"The SCP Foundation - EXPLAINED" video introduces the SCP Foundation, an organization that secures, contains, and protects anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena, ranging from benign to apocalyptic, to prevent chaos and maintain normalcy. The Foundation works in secret above international law, has the power to commit crimes and take lives if necessary to prevent existential threats posed by SCPs. SCPs are classified into three primary object classes - Euclid, Keter, and Thaumiel, where Euclid SCPs are entities that are difficult to contain and Keter SCPs are exceedingly challenging to contain. The Thaumiel SCPs are used by the Foundation to contain other SCPs. The Foundation personnel range from Class A to Class E, and the responsibilities are divided among the O5 Council Members, Site Directors, Researchers, Containment Specialists, Security and Tactical Response Officers, and Field Operatives. The SCP-2521, a creature that consumes anyone who speaks about it, is briefly mentioned, as well as the Foundation's ultimate goal of preserving peace by suppressing anomalies, even if it means terminating individuals.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, we learn about The SCP Foundation, an organization tasked with securing, containing, and protecting anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena, which range from benign to apocalyptic. They work in secret to maintain normalcy and prevent the chaos that would arise if the public knew about their activities. The Foundation operates above international law, with the approval of all world governments, and has the power to take lives and commit crimes if necessary to prevent an SCP from causing an existential threat. They organize SCPs based on their difficulty of containment, starting with "Safe" objects that require little resources to contain and ending with "Keter" objects, which pose an extreme threat to humanity.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, the video explains the three primary object classes of SCPs, namely Euclid, Keter, and Thaumiel. Euclid SCPs are entities that are difficult to contain completely or where containment is not always reliable. SCP-3008 is an example of an SCP in this class, and it appears to be a pocket dimension inside an Ikea store, which is ten kilometers in size and contains hostile faceless entities. On the other hand, Keter SCPs are exceedingly difficult to contain, requiring extensive and complex procedures due to their dangerous nature or their defiance of the known laws of physics or reality. The most dangerous of all are Thaumiel SCPs, and they are used by SCP Foundation to contain other SCPs. The video explains the classification levels of SCP Foundation personnel, ranging from Class A to Class E.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the various roles within the SCP Foundation are explained. At the top of the pyramid are the O5 Council Members, who oversee all Foundation operations, followed by Site Directors who manage physical facilities. Researchers, Containment Specialists, and Security and Tactical Response Officers work on-site to understand and contain anomalies, and if an SCP breaches containment, field operatives are dispatched to control the situation. The Foundation has a significant presence in society, but their ultimate goal is to preserve the peace by suppressing anomalies, even if it means terminating individuals. The SCP-2521, a creature that immediately consumes anyone who speaks or produces any information about it, is also briefly mentioned. The narrator is abruptly cut off after the creature attacks, but reassures the audience that they are fine in the end.
