The Korean demilitarized zone, where SCP-XXXX was discovered

Item #:* SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: The remains of SCP-XXXX are to remain in a standard anomalous entity disposal container for research purposes.

Following recent geopolitical developments on the Korean Peninsula,

Description: SCP-XXXX was an anomalous biomechanical entity that primarily resided in the 38th parallel north demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, although incursions into civilian territory have been reported.

The entity's main body was comprised of a metallic ellipsoidal capsule approximately 5.5 m in length and 2.5 m in width, with three orifices at the superior end that revealed an organic interior. A fourth synthetic aperture existed at the medial section of the main body, the interior of which was illuminated with blue light from an unknown source. SCP-XXXX was quadrupedal, its main form of locomotion being four equidistant segmented cylindrical appendages approximately 1.0 m in length and 0.3 m in width, radiating semi-distally from the inferior end. Examination of SCP-XXXX revealed the presence of numerous weaponry installed at different locations on its body, including small arms and artillery. However, extreme wear had rendered them inactive.

Depending on which side of the DMZ the entity was currently on, SCP-XXXX exhibited two separate major patterns of behavior, hereafter designated Mium (미움) and Aejong (애정) patterns.

Mium patterns occurred when SCP-XXXX was on the southern side of the DMZ. Mium patterns are marked by hostility

The insignias of the Soviet Armed Forces and the Korean People's Army are present on its exterior. It is theorized that SCP-XXXX was engineered by GRU Division "P", the anomalous research organ of the greater GRU directorate, provided to North Korea as part of aid during the Korean War. Although it is known that the Soviet Union conducted research into the engineering of anomalous entities for the purposes of war, no records exist of these anomalies seeing actual combat. Therefore, SCP-XXXX is presumably a prototype escapee of the program.

Addendum XXXX-1: On 2025-06-25, SCP-XXXX was reclassified as Neutralized.

At 6:25 AM KST, SCP-XXXX was spotted in the North Korean village of Amsil exhibiting typical behavior. Witnesses recall an elderly Korean man approaching the entity at 6:59 AM, at which point SCP-XXXX began to deviate from known behavior. SCP-XXXX was reported to

Facial recognition software confirmed that the individual was Sung-keun Oh, a 98-year-old North Korean resident. Investigation revealed that Oh was one of an approximated 1200 surviving Northern veterans fo the Korean War and had married a woman named Eun-an Song in 1947, but the two separated following the outbreak of war. Oh had numerous relatives living in South Korea.

It is of note that SCP-XXXX's deactivation coincided near-perfectly with the signing of the Korean Unification Treaty and the creation of the Unified State of Korea.
