SCP-682, also commonly known as the Hard To Destroy Reptile, is an SCP object and one of the most well-known and dangerous objects in The SCP Foundation's care. It is a Keter level being and the offspring of the Scarlet King and SCP-999's half brother.



SCP-682 is described as vaguely reptilian and has only one official photo to date, showing its head after being immersed in acid. However, in the SCP game Hard to Destroy Reptile in which a player or several players must re-contain the escaped beast, it appears as a vaguely crocodile-esque creature with bones exposed in multiple places on its body.

Its jaws are lined with razor sharp teeth and it has a second mouth on its stomach. Two human arms, likely consumed, juts out of its body and it moves in a quadrupedal manner.


SCP-682 is an undisputed monster; simply talking to it is enough to drive it in a murderous and destructive rage. Despite being so dangerous and violent, it is extremely intelligent and rather sophisticated right alongside its blasphemous vulgarity, referring to SCP-999 as a "feculent little snot wad". Despite its malevolence, he has seemingly developed a healthy friendship with the little girl known as SCP-053, who is also contained by the foundation.


SCP-682 is the offspring of the Scarlet King. After the Children of the Scarlet King enacted a ritual in which seven young girls became effigies for the Scarlet King’s seven brides, allowing them to bear his children, SCP-682 was born as the offspring of the fourth bride.

It is unknown when or how the Foundation acquired SCP-682 but presumably it happened shortly after the creature attacked a farm and slaughtered everything on it. It bore a particular hatred for the humans of the farm and when questioned about its motives, it simply says "They were...disgusting...".

SCP-682 is marked for destruction, however, it cannot be destroyed by conventional means as it is terrifyingly strong and resilient, and any damage done can be quickly regenerated. This makes it necessary to keep the creature submerged in hydrochloric acid, which eats away at it as fast as it regenerates itself.

SCP-682 has escaped containment six times and even the definitely fatal and detrimental effects of other SCPs simply incapacitate it at best.
