* PlotArmor: Guess what? Ground-up moon rocks are pure poison! But they don't seem to affect Chell, though, so don't sweat it. (At least, we ''think'' they didn't give Chell cancer. Wow, that's morbid.)

* StrawFan: Wheatley cannot design a test to save his life. Lacking all originality, he can only recycle tests [=GLaDOS=] designed (autographing the walls with florescent bulbs to disguise his plagiarism) or, in true Frankenstein style, hastily stitch together various turrets and ''entire rooms'' with no regard for clashing mechanisms or wall textures. ("Seamless!") Word of God says the "Wheatley Laboratories" were inspired by actual {{game mod}}s -- a bit of biting the hand humor considering Valve later released a legit puzzle maker.

Lacking all originality, he can He only recycle tests manages to create one unique test of his own design and all it involves is pushing a button to drop a box onto a button then portaling to the other side...which he then makes you do again for lack of wanting to make another test himself. After this he simply finds test chambers originally designed by [=GLaDOS=] designed (autographing and throws them your way (adding some text on the walls with florescent bulbs wall to disguise his plagiarism) or, in true Frankenstein style, hastily stitch make them "his"). He'll also take pieces of test chambers made by [=GLaDOS=] and slam them together various turrets and ''entire rooms'' with no regard for in a horrible mish-mash of clashing mechanisms or wall textures.

** Because the players needed to know how incinerators worked for the boss fight, it was decided that the Cube would be incinerated once it was done. They hadn't realised how popular the Cube would be with the players, and a tragic story of failing to save a friend was created

The Party Escort Bot, alternatively known as the Party Associate, is a robot appearing in the retconned PC version of Portal, as of the March 3, 2010 patch. It's only role in the game is to drag Chell back into the facility after she defeats [=GLaDOS=], so that she can have new adventures in the sequel.

* SurroundedByIdiots: Thanks to Wheatley's dodgy construction, the gun turrets can't even be trusted to fire. That is, unless they've discovered a way to garrote [[spoiler:Chell]], which would explain the lack of screaming. Yeah, that's the ticket.

* SurroundedByIdiots: Thanks Due to Wheatley's dodgy construction, Chell and Wheatley sabotaging the gun manufacture of turrets can't even be trusted earlier in the story, [[spoiler:the turrets that Wheatley sics on her towards the end of the game end up nonfunctional, similar to fire.the turrets that [=GLaDOS=] tried to use against Chell when she had her trapped in the glass cube]]. That is, unless they've discovered a way to garrote [[spoiler:Chell]], which would explain the lack of screaming. Yeah, that's the ticket.
