"Tick tock", the cuckoo clock ticks.
"Cuckoo", the bird inside sings.
Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock.
As ticks the time, so ticks your heart.
May you live long as you hear its song.
Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock.
Listen close, for when it stops,
the hatchling comes out of its home.
Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick-
Did you hear it? Did it stop?
My child, it meant your time was up.
~ A German nursery rhyme on an unknown figure, assumingly SCP-4975.

SCP-4975, also referred to as Time's Up, is an antagonist in the SCP mythos. It is an Euclid-class object classification under the SCP Foundation's containment. It is capable of breaching containment, but appears in it's containment cell disabled when attacking prey. It's classification to Keter-class is currently pending.


SCP-4975's containment cell is a 4x by 4x cell comprised of steel barrier. Surveillance is to be monitored from time-to-time, no human is allowed to interact with the beast, and any suspicious activity is to be reported to the SCP Foundation for further notice.

When attacking, it will completely evaporate behind any solid material or in close range to the target. It will then produce a clicking noise by moving its vertebrae, being able to stalk its target for several months. Only the victim to SCP-4975 can hear the producing clicking-noise. Once it stops, it proceeds to kill its target, which is does through either beating the victim to death or tearing them apart. When the prey is killed, SCP-4975 will begin devouring them as a food source.

SCP-4975 was discovered in folk tales in Germany, seen in some images and photos as a humanoid, beaked figure seen attacking numerous people as far back as the sixteenth century. In a accident residing from the Black Forest in Germany, a man has been hearing ticking noises, he believed he was being stalked or it was a cruel prank. Foundation Agents took the man into custody, and when they took him to the last place he had heard the clicking noises, the man had pointed a pale-tree, but the foundation agents did not notice anything suspicious. Later, the man was attacked by invisibly by SCP-4975, and while the Foundation Agents had tried to pull the creature off, but they were forced to terminate the man following SCP-4975 beginning to attack. Camera surveillance shows during this attack that SCP-4975 was frozen still in it's containment chamber.


SCP-4975 has sneaky, supervised, and scurry characteristics, almost suddenly stalking their prey for months.


SCP-4975 is a gray bird-like creature with a sharp beak, a humanoid body, spider-like slim arms, a curved stomach, thin, long legs, and a tail.



  • There exists an "Easter egg" on SCP-4975's page on the SCP Wiki, with audio of a ticking clock playing after two minutes on the page. This ticking stops sometime later without warning, simulating what happens when the beast is ready to attack.
