In Pacific Rim, the voice of GladOS from Portal can be heard (whether it was in the Gipsy Danger Jäger or the Hong Kong facility, I can't remember). Del Toro said he was a great fan and it was a wink to the video game.

In the Shape of Water, I'm almost certain I have recognized the voice of the Portal facility being used again as the voice of the Baltimore research facility. I don't think I have seen it confirmed anywhere (I haven't spent hours searching though).

Is there really no other connection to Portal than Del Toro being a fan? The repetition of this easter egg makes me thing there might be more to it.

    Del Toro said he was a great fan and it was a wink to the video game. What makes you think there was much more to it than that? It's not unheard of – JAD Mar 12 '18 at 13:30
  • GLaDOS' voice actress also narrates one of the Pacific Rim 2 trailers, which threw me when I first heard it because I'd forgotten she was in Pacific Rim 1. – F1Krazy Mar 12 '18 at 14:06

I doesn't seem to be any other connection besides Del Toro being a fan and using the same voice actress in these movies.
