Who is Scud?
Scud is the working name of Hong Kong Chinese film producer, screenwriter and now film director, Danny Cheng Wan-Cheung. He says that he chose the name 'Scud' to match his Chinese name, which translates in English as 'Scudding Clouds'. He was born in Guangzhou on March 20, 1967, during the country's Great Cultural Revolution. His films explore themes usually deemed too controversial for Hong Kong cinema, including same-sex relationships and drug-taking, and include many nude scenes of Chinese young men, whose pubic hair and private parts are fully exposed on camera. His film-making style eschews cynicism or gritty realism, and embraces an acceptance of the life choices made by his characters, rather than a search for 'solutions'.

- Scud a.k.a. Harry "Scud" East: A character in Thomas Hughes' novel Tom Brown's Schooldays, a schoolboy of the same level as Tom Brown himself. When he first meets Tom, he's described as a genuine specimen of a lower-school boy; frank, hearty, and good-natured, well-satisfied with himself and his position, and choke-full of life and spirits, and all the Rugby prejudices and traditions which he had been able to get together in the long course of one half-year during which he had been at the School-house.

- Scud is a series of tactical ballistic missiles developed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It was exported widely to other countries, in particular third world countries. The term comes from the NATO reporting name Scud which was attached to the missile by Western intelligence agencies. The Russian names for the missile are the R-11, R-17 and R-300 Elbrus. The name Scud has been widely used to refer to these missiles and the wide variety of derivative variants developed in other countries based on the Soviet design.
- also known as 飛毛腿飛彈
- Scud clouds, a type of fractus cloud, are low, detached, irregular clouds found beneath cumulonimbus clouds. These clouds are often ragged or wispy in appearance. When caught in the outflow beneath a thunderstorm, scud clouds will often move faster than the storm clouds themselves. When in an inflow area, scud clouds tend to rise and may exhibit lateral movement ranging from very little to substantial.
