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.

Behavior and Procedure

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 in a photo or video, 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 fail. SCP-096 will kill victims in ways as to leave no trace of the victim's body, with no evidence of victims bodies ever being found.

After killing its victim SCP-096 will return to its docile state. SCP-096 will then attempt to return to its natural habitat.

Incident 098-1-A


SCP-096 appearing in the Incident.

A researcher in the SCP Foundation created a device to make containing SCP-096 easier, the device failed to result in a containment breach that caused an unknown number of civilian deaths. 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.

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-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 not had not injured SCP-096 but 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.
