* CutSong: Creator/EllenMcLain and her husband John Patrick Lowrie wrote a song for [=GLaDOS=] to sing. They recorded it in their living room and offered it to Valve for use as an EasterEgg in the game, but it ended up not being utilized. In April 2015, the song was re-recorded in a studio and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgiNKEXtx7I uploaded to the internet.]]

** One of the gels was supposed to allow you to ignore gravity and walk up walls. It was cut because it made playtesters sick. It was one of the three "paints" in the indie game ''Tag: The Power of Paint'', that inspired the gel mechanic. The other two, "Fast" and "Jump/Bounce", made their way in the game with the new Conversion Gel.

* InternetCounterattack: Relatively minor compared to most examples, but some people were not happy with the results of the [[AlternateRealityGame Potato Sack contest]] on Steam, and [[http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/portal-2/user-reviews wrote negative user reviews on Metacritic just for that.]]
