SCP-682: Hard-To-Destroy Lizard


Item #: SCP-682


Object Class: Keter


SCP-682, shortly after escaping containment, still recovering from acid immersion

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-682 must be destroyed as soon as possible. At this time, no means available to SCP teams are capable of destroying SCP-682, only able to cause massive physical damage. SCP-682 should be contained within a 5 m x 5 m x 5 m chamber with 25 cm reinforced acid - resistant steel plate lining all inside surfaces. The containment chamber should be filled with hydrochloric acid is submerged and incapacitated. Any attempts of SCP-682 to move, speak, or breach containment should be reacted quickly and with full force as called for by the circumstances.


Personnel are forbidden to speak to SCP-682, for fear of provoking a rage - state. All unauthorized personnel attempting to communicate to SCP-682 will be restrained and removed by force.


Due to its frequent attempts at containment breach, difficulty of containment and incapacitation, and high threat of Foundation Exposure, SCP-682 is to be contained at site [REDACTED]. The Foundation will use the best of its resources to maintain all land within fifty (50) kilometers clear of human development.


Description: SCP-682 is a large, vaguely reptile - like creature of unknown origin. It appears to be extremely intelligent, and was observed to engage in conversation with SCP-079 during their limited time of exposure. SCP-682 appears to have a hatred of all life, which has been expressed in several interviews during containment. (See Addendum 682-B)


SCP-682 has always been observed to have extremely high strength, speed, and reflexes, though exact levels vary with its form. SCP-682's physical body grows and changes very quickly, growing or decreasing in size as it consumes or sheds material. SCP-682 gains energy from anything it ingests, organic or inorganic. Digestion seems to be aided by a set of filtering gills inside of SCP-682's nostrils, which are able to remove usable matter from any liquid solution, enabling it to constantly regenerate from the acid it is contained in. SCP-682's regenerative capabilities and resilience are staggering, and SCP-682 has been seen moving and speaking with its body 87% destroyed or rotted.


In case of containment breach, SCP-682 is to be tracked and re-captured by all available Mobile Task Forces, and no teams fewer than seven (7) members are cleared to engage it. To date (██/██/████), attempted breaches have numbered at seventeen (17), while successful breaches have numbered at six (6).

Addendum 682-B: Portion of recorded transcript of [REDACTED].

Dr. █████: Now, why did you kill those farmers?


SCP-682: (No verbal communication)


Dr. █████: If you don't talk now, we will remove you from this attempt and place back into–


SCP-682: (Incomprehensible)


Dr. █████: Pardon? (Motions to move microphone closer)


SCP-682: (Incomprehensible)


Dr. █████: Speak up. (To personnel D-085) Move the mic up closer.


SCP-682: ...they were (Incomprehensible)...


Dr. █████: (To personnel D-085) That microphone has only so much to gain, move it closer to it!


Personnel D-085: His throat's messed up, man! Look at it! He ain't talking– (Gasps and screams)


SCP-682: (Appearing to assault Personnel D-085's body) ...they were...disgusting...


Dr. █████: (Retreats from the room)


<End Log>

Addendum 682-E: Termination Options:


Log of event 68-E18: Dr. █████ attempts to use SCP-409 on SCP-682. General ████, General ████████, and Dr. ██████████ observing.


0400: Exposure. SCP-682 began to tear at the point of contact, causing massive trauma to the area. SCP-682 requests several times to know what it has been exposed to.


0800: Crystallization begins, spreading much slower than normal.


1200: SCP-682 shows signs of extreme pain, and begins having seizures.


1300: Crystallization stops at 62% conversion. Crystallized area explodes, causing massive physical trauma to SCP-682.


1400: SCP-682 recovers from exposure, despite the loss of limbs and organs. SCP-682 begins regeneration, stating that it will attempt to kill and consume all staff involved in Event 682-E18.


SCP-682 appears to now be immune to SCP-409. Use of other SCP items to terminate SCP-682 must now first be tested on samples of SCP-682 before full scale testing.


