I like it, though how you would get an artists rendering of its face without looking at it confuses me. (Unless you had extremely fast artists.) I also do not think this would require a Keter classification, seems pretty solidly Euclid to me.

Either a fast artist, or one viewing a photograph of its face from across the world. They'd have however long it took the thing to run halfway round the planet before it shredded them.
I agree, though; it seems very Euclid. Lock it in a box and not much is going to happen… heh, its containment procedure pretty much is a Locked Box Test.

*suddenly gets this vision of a van driving along a freeway in the middle of nowhere, with the back doors open and some guy furiously drawing on a sketch pad while this thing trails along behind it*
I'm not sure that the person looking at them would be defined as part of the SCP, but other than that, I like it.

Ordinarily no but in this case the viewer has become part of the Containment Protocol, their existence alters the ballgame as it where. As such it makes sense to refer to them in those terms. Oh and while this seems similar to 173 in action, it is highly different theme, construction and, as much as logic exists, internal logic. It is legitimately similar because it is legitimately different. And if that makes sense to anyone can you explain to me what I just said that would be wonderful.
What happens if someone in space were to see his picture?
Maybe it's really really good at jumping.
Can you imagine that?!? What I would see is: SCP-096 ready for lift off. In t minus 10
LIFT OFF SCP-096 IS ON THE GO.
After reading this I got a horrible image in my mind of SCP-096 swimming through space like he was in a pool trying to catch some poor fucker locked in some box out in space.
He'd start flapping his arms and begin to motherfucking fly.
So, do we get to see the artistic depiction?
(I could draw one, if you like)
I said it in the chat, but I figure I might as well say it here, too:
I hate the phrase "unrecognizable language". I hate seeing it in SCP articles. It's not just cheap; it makes no fucking sense.
There's no such thing as an unrecognizable language. If there was, it would be an SCP in and of itself. What you're actually talking about is just a language that you have yet to identify, and it seems stupidly defeatist to declare that it's impossible to identify, which is exactly what you're saying when you describe the language as "unrecognizable".
And, to top it all off, it's outright stated that 096 is non-sapient. Why do we think it's actually speaking in a language and not simply babbling semi-meaninglessly, like a normal animal? Occam's Razor, people. It's not that hard.

the incident report is a good read :) that said i keep wondering what would happen if you had someone view a picture of it….IN SPACE :P
IN SPACE this would still suck as bad
seriously I don't know if I can harbor forgiveness in my heart that this thing has been upvoted so much or if I can accept living in a world that loves it
gonna go listen to Coldplay because that seems suitably emo and sucks marginally less than this terrible SCP
I would like to know why we cant just cut this things head off and be done with it. If it takes damage, we should be able to remove its limbs and render it immobile. Or launch it at the sun… I highly doubt this thing could escape its gravity well… but on point.
If this thing takes damage, all we would need to do is rig it with C4 and only detonate it if it breaks containment.
Does attacking it provoke its rage state?
Does this thing regenerate limbs/anything?
Has this thing actually been tested on?

Daaaaaaag, I was so sure it does.
Even IC, though, I think we're attempting to destroy it, albeit that was likely to be a non-canon story(yeah yeah I know, no canon and such and such).
Not the point of this site. Maybe you want to help with the GOC?

Aaand, If its not scheduled for termination IC, then it should be either removed or pending approval.
If you would have read the article, Mr.Caldwell, you would notice that an anti-tank gun did not kill it. While in the article the doctor DID say that it should be destroyed, either the Foundation doesn't want to or they can't. Likely the first one, as the Foundation at its soul are a bunch of pack-rats.
Yeah, the doctor said so but not the O5.
Dr. ███ has also petitioned for immediate termination of SCP-096 (see Interview 096-1). Order is awaiting approval. Termination order has been approved, and is to be carried out by Dr. ███ on [DATA REDACTED]. See Incident-096-1-A.
Being APPROVED, I think it stands.
Wait doesn't the document confirm that SCP-96 was successfully terminated?
It can't be harmed when it's in it's enraged state is what the document said.
The anti tank gun damaged it. Not kill it.
We haven't tried bigger explosives.
In-universe comments do not have to be taken seriously in real life, if I recall correctly. The Foundation moved past the RP aspect a while ago.
Srry for late post, but apparently it's bone structure won't be damaged, so cutting his head clean off would not cause anything expect probably enraging it.
1. Attacking probably causes it not to attack instantly, but perhaps make it look at the attacker and then killing him.
2. As long as it's bone structure is undamaged it doesn't seem to need to regenerate. However when described as man with very little body mass it probably can regenerate it's body to original point slowly, since it was shot with anti-tank rifle when attempting containment.
What happens if we show a D-class a picture of 096, and then shoot him? Does 096 immediately calm down, or does it break out and mutilate the corpse?
