Top 5 Highest Rated SCP’s

Top 5 Highest Rated SCP’s

August 9, 2019 100 By William Hollis


The SCP Foundation is a terrifying fictional
cornucopia of creepypasta, science fiction horror, and psychological memetic musings. Since its inception in 2008 over on the paranormal
/x/ boards on 4Chan – it has completely captivated us as horror fans for its incredible propensity
to bring together some of the most creative budding minds in horror. We love it – you love it – so let’s take
a look at some of the best of the best in the SCP Foundation. Hello horror fans – and once again, welcome
back to the scariest channel on YouTube, Top 5 Scary Videos. As per usual, I’ll be your horror host Jack
Finch – as we dodge a few memetic kill agents, clear ourselves through the O5 Council and
curiously take a look at the Top 5 Highest Rated SCP’s. For the curious amongst you, that clip was
from Season 1 of Stranger Things – because, come on, what better way to visually represent
the SCP Foundation than with Hawkins Lab. Wait a minute … maybe they were part of
the SCP Foundation all along… Interesting. Kicking off at Number 5 – SCP-055 And conceptually – SCP-055 is so damn interesting
that it’s testament to – wait, sorry, what was I saying again? As a member of the SCP’s Heritage Collection,
as in the OG’s of the entire collection, SCP-055 has been around since the beginning
– yet, still, no one can quite decipher exactly what it is. We’ll give it a go though, before the memetic
agent kicks in. SCP-055 is a Keter class anomalous entity
which is best described as a self keeping secret, or an anti-meme – for all intents
and purposes, it is an entity that shortly after viewing it, no one can remember exactly
what it is. It’s physical appearance, as well as its
nature, behaviour and origins are self-classifying – and after a few minutes of exposure to 055
– all information about it will be forgotten. The real fear behind this one is that it could
be completely and utterly harmless – OR – one of the most terrible possible threats to mankind. SCP-055 is kept in a cement room, surrounded
by a Faraday cage and an automatically locking door – and – wait, sorry. What was I talking about again? Coming in at Number 4 – SCP-087 And this is one of my favourite entries in
the whole of the SCP Foundation – that we’ve managed to cover quite a few times in our
previous lists. Hey, there’s a reason why it’s the 4th
highest rated SCP ever, right? Also known as the Stairway From Hell – SCP-087
is an Euclid class object that is essentially a stairway that goes on and on, forever – well,
maybe – no one has ever found the end. As the record states, SCP-087 is located on
the campus of an unknown university, locked behind a doorway consisting of reinforced
steel with an electro-release lock. On four occasions, the Foundation has sent
D-class personnel on an expedition into SCP-087 – which increasingly yielded more and more
terrifying results. In all cases, each subject has encountered
what is known as SCP-087-1 – which appears as a face with no visible pupils, nostrils
or a mouth. The nature of it is entirely unclear – but
it’s pretty damn horrific. The thing that makes SCP-087 so good, is that
it perfectly captures the fear of the unknown. The Foundation has tried time and time again
to apply the scientific process to this anomalous entity, but no effort has ever yielded a productive
result. Give this one a read – because it’s science
fiction horror at its best. We’ll leave a link down below. Swinging in next at Number 3 – SCP- something,
something, something … J. Ahhh – why even bother, right? SCP-whatever-J is an unspecified anomalous
object that is — well, it’s a rock – that’s probably memetic or something. Essentially, it’s a rock that makes you
procrastinate – and its sitting in a box over in Dr. Vangs office – who couldn’t even
find the motivation to properly fill out out the containment form for the particular item
in question. Yeah, obviously – under the influence of the
rock – or whatever. In all seriousness though – SCP-Blank-J falls
into the realm of the many joke classed SCP’s – because as well as being a body of horrifying
fictional work, the SCP Foundation actually has a pretty astute sense of humour as well. Which, is nice to see really – because you
can’t emotional tragedy without some comedy, right? Light and shade – peaks and troughs – it balances
out pretty nicely. Yeah, there’s not much more to say about
