The Guardians of the Galaxy saga concluded with Vol. 3 after treating MCU fans to plenty of humorous moments from the space-faring lovable misfits.

Whether Drax is offering unsolicited advice or admiring Thor’s physique, the reformed Kylosian intergalactic criminal constantly blurts out remarks that either majes everyone burst out in laughter or think. Among Drax’s many great lines, a few are more iconic because of the message and delivery.

Rocket Raccoon is one of the funniest MCU characters because he tends to use others as fodder for his jokes. During an argument with Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Rocket threatens to put Drax’s feces in his bed to teach him a lesson. It’s something he would obviously never do, but it turns out to be so funny that Drax reacts to it.

Drax’s response highlights his pride and self-love. While there is obviously nothing to brag about, Drax boasts about his feces just to add emphasis to Rocket’s threat. He implies that since his feces is huge, Quill ought to be worried because his bed will become quite messy.

9 “My Reflexes Are Too Fast. I Would Catch It”

Guardians Of The Galaxy

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax talks about metaphors in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 1

Rocket jokes about Drax’s intelligence in Guardians of the Galaxy, claiming that any metaphor would “go over his head” because his species isn’t intelligent. Drax fires back with a retort, arguing that his reflexes are too good for anything to go over his head without him noticing.

Drax’s hilarious quote shows that he takes everything literally. Still, it’s a perfect response because Drax makes it clear that although he might not be the smartest, he is good at physical tasks, something that makes him very beneficial to the group.

8 “He Is Not A Dude, You’re A Dude, This Is A Man… A Handsome, Muscular Man”

Avengers: Infinity War

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax watches an unconscious Thor in Avengers Infinity War 1

Avengers: Infinity War is one of the best MCU movies because it perfectly blends tragedy and humor. Thanos’ actions trigger plenty of danger and action, but many other characters get to have fun, specifically Thor and the Guardians.

Thor befriends the Guardians when the space travelers rescue the Asgardian from a wrecked ship. As Quill wonders how the “dude” is still alive, Drax makes sure to remind him that Thor is different. The roasting session continues as Drax explains the difference between a “dude” and a “handsome man,” insisting that Quill is the former because he is not good-looking.

7 “Kill One Guy… One Stupid Guy, Who No One Loves”

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Nebula, Star-Lord and Drax suit up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

While preparing for a mission in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Drax starts negotiating with Peter Quill about killing their enemies. He insists that they should kill everyone who gets in their way, but Quill disagrees and thinks a no-kill rule should remain. Not one to quit, Drax advocates for killing at least one “stupid” guy.

Drax’s comment shows that he is considerate and willing to compromise in his own way. The quote also highlights his amusing but flawed reasoning since he believes that as long as one is stupid, their death won’t be a big deal.

6 “When You’re Ugly And Someone Loves You… You Know They Love You For Who You Are”

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax and Mantis in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2

Drax makes more foolish comments than any other Guardian, but he isn’t totally lacking in wisdom. He proves this during a heart-to-heart conversation with Mantis in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 where he bluntly tells her that she is ugly but elaborates why that is a good thing.

According to Drax, being unattractive results in a genuine partner. Beautiful people, according to Drax, are only loved because of their looks. It’s also more likely that what people feel for them is lust, not love. At the end of the conversation, Drax’s backhanded compliment makes Mantis feel better about herself.

5 “I Hate Stories Where Everybody Lives”

The Guardians Of The Galaxy: Holiday Special

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff, and Drax, played by Dave Bautista, carry Christmas decorations in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

Drax enjoys violence so much that even the festive cheer doesn’t take his mind away from it. As such, he has one of the funniest lines in the Guardians holiday special. Drax gets frustrated when the story of how Yondu ruined Christmas for a young Peter Quill doesn’t end with any action. Mantis thinks it’s a sad tale, but Drax is angrier that the story didn’t feature any death.

Drax has never really known peace. He has had to fight all his life, so anything that doesn’t involve confrontations and altercations is boring to him. He says this hilarious comment in a light tone, since he isn’t exactly the type of character to find glee in bloodshed.

4 “My Movement Is So Slow… That It’s Imperceptible”

Avengers: Infinity War

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax argues about his invisibility in Avengers: Infinity War

Drax prides himself in having stealth skills, so he is thrilled when Gamora and Peter Quill take an hour to realize he has been standing in the room all along. He hilariously begins explaining to the kissing couple how he has mastered the art of standing still and becoming invisible.

Quill and Gamora are quick to clarify to Drax that he isn’t exactly invisible, but he keeps insisting this fact until Mantis shows up and notices him. Instead of taking back his words, he responds in typical Drax fashion: “Damn.

3 “There Are Two Types Of Beings In The Universe. Those Who Dance, And Those Who Do Not”

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Drax offers yet another kernel of wisdom when he realizes that Peter Quill is eager to date Gamora, but Star-Lord isn’t sure about what to do because they are very different. Drax explains to the Guardians leader that people are different, and the fact that she isn’t like him could be a good thing.

Drax also shades Peter when he argues that maybe he needs to find someone as pathetic as him to feel good about himself. The comment forces Quill to think deeply and, in the end, he decides to pursue Gamora. Consequently, the two go on to have one of the best bonds in the MCU, all thanks to Drax.

2 “I Like Your Knife, I’m Keeping It”

Guardians Of The Galaxy

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax grabs a prisoner's knife in Guardians of the Galaxy

One of Drax’s first ever scenes in the MCU perfectly accentuates his straightforwardness. When he spots a fellow prisoner’s knife that he likes, Drax lets him know that it’ll now belong to him. Drax doesn’t sugarcoat anything; he simply states how things are going to be.

This quote makes Drax sound like a bully who would gladly take anything that doesn’t belong to him, but fans know he doesn’t do it maliciously. Drax figures he would do much more with the knife than the prisoner, and he proves it later on in Guardians of the Galaxy.

1 “I’ll Do You One Better… Why Is Gamora?”

Avengers: Infinity War

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Drax the Destroyer in Avengers: Infinity War

Peter Quill and Gamora make up one of the best MCU couples because they support and care about each other. When the Guardians and Avengers meet on Titan in Infinity War, Quill quickly demands to know about Gamora’s whereabouts. His outburst becomes confusing to Tony Stark, who asks: “Who is Gamora?

Drax soon grows tired of the “where” and “who” bickering about Gamora, so he throws in an interrogative adverb that doesn’t make sense. This quote is Drax’s way of trying to create a light moment in a serious situation. It ends up being one of the funniest quotes in Infinity War.
