* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Ronan the Accuser]] is a genocidal Kree terrorist and renegade wholly devoted to the destruction of the planet of Xandar. Disgusted by his people signing a peace treaty, Ronan is introduced to the audience by confronting a captive member of Xandar's Nova Corps and crushing the helpless man's skull with his Universal Weapon. Beginning the film as a henchman of the [[GreaterScopeVillain Mad Titan Thanos]], Ronan seeks to gather an item for Thanos so that he will destroy Xandar for him. Under Thanos, Ronan has committed multiple murders, including the deaths of Drax the Destroyer's wife and children. He later pursues the film's motley band of heroes to the space prison The Kyln, and orders a full massacre of every prisoner to leave no witnesses. When he realizes the power of the Infinity Stone he has been sent to retrieve, Ronan [[TheStarscream double crosses Thanos]] and vows to kill him after he's finished with Xandar. Assaulting the planet, he even orders his own men to become suicide bombers by flying their ships into Xandar, injuring and killing numerous civilians. He later kills over 80,000 members of the Nova Corps in one fell swoop. [[note]][[https://pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/guardians-of-the-galaxy-kills-wm1.pdf Proof]][[/note]]After mocking Drax about [[ButForMeItWasTuesday finally remembering murdering his family]], he declares Xandar "guilty" by his psychotic philosophy and attempts to purge it of all life. Brutal, violent, relentless and unforgiving, Ronan stands as an example of rage, fanaticism, unchecked hatred and utter cruelty, and really stands out in such a relatively [[VileVillainSaccharineShow light-hearted movie]].

** The whole cast corresponds very well to the main cast of ''Series/{{Farscape}}, with a wise-cracking pop-culture quoting male lead transported from Earth to another galaxy against his will (Quill, Crichton), his black-clad ActionGirl love interest formerly working for the bad guys (Aeryn, Gamora), the big manly warrior dude (Drax, D'Argo), the small, self-centered HotBlooded alien creature (Rocket, Rygel), and the nonhuman NiceGuy (Groot, Pilot). Taken further when one considers the addition of two later-date members to the team -[[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 Mantis]] and Chiana as the quirky non-human alien girl who gets ShipTease with the crew's respective [[HugeGuyTinyGirl big guy]], and Yondu and Bialar Crais as the [[BeardOfEvil bearded]] former antagonist who eventually [[HeelFaceTurn joins the crew]] and [[spoiler: performs a HeroicSacrifice.]] It's quite possibly intentional, as James Gunn confessed to being a big fan of ''Farscape'', and he even gave Ben Browder a cameo in the sequel (!)

* CartharsisFactor: Let's face it, Ronan being destroyed with ''sheer'' prejudice by the level of brutality he wanted to inflict on Xandar. After seeing him preach violence and genocide and commit countless murders, it's just so ''gratifying'' to see the most despicable being in the film pay for his bloodshed.

* SpecialEffectFailure: After Yondu uses his Yaka Arrow near the climax against a group of Sakaarans, their Necrocraft smashes into the ground. The explosion itself looks fine, but it's obviously just composited into the practically shot stuff in the foreground.

* BrokenBase:
** The involvement of James Gunn at all, after some internet bloggers uncovered his year-old "50 Superheroes people want to sleep with" list, which was filled with controversial comments. Gunn has since apologized for the comments, stating that he no longer thinks such things are funny, but people are genuinely split on it, either making him a horrible person who shouldn't be directing, or thinking it's just some jokes that got taken out of proportion.
** Even ignoring that, however, the fact that his past credits include writing for Creator/{{Troma}} and the loathed ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movies, as well as the mixed reception to ''Film/{{Super}}'' (and the horrendous reception to ''Film/{{Movie 43}}''), led some people to question his worthiness to be directing for Marvel. Conversely, there are plenty of people who loved ''Super'' as well as his earlier film ''Film/{{Slither}}'' who are looking forward to the film primarily because of his involvement.
** There are those who ''love'' the [[RuleOfFunny sense of humor]] showcased in the trailer, whereas others are less enthusiastic.
** [[spoiler:Peter's "dance off" distraction to keep Ronan confused]] for a brief moment [[MoodWhiplash during the film's climax]] is either very funny or awkward and displaced.
