** When planning a prison break, Rocket suggests that Gamora use the fact that a number of the male prisoners find her attractive to broker a "trade" of some sort for an item he needs. Her reply of "You must be joking." is answered with "No, I really heard they find you attractive."

* ShoutOut:
** The opening, with Peter Quill stealing the Orb, borrows heavily from the opening sequence in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** Peter's laser pistols bear more than a passing resemblance to the Covenant Plasma Rifle from ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', or also the laser pistols from ''Film/TheBlackHole'' (1979).
** The Hadron enforcer looks like a larger, blockier version of the Bio Rifle from ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament3''.
** Several are direct nods to the pop culture that young Peter would have been exposed to as a child of the late 1980s, prior to his abduction from Earth:
*** Peter calls Ronan's necro-soldiers "[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Ninja Turtles]]".
*** In prison, Peter states the Orb has a "[[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk Ark of the Covenant]], [[Film/KissMeDeadly glowing briefcase]], [[Film/TheMalteseFalcon Maltese Falcon-esque]] vibe."
*** Peter initially calls Groot "Literature/TheGivingTree", and later refers to Rocket as "Ranger Rick", after the raccoon mascot of the children's magazine of the same name.
*** Peter's ship is named for TheEighties actress Alyssa Milano. [[note]] ... who, according to WordOfGod, was Peter Quill's childhood crush.[[/note]]
*** Peter gets Gamora to listen to some of his music by telling her of the Earth legend ''Film/{{Footloose}}'', and the great hero Creator/KevinBacon. (Bacon also starred in James Gunn's ''Film/{{Super}}'').
** A quote borrowed from ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders'': "Shoot them before they hit the ground!"
** Upon being marched into the Kyln, Gamora, Rocket, Peter, and Groot recreate the AbbeyRoadCrossing.
** Ronan's comlink to Thanos on the ''Dark Aster'' displays as a HugeHolographicHead, similar to a scene in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and another in ''Film/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz''.
** In MCU's typical fashion of Easter eggs to other Marvel comics books, when Peter tries to sell the orb to the Broker, you can see [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Staff of One]] among items in his store.

* MythologyGag:
** During the [[FreezeFrameBonus line up scene]], the data stream for each character lists numerous incidents that happened to them in the comics that ''Guardians'' is based on.
*** Rocket Raccoon being from Halfworld in the Keystone Quadrant, and Lylla being listed as one of his associates. He's also an expert in escaping from custody; in the comics, he was created specifically to be a guard at a maximum security insane asylum and ''stop'' escapes.
*** Gamora being the last of her kind.
*** Peter having an affair with an intergalactic duchess that her parents were none too happy about.
*** Groot's homeworld being listed as "X".
** Peter's red-skinned one-night-stand is [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Bereet_(Earth-616) Bereet]], an alien ex-lover of ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk from the comics.
** "Morag", the name of a Kree historical person from the comics, is the name of a planet in the film.
** The named members of the Nova Corps include Rhomann Dey, the Nova Prime who recruits Richard Rider as the first Human Nova, and Gaarthan Saul, who would go on to become the villainous Supernova in the comics.
** Rhomann Dey's rank in the Nova Corps is Denerrian, one of the actual (and lesser known) ranks in the Corps in the comics.
** In the comics, Yondu was a founding member of the original Guardians of the Galaxy from the 1970s, which was a precursor to the 2000s incarnation led by Peter Quill. In the movie, Yondu is not affiliated with the Guardians, but his role as Quill's mentor and adopted father parallels the classic series' relationship with the modern series.
** Rocket and Cosmo growling at each other in reference to their [[SitcomArchNemesis interactions]] in the comics.
** The Other tells Ronan that Thanos has sources within Kyln who revealed that Gamora planned to betray him and take The Orb for herself. This is a reference to Moloka Dar, the bald and mean prisoner of Kyln who tries to kill Gamora and whose knife is taken by Drax. In the comics, Moloka was a former prisoner of Kyln who helps Thanos by giving him information.
** The Celestial [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Eson_the_Searcher Eson the Searcher]] appears in one of the Collector's holograms wielding an Infinity Stone.
** [[spoiler:Adam Warlock's regenerative cocoon]] also appears in the Collector's shop. [[spoiler:Those who paid careful attention in the Howard the Duck scene will notice that the cocoon has hatched.]]
** While her name isn't mentioned in the film itself, Nova Prime is Irani Rael, a member of the Nova Corps who was recruited after the Annihilation Wave struck Xandar.
** The comics feature the Krees as consisting of two racial colors, the "blue-skinned" and the "pink-skinned", with the pinks always depicted as being identical in appearance to white-skinned Earth people (and so easily able to infiltrate Earth). The film features several pink colored humans, but here they all look nothing like any skin tone that exists on Earth.

[[SpannerInTheWorks However, the relic has already been looted from its hiding place]] by Peter Quill (Creator/ChrisPratt), ''a.k.a.'' "ComicBook/StarLord", an outlaw and thief abducted from Earth as a child. This Earthling knows nothing of the relic's nature - he's been raised by SpacePirates and simply wants to sell the artifact off. He goes behind the back of the pirate chief Yondu and takes the relic to Xandar, where he's set upon by the bounty hunters [[TheNapoleon Rocket]] (Creator/BradleyCooper) and [[GentleGiant Groot]] (Creator/VinDiesel) and Thanos' pet assassin [[DefectorFromDecadence Gamora]] (Creator/ZoeSaldana). After this RagtagBandOfMisfits ends up flung into a maximum security prison with [[TheBigGuy Drax the Destroyer]] ([[Wrestling/{{Batista}} Dave Bautista]]), their mutual self-interest pits them against the Nova Corps, the Ravagers, and Ronan's relentless pursuit... and unexpectedly turns them into saviors.

Far off, in the depths of the Milky Way, the expansionist Kree Empire has reluctantly made peace with the planet Xandar. But one of the most vicious and powerful Kree warlords, Ronan the Accuser, [[YouKilledMyFather still has vengeance on his mind.]] He goes behind his government's back and strikes a pact with one of the most dreaded beings in the galaxy, Thanos the Mad Titan. In exchange for [[MockGuffin a certain ancient relic,]] the Mad Titan will grant Ronan's one wish: genocide.
