The SCP Foundation Heritage Collection is an official "Hall of Fame" containing articles that are considered both iconic and easily identified as well as being significant to the site's history and culture.


All articles in the Heritage Collection must meet the following requirements:

  1. The article must have both a significant presence on the SCP Foundation main list and in the SCP Foundation fan community.
  2. The article must be at least three (3) years old and have a favorable (positive) rating.
  3. The article must be sufficiently iconic that staff determines that the possibility of ever removing it from its numeric designation poses a danger of confusing the fan community.

These articles do not necessarily represent a solid canon, but represent examples of classic or core articles that are widely recognized and generally well-regarded.