In accordance to Dr. ███████'s recommendations (see Document 27b-6), Dr. ██████ and Dr. ████████ have requested permission to attempt the termination of SCP-682 using SCP-689. The request is currently pending for approval from the ████████.


It has also been suggested by Dr. Gears to use SCP-182 in an attempt to communicate with SCP-682. SCP-182 has expressed reluctance, and refuses to enter the containment center of SCP-682, if it all possible.

Addendum 682-F: Termination Log


Experiment Log T-98816 - OC108/682

Cross-SCP Termination Testing for SCP-682


Due to the highly aggressive, adaptive, and intelligent nature of SCP-682, termination testing has been ordered, with clearance of O5 Command. With major concerns raised about possible developed immunities (due to the failure of SCP-409) and possible adaptations, all tests must be carried out on tissue samples taken from SCP-682. This step may be bypassed only by O5 Cammand order.

Item #: SCP-017

  • Tissue Test Record: Sample "swallowed" by SCP-017 without incident.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 was exposed to SCP-017. SCP-682 issues several sounds at extremely high volume, damaging several recording devices. Sound extends across several wavelengths, reported as "the most god-awful roar" by staff. SCP-017 appears to stumble, then return to a far corner of the containment area. SCP-682 attempts to break containment, was suppressed by Agents, and then removed. SCP-682 states, "You foul bags of tissue; you don't [DATA EXPUNGED]"

Notes: It is unclear if SCP-682 somehow damaged SCP-017, or communicated with it. Analysis of the recorded sound is ongoing.

Item #: SCP-063

  • Tissue Test Record: Sample eradicated. No traces above molecular level remain.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-063 was refitted to the end of a rotary arm, which was deployed into 682's enclosure. Initial approach proves partially successful, with SCP-682 losing more than 20% body weight before regeneration overtakes the destruction process. Newly regrown tissues are not vulnerable to SCP-063's eradication effect: 682 destroys the deployment arm and 063 digs a hole through the enclosure's ground, where it is later recovered. 682 succeeds in extending a long prehensile limb through the hole and maiming two security personnel before containment is reestablished.

Hypothesis: 682 is not bound to base Earth biological chemistry and can adapt itself to be 'organic' or 'inorganic' as necessary. Some of the boys in the lab are arguing whether we can even classify it as 'living', at least as we understand life. This worries me, because an unliving, undying intelligent monster... well, that's where you start getting sacrifices in your name. – Dr. Zara

Item #: SCP-162

  • Tissue Test Record: Sample tangled without incident.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 was exposed to SCP-162. SCP-682 begins thrashing violently, emitting several roaring sounds and issuing profanity directed at testing staff. SCP-682 becomes entangled with SCP-162, primarily in the lower body, head, and left forelimb. Entangled areas undergo massive trauma due to SCP-682's thrashing. After four minutes of continued exposure, SCP-682 lunges away from SCP-162, severing its lower jaw and left hind limb, and causing serious tissue damage to many areas of its body. SCP-162 remains attached to the left forelimb of SCP-682. SCP-682 breaks containment, using SCP-162 against several agents, staff, and researchers, resulting in eleven deaths and eighty-six injuries. Forelimb and SCP-162 removed from SCP-682 during re-establishment of containment. Two additional deaths occurred during the recontainment of SCP-162.

Note: General XXXXX has requested that Mr. Noaqiyeum and the members of the staff involved with the approval of this test report to Site Command for a disciplinary hearing.

Item #: SCP-123

  • Tissue Test Record: Tissue sample absorbed by the core.

  • Termination Test Record: Test canceled after review of testing done between SCP-162 and SCP-682. The potential issues arising from SCP-682 gaining control of SCP-123 are too great at this time. Review of this proposal will be made if SCP-682 is totally incapacitated by some means, with no potential of escape or sudden adaptation.

