Villain Overview

SCP-096, also known as the Shy Guy, is a Euclid-class object contained by the SCP Foundation. It is mainly known for its psychoanalytical appliance and screams.


SCP-096 spends most of its days pacing the eastern wall of its containment chamber, at the exact moment that anyone views SCP-096's face or sees it (directly, or in a photo or video, though artistic renderings have no effect) SCP-096 will hide its face with its hands screaming and crying, showing extreme emotional distress. After one to two minutes, SCP-096 will stand up and begin to run to the person that saw its face. Nothing can impede SCP-096's path to the person who saw SCP-096's face. When SCP-096 reaches its target, it will kill them without failing. SCP-096 will kill victims in an unclear (apparently horrific) way which leaves no trace of the victim's body. After killing its victim, SCP-096 will return to its docile state. SCP-096 will then attempt to return to its natural habitat.

Incident 096-1-A

SCP-096 appearing in the Incident.

A researcher in the SCP Foundation created a device to make containing SCP-096 easier, by identifying and scrambling the image of SCP-096's face. It was tested when SCP-096 entered its agitated state and breached containment, due to a semiprofessional mountaineer who had a picture (taken in the '90s) which captured SCP-096's face far in the background in four pixels evidently noticing the pixelated abnormality - SCP-096's cross-country beeline to reach the mountaineer caused a high number of civilian deaths along the way when more civilians saw its face as it passed. The device failed, apparently due to the wearers' brains receiving one nanosecond of SCP-096's un-scrambled facial image before the image was scrambled. After killing the last of its victims, SCP-096 was recaptured by placing a bag on its head to prevent further viewing of its face.

The researcher was then tasked with terminating SCP-096 at all costs.


SCP-096 appears as a nude, pale-skinned, anorexic humanoid. It stands 2.38 meters tall, and it has little to no muscle mass. Its arms are greatly out of proportion to the rest of its body, measuring 1.5 meters in length.

SCP-096 has no hair anywhere on its body. Its jaw is four times bigger than an average human jaw, and its eyes are completely devoid of pigmentation making them completely white. All other facial features are similar to humans. It is unknown if SCP-096 is blind. SCP-096 also does not show any higher brain functions beyond locating its victims.

In Video-Games

SCP - Containment Breach

In SCP - Containment Breach, SCP-096 appears wandering around the Heavy Containment Zone of the facility crying. When SCP-096's face is looked at, it goes into a stage of emotional stress for 40 seconds before hunting down whoever viewed its face. SCP-096 will run directly to its target and kill them. If the player avoids SCP-096 for long enough, it will instantly storm their position and kill them. It also spawns in a scripted event where it brutally kills a guard who accidentally views its face.

SCP: Secret Laboratory

SCP-096 in SCP: Secret Laboratory.

In the Secret Laboratory, players are able to play as SCP-096, which is considered one of the strongest SCPs in-game. SCP-096 appears to be the fastest SCP in game and has the ability to kill anyone in one hit and break down doors. Once SCP-096's rage has ended, it would sit down for ten seconds until it rages again towards the other living players. As in original, SCP-096 would create noises and cry when sitting. Though when its rage is finished, it would not make any crying sounds.

SCP - Containment Breach (Unity Remake)

As of today, SCP-096 is not added in the game, though it is believed that it will be added when the game is finished somewhere in 2019 or 2020.

  • SCP-096 is a popular character in video game mods and is popularly featured in mods for Minecraft, Roblox, and Garry's Mod, among others.
  • It is said to have been the vessel of a now dead old one/old god that has no soul and is only controlled by the hate energy and is mindless. The only reason it can track people is because it is said have been a trait of the vessel such as humans ability to hear or see. Termination of this vessel is said to occur but at an unknown time in the future, so far human weapons including multiple high power machine guns and an anti-tank missile didn't even make it flinch and it regenerated its flesh back quickly while not having any structural damage.
  • Multiple other means have been attempted such as radiation, electricity, incineration, and cryonics have been attempted and have so far haven't injured SCP-096, but they will activate its rage state temporarily. This includes multiple cross test as well.
  • If he cannot kill a victim, as seen in the case of SCP-682, SCP-106, and SCP-173, it will begin to become docile and cry in the corner.
  • SCP-096 evidently inhabited a snowy mountain range (the location of which is redacted) before the Foundation captured it, and was roaming around during the 1990s.
  • SCP-096 was ranked fourth place in TatsTopVideos' Top 22 Scariest SCPs video.
