SCP-999, also known as The Tickle Monster, is a safe-class SCP under the SCP Foundation's containment. It is known for its adorable appearance and friendly attitude.
SCP-999 is described to be a large orange slime. If a person is very close to it, SCP-999 would jump on them, hug them softly, and while they nuzzle into the person's face, it would let out high-pitched gurgling noises and release smells of: chocolate, fresh laundry, bacon, roses, and Play-Doh.
SCP-999 has a major interest into people that are unhappy or hurt in anyway. People that have depression, after interacting with SCP-999, are totally healed from their problem, also they get a very positive picture about life.
Because SCP-999 is a very playful being, it appears that SCP-999 loves all animals (but especially humans). SCP-999 doesn't eat meat at all, and it even risks its own life for others. It was confirmed that SCP-999 indeed would leap in front of a person to take a bullet inside of it. The creature eats candy and sweets. Upon physical contact with animals, they begin to feel a tingling, tickle-like feeling. Once the contact is over, the animal often still feels the tickling, and long after contact, animals begin to feel euphoria.
SCP-999 was conceived by the Seventh Bride (SCP-231-7), who had been impregnated by the Scarlet King. The Scarlett King performed a ritual to torture the Seventh Bride and prevent her from giving birth to SCP-999, but Foundation intervention drove him away and allowed the birth to occur.
Dr. Collingwood was instructed to protect SCP-999 so he can "overthrow the Scarlet King not by force, but with light and love and laughter that can brighten the blackest of hearts."
Collingwood would later state that "999 is not in reality a safe class SCP. It is Thaumiel. It is the best and really the only weapon we have against some of the most powerful hostile entities known to exist."
