"If a flaw in the system disables the censors covering the Abnormality, we will once again have to sincerely consider how to dispose of the manager."
- CENSORED's Entry

CENSORED (O-03-89) is an ambiguous Abnormality which its visual form is conformed by red 'Censored' bars. While in containment, a tall censored bar is in the middle while other smaller ones are spread on an horizontal way on it, moving slightly. Its actual form is forbidden.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Its ability triggers when its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter reaches 0. Its counter will drop by 1 when an employee who works with it Panics or by getting a BadResult.png Bad Work Result. Any Agent who is Level 4 or lower and tries to work with it will Panic instantly (EmergencyLevel4Icon.png Overwhelmed), while others will get the EmergencyLevel3Icon.png Hopeless Fear Level damage at the start of work, subtracting SPIcon.png SP from the employee' equal 60% of its SPIcon.png Max SP.

Its Repression.png Repression Work is replaced by a Special Work called SacrificeWork.png Sacrifice. This work will bring the Wheel of Fortune (The same one of Nameless Fetus), which the player can click on it to continue or cancel it. When proceeding, the wheel will select a random employee, Agent or Clerk; in the same department and that is not panicking to be sent against their will to Censored's containment unit to be 'consumed' by the Abnormality and increase their QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter by 1(Can't go over 2). If there are no more available employees in the department, it will select the ones from other department instead.

When the QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter is depleted, the Abnormality will breach. When breaching, its form will change to one similar to a horse, still conformed by censored bars. It MovementSpeedIcon.png moves slowly through the facility, it has a great amount of HPIcon.png HP at 1500, and attacks at close range, dealing high (23~27) BlackDamageTypeIcon.png Black Damage. Any 4 or lower Level employees will Panic instantly after encountering it, and others will suffer the EmergencyLevel3Icon.png Hopeless Fear Level instead. If it kills an employee by its attacks, it will engulf the employee in a big censored square, killing and spreading the organs of the employee around, with a long beeping sound, and while the process take place, the employees in the same area will suffer quick constant (12~18) WhiteDamageTypeIcon.png White Damage. Afterwards, it will return to its previous form and summon a minion, made of the same censored bars. The minions are smaller, MovementSpeedIcon.png slower and similar to the Abnormality in terms of power and stats, but don't perform any extra abilities. If the Abnormality pass over an employee's corpse, it will take the form similar to a drill, like in its containment, and consume the body of the employee, HPHealing.png healing itself by 5% and summoning another minion. It will remain breaching until suppressed or the day ends.

Origin[edit | edit source]

CENSORED is an Abnormality so visually horrifying that causes almost all the employees to become insane, having a high mental corruption, even through reports, limiting the talk and works with the Abnormality to only the high level employees. Because of CENSORED being able to even make a Manager lose their sanity, the Abnormality's true form has been covered with a blur, or in this case, Censor bars and if the Cognition Filter ever removes the blur and the manager is exposed to it, the only option would be of disposing the manager.

Is known that CENSORED is a being that can breed and reproduce with employees/humans, but the employees cannot survive the process. Even, it might only need a body to use and not a living employee, as shown by its ability during breach. It has a true meaning for its existence but so far is still censored.

Other notes taken from its log is that only employees of Level 5 or higher can resist the visual aspect of CENSORED and that the managers can indeed panic by its true form, which mean that most managers aren't of the highest level, and even considering that employees in the facility might not be under the Cognition Filter's effects.

Details[edit | edit source]

CENSORED responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Insight.png Insight, Instinct.png Instinct, Attachment.png Attachment and Repression.png Repression (SacrificeWork.png Sacrifice). Every employee below Level 5 will panic instantly when entering its containment room.

Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.

CENSORED's emotional state is divided into 2 sections: BadResult.png Bad and NormalResult.png Normal. Completing 0-16 E Boxes will cause it to feel BadResult.png Distressed and completing 17-32 will cause it to feel NormalResult.png Normal. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds. Its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter is 2.

Story[edit | edit source]

CENSORED's encyclopedia portrait

"Any attempts to describe (CENSORED) will cause severe mental corruption to both the speaker and the listener. Therefore, it is forbidden to record any depictions of the appearance of this (CENSORED). All audio and written records should be inspected to ensure that such depictions are deleted from them. All work pertaining to this deletion must be designated to Level 5 or higher employees."