this one – other than it has over 2700 upvotes on the Foundations site, making it the 3rd
highest rated SCP of all time. Go figure. Next up at Number 2 – SCP-2521 Which – technically, I shouldn’t have said
out loud because – well, yeah. Bad things are going to happen now. Sorry folks. Good job I’ve got a healthy supply of clones
though, eh? 2521 is actually one of the most creative
items ever written for the Foundation, and it came into existence after being written
as part of the SCP Short Works contest – in which entrants had to write an SCP using as
few words as possible. This one was the winner – using a total of
zero – and only being described through picture format. Awesome, right? Essentially, 2521 is a Keter class anomalous
entity that exists to steal information about itself. If you write something down on a piece of
paper – it will teleport through the fabric of space and time and take the paper. If you say something about it out loud – it
will … – it will take you. Oh no — Alright – sorry about that. However, these events do not occur for pictures,
which is precisely why this particular SCP is written entirely through picture format. Even it’s name is in morse code to signify
what it is. No one knows why it does this – and we probably
may never know – but yeah, you’ve been warned. And finally – at our Number 1 spot – SCP-173 Which – may please you all to know, is the
first SCP ever created – and rightfully so – it comes in at the highest rated SCP of
all time with, currently, 4340 upvotes. He’s the guy that spawned the whole fictional
organisation, and since then – he’s maintained the top spot as the most iconic SCP of all
time. Although, that technically doesn’t mean
SCP-173 is the scariest entry in the Foundation, far from it in fact – but still, it’s got
some pretty terrifying weight behind it. As the record states, SCP-173 is a Euclid
class anomalous entity, that essentially is an animate yet extremely hostile statue, constructed
from concrete and rebar. The object cannot move while within a direct
line of sight with an individual – and line of sight must not be broken at any time with
SCP-173. So much so, that personnel assigned to enter
the container are instructed to alert one another before blinking. Which, would make a pretty horrifying horror
scene right – oh, wait – Doctor Who already used it. Damn weeping angels. If you break line of sight, SCP-173 is reported
to attack by snapping the neck at the base of the skull, or by strangulation. The thing is though, what makes the Foundation
so scared of SCP-173 is in its ability to produce copies of itself – which could potentially
result in an XK-Class Extinction Event – with the population of the planet ending up with
a snapped neck. Not good. Not good at all. Well – there we have it folks, our list for
the Top 5 Highest Rated SCP’s. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section
down below. Before we depart though, let’s read out
some of your more creative comments from the past few days. First up, CryoAnubis7 says — Another version
of you? It has been confirmed that Jack is a clone. — Well yeah, no point beating about the bush
buddy. You know what I say about clones – if you’ve
got ‘em, use ‘em. Just an old tip I picked up back in my old
days at the SCP Foundation. Oh, sorry – probably shouldn’t have said
that. Michael Cooley says — Well done! Always the best, Jack. I would love to see a video on haunted U.K
locations… Raynam Hall, the Horror at 50 Berkeley Square,
Ram’s Inn, Tower of London etc. Be nice to hear a list from someone who’s
lived there. Also, which do you prefer, UK or Canada? Cheers! — Well, cheers to you Michael, incredibly
kind words buddy – they’re very much appreciated. Also, that’s an awesome suggestion – one
that I’ve wanted to cover for a while, so I’ll see what I can do. As to the UK or Canada question – well. I love Canada, and I’m thoroughly enjoying
my time here in this beautiful country – but, I’d have to pick the U.K. Mainly for the
cheese and the ale. Hey, I’m pretty easy to please. Well unfortunately horror fans – that’s
all we’ve got time for in today’s video – cheers for sticking around all the way until
the end. If you were a fan of this video, make sure
to be a dear and hit that thumbs up button – as well as that subscribe bell, and we’ll
be seeing you in the next one. As per usual, I’ve been your horror host
Jack Finch – you’ve been watching Top 5 Scary Videos – and until next time, you take
it easy.
