* ''[[VideoGame/LegoDimensions LEGO Dimensions]]'' (2015): A CrisisCrossover where Franchise/{{Batman}}, [[WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie Wyldstyle]] & [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]] explore various dimensions to find a way to defeat [[OmnicidalManiac Lord Vortech]]. One location they visit is Aperture Science, and [=GLaDOS=] plays a supporting role as an antagonist throughout the level and later in the game, [[spoiler: and even gets into an argument with [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]] at one point]]. There is also a level pack that is more-or-less a continuation of the Portal series story featuring Chell (as the playable character), [=GLaDOS=] and Wheatley. [[spoiler: The ending song for the game, like the previous ''Portal'' games, was written by Johnathan Coulton and sung by Ellen [=McLain=].]]
