SCP-001,also known as "The Gate Guardian",is a Euclid/Keter class humanoid entity that is one of many potential entities that share the SCP-001 title. It can be viewed as the overall protagonist of the SCP series,depending on its interpretation. SCP-001 is the being that prompted the founder to create the SCP Foundation in order to "prepare" for an unknown future event and to contain many other dangerous or helpful entities and anomalies. It has never left its station.


The gate guardian is an impossible to contain, colossal entity that's standing over 1000 feet in height, with anywhere from 2 to 108, but usually 4, luminous wing like appendages sprouting from the beings shoulders, back, temples, ankles, and wrists. The guardian wields a weapon described as either a sword or knife also known as SCP-001-2. The weapon can emit flames that rival the heat of the sun but,strangely,cause no damage to the environment around it. As its name suggests, The Gate Guardian stands,weapon drawn and head bowed, in front of an equally colossal gate through which a pastoral grove can be seen along with multiple other entities that share SCP-001s description. This grove is thought to be the biblical Garden of Eden. The grove contains many fruit trees of unknown species with two trees of immense size near the groves center. One of them,thought to be the Tree of Knowledge, appears to be an ordinary apple tree while the other, thought to be the Tree of Life, bears a fruit unknown on earth. SCP-001 can and will annihilate any and all beings,organic or artificial, that pass within a 1 km radius of itself and ignore it's warnings,this is down to the sub-atomic level. The speed at which these attacks happen make it look like SCP-001 barely even moves. Ranged attacks on SCP-001 end with the instant annihilation of all projectiles(including nukes) and attackers no matter where in the world they are. In the case where a D-Class was executed for refusing to ignore SCP-001s warning to leave,all people responsible for the death of the D-Class were immediately annihilated along with their research site. If real, The Gate Guardian is one of, if not THE most powerful being that The Foundation has ever seen.


Not much is know about SCP-001s personality as it rarely interacts with people and The Foundation rarely interacts with it out of safety. What is known however is that SCP-001 isn't openly hostile,preferring to send a telepathic message such as "FORGET" or "LEAVE" to all living beings who pass within a 1 km radius of itself. When the message is followed,the being will be free to leave,all while forgetting about SCP-001s existence. It appears to at least care about humanity as a whole but not as individuals or as groups as while it inspired the creator of The Foundation to start containing and fighting creatures and entities that would gladly wipe out all life on earth at best and erase the universe at worst, it has no qualms about destroying any one person or group of people who ignore its warnings or, on the very rare occasion, anger it,not seaming to care about collateral damage.


  • A certain experiment which included SCP-001 and a nuclear submarine led to the detonation of multiple warheads at once. This then led to the deaths of around 35,000 people, most of whom were innocent civillians. This event very nearly exposed The Foundation to the world, resulting in the mandatory termination of all family, friends and individuals related, in any way, to the 35,000 victims to prevent questioning and the deployment of amnestics(memory wipe drugs) on a near global scale. After this, any and all experiments including SCP-001 and nuclear material were permanently banned on order of the O5 council.
  • During a later experiment which included SCP-001 and SCP-073 , also known as "Cain" a particular incident occurred which ended with SCP-073 being left unconscious and the permanent blinding of multiple members of personnel. After this incident, no further experiments of any kind which include SCP-001 are permitted on the order of the O5 council.
  • At some point, The Foundation received a message dated from an unknown amount of years into the future. The message describes an apocalyptic event during which, for the first time, SCP-001 leaves its position at the gate, signalling the end of earth as we know it.
