They have their own Awesome Music section in TV Tropes available to view [[AwesomeMusic/{{Gorillaz}} here]]. They have become one of the most recognizable trip-hop groups around, all while being an animated band.

* IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow: Murdoc claimed he thought Russel was using an UnusualEuphemism when he mentioned he'd been "living in Music/IkeTurner's basement". Russel actually meant it literally.

* {{Mondegreen}}: How "DARE" came about. The lyric was originally supposed to be "It's there", but Shaun Ryder kept pronouncing it like "It's dare", so they decided to make that the name of the song instead.

* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Noodle, but we don't yet know what really happened to her or whether she even went to Hell in the first place. This being Noodle, though, it's well within the realm of possibility.

* 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.



* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: 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. *ThickLineAnimation: A defining trait of the style of Phase 1's artwork.

** [[AntiHero The Anti-Hero]]: Whilst Murdoc is the one that drives the plot forward, this trope is more fitting (as opposed to TheHero) considering [[VillainProtagonist his personality]].

** "Rock The House", which included the band members but was focused on and sung completely by Del.

* EpicFail: In the short "Game Of Death", Murdoc loses a fighting game... to 2D.
** Well, 2D is shown to be an avid gamer whereas Murdoc is relatively out of touch with technology.

2D. Well, 2D is shown to be an avid gamer whereas Murdoc is relatively out of touch with technology.



* MediumAwareness: It seems to vary as to whether the characters are aware that they're cartoons.
** The puppet version of Murdoc is very much aware of the fact that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wy7ZCiiQVY he's a puppet]], and that his voice was recorded by an actor weeks in advance.

cartoons. The puppet version of Murdoc is very much aware of the fact that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wy7ZCiiQVY he's a puppet]], and that his voice was recorded by an actor weeks in advance.



* NoodleIncident: Appropriately, Noodle's abduction into Hell, with Murdoc going to rescue her. For now, he's [[JustifiedTrope purposefully keeping most of what happened a secret in hopes of a movie deal.]] We're not even sure now that he actually even went to hell in the first place, he may have been drunk out of his skull. As mentioned rather explicitly below, Murdoc is an UnreliableNarrator at best.
** Essentially the entirety of Phase 3 past the initial part is one of these due to it getting cut short. What was clearly an elaborate plot was half-explained by Murdoc, but then immediately proven false when the video for "DoYaThing" contradicts several of the explanations he gives.

* {{Sampling}}: An interesting example as the sample in question doesn't come from a song. The clip heard at the beginning of "Superfast Jellyfish" (along with the sound bite of a man going "Are you kidding?") comes from an old 1980s commercial for "Swanson Great Start Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches", which can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2BCG4YZy8Y right here]].

* StealthPun:
** 2D was previously known as Stuart Pot, and spent some time in a coma -- thus, we have a vegetable Stu. Not only that, but his full name can be shortened to Stu-Pot, a pun of stupid.

* UnfazedEveryman: Despite being in a band with psychotic and super powered bandmates and living in a generally awful world filled with demons, zombies and other horrors, 2D reacts to most situations by... doing absolutely nothing, really. Justified in that he's really that stupid. Best shown in the Clint Eastwood video where, after Russel channels a ghost who then raises an army of undead gorillas to attack his bandmates, 2D ''barely'' reacts to them at all.
** Slowly removed from his character over time, to the point where he's all too aware of how terrible his world is by Phase 3.
