All spoilers for this movie will remain unmarked. You Have Been Warned.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the 2017 sequel to the 2014 comedy superhero Space Opera/Space Western film Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Like the first film, it is directed by James Gunn. It is based on the Marvel Comics line Guardians of the Galaxy.Two months after the defeat of the villainous Ronan the Accuser, the Guardians of the Galaxy, which consist of Peter "Star-Lord" Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) are riding high on their newfound notoriety, selling their services as heroes for hire. Unfortunately, when they take a job for a race called the Sovereign in exchange for their captive, Ronan's former Dragon Nebula (Karen Gillan), the Guardians end up angering their easily-offended clients and get put on the Sovereign's hitlist. Now the Guardians are on the run from the Sovereign and the team's old Space Pirate enemies / allies the Ravagers, who have mutinied against their boss Yondu (Michael Rooker) for his softness on his former apprentice Peter, and are now leading the Sovereign's manhunt. And just to complicate matters, Peter's Disappeared Dad Ego (Kurt Russell) has resurfaced, along with Mantis (Pom Klementieff), a protégée of his own.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, is in development at Marvel Studios. James Gunn was originally set to write and direct the movie. However, Gunn was suspended by Disney in 2018 when prior, off-color comments that he made in his years as a Troma director resurfaced, leading to his suspension as he was removed from the project; Kevin Feige ultimately convinced Disney to keep his script intact due to the importance of Vol. 3 to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the company searched for a new director. Gunn was subsequently hired for the DC Extended Universe to write and later direct a 2021 sequel to Suicide Squad entitled The Suicide Squad. Disney reversed their decision in 2019 at the continued requests from the cast, crew, and fans of the franchise, allowing Gunn to work on Vol. 3 after he completes production of The Suicide Squad.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Previews: Sneak Peek, Teaser Trailer, Big Game Spot, and a Full Trailer.Character tropes go on to the Characters Sheet.

Sure, Let's Go with That: When Yondu uses his Yaka Arrow to slow down his descent, Peter laughs because it make him look like Mary Poppins. Yondu, not knowing that the character in question is a female British nanny, asks if he's a cool character and Peter decides to tell him he is.

comment
Single Specimen Species: Partly averted regarding Ego. In the first movie, we find that Knowhere is "the severed head of a Celestial." This Celestial apparently had a humanoid body (and head); Ego, on the other hand, is shown to be a floating brain, and when he learns to manipulate matter, he forms a planet instead. Only when he wants to explore does he form a humanoid body, which must return to the original planet to recharge periodically.

Bloodless Carnage: A lot of characters die onscreen in this film, but rarely is any blood seen outside of the first monster they dispatch on the Sovereign homeworld. The Sovereign use attack drones, so none actually get hurt when one is blown up... well their egos get bruised.

Heroic BSoD
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_1439161f
comment
Played straight by Peter as he deals with his Heroic BSoD regarding Yondu's death. While listening to Cat Steven's "Father and Son", Baby Groot comes to him seeking comfort and Peter shares the song with him indicating an increased sense of responsibility toward Groot. This is reinforced in the stinger where Peter and Teen Groot have a classic parent/child argument about keeping their room clean. Peter even says "Now I know how Yondu felt".

Darker and Edgier: When compared to the first film. The first Guardians, although dark at times, still felt peppy and upbeat and ended on a high note. The sequel, meanwhile, is a lot more somber due to the heavier themes, raunchier jokes, eviler villain and ends on a somewhat bittersweet note.

The Sociopath: Ego wishes to assimilate all life into himself because he was dissatisfied with his first encounters with other life. When he fell in love with Meredith Quill, he gave her brain cancer in order to keep his head clear. She was not the only mortal woman he slept with, as he needed a child for his scheme. Most of his children are dead because they were useless to him without powers, and he tries to use Star-Lord as a human battery when he defies him.

Never Trust a Trailer

comment
Never Trust a Trailer: San Diego Comic-Con trailer (not screened for wide audience) featured Sylvester Stallone in a Nova Corps uniform, allowing the Internet to speak openly about his "cameo as a Nova Corps" member. He turns out to be playing Starhawk and never wears a Nova Corps uniform in the movie. In the full trailer, Ayesha's comments about sensing great fear, jealousy, and betrayal within the Guardians, and that the Sovereign need to "cleanse the universe of this weakness", implying that the Sovereign are Omnicidal Maniacs who intend to wipe out all lifeforms that don't fit their mould. In reality, not only are the Sovereign not treated anywhere near as ominously as they are in the trailer, they are also mostly Plot Irrelevant Villains as they are only after the Guardians because they stole some batteries from them and Ego is the true threat of the film.

The Cameo: Stan Lee makes an exceptionally meta cameo appearance, chatting with a bunch of Watchers and seemingly talking about his previous cameo appearance in Captain America: Civil War * "As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, at that time, I was a Federal Express man.". Ben Browder (John Crichton in Farscape, which James Gunn has cited as one of his inspirations for the Guardians movies) makes an appearance as a Sovereign admiral. Ving Rhames and Michelle Yeoh both briefly appear as leaders of different Ravager factions; Miley Cyrus voices Mainframe when the Ravager captains team up in the credits. Howard the Duck also briefly appears at the same bar as Yondu early in the film. His date is played by Molly C. Quinn. The surprise appearance of Pac-Man. David Hasselhoff briefly appears when Ego takes his form. He also sings a song during the ending credits and shows up briefly between stingers.

Villain Ball: Ego might have been successful... if he hadn't decided to tell Peter about the fact he killed his mother just as he was on the verge of victory. It is justified as Peter was still resisting, which is why the topic of his mother even came up, and Ego didn't really have any options for how to answer that wouldn't cause problems.

Reality Ensues: How have the Guardians been spending their time since becoming heroes of the galaxy in the last film? By becoming heroes for hire at exorbitant prices. The monster's skin is too tough to cut? Well, don't try to cut it from the inside — it's still just as tough, you're just stabbing it from a different angle.note There is a slight flaw with this scene, as the point in getting through the skin is to get to the soft tissue organs behind it, yet Drax still tries to get through the hide when he's already in there. Also counts as Comically Missing the Point. Their fame, thanks to their exploits, is what allowed Ego to finally track Peter down in the first place. The Guardians try to escape from the Sovereign ships by going through a dangerous asteroid field, which destroys all of their pursuers. However, when they come out the other side, it turns out the main body of the Sovereign force just went around the asteroid field to wait for them. Drax does not wear jetpacks, since having it spontaneously construct itself around his bare torso hurts. Trafficking children when you're part of a group whose code specifically prohibits that leads to you getting kicked out and them not talking to you, no matter how close you were before. When Ego (Peter's father) reveals that he intentionally gave Peter's mother brain cancer to kill her, Peter immediately turns on him, not caring that Ego says he feels bad about what he did, and for the rest of the movie he has no problem with killing him or beating the shit out of him. Played for Laughs at one point. The Guardians, including Nebula and Yondu, are having a badass pose in a place that contains flying, fiery debris. After it slows down to detail this, one of the pieces of debris hits Mantis suddenly. Drax and Mantis, despite both looking relatively attractive to human eyes, have wildly different standards of beauty and while they get along very well, physically repulse one another. Peter naturally doesn't want to get to know Ego at first, because even though he's always wanted a father, he quite naturally resents Ego for abandoning him and his mother before he was even born. Plus, you don't just instantly trust someone you've just met, especially if they're claiming to be the parent of someone in their thirties. If you insist on something one day and then insist on something completely opposite the next, the person you're telling is just going to argue, then stop listening to you, as Gamora finds out in her chats with Peter. If you never tell your adopted son you were kidding when you threatened to eat him, he's probably gonna grow up believing you, and it might have a negative impact on your relationship. Ayesha's single-minded pursuit of the Guardians goes way beyond even what the rest of the Sovereign will tolerate and she is eventually forced by the council to answer for her waste of their resources. Yondu's Jerk with a Heart of Gold traits cost him his personal relationships with Peter and his Ravager family, because even if he did love them he never showed it and eventually crossed one line too many. Yondu keeps passing up big scores and not even punishing Peter when he screws over the Ravagers just because he can't bring himself to really hurt Peter. After Peter screws the whole crew over and over again and keeps getting away with it the crew eventually gets fed up with this and mutinies.

The Guardians' plan to stop Ego hits one when the Sovereign arrive and their drones unleash a battle at the worst possible time, and the wreckage from the aftermath hits Mantis, releasing her hold over Ego. Yondu would perhaps have survived had the Sovereign not decided to butt in, and the Sovereign would not have arrived had Rocket not stolen those batteries of theirs.

Source Music: The song playing in the opening battle and credits ("Mr. Blue Sky" by the Electric Light Orchestra) is playing through a special stereo Rocket was hooking up before the arrival of the monster. When Drax is thrown onto the box at the end of the credits, it abrputly cuts off the song as well, earning Groot's anger towards Drax.

Hyperspace Is a Scary Place
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_204a1207
comment
Hyperspace Is a Scary Place: Downplayed. The hyperspace jump itself seems pretty clean and straightforward when done in moderation (i.e. "less than 50"). Doing 700 in a row, like Rocket does to get Yondu's ship to Ego's planet quickly, is shown to distort all life inside the ship. It wasn't fatal and didn't appear to have any lasting effects... at least not in the short term.

Parents as People
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_20989d05
comment
Parents as People: Applies best to Yondu, whose Dark and Troubled Past involved being sold into slavery by his own parents as an infant, spending 20+ years in kill-or-be-killed conditions, and then being a captain of the Space Pirate Ravagers, which didn't really help matters, either. However, Yondu also defied Omnicidal Maniac Ego by keeping Peter far away from him, tried raising the Terran child to the best of his (often questionable) abilities, and ultimately pulled a Heroic Sacrifice to save Peter's life. Despite all his flaws, it's clear that Yondu genuinely loved Peter and at least tried to be a half-decent parent, unlike Ego.

How Do I Shot Web?: In one the Stingers, Kraglin tries to use the Yaka Arrow and control fin he inherited from Yondu. After several botched attempts, the arrow flies off and ends up hitting Drax. Peter's attempts to control "the light" have shades of this. He's able to do it, but not very well, until Yondu gives him a "Don't Think, Feel" speech.

