The Animal King is an enormous Sentry Turret introduced in the first Portal 2 chapter, The Courtesy Call.

Overview

The Animal King first appears in the "Animal King Takeover" public service announcement slideshow when the Announcer is about to give advice about what to do when Earth is being taken over by an "animal king, sentient cloud, or other governing body that either refuses to or is incapable of listening to reason", before he is cut short.

In the slideshow, the Animal King, appearing as a gigantic Turret covered with a leopard skin-patterned texture and wearing a crown, drops into a large amphitheater and opens, causing people to either flee, bow to it, or get crushed by falling podiums.

The Animal King appears again in the back of the amphitheater during the Turret Opera at the very end of the game, where it is shown to be playing the deeper bass tones of the opera.

Trivia

  • A smaller version of the Animal King, minus the crown, can be seen in one Aperture Investment Opportunity #3.
  • "Animal King" is a registered trademark of Aperture Science, copyrighted 1998.
  • The room in which the Animal King appears is reminiscent of the United Nations General Assembly hall at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
