** Murdoc fits one or both in everything he's in. In about half of his appearances he's naked, shirtless, and constantly gyrating in one way or another.

** Murdoc fits one or both in everything he's in. In about half of his appearances he's naked, shirtless, and constantly gyrating in one way or another. Special mention goes to his appearance in "Saturnz Barz", where he spends the majority of the video naked with only pixelation covering his crotch.

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: 2D once introduced himself on a radio interview by saying "Hi, my name's 2D, and I'm the singer, and I play the piano, and I need the toilet..." and Murdoc chose the middle of another interview as an appropriate time to claim that he lost his virginity at age nine.

** "DARE" and "El Mañana" feature Noodle, and Noodle only. The other three made cameos in "DARE"; Murdoc is the only one with lines and speaks only a sentence. Noodle says in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnBEZ2QvMwY an interview]] that the reason 2D and Russel were [=WTFing=] during the video is because she didn't warn any of them that she was going to record the clip.

* EnsembleCast / RotatingProtagonist: Other than [[DemotedToExtra Russel]], the [[VillainProtagonist remaining]] [[UnfazedEveryman three]] [[ChildSoldier members]] of the band have pretty equal stake for the title of TheProtagonist. Murdoc tends to drive the plot, Noodle's past is one of the main story arcs, and 2D is the FaceOfTheBand and the viewpoint character during the majority of events.

* FanservicePack: Noodle was made a bit more feminine for ''Demon Days'', as she ages in real-time and went from ten to fourteen between albums. By Phase 3, both Noodle and the Cyborg are much more femininely shaped, and Noodle wears a dress and lipstick.

Added DiffLines:

** The first one, "Tomorrow Comes Today", uses real backgrounds behind the 2D characters.
** Later clips, starting with "Clint Eastwood", mix traditional animation with many CG elements. In "19-2000", the Gorillaz themselves are in 3D for wide shots, though still 2D for close-ups.
** Likewise, "Rock the House" has several CG-animated characters, including Del the Ghost Rapper and the inflatable gorilla cheerleaders.
** "Feel Good Inc.", "Dare" and "Dirty Harry" add live-action to the mix (with guest stars Music/DeLaSoul, Shaun Ryder and Bootie Brown, respectively).
** Later clips have the characters more and more often in 3D, including for "live" performances. The MTV European Music Awards 2005 in Lisbon had the three-dimensional Gorillaz ''on stage'', thanks to an updated version of the old Victorian parlour trick named "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppers_Ghost Pepper's Ghost]]". Repeated for the Grammy Awards 2006 in Los Angeles, this time alongside {{Music/Madonna}} as guest-star.
** In the latest phase, the clip for "Stylo" is almost entirely live-action with just three of the Gorillaz in quasi-realistic 3D [[spoiler:(and Creator/BruceWillis as the antagonist)]].
** "On Melacholly Hill" returns the characters to 2D [[spoiler:(save for Cyborg-Noodle who stay CG-rendered, to keep her appart from the real Noodle)]] amongst plenty 3D vehicles, creatures and backgrounds.
** The clip for "Saturnz Barz" also has the group in 2D, ConspicuousCG demons interacting with them and very realistic backgrounds.

* NewSoundAlbum: All of them, really: ''Gorillaz'' laid the foundation of the band's sound, ''Music/DemonDays'' introduced a darker, more theatrical version of that, ''Music/PlasticBeach'' took ''that'' and added a tropical vibe (along with over a dozen guest artists), and ''The Fall''... somehow managed to be even more of a departure than the others, going in a completely new direction and incorporating elements of ambient, blues, and chillwave.

It's fair to say that Gorillaz doesn't bother putting out a new album unless they're doing something new.