Mythology Gag
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: Yondu's new head-fin is actually an old prototype he'd been keeping for emergencies — it conveniently resembles Yondu's original mohawk in the comics. Multiple movie posters◊ featuring Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams were planned at one point. He even portrays Tony Stark in a parody of the poster for Steve Jobs. And the Conan the Barbarian (1982) pastiche Arkon is a reference to a Marvel Planetary Romance character ... who was indeed played by Simon in a series of movies. Ego's planet near the end has the giant face of Ego on it like his comic-book counterpart, albeit it doesn't talk or emote. The scene where Peter transforms into Pac-Man is a discreet homage to the battle between Ego and Alter-Ego as seen here. Howard's appearance has changed slightly since his last appearance, becoming slimmer and looking more like his comic version. And with a beak shaped like the one in his infamous movie. Krugarr is first seen demonstrating the same kind of magic seen in Kamar-Taj. In the comics, Krugarr inherits the title of Sorceror Supreme at some point. Speaking of, Yondu mentions that he and the other Ravager captains were a lot like Rocket and the Guardians in their younger days, that's because comic fans know them as the original Guardians of the Galaxy. The blue uniforms worn by Starhawk and his fellow elder Ravagers are a nod to the uniforms worn by the Guardians during the famed DnA run on the title. The same run which, probably not coincidentally, was the basis for the movies. Nebula (very briefly) takes control of Yondu's cell of the Ravagers. This is much more in keeping with her comics characterization than the "Thanos's adopted daughter assassin" role she has in the films. When Peter first taps into Ego's power, his eyes turn into stars, and when asked what he sees, he says "Eternity". His look is similar to the actual Marvel Comics cosmic character, the omnipotent and all-encompassing Eternity, which the film may be hinting at for a sequel. At first sight, it would seem that "Taserface" was just a made-up name, something so corny that it was made specifically for Rocket and everybody else to laugh about it. But no: Taserface is an actual comic-book character◊, albeit a minor one, that showed up for just a couple of issues of the original team of Guardians in the Galaxy. And no, none of the old Guardians laughed about the name back then. Mantis, while not resembling her original incarnation, is a callback to the 2008 Abnett and Lanning run, where she was depicted as a precog and empath. Ego's plan to assimilate the universe with spores is reminiscent of his actions during the Maximum Security event of the comics. There a spore containing his consciousness ended up on Earth and attempted to convert the planet to a new body. A 1976 Fantastic Four story had Galactus instantaneously evolved into a giant, disembodied brain like the film's Ego (though he was restored back into the familiar, giant humanoid form a few years later).

Funny Background Event: Inverted for the opening credits.

But the entire sequence focuses on Groot, while lasers and Technicolor Fire blaze behind him. Some of the characters come into the foreground to interact with Groot or are simply thrown over to him during the course of the battle.

Disappeared Dad: Ego left Meredith before Peter was born, so Peter never knew his father. When Peter naturally asks why this happened, Ego explains that he had to periodically return his planet in order to survive; when Meredith died whilst Ego was away, he was so grief-stricken that he couldn't bear to return to Earth for Peter, instead hiring Yondu to abduct him from earth and bring him to Ego instead. Except that's actually all a lie; Ego was actually off cavorting with other women on other planets as part of his Assimilation Plot and just couldn't be bothered to take time out to retrieve Peter when Meredith died.

Break the Haughty: A Downplayed Example. Ayesha is portrayed as quite smug and arrogant throughout the film. When she fails to kill the Guardians and loses all her ships it takes her down a few pegs and she appears to be a bit haggard and disheveled during the movie's stinger. However, she retains her title of high priestess and still has a superior attitude regarding her new creation that she believes will be able to destroy the Guardians.

While he treats Mantis as more of a pet than an adopted daughter, the fact that he needs her help to sleep implies that, for all his horrific actions and callousness towards mortal life, deep down he still feels guilt for his actions over the millennia.

comment
Rogues Gallery Transplant: Ego originated as a villain for Thor in the comics before becoming a kind of Marvel-wide space villain, albeit Thor was the hero who dealt most often with him. His connection to the Guardians is entirely original to the film as is his connection to Star-Lord and Mantis. This change has also modified Ego's origin and powers, since in the comics he had full molecular control of his planet's surface mass and atmosphere which allowed him to be a threat that even Thor was tentative about tackling, and allowed him to hold his own against Galactus. In the film, these aspects are removed to make him a villain not entirely beyond the scale of the Guardians.

Made Myself Sad

comment
Ego talks about the horrific things he's both planned, namely assimilating the entire universe into himself and exterminating all life other than himself, and actually done, such as killing off all of his previous children and giving the one person he claims to have genuinely loved a fatal brain tumor, with complete nonchalance. It's quite obvious he has no comprehension of just how evil he is, as shown by his affront when his son is genuinely enraged by the things he's done. As an immortal being, he sees no purpose or meaning in mortal life, since in his view either he kills them now or they grow old and die, and if he formed a bond with them, well that would make him sad.

While the Ravagers are ruthless and sometimes even murderous Space Pirates, their code expressly forbids trafficking in children. Yondu's dealings with Ego — specifically, abducting Ego's children from planets all over the universe and bringing them back to him — are why he and his fleet were exiled. At the time, Yondu justified it as "I didn't know what was going on", but stopped when he actually realized that Ego was killing them — and adopted Peter to protect him from Ego.

He seduced hundreds of women and sired hundreds of children to further this plan, and murdered just as many when they didn't inherit his "spark" and therefore were of no use to him. Though he claims he genuinely loved Peter's mother Meredith, even his concept of "love" seems shallow since the things he liked most about her were her looks and her knowledge of 80's pop music, and he murdered her in agonising fashion with a brain tumor so he wouldn't become too attached to Earth, which rather throws doubt on the idea that he loved her at all. He keeps Mantis around to serve his needs and Drax thinks he is treating her like a pet, and his overall vibe is that he sees everyone in the universe in terms of how they can or cannot serve or amuse himself, and even his final plea to Peter is that if he — Ego — dies, Peter will be "condemned" to be just like everybody else. Peter merely asks him "what's so wrong about that?"

Because Yondu broke the Ravager code by trafficking in children (repeatedly stealing Ego's offspring from their mothers and home worlds on commission for him), Stakar angrily informs Yondu that when he dies, the other Ravagers will not be there to ceremonially honor his life. In the end, because Rocket sent them word of Yondu's Heroic Sacrifice, Stakar and the others do come to pay their respects. It is only from Stakar's earlier detailed condemnation that we realize just how much their attendance would have meant to Yondu (and does mean to Kraglin).

Kick the Dog: Any sympathy the audience may have had for the mutineers goes right down the drain when we see how much they taunt and abuse Baby Groot. Ego: He raised Mantis, but, by her own admission, he treats her as more of a pet than a surrogate daughter. Just like his murder of Meredith, Ego plans to kill the other Guardians so he's is the only thing Peter has left. He also crushes Peter's Sony Walkman, the last thing he has to remember his mother. He briefly takes on the form of David Hasselhoff to mock Peter, who would claim the Hoff was his father as a child.

In-Universe Soundtrack

comment
In-Universe Soundtrack: Like the first movie, much of the soundtrack originates from inside the story. This film explores additional ways that characters listen to the music, such as homemade portable loudspeakers and the Eclector's intercom system in addition to the headphones and tape deck used in the first film. And after Peter's Walkman is destroyed in the film's climax, he is given a Zune with new music on it, which provides the song for the ending scene. Highlights include "Mr. Blue Sky" by Electric Light Orchestra and "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac.

Sequel Escalation
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_391d6577
comment
Sequel Escalation: A higher-stakes plot (though one more independent from the MCU's cogs than in the original), more effects, more jokes, more big-name actors (even in bit parts!), and more emotional punch. If one considers how old Ego was and how many planets had those seeds of his all over them, this film had the highest potential death toll of any villainous scheme in the MCU (in the immediate sense of "This action will kill people," not counting future actions such as Thanos getting the Infinity Gauntlet), or for that matter most science-fiction and superhero movies. Even the bad guys in Star Wars didn't want to erase all habitable mortal existence and replace it with extensions of themselves. note  Well, in Disney canon anyway. BioWare-Obsidian Star Wars is a different matter.

Character Development
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_3b113b7
comment
Character Development: All of the Guardians have progressed slightly since the end of the last movie: Peter tries to be more responsible and a better leader, even chastizing Rocket for fiddling with superfluous work before a battle, as well as criticizing him for stealing two of the Sovereign's batteries. He also cares less about the name Star-Lord, since he got the respect he wanted. Rocket has picked up an appreciation for Peter's music, insisting they listen to it while they work and even humming to himself while fighting the Ravagers. He's also nicer to Groot this time around. Within the movie itself, he realizes that his insecurities are causing him to ruin every friendship he has. He wants to form closer relationships, but his fear of that kind of intimacy makes him act like a jackass until all his friends leave him. Gamora is less adversarial and even learns how to dance and lets herself explore her feelings for Peter. She also shows a much softer side when she interacts with Baby Groot. Drax is less serious, having developed a basic understanding and appreciation for humor, especially practical jokes, and tries to console and offer wisdom to Peter. He even seems to have developed a grasp of metaphors by telling Mantis she is beautiful... on the inside. Groot is still a baby so he's actually moved backwards, being contrary, fussy, impulsive, and only weakly grasping what people want him to do.

Boldly Coming: Implied. Ayesha takes notice of how alien the Sovereign's method of reproduction comes across to Peter, and suggests he show her the Terran way sometime. He begins accepting, then switches to refusal when he remembers Gamora's presence. As depicted in his animated diorama, Ego wooed a lot of alien women in an attempt to sire a child who could assist him with his grand plan.

One for Infinity War: When Nebula requests to be freed from her cuffs to help the Guardians fight off a potential hostile force Gamora claims she'd just attack her as soon as she was released, leading to Nebula giving a very unconvincing reply that she wouldn't. One of the Guardians quips that, being the daughter of a genocidal monster, you would think she'd know how to lie better. Infinity War reveals that, of all the horrible things Thanos has ever done, he never lies and has never taught his daughters to lie, making them both exceptionally bad at it.

While he wants Peter to help willingly, when he rebels, Ego is quite content to use Peter as a living battery.

