Groot and Rocket are a pair of (former) criminals, partners, and best friends.
- They have been best friends and partners-in-crime since before the Beginning of the series.
- Rocket is literally the only person who understands Groot, as he often translates what "I am Groot" is.
- Throughout the entire films, Groot acts as Rocket's protector. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it's vice versa,
