Game Theory: Portal's Companion Cube has a Dark Secret

154890 ratings | 10284158 views
Portal's Companion Cube is perhaps one of gaming's most memorable and lovable characters (items?). But is the Companion Cube another cruel test set up by GLaDOS? What sinister secret is hidden behind the Companion Cube's cute pink hearts? Like most other things in Portal, the cube may be more than meets the eye...

NOTE. The sound that contains 'help me' ACTUALLY comes from Portal 1, when you fizzle the radio. And yes, I did that multiple times.

Why hasn't Matpat made another theory on Portal? Is it because a joke made by Syy (top 10 bullsh*t portal theories) actually wanted people to make it real?

What if Rattman was bisexual or pansexual?

Harry 101UK works for portal. He threw in a hint to this in meet the cores 3. Brains. They put brains into robots and computers. The cube is a AI that has a brain shoved inside.

This theroy is completlely destroyed when you realize that Portal 2 has a map creator and you can toss a companion cube threw a grid and nothing would come out.
Raynebow 2000 (18 days ago)
I have one thing that goes against this!! (Nice theory though and I'm late) if you remember this is the cube that GLaDOS drops in the room with you and disintegrates twice Sorry if I'm wrong And sorry for being late
Bedside Killer (19 days ago)
Best thing is the “CC” was made kinda as a science project to see if people would take interest in it... *SO* *THEY* *MADE* *YOU* *KILL* *IT*
Red Flame (19 days ago)
I was watching a video about the beta of portal 2 and it mentioned that if you look in the scripts for the game you can find that when Cave Johnson was the antagonist he was put in to a robot then after you murdered him you would you his dead body as a companion cube thus kind of conforming this theory

9:35 I love the fact that you used the Sonic CD boss music for this point. (the English version) XD that made it really eerie but it was so cool. Huge Sonic CD fan

Mat pat the cube in portal 2 if you listen to it sings and says thank you
Aiden James (23 days ago)
No, the developers would have hinted at it more than simple things like that. The reason the particle grid was broken was so that you could bring the cube with you. Glados was using the words there because she thought Chell had an attachment to the cube. It's a weighted storage cube with a heart on it. That was even the intention in the early stages of that level, except testers forgot about the cube, so they added a gag to help players remember to bring it with them.

Matt should make a video on his own evolution.
spens nolastname (25 days ago)
You can put the cubes through the emancipation grills in the level editor thing. Also if you make another portal video I will resub to your channel and watch the ads on every video you make from now on.

I only just thought of this. What if GLADOS said the whole thing about how the cube was going to say 'I love you' just to toy with our feelings

I really don't think there is anything sinister behind the companion cube. Don't forget in Portal 2 she vaporized several of them so that shows there can't be human remains inside. Occam's razor tells us this is just a weighted storage cube with pink hearts on it.
