* PokemonSpeak: As with his entire species, he can only say three words: "I am Groot". It’s only subverted in ‘’Origins’’ when he and all the other Groots say, "We are Groot". He also talks in his segment in the Black Vortex arc (with everybody else saying "I am [name]").

* MythologyGag: It puts Drax in a version of Franchise/SpiderMan's life with J'Son standing in for J. Jonah Jameson. Additionally, the "origin" given for Draxman is based on that of [[TruerToTheText the comic book Drax]], including Drax being a human from Earth named Arthur Douglas who was killed (directly) by Thanos and resurrected into Drax and his "Draxman" costume being based on Drax's original outfit in the comics.

An ancient, full-length mirror that acts as the gateway to a PrisonDimension.

* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: In the comics, the Black Vortex was an [[MadeOfIndestructium indestructible]] [[AmplifierArtifact artifact that can grant cosmic power to those who submit to it]].

* BigDamnFireExit: With the Collector's ship about to [[SelfDestructMechanism explode]] and the Guardians piloting it as far from Hala as possible, the Black Vortex is used by the heroes as a last-resort emergency escape. Despite not knowing what awaits them inside the Vortex, the Guardians decide that it would still be better than dying. After the Collector's ship explodes, the Black Vortex is the only thing that survives intact, giving the Guardians a chance to survive if they can escape the Vortex itself.



* PhantomZone: By scanning the minds of its occupants, the Black Vortex can create various environments and creatures that can be interacted with, whether pleasant or (more often) deadly. Natural laws can change as well, which could result in ToonPhysics and other surreal effects. As a result, the Guardians of the Galaxy have several improbable adventures within the Black Vortex in their quest to escape its clutches.

!!The Black Vortex
->Voiced by: Audrey Wasilewski, Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson (while possessing Groot) (English)
An ancient, full-length mirror that acts as the gateway to a PrisonDimension.

Here, it acts as the gateway to a PrisonDimension that [[PhantomZone changes according to the minds of its occupants]].
* ArtifactOfDoom: It has its own evil sentience which desires to escape the artifact and conquer the universe.
* BreakThemByTalking: While possessing Groot's body, it tries to demoralize the other heroes by pointing out their deepest regrets and weaknesses. This fails when they manage to save Groot and escape through ThePowerOfFriendship.
* GrandTheftMe: It manages to possess Groot and tries to escape the PrisonDimension using Groot's physical form. Fortunately, the other Guardians manage to extract Groot's miniature form from the corrupted large body.
* LiterallyShatteredLives: After the Guardians escape the PrisonDimension, the Black Vortex's sentience makes one last attempt to escape as well. Groot puts an end to this by shattering the mirror as the sentience gets half-way out, resulting in the sentience being sucked back into its own dimension with a BigNo. With the mirror destroyed, the sentience is truly trapped forever.

Natural laws can change as well, which could result in ToonPhysics and other surreal effects. As a result, the Guardians of the Galaxy have several improbable adventures within the Black Vortex in their quest to escape its clutches.
* PrisonDimension: It is the gateway to another dimension that can change according to the memories of those trapped within. The mirror is the only way in or out of the dimension.
* WeaksauceWeakness: After possessing Groot, the Black Vortex's sentience can be harmed by pieces from Groot's original body before being possessed. This is what allows the heroes to free Groot in his miniature form.
* YearOutsideHourInside: The Guardians spend only a few hours within the Black Vortex's dimension while years pass in the normal universe, resulting in them being remembered as [[LongDeadBadass heroes who sacrificed themselves to save the galaxy]].
* YourMindMakesItReal: It reaches into the minds of its occupants and creates environments and creatures based on their memories and thoughts. As a result, duplicates of Ronan the Accuser and J'Son of Spartax appear to hound the Guardians despite the disappearance of their real selves in the normal universe.

* {{Warrior Prince}}es: As noted in "The Black Vortex Part 1", she's the daughter of a ruler of a planet, so that technically makes her a princess. And said ruler trained her to be one of the most dangerous people in the universe.


* AdaptationalVillainy: J'Son in the comics was a murderer, but at least he had decency such that he left Meredith because he didn't want to drag her into an war involving his planet that he was reluctant to be a part of. In this continuity, the war that he didn't want Meredith to be a part of was one ''he'' wanted in the first place.

* HateSink: J'son is but a selfish {{Jerkass}} who only cares about glory and reward. He left after Peter was born and never cared to look back. J'son didn't want to see him or know about him until he's a proper thief. He's so obsessed with destroying Asgard that he doesn't care about his own people's safety, not to mention his willingness to strike a bargain with Thanos. He attempted to steal the Cosmic Seed to give to Thanos, but once Loki stole the seed as part of ''his'' plan, it gave him a reason to prepare his people for war with Asgard, and once Loki's plot was revealed, J'Son still insisted that Asgard pay for the damage they caused to Spartax. With regards to his relationship with his family, he even badmouths Meridith in a very subtle way during his fight with his son, implies he only cared about her in the most superficial way possible, even after her death.
** He continues this into Season 2 when he makes it clear there isn't anyone he won't betray or manipulate to advance his interests.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: When the Guardians are wanted by the Kree in Season 3, Cosmo subdues them at Knowhere. As he says, he's a good dog and sees it as enforcing the law. However, Phyla-Vell intends to execute the team on sight, which Cosmo opposes. He "fails" to keep Groot immobile so that the team can escape. He also refuses to pursue them after reading their minds and learning their claims of innocence were true.


Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: Goes out of his way to repeatedly insult Groot, someone twice his size and substantially stronger than him. It was part of the reason he almost got tossed out of an airlock.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a self-serving, loudmouth schemer, but he has his standards and tries to help the Guardians now and then.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: No one but Star-Lord knows what a duck is, so his repeated references to it confuse Howard and everyone else.
* TranslatorBuddy: Reveals he's long been able to understand everything that Groot has been saying. Groot and Rocket are rather surprised.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: In Season 3, he offers the team a job for substantial credits. Only Rocket is willing to trust him, due to their prior history. Howard, however, is being blackmailed by the Collector, so the job leaves the team arrested and without any credits.
