Groot reanimates Drax, who tells them he's sorry to him and Rocket for having let his rage ruin the mission. The trio teams up to save Quill and Gamora despite Rocket is initially reluctant to accepts Drax in the mission.

Then Rocket, Groot and Drax reunites with Quill and Gamora that reveals to them that they has team up with Yondu and the Ravagers to kill Ronan and to save the universe, after a Quill's encouragement, they becomes friends.

They make a mission, during a ship battle against Ronan they enters in his ship and try to kill him but he's too powerful and being only K.O. by Rocket with his spaceship who crash that of Ronan.

Then Groot sacrifice himself to save his friends, Rocket asks him crying to stop as he will die and asks to his best friend devastated why he's doing it and Groot say to him "We, Are, Groot!" before the ship explode and Groot being killed and destroyed despite his friends survives and save the universe killing Ronan with the Power Stone.

However after the final battle, with Xandar and the whole universe safes, Rocket had rescue a twig of Groot and plant it on a vase of earth making his best friend reborn and resurrect, Groot despite now reborn and starting to regrows to his original size and currently is a neonate he still have the same mind and he remember everything despite his baby condiciones.

Then with their past crimes cancelled they becomes a hero team named "The Guardians of the Galaxy", then they travels to new adventures with the repaired Milano with the Jackson 5's song "I Want You Back" with Groot dancing on this song.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Groot is the main and central deuteragonist of the film and one of it's main protagonists overall, and serves as a comic relief character whenever he is around. He currently became a baby as he have the nickname of Baby Groot, he now has a period when he is more ingenue and defenseless making the Guardians sometimes fall in trouble to protect him. He is once going to be the main protagonist of the film according to commercials and trailers, but he has some scenes of saying "I AM GROOT!" when the film is released, making him the film's central deuteragonist.

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Endgame

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Groot appears as one of the residents of Oh My Disney.


Groot is usually very gentle and warm, displaying kindness towards innocent life. However, he can also be merciless and brutal towards his enemies, especially if they threaten his friends. He once extended his arm and put it into a row into numerous Kree before they got to him, Drax, and Quill.

As a baby, Groot can misinterpret the simplest requests, which was exhibited when he was having trouble bringing Yondu's prototype fin and pressing the "death button" on the bomb used to kill Ego.

He is loyal to Rocket and the other Guardians, and was even willing to die to protect them, as shown in the Battle of Xandar, when he willingly sacrificed himself to save his friends.
