Item #: XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-X is to be stored in a standard size —soundproof— (See Incident Log SCP-XXXX-1 for details) reinforced concrete cell in Site 57. Weapons, as well as items resembling weapons, are forbidden in SCP-X's containment cell, unless used for tests approved by Level 3 staff. Sealed metal crates that can be locked/unlocked via remote access are to be used when transporting SCP-X for both testing and relocation.

In the event of a containment breach, unarmed site security are to approach SCP-X and carry it back to its containment. Armed personnel are advised to avoid confronting SCP-X under normal circumstances.

Description: SCP-X is a cube shaped automaton composed of reinforced steel and aluminum, measuring at about 1m x 1m x 1m. Concave speakers of various sizes are found scattered across its main body, totaling to 24. The dust caps of these speakers house camera lenses, some of which have been shattered or damaged, that track movement within an estimated 25m range of detection. Its chassis shows visible signs of damage, including those created from gunshots. The presumed front side of SCP-X has a rectangular opening, and is visibly stained with various drip marks and splashes of a dried, black substance. The sides of its body holds holes (2 centered vertical slits and 4 circular holes found on its base) that houses its limbs when deactivated. The top of SCP-X holds a compartment that opens when SCP-X is ready to deposit an item. This compartment can be opened manually while SCP-X is deactivated, revealing a pool of pitch black liquid. All attempts to detect a bottom to this pool have failed thus far. On the bottom of SCP-X lays a set of imprinted numbers and letters arranged as “CU-378” and the words “Only through our careful hands will the diseased be disarmed of their tools of transmission. Only when all obscenity has been excised will this world know peace”.

Under normal circumstances, SCP-X will remain deactivated, laying stationary with its limbs hidden, and is safe to approach, touch and carry, provided none of its prerequisites are met. While active, SCP-X will extend its mechanical limbs from the sides of its body; 2 arms and 4 mechanical, arachnid-like legs, standing at approximately 1.5m. Its right arm is equipped with a fully articulate metal hand comprising of four fingers, while its left arm is equipped with a pair of visibly worn out and lightly rusted shears. These shears have shown to be adept at cutting through most materials despite their wear.

SCP-X will activate when firearms, violence, blood/visible injuries and/or nudity are within its visual range. Upon spotting one or more of these requisites, SCP-X will begin to move towards the offending target to censor/confiscate it. When approaching firearms, explosives, and objects recently used for violence, SCP-XXXX will pick the item up and open its compartment to deposit the object. Objects too large to fit into this space will first be cut into evenly spaced pieces by SCP-XXXXs left arm before they’re deposited individually.

If a living being is wielding something perceived as a weapon within SCP-Xs vision, SCP-X will approach the subject and attempt to disarm them. Heavy resistance towards SCP-Xs attempt to confiscate the weapon will result in an attempt to amputate the subjects limb, typically towards the arms that is wielding the offending weapon. Further resistance will result another amputation towards the remaining limb, continuing until the subject is incapacitated and unable to provide resistance. When assaulted either physically or fired at with firearms, SCP-X will give chase to its attacker in an attempt to sever the offending limb, not stopping until it has either severed the desired limb off or if the subject is brought far enough away from SCP-Xs detection range to deactivate. Severed limbs and extremities are then deposited into its compartment. Limbs too large to fit will be cut into smaller segments before they're deposited.

When in the visual vicinity of blood, visible injuries and nudity, SCP-XXXX will face towards its target and begin spewing a thick, black substance at the offender from its rectangular opening. Composition of this substance appears to be made up from a combination of tar, rubber, a variety of cyanoacrylate adhesives and a material not found in the Foundations expanded periodic tables. This substance will absorb liquids while it is still fresh, before hardening over the span of 1 minute. When completely dried over flat surfaces, this substance can be peeled off with relative ease.

However, observations on those who have made skin contact with this substance have shown that the substance will fill into the skin pores, settling down on the deepest layers of the dermis. It is not recommended to peel the substance when treating subjects who have made skin contact as this typically leads to the coated skin being torn off as well. Treating victims who have been coated by this substance has proven to be extremely difficult due its impenetrable nature when completely hardened, and as such, there are currently no known ways to safely removed this substance off of living beings.

