* 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 [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced to the audience]] by confronting a captive member of Xandar's Nova Corps, [[YourHeadAsplode crushing the helpless man's skull]] with his [[DropTheHammer Universal Weapon]], and [[BloodBath bathing in his blood]]. Beginning the film as a henchman of the [[GreaterScopeVillain Mad Titan]] ComicBook/{{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 daughter. 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. 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 [[KnightOfCerebus really stands out]] in such a relatively [[VileVillainSaccharineShow light-hearted movie]].

* FandomRivalry: With ''Film/{{Suicide Squad|2016}}'' with the latter seen as mimicking ''Guardians'' by centering around a group of lesser-known cult comic book anti-heroes who become TrueCompanions while battling a world-ending threat, all set to a contemporary, rock n' roll soundtracks. ''Guardian'' fans' attitude towards ''Squad'' is summed up pretty well in [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/80188/guardians-of-the-galaxy-vs-suicide-squad this comic]]

** On a meta level, James Gunn was very vocal on his dislike of TheScrappy from his time on writing the Fracnhise/ScoobyDoo movies, and it seems rather ironic one of the biggest movies of his career would then involve "a small feisty talking animal that some people think his company is shoving down their throats".

** This movie features a raccoon[[note]]Albeit he denies that he's a raccoon[[/note]] who works as a master thief. And he's voiced by a guy whose [[Creator/BradleyCooper last name is Cooper]]. [[Franchise/SlyCooper Why does that sound familiar]]?

** Groot is an inarticulate, dangerous but kind-hearted giant who's voiced by Creator/VinDiesel and [[spoiler: sacrifices his life to save his friends from an explosion but is revealed to have survived at the last minute]]. [[Film/TheIronGiant sound familiar?]].

** Star-Lord's BadassLongcoat from the below-mentioned SignatureScene. He ''only'' wears it during the opening sequence, donning a short jacket for the rest of the film, but nearly every piece of merch, video game appearance, and [[CanonImmigrant even his costume in the comic books]] has him sporting the trench coat.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: WordOfGod has explained the "sex crime" on Quill's rap sheet comes from him having an affair with a duchess on a planet where it is illegal for commoners and nobility to interact in such a way, to make it clear that our main character is ''not'' a rapist.
