Unique A.I.

I think it's worth mentioning that Wheatley's "unique" mind so "uniqie" so he is only known A.I. who got resistance to paradoxes, unlike GladOS, turrets and even Frankenturrets. --Comrade Suhov 15:18, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Unique in the sense that he's stupid yes. I see his personality isn't well explained in the article, someone should elaborate. MUser Moussekateer signature portal.pngussekateer·talk 15:21, 8 May 2011 (UTC)


Portal2 Wheatley Boss.png Don't you think, guys, that this picture is spoiler, even without description? Maybe script will automaticly hide spoiler images?

The picture is already marked as a spoiler, just flick the sploiler button and it becomes blacked-out. - RJUser RJackson Pixelturret.png talk 11:13, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Everything is a spoiler, can we have less spoilers?

Spoilers are needed so people playing the game for the first time don't spoil the experience by looking anything up on here. If you don't want them, press the little wheatley at the top of the page and they'll all be uncovered.

Its called an 'Epilogue'. Seriously, I can't believe someone needed to be corrected on this... The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kotodama1 (talk) • (contribs) 07:41, 24 June 2011

Well I'm a native English speaker, and I just had to google the difference; thanks for signing up and fixing it :D - RJUser RJackson Pixelturret.png talk 08:10, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm not native english RJ, but I know Pro means before... :3 Latin root isn't something you can understand ? Tturbo 20:40, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Official Personality Test Info

The official Aperture Science Collaborative Disposition Test describes Wheatley as:

“Funny, high-strung, a bit of a motor-mouth-these are the words people would use to describe you when they’re not telling you to shut up. Your ideal cooperative test partners include people who won’t mind you bumbling around breaking things while they do all the work."

I'm not sure what section this information best goes under, so I'll just leave it here for now. - MewtwoWarrior 02:35, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

This information is now found at the Collaborative Disposition Test page. - MewtwoWarrior 23:06, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Exact replica = human?

"Throughout the Portal 2 chapter The Escape, he reveals that he has a disliking for working with humans; accusing them of "nepotism" simply because the staff gave out the jobs he preferred to other humans."

The exact quote is "I almost got a job down here in Manufacturing. But, uh, guess who the foreman went with? Only an exact duplicate of himself. Nepotism." To me, that doesn't say "humans giving the job to other humans," it says "the programmers jokingly using the word 'nepotism' to mean 'robotic foreman gave the job to a literal exact replica."

I think Wheatley is smart enough to know the difference between humans. Mortimermcmirestinks (talk) 11:16, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

You're right, the story is clearly about a robot foreman and humans are never bought into it. MUser Moussekateer signature portal.pngussekateer·talk 11:46, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

In Portal 2, Wheately and Chell go into the production line part of Aperture. Wheatley clearly states that GLaDOS can't touch you down here. Then, Chell and Wheatley shut down the neurotoxin generator AND the turret production line. GLaDOS is the central core, she couldn't touch us down at neurotoxin/turret line, so how does Wheatley, the central core after Chell initiates a core transfer, get the neurotoxin/turret production line back online after Chell and Wheately shut it down?

Pictogram plus.png Support The article is elaborate enough to be a good thing, although not as good as GLaDOS (obviously). I support

How was he the only one "normal" when the facility shut down?.

Everyone knows after the events of portal 1 GLaDOS was dead and everything was destroyed. After it was destroyed, a backup system woke up random cores and gave them random jobs to maintain the facility since there was no central core anymore. Of course Wheatley was one of the cores, and we know some cores were corrupt and didn't do their jobs, but surely there were at least a few other cores who weren't corrupt and did their jobs like Wheatley? Why was he the only one that was "normal?" To me, it doesn't make sense that ALL of the cores activated except Wheatley were corrupt. Anyone have any answers, theories or suggestions? --SaturnCublix 03:12, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

I think the other "normal" cores are doing their tasks in the background, and Wheatley was (unfortunately) the one assigned to tend the humans. Cores seems to have a responsibility to multitask, as evidenced by how Wheatley was able to operate the Enrichment Center's multiple core receptacles, so I guess he was given a job to take care that part of the facility, and other cores elsewhere. ~ Headquarter8302 03:12, 17 April 2022 (UTC)
Probably,after GLaDOS woke up again, the other cores were scared and hid somewhere which is why we never saw any cores like wheatley... --SaturnCublix

The end of the game mistake + animations with Wheatley still having his handles in the mainframe just caused a plot fault that must be fixed

"When Wheatley is transferred into GLaDOS' body, his handles are removed. Oddly, when Wheatley is being sucked into space, the handles suddenly reappear despite still being connected to the main frame. This maybe an unintended story fault that the developers doesn't notice while developing the game'

This has caused a storywise plot break that must be fixed, or it will destroy how Wheatley appearance in the mainframe, and how he looks like in space. BTW, people STILL get him wrong in SFM animations where he has handles when he is on the mainframe. This is common is Harry101UK animations with Mainframe Wheatley in it (except for the wheatley song). Why couldn't they make it consistent? --SaturnCublix

Anyone ever notice that Wheatley says "lift" for almost the entire game, but when he tries to trick Chell into jumping into the pit, he says "elevator", even though he sounds british
