
- SCP – Containment Breach, one of the most popular games based on the SCP Foundation, was released by Finnish developer Joonas Rikkonen in 2012. The player character is an unnamed D-class who attempts to escape from a containment facility. The player must avoid armed Foundation guards and escaped SCPs, including SCP-173. The game includes a blink function, which makes the player close their eyes and allow SCP-173 to approach.
- SCP: Secret Laboratory is a multiplayer game based on Containment Breach. Players have the option of playing as an SCP, an escaping scientist, a D-class, the armed militia of the defending SCP Foundation or the attacking Chaos Insurgency.
- Other video games include SCP-3008 (a planned multiplayer game set in SCP-3008) and SCP-087 (a horror game about walking down SCP-087).
- Control, a video game created by Remedy Entertainment, was first revealed at E3 2018 and released in August 2019. The video game was heavily influenced by the SCP Foundation, with the game centered on a fictional Federal Bureau of Control that collects mundane objects imbued with paranormal influence to study and keep secure.

The Secure Containment Procedures Foundation, commonly abbreviated SCP Foundation, is the titular anti-heroic main protagonistic faction of the SCP Mythos. It is an extremely diverse and well-funded paranormal organization dedicated to the apprehension and containment of anomalies, ranging from creatures to objects, locations, events and phenomena, known as "SCPs".
The organization is overall dedicated to understanding anomalous occurrences and permanently incarcerating them so that they are kept away from humanity, whether it is for the SCPs' safety from society or vice versa.
Despite certainly having good intentions, the Foundation has frequently committed several morally questionable or downright villainous acts throughout the mythos in order to accomplish their goals.
The Foundation captures and contains all abnormal occurrences, whether they are threatening or not. Every SCP is experimented upon, and tests are conducted on them on a daily basis.
Just like Creepypasta, SCP started spreading all over the internet, until the SCP website was launched in 2008, which has been collecting and documenting SCPs. One of the first SCPs that popularized the SCP Foundation was SCP-173, also known as The Sculpture. Today, there have been over 5000 entities and articles on the website and in the foundation. New ones are still being discovered and contained to this day.
The exact nature of the SCP Foundation's founding is unknown, but over the years there have been many myths, involving everything from the Angel who guarded the Garden of Eden to a supernatural post-Civil War Factory. The true origin will likely remain hidden forever, but it was known that Foundation (or a precursor) was operating already in the 19th Century and was a powerful organization on the world stage by the 20th Century, being acknowledged by both the Anomalous community and most national governments.
After the World War I, the Foundation created a special Task Force known only as the "Insurgency", which would perform more the more questionable tasks of the Foundation. This Task force would be deployed in 1925.
The Foundation took part in the Seventh Occult War (which ran concurrent with the World War II), and while its role in the war was not known, it is presumed they were fighting the Thule Society and Ahnenerbe Obskurakorps, who tried to perform the "Rite of Solomon". Eventually the war ended, and the Foundation continued to its normal duties of containing.
The Global Occult Coalition was formed, since the governments of the world wanted a force against the anomalous that they could control, but the Foundation continued to work with them,
In 1948, the Insurgency went A.W.O.L. and rose against the Foundation, obtaining several with several SCPs in the process, and renaming themselves the Chaos Insurgency.
In the 20th Century, the Foundation came across thousands of anomalies, making the best in containing them, as well as coming in contact with several rival and enemy factions.
In the 1950s to 1980s, the Foundation would also discover to the re-emergence of Sarkicism, with devastating anomalies in Europe like SCP-610 and SCP-2191-3, as well as cults like Adytum's Wake and The Hunter's Black Lodge spreading their influence.
The Foundation would also discovered several anomalies tied to an ancient, malevolent eldritch being, for which they would have to perform some of its more questionable procedures, such as Procedure 110-Montauk, which involved brutally raping a girl as part of a ritual to prevent the birth of the being's child.
In 2007, the Foundation would discover Anderson Robotics, a corporation that develops advanced androids and artificial intelligence, who used advanced fly-like drones to spy on the Foundation.
Despite the emergence of these things, the Foundation has been able to pursue their mission statement without breaking the status quo too much.
Ranks and Structure
All Foundation personnel are sworn to secrecy and are expected to be loyal and professional in their duties. For example matters like personal morals or superstition should never cloud their judgement during work.
The SCP-Foundation is led by the Overseer Council, also known as the O5-Council. The O-5 Council consists of usually 13 people who are often only defined as O5-1 through O5-13. The O5-council have unlimited access to all files and reports without any data expunged or redacted. The Council usually decides major decision with anomalies that have existential threats to humanity or the universe at large but can influence anything. It is often speculated that O5's may be anomalous themselves.
The Ethics Committee also wields a lot of power inside the Foundation. Most personnel considers the Ethics Committee as a joke or myth, but in reality, the leaders of this Committee are described to have the same power as the O5's. They hide in plain sight and apparently have some authority over the O5-Council. The Committee decides what is ethically acceptable for the Foundation to do in their mission statement.
Site-Directors are high-ranking researchers that lead the different containment-sites around the world. They often have Assistant Directors of different expertise that assist them inside the facilities. Site-Directors are also usually the highest ranking officials who still have a full name and not a numeric designation like with the O5-Council.
Mobile Task Forces
Mobile Task Forces, or MTFs, are the Foundation's most effective and skilled personnel. They can be anything from scientists and researchers to Elite Special Forces Soldiers (The most common variant used in stories or media about the SCP Universe). Mobile Task Forces are, as the name suggests, mobile and can operate on either Containment-Sites or in the Field. They usually deal with the most dangerous anomalies, where the more common field and recovery agents might lack knowledge or training. MTF's often also have specialties: Example: MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") is specified in tracking anomalous electronic devices, technology, and transmission, and either try to contain or block them. The most famous/infamous Mobile Task Force is MTF Alpha-1 ("Red Right Hand"), who consist of the Foundations best and loyal operatives and employees. Despite this MTF Alpha-1 is often connected to the creation of the Chaos Insurgency, a rival organization that seeks to destroy the Foundation.
