As of Sunday, October 28th I have decided to quit Gaia Online, which most likely will be permanent for my own personal reasons, it is something I have been considering for some time now, and will leave anything of value to dear friends of mine to keep or do what with as they please. Anyone interested in still speaking with already knows where to find me. Goodbye.
Worked hard to code and make this layout so I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't steal anything. Thanks.

Noodle is the official lead guitarist of the Gorillaz. She was born in Osaka, Japan on October 31, 1990. As of the events of the El Mañana Incident, she had disappeared for approximately four years. However, she was seen on the cruise liner M. Harriet, which was subsequently attacked by pirate jets and sunk. Noodle was seen fleeing in a yellow dingy, where she is last seen with a gigantic Russel, and is assumed to be on her way to the Plastic Beach. During her absence, her position as the band's guitarist was substituted by the Cyborg Noodle, supposedly made by Murdoc from Noodle's own DNA.
Prior to being a member of the Gorillaz, Noodle(whose original name is unknown) spent a portion of her childhood in Japan as a subject of a classified Japanese super soldier project under the management of the Japanese scientist, Mr. Kyuzo. Noodle along with the 22 other children were trained with the sole purpose of fighting as soldiers of the Japanese military and government. After the children were deemed too dangerous and unstable for combat, the project was scrapped. Mr. Kyuzo was then ordered to dispose of all possible traces of the failed experiment as well as its participants. After killing the other 22 children, Kyuzo was reluctant in killing Noodle. Rather than killing her, Kyuzo placed her in a state of amnesia through use of verbal commands. The phrase used to place Noodle in her state of amnesia was known as, Ocean Bacon. After temporarily clearing her memory of the project, Kyuzo smuggled Noodle to the United Kingdom in a FedEx crate and falsely reported her death(along with the other 22 children) to his superiors. Noodle arrived at the doorstep of Kong Studios in 2000. Once the crate was taken inside, Noodle sprung out of the box and preformed a guitar solo (which 2D described as "200 demons screaming in Arabic. Brilliant!"). She ended her solo with a 20ft hi-karate kick before bowing and saying the word "Noodle". This resulted with her earning the name "Noodle" and replacing Paula Cracker as the bands lead guitarist.
Phase 1: 2000-2001
Noodle was about ten or eleven, at this phase. She mainly played guitar, but also provided vocals for the Gorillaz. In numerous videos, idents and music videos alike, it became obvious that Noodle was talented in much more than just music. She is also proficient at martial arts. At this time, she could speak no English, except for a few phrases like "Yeah" and "Duh" and, of course, her lyrics. She also knew the English for "noodle", which was the first thing she said when she arrived at the Gorillaz doorstep, earning her name.
Post-Phase 1 to Pre-Phase 2: 2002-2004
After the bands abrupt breakup, Noodle traveled back to Japan by herself to learn about her forgotten past. During her stay, she visited a sushi bar in Osaka where she heard a waiter tell the bars chef that he needed an order of "Ocean Bacon". Upon hearing the phrase, Noodle simultaneously regained all memories of her previously concealed past(which included her ability to speak fluent English as well as every other known foreign language). After her sudden revelation, she returned to Kong Studios which fell into a state of disrepair during the bands' absence. She also discovered that the studio had become infested with hoards of the living dead(zombies). Using Kong's security surveillance room as a "safe house", Noodle slowly cleansed the complex of its unwanted inhabitants. During her stay at Kong Studios, Noodle laid out the concept plans for the 2005 album, Demon Days. After completely ridding the building of zombies, Noodle embarked on another mission to reunite her former band members.
Gorillaz Phase 2: 2004-2008
This phase featured the album Demon Days, written by Noodle herself, which contained the song DARE, the first song featuring Noodle doing almost everything, including instrumentals and singing. At the end of this phase, a terrible crash occurred with the flying windmill from Feel Good Inc. during the El Mañana video in which Noodle's parachute failed after escaping the choreographed helicopter attack. Murdoc said she was, in fact, alive, and they had staged the crash to get rid of Jimmy McManson, who had hid away in the windmill, thinking he was part of a plot to get rid of Noodle and take her place. Murdoc claimed, in the Gorillaz book Rise of the Ogre, that Noodle was "off in the Maldives, just chilling out". However, in the epilogue of the book, a transcript of a radio broadcast is printed out from Noodle:
"Murdoc!!!!! Russel...Is there anybody there??!!! It's me, Noodle......Is there anybody there!!!! You need to reply...... Helllloooo!!! Come In.....It's Noodle... I've found the missing......they're coming!!!!.....(quieter)the reception here is really terrible...(Back to normal volume) MURDOC!!!!!!......Murdoc!!!! Come in!!!! They know where you.........Mur........It's coming from..........Murdoc MAYDAY...MAYDAY...Murdoc!!!!! COME IN GORILLAZZZZ!!!!!"
Another similar but different radio broadcast could be heard in the basement of Kong Studios on the official Gorillaz website.
Murdoc later "confessed" that Noodle was stuck in Hell, but he had saved her(allegedly). He finally concluded with the statement that Noodle actually had died in the El Mañana Incident.
Gorillaz Phase 3: 2010-present
our years after her disappearance, Noodle embarked on her journey to reunite with her former band mates. She was formally seen last in the On Melancholy Hill video, sporting an Oni-like mask on board a cruise liner known as the M. Harriet. During the voyage, a crew member notified her that the ship was being attacked by pirates and offered to escort her to safety. Without speaking, Noodle opened her luggage and armed herself with a Thompson submachine gun. It is assumed that she is seeking revenge for being marked dead by Murdoc. After shooting down one of the two pirate fighter planes, Noodle was forced to abandon the M. Harriet which was sunk by a dive bomb torpedo that was released by the second plane. She is later seen in a life raft being lifted out of the water atop Russel Hobbs' head, who is currently in a noticeably larger physical state per usual. The two can be seen in several Phase 3 pictures presumably traveling together.
Name: Cyborg Noodle
Place of Origin: Unknown
Date of activation: January 1, 2009
Age: 2 (designed to appear 20 years old)
Cyborg Noodle is 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 was previously unknown. 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. 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.
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.
The Escape to Plastic Beach:
On December 14 2009, Cyborg Noodle assisted Murdoc in the abduction of the bands 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 1969 Chevrolet Camaro known as the Stylo. Suffering from some unknown complication, 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.
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.
