In the Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket or Groot choice, choosing to sell Groot will earn you at least 9537 units from Lady Hellbender. As the last of his kind, Groot is an enticing sell for the monster collector, and if you let Drax deal with the negotiations, you can actually gain closer to 12,000 units. 

However, as you sneak your way through Lady Hellbender’s fortress, Groot is unable to lie about the plan, and the team are led into a trap. It is in this trap where you must fight the Dweller-In-Darkness. However, both picks in the Guardians of the Galaxy sell Rocket or Groot choice lead to this boss battle.
