Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Actor ██████ ████████ (PoI-XXXX-1), who most commonly portrays SCP-XXXX within the works in which it appears, has been introduced to the Foundation with Level 0 clearance, and permanent Class-E designation. They are to reside within a standard humanoid containment chamber at Site-34, with freedom and allowances consistent with Class-IV (Limited Civilian), provided they do not breach the terms stated within the terms of their containment agreement (see document XXXX/A), or make any other serious breach of physical or information security.

All films that meet the stated terms for the inclusion of SCP-XXXX are to be monitored throughout production for any appearances of SCP-XXXX by Mobile Task Force Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings"), with any deviance from nominal behaviour reported immediately to the appropriate regional site director. Additionally, in the event of an SCP-XXXX manifestation, PoI-XXXX-1 is to be inserted into the production of the film in question in order to prevent the spread of knowledge about SCP-XXXX

Description: SCP-XXXX is a metafictional construct that exists primarily within film media, typically high budget action films produced in North America. SCP-XXXX most commonly manifests as a background or unimportant character in the context of the work in which it appears, consistently bearing the name "Hector," where mentioned.
SCP-XXXX is believed to carry a mild memetic effect which targets film producers, and makes them more likely to propose works that would include the correct conditions for the manifestation of SCP-XXXX. These conditions, as known to the Foundation, are:

  • A budget upwards of 150 Million USD
  • A well known lead actor
  • The inclusion of human characters
  • A setting in the late 20th or early 21st century
  • A setting which is semi-realistic.
  • A sufficient number of action set pieces, such that the film genre would be classified as "Action"

Analysis of all works featuring SCP-XXXX is ongoing to determine further conditions.
