The SCP Foundation stands for Secure, Contain and Protect. It’s chocked full of crowd-sourced entries regarding objects and strange entities that contravene natural law (Source).
The Funniest SCP memes
One of the most well-known SCPs is SCP-173, which owes at least some of its fame to the weeping angels of the sci-fi television show Doctor Who. SCP-173 kills people when line of sight is broken i.e., when people blink or stop looking at it.
First Person Encounter
In general, the simple but interesting SCPs are the ones that fuse well with many other meme formats. Hardcore SCP fans usually lean more towards discussion and speculative writing.
It’s easy to see why this SCP remains a fan favorite, isn’t it? We know; we’re hilarious.
The Game of SCP-173
SCP-682 is another famous SCP; a huge, vaguely reptilian creature that’s intelligent, highly destructive and indestructible. SCP-682 is famous in the wiki for all the reports of the Foundation trying to destroy it, only for SCP-682 to adapt and change, coming back stronger.
SCP-682 has attained so much popularity and attention that it’s become a running joke of sorts to throw any new destructive SCP at SCP-682 to see what happens.
The Foundation Knows, It Just Can’t Do Much About It
SCP-682 is also notorious for trying to escape and break its containment cells. It has been described as a lizard-like dragon, with many other grisly details about its appearance.
SCP-049 is a creature that resembles a medieval plague doctor and becomes exceedingly violent and hostile when in presence of “pestilence” or people it feels are infected with “pestilence”.
You Dare Cough Near Me?
SCP-049 regularly speaks of “curing” people, when in reality it usually means that the person or offending creature is gotten rid of or killed.
All You People Need Curing
The background and operations of the Foundation itself are also intensely discussed, written and speculated about. It’s been called everything from the “real Illuminati” to the “saviours of human life as we know it”. The Foundation has massive resources and power, surveilling the world for any new anomaly or creature, capturing it and studying it. The Foundation’s authority is thought to be “above all other human government bodies”, as, without the Foundation operating without hindrance, there would be no humans to govern, anyway.
Foundation Property, No Questions Allowed
But when dealing with potentially world-ending and paradox-producing creatures, objects and phenomena, it can get quite hard to be consistent. Even with yourself.
We’re The Good Guys, Right ?…
In order to maintain an aura of secrecy and covertness, a lot of articles on the SCP website have “redacted” parts that have been blacked out. The tone of the website is generally scientific, instructional and archival.
Redacted or Highlighted?
Good Ol’ [Data Expunged]
SCP entries can be hard to think of, especially with somewhat strict requirements by the wiki and a huge range of SCPs already thought of and written about.
Some SCPs are excellently written, with lots of information and various documents, images, scientific experiments, logs and stories weaved into the entry.
Suit Up, We’re Goin In
Some SCPs are downright hilarious and many people are of the opinion that these SCPs shouldn’t be contained, but rather set free.
An example of this is SCP-504, an SCP that looks and acts just like a regular tomato. However, when these tomatoes are mature and ripe, if any verbal attempt at poor or lame humor is made within hearing range of SCP-504, it will instantly accelerate towards the source of the sound at over 100 miles per hour.
Don’t Do It, Dad!Maybe superfast killer tomatoes are what we need around the world to finally improve people’s sense of humor.
Free The Tomatoes!
But sometimes, SCPs can be pretty scary and horrible. SCP-993 is a children’s television program titled “Bobble the Clown” that only children can watch without blacking out. The show and Bobble instruct and encourage horrible things like murder, cannibalism, torture, etc. These things become ingrained in the subject’s mind, sometimes causing madness.
It’s Its Favorite
This crossover meme clearly shows SCP’s reach. Even Pennywise, from “It”, appears to be a fan of certain gruesome SCPs.
SCP-021 is a parasite in the form of a large, serpentine dragon tattoo that lives in human skin and feeds exclusively on pigments. SCP-021 strongly prefers tattoo pigments but will eat melanin pigments if no tattoos are present or given to it for nourishment.

Don’t Like Tattoos, But I Miss My Skin
SCP memes can get pretty deep, and sometimes even border on the gloomy and deeply melancholic. Some of our favorites include SCP-4999, who only appears to people who are alone and are going to die within 20 minutes and gives them a cigarette to smoke if they want it. SCP-4999 then just sits next to them, offering some comfort in the form of company before death.
But… it was just a cold…
Never Alone, Not At The End
Sometimes, the SCP database puts two different SCPs together, to see what transpires between the two. A particularly famous instance of this was the introduction of SCP-999 to SCP-682.
SCP-999 is essentially a large, harmless slimeball that’s the consistency of peanut butter. It has the temperament and attitude of an incredibly happy and friendly dog, trying to hug and tickle whoever approaches it. SCP-999 eats candy like an amoeba and releases pleasant smells that differ according to the likes of the person it’s interacting with.
According to the SCP wiki, the introduction of SCP-999 to SCP-682 resulted in the normally destructive and evil SCP-682 becoming “happy” and “laughing”. SCP-682 and SCP-999 then engaged in a “tickle-fight” until SCP-682 fell asleep.
SCP-999’s wholesomeness seemed to overwhelm not just SCP-682, but the fanbase too, generating memes galore.
The Slimy Boi Wins
A lot of users loved the interaction and outcome of SCP-682’s unstoppable and brutal nature being brought to heel by sheer cuteness and warmth, of all things.
From Death Lizard to Derp Lizard
The fact that the internet chose happiness, tickles and a cute blob of slime to prevail over nuclear weapons, vile toxins, superheated plasma guns and savage violence gives you some hope in humanity.
The Shining? No, The Tickling!
To this day, the SCP Foundation and its entries continue to be a productive and varied source of memes of all kinds.
This creative wiki, where anyone can submit their writing for a fictional “creature, object or phenomenon” that just doesn’t make sense or fit into the real world, has inspired a huge fan following online. It actively maintains the wiki while developing and screening new entries every day.
”SCP” stands for “Secure Containment Protocol” or “Secure, Contain, Protect”, a trio of words that basically outline the hypothetical objective of the fictional “Foundation”. Each thing in the SCP database usually has a number assigned to it, and memes about the SCP Foundation usually require some familiarity with that specific SCP.
