SCP-682, also referred to as "Hard-To-Destroy Reptile," is a massive reptilian like creature that appears in the SCP Foundation.


The real name of SCP-682 is Atanti-ql-Paneu, a Leviathan descendant of The Scarlet King and A'zieb, the fourth Scarlet Bride. SCP-682 is a large beast of unknown origin, somewhat reptile-like. It appears to be extremely clever and was found to engage in a complex conversation with SCP-079. SCP-682 seems to have a hatred of all life which was expressed in several containment interviews.

Powers & Abilities

  • Superhuman Strength: 682 possesses incredible physical strength that allows him to tangle with his fellow Keter-class SCPs, dig into the earth with little effort, mow down multiple peak human SCP personal guards, and smash through metal doors, buildings, tanks, etc.
  • Superhuman Speed: 682 is also faster than most vehicles on foot, to the point where he could react to a flying helicopter in mid-flight. He can react to bullets, missiles and tank shots, and keep up with SCP-096, who as you all know can sprint across the entire planet in just two hours.
  • Superhuman Durability: 682's title of "Hard-To-Destroy Reptile" is well earned by the fact that he can shrug of just about anything thrown his way. Explosions, high-powered lasers, blades, bullets, and highly corrosive chemicals alike have to failed to kill him.
  • Intelligence: 682 is also far from just a mindless brute. He is extremely intelligent and capable of speech, though he rarely converses willingly with staff, and cannot be reasoned with at all. 682 has displayed an innate understanding of the workings of certain instances after only a short exposure, and possesses a memory that stretches back a staggering length.
  • Regeneration: One of SCP-682's most broken traits is his healing factor that allows him to take so much abuse. He can instantaneously regenerate from wounds that no other organism should, like having 87% of his body destroyed, living in a room filled with acid, and regenerating from 0.03 ml of blood, he can even recover from reality warping, crystalization, mind control and even possession.
  • Consumption: By consuming matter, whether organic or inorganic, 682 can increase his mass with theoretically no limit. The largest instance of this was when he grew to the size of Jupiter.
  • Adaptation: When injured in a specific way, 682 will adapt to that negative stimulus, sometimes by incorporating it into his own body, which has lead to many, many, many, many, many, many, many, MANY different adaptations over the years. 682's adaptations can include changing his size, growing extra appendages, becoming immune to all known diseases and viruses, shifting his own genetic makeup, reanimating himself from death, absorbing other's abilities, become multiple entities, and even creating localized space-time anomalies as either a defense mechanism and for dimensional travel.
    • Reality Warping: Can create localized space-time anomalies as a defense mechanism, similar to both the sudden appearance and disappearance of a black hole or the theoretical event of a hole forming between one dimension and another, it allows him dimensional travel, though 682 only uses this ability sparingly.


  • Teeth: Used for catching and thrashing his prey.
  • Claws: Can lift, grab, claw and slash things, used to mutilate his prey.
  • Tail: Used for whipping and clubbing.

Fun Facts

  • SCP-053 is the only thing that SCP-682 won't try to kill.
  • SCP-079 is seemingly the only thing closest to a friend to SCP-682, which may be due to SCP-079 being an A.I. and not a conventional lifeform.
  • SCP-682 is based on a real-life sea monster found by a group of soldiers after a Tsunami in 2006 on an island Sakhalin in the east part of Russia and near Japan. The remains of the carcass have been scientifically identified to be that of a beluga whale.
  • Top15s placed SCP-682 as number 10 in the top 15 dangerous SCP creatures.
  • In the "revised entry" of SCP-173, in which SCP-173 was able to multiply itself and seemingly create a hive mind, they were able to rip apart 682, which put a smile on the face of a researcher.
  • He has a history with SCP-082. 082 considers 682 a friend but 682 states it isn't mutual.
  • He is aware of SCP-1364 and considers him his opposite.
