Cyborg Noodle (2009-) was a robotic replica of Gorillaz guitarist, Noodle.


Cyborg Noodle was created by Murdoc Niccals on Plastic Beach from using the real Noodle's DNA samples he gathered from the crash site where the "El Mañana" music video was filmed. This robot clone was given the job of performing guitar on the "Plastic Beach" album as well as being Murdoc's personal bodyguard.

Gorillaz Phase 3: 2008-2012

In the music video for the single, "Stylo", Murdoc, 2-D, and Cyborg Noodle were pursued by a law enforcement agent for speeding on an open highway in the Stylo Camaro belonging to Murdoc. 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 lost track of the three when they dive into the Pacific Ocean. Upon their descent into the ocean, Stylo transformed into a shark-like submarine.[1]

In the music video to the "On Melancholy Hill" single, 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 band's 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 Boogieman, 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.

In the storyboard video for the "Rhinestone Eyes" video she is seen shooting at the Boogieman who appears attacking 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. [2]

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. This was later revealed to be a lie on Murdoc's part, as the Book of Murdoc notes that Cyborg joined Murdoc in his escape, serving as a perfect shipmate on the submarine.

Gorillaz Phase 4 (2016-)

In an interview with 2-D and Murdoc, 2-D stated he was in contact with Cyborg Noodle, clarifying that she was at Lincolnshire at the time of the interview to meet fans and test a new bike she had purchased. Murdoc also stated that she will return to the band for live performances.

In a reddit AMA when asked if Noodle met Cyborg Noodle, she replies that she has and that she has her head upside down on her coffee table with a bonsai tree growing out of it.

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 which causes her to malfunction during "Stylo."
  • 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.
  • In  interview with US Weekly, she has shown habits that may be seen idolizing many celebrities. These habits are as followed:
    • Lighting a candle and listening to Justin Timberlake album Justified on a weekly basis.
    • Being known to have a crush on "the charming Robert Pattinson" and taking a liking to the Twilight films.
    • A more subtle nod, looking up to many artists, such as Aritha Franklin and Robert Palmer.
  • This is a direct contradiction to the real Noodle's views, seeing as she started the Reject False Icons campaign.
