So it may come as a surprise that one of their movies has the highest body count ever to be seen on screen. The movie in question is not Thor or Iron Man or Captain America. It is, surprisingly the action-comedy movie Guardians Of The Galaxy.

According to a study from financial services website Go Compare, Guardians has the most on-screen deaths of any movies since the 1940’s. The movie holds this title, due in large part to the villain Ronan, who killed 80,000 Nova Corps. members. With the deaths of other characters and henchmen in the movie, the body count comes to a startling total of 83,871 people being killed on screen. Here is a list of the nine other films behind Guardians:

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn has written a post on his Facebook page about this “win.” The director, known for his sense of humor wrote:

“This is a massive visual effects sequence that took hundreds of visual effects artists thousands of hours to put together. I can’t tell you how many dozens of times I made them redo the sequence for it to look just right – but I know we were still getting revisions hours before I boarded a plan to begin the press tour in Singapore.

I hope our heroic CGI Nova Corps members know they didn’t die in vain. Not only did they help stop their planet from being destroyed, they garnered a rather sketchy world record in the process.

RIP Garthan Saal and company.”