Bittersweet Ending: Especially in contrast of the first film's cheerful And the Adventure Continues style ending. The Guardians manage to stop Ego from assimilating every life in the universe, but Yondu sacrifices himself to save Peter in the process, and thousands of beings are killed by Ego's blob. Gamora and Nebula manage to reconcile, but Nebula still leaves to pursue revenge against her father. The last shot of the film before the credits, holds on a close-up of Rocket's tear-streaked face. Also, one of The Stinger scenes reveals that Ayesha is in the process of creating a superior lifeform she calls "Adam" that she believes will be able to destroy the Guardians.

Leg Cling: A deleted scene has Ego showing the Guardians a Xandar War Memorial he built, showing Star-Lord "single-handedly saving the galaxy". To the dismay of the other Guardians, Peter Quill is pictured as larger than life, standing triumphantly above Ronan the Accuser, with Drax reduced to a monkey on his shoulder and Gamora clinging submissively to his leg.

Stylistic Suck: The video looks exactly like a VHS ad from the '70s or '80s, with crappy video quality and 4:3 display ratio, and the hosts are indistinguishable from those of some home-shopping TV program of the same period.

Love Hurts
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_424d15ad
comment
Love Hurts: In a twisted way. Ego supposedly realized that, of all the women that he had children with, Meredith was the one he genuinely grew to start to love... and that made him also realize that if he didn't do something soon, his feelings for her could make him stop his Assimilation Plot, so he stopped visiting her and gave her the fatal brain tumor before he grew to care too much about her to the point that it would pain him if she lives out her natural lifespan. Even in the present, talking about Meredith seems to invoke more of a sincere reaction out of them than anything else.

What Does This Button Do?: Rocket shows Groot an explosive device and gives him specific instructions not to press the Big Red Button, that would set it off immediately, killing them all. Groot has trouble understanding. Fortunately, when Groot has to press the button, he nearly presses the wrong one, but stops at the last second and makes the right choice.

Adult Fear: Deals heavily in these, though it falls primarily to Yondu, who spends almost the entirety of the film dealing with people who are threatening to kill his adopted son. Made especially obvious when Rocket tells him that Ego has Peter. This is something he's been trying to avoid for 25 years, and it shows. Baby Groot; early on, he nearly falls off a skyscraper, and later is nearly crushed by Ego. He even starts to cry as the latter is happening. Keep in mind that he's still in the midst of regrowing and has regressed back into a baby. Ego, an Abusive Parent who has killed thousands of his own kids just because they weren't what he wanted. During the expansion, one of the planets Ego had infected is shown having the outgrowth barreling down on a mother carrying her infant, stumbling and curling herself around the child to protect it. Thankfully, Peter snaps out of it in time to prevent those particular deaths.

Saying Too Much: Ego has Quill believing everything he says, causing his son to become Drunk on the Dark Side and all but willing to join him, even as his description of his plans become more and more sinister. Then, Ego lets it slip that he purposely infected Quill's mother with the tumor that killed her. This revelation hits Quill's Berserk Button causing him to snap out of it with Unstoppable Rage.

Bait the Dog: We are told by Yondu of all people that Peter's father is a "jackass", but Ego at first seems like a pleasant guy, trying to reconnect with his son, sharing his love of 70's music, and playing catch with Peter with an energy sphere that he taught him how to make. And then we learn Mantis is treated more like a pet with benefits than an adopted daughter by Ego. And then we learn of his grand scheme of assimilating the universe. And then we learn that he killed dozens of his children simply because they were of no use to his plan. And then we learn that the best way for him to carry on with his scheme after falling in love is to give his wife a brain tumor... see a pattern yet?

"Just Joking" Justification: Even after Peter learns the circumstances and reason for Yondu keeping him when he was "a skinny kid," he does rightfully call out the latter for all the verbal barbs he had to put up with in the rest of his childhood. Yondu doesn't exactly deny it, but still brushes it off as his way of joking.

The Stinger: Taken Up to Eleven — even by MCU standards! — as the movie has no less than five scenes during and after the credits. (Many of these are just throwaway gags.) In order of appearance: Kraglin, now the owner of Yondu's Yaka Arrow, practices how to use it, only to stab Drax in the neck. In the aftermath of Yondu's death, Stakar assembles several other Ravager captains, the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Ayesha is met by a Sovereign who watches her overseeing the creation of the Sovereign's "next step" of evolution of her people, and decides to christen said creation "Adam". Groot, now having grown to be a teenager, is scolded by Peter for letting his room on the Ravager dropship become filthy and ignores Peter while playing a video game. The Watchers from Stan Lee's cameo depart while he tries to keep their company.

Scenery Porn: The scenery on Ego's planet is breathtaking. Ego takes the Guardians through an alien vista of lush forests and sprinkled with waterfalls coming out of rock peaks and ponds, and Gamora is shown sitting in the middle of large plain where one can see the sky covered in auroras. Ego's palace is no less incredible, with incredibly ornate floors, walls and everything creating an organic beehive feel to the place.

Getting Crap Past the Radar: Rocket maintains the film's PG-13 rating in his translations for Baby Groot. Rocket then mentions he has to have a talk with Groot about his language (although technically PG-13 movies are allowed to say the F word about two times). On the recreational planet where the Ravagers are spending some shore leave, our first shot of Yondu is of him shirtless while fastening his belt, while a latex-wearing gynoid powers herself off. He's clearly just finished a transaction with a Sexbot.

A second from Ego, with far darker implications, where he reveals the real reason he never came back to Earth. Ayesha gets one in her mid-credit scene, finally answering the question of where, how and why a certain much-anticipated character will be joining the MCU by telling an underling about her new genetic creation. Shortly after the first wham shot listed below, Mantis has one that puts it into context: Nebula reveals the source of all her resentment against Gamora and puts their history in a totally new light:

Disproportionate Retribution: The Sovereign are particularly infamous for meting out the death penalty for the smallest slights against them. Their reaction to Rocket stealing some of their batteries? Send an entire battle fleet after them with orders to shoot to kill. And as stated by the Sovereign's leader, the batteries were of lesser concern to her; the more grievous transgression was Rocket's insult against their people. The last scene reveals that her actions were disproportionate even by Sovereign standards, and she's being called to account for the ludicrous waste of resources.

Obliviously Evil
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_51c70be6
comment
Obliviously Evil: Ego talks about the horrific things he's both planned, namely assimilating the entire universe into himself and exterminating all life other than himself, and actually done, such as killing off all of his previous children and giving the one person he claims to have genuinely loved a fatal brain tumor, with complete nonchalance. It's quite obvious he has no comprehension of just how evil he is, as shown by his affront when his son is genuinely enraged by the things he's done. As an immortal being, he sees no purpose or meaning in mortal life, since in his view either he kills them now or they grow old and die, and if he formed a bond with them, well that would make him sad. The defining example of this? He literally tries to downplay giving Meredith a brain tumor the way a teenager might try to defend themselves from responsibility, flat-out saying "I know that SOUNDS bad, but—". He could have picked literally countless means of murder that would have dealt with Meredith quickly and painlessly, but instead chose to give her one of the most psychologically and physically painful forms of death there is, all so he wouldn't have to watch her die. If this were any other character in fiction, such nonchalance would be unbelievable, but since this is Ego we're talking about...

Book Ends: Peter and Yondu's relationship ends as it began: With Yondu whisking Peter away to safety after he watches a parent die. Peter is also picked up by Kraglin and the others just after Yondu, whom Peter has just realised was his true father figure, sacrifices his life to save him. The film kicks off with Electric Light Orchestra's "Mr. Blue Sky", and the symphonic finale at the end of the song can be heard during the credits.

This Is Unforgivable!: Ayesha considers the Guardians stealing batteries that they were hired to guard to be "heresy of the highest order" and authorizes lethal force when hunting them down. Yondu is seen to have crossed the line by the other Ravager captains, having broken the code by "trading in kids." He is considered redeemed at the end for saving his adopted son and helping to defeat Ego, at the cost of his own life. Understandably, Peter has this reaction when Ego reveals he gave Peter's mother the brain tumor that killed her.

Lovecraft Lite: The film proper opens on the Guardians fighting the Abilisk, a multi-tentacled dimension-hopping monster, and defeating it with a sword. Ego, a millennia-old Celestial, has spent ages implanting plants onto various worlds and attempts to swarm them with his genetics in an Assimilation Plot, fathering a human offspring à la The Dunwich Horror. His offspring is largely humanoid, and while his plan comes close to winning, the Guardians find his Achilles' Heel and are able foil his plans, albeit with the loss of one of their number, Yondu.

Adrenaline Time: James Gunn said in the DVD commentary that he likes to composite scenes filmed at different speeds to give a layered effect (sometimes subtle, sometimes pronounced) to the final scene. Used in the forest scene when Rocket's gravity traps blow the Ravagers into the air. There are layers of Ravagers moving at different speeds both as they're flying up and dropping back to the ground. A similar timing effect is used during the Flechette Storm trap. Used extensively when Yondu has regained control of his Yaka arrow and is using it to take out all the mutinous Ravagers on his ship.

Phileo is exemplified by his Family of Choice with whom he spends time going on adventures of derring do. Agape is exemplified by Yondu, the one who he eventually regards as "dad", doing a Heroic Sacrifice to ensure Peter's survival.

Adaptational Modesty: Mantis' costume has leggings and no plunging V-neck, in contrast to her original outfit from the comics. Ayesha's robes are also a mite bit more conservative than the Leotard of Power she has in the comics. There's also Aletta who's dressed up to the collar like Mantis — it's safe to say this applies to anyone who isn't Drax.

Body Motifs: An unconventional example; Ego is closely associated with tumors. He infected Meredith Quill with cancer using his powers. As he activates different fragments of himself on other planets, they are covered in ugly blue growths modeled on tumors. In behavior, Ego himself is a sentient, malignant tumor; an abnormal organism who exists to grow and consume the universe, killing all in its path. To a lesser extent, he's associated with brains. His original form was a disembodied brain that he gradually built a planet around, and he specifically chose to kill Meredith Quill with brain cancer.

Cerebus Call Back: Several to the first film regarding The Reveal of Ego being the Big Bad Dad. Yondu and Kraglin saying Peter's father is a jackass. The film proves this to be not only true, but a complete understatement. The cancer of Peter's mom. Ego caused it, claiming it as a Shoot the Dog moment for him as he believes that "love is a distraction". Peter saving Gamora from outer space by giving her his own breathing device/mask then plays it off as his own heroic moment when they both got rescued becomes this when in this film, Yondu does the same thing to Peter, but he doesn't survive long enough to get rescued, and Peter can only watch helplessly as he dies in front of him.

