Depending on the player's progress in the game, unique animations are displayed in the home menu to show this, but only a few can be shown at a time. They can be unlocked by completing levels, and Unlockable Levels.

Story Mode Animations

Unlockable Level Animations

Year 1

NOTE: There is also another Portal 2 Menu animation featuring Chell just on her own by completing the same level.


  • Year 2 Level Packs and Story Packs do not unlock any Home Menu Animations.
  • Only the Story Mode Animations play on the main menu of the game as of the most recent update for the game. This is caused by unknown reasons.
