If I had to worry about my sisters every time I wanted to do something, I'd never do anything.

—"Along Came a Sister"

Lincoln Loud is the main character of The Loud House.


At 12 years old, Lincoln is both the middle child and the only son of the Loud family, as well as the sixth oldest. He attends the 6th grade at Royal Woods Middle School.

As revealed in "Not a Loud", Lincoln was born in the limousine of the President of the United States. After Vanzilla broke down, the President's limo picked up the Loud parents on the way to the delivery room. When in the car, Lincoln needed to get out then, so the President tried to deliver Lincoln but fainted. Lincoln was delivered by the First Lady of the United States.

The episode "Deal Me Out" reveals that Lincoln has had broken back teeth about since he was 5 years old.

Lincoln often speaks to the viewers about how he gets around his often-chaotic household, the insane antics of his ten sisters, and other things he's doing, and it makes him break the fourth wall. He possesses a habit of reading comics, manga, and novels in his underwear.

Lincoln speaking to the viewers.

Lincoln is a good-hearted and well-meaning person, who is always looking for fun, and thinking about the well being of others. As the family nerd, along with Lisa, Lincoln is an avid fancier of comic books, manga, video games, fantasy, and science fiction stories, which are typical interests for a boy his age. His favorite comics are Ace Savvy, David's Castle, and Comix Jokes. His favorite music band is SMOOCH, as seen in "For Bros About to Rock" and "Yes Man."

He is known to be "the man with a plan," as he is usually elaborating plans with a specific objective, most of them for his own benefit. His plans rarely succeed because of his own selfish and reckless decisions or by his sisters' interference. When he goes too far, he will always find the solution even if that means making himself look like a fool, as seen in "Cover Girls", "Making the Case", and in "Sleuth or Consequences."

Lincoln's best friends are Clyde, Liam, Rusty, Zach, Ronnie Anne, and Stella. Sometimes, he tries to hang out with other kids, but the rest of his social life has not been explored and it's been revealed that when he tries to make new friends, they're always being mean to him, as seen in "Save the Date" and "Hand-Me-Downer."

He's a very individual person with limited experience of teamwork in contrast to his sisters who cooperate as roommates, which was shown in "It's a Loud, Loud, Loud, Loud, House."

Most of the time Lincoln is quiet and relaxed, but sometimes he gets upset when he is annoyed, or when something goes wrong. Also, he has proved to be very patient, especially with his sisters. His greatest fear is the family falling apart, as shown in "Butterfly Effect", along with being hated by his sisters, as shown in "Making the Case."

Something that Lincoln has shown is that he is a multi-faceted person. Thanks to a life of living with ten sisters, each with a different personality, he is adapted to them, so he can communicate with any of them, and help them with their activities without a problem. Living in a female-dominated family caused him to develop typically feminine traits, like kindness, sensitivity, cooking, beauty pageant knowledge, and sewing skills.

He acts as the "Jack of All Trades" to all of his sisters. He is not as good as his sisters in what they do, but he is competent enough to impress and help them in what they are doing: such as helping Lucy write her poems, being one step ahead of Luan in her pranks, preventing Lisa's experiment from exploding by adding a chemical, assisting Leni with her fashion designing, and catching Lynn's football in "Project Loud House." He is also the only one Luna complemented when the Loud House siblings were playing instruments in "House Music."

The episode "Study Muffin" showed that he's a responsible student, has good grades, and doesn't need a tutor, unlike Lynn, Lucy, Lana, and Lola. This makes him the second smartest of the Loud siblings, after Lisa.

Lincoln is incredibly calm, as in the episode "Not a Loud," he wasn't panicking about the possibility of being adopted. He was also calm when he was telling his parents about the clues that made him believe he's adopted.

Nick Description

"As the middle child and the only boy, Lincoln is often used as a lab rat, or fashion show participant. On the plus side, he gets his own room. Even if it is a converted linen closet. To survive in this house, Lincoln always has to have a plan. With 10 sisters and 1 bathroom, he has to!"

—Nickelodeon, 2016


Like most of the characters, Lincoln is very skinny and has a large, round head with short white hair, with a large tuft of his hair sticking upwards on his left side and two strands sticking up on his right. He has an overbite, with a prominent chipped front tooth, noticeable bags around his eyes, and freckles on his cheeks. Like some of his sisters, he also has grayish purple eyelids. In "Making the Case," it is revealed that he has one strand of chest hair. In "The Whole Picture," Lincoln had grown his first mustache hair.

Lincoln's white hair.

His white hair is a very unique feature that Lincoln has. He is the only one in the family with this hair color, as his sisters are either a brunette or a blonde (except for Lucy, whose hair is black, and as of "Spell It Out" and "The Whole Picture," it is proven to be her natural color).