Ego is also one for the Darth Vader Clone archetype. Like Anakin Skywalker he is the father of the hero, and he caused the death of the hero's mother and was separated from his son by a mentor figure who consciously hid the past from the hero. But it turns out that Ego is an insane god who, despite his capacity for human responses like love, can get over it and saw Meredith as disposable, and likewise sees his son as an extension of his plans. Peter is too human to forgive or try to redeem Ego, and feels no remorse or second thoughts about destroying Ego because his real father and his real family are Yondu and his friends.

Pragmatic Villainy: At one point Yondu points out to his crew that being complicit in the deaths of the Guardians of the Galaxy is not worth it, no matter how much the Sovereign pay, because it would get the entire Nova Corps hunting them down. Nebula invokes this when she stops Taserface killing Rocket and Yondu, pointing out that the Sovereign and the Kree will pay well for them respectively (and she wants a cut off the take).

Central Theme: Family of Choice.

Furthermore, the movie solidifies the Guardians of the Galaxy as a family unit. This is in contrast to Ego and his relationship with his children and eventually Thanos and his children.

Creative Closing Credits: Where to begin: Instead of the MCU's now-usual two Stingers, this film has five. The entire credits roll over a colorful retro background. Rolling credits also include first character portraits being vandalized, then characters dancing to the music. Including Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, a character that not only doesn't appear anywhere in this film, but won't appear until two movies from now. Several of the credits start out as "I am Groot" before being replaced by the actual name/job/department.

Spanner in the Works: In the backstory, Ego's plan about the Expansion hit a hitch when Space Pirate Yondu turned out to have a conscience after realizing what happened to Ego's children and resolving to protect the human Peter from his father's clutches. Had Ego got a hold of young Peter Quill, he would have found his Celestial offspring/battery and would have consumed the universe unopposed decades ago. The Guardians' plan to stop Ego hits one when the Sovereign arrive and their drones unleash a battle at the worst possible time, and the wreckage from the aftermath hits Mantis, releasing her hold over Ego. Yondu would perhaps have survived had the Sovereign not decided to butt in, and the Sovereign would not have arrived had Rocket not stolen those batteries of theirs. In extension to the above, had Yondu killed Taserface quickly, he wouldn't have been able to sic the Sovereign on Yondu in a final act of spite, avenging himself from beyond the grave.

 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_617f0563
comment
Heel–Face Turn: Nebula, who was Ronan's Dragon in the last film, has joined her sister as a member of the Guardians, however temporarily. Yondu has similarly gone from an antagonist leading the Ravagers to a wholehearted member of the Guardians after his crew plot a mutiny against him.

Sequel Hook
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_6293c185
comment
Sequel Hook: A title card before the end credits reads: The Guardians of the Galaxy will return. There are five end credit scenes for the film, and some of them open real possibilities for future Marvel movies. Stakar has reassembled his former team which comic-book fans may recognize as the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Ayesha will present to the rest of the Sovereign her latest creation which she dubs "Adam". Before the credits, Nebula leaves to go kill Thanos, foreshadowing her appearance in Infinity War.

The Mutiny
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_6383a034
comment
The Mutiny: Most of Yondu's faction come to think he's getting soft since the events of the last movie. Not helped at all by the senior factions shunning him for kid trafficking, which is forbidden in their rules. It comes to a head when they're hired to find Quill by the Sovereign and Yondu refuses to turn him in, leading Taserface to overthrow him (thanks to a sneak attack from Nebula).

Even Evil Has Loved Ones
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_63d861f8
comment
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Deconstructed. Ego wants to assimilate the entire universe, but he did genuinely fall in love with Meredith Quill, and even in the present still has fond memories of "his river lily". At the end of the day, however, Ego's Assimilation Plot is still his ultimate ambition, and he willingly gave Meredith a brain tumor in order to get rid of her and keep himself from constantly coming back to Earth. He himself says that it broke his heart to do it in a very genuine tone, but in the end Ego still considers himself a higher being. This is also the case with his son, Peter, whom he does genuinely like, and bonds with but, when Peter rebels against him, he has no problem turning him into a living battery for "a thousand years" as punishment (although considering a Celestial's lifespan, this is probably the equivalent of a spanking and a time-out to Ego). He only bothered bonding with Peter, however, because Peter possessed Celestial powers as well, meaning he is the only one with a place in/on Ego's world, as Ego's other children weren't so lucky.

But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Ego treats most of the horrible things he does in this manner, including murdering his own children. After all, what is the suffering of mortals to a godlike being such as himself? Even his murder of Peter's mother, whom he genuinely cared for, is regarded as little more than an unpleasant moment for him that he quickly got over like a bee sting or mosquito bite and he really doesn't seem to grasp the full extent of all the evil he's done.

Lack of Empathy
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_658f7193
comment
Lack of Empathy: Going hand-in-hand with his narcissistic personality, Ego's regard for lives other than his own is decidedly limited; he killed thousands of his own children when he realised they couldn't help his goal, he gave Meredith Quill a brain tumour when he realised he cared about her (considering that a weakness), and he thinks nothing at all of the countless lives that would be destroyed by his ultimate plan. That he describes the sensation of meeting life other than himself as "disappointing" speaks volumes.

comment
Mook Horror Show: Rocket vs. the Ravagers. They never stand a chance. Although their abuse is played for comic effect and Rocket is clearly enjoying himself, there's nothing in the scene that suggests his traps were intended to be non-lethal. note  His anti-gravity mines toss the ravagers above the treeline to plummet to the ground, his headbands electrocute the wearer, his darts cause near instant loss of consciousness and muscle spasms more indicative of a toxin than a sedative. It's hard to justify that there was no loss of life in this scene. Later, the mutinous Ravagers against Yondu's Yaka Arrow. They are mowed down before they can even react, some of them in complete darkness, with just the light of the red trail of the arrow illuminating their demise.

Jerkass Has a Point: Ayesha might be an arrogant, condescending bitch, but her grievance against the Guardians is that they (or rather, Rocket) stole some priceless batteries, which were the very things they were hired to protect. Yondu was absolutely right; Ego is a jackass. Kraglin, who previously had defended his captain, does have to admit that Taserface is correct about Yondu seeming soft when it comes to Peter. This is the tipping point for a mutiny, much to Kraglin's horror. Peter berates Rocket for pointing out that they can charge more for their services when people find out they've saved the galaxy for the second time in less than six months, but Rocket is right: when you're the best at something, you should be able to charge more for your services.

Meaningful Name: Ego. His Evil Plan is to take over many planets and mold them into his own image, spreading himself like a virus until every planet in the galaxy is a part of him. More obviously, he turns out to be an arrogant, self-absorbed and condescending maniac who places his own needs over those of others. When explaining his plans to Peter, Ego presents himself as the first and most important being in the universe — but really, he's just another planet among others, albeit with terrible delusions of grandeur.

Casting Gag: One of Kurt Russell's most famous roles is in The Thing (1982), a film where the antagonist is an alien that has the ability to assimilate other life. Ego has that same ability and plans to implement it on a galactic scale. In the James Gunn film Slither, Michael Rooker played a character who had an encounter with an assimilating alien and lost his life, except in that case he was assimilated and went on to assimilate others as the antagonist. Here, he fights and defeats the assimilating alien before giving his life to save his adoptive son.

Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Once Ego's true nature is revealed, he's quickly established as one of the most vile villains in a Marvel film to date; he's killed thousands of his own children, murdered a woman he claimed to love by giving her cancer, and his ultimate goal is to wipe out all other life in the universe so that the only remaining life will be extensions of him. All this, in a series that has been... well, not exactly saccharine, but certainly not as serious as the DC films or other MCU films and shows.

Instead, it turns Peter against him and ultimately leads to Ego's defeat and death.

Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure: Peter remarks that Yondu, using his Yaka Arrow to glide downwards, looks much like Mary Poppins while doing so. Yondu clearly doesn't know who that is and asks if he is a cool dude; Peter just says yes. Equally funny in the Taiwanese version, where Peter instead references another famous children's film character who flies with an umbrella. Peter compares his and Gamora's "unspoken thing" to Cheers. Gamora has no idea what that is.

Consummate Liar: Ego is a very good liar and smooth manipulator of people. When he first meets Peter and tries to excuse why he left him and Meredith, he says that it was because he couldn't stay on a planet without Meredith. Which wasn't entirely untrue; his growing genuine feelings for Meredith actually began to make him have second thoughts about his entire Assimilation Plot, and he would have stayed on Earth had he allowed them to continue growing — at least, so he says. So he killed her so that he wouldn't be tempted.

Celebrity Paradox: Back in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Cap lists the Rocky film series as one of the pop culture phenomenons he must catch up on. Sylvester Stallone, who plays the eponymous protagonist of the film series, makes his MCU debut in this film. David Hasselhoff played Nick Fury in a failed TV pilot in the '90s, which was then released as a standalone movie. This even got brought up quite a bit after Winter Soldier, due to the MCU Nick Fury now having a talking car.

"The Reason You Suck" Speech: A few of these get thrown around. Gamora gives one to both Peter and Rocket after they barely survive the encounter with the Sovereign fleet. Stating that either of them could have easily evaded their pursuers had they not let their arrogance and need to outdo each other get in the way. Rocket gets one from Yondu after they escape and kill the mutineers. Telling him that his mean personality and abrasiveness are just a defense mechanism, and that he's actually afraid of being loved because it will remind him of how lonely he really is. Gamora hits Nebula with one after their fight on Ego. Calling out her obsession with killing her. Going as far as to fly a ship half way across the galaxy to try again, and continuing to attack even after she saves her life.

Satanic Archetype: Meredith's description of Ego as an "angel, composed out of pure light" is evocative of Lucifer (whose name literally means "light bringer"), he's charismatic, manipulative, and narcissistic, acts as a corrupter to Peter and Yondu by preying on their vulnerabilities, and, despite all appearances, is ultimately an incredibly selfish and evil being willing to destroy innumerable lives for his own gain.

Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: A very Downplayed Example. Peter says "You shouldn't have killed my mom and squished my Walkman!" While upon first hearing it seems to fit the trope well, both movies established that the Walkman and the mix-tape it contains are some of the last ties Peter has to his mother and it is actually a highly treasured item.