Item #: SCP-061

  • Tissue Test Record: Overwritten by O5-Command.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 was exposed to SCP-061. SCP-682 enters a "relaxed" state consistent with SCP-061 exposure. SCP-682 is given the command "lie down". SCP-682 remains unresponsive. Command repeated twice before SCP-682 lowers itself to the ground. Movements noted to be very sluggish and jerky. SCP-682 is given the command "roll onto your back". SCP-682 unresponsive. Command repeated three times. SCP-682 shudders several times, partially rolling over before returning to former position. Command repeated six times. SCP-682 appears to undergo a violent seizure, partially rising before collapsing to the floor. SCP-682 given the command "stand up". SCP-682 rapidly rises and breaches containment. SCP-682 ignores all commands given to it. Several agents and staff respond to re-establish containment. SCP-682 emits a high pitch "screech". All human beings in a fifteen-meter radius suddenly enter the "relaxed" state consistent with SCP-061 exposure. SCP-682 consumes several members of staff before being recontained by specially equipped Emergency Response Teams. "Sonic Stun" adaptation lost from SCP-682 after two weeks.

Note: Study into how SCP-682 integrated SCP-061 into its biology is ongoing.

Item #: SCP-173

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A, overridden by O5 Command.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 introduced to containment area of SCP-173. SCP-682 makes several screeching noises and quickly presses against the wall farthest from SCP-173, staring at it the entire time. SCP-682 continues to stare at SCP-173 without pause for six hours. Agents equipped with large caliber sniper rifles dispatched and shot out the eyes of SCP-682, at the same time stopping all observation of SCP-173 and SCP-682.

After resuming observation, SCP-682 is shown to be on the floor, with several injuries around

its head, neck, and legs. SCP-173 is seen to have tissue of SCP-682 on its "hands".

SCP-682 rapidly regenerates damage and moves to a different wall, developing several sets

of eyes on various parts of its body, many covered by thick, clear "caps" of armored

carapace. SCP-682 maintains observation of SCP-173 for an additional twelve hours,

despite additional efforts by agents and Foundation staff. SCP-682 is allowed to exit

containment area and recaptured in temporary containment.


Notes: After review, it appears SCP-173 was unable to deal lethal damage to SCP-682 due to a major difference in physical size. A possible repeat of this test may be made if SCP-682 is damaged enough to reduce its physical mass to a level equal with SCP-173.

Item #: SCP-173 with Rapid Application of High Precision Blades

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A, overridden by O5-2

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 was moved to a modified test chamber with slits for blades positioned in a regular pattern on the walls. SCP-173 was moved to SCP-682's containment chamber. The tool successfully divided SCP-682 into approximately 12,000 cubes as that of prior testing. SCP-173 was sliced into unsymmetrical pieces given that the blades were set for the reptile's flesh. Vacuum systems began relocating cubes into individual containment cells. 80 seconds after initial incisions were made, 43% of SCP-682's biomass had been removed. At this time, vacuum systems experienced spontaneous failures. Upon inspection of vacuum equipment, D-10056 and D-10278 were attached and killed by a gelatin-like substance comprised of liquefied SCP-682 tissue. D-10148 turned his sight to the murder, giving SCP-173 time to reconstruct and break D-10148's neck from behind.

The emergency incineration troubleshooted. SCP-173 smashed the living tissues into the

wall. More tissue samples mutated, crowded SCP-173, and shattering its head and torso

while it continued to smash the samples against the wall. SCP-682 was able to use non-

combative tissues to combine and form a smaller version of himself measuring approximately

1.65 meters in height and 3 meters in length. SCP-682 stared at SCP-173. A personnel

was ordered to shoot SCP-682 in the eyes. SCP-173 succeeded in killing the mutated skin

tissues while SCP-682 was regenerating. SCP-682 finished regenerating and continued to

stare at SCP-173 for 17 hours. SCP-682 was then sedated and was commissioned back to

its containment cell. During the attempt to transfer SCP-173, a short power outage occurred,

killing all nearby personnel and causing a site-wide containment breach.


