  • Creator Backlash: When shown the show's official soundtrack by a fan on social media, James Gunn (who directed the movies) said that he "Wasn't a fan" of the choices.
  • International Coproduction: Not the show itself, but the Latin American-Spanish dub, while show mostly with Mexican voice actors but share with Argentinian voice actors who have also done the most parts in series like Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers, Assemble! and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (in fact, all the show share Mexican actors in later seasons).

  • Ink-Suit Actor: J'son looks almost exactly like Jonathan Frakes.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Vanessa Marshall replaces Nika Futterman and Laura Bailey as Gamora, despite Futterman coming back later as Angela. Marshall also replaces Cree Summer as Meredith Quill.
    • Jonathan Adams replaces James C. Mathis III as Ronan.
    • Despite voicing Rhomann Dey, Jeff Bennett is replaced as the Collector and Grandmaster by, respectively, Tom Kenny and Jason Spisak. It's especially noticeable given that the Contest of Champions arc is being adapted in Ultimate Spider-Man at the same time the early episodes of this series are airing: in what is thought of as a linked universe, you're watching them in one show, and then hearing them sound very different in a show that airs the same day.
    • Also, though his new portrayal has spread to the other shows, Will Friedle replaces Chris Cox as Star-Lord, making him sound very different from what viewers of Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers, Assemble!, and/or Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. were used to.
