* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Wheatley has this reaction when he realizes that the [[spoiler:core-transfer]] is probably going to be ''really'' painful.

** In the last chapters of the game, the test chambers start featuring excursion funnels. Which wouldn't clash with the ambient mood [[spoiler:of desperate urgency (since the player has found out that Wheatley's negligence is going to result in a nuclear meltdown and every second probably counts) if the excursion funnel music didn't sound like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAQOZENg7W8 this]].]]

** The space core, being the first one you [[spoiler:shove into Wheatly]] could be a subtle way of saying "Press space to jump on the blue gel".

* YourSizeMayVary: The cover for the Original Sound Track depicts [=GLaDOS=] as being far larger than she actually is - the diameter of her ''eye'' is almost the size of a human.

** You get the dual portal device from the bottom of the fire pit where [=GLaDOS=] tried to kill you in the first game. Assuming that not all test subjects were as GenreSavvy as Chell, it seems the portal gun really ''can'' survive temperatures of up to 4000 degrees Kelvin.

* GenreSavvy:
** Wheatley [[spoiler: becomes DangerouslyGenreSavvy in several ways after he takes control of the facility]]. He's still an idiot, though.
** [[spoiler:After [=GLaDOS=] regains control of the facility she decides to let you go. Her reasoning is that she's sick of trying to kill you, and bad things happen to any AI that tries to kill you.]]
** Aperture Science itself gets a nod: in the lower levels they have signs urging employees to watch out for [[NoOSHACompliance OSHA inspectors]] and, later, instructing them to know their [[LogicBomb paradoxes]] in case of a [[AIIsACrapshoot rogue AI]]. [[HeroicMime Too bad you're mute]] and the AI in question [[TooDumbToFool isn't smart enough to see the paradox.]]



* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler:Wheatley]] goes out of his way to anticipate every possible point of failure during the FinalBoss fight. Being an idiot, he [[BossArenaIdiocy misses some key elements]], but what elevates it to a Xanatos Gambit -- and his crowning moment of being DangerouslyGenreSavvy -- is that he is just smart enough to anticipate the possibility that Chell could ''win''. The only things that stop him from being victorious are Chell's status as a {{Determinator}} and a ChekhovsGun he could not possibly have known about.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: At the start of the FinalBattle, [[spoiler:Wheatley]] reflects on the ''[[VideoGame/{{Portal}} first game's]]'' boss battle, and more particularly, how things are changing. [[spoiler:This doesn't stop him from making his own foolish mistakes, though.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Wheatley:''']] Four-part plan is this: One, no portal surfaces. Two, start the neurotoxin immediately. Three, bomb-proof shields for me, leading directly into number four: bombs. For throwing at ''you''.\\

* EldritchLocation: Doug Rattman thinks so in the tie-in comic, ''Lab Rat''.
-->'''Rattman:''' [It's an] impossibility, some mad architect’s opus — a relic from an age that never could have been. [...] Beautiful and terrible — and like anything cloned from a cancer cell, probably immortal.

** Cave Johnson was fatally poisoned by lunar dust. Lunar dust really is a horribly abrasive substance that will kill you if you inhale too much- The symptoms you hear in his recording even resemble the effects of silicosis, which is very similar to the effects of exposure to lunar dust.
