* "We Got the Power" and some of the Humanz promotional performances feature singing and guitar from [[Music/Oasis Noel Gallagher]] of all people, indicating that their bitterness from the blur vs Oasis rivalry is well and truly over.

* Noodle posted a message to 2D on Instagram for his 39th birthday. Aside from all the other comments filled with birthday wishes, there's this response from 2D himself:
-->'''2D:''' Thanks for the present inside the UPS box several years ago.

* In the story, there's something sweet about how 2D's dad had the family name [[UnfortunateNames "Tusspot"]] legally shortened to "Pot" before 2D's birth so that his son wouldn't go through the same crap that he did because of it.

** It's the first time we see 2D smile since ''Plastic Beach'' too. [[spoiler: Pity Murdoc hits him with a shoe later.]]

** Seems to have been ''proven true'', as the music video "Saturnz Barz (Spirit House)" showed all four members ''getting along'' and trying to find a new home (possibly after the events of "[=DoYaThing=]") and even after the [[MushroomSamba weirdness]] they all endure, they're out of the house and '''''Murdoc''''' of all people asks if anybody wants breakfast. Guess aside the ''usual'' weirdness, the lives of the Gorillaz are going back to the simple times of the ''first album''!

* In the "We Are the Dury" interview CD, Russel begins to describe the loss of Del and the struggle he went through trying to make his own album during his own misadventures, only for ''[[JerkAss Murdoc]]'' to calm him down, as he was getting a bit too deep, which even ''he'' felt would not help Russel's mental state. He even says [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold "It's best not to dig too deep, dark place this one"]]. Not bad for the satanist who chloroformed 2D.

** In this [[https://justapassingnoodle.tumblr.com/image/160024285056 Phase 1 interview]], when Noodle is asked if the guys pick on her because she's ten years old and a girl, she replies no, and that they take care of her ''because'' [[TheBabyOfTheBunch she's ten years old and a girl]]. She also talks about how she loves the guys because Russel is a {{Nice Guy}}, 2D smells nice and [[PlatonicLifePartners shares a Zen bond with her]], and Murdoc [[HonoraryUncle makes her laugh]].
-->'''Question:''' If you weren't in Gorillaz, what band would you like to be in?
-->'''Noodle:''' I like playing with other people but [[TrueCompanions I really don't want to be in any other band]].

* Also from "We Are the Dury", [[EruditeStoner 2D's]] input for the title track of Demon Days is... rather beautiful.
-->'''2D:''' Remember when you were a little kid and you would look at the clouds in the sky as the sunlight bounced off them? And something that simple would make you feel a part of everything, and all alone at the same time. And the feeling's not something you can ever put into words, so you spend your whole life chasing it. Making music, taking pictures, painting, whatever. In the hope that other people will understand that sense or... feeling. As creative entities, we look for signs of life outside ourselves for a connection to alleviate the sense of solitude. That's why we all do what we do. Whether we know it ourselves or not.

** It should also be noted that ever since the "El Mañana" incident, Noodle's life has been pure hell (figuratively and [[IncrediblyLamePun literally.]]) After she had escaped from there, she was almost always violent, angry, hurt, or a combination of all three throughout the Music/PlasticBeach saga. Fast forward to 2012, when we see what the Gorillaz are up to in their new (temporary) home. Noodle only appears briefly in "[=DoYaThing=]," but when we see her, she's taking a [[EarnYourHappyEnding long-deserved rest]] and looks content for the first time in [[ThrowTheDogABone years.]]

** Later in the interview, 2D, Noodle, and even [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Murdoc]] compliment Russel's drumming skills, calling him the best live drummer they've ever heard.[[note]]This becomes a {{Crowning Moment Of Funny}} when you find out that Cass Browne, the live band's drummer at the time, also wrote the dialogue for the characters' interviews.[[/note]]

* In an [[http://www.dazeddigital.com/music/article/35725/1/we-skyped-every-member-of-gorillaz interview with Dazed]], Noodle says that she comforts "2D when he has a bad dream, Murdoc when he has a bad trip, and I calm Russel down when he gets paranoid about the world’s problems." Awwww. She's also clearly taken the El Manana incident in stride, merely making a quip about how she hasn't had to make her own tea in ages because Murdoc's still groveling over it.

* [[https://youtu.be/HSivlaSVk1k "We Got The Power"]] from ''Humanz'' has to be one of the most uplifting things they've ever recorded. It's a song about how amazing humans can be with ThePowerOfLove. In light of recent world events, some of which [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped were even addressed by the band]] in "Hallelujah Money", seeing them come out with a message like this is all the sweeter.
