Noodle had no written or recorded dialogue in phase 3. She was not a part of the recording process for Plastic Beach and instead was replaced by Cyborg Noodle on the album.
Four years after her disappearance, Noodle embarked on her journey to reunite with her former bandmates. She was formally seen last in the “On Melancholy Hill” video, sporting a cat mask onboard 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 that he was sent to escort her to the ship’s lifeboats. Without speaking, Noodle opened her luggage and armed herself with a Thompson submachine gun. It’s 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 released by the second plane. She is later seen in a lifeboat being lifted out of the water atop Russel Hobbs’ head, who is currently in a noticeably larger physical state than usual.  In the canceled Rhinestone Eyes video, she and Russel make it to Plastic Beach and reunited with 2-D and Murdoc.
Upon Murdoc’s escape from prison, he sent Noodle to Patagonia to track down El Mierda, who he claimed was the guy in the “Strobelite” video who he was talking to, and was responsible for framing him for smuggling. Noodle arrived in Patagonia but was surprised to find a short and very old man claiming to be El Mierda, who had never even heard of Gorillaz. After contacting the prison, she learned that Murdoc, in fact, had been imprisoned for parking fines, not smuggling, and he had broken out the very day he would have been released. As she vented her frustrations that Murdoc must have done this all to take attention away from 2-D, she noticed a yak approaching her in the distance. Upon closer inspection, she was shocked to realize Murdoc was tied to its back.
This phase featured the album Demon Days, written by Noodle herself (now 13-14), which contained the song “DARE”, the first song featuring Noodle doing almost everything, including instrumentals and singing.
Disguised as a geisha, she infiltrated their headquarters, The Demon’s Lounge. While Mazuu was distracted, she chopped off its head. Its earthly existence was over. Escaping Mazuu’s sumo bodyguards, she packed herself into a box with dried fish, bottled water, and a copy of Moby Dick. Her package was addressed:
One day, deep beneath the waves, she opened an unnaturally big pearl shell, and accidentally released an ancient demon from hell. Noodle learned this was Mazuu, a shape-shifting devil that could take human form. The only way to destroy it was to remove its head from its body. And so, for years, Noodle pursued Mazuu across Japan. Finally, she had tracked it down to Tokyo, where it had risen to the top of the criminal underworld.
Gorillaz – The Book of Noodle
Noodle, along with 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. 
Noodle later makes a brief appearance in the music video, “DoYaThing”, as 2-D looks into her room. Most of her facial injuries seemed to have healed since the events of Plastic Beach. However, the house they are staying in (212 Wobble Street) is suffering foreclosure; what happens next is uncertain.
Noodle is the official lead guitarist of Gorillaz. She also wrote the entire Demon Days album. Noodle was born in Osaka, Japan on October 31, 1990. She spent a portion of her childhood in Japan as a subject of a classified Japanese super soldier project under the management of the Japanese…
After the events of Plastic Beach, 2-D was eaten by a Great White Whale named Massive Dick and presumed dead. After years of consuming trash, the whale ultimately died from its diet and washed ashore.
During the Escape to Plastic Beach World Tour, 2-D wrote his Gorillaz album The Fall which, apparently Murdoc knew nothing about. A new character also appeared on Plastic Beach. His name is Big Rick, who owned a record shop on the beach. It had been reported that the shop (previously locked) would open in time for The Fall’s release.
In Heathrow, United Kingdom, a man approached 2-D and offered to drive him to West London to reunite with Murdoc and the rest of the band. After multiple failed attempts of persuasion from the man, 2-D agreed to reunite with his captor in West London to work on the band’s next album.
2-D is the very first member that Damon and Jamie came up with for Gorillaz, despite sometimes saying it was Murdoc. He was loosely based on Stuart ‘Stu’ Lowbridge, a longtime friend of both Damon and Jamie’s who has worked as Damon’s stage engineer and live music co-ordinator for all of his projects since the beginnings of Blur. Originally, auditions were held to find a singing voice for 2-D, with one serious final contender being Rob Gallagher AKA Earl Zinger. However, Damon quickly realized that was not the way he wanted Gorillaz to work, and that the proper way to do it is to sing as 2-D himself, and instead use collaborators and guests, rather than have another singer be 2-D.
The machine (revealed as the “Song Machine “) was activated on the 28th of January. The following day, the band announced their next project, Song Machine, a multimedia series of songs/music videos released episodically through 2020, as a continuously-updating playlist via streaming services.

During the Gorillaz hiatus, 2-D stayed in Los Angeles. He spent a couple of nights at Britt Ekland’s flat, but he left because of her habit of running around naked, banging on the walls and never getting any sleep. 2-D finally left L.A to work on his father’s funfair in Eastbourne. He used to collect money for a ride called ‘The Switchback Ride’, and there he met Shane Lynch, a former member of Boyzone, and they became good friends. By the time they met, 2-D adopted a teddy boy style and used to stroll the city along with Shane. 2-D didn’t really think about Gorillaz until a couple of years later, when he received a text message from Noodle and, with that, he decided to return to Kong with fully restored confidence after he realized he was responsible for the Gorillaz’ success.
After Gorillaz played their last gig at the Isle of MTV in Portugal, Gorillaz moved to Los Angeles to write a film and tension began to grow between the band members. After suggesting many crazy ideas for the film, Murdoc snapped and attacked 2-D, almost choking him. Luckily, Russel saved him, but after that fight, the band split up.
After receiving a post-card from Noodle, on the 7th of September 2019 2D sent a post-card to the band while visiting Beirut. He informed Noodle that he received parts for a machine that she had previously mentioned building, and asked what the machine would be used for. The post-card arrived at Studio 13 on the 24th of September. 
Stuart Pot (also known as 2-D, Stu-Pot, Face-Ache or Pot) is the lead vocalist and keyboardist of Gorillaz. 2-D was born on May 23, 1978, to David and Rachel Pot. His real name is Stuart Pot (his last name was often thought to be Tusspot, though his father changed his name to "Pot" shortly…
