Cyborg Noodle was the unofficial spiritual/artificial successor of Noodle. She was created by the self proclaimed leader of the Gorillaz, Murdoc Niccals, as a replacement for the bands guitarist whose whereabouts were unknown at the time. Cyborg Noodle was created through the use of cybernetic prosthetics as well as DNA samples of Noodle that were salvaged from the wreckage of the Flying Windmill Island which was destroyed in the El Mañana music video and a Noodle wig Murdoc bought on eBay. Aside from her built in knowledge of musical instruments and theory, Cyborg Noodle also has a vast knowledge of weapons, fighting techniques, as well as basic skills (much like her predecessor who was a notable member of an obsolete Japanese super soldier program). Unlike the original Noodle's reserved and calm nature, Cyborg Noodle was programmed by Murdoc to take even the riskiest tasks without hesitation by any means necessary; making her in some ways a robotic servant/soldier. Murdoc refers to her as his bodyguard.

Background Edit

Cyborg Noodle was created by Murdoc Niccals in 2009 as the unofficial guitarist of the Gorillaz after the disappearance of the real Noodle during the filming of the El Mañana music video in 2006. Not much is known about her personality, but she is a master guitarist and acts as a bodyguard for Murdoc.

Cyborg Noodle, as seen in her profile, appears to function like a computer, taking and processing orders, as well as programming new ones while still managing to maintain a human-like mentality. It is unknown whether she is self-aware and able to communicate vocally. However, she is probably at least somewhat aware of the fact that she is a form of artificial intelligence. [1]

The Escape to Plastic Beach Edit

On December 14 2009, Cyborg Noodle assisted Murdoc in the abduction of the band's former vocalist, 2-D from his apartment in California. They were later pursued by a law enforcement agent for speeding on an open highway in a Stylo belonging to Murdoc shown n the video Stylo. Suffering from the bullet hole in her head, Cyborg Noodle became incapacitated after firing several shotgun shells at the police officer's vehicle. The trio were then pursued by an unknown bounty hunter (Bruce Willis) armed with a revolver who later lost track of the trio when they drove their off-road into the Pacific Ocean. Upon their descent into the ocean, the Stylo transformed from a Camaro into a shark-like submarine. [2]

The Rendezvous Edit

Cyborg Noodle regained consciousness inside of the submarine. Upon regaining consciousness, she regurgitated an unusual one-eyed octopus. While the submarine continued its voyage to Plastic Beach, the trio engaged in a rendezvous with the bands collaborators who were also piloting submarines of their own individual design. Upon their arrival at Plastic Beach, the fleet encountered a mysterious assailant known as the Boogieman who was blocking the fleet's route to the studio with a manatee as a hostage. Murdoc, seemingly surprised to see the Boogiman, then ordered Cyborg Noodle to dispose of him with hostile force. The trio then climbed topside where Cyborg Noodle commenced her attack on the Boogieman. After firing two consecutive solid slug shells with her Remington 870, the Boogieman dragged the manatee into the sea and the fog cleared, revealing Plastic Beach. On the storyboard video for the Rhinestone Eyes video she is seen shooting at the Boogieman who appears atttacking Plastic Beach. Later on near the end of the video the now giant Russel comes out of the sea and stares at Cyborg Noodle.Then the real Noodle steps out of Russel's mouth.Cyborg Noodle looks shocked,while the real Noodle pulls off her cat mask showing the bruise on her eye caused by the attack at El Manana.Noodle stares at Cyborg Noodle while the video ends.

Although a showdown against Noodle and Cyborg Noodle was never shown it's said in an interview with Murdoc that Noodle killed the cyborg when it started going "wonky" (or she malfunctioned) and tried to kill Murdoc.

Trivia Edit


Cyborg Noodle without her "face".

  • The design and concept of Cyborg Noodle could be a reference to the T-1s from the Terminator franchise.
  • Cyborg Noodle sports a bullet hole that passes through her forehead, yet doesn't seem to be affected by it in any way.
  • Cyborg Noodle is the only character in the On Melancholy Hill music video to be computerized three-dimensionally while all of the other characters in the video were two-dimensionally drawn and animated.
  • This could be because she malfunctioned in the Stylo music video, therefore not able to switch between 3-D and 2-D like the rest of the band.
  • As proof of how incomplete Cyborg's programming is, in an interview with US Weekly, she shown to like the "Twilight" movies, whereas the true Noodle started the Reject False Icons campaign.
