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...

There are killed with neurotoxin people's corps inside all the cubes, according to the secret paintings in game. And that are laboratory workers.

I'm sad you didn't go deeper and mention how it could be the scientists. This would make sense because of her hatred toward them petting her trapped in a machine, and the fact the companion cube had knowledge of the facility to help rat man would further that. Her vengeance would only be fitting if she puts their consciousness in a box. That's what they pretty much did to her.

I’m here reflecting from the future and I have to say this theory is surprisingly poor. I mean his mention of you can’t love more than one sex is kind of you know homophobic in a way it’s bio-phobic that’s not a word but whatever so ha ha no but there are other parts of the theory that are kind of watered down as well for example I could probably just say that the man with the companion cube, the professor, is insane because of that bisexual theory, although I am quite certain that companion cubes are people, and being bisexual could be wrong too.
Anyone watching in 2019???

I like your theory but in portal 2, Glados destroys 3 companion cubes in the way a material emancipation grill would and no bodies come out of any of them.

The one thing you didn't clear up is why? Why would glados do that? She could just burn them but no she put the bodies in a flippin cube! Ps. The cube gets fizzled multible times
Ariana Roblox (1 month ago)
Or maybe they chose that word because they knew the cube would be everyone “brother”

GLaDOS hates humans because Mr Johnson put Caroline/ GLaDOS into a computer because he wanted Caroline to run the place when he is gone Caroline didn’t want that to happen she started to hate Cave Johnson because he did that but when Caroline was GLaDOS she didn’t remember Johnson but she hates human *cough* Johnson

Actually, as you might know, you can take the cube past that barrier in Portal 2, there is an achievement for that. However, shortly after it passes GLaDOS, I believe, makes it disintegrate, all of it. I wonder if with that there is proof that in that certain cube there was no human OR that she maybe purposely disintegrated it all.
nate boureaux (1 month ago)
Kinda feel like this theory is debunked because she literally disintegrates the cubes in front of you and has the same animation as if you were to take a normal cube through an emancipation grill

Test Subject = Has optimized health ie Nutrients, Diet, Environment, Filter Clean Oxygen, Preservative Isolation Chambers etc. Effect = Optimal Body Structure and Senses ie. Physical and Psychological Health, Basic and Instinctual Education, Heightened Survival Instinct, Heightened Hearing(No exposure to loud sounds), Heightened Smell(Clean Oxygen), Heightened Sense of Sight(Can clearly see everything in the rooms). Why are these important? Let's take a look at the Heightened Sense of Smell and look at the companion cube. Still confused? It's just a cube that hypothetically have "human parts" from other test subjects, right? Then, Let's add the word Pheromones. But then wouldn't she smell rotting matter too? Technically yes but take it from the a perspective as a test subject that has never seen a person die nor seen a carcass. You'd only think that it stinks somewhat bad, right? But presuming that the cube is actually airtight wouldn't it make sense that any remote scent that have lingering pheromones be still recognizable to a human who can smell 2-3 folds more than a modern human exposed to pollution, perfumes and other related substances?

I know thi IS a theory, but he says campanion cubes dont fizzle, but GLaDOS fizzles one at the end of Test Chamber 7 in portal 2

10:30, not actually, there is a way to exit the room, AND keep the cube. But when you get to the elevator, it disintegrated leaving nothing. This video shows you how: https://youtu.be/1pgM8lq2Oyo at 5:42
Spyko (2 months ago)
the achivement could be called that because since your crazy you think the cube as your family killing it is the definition of that achievement

TTTY 224 (2 months ago)
all test subjects except Chell are dead before portal 2 takes place when Wheatley wakes you up, and the part where you say the reason the Emancipator grill is off on purpose makes no sense as for why would GLaDOS purposely turn off a grill? She fizzles the companion cubes as well and that's the same as bringing them through a grill, yet no, body...

RoboFox (2 months ago)
I think you are wrong. My proof? 1. GLaDOS fizzles 2 of them at the beginning of that test chamber 2. Just because that's the one room that the emancipation grid is broken ' mean annythin because once you reach the elevator she fizzles it anyways I think that's enough.
