* AdaptationalVillainy: Wheatley comes off worse due to the fact that his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment from TheStinger is cut. The DarkReprise of "Suddenly Wheatley" in the 2017 production further cements this.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Wheatley comes off worse due to the fact that his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment from TheStinger is cut. He also seems far more in control of his actions, unlike in the game where it was implied his FaceHeelTurn was due to the mainframe corrupting him. Thus, Wheatly comes off as someone who ''never'' had Chell's best interests at heart and was just using her to get what he wants. The DarkReprise of "Suddenly Wheatley" in the 2017 production further cements this.



* InsultComic: Wheatley does a bit of this in "Why Can't the Subjects," cracking jokes about Black Mesa and humans in general. The other Cores find him hilarious. Chell does not. It serves as subtle {{Foreshadowing}} that Wheatley may not have Chell's best interests at heart.
