rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-4XXX Level 2/4XXX
Object Class: Safe Classified

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard containment locker at Site-107. Personnel may remove SCP-XXXX from containment under controlled circumstances that fall within the guidelines of Ethics Committee Decree 152.C1. Testing conducted with SCP-4XXX must be performed with at least one Level-3 or higher personnel supervising the test's proponent as well as the subject. During testing, SCP-4XXX is to be kept a minimum of one meter away from the test subject.

As individuals subjugated to the anomalous properties of item SCP-XXXX constitute an extension of SCP-4XXX itself, procedural detainment for a period lasting no longer than 24 hours may be instated for the subject and proponent in the aftermath of any exposure to SCP-4XXX. The basis of the personnel's detainment and the length of detainment are at the discretion of the secondary witness to SCP-4XXX testing or any Level-3 or higher personnel expressing concern.


SCP-4XXX is a small ceramic figurine of a stereotypical homeless individual, although it is largely stylized, comical, and painted in bright pastel colors. The figurine is mounted on a cubic oakwood pedestal. A brass plaque, with the phrase “My Little Friend” etched on it. Directly viewing 4XXX invokes heavy feelings of guilt, shame, and regret, and subjects describe experiencing graphic memories of "the worst moments of their lives". SCP-4XXX's effects differ by exposure time, the subject's self-reported moral code, as well as the memories of the subject.

Item History:

SCP-4XXX was discovered in downtown San Diego, California, on 8/14/2019 in a pawnshop that specialized in trading homemade items bought from various wholesalers throughout the country. Attempts have been made to further trace the origin of the object, so far without success.
