SCP-200-JP
rating: +3+x

Item #: SCP-200-JP

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-200-JP is to be contained in a low-risk item storage vault with a desiccant. SCP-200-JP is to be kept dry outside of testing conditions as it is is activated by moisture. To prevent the accident occurrence due to mistakes such as forgetting to wipe, personnel are encouraged to pick SCP-200-JP up with fingers when they transport it.

Description: SCP-200-JP is a typical "Rubber Duck" toy. While it emits a short or long sound when squeezed, the length of sound seems to not be related to the manner how it is handled. Its manufacturer and production factory were identified and concluded to be non-anomalous. No similar object has been found from the production line of said factory.

SCP-200-JP activates whenever it is exposed to water. If there is a human within 10cm radius and 5m below during the active state, SCP-200-JP rapidly increases its weight. An experiment a D-Class personnel involved has proved that the weight increase of SCP-200-JP continues as long as a human exists under it; SCP-200-JP increased its weight to 420kg within 3 seconds, and returned to its original weight shortly after the resulting death of D-Class. Based on this, it is theorized that SCP-200-JP is not responsive to dead bodies.

SCP-200-JP was recovered from a bathroom of municipal housing complex, located in the city of █████████. The owner claimed he found this object on the riverside. As the owner's pelvis was damaged due to SCP-200-JP, the owner and his guardians were amnesticized; the false memories about a falling accident at the bathroom was implanted.

Addendum: Initially, this anomaly was supposed to be classified as an Anomalous Item; however, it was eventually designated as a Safe-Class object after Test 8941-07 was carried out.

Test Log 8941-07 - 20██/██/██

Subject: A rubber duck (Note: subsequently designated as SCP-200-JP)
Method: Squeeze the duck 200 times to determine if there is any regularity in the length of sounds.
Result: A fixed regularity was found; the combination of short sounds and long sounds can be interpreted as a text based on the Wabun morse code. The detected message is as follows.

Analysis: This item may be sentient, or at least possess some kind of information. Hereby I withdraw the proposal about the classification to Anomalous Item, and request to reexamine the circumstances of retrieval.

Reexamination by the Foundation failed to obtain any new information about the discovery of SCP-200-JP as all involved person were already amnesticized.
