* 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.

Added DiffLines:
** [[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?]]

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

Added DiffLines:
*** 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?]]

Memetic Sex God has been cut per TRS. All wicks will be deleted.
* MemeticBadass: The Adventure Core. Also something of a MemeticSexGod, due to his claims of having a black belt in ''everything,'' including [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Bedroom.]] In fandom, he's typically portrayed as being an AnythingThatMoves guy, being too confident in his own masculinity to really give a crap about the gender of the other.

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the taunt Wheatley gives for making you jump down the pit is the supposed pony farm he has down there. If only Valve knew of a certain PeripheryDemographic of a certain [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic cartoon show]] that suddenly was popular about the time of the game's release...

** Oracle Turret for the "different" turret you can save from the Redemption Line, since everything it says is {{Foreshadowing}}, though this comes from the developers.

* {{Fan Hater}}s: Portal 2 being the memetic game it is, it's no surprise that people have begun posting quotes from each character on videos featuring the actors in the game (i.e. Stephen Merchant and J.K. Simmons), much to the annoyance of people who haven't played the game.

* EvenBetterSequel: In the first game, the most emotional sequence besides the boss battle is [[spoiler: dropping a box down a hole.]] In Portal 2? We've got so many characters introduced and developed, that it's practically a different world entirely.
