* FanPreferredCouple: It's a tie between [[HoYay 2D×Murdoc]] and [[LikeBrotherAndSister 2D×Noodle]] -- Murdoc×Noodle is also popular, but not to the extent of the other two. In the earlier years of Gorillaz, 2D×Noodle was more popular, but 2D×Murdoc has gotten more popular these days, mainly due to their large number of interactions.However, these are both the subject of heated debate due to UnfortunateImplications, and many fans would rather have nothing to do with it.As one tumblr user put it-
-->Anyone who ships is oblivious to the fact that all the ships have already been sunk.

Added DiffLines:

** To a much less severe extent, most fanfics severely downplay 2D's less savory characteristics (such as his fathering of a dozen illegitimate children) and make him a full on NiceGuy. His intelligence is also generally boosted by a few IQ points.

* KudzoPlot: Phase 3's storyline is generally agreed to be a borderline incomprehensible mess of various plot threads that get introduced and dropped at a moments notice, all strung together by an incredibly UnreliableNarrator. This was largely a result of Phase 3's TroubledProduction, which resulted in several instances of RealLifeWritesThePlot that forced the storyline to be dramatically altered multiple times. Eventually, it was all hurriedly resolved secondhand by one of Murdoc's radio broadcasts... which was eventually retconned by both the [="DoYaThing"=] video and the early storylines of Phase 4, rendering almost the entire Phase moot.

* MagnificentBastard: Oh Murdoc, why must we hate to love you?

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The Evangelist, who was designed as [[BigBad the Boogieman's]] GoodCounterpart and foil, as well as the only person capable of offering Murdoc a chance at redemption. A fan contest was held to create a design for them, with the winning design getting redrawn by Jamie Hewlett himself, along with promises of the character going on to become a major part of the storyline in the future. Instead, the Evangelist makes a short cameo at the beginning of the second chapter of the adventure game to deliver a package and is otherwise completely forgotten about.
** The Boogieman himself is an example. The only recurring antagonist the band faces in their videos, as well as a mysterious KnightOfCerebus, he would have made for a compelling character if only Phase 3's TroubledProduction didn't result in the storyline getting CutShort, causing his motives and origins to never get revealed and his conflict with Murdoc receiving no resolution.

* CreatorsFavorite: Noodle is Jamie Hewlett's favorite character and, while she isn't without her detractors, she is generally well-liked by the fanbase.
