* ''VideoGame/PortalPinball'' (2015): A PinballSpinoff available for ''VideoGames/ZenPinball'' (''Pinball FX'' for Microsoft platforms). It takes most of its cues from ''Portal 2'', though there are some nods to the first game as well.

* MascotVillain: {{GLaDoS}}, though her #1 mascot status is edged out by the CompanionCube. The evil comes in the fact that she forces Chell to run around an deadly obstacle course [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake with the promise of cake]], and that when she gets to the end, tries to kill Chell.

* ''[[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 [[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=].]]

* SoundtrackDissonance
* SpecialEffectsFailure: At the very end of the game, [[spoiler: when you're lying on the ground outside the entrance to the facility]], there is a backdrop of trees laid out in front of you. When [[spoiler: robot grabs you for assuming the Party Escort Submission Position]], the movement of the screen allows you to see that the tree backdrop doesn't extend past your initial field of vision. This is because [[spoiler: the Party Escort robot]] was patched in long after the game was finished as a teaser to Portal 2.

* [[WhamEpisode Wham Level]]:
** Test Chamber 16. This is the point where GLaDOS's malfunctioning stops being so funny. It's bad enough that you're pitted against a live fire course filled with turrets that will shoot you on sight. Then you discover the hidden area behind the wall panel, and you realize just how terribly wrong things have gone.
** Test Chamber 19. Naturally, as the last test chamber, something interesting was bound to happen. Most people probably didn't expect that that would involve [[spoiler: being lowered to your death into a pit of fire.]]
