* 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]], though he does get one comical moment when Peter [[spoiler:challenges him to a dance off, which gets him easily distracted because it makes no sense]].

** Despite having only a brief appearance Thanos has generated two opposing first impressions. Is he an all-powerful master schemer that the loss of the stones and the betrayals and failures of his underlings is beneath his attention, or an overconfident, out-of-touch fool who cannot keep his underlings from betraying him?

If the ending of Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron is of any indication it may be that Ronan's betrayal was the last straw which led him to go on a ruthless quest to get the Infinity Stones himself.

* MagnumOpus: For James Gunn. The film is already on track to becoming his highest grossing film and has received [[http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/guardians_of_the_galaxy/ substantially]] positive reviews. It also is the frontrunner for the Magnum Opus of Marvel's Phase 2 and a contender for the Magnum Opus of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.

Isn't it stated in the film that many of those traits are species-wide?
** These two [[http://comicsalliance.com/guardians-galaxy-psychology-analyisis-trauma/ items of interest list off]] [[http://www.tickld.com/x/something-you-never-realized-about-guardians-of-the-galaxy that Drax displays many signs of autism.]]

This isn't YMMV
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Rocket is a bit of a grumpy JerkAss however Oreo, the raccoon who Rocket was modeled on, is probably the sweetest, cuddliest, and friendliest raccoon that exists in real life (just look at the Oreo and Friends facebook, twitter, or instagram pages).

** Drax's specific design and back-story (while iconic with the character) has led to many comparisons with [[Franchise/GodOfWar Kratos]], while his LiteralMinded behavior has reminded a few of Literature/AmeliaBedelia.

** If you listen carefully, you'll notice that Nebula's voice sounds a little bit tinny and robotic. It's a subtle hint that she's more parts machine than she is an organic being.
