In the "file" of SCP-96, it states that after a person views its face (this person becoming SCP-96-1) "no known material or method can impede SCP-96’s progress"

Does this mean this SCP can track down and kill anyone who has seen its face no matter the distance or material in between the two?

If you look at the next line in the SCP wiki it states:

Documented speeds have varied from thirty-five (35) km/h to ███ km/h, and seems to depend on distance from SCP-096-1. At this point, no known material or method can impede SCP-096's progress. The actual position of SCP-096-1 does not seem to affect SCP-096's response; it seems to have an innate sense of SCP-096-1's location. Note: This reaction does not occur when viewing artistic depictions (see Document 096-1) .

Upon arriving at SCP-096-1's location, SCP-096 will proceed to kill and [DATA EXPUNGED] SCP-096-1. 100% of cases have left no traces of SCP-096-1. SCP-096 will then sit down for several minutes before regaining its composure and becoming docile once again. It will then attempt to make its way back to its natural habitat, [DATA REDACTED]

(Emphasis mine)

So by saying that actual position doesn't matter and an "innate sense" it suggests that yes, it can do this regardless of distance/material.


Well, the article saying "no known material or method can impede SCP-096’s progress" should already give the answer: Yeah, SCP-096 can chase down and kill everything except SCP-682.
