Thanos' Goal in Guardians of the Galaxy


While the Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy is supposedly dead, players learn a lot about him through conversations with their Milano crewmates. Since Gamora is Thanos' daughter, she reveals details about the Mad Titan và how he's impacted the universe prior khổng lồ the events of the Guardians of the Galaxy game. Conversations with Gamora reveal an interesting detail about Thanos' overall goal, indicating that it's more in line with the comic book version of the character instead of the Marvel Cinematic Universe version.

In the MCU, Thanos has a twisted way of ensuring that the galaxy has enough resources for civilization to survive, and his solution is to lớn "snap" half of the living creatures in the universe from existence. Thanos accomplishes this goal by collecting the Infinity Stones, attaching them lớn the Infinity Gauntlet, and then simply snapping his fingers. Thanos successfully achieves this goal in Avengers: Infinity War, though his efforts are reversed during the events of Avengers: Endgame.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos genuinely believes he is doing the correct thing by wiping out half the universe, as it's his way of preventing future suffering like what befell his planet.

Gamora confirms that this is Thanos' motivation in the Guardians of the Galaxy game during an optional conversation between her and Star-Lord, triggered by finding a specific collectible. During the conversation, Gamora explains how she và her sister Nebula were tasked with locating the Resistance. Gamora was the first to vì so & was excited khổng lồ report her findings khổng lồ Thanos. However, she walked in on him talking to lớn an empty room khổng lồ Lady Death, the literal embodiment of death in the Marvel universe.

Gamora then realized that Thanos wasn't really interested in restoring balance khổng lồ the universe as he led her to lớn believe. On the contrary, Thanos in the Guardians of the Galaxy trò chơi universe is in love with Lady Death and wants lớn win her affection by killing as many living creatures as possible. This is what triggers Gamora khổng lồ join the Resistance, eventually leading her lớn become a thành viên of the Guardians of the Galaxy team.


During the events of the Guardians of the Galaxy game, it's established that Thanos is dead, & it was his death that ultimately helped the Resistance win the galactic war. The story goes that Thanos killed Drax the Destroyer's family, và so Drax became obsessed with killing Thanos himself. Drax acquired an ability that allowed him to lớn sense Thanos' life force, và he used this power lớn track the Mad Titan down.

In a conversation between Drax & Peter Quill, the Destroyer details his fight with Thanos, which took place on an isolated moon. The fight reportedly went on for days, with Drax remembering delivering a final blow, but then blacking out và waking up in a hospital some time later. Drax confides in Star-Lord that he believes Thanos is actually still alive, as he can still somewhat sense him.

The events of the Guardians of the Galaxy trò chơi seem to lớn set up Thanos as a villain for a potential sequel, which would make sense as the game introduces one of the Infinity Stones và leaves Thanos' fate ambiguous. It's entirely possible that Thanos is dead in the Guardians of the Galaxy game universe & that he was killed by Drax the Destroyer, but it's also possible that he survived the battle & is regrouping somewhere, lying in wait for his time khổng lồ strike.


Even though Thanos is supposedly dead in the Guardians of the Galaxy đoạn phim game universe, players still come face to lớn face with a version of him. At one point in the game, the Guardians of the Galaxy enter Drax's mind to miễn phí him from the Matriarch's "Promise," which essentially brainwashes people by making them think they are interacting with their dead loved ones. While in Drax's mind, the Guardians have khổng lồ square off against endlessly multiplying Thanos clones.

It's here where the player can get a good look at Thanos as he appears in the Guardians of the Galaxy game universe. It seems that the developers went for a combination of Thanos' MCU appearance & his comic book appearance.

If a Guardians of the Galaxy trò chơi sequel is ever produced, it's possible that fans will learn more about this version of Thanos. However, nothing has been announced at the time of this writing, so it's possible that the Guardians of the Galaxy trò chơi will be a one-off experience.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
