* {{Fanon}}: After the release of ''Portal 2'', it was revealed that [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] was once human]], which naturally made many people believe that all cores were created the same way. It's also believed that Wheatley's [[spoiler:human form]] greatly resembled Stephen Merchant.

* ThatOnePuzzle:
** The final puzzle of the eighth chapter tends to be the only one that completely stumps everyone to the point of having to use a guide. [[spoiler:You have some turrets that you can't easily get behind or past, there are no cubes to take them out, but there is repulsion gel. Up to this point, you usually just had to make a portal to redirect where the gel travels and splash it on the turrets. Here, though, you have to get creative with an excursion funnel...which would be a lot more obvious if its reverse switch wasn't way far and away from the button you have to press to drip out the gel.]] This puzzle also hands down requires the most timed steps out of any puzzle in the game, meaning it's not one that easily runs step-by-step; it's a long sequence of steps that must be done ''in order'' one after the other. And it also doesn't help this chamber also has an achievement inside it that ''requires you to violate some of the established game rules'' to complete it!
** Additionally, some of the in-between sections during the second act can be a real pain, since they require extremely long distances of traveling and tediousness, and are often games of finding that one tiny white dot you can stick a portal onto.

*** It's also interesting to note that [=GLaDOS=] has long ''subverted'' this trope--people love her ''because'' she's crazy and evil, not despite it.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: They did an ''incredible'' job of giving Wheatley so many facial expressions--and he's just a robotic eyeball!
** Hardly surprising it's such a good job, though- the character animator for Wheatley when he's a core is none other than [[http://www.karenprell.com Karen Prell]], a Muppeteer and the performer and voice behind Red Fraggle.

* {{Narm}}: GLaDOS's scream of agony [[spoiler:while she's being forcibly ripped from the control center by machines]] is supposed to be scary and shocking, and for many it is... but the thing about her voice is that when she screams in agony, it sounds like she's an overly-autotuned singer.

** [[spoiler:What if Cave Johnson is actually a freaking genius and natural/scientific philosopher, and the rest of the world (especially Black Mesa, who practically ended the world) is instead floundering in the gaping maw of madness?]]

** Considering such achievements don't actually happen accidentally, what if [[WhamLine the players and everyone else are the insane ones?]]

*** The exact nature of his stupidity as well. [[spoiler: Is his ability to come up with decently clever plans because they will result in the dumbest outcome, the facility exploding? Or is he just another Aperture Science invention that doesn't work the way it is supposed?]]