Frickin' Laser Beams: The ship Yondu goes to Ego with is equipped with dozens of spherical laser guns that are small yet pack a punch. What's unusual about them is that the balls can roll around the ship in trenches carved in the hull, taking several positions around the ship. To dig their way to Ego's core, the lasers gather in several spots are the front to destroy stalagmites and walls in the way. The balls can also be concentrated into a specific area to create a focused beam, or dispersed around the hull to fire in several directions.

Like Father, Unlike Son: Ego indeed shares a number of similarities with Peter in their interactions. He's a roguish womanizer who seduces alien women of multiple species, loves the same kind of music, and has affable qualities, which makes him a manipulative sociopath devoid of sympathy, capable of overcoming any human bonds and takes the love 'em and leave 'em to the extreme. This horrifies Star-Lord when he learns the truth.

Deconstruction
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_8ae880f7
comment
Deconstruction: Peter's dynamic with Ego and Yondu is one for the hero's journey, chosen one and other narratives about the orphan's ordeal and changeling fantasy. Peter is both special and disposable; his existence was to be a mere tool and battery for a mad god to harvest the universe, and he would have been killed had he not been special — just like all his other half-siblings were — and he owes his own childhood, personality and independence to Yondu's change of heart. There's no special grand plan for his existence or big destiny about his past, unlike other heroes like Luke Skywalker or Harry Potter. Ultimately, Peter's real purpose and specialty is to be an adventurer on the margins with other outcasts and rejects like Yondu, Drax, Rocket, Gamora, and Nebula, with no special purpose aside from what he chooses to do with his life. Ego is also one for the Darth Vader Clone archetype. Like Anakin Skywalker he is the father of the hero, and he caused the death of the hero's mother and was separated from his son by a mentor figure who consciously hid the past from the hero. But it turns out that Ego is an insane god who, despite his capacity for human responses like love, can get over it and saw Meredith as disposable, and likewise sees his son as an extension of his plans. Peter is too human to forgive or try to redeem Ego, and feels no remorse or second thoughts about destroying Ego because his real father and his real family are Yondu and his friends. Alternately, there's the Mentor Archetype regarding Ego. Earth-tone clothes, tells the hero about his special destiny and powers, acts as a father figure. Except he's actually a selfish jerk who just wants to use the hero for his own purposes. And he can't be killed, not permanently, as long as he's on the planet. Meredith Quill deconstructs the Disposable Woman trope. Despite Ego insisting he loved her, he still considered her disposable enough that he gave her a brain tumor so she wouldn't affect his plans. Unfortunately, her son, who watched her die, disagrees. A minor one with the trope Both Sides Have a Point; because both sides have a point, they are unwilling to listen to the other.

Anachronic Order: Within the greater MCU. Most MCU films follow a fixed timeline and are set chronologically in the order of their release. However, James Gunn decided to set this film just two months after the events of the first Guardians movie, meaning that it takes place well before the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and the rest of Phase 3 despite being the third film in Phase 3. Though given that the series is set clear on the other side of the galaxy from the rest of the 'verse's properties, there's not much continuity to worry about aside from the seed of Ego that's clearly in Missouri.

Ignored Epiphany: Ego states to Peter that Meredith was the first person that he genuinely loved other than himself, enough for him to consider settling down with her for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, he saw this as an obstacle rather than the answer to his search for meaning, and thus killed her to prevent himself from abandoning the Expansion.

Karmic Death: You wanted the ship, Taserface? You can have it. You got rid of Yondu's loyalists by throwing them out the airlock? Okay. But as soon as Yondu gets free and his weapon back, you're the one who'll have to watch as your loyalists are slaughtered and you end up getting blown up on the ship that you stole. Ego gave Peter's mother brain tumor that ultimately killed her, so it's fitting that he died by having a bomb detonate in his own brain.

Villainous Breakdown: Ego gets more desperate as Peter continues to rebel against him, after Peter defeats him in battle, he's reduced to begging Peter to not destroy everything and stay as a god. When Peter tells him off, he breaks down completely. Ayesha basically throws a temper tantrum when yet another drone fleet fails to get revenge on the Guardians.

Gamora switches to a big gun when fighting the Abilisk, saying she's not likely to beat it with a sword — yet that's exactly how it's beaten. The payoff comes when Gamora gets her hands on an even bigger gun and uses it on something a lot smaller than the Abilisk, but more dangerous — Nebula.

Action Film, Quiet Drama Scene: Quite a few. Nebula and Gamora's argument after their big duel, where Nebula explains why she hates her sister to Gamora at length. Yondu expertly deconstructing Rocket's behavior on board the Ravager ship, explaining how he and Rocket are Not So Different. Mantis using her empathic abilities to telepathically learn about Drax's family. Because the audience already knows Drax's backstory, all we see is Mantis collapsing into tears while Drax stares beatifically into the distance. Yondu's funeral.

Heel–Face Revolving Door: Nebula's allegiance to the Guardians is tense and ambiguous.

She also leaves without a fuss, signifying that she doesn't want to kill Gamora anymore but is also unwilling to join her.

They might be Stupid Evil, but they're smart enough to know pissing off a daughter of Thanos isn't a good idea. The entire remaining Ravager crew panic when Yondu turns his Yaka Arrow on them. You can actually see them freeze the minute they hear him whistle.

As You Know: In the first scene with the Guardians, Gamora exposits that they were hired by the High Priestess to kill the Abilisk. Maybe she thought Rocket had forgotten, you know, given that he was setting up background music and his known penchant for thievery. The Sovereign admiral points out that the anulax batteries are extremely flammable, a fact Ayesha likely would have already known. Gamora recaps Peter's childhood excuse of calling David Hasselhoff his father to Peter himself. Downplayed, however, in that Gamora gets some details wrong (e.g., saying Hasselhoff piloted a magical boat rather than a talking car), forcing Peter to correct her so she can tell the rest of the story properly.

Not So Different: Yondu hits Rocket with this. "I know who you are because you are me!" Rocket ultimately agrees with him especially when Yondu reveals that it was his own parents who sold him into slavery, and Rocket realizes that Yondu really does know what he's talking about. Ego invokes this to Peter a few times. He compares Peter's longing for Gamora to his own reasons for walking out on Meredith, noting that both of them are like the sailor in the "Brandy" song whose true love is the sea. Peter almost agrees until Ego reveals that he killed his mother and the other rejects, i.e. children without Celestial powers.

comment
Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Kraglin just wanted to voice his exasperation at Yondu always favoring Peter all the time. He didn't mean to instigate a mutiny. His inadvertent hand in that shocks him to his core, leading to his active part in Yondu's escape/revenge. A rare positive example that works to undermine Ego. Had Drax not had his bonding moment with Mantis, she would not have had the opportunity to experience the genuine love Drax felt for his family as a husband and more importantly, a father. Having learned the difference between Drax's love, and Ego's lack thereof pushes Mantis to help the Guardians.

Values Dissonance: In-Universe, Drax's culture apparently does not have many hang-ups about parental sexuality.

Foreshadowing
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: The film opens with "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" playing while Ego and Meredith ride in a car. The song is about a woman in love with someone who refuses to give up on the path they set for themselves despite their feelings for her: "My life, my love, my lady is the Sea." Ego hangs a Lampshade on it by using it as part of his "World of Cardboard" Speech. When camping with Ego, Drax reveals that he always thought Yondu was Peter's father since he "looks just like him" (despite Peter not having blue skin). After Ego's true colors are revealed, Peter accepts Yondu as his true father figure. One for Infinity War: When Nebula requests to be freed from her cuffs to help the Guardians fight off a potential hostile force Gamora claims she'd just attack her as soon as she was released, leading to Nebula giving a very unconvincing reply that she wouldn't. One of the Guardians quips that, being the daughter of a genocidal monster, you would think she'd know how to lie better. Infinity War reveals that, of all the horrible things Thanos has ever done, he never lies and has never taught his daughters to lie, making them both exceptionally bad at it. When Peter and Gamora have a private conversation after meeting Ego for the first time, Peter feels Ego is a little too good to be true, while Gamora insists they go along and see if he really is Peter's birth father. Besides if he turns out to be evil, they'll just kill him. That's more or less the plot: Ego truly is Peter's birth father, he is too good to be true, he turns out to be evil, and the Guardians kill him. After arriving on Ego's planet body, Gamora asks why there are no other people living on it. Mantis answers that it would be akin to a dog inviting fleas to live on itself. This is later revealed to be a big hint to how Ego views all mortal life as ultimately beneath him to justify annihilating them. Kraglin shuts down Taserface's initial discussion of mutiny ("If [Yondu's] so soft, why are you whispering?") and he backs down. In the end, Taserface only really moves forward with mutinying when it seems he has Kraglin's support. Peter's Walkman is knocked around during the opening battle scene, cutting the music short. In the film's climax, Ego distorts the music coming from the Walkman before crushing it entirely. Why would the form Ego created just happen to resemble a human man from the '80s? It doesn't. He's a shapeshifter. He can look however he wants. Which foreshadows that all the little dioramas he shows Peter are just as customizable, and he's doubtless shown them to his other kids. At one point Mantis mentions Ego's preoccupation with his "progeny". Unlike the word "child" or even "offspring", "progeny" almost always implies multiple children, which indeed turns out to have been the case. As mentioned in Flower Motifs, river lilies are used in funerals, and the fact that Ego calls Meredith Quill his "river lily" subtly emphasizes how he is directly responsible for her death. Kraglin and Yondu mentioned in the previous film that Peter's father was a jackass. Since Yondu knew by then what Ego was doing to his offspring, this is a severe understatement of the truth. Because Yondu broke the Ravager code by trafficking in children (repeatedly stealing Ego's offspring from their mothers and home worlds on commission for him), Stakar angrily informs Yondu that when he dies, the other Ravagers will not be there to ceremonially honor his life. In the end, because Rocket sent them word of Yondu's Heroic Sacrifice, Stakar and the others do come to pay their respects. It is only from Stakar's earlier detailed condemnation that we realize just how much their attendance would have meant to Yondu (and does mean to Kraglin). When he begins to bond with his son, Ego states that he has made "many mistakes", but Peter was not one of them. Many of those "mistakes" he's referring to are the thousands of other children that he killed because they did not share his power. Ego tells Meredith that the alien plant he stashed in Missouri will be "all across the universe." As he's already repeated the process on other planets as part of his "Expansion", he means the statement literally.

