* RebuiltPedestal: Chell becomes outraged and disillusioned with Wheatley when [[DirtyCoward he suggests to abandon the residents of Eaden]] and just have the two escape together. Her entire journey in the facility continues to have her question whether or not a robot like Wheatley is capable of emotions at all. Fortunately this is cleared up when Wheatley returns and saved her and the other Eaden inhabitants by sacrificing himself to shut down GLaDoS.

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Wheatley's human body is based off of his voice actor, StevenMerchant, who stands 6'7". Chell, meanwhile, is "not particularly tall."

** Wheatley's backstory, however, provides a rare inversion of this trope: [[spoiler: He was originally a human, but the Aperture scientists uploaded his brain into a computer and then cut his brain apart so it would fit into the programming they needed of him.]]

* RobotNames: Wheatley's complete identification code, according to Aperture Science, is 00004/[F]AS[IV][=IDPC241105=]/AS[I]HRAD -- which is short for "#4, Filetype: Aperture Science (4) Intelligence Dampening Personality Core (November 24, 2005); Aperture Science Interface: Human Relations Avatar Device". All AI he meets acknowledges him as this, though one kindly abbreviates it to "00004."
