* AlternateRealityGame: On March 1, 2010, the game received a surprise patch, featuring a new achievement and a load of seemingly innocuous sound files full of static. Until someone savvy enough to know old-school technology (SSTV) found images hidden within them and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Portal-2-ARG-SSTV-Images.png oh bloody hell]].

* EssentialMadness: Schizophrenic Doug Rattman was completely right in suspecting the operating system was [[AIIsACrapshoot out to kill everyone]] and so was the only survivor of the lab incident.
* EternalEngine: The facilities behind-the-scenes. Taken to further extremes in the sequel.

* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:When Wheatley is in control of Aperture, he attempts to mimic [=GLaDOS=]' mannerisms, but fails miserably]].



* InfantImmortality: Judging by the fact that [=GLaDOS=]' initial rampage took place during "Bring Your Daughter To Work Day", it's safe to assume this trope was averted.

''Portal'' is a {{First Person|Shooters}} PuzzlePlatformer video game series created by Creator/{{Valve|Software}} that takes place in the [[SharedUniverse same universe]] as the ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' series. As the name implies, the core gameplay element of the ''Portal'' games deals with using a "portal gun" to create doorway-type portals in order to solve physics based puzzles. The game features the protagonist [[HeroicMime Chell]], a human who woke up as an unwilling test subject in the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, a research facility which has become completely abandoned, save for the personality of the [[AIISACrapshoot insane]] [[MasterComputer central A.I.]] [=GLaDOS=].

* DeadlyEnvironmentPrison: There are multiple indications throughout the series that the world outside the Aperture Science complex poses more danger to Chell than the tests endlessly invented by the murderous AI GLaDOS inside.

Added DiffLines:

** They have Repulsion and Propulsion Gel, which were intended as diet aids, and could be used as, say, engine lubrication or shock padding. Third verse, same as the first.

Added DiffLines:

** Aperture has a massive automated complex in the abandoned mines under Cleveland. Just the logistics of building the place boggle the mind, much less operation, and would require considerable expertise. They used it for testing.

* ''[[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=].]]