Hates Being Alone: Ego doesn't like having to be alone in the universe, and once he finds that he has an offspring (Peter) with the Celestial gene, he revels in the fact that he's no longer alone. With regards to the expansion, he isn't quite powerful enough to do it alone, and if he has to force his own son to stay by his side for eternity, so be it.

Baby Groot has a more turbulent relationship with Drax than the other Guardians, getting angry enough to physically attack him at least twice, although Drax, being Drax, barely notices. For his part, Drax is largely dismissive of Groot, at one point referring to him as "smaller, dumber Groot." Their volatile interactions are all Played for Laughs. However, Groot is happy to cuddle up and sleep on Drax's shoulder, too.

Continuity Nod: During the fight against the Abilisk, Drax lands harshly right next to Baby Groot, who stops dancing. He resumes each time Drax looks away, and freezes again when stared at. This calls back to the same routine in the stinger of the previous movie, when Groot had just regrown from a twig. The cybernetic eye of one of the Ravagers is once again a subject of great humour for Rocket. One of the planets seen in the climax is Xandar, identifiable by the Nova Corps fighters flying overhead. Two of the items on Yondu's funeral barge are the crystal frog statue he purchased (or stole) from the Broker, and the orange-haired troll doll Peter gave him instead of the Infinity Stone at the end of the last movie. In the post-credit scene featuring Stakar reforming his old team, one of the members (Krugarr from the comics) conjures magical circles just like the ones seen in Doctor Strange (2016). This is a reference to his comic version being a student and successor of Doctor Strange's. Peter's grandfather can be glimpsed in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene on Earth — he's driving a car that narrowly avoids being destroyed by Ego's seed. During the end credits, Stan Lee tries to convince his now bored alien companions to stick around by telling them that he has "more stories" to tell, and is credited as "Watcher Informant", implying that his previous cameos were also all the same person.note The Watchers are a species of All-Powerful Bystanders in the Marvel Comics, charged with observing the events of the universe. At the end of the credits, David Hasselhoff advises the audience to remember "we are Groot."

This Is Gonna Suck: Yondu when he realizes Rocket has set them on a direct course for Ego's planet. Yondu's cunning plan to send Baby Groot to get his prototype fin from the bridge of the Ravager ship leaves him grinning at Rocket, and Rocket (seemingly apologetically) looking back at him like this. Rocket's reaction when he realizes Groot has run away with the bomb but seems intent on pressing the wrong button.

One-Man Army: Rocket, with his various traps and hand-to-paw combat takes out a considerable number of ravagers that approach his camp. In the last film, Yondu took on an entire squad of Sakaarans; this time he takes on the entire mutinous Ravager crew and wins. Ego's first appearance consists of him single-handedly destroyed a Sovereign fleet.

Leitmotif
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_9f6fb586
comment
Leitmotif: A motif is introduced, initially as a theme for Ego, symbolising Peter's emotional relationship with his father, first played in a heartwarming note as the two play catch with a ball of energy that Peter created. After Ego is revealed to be the antagonist, the theme is played throughout the third act in a more intense or sinister note. It plays against the Guardians' theme from the original film just before Ego's death, symbolising Peter choosing his Family of Choice over his Omnicidal Maniac father. The theme returns one last time as Yondu delivers Quill to safety, where Quill learns that Yondu was always his true father figure, and plays in full force as Yondu dies.

Eye Scream: Part of Nebula's backstory involving Thanos' attempts to make her better.

Baby Groot manages to find "that guy's eye" from the last film during a Rummage Fail. Rocket insists on keeping the cyborg implant for the laughs.

Contrasting Sequel Antagonist
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_a3515d6
comment
Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Ronan the Accuser was more of a Hate Sink, Obviously Evil, deranged fanatic who set out to destroy Xandar out of his hatred for the Xandarian people and their culture. Ego seems benevolent at a glance, and even when his true nature comes out, he's driven by what he sees as his purpose in life rather than any actual hatred for the people who will die as a result. Their personalities and aesthetic also strongly contrast; Ronan was a rabid psychopath who never made any effort at being personable or even acting like it, and he had a very dark, grim style, while Ego is gregarious and easy-going, although that serves as a cover for his moral bankruptcy, and he's surrounded by colour and light, with Meredith describing him as "an angel, composed out of pure light".

comment
Rule of Funny: As mentioned below, the film makes a Running Gag of people calling Rocket the names of other kinds of animals, including "rat", "fox" and "puppy", with only Peter seeming to know what a raccoon actually is. Logically however, the alien cast should be equally unfamiliar with rats, foxes, and puppies as with raccoons. Ego, who has not only visited Earth several times, but specifically Missouri, where they have raccoons (seriously, hunting them is something of a pastime) calls him a "triangle-faced monkey." But jokes are funny enough for it not to matter. Even in a Space Is Noisy universe, why else would we hear pinball sounds when a ship is warp jumping?

Physical God
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_a60f7120
comment
Physical God: There's a reason Ego deems himself a "Celestial", which are high up in the comic-verse's list of God Tier creatures. He's an eternal entity, millions of years old, able to assimilate matter and manipulate it on a molecular level by mere will, which he has used to not only take physical form as a planet, but to create humanoid extensions of himself and send them to the furthest reaches of the galaxy. His avatars are super strong and durable, have a potent Healing Factor, and can manipulate matter that isn't part of Ego to the extent of effortlessly wiping out a fleet of drone-ships singlehandedly. Fighting him in his body is almost as bad as fighting Dormmammu. That said, he does have limits: he doesn't have the power to complete his Assimilation Plot on his own, or at least not in what he considers a reasonable timespan (and this is someone who's been alive for millions of years already), and is ultimately killed by applying a bomb to his "core". Admittedly, said bomb is a "super-bomb" built by Rocket using hyper-energy batteries stolen from the Sovereign. He also seems to have a limited level of awareness, with little ability to focus on more than one thing at a time. Hence, it is possible to hide from him on his own body/planet as it takes time for his conscious mind/avatar to locate someone.

Ascended Extra: Kraglin had barely a handful of lines in the first movie and accomplished no more than the nameless Ravagers. Here, he plays an important part in both Taserface's mutiny and Yondu's subsequent escape, and effectively becomes the Guardians' getaway pilot during the fight with Ego. He also has a large role in Yondu's funeral. It's less surprising an ascent when you realize said extra is played by the actor who also does the motion-capture for Rocket—and who is the director's brother to boot.

 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_a7f551dc
comment
Imagination-Based Superpower: Deconstructed. Ego's powers, as he explains briefly, stem from manipulating matter on a molecular level through sheer will. It's sort of like being a Reality Warper, except he can only change the physical environment around him. However, there seem to be shades of Semantic Superpower in play as well — it took Ego thousands of years to figure out how to manipulate matter enough to form a tough carapace to protect his exposed brain, eventually managing it by sheer force of will (with eons afterwards to perfect this method). His son Peter, on the other hand, gets a grip on his Celestial Power immediately, after Yondu chides him with a Don't Think, Feel speech. Despite Ego's extreme age and experience utilizing said power, Peter is able to stand toe-to-toe with him by using his abilities in the exact opposite manner.

Like a Son to Me: Yondu's feelings for Peter, in a contrast to Ego because Yondu sees him as his son and Ego sees him as his "battery". Played for Laughs with Baby Groot, with Rocket, Peter, Drax, and Gamora coming off as surrogate parents. Played straight by Peter as he deals with his Heroic BSoD regarding Yondu's death. While listening to Cat Steven's "Father and Son", Baby Groot comes to him seeking comfort and Peter shares the song with him indicating an increased sense of responsibility toward Groot. This is reinforced in the stinger where Peter and Teen Groot have a classic parent/child argument about keeping their room clean. Peter even says "Now I know how Yondu felt".

Adaptational Jerkass: Ego while still a bad guy in comics here has all of his worst attributes ramped up, in a similar manner as was done with Ronan in the previous movie. Ego was regarded as something of the cosmic hero's joke villain when anyone except Kirby was scripting him. Up until 2017 with his appearance in Ultimates 2 fighting alongside Galactus, most modern stories had silly plots like the Hulk fighting monstrous zits on his surface, and him hiring Rocket-Raccoon to de-louse his hair. The movie version is not a joke, being as dark and destructive as Ronan was.

Subverted when Groot does, in fact, press the countdown button and all the Guardians escape alive.

Soundtrack Dissonance: Baby Groot dancing to Electric Light Orchestra's cheerful "Mr. Blue Sky" is the opening of the movie, with the actual action of the rest of the Guardians fighting the Abilisk relegated to the background. Glen Campbell's breezy "Southern Nights" is played while Rocket fights Yondu's crew. Mostly by Wreaking Havok with gravity mines. Jay and the Americans' upbeat "Come a Little Bit Closer" is the background music to which Yondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot, lay waste to the mutinous Ravagers.

Pet Gets the Keys: When Yondu and Rocket are locked in the ship's hold, they catch Baby Groot's attention and tell him to bring Yondu's prototype head fin so they can break out. Unfortunately, Groot doesn't quite understand what they're talking about and brings back a series of increasingly hilarious object — including a pair of underwear, a severed toe, and a desk — before a regretful mutineer helps him out.

Towards the film's end, the audience gets to hear some of "Awesome Mix Vol. 3", which offers a brief glimpse look into the father-son relationship between Peter and his adoptive father, Yondu.

Abusive Parents: During Taserface's mutiny, Yondu mentions that his parents sold him off as a Child Soldier to the Kree. It's revealed that Ego plans to use Peter's Celestial power to make every planet in the universe become himself by terraforming them with plants he placed on them. It gets worse when it's revealed that he murdered all of Peter's half-siblings when they failed to inherit his Celestial powers, then stashed their skeletal remains in the caverns on his planet. Then, he subjects Peter to a Fate Worse than Death by making him a Living Battery for 1000 years as punishment for his insolence. He's also a surrogate parent to Mantis but, according to her, he treats her more like a pet.

In the full trailer, Ayesha's comments about sensing great fear, jealousy, and betrayal within the Guardians, and that the Sovereign need to "cleanse the universe of this weakness", implying that the Sovereign are Omnicidal Maniacs who intend to wipe out all lifeforms that don't fit their mould. In reality, not only are the Sovereign not treated anywhere near as ominously as they are in the trailer, they are also mostly Plot Irrelevant Villains as they are only after the Guardians because they stole some batteries from them and Ego is the true threat of the film.