<Excerpt from Audio Record>
"Randy: It's a shame that we have to send such a capable employee like you to its Containment Unit. Do you have any last words before proceeding? Of course, when I say last words, it’s just a precautionary thing.

(CENSORED): It can't be helped. I'm the employee with the highest resistance against cognitive breakdown. I’ve been apathetic towards everything since I was a kid. People often said I lacked empathy and wasn’t normal. However, when I got to work here, my abnormal ability became the key to save everyone. This is something that can never be experienced anywhere else.

Randy: Let me say this again. While it is true that you have the highest resistance among employees, that's only based on human standards. If you begin to suffer from a surge of intrusive thoughts, or you decide to count down from ten but fail to remember what ten even is, or feel an uncontrollable regurgitation of vomit or saliva, or if this place starts to feel like somewhere else other than the company, or you suddenly feel insignificant and think that suffocating is your only hope… you need to leave the Containment Unit immediately.

(CENSORED): If you tell me that one more time, that'll make it thirteen times you've said that now.

Randy: We cannot monitor you in real time. All cameras are off, and your audio record will only be updated after the work is finished. Needless to say, I'm worried about you. Why don't you repeat the instructions I gave you a bit ago?

(CENSORED): Go in, don't do the work myself, accompany employee (CENSORED) and observe the work progress. And record everything that happens; even if (CENSORED) is in danger, do not attempt to rescue unless ordered otherwise. Right?

Randy: Exactly. Now, our contact will be cut off in ten seconds. Good luck and godspeed to your record.

(CENSORED): I have no regrets. I’d say I’m pretty lucky compared to the others; at the very least I get to leave my last voice record. Well, I say “last” only as a precaution but…

Randy: All right, your record will be eternally archived and all our fellow employees will remember you. 3... 2... 1... End audio receiving.

(CENSORED): Randy... That looks, just like our (CENSORED) from long ago, doesn't it? ...Oh, I forgot for a moment that only I can see this. Employee (CENSORED) who was with me became (CENSORED)... It... looks like it can even breed... Employee (CENSORED) who was with me became (CENSORED)... This is just like the process of (CENSORED)... I feel a little sick, but I’m good…
A small (CENSORED) came out of employee (CENSORED)'s (CENSORED)... I can't believe this... Now it's starting to (CENSORED) employee (CENSORED)... Employee (CENSORED) is screaming like (CENSORED)... The cries... Can you hear them? It reminds me of (CENSORED)...
Sound: (CENSORED)——————————————————
Now I see... This is our (CENSORED)... This is the reason (CENSORED) exists...This is the worst thing I’ve seen in my life. I can’t even move. Looks like (CENSORED) has made me its next target. Soon... I will (CENSORED) too… It’s getting closer. I’ll put the recorder in my (CENSORED)...
I hope this record will help everyone…
<Audio cuts off>"

"Even after we adopted the cognition filter, many of our managers have lost their minds. Half of them gone because of (CENSORED). Even if we raise the cognition filter to its maximum setting at the risk of having our employees and other Abnormalities being perceived as extremely simple objects, the managers will still be driven insane as soon as this Abnormality comes into sight.
We can’t make our manager blind just because of one Abnormality. We’re stuck in a dilemma. The only solution we could come up with was at the suggestion of one of our employees. It was to cover the Abnormality with a giant set of censors and blurring. If a flaw in the system disables the censors covering the Abnormality, we will once again have to sincerely consider how to dispose of the manager."

Flavour Text[edit | edit source]

  • "<name> is (CENSORED) to (CENSORED)."
  • "<name> is feeling (CENSORED) from (CENSORED)."
  • "(CENSORED) is doing (CENSORED) and… Goodness, that’s disgusting."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • CENSORED is the first Abnormality to be able to make employees panic due to their overall Level and not by their stats level, as well changing the Fear Level impact.
  • An employee (level 4 or lower) working on CENSORED in containment will not be saved from Chesed's Boss upgrade. This is due to CENSORED not exactly dealing fear damage to level 4 and lower employees and instead reducing the SP of the employee to 0 and panicking them.
