* An OffscreenMomentOfAwesome for the Kree during ComicBook/SecretInvasion. Peter Quill goes to warn them about the Skrulls, who've upgraded their shapeshifting technique and are more dangerous than ever, with all the potential superpowers of Earth at their command. Peter infiltrates Hala, and finds... that the Kree have already seen through the Skrull's infiltration and killed them all. For Earth, the Secret Invasion was a world shaking event. For the Kree, who've been fighting the Skrulls for millennia, it's just another day at the office. They didn't even think it was worth telling anyone, it was that routine.

* Rocket gives an AxCrazy BadassBoast to all of the prisoners in the Kyln after his buddy Groot reduces a massive, bullying convict to a sniveling heap, who [[PrisonRape has given his rather... disturbing welcoming speech]] to Peter.

* Rocket charging at Ronan after [[spoiler:Groot's death.]] He was initially terrified of the Infinity Stone alone and when Ronan got his hands on it his plan was to literally get as far away as possible. After [[spoiler:Groot's sacrifice]] though Rocket is willing to attack Ronan head on and unarmed. Granted it fails, but it was cool to see someone not cowering in terror of Ronan once he had reached the surface.

Keep in mind, the ''Dark Aster'' is this big bulky ship that's nearly a mile wide, while the Nova Pilots' ships are roughly twice as big as a standard cockpit... but together, even with their barrier straining at the seams, they held fast and slowed the ''Dark Aster'' to an aerial crawl.

* One for the villain: in rapid succession, first Quill[[note]]via Rocket-designed {{BFG}} to-the-face[[/note]] - then Rocket[[note]]via Ravager starship [[RammingAlwaysWorks to-the-face]][[/note]] - and finally the surface of Xandar[[note]]via [[ExpospeakGag lithobraking]]... [[RuleOfThree to-the-face]][[/note]] make very creditable attempts to reduce Ronan to a greasy stain. How invulnerable ''is'' this guy?

[[caption-width-right:350:"We're the Guardians of the Galaxy."]]
* The movie's introduction. We're treated to a TearJerker backstory, then jump forward 26 years to a longcoat-wearing badass traversing a mysterious world. Upon entering some ruins he removes his helmet, putting on some familiar headphones revealing him to be a grown-up Peter. And then....he starts dancing to "Come and Get Your Love" -- grabbing a lizard and using it as a microphone, no less -- showing us this will be a ''fun'' movie.

** It's also been suggested that this scene represents something of a BadassBoast by Marvel, to wit: [[spoiler:the company did so poorly with films based on its properties until the turn of the century that for quite a while the 1986 ''Howard'' film was their best known one, with its status as ''the'' iconic bad comic book adaptation until it was dethroned by ''BatmanAndRobin''. After so long as a source of shame for Marvel, with the monstrous success of the MCU they now get to say "We're so big that we could even do ''this'' if we wanted."]]

** [[https://twitter.com/brettwhite/status/366999192016662528 DC/WB is all like "Wonder Woman's too confusing for a movie!" and Marvel/Disney is all like "Here's a raccoon with a machine gun."]] (Averted when it was announced that Wonder Woman would be getting [[Film/WonderWoman2017 a movie of her own]], though.)

** That scene is great for two reasons: it's framed almost like a JackKirby panel, and it features [[spoiler:an actual Celestial from the comics, namely Eson the Searcher, one of the most dynamic-looking Celestials]].
