WE GOTTA TALK ABOUT SOMETHING: 2D X NOODLE | Gorillaz Amino
2d x noodle is the ship between: Stuart '2d' Pot and Noodle, the reasons a very special bond, but it's probably a daughter-father relationship. 2D and Noodle are often referenced to be like "a brother and a 'Taking Albarn's advice, Hewlett came up with the first official Noodle, a ten-year-old Japanese girl . Noodle and Murdoc have a mentor/student relationship. The officially released biography for Gorillaz member, Noodle. The biography has not been officially updated, therefore, do not edit it.
Mint tea is good for keeping the throat clear, and so has a reputation as a good tea for singers. Considering 2D's role in the band, it makes sense he'd have acquired a taste for the stuff. The Non-Conformist Oath is the only interlude on Humanz not spoken by the narrator himself Ace joining the band might initially seem out of nowhere, except that multiple times where both works had given a Shout-Out toward each other had already given credence that both Gorillaz and Powerpuff Girls exist in the same universe.
Also from Humility, Russel tripping 2-D over for seemingly no reason makes a bit more sense when you remember that white eyes are either a sign of being afraid, which 2-D isn't, or possession. Given 2-D's eyes go back to their usual black after he gets back up it's likely that he was possessed during the video and that Russel, the band member with the most experience being possessed, gave him an impromptu exorcism. When Ace pops the basketball in the "Humilty" video, he looks genuinely surprised when the guys playing with the basketball are not impressed.
Think about Ace's old gang ; they probably would have thought it was hilarious. One early cartoon short had the band taking a promotional picture while wearing random costumes, and Murdoc decides to dress as a Nazi generalonly to get scolded by Russel. Aside from the obvious reasonRussel in that short was dressed as Charlie Chaplinwho had a personal loathing of the Nazis himself.
That is until you realize that 2D has none of the typical cartoon Healing Factor and in fact suffers extensive injuries from accidents and the hands of his blatantly abusive band mate. This is taken Up to Eleven and brought out into the open in the Plastic Beach chapter, where 2D's been kidnapped, incarcerated, beaten and drugged by his old 'friend.
Murdoc's sentence for running 2D over and putting him in a coma was to look after the poor guy. Rumours fly about what went on that yearand even if that didn't happen, Murdoc cheerfully admits to having beaten up the unconscious 2D for fun.
Not to mention nobody objected when the Dysfunction Junction that was Murdoc, 2D, and Russel adopted Noodle, a small non-English-speaking child they found in a box on the doorstep.
It's been stated that Murdoc's distinctive puggish nose is the result of being punched in the face on multiple instances, like a boxer. Granted, most of these were his own fault, so what's the problem?
The artwork of Murdoc at 10 portrays him with this appearance, which implies that he'd already been smashed in the face several times by that age.
According to the biography, Rise of the Ogre, the total number of outright breaks in his nose is eight; once from a school bully, twice from his brother, and five times from Russel when Murdoc was caught having sex with 2D's girlfriend. Nose breakages, however, are clearly not the only injury he's suffered.
He was also disturbingly matter-of-fact about having been molested as a child, and given what we see onscreen there's only about a fifty percent chance he's making it up. Murdoc is generally hilarious in his antics, but as the story progresses and his relationship with 2D starts to take on more domestic abuse undertones, it can get a little hard to laugh.

Even ignoring certain implications that have cropped up, it's fact that Murdoc beats on 2D regularly, and that 2D is much too submissive to fight back, or simply leave. In the truest meaning of fridge horror, 2D's whole situation just gets more depressing the more it's thought about Murdoc being absentminded enough to bring up Paula during an interview while 2D was in the room led to a rather cathartic moment where 2D finally had the upper hand on Murdoc until Russ intervened.
But then you realize — 2D off his meds is not someone whose Berserk Button you want to press, even accidentally. The truth is, we all play a part in writing. Filthy little minx, that one. For them, I mean. They were overwhelmed to be in my presence again. It was pretty awkward. Do you ever worry that having so many high-profile guest features will take the spotlight off of you?
That would be like asking Emperor Nero if he felt threatened by the chumps that feed him grapes and polish his balls. I mean, apart from Morrissey.
Is it true you wrote this album in exchange for your freedom? Murdoc Niccals freed himself in order to write the album. And thereby free the minds of the people. Much like Christ, only without all those chocolate eggs. If you say so. Fucking hell, not this again.
A creative disagreement, just part of the process. Got to have shattered some sort of record, and not just his eardrum. A nice little bonus I discovered was if you push the avocado far enough, you get guacamole out of the other ear.
