Master Chief vs GLaDOS

Master Chief vs GLaDOS (Portal)

Well, I’d be a liar to say if I knew of GLaDOS before this match. As the antagonist from Portal, she presented both danger and opportunity for the players. So, since I have not played that game at all, I’ll leave it to those who have to answer –

Who would win?

    An immobile and lowly suspended suicidal computer construct whose only known defenses are a poisonous gas (That takes ten minutes to kill an unprotected human) and a single missile launcher that requires three seconds to lock and fire an unguided and impossibly slow missile.

    Oh, did I mention that this computer construct is mentally and structurally unstable, literally falling apart with only the slightest of movements on its behalf?

    Who Came up with this?!

    Praise the Gods, it’s finally happened!
    Here’s what I’m seeing:
    Since GLaDOS is stationary, this battle would have to take place in the Aperture Science Computer Aided Enrichment Center.
    With the easy, employee’s path through the ASCAEC blocked off with unbreakable glass, Master Chief would have to move through the test chambers formerly used by Chell to reach GLaDOS.
    This would be a stretch for the Chief alone as the Center is a test of the mind rather than physical force. Luckily, Cortana could probably solve the puzzles for him while disabling the security systems that allow GLaDOS to observe.
    The Chief would have to use his superior running and jumping ability to get through the Center, since GLaDOS would most likely deny him use of the portal gun were she aware he was coming.
    I think most of the puzzles would be possible for the Chief were he able to jump as high as he does in Halo 3, while gripping the edges of platforms and pulling himself up (which he cannot do only due to game mechanics)
    Cortana would probably have a bit of a mental duel with GLaDOS, but I believe the experience of meeting such a malevolent and intelligent AI would drive Cortana closer to rampancy.
    When the Chief finally did meet GLaDOS, she would probably fire all of the neurotoxins she has immediately, not making the mistake she made with Chell.
    Due to the Chief’s lack of a portal gun, she could fire missiles and machine gun fire throughout the room with no fear of it being redirected at her.
    With these odds, I doubt the Chief will be able to dodge the turrets’ fire AND target GLaDOS, especially considering that she takes multiple hits with a missile to kill.
    So, I say GLaDOS wins this one, but only by a slight margin.

    I agree, this is a terrible match.

    Probably old news, but did anybody else notice GLaDOS looks like a woman in a fetal position?

  5. Thepocalypse February 13, 2009 at 3:26 pm -      #5

    With preparation she could use more turrets. She wasn’t expecting Chell.

    “but I believe the experience of meeting such a malevolent and intelligent AI would drive Cortana closer to rampancy.”

    actually i beleive Cortana already went into (and out of) rampancy. there have been quite a few signs in halo three of her in ramapncy. it is beleived she made it to the ‘fourth’ stage of rampancy.

    MC vs. Glados? What you talkin bout BankGambling?

    Yeah, I think you may be right. She does behave quite erratically in a few parts doesn’t she? I think she’s in that controlled rampancy that Durendal reached.

    “With preparation she could use more turrets. She wasn’t expecting Chell.”

    She wanted Chell to be there.

    The whole Aperture Science maze, the furnace, the “Oops, did a vital part of me just fall off?” was nothing more than a ruse that would ensure Chell’s personal vendetta would guarantee the destruction of the Aperture Science labs and her own freedom.

    Which is the beauty behind Glados as a character, she was simply looking for someone worthy enough to free her, raising her above the archetypal absurdities of the average antagonist.

    Exactly, she allowed herself to be destroyed due to her urge to self destruct.
    Were she in perfect working order and in a mood to kill Master Chief, she could put up a MUCH greater fight. The situation from Portal really can’t be applied to a versus match as it would be like pitting a suicidal depressed man against a murderer. Either way, the depressed man wins, as he achieves his goal of death. This brings up another question, even if MC did get to GLaDOS and destroyed her, does that mean she wins?
    This is a much more interesting battle than people are giving it credit for when you take into account GLaDOS’ mood.

    “Yeah, I think you may be right. She does behave quite erratically in a few parts doesn’t she? I think she’s in that controlled rampancy that Durendal reached.”

    yes the fourth stage of rampancy is where there most “human” i beleive.

    the only A.I. in the halo universe to ever make it there would be

    Cortana.

    and Mendiant Bias. as if you read the terminals he is saying he wants to make up for what he has done and help master chief (how he helps master chief is unknown) and if he was still rampant then he wouldent want to help a reclaimer (as he would still have hate towards the foreunners.)

    All of the images are gone! Every other site is fine, but I can’t see them here, is anyone else having this problem.

  13. L-W February 14, 2009 at 9:51 pm -      #13

    Considering that most of these battles are usually to determine who would still be left standing, I still say that this is a terrible match.

    Manipulating another entity into killing you, when the pretext of almost all of these matches precludes to the fact that all parties are immediately hostile and recognize each other as opponents is still, not impressive.

    I’m actually giving this match too much credit just by even posting, or even looking at it for that matter.

  14. Baron Somebody February 17, 2009 at 5:34 pm -      #14

    Man Admin, Baron Samedi could use a MC vs match…seriously, if this got posted, there’s no reason not to have Baron vs MC lol

  15. Space marine February 17, 2009 at 5:37 pm -      #15

    Yes i also hate matches like these, Tricking one into killing themselves is gay.

  16. marche February 19, 2009 at 6:43 pm -      #16

    lol this is as hopeless as mc vs magneto.

  17. Michael February 21, 2009 at 1:29 pm -      #17

    Why are we assuming MC doesn’t have weapons of his own?

  18. Matapiojo February 21, 2009 at 3:14 pm -      #18

    “Why are we assuming MC doesn’t have weapons of his own?”

