* AdaptationalJerkass: Though he eventually learns the error of his ways, Star-Lord starts off as a self-serving outlaw and a bit of an asshole. This is in contrast to his comic counterpart, who was a seasoned cosmic superhero long before joining the Guardians.



** Though he eventually learns the error of his ways, Star-Lord starts off as a self-serving outlaw and a bit of an asshole. This is in contrast to his comic counterpart, who was a seasoned cosmic superhero long before joining the Guardians. It's really more of an Adaptational [[AntiHero Anti-Heroism]] situation if anything.

* DanceOff: Subverted and PlayedForLaughs. Peter Quill challenges Ronan to a dance off at the film's climax. Ronan, being a hostile alien, has no idea what Quill is on about and regards the challenge with confusion. This doesn't stop Quill from continuing to dance until his people can attack.

[[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's 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.

** 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 Kree 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.
