Cyborg Noodle - 1600 x 1200
Cyborg Noodle is the newest member for virtual band Gorillaz created for their album Plastic Beach. In the storyline, she was created by the band leader, Murdoc, as a replacement for the band's original guitarist, Noodle, whose whereabouts were allegedly unknown. She was created through the use of cybernetic prosthetics as well as some DNA samples of Noodle that were salvaged from the wreckage of the flying windmill island which was destroyed in the "El Mañana" music video. She serves as both a guitarist and a "gun-slinging bodyguard" for Murdoc.
Aside from her built-in knowledge of musical instruments and theory, Cyborg Noodle also has a vast knowledge of weapons and fighting techniques, as well as basic skills, much like Noodle. Unlike the original Noodle's reserved and calm nature, Cyborg Noodle was programmed by Murdoc to take on even the riskiest tasks without hesitation by any means necessary, making her in some ways a robotic mercenary. She seems to malfunction in "Stylo" due to a thunderstorm halfway through the video and having been previously shot in the head, but later repairs herself, as seen in "On Melancholy Hill".