Lincoln wears an orange polo shirt, blue jeans, gray socks with blue and red stripes, and white sports shoes with red stripes. His sleepwear is an orange nightshirt with matching pants, but sometimes he wears an orange t-shirt and his underwear. His swimsuit is a pair of orange swimming trunks. He always reads his comic books in white briefs and socks, but on some occasions, he reads his comic books in his full outfit.

His winter outfit consists of a red coat with red gloves, a brown hat, and brown boots. He also wears brown ice skates.

Lincoln's second-oldest sister, Leni, is quite fond of his white hair. She says it reminds her of their Pop-Pop, and gets defensive if anybody mocks Lincoln for it, as shown in "Chore and Peace" and "Ties That Bind."

Alternate versions and alter-egos

Linka Loud

In the episode "One of the Boys," when Lincoln wishes he had a life with ten brothers, he is sent to an alternate universe of such. When he realizes that having brothers instead of sisters is not as great as he thought it would be, he tries escaping and wound up in a dimension where he is a girl named Linka and is the middle child and only daughter of the eleven Loud children. Upon realizing that she is in the wrong dimension, Linka screams, only to wake up discovering the whole situation was only a dream.

The dimension with Linka Loud and her ten brothers seems to be more or less the same as the world with Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters—one of the only real differences being that the genders of the Loud children are reversed. The brothers seem to be just as caring and protective of their sister as the sisters are of their brother, and just like Lincoln, Linka's the only one of the Loud children to have more than four letters in her first name, as all ten of her brothers have four-letter first names.

Ace Savvy

In the minicomic Deuces Wild!, Lincoln and Clyde imagine themselves as the superhero Ace Savvy, and his sidekick One-Eyed Jack respectively. In this version, Lincoln has great detective skills, and maybe super strength and flight, and also wears a suit similar to Ace Savvy's. In the comic, he and Clyde must battle against a giant gas monster, but it proves to be very difficult to harm, so Ace calls for backup with his entire deck, consisting of different heroines (all of them interpreted by Lincoln's sisters). Together, they fight and defeat the gas monster, and save the day. The troop then prepares to fight against a garbage monster. (Although, in reality, all they were doing was changing Lily's diaper and taking the trash out).

In "Sleuth or Consequences," Lincoln dresses as Ace Savvy for a convention, but unfortunately gets grounded and misses the convention.

He appeared again in "Pulp Friction" when he and One-Eyed Jack were held captive by Wild Card Willy.

In "The Whole Picture," Lincoln remembers a time he dressed as Ace Savvy for Halloween in the past. Seeing as Lucy was present and not a baby at the time, he would have been between the ages of five and ten.

He appeared again in "Tricked!," when he and Clyde dressed as Ace Savvy and One-Eyed Jack were trick-or-treating.

In "Deal Me Out," Lincoln dresses as Ace Savvy again, though begins to wonder if he is too old as he has almost grown out of his costume. He also remembers dressing up as Ace Savvy for Halloween at age five and meeting Clyde.

In "Crimes of Fashion," Lincoln dresses as Ace Savvy to investigate the disappearance of some scarves at the store Leni works at. When he was feeling discouraged, he considered giving up wearing his Ace Savvy suit, but then a remark from Leni inspired him and he solved the case.

In "Kings of the Con," Lincoln attends a convention dressed as Ace Savvy.

In "Recipe for Disaster," Lincoln dresses as Ace Savvy while investigating a mystery involving some frozen dinners using the same recipes as Lynn Sr.

In the game Ace Savvy on the Case, Lincoln dresses as Ace Savvy to investigate various mysteries.

In "White Hare," Lincoln imagined how difficult it is to live with 15 extra sisters. He then got knocked unconscious and dreamt he was a rabbit named Warren with twenty-five sisters. Not much is known about Warren, but, like Lincoln, he tried to dress up as a greaser to impress a new student.

In the siblings' story in "A Dark and Story Night," Lincoln imagines himself as a space cowboy named Triton.

Linc the White-Haired

10HB Jumping to attack

In "10 Headed Beast," Lincoln imagines himself as a warrior named Linc the White-Haired.

Linc the White-Haired resembles Lincoln, but is fully grown, very muscular, has long hair, and wears brown boots, black studded arm bands, a black belt with a large buckle, an orange loincloth, and a necklace. Despite his age, Linc the White-Haired sounds exactly like Lincoln.

He was bored, and so his companion C'lyde (an alter-ego of Clyde), tried to help him steal a TV remote-like device from a ten-headed beast that resembled the Loud sisters.