Researchers are doctors and scientists that research on the anomalies. Their duties can vary from experimentation on the anomalies to developing Special Containment Procedures. Security clearances and ranks also vary from simple Research Assistants to Site-Directors and everything in between. The expertise of researchers can vary from different scientific fields like technology to zoology or different anomalous field. Example for the ladder is that Dr. Judith Low is specialized with anomalies that relate to Grand Karcist Ion and his following, Sarkicism.
The Containment Specialists are employees who design and uphold the Special Containment Procedures of anomalies. Containment Specialists can be anything from technicians to doctors to security personnel, and these duties often overlap with other ranks.
The facilities of the Foundation employs Security Personnel that serve as the primary defense force in doors. Their duties rank from guarding anomalies to serving as body guards for higher ranking officials. Their duty often overlap with Containment Specialists and MTFs.
Field Agents are responsible for detecting anomalies in outside world. They can be placed in any organization, whether it is an government, a company or in a military or law enforcement organization. They serve as eyes and ears and contact the Foundation when something anomalous is detected.
Recovery Teams are usually called in by Field Agents when an anomaly is found. They are responsible for capturing the anomaly and transporting it back to the a Foundation-owned facility. As mentioned before, with more dangerous anomalies MTFs are sent in.
Class-D Personnel are the lowest ranking staff of the Foundation. Usually recruited from convicted criminals, especially the death row criminals. They often serve as human test-subjects with anomalies, be it on facilities or in the field. Other groups and civilian organizations see this usually as a human-rights violation, though the Foundation sees this as necessary. In older canon, Class-D Personnel were automatically terminated after 30 days of employment; in newer canon they are often given Class B amnesiac drugs instead at the discretion of security and medical staff. In some cases when the Foundation is running out of D-Class and none of death row prisoners are available, the Foundation may enable Protocol 12, which recruits Class-D personnel from other prison populations, refugee populations, or in extreme cases civilian sources.
The Foundation also employs more mundane staff such as communication specialists, kitchen staff, accounting, archives, janitorial staff and electricians, who do not work direct with anomalies, but are vital in day-to-day operations.
While literally thousands of SCPs have been contained by the Foundation, there are several notable ones that are popularly associated with the Foundation. It should be noted that all of these SCPs are contained by the Foundation and are not affiliated with the Foundation's personnel.
In the SCP Foundation, the SCPs are categorized by differed classes, which varies based on the SCPs ease of containment. Most notable are the Safe, Euclid and Keter classes, but there are more in the Foundation:
- Safe - SCPs which are easily contained by the Foundation. These SCPs ultimately cannot escape containment of their own accord, and are not considered a threat by the Foundation unless specifically used in a threatening manner. Safe classification does not necessarily mean that the SCP in question is not dangerous, just that it is easily contained.
- Euclid - SCPs that require resources to remain contained. Most Euclid SCPs are difficult to understand, and oftentimes unpredictable. Their danger is greater than Safe class SCPs.
- Keter - SCPs that are extremely difficult to contain in the facility. Though Keter classification refers solely to the difficulty of containment and does not necessarily mean that the SCP in question is dangerous, most of the time, Keter SCPs are considered to be extremely dangerous and hostile, and can pose a threat to the world or universe at large. The procedures of these SCPs are very complex.
- Thaumiel - SCPs used by the Foundation to assist in efforts of containing and/or countering other SCPs. These SCPs are some of the most well kept secrets of the Foundation.
- Archon - SCPs that the Foundation believes should not be contained due to the potential damage that could be caused by containing them.
- Apollyon - SCPs which are near impossible to contain by the Foundation. These SCPs are considered to be one of the most threatening SCP classifications of all, and are threats on global or cosmic scales.
- Neutralized - SCPs that, as the name suggests, SCPs which are deceased, destroyed, or otherwise no longer functional.
- Explained - SCPs whose anomalous properties have been explained or debunked, and most often do not pose a threat.
- Decommissioned - Terminated SCPs rejected by the Foundation.

- SCP-682: An indestructible reptilian monster with a hatred for humanity and a desire for all of it to be wiped out.
SCP-001 is a title given to a mysterious anonymous SCP in the SCP Foundation. What is interesting about this SCP is that there isn't an official SCP titled SCP-001. Only proposals exist for SCP-001, which have been listed on the foundation's site. According to the site, one, many or all of the SCPs proposed may or may not be the real identity of SCP-001. There have been over 30 proposals dedicated to the SCP-001 title, and the foundation also implements that SCP-001 is considered to be the biggest secret of the foundation, which has been blocked for everyone to get access to top secret information about SCP-001.
The SCP Foundation employs thousands of people such as researchers, agents, and guards. The work these individuals perform is often morally controversial in nature (such as D-Class Personnel and Procedure 110-Montauk); however, the work is always meant to protect mankind and preserve normality.
Persons of Interest
Besides SCPs, the Foundation also holds record of Persons of Interest (PoI), who are either anomalous or connected to it.
Interestingly enough, the SCP Foundation exists world-wide, and SCP Foundation is on various languages displayed on the internet as their own Branches. If enough English SCP's get translated onto another language, and new unexisting SCP's get made on a different language, it escalates in a new Branch being made on that exact language. Currently 13 official and 4 unofficial Branches exist in the SCP Foundation:
On the Villains wiki, International SCP's exist such as SCP-025-FR, SCP-060-FR and SCP-015-IT.