Hypocritical Humor: A Sovereign pilot named Zylak gains a large gathering of enthusiastic fans as he chases the Milano through the quantum-asteroid field, surviving longer than everyone else, but when he's shot down by Drax, everyone leaves in disgust. While Drax is very insensitive about others, when Mantis says she doesn't like him "that way", he gets easily offended. Drax tells Mantis that she has the strength to put Ego to sleep. When she succeeds, he admits he never thought she could do it. He also brags about how exceedingly humble he can be after Ego downplays the scale of his planet.

Ego, a millennia-old Celestial, has spent ages implanting plants onto various worlds and attempts to swarm them with his genetics in an Assimilation Plot, fathering a human offspring à la The Dunwich Horror. His offspring is largely humanoid, and while his plan comes close to winning, the Guardians find his Achilles' Heel and are able foil his plans, albeit with the loss of one of their number, Yondu.

It's All About Me
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_bb18a227
comment
It's All About Me: Ego's biggest flaw, in fact (he doesn't call himself "Ego" for nothing). While he and Peter share many traits (they both indulge and find meaning in period Earth music and both really get around for starters), he assumes that Peter would find mortal life just as uninteresting as does. In a grander sense, finds other life disappointing compared to himself... so he seeks to replace all life with himself. He only creates offspring to have someone to keep him company, so long as they possess some of his cosmic power so he can use them to further his plans. Otherwise, he considers them disposable waste. The reason he gave Peter's mother a brain tumor that killed her in a slow and agonizing manner? It would have pained him to see her die when his master plan would kill all life in the universe, and he also couldn't bear seeing her die quickly so he made her terminally ill and left. Yeah, Ego is that selfish.

Improbable Aiming Skills: First of all, Yondu's Yaka Arrow. He's pretty amazing with it, but it particularly shines during his escape from the Eclector, even before he reaches the room with the video screens. In the same scene, Rocket watches one of those screens and sees a Ravager coming toward the control room. He scores a perfect hit shooting through the wall while holding his gun at arm's length and not even properly aiming it. After that first shot, it takes him no time at all to master the technique.

Getting Eaten Is Harmless
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_c1944f9
comment
Getting Eaten Is Harmless: When fighting an enormous tentacled creature with nigh-impervious skin, Drax leaps down its throat to try to cut it open from the inside. This fails completely because its skin is just as thick from the inside, but after it's killed, Drax emerges from it unharmed. Justifiable because Drax is that badass.

Big "NO!": Rocket keeps shouting "NO!" each time Groot points at the "Instant Death Button" that will set off the bomb. Gamora when she thinks Peter has died in a massive explosion. Ayesha after all her ships get destroyed in the Final Battle. This is also the last thing Ego says when Peter accepts losing his immortality. Peter starts begging and sobbing for Yondu not to sacrifice himself when they ascend into space with only one flight suit. Yondu doesn't listen.

comment
Eat Me: After a few minutes of fighting the Abilisk, it becomes clear that they're not going to be able to easily kill it because its skin is too tough to penetrate. Without thinking it through too much (or at all), Drax jumps into the monster's mouth reasoning that he can "cut through it from the inside." Realistically subverted when the interior skin turns out to be just as thick and tough as the exterior, a fact Peter and Gamora are well aware of.

Insane Troll Logic
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_c5f0119c
comment
Insane Troll Logic: Ego vehemently claims to Peter that he legitimately fell in love with his mother and knew that if he continued to spend time with her, his love for her would eventually make him stay on Earth, eclipsing his mission of assimilating the universe. So what does Ego do to rid himself of this distraction? No, he doesn't leave her (because he'd keep coming back for her as stated above) or disintegrate her in the blink of an eye (too noticeable). Instead, he gives her a brain tumor that will ensure that the distraction he's come to love dies a slow, painful death while he doesn't have to watch. This seems to stem from his own Lack of Empathy towards mortal life; everything else dies anyways, so why should the methods matter? It also helps fuel the debates on whether or not he loved her, he thought he did but didn't, or he was just claiming to have loved her to endear himself to Peter. The gist of his plan. The reason he began his plan for "The Expansion" was his loneliness and disappointment at no life being like him. He even at one point shouts in triumph that Peter's presence means he is finally not alone. So to combat this... he decides to destroy every living being in the universe and make all planets an extension of himself, ensuring he would be alone forever.

Ascended Fridge Horror
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_cc8b2fd
comment
Ascended Fridge Horror: So very much; at least half the entries on the first film's page got confirmed. So Peter is a Half-Human Hybrid who can withstand vacuum for a short period of time and wield an Infinity Stone briefly without dying? That kind of power is exactly why Ego wants to use him, and didn't just kill him outright. Yondu is a career space pirate, criminal, and murderer who grew up in a Kree slave camp yet he considers Peter's father to be a "jackass". Ego is revealed to be an Omnicidal Maniac who sired and murdered hundreds of thousands of his own children when they failed to inherit his Celestial gene and plans to wipe out the galaxy to replace it with more of himself. "Jackass" turns out to be an understatement. Why does Gamora have fewer obvious cybernetic parts than Nebula, despite them growing up as Thanos's Co-Dragons? And why was Nebula so homicidal towards her adoptive sister? Thanos, being Thanos, pitted them against each other. The loser would be Strapped to an Operating Table and "upgraded" to overcome any weakness. Gamora was always the better fighter, and fought to survive like the scared child she was — which led to Nebula being medically tortured after every defeat, leaving her in constant pain. Nebula blamed Gamora for the mutilation, and killing her would be the only way Thanos would stop.

His pointing this out causes an uprising he soon regrets when the rebels begin viciously spacing otherwise very strong crew members simply for being loyal to Yondu. Kraglin eventually helps Yondu escape, kill the mutinous crew, and save Quill. Kraglin actually apologizes saying he never meant to cause such a huge reaction.

Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The Ravagers betray and imprison Yondu for his perceived softness at the end of the previous film and the opening acts of this one. They also murder all the crew who were loyal to Yondu by throwing them out into space, as he's Forced to Watch. It doesn't end well, with Yondu proceeding to use his Yaka Arrow to take out all of them. Nebula flies halfway across the galaxy to hunt down Gamora, and can only scream incoherently when she finally catches up with her. At the end of the movie, she turns down Gamora's offer to stay with the team in favour of continuing with her mission to kill Thanos.

Loads and Loads of Characters: Purposefully averted, according to Word Of God from director and writer James Gunn, to contrast to the other MCU team movie sequels in this phase like Captain America: Civil War (which often doubled their cast size). 2 out of the 3 new Guardians were antagonists in the last film, and the new secondary characters are about the same number as those that died in the last film or otherwise don't appear in this one (Ronan → Ayesha, Korath → Taserface, the Collector → Ego, etc.). He even leaves characters that will debut in Thor: Ragnarok or the third Guardians movie to only appear in The Stinger or the credits.

Break Out the Museum Piece: Yondu gets his Yaka Arrow Controller (his "mohawk" looking cybernetic piece) irreparably damaged by Nebula, forcing him to use a larger and bulkier prototype version. Being called a prototype, and being bigger/bulkier, yet not seeming to have any greater functionality than the one he used before, indicating it is just an older model.

Our Wormholes Are Different: This movies features one of the most notable examples of characters using the Universal Neural Teleportation Network, a network of hexagon-shaped wormwoles placed all over the galaxy. It allows for convenient faster-than-light travel, but Yondu notes that mammals can't handle more than 50 jumps at a time, just as Rocket accidentally sets their ship on a 700 jumps trajectory.

Last Request: Knowing he won't survive the ship's destruction, Taserface radios the Sovereign to get back at Yondu, telling them his location, and asking just that the last thing they tell him before killing him is that Taserface sent them. And even then their representative laughs at his name. (Whether they intended to honor his request isn't known, but what ultimately happens to Yondu makes it moot.)

Vitriolic Best Buds: Baby Groot has a more turbulent relationship with Drax than the other Guardians, getting angry enough to physically attack him at least twice, although Drax, being Drax, barely notices. For his part, Drax is largely dismissive of Groot, at one point referring to him as "smaller, dumber Groot." Their volatile interactions are all Played for Laughs. However, Groot is happy to cuddle up and sleep on Drax's shoulder, too. Rocket and Peter bicker quite a bit, but Rocket still tries to stay behind to protect him during the final battle.

Love Redeems: Defied with Ego. The Omnicidal Maniac had visited Meredith Quill three times and was genuinely falling in love with her. Before his love could fully manifest itself, he realized that this love for one lifeform would prevent him from being willing to devour all life in the Universe. Thus, he stopped visiting her and implanted a tumor in her brain, killing her. He went to the extreme of killing her because he knew he wouldn't be able to stay away otherwise. Played straight with Yondu. His Heroic Sacrifice for Peter redeems him in the eyes of his fellow Ravagers, and also allows Peter to realize that Yondu truly loved him as a son.

Failed Attempt at Drama
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_d9563969
comment
Failed Attempt at Drama: A prime aspect of the humor of the movie. Ayesha makes a Big Entrance to meet Yondu with a ridiculously long entourage, all wearing grand robes with white fur, including two minions deploying a blue carpet from a roller so her feet won't get cold in the snow. Then the roller gets jammed. After knocking Yondu out, Nebula takes a bite out of the fruit that Gamora and Drax had been keeping from her in what would have been an awesome moment if she hadn't then spat it out because it's not ripe yet. After Nebula gets her spaceship from Kraglin and explains her Evil Plan to him, he merely states he thought she would buy a necklace, or a fancy hat, or anything girls usually like. The rising dramatic music even silences as he talks. In a dying act of revenge while his ship explodes around him, Taserface relays the coordinates of Yondu and the Guardians to the Sovereign. His only request is that Ayesha tells Yondu the name of the man who helped destroy him — Taserface! The Sovereign taking the message cracks up laughing. The Guardians dramatically regroup while the camera turns around them and an uplifting music plays, as numerous ships crash and explode into giant fireballs around them... and then, a piece of flaming debris flies right into the side of Mantis's head and knocks her out, seriously spoiling the scene.

Immortal Immaturity
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_db5e046d
comment
Immortal Immaturity: For a Celestial who's is millions of years old, Ego is remarkably immature, childish, and, ironically, impatient. He acts impulsively and short-sightedly despite having all the time in the world and greater power than most other beings. This extends to his shallow relationships with Mantis, who is more or less his organic alarm clock, and his interactions with Peter and co. That said, much of said millions of years of life were focused on figuring out how his own powers worked and building a planet around himself, not on activities that would produce mental/emotional maturity.

