- "I am Groot!"
Groot and his new allies managed to kill off all of Thanos's forces, Thanos came to Wakanda. The Mad Titan completely overpowered Groot and the heroes and retrieved the Mind Stone, completing the Infinity Gauntlet. Groot disintegrated into ashes alongside Sam Wilson, T'Challa, Bucky Barnes and Wanda Maximoff when Thanos wiped out half of every civilization in the universe with the completed Infinity Gauntlet but was later restored by Bruce Banner.
After the original Groot's sacrifice, the four remaining Guardians entered the Milano, Rocket was holding a pot with a stick popped out of it. Rocket looked down to discover Groot had begun regenerating, as the stick now had a face and arms.
Baby Groot danced to the Jackson 5's I Want You Back while Drax was cleaning his knife. Drax turned to Baby Groot, but he stopped dancing, Drax returned to cleaning his knife, and Baby Groot continued.