Notes: "Before anything else, I just want to say that this test was an absolute success. We are able to figure out a way to shrink SCP-682 into a more containable item. I hold no responsibility regarding the power outage that caused a massive containment breach in Site-XX, nor to the thousands of people killed in [DATA REDACTED] just outside the base." - Dr. Shenron


"A recent investigation was held in Site-XX and was found that the electrical generator chamber was burned due to your emergency incinerator troubleshooting, causing the power outage. Dr. Shenron, you are relieved of your duty. Please proceed to your Site Director for your amnestic intake." - O5-2

Item #: SCP-053

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A, overridden by O5 Command.

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 introduced to SCP-053's containment area. SCP-682 appears to be very confused and shows no sign of being affected by SCP-053. SCP-053 appears to be afraid of SCP-682 and hides behind a chair in her containment area. SCP-682 lowers itself to the ground, resting its head on the floor. SCP-053 approaches SCP-682 and after several seconds of hesitation, briefly touches SCP-682 before rapidly returning to her hiding place. SCP-682 does not react in any way. SCP-053 approaches SCP-682 and pats its head, causing it to exhale through its forward nostrils. SCP-053 claps and hops in place several times before embracing the head of SCP-682. For the remainder of the testing period, SCP-682 appears to be in a very docile state, with only two low level escape attempts being made. SCP-053 is observed to bring toys and other items to SCP-682 and makes several drawings on its forward carapace with crayons.

Staff entering at the end of the test phase are immediately attacked by SCP-682, resulting in

two deaths and five injuries. SCP-682 contained and moved to separate containment unit.

SCP-053 observed crying for several minutes after SCP-682 is removed.


Notes: The reaction of SCP-682 is notable for several reasons. First, it is one of the few incidents where SCP-682 has come in contact with biological tissue and not entered a "rage" state. Second, it has raised questions as to the physical make-up and composition of SCP-053 in regards to the lack of response of SCP-682. Third, it has provided a possible solution to long-term containment. However, approval for the mutual containment of two highly dangerous SCP items in a single containment unit is not likely.

Item: Guest Researcher Dr. W

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A

  • Termination Test Record: Subject tossed into containment facility after subject was caught introducing regular children to SCP-682. Subject screamed in terror and pounded on the door to the test facility, begging to be let out. SCP-682 devoured it messily three minutes after being introduced.

Notes: Fucking sadistic asshole. I've got no sympathy for that moron whatsoever. Introducing children to this fucking monster? What the hell... - Assistant Director Clef

Item: Dr. Clef

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A

  • Termination Test Record: SCP-682 introduced to testing area. Dr. Clef introduced to testing area. Dr. Clef and SCP-682 stare at each other for approximately three minutes. Dr. Clef slowly backs out of the testing area as SCP-682 continues to stare. Dr. Clef attempts to open door of testing area. Door of testing area determined to be locked. Dr. Clef reportedly uses several loud expletives and then attaches an unknown device to the door, keeping his eyes on SCP-682 the whole time. SCP-682 continues to stare. Dr. Clef detonates a small plastic explosive charge on the door, causing a containment breach. SCP-682 continues to stare. Dr. Clef engages secondary emergency lockdown doors and declares a partial containment situation. SCP-682 does not react. Dr. Clef proceeds to experiment observation center.

Item: High altitude impact

  • Tissue Test Record: Denied by O5-█

  • Termination Test Record: Testing denied by O5-█

Notes: Seriously? I mean...seriously? Drop it out of an aircraft and let it fall... Who in the [DATA EXPUNGED]

Item: 60 MT thermonuclear bomb

  • Tissue Test Record: N/A

  • Termination Test Record: Testing denied by O5-█

Notes: One would think that putting SCP-682 in the epicenter of an explosion that can cause third-degree burns at a distance of 300 km is a good idea, but as long as there are odds of survival we simply cannot go through with it. Yes, it's a goddamn nuke, but if 682 survives and adapts we'd be boned beyond belief. - O5-█