Contrived Coincidence: Gamora and Nebula, during their fight on Ego's surface, at just the right time in the plot, happen to stumble across a cavern containing the remains of Ego's numerous offspring who proved useless to his plans. This on a planet the size of Earth's moon. One's added retroactively to the previous movie when Ego mentions that Quill was able to hold the Infinity Stone without dying because he's half-Celestial, meaning he's probably one of only a handful of beings in the Galaxy who could have pulled it off—and he just happened to be there when it needed to be done.

Ship Tease: Peter and Gamora's relationship in a nutshell. Although it's clearly stated that Peter loves Gamora, Gamora has yet to openly reciprocate his feelings although she has many intimate moments with him, along with a lot of Say My Name moments during the climactic battle. The friendship between Drax and Mantis could be considered a hilarious subversion. Their first moments together show them getting really along despite Drax's Brutal Honesty, but Drax considers Mantis physically repulsive.

He becomes more Lovecraftian when his true colors are revealed, as his Assimilation Plot involves spreading pieces of himself to grow like tumors on planets.

Done in a tongue-in-cheek way. After his Walkman gets destroyed, at the end of the film Kraglin gives Peter a Microsoft Zune that Yondu found in a junkyard. Contrary to popular belief, while hardly the massive success of the iPod, Zunes did have a strong cult fanbase and several hardware iterations before the devices were discontinued in favor of the software platform that lives on as Groove. This would also explain how Peter kept his Walkman running all these years without visiting Earth.

Drax responds to Nebula's scornful remark of how the Guardians aren't friends with "No; we're family." This is particularly meaningful coming from Drax: not only is the page-quote exemplar of Literal-Minded evidently learning the concept of metaphor, but Drax is the only one of the Guardiansnote with the possible exception of Groot who has ever experienced normal family life and relationships.

Composite Character: The film version of Ego combines elements of the comic book Ego the Living Planet with J'Son of Spartax, who is Peter Quill's father in the comics, and the Priests of Pama, who raised Mantis in the comics. His appearance and desire to "seed the universe" make him similar to the Gardener, an Elder of the Universe like the Collector and the Grandmaster. The Sovereign seem to be a composite of the Enclave and the Universal Church of Truth. In the comics both have links to Adam Warlock.

Hate Sink: Beneath his affable facade, Ego is one of the most despicable villains in the entire MCU, next to Ronan the Accuser, Red Skull, Hela, and Mysterio. He's extraordinarily selfish, cruel, utterly lacking in empathy, cowardly, immature and completely without any moments of genuine kindness or compassion. Even his sole positive traits, his love for Peter and his mother, are undone by his selfishness, as he had no issue enslaving the former and killing the latter to further his goals.

Artistic License – Geography: Missouri does have one nuclear power plant in a rural area, Callaway Nuclear Generating Station, except it has only one reactor and cooling tower... and wasn't commissioned until 1984, years after the movie sets Ego and Meredith's romance before Peter was born. The power plant in the background of the opening scene is Plant Bowen, a coal-fired plant in Bartow County, Georgia.

Who Wants to Live Forever?
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_ea39d156
comment
Who Wants to Live Forever?: James Gunn has said the film will explore the loneliness and sorrow that would come with being an eon-old living planet. Ego admits that being an immortal is deeply lonely and depressing, having no one to relate to, and even the mortals he meets and forms bonds with will fade and die. When he reminds Peter that he's immortal as well, Peter realizes that eventually he could outlive his friends and be completely beyond human attachments, and is conflicted between choosing his current life and immortality. But this is ultimately subverted, as Ego admits that he just needs to have a purpose and does not wish to die. Unfortunately, his chosen purpose is an Assimilation Plot to wipe out the rest of the universe. Peter, after realizing that Ego killed his mother and more or less lied to him about his existence, promptly decides to destroy his father and in the end, willingly gives up immortality and godhood to instead save the universe.

Defied with Ego. The Omnicidal Maniac had visited Meredith Quill three times and was genuinely falling in love with her. Before his love could fully manifest itself, he realized that this love for one lifeform would prevent him from being willing to devour all life in the Universe. Thus, he stopped visiting her and implanted a tumor in her brain, killing her. He went to the extreme of killing her because he knew he wouldn't be able to stay away otherwise.

Bright Is Not Good: Ego's planet (and thus, Ego himself), is brightly coloured, and the Guardians find it beautiful. As it happens, Ego agrees, so much so that he wants to consume all other worlds in the cosmos and turn them into extensions of him. That being said, as Ego's true nature keeps revealing itself, this also reflects on the surface of his planetary self, which goes from an idyllic paradise to a hellish, sinister wasteland.

Redemption Equals Death: Yondu's first truly selfless act in his life, namely giving the only spacesuit he has to Peter so that his son can survive in space results in his death. The redemption is two-fold, as he not only redeems himself as a person, but that and helping stop Ego redeems him in the eyes of the Ravagers.

Unskilled, but Strong
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_f25b1ae6
comment
Unskilled, but Strong: Ego is one of the most powerful beings in the universe (even Thanos would likely have trouble facing The Living Planet on his home turf) but he falters when he meets someone that is his equal, his son Peter. While he was holding back during the initial phase of the fight because he needed Peter to power his plan to destroy the known universe, once Peter figures out how to control his Celestial powers he gets thrashed. It's possible that being a Physical God for so long and never meeting a lifeform he found "worthy", he never bothered to learn how to fight as he could overwhelm any opposition with his power.

Product Placement
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_f511ea9b
comment
Product Placement: Done in a tongue-in-cheek way. After his Walkman gets destroyed, at the end of the film Kraglin gives Peter a Microsoft Zune that Yondu found in a junkyard. Contrary to popular belief, while hardly the massive success of the iPod, Zunes did have a strong cult fanbase and several hardware iterations before the devices were discontinued in favor of the software platform that lives on as Groove. This would also explain how Peter kept his Walkman running all these years without visiting Earth. Dairy Queen is featured at the start of the film. Dairy Queen helped promote this film with a special promotion. The beginning of the film uses the old restaurant since it's in the '80s, while later in the film it changes to the newer DQ Chill and Grill as it's now set in 2014.

Weapon of Choice: Lampshaded, when Peter gets insecure when he sees Gamora using a rifle instead of her usual sword, as he thinks "guns were my thing." Gamora herself points out they're about to fight a Starfish Alien, and so she's going to stick with a gun this time. Then justified when Gamora's gun runs out of ammunition, so she switches back to her trademark sword which is the only weapon she has left to exploit a wound in its neck to gut the beast.

Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Ego is so convinced in the worthlessness of other forms of life that he killed his lover for being a distraction, and expected her son to agree with him. He's equally baffled that he's willing to give up immortality and enormous power to save the universe. He also genuinely doesn't understand why Peter has a problem with his plan to destroy the universe or why anything he's done is wrong, including murdering children. They were in his way and/or no use to him so he got rid of Them. That's what happens to puny mortals who stand in the way of powerful beings.

Meanwhile, Drax and Mantis are drowning in quicksand. Gamora and Nebula are about to be squeezed to death by Ego's energy tentacles. Baby Groot is trapped in the cave passage which closes up around him, threatening to detonate the bomb. Peter gets impaled by Ego's energy tentacles and moans in pain. The Blob Monster advances on the planets, killing innocents by the thousands. Time for Peter to tap into his 11th-Hour Superpower and save the day.

Don't Explain the Joke
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_fabef10f
comment
Don't Explain the Joke: Drax helpfully points out why Mantis revealing Peter's feelings for Gamora is hilarious. Unfortunately, this leaves Drax the only one laughing.

Meta Casting: Star-Lord's father, Ego, is portrayed by Kurt Russell, a popular 80s action hero that people Chris Pratt's age most likely grew up watching. This not only ties into making Ego appear as a badass father figure to Peter, but makes his role as the Big Bad much more shocking and hard-hitting.

Tranquillizer Dart: Among the traps that Rocket has set up around the crashed Milano, there are tranquillizer dart shooters that take out a few of the Ravagers.

The Dog Bites Back
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_fb3576b2
comment
The Dog Bites Back: The much-publicized scene of Baby Groot running after a Ravager, screaming furiously, before throwing him off a catwalk, is Groot's revenge against that man in particular for screaming at him while he was locked in a cage, soaking him with a foul drink, and even stomping on him as the other Ravagers mockingly call him their mascot.

Platonic Co-Parenting: The adult members of the team — Peter, Gamora, Rocket, and Drax — are shown raising Baby Groot together. In the opening sequence, each of them gets brief moment showcasing their individual relationships to Baby Groot while fighting the monster.

Comically Missing the Point
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_fbd285b7
comment
The monster's skin is too tough to cut? Well, don't try to cut it from the inside — it's still just as tough, you're just stabbing it from a different angle.note There is a slight flaw with this scene, as the point in getting through the skin is to get to the soft tissue organs behind it, yet Drax still tries to get through the hide when he's already in there. Also counts as Comically Missing the Point.

Peter blatantly states that his relationship with Gamora is that of a Will They or Won't They? couple, à la Sam and Diane from Cheers, and that they can't resolve Unresolved Sexual Tension, because ratings will surely go down once they do.

Brick Joke
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_fe0330fb
comment
The first two-thirds of the film act like a Mood Lightswitch Rave, to the point where individual lines in the same scene can quickly shift between drama and comedy. A few of the Brick Jokes in the final third also carry the capacity for whiplash, most notably Peter summoning a giant Pac-Man made of rocks.

The Corrupter
 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 / int_fe6c146e
comment
The Corrupter: Ego tempted Yondu to break the Ravager code and traffic him his children. As he admits, he did it knowing that doing so would involve Yondu to break his code, but preyed on him by offering more money than Yondu would ever know. His plot is carefully manipulating Peter to become his puppet, heir and battery to harvest the universe and he preys on Peter's unfulfilled longing for Gamora, his need for family and revealing him to be an immortal superbeing like Daddy with the universe as his oyster. He's effective until he gets too confident and starts slipping and starts spilling the beans about his true nature.

With seconds before Ego goes up in smoke, Yondu rockets Peter out of there, and puts the spacesuit on his adopted son, living long enough to tell Peter he's So Proud of You before freezing to death in the vacuum of space.