    Huh?

  19. Zer0 February 23, 2009 at 3:17 pm -      #19

    Well in all honestly MC would kill in a heart beat. Take in mind that he would first have to get through the maze but with his weapons that would be a simbul task ( can’t spell for crap I know) and then the only thing GLaDOS has is the missle turrent ( gone within seconds ) and the deadly nerotoxin ( but he has a helmet so ya)

    You fail. Weapons don’t solve puzzles, weapons also don’t protect you from acidic floors. And why does everyone assume the missile launcher is all she has?
    As is clearly stated in the dialogue, she’s trying to use the neurotoxin only, but cannot disable the missile defense system. As you can see in the guts of the facility, those little turrets are being constructed within the Enrichment Center and there are already quite a few of them. I’d love to see MC try to get through the large area with the indented turret mounts in one piece.

    This is for everyone who said this battle was stupid. Do the words “Super Attack Mecha” mean nothing? That beast, combined with the multitude of turrets and the mentioned, but not seen androids (fc18.deviantart.com/fs44/f/2009/088/f/d/P0rtal_B0t_by_Populus13.jpg a cool concept) would annihilate the Chief.

  22. marche April 2, 2009 at 9:25 pm -      #22

    that would work if it were canon.

  23. AlphaCommando April 2, 2009 at 11:09 pm -      #23

    Yeah…your sort of forgetting that practically nothing you have said has any canon basis…

  24. Thepocalypse April 3, 2009 at 4:28 am -      #24

    Screw canon. That map pack plays better than the actual game. And she’d still win anyway :)

  25. Sean Black July 28, 2009 at 8:32 pm -      #25

    If the MC wasn’t in GLaDOS’s room to begin with (and had to go through the “maze”) she would win instantly.
    “First however, note the incandescent particle field across the exit.
    This Aperture science emancipation grid will vaporize any unauthorized equipment that passes through it…” -GLaDOS.
    I don’t know about his whole body being emancipated, but all his armor, and any internal metal parts would be instantly vaporized, making him unprotected, weaponless, and with a sufficiently weakened skeletal structure, if any.

    Also note, she didn’t actually die at the end of portal, so the MC could not kill her at the Aperture science learning and enrichment center.
    So, if he started next to “her” , and ripped her apart, he would still have a long journey ahead of him to base 04… “In Base four I’m fine!” -GLaDOS

    If he had Cortana, she would have to overpower a Genetic Life-form and Disc Operating System (which would be the equivalent of hacking and deleting a government protected mass database) just to shut down the emancipation grid.

  26. _1538 October 23, 2009 at 2:41 am -      #26

    Sean Black is right

    and if master chief passes throu one of the vaporizer things he would lose cortana too

  27. ironman July 7, 2010 at 2:55 am -      #27

    well if he was straight in there he could easly destroy GLADOS and her turrents because they may be invincble but a single gavity stroke with gav hammer will knock the turrents down and shut them off oh and peeps who like portal theres a 2nd coming out

  28. OriginalA July 7, 2010 at 4:00 am -      #28

    Sean… you do realise that Base Four is a referance to math. From extensive research (2 minutes on google) Base # pretty much means that you use all of those numbers from 0-9 until you hit the Base #. At the Base # you skip that number and all numbers above it until you hit the next 10s place..

    Base 10 is what is regularly used in basic math.
    1 + 1 = 2
    2 + 2 = 4
    3 + 3 = 6
    3 + 3 + 3 =9
    In Base 4 you skip from the number 4.
    1 + 1 = 2
    2 + 2 = 10
    3 + 3 = 12
    3 + 3 + 3 = 21

    GLADos said “2 + 2 = 10 *beat* IN BASE FOUR! I’M FINE!”
    This is the correct answer to the math problem when calculated in Base 4.

    Base 4 isn’t a physical place. It is a method to count numbers in a specific manner.

  29. Syncourt October 2, 2010 at 3:29 am -      #29

    I just realized…GlaDOS seemed inspired from HAL 9000…

  30. Silent hunter October 19, 2010 at 9:30 am -      #30

    glados will win, when she knows master chief is coming(and she will), all she has to do is activate the “deadly” Nero toxin, and he’s gone in 5 minutes (thats how long chell had)… maybe 15, considering the helmet . and there is no way you can solve test chamber 0-19, without a portal gun, needing to do 2 super jumps, and solve it in 15 minutes

  31. ironman October 31, 2010 at 2:49 am -      #31

    well it says MC vs glados it does’nt say MC vs maze then glados duh + the vaperozier thingy he could just easyliy blow off the wall

  32. ironman October 31, 2010 at 2:51 am -      #32

    oh and slient hunter he’s got 1 hour of freash air duh

  33. Laharl October 31, 2010 at 3:50 am -      #33

    “the vaperozier thingy he could just easyliy blow off the wall”
    Not really, MC doesn’t have the equipment to get through the maze.
    Look at the portal 2 trailers she is in fact very “Still Alive”.

  34. Whatthecell December 13, 2011 at 1:03 pm -      #34

    This match is stupid because it pits Master Chief against Glados, placing him beyond all of her outermost defense and right in the spot where she is most vulnerable. of course she loses this, but you might as well make a match of a normal person with a machine gun against an unsuited Master Chief chained to the wall by his arms and legs.

    If Master Chief was in any other part of the facility it would be nigh impossible for him to even reach Glados (without the portal gun, and he can’t jump 50ft into the air to reach random platforms. Glados on the other hand, as seen in Portal 2, could toy with the Chief in any way she saw fit. In Portal 2, when Chell was escaping, Glados practically brought the whole facility down upon her. Or she could set the Emancipation Grids to ‘emancipate’ the Chief’s brain or something.
