"Blah, blah, blah. We're all very fascinated, whitey, but we'd like to get paid."
"How would you like to get paid?"
"What do you think, fancy pants? Units!"
Rocket Raccoon and the Collector[src]

Units, also known as credits, are the main form of intergalactic currency used across many planets.


"I'll take ten million."
"Tell her she's dreaming."
"Oh, for heaven's sake, transfer the units."
Valkyrie, Topaz and Grandmaster[src]

When Rocket Raccoon and Groot had just arrived at the Hub, they sold Rocket's Ion Cannon for thirty credits.

The crime-lord named Zade Scraggot hired Rocket Raccoon and Groot to retrieve a package with a family of Scalluscs being held in the highly secure "Uptown" section of the Hub for a thousand credits. But upon learning that the Scalluscs had money and could double Scraggot's pay, Rocket and Groot rescued the Scalluscs from their cruel fate after a brief scuffle with Scraggot and his men.[1]

Peter Quill Bounty

Peter Quill had a bounty placed on him by Yondu Udonta for 40,000 units if he was captured alive. Rocket spotted Quill on Xandar and desired to collect.

When Rocket told Peter Quill that he would need the prosthetic leg of an inmate in order for them to escape the Kyln, Quill paid the inmate 30,000 units for it. Rocket later revealed that he was joking and did not need it.

The Collector offered four billion units to Gamora for retrieval of the Orb. However, she offered to split this payment with Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Star-Lord before their escape attempt from the Kyln.[2]

When the Sovereign hired the Guardians of the Galaxy to protect their Anulax Batteries from the Abilisk, Quill explained to his teammates that the batteries are worth thousands of units a piece.[3]

Valkyrie was paid ten million units by the Grandmaster for the acquisition of Thor.[4]

In 2091 in an alternate timeline where the Earth was cracked apart, the Kree Watch, led by Kasius, sold Inhuman slaves on the underground bunker turned space station, the Lighthouse, to various interplanetary auctioneers for vast amounts of units.[5]
