SCP-4885 is an antagonist in the SCP mythos. It is a monstrous serial killer which takes the form of Wally/Waldo from the Where's Wally/Where's Waldo? puzzle books and chases down and kills anyone who knows its location, similar to SCP-096.
As previously mentioned, SCP-4885 takes the appearance of Wally/Waldo, meaning that it wears a red and white striped shirt, a red and white bobble hat, jeans and black spectacles. However, it also has much paler skin and no eyes.
SCP-4885 generally spends its time walking round whatever area it's in looking for people to kill. If somebody discovers its location, SCP-4885 runs into the nearest wall before teleporting inside the person, reaching up through their esophagus and grabbing them by the chin. It then pulls itself up out of their mouth, destroying their internal organs and spine, and kills anybody in the vicinity. Once this is done, SCP-4885 will transform the corpses so that they are covered in images similar to those from the books. These corpses are known as SCP-4885-1. If the location of an SCP-4885-1 instance is discovered, the same response from SCP-4885 will be triggered.
If the victim is close enough to SCP-4885 that they actually see it, then it will jump down their throat and crawl through their body before exiting through their pelvis. This produces the same effect as teleporting inside them, up to and including the transformation into SCP-4885-1. To do this, SCP-4885 will reduce its skin and muscles to the consistency of a malleable solid and if necessary can dislocate and relocate any of its joints at will.
SCP-4885 will only attack people if they know its exact location. A vague location such as "Planet Earth", "China" or "Location i" will not trigger its effect.
SCP-4885 was first discovered when the SCP Foundation deployed Mobile Task Force Chi-19 to recover a likely related anomaly - a pair of spectacles which killed the user and covered their body in pictures from the Where's Wally/Where's Waldo? series. Upon arriving at the wooden cabin where the anomaly was located, MTF Chi-19 found an image of SCP-4885 drawn on the wall next to the words "WALDO FOUND MOMMY". MTF Chi-19 went on to recover the anomaly they were looking for from the bathroom before finding a message reading "The basement. The corpses from a child's book are in the basement. He is there too." SCP-4885 then teleported into the body of one of the MTF agents before crawling out his mouth, killing him. It proceeded to kill the rest of the team, but not before one of them contacted a nearby site to ask for help, in the process revealing their location.
After killing MTF Chi-19, SCP-4885 teleported to the nearby site and killed everyone there. An attempt to figure out what happened to the site lead to the discovery of SCP-4885's presence, continuing the cycle. Eventually the Foundation learned enough about SCP-4885 for Lead Researcher Andrew Pent to come up with a solution: he established a site known as "Location i", the location of which only he knew. He then exiled himself to the site and used drones to round up all instances of SCP-4885-1 and drop them off at Location i. SCP-4885 appeared and killed him, but became trapped inside Location i as nobody else knew where it was. Several decoy sites were created in order to prevent anybody from discovering SCP-4885's true location.
Due to the nature of Location i, the Foundation can only theorize that SCP-4885 is still imprisoned.