It has been observed that SCP-X appears to put priority in confiscating weaponry over chasing attackers, censoring nudity, and censoring blood/injuries. Once all offensive material in the area has been removed, SCP-X will retract its limbs and deactivate.

Additionally, SCP-X will censor spoken expletives via a "bleep" sound effect the moment an expletive is spoken inside of its radius of detection, estimated to be 15.2m. This effect is achieved with most languages, with the word exceptions to this case being German, French and all Asian languages. The sound effect varies in volume depending on the volume of the spoken word, the distance between SCP-X and the sound, and any obstructions in the way. Whether or not the sound can actually be heard by SCP-X does not seem to affect its reaction, which can be provoked whether SCP-X is active or not and has no effect on triggering its activation.

SCP-X was brought to Foundation attention when police dispatch in Newark, New Jersey reported a mechanical anomaly running between the crossfire of local SWAT police and drug traffickers in Port-Newark. 7 casualties were inflicted between both parties before SCP-X deactivated inside of a nearby warehouse, after it had given chase to a fleeing survivor of the attack. All witnesses and survivors were given Class-A amnestics shortly after retrieval was completed.


Incident log SCP-XXXX-1: On ██/██/████, security cameras captured Dr. ████ and Dr. ███████ walking side to side in the hallway outside of SCP-Xs containment, having a discussion together.

Dr.████: So I walk in, right? Hell of a day, got my supervisor clawing for my neck over the explosion earlier, and all I can think about is having a good lunch before I see him. So I walk in the lounge, and what the hell do I see? Him, eating my lunch, again! And he’s looking right at me while doing it too, with that greasy triple chin of his smiling at me!
Dr. ███████: I’ve told you at least three different times now; tell your supervisor about it! You’re letting him get to you when you can easily just get him reprimanded or even transferred somewhere else, but instead you’re just letting it happen because you can’t swallow your pride for just a minute.
Dr.████: Pride? I haven’t done anything about this because I have too much pride! I haven’t done anything about this because I had faith in my fellow co-workers that they’d, oh I don’t know, act like grown adults instead of petty children! But no! Everyone here but us wants to act like (Censored)

SCP-X then emitted a bleep sound effect measuring at approximately 148Db, circumventing its sound proofed containment. Glass and ceramic objects, particularly in the Sites right wing, were shattered. 46 site members were treated for a variety of hearing conditions afterwards. Dr.████ and Dr. ███████ were rendered permanently deaf from the incident. SCP-X containment has been changed into the Sites isolated containment wing following Dr. Gehrens request. Sound proofed walls are to be replaced with standard reinforced concrete. Additionally, several signs prohibiting profanity are to be set up in the hallways leading to SCP-Xs containment.

Incident log SCP-XXXX-2:
On ██/██/██, SCP-X began emitting a radio broadcasts during test preparations

To date, all attempts to identify the source of the broadcast as well as the identity of the speakers have failed. By the request of Dr. Langner, microphones have been outfitted inside of SCP-Xs containment for the purpose of recording and analyzing further broadcasts emitted.

Immediately after this broadcast ended, SCP-X suddenly activated without warning and attempted to flee past D-1049, running outside it’s containment room and towards the accompanying hallways exit. Hallway door was lock before a full breach was achieved, leaving both D-1049 and SCP-X locked together for 7 minutes before site security could safely re-contain SCP-X. Camera footage inside the hall had recorded SCP-X slamming itself against the locked door for several minutes before shifting its attention towards D-1049, who had pleaded at a security camera for their release, alerting SCP-X to their presence and causing it to give chase off camera. Security then entered the hallway and coaxed SCP-X back to its containment by throwing their sidearms back inside its containment cell, locking the door behind it. D-1049 was found incapacitated from an incomplete cut found on their ankle, stopping halfway down the shin, and was later treated for heavy lacerations across the body, but is ultimately expected to make a full recovery. To date, SCP-X has not deactivated and remains hostile to all personnel who approach its containment. SCP-X has been reclassified to Euclid under Site Director █████ order.
