        Rocket doesn't even know what a raccoon is. He started out life as one however. In the animated cartoon. He, his mom, and sibs were shown as plain old raccoons. Rocket was the runt of the litter, but as runts everywhere go, he's very scrappy.

                  Maybe Rocket could be one of the children of Thanos. In Endgame, when he went with the Avengers to find him, Rocket said "oh no" when he saw Thanos after the Infinity Gauntlet was chopped off and the stones vanished from it.

                                    Rocket: “I’ve been genetically engineered to fly a space craft.”
                                    Later in the movie...
                                    Yondo: “I know the scientists in the lab never gave a rats ass about you... . I know who you are boy because you are me”
                                    Closing scene to Yondos funeral was Rocket crying.
                                    My theory is that Rocket is a form of Yondo. All they care about is themselves and the money for the most part. Both got a thing for Peter. Rocket was created to fly Yondo’s space craft and to “squeeze into places that adults couldn’t” Then Rocket was forgotten till Peter came into the picture and took Rockets place.

                                        Honestly I feel bad for Rocket because he was torn apart and put back together.

                                                I think is youndo who is the creator because when youndo say he know him why do you think he knows that.

These are all the best theory’s of Rockets back story I’ve ever heard, it’s really sad to realise that he has to have thing in his mind of his past he is desperate to forget.
