Noodle is a fictional Japanese British musician, singer, and member of the British virtual band Gorillaz. She provides the lead guitar, as well as some occasional lead and backing vocals for the band. When first conceptualising the depiction of a guitarist for Gorillaz, Hewlett was initially considering depicting her as a year-old adolescent girl carrying guitars, but Albarn noted that the idea was too similar to what Hewlett usually draws and suggested that Hewlett should create "something different". Taking Albarn's advice, Hewlett came up with the first official Noodle, a year-old Japanese girl. Noodle first came to the Gorillaz when they were a trio composed of 2-D , Murdoc and Russel after their original guitarist and 2-D's girlfriend Paula Cracker was caught having sex with Murdoc in the toilets of Kong Studios, which resulted in her being fired from the band. As a result, the band was left needing a guitarist, so they ran an ad looking for one. Later the same day, a FedEx crate arrived at Kong Studios, and a little Asian girl popped out and started playing on her guitar, as 2-D later described it, "The riff to end all riffs". After shredding on her guitar, she spoke a single word to the trio, and it became her nickname: "Noodle".

After spotting the only awkward looking punter sat alone, not playing chess, she takes two wooden clipboards from the bar and makes her way over to sit down before throwing one of the menus across the table. Introducing herself, she removes a folding wooden chess set from the pocket of her jacket, which is now slumped over the back of her chair. She sets up the chessboard between us on the table ready to play, before perusing the menu. After ordering some gyoza dumplings and tofu yakitori, Noodle straightens up the board between us and brings my attention back to it. Removing her cap, she places it on the table and pushes a white pawn across the chessboard. Since then a Change. Noodle is the only member of the band to have reached out to Murdoc while in jail, with 2D even seemingly suggesting he was happy to be rid of him in a recent interview.
