"An extremely slender, frail-looking humanoid. It hides its face for a reason. Simply peering at it will induce a state of unstoppable rage, in which it massacres anything around with its immense strength. Running is futile. Don't even peek.

SCP-096 is one of the SCPs in SCP: Secret Laboratory, which will slowly walk in a docile state until it becomes enraged by being hurt or having its face looked at by a human.

Official SCP Wiki Information

"SCP-096 is a humanoid creature measuring approximately 2.38 meters in height. Subject shows very little muscle mass...SCP-096 is normally extremely docile...However, when someone views SCP-096's will enter a stage of considerable emotional distress...Approximately one (1) to two (2) minutes after the first viewing, SCP-096 will begin running to the person who viewed its face (who will from this point on be referred to as SCP-096-1) known material or method can impede SCP-096's seems to have an innate sense of SCP-096-1's location...Upon arriving at SCP-096-1's location, SCP-096 will proceed to kill and [DATA EXPUNGED] SCP-096-1."


SCP-096 begins the game with 1500 HP and 350 Hume Shield. Hume Shield is similar to Artificial HP, but will absorb 100% of the damage SCP-096 takes.

When docile, SCP-096 will constantly cry and can be heard from a distance. However, SCP-096 can hold Right Click on a closed door to lean up against it, causing its crying to become near silent.

SCP-096 will become enraged when looked at or when shot at by humans. Once enraged, SCP-096 will move slower for 6 seconds before gaining its enrage buffs.

Anyone that shot or looked at SCP-096’s face will become a target, players who become targets will be given a distinct audio cue to indicate this. SCP-096’s rage will last for 15 seconds, plus an extra 3 seconds for each additional target, up to a maximum of 30 seconds of rage. Targets are made visible by markers only visible to SCP-096 (targets wearing SCP-268 will still be visible).

Each active target SCP-096 has will increase his Hume Shield by 70. There is no limit to the amount that can be gained.

While enraged SCP-096 can do the following:

  • Jump very high and run incredibly fast.
  • View targets through walls.
  • Perform an AOE attack with Left Click that will instantly kill any targets and deal damage to anyone who got hit by it that wasn't a target.
  • Left Click on doors to destroy them while enraged.
    • Blast gates, Checkpoint doors, Prop doors, gates, and elevator doors cannot be destroyed.
  • Perform a charge attack with Right Click that lasts 0.8s and causes SCP-096 to run at 25 m/s.
    • This attack can be used to jump over large gaps.
    • Humans in the charge's path will be killed.
    • Doors charged at will be destroyed.
    • If SCP-096 charges at a closed gate, they will temporarily force the gate open and go through it.
      • Humans attempting to get past SCP-096 during this will be instantly killed.
      • Other SCPs may go through the temporarily opened gate unharmed.
    • The charge attack has a cooldown after being used. Charging through a gate will force the cooldown to end.

After the rage state ends, SCP-096 begins to calm down and moves slowly for a few seconds. SCP-096 will then enter a short cooldown phase before he can enrage again.

Once SCP-096's rage wears off, his Hume Shield returns to 350. If SCP-096 takes no damage for 10 seconds, its Hume Shield will slowly regenerate at 5 Hume Shield per second.


Previously, SCP-096 would have to be looked at for a certain amount of time before becoming enraged. It did not have the ability to see targets through walls. It was forced to break doors that were closed and was one of the shorter SCPs.