  • Before "Net Gains" (although he is mentioned in that episode), Lincoln was the only character to appear in every single episode of the series.
    • "Good Sports"/"Geriantics" is the first episode where Lincoln is absent from both segments (if not counting the Casagrandes storyline).
  • Since he is the main character of the show, he appears on the title card for every episode.
    • This also applies to episodes that do not revolve around him ("House Music," "Back in Black," "Patching Things Up," "Pets Peeved" etc.), as well as episodes where he does not appear at all ("Net Gains", "Fandom Pains", "Missed Connection", and "The Write Stuff," to name a few).
    • The only exception to this tradition is with the Casagrande story arc that occurs during the first nine episodes of Season 4, where Ronnie Anne takes Lincoln's place of appearing on every title card, as well as the episodes having its focus on the Casagrande family instead of the Loud family.
  • The colors of Lincoln's shirt and pants, orange and blue, are complementary colors, which are colors directly opposite from the color wheel.

  • In Lincoln's room, there is s toy that looks like a green-headed dragon without arms. It resembles the monster King Ghidorah from the Godzilla franchise; although, King Ghidorah is golden in color.
  • There is another toy in Lincoln's room that resembles the Mazinger mech from the Mazinger franchise.
  • According to some information from The Loud House on Instagram and Facebook:
    • He has been wondering why his hair is white, and there have been fan rumors about such.
    • The best advice he ever received, is to always have a plan.
    • His favorite foods are pizza and grilled cheese with grape jelly.
    • His favorite animal is Lana, even though she's a human but acts like one.
    • The best thing about having 10 sisters is that they'll always have your back.
    • If he could go to any place in the world, he would go to the moon.
    • His and Ronnie Anne's relationship is complicated; in his words, "I like her as a friend, and yes, she is a girl, but as far as she's concerned, the sloppy joe down my pants says she is not my girlfriend or otherwise."
    • He can't remember a time where he didn't have Bun-Bun in his life.
      • "Not a Loud" supports this fact when it was shown on his baby book that he has had Bun-Bun since he was a toddler.
    • SMOOCH is his current favorite band, but he also likes some of Luna's mix-tapes.
    • He and Clyde met by bumping into each other while cosplaying as Ace Savvy and One-Eyed Jack, respectively.

  • Lincoln is right-handed.[5]
  • Lincoln often breaks the fourth wall to explain what he is doing, the progress he's on, and what he has learned in the beginning, middle, and/or end, respectively. When he does it, almost every time he says, "But in a family as big as mine..."
  • Besides being the only son in the family, Lincoln is the only one of the Loud family to not have a four-letter name, except for dubs where his siblings' first names are translated.
  • In some captions and translations for "One of the Boys," Lincoln's alter-ego "Linka" is translated to "Linda", probably out of auto-correction.
  • It is uncertain as to why Lincoln's hair is white. Chris Savino has confirmed it is not a result of albinism. One popular theory as to why it is white is because of the effects of stress since coming from a large family can be very stressful. It looks like he inherited it from Pop-Pop. However, Pop-Pop most likely has white hair because he's old. Also, in "The Whole Picture," it's shown that Lincoln's had white hair since he was a baby, suggesting that he was most likely born with white hair and it isn't a result of stress. Not even he and his family know why his hair is white. It is possible he inherited from both of his grandfathers since they both have white hair, meaning his white hair is a recessive trait.
  • Lincoln was named after the street Chris Savino grew up on, which was named E Lincoln Ave.
    • Before he was given his final name, Chris Savino said that Lincoln was either going to be named Luis, Leo, or Leon.
    • Besides, Lincoln being in a family of ten sisters is a reference to the fact that Chris Savino comes from a family of ten children, five of whom were daughters. Savino's the ninth of ten children.
  • In "For Bros About to Rock," his first concert was the first concert that Luna did not ruin. She almost did when they were in line to get tickets, but she made up for it and gave him an unforgettable time.

  • Lincoln's stuffed rabbit, Bun-Bun, is modeled after his original design when the show was originally about a family of rabbits.
  • During production, Lincoln was the last one of the children to be named.
  • A lookalike of him appeared on a billboard in the Disney XD series Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
  • Lincoln seems to be a good teacher, as he used only a manual to teach Leni how to drive, Lana how to dance with a ribbon, Lily how to play chess and video games, and Lola how to read.
  • When Lincoln turns his head, the strands in his hair never turn with his head, instead they stay in the same spot.
  • According to an episode of the Nick Animation Podcast, before Lincoln was decided to be the middle child, there were versions where Lincoln was part of the elder siblings and another where he was part of the younger ones.
  • A running gag is of Lincoln needing to think of shorter names for his operations.
  • Lincoln's winter gear resembles Charlie Brown's winter gear.

    • This means that Lincoln, Luan, and Lisa are the only ones who can understand Lily's babbling.
  • As shown in "The Whole Picture," Lincoln may have chipped his front tooth around the time Lucy was born.
    • As also shown in "The Whole Picture", during his birthday, the trees had left leaves, and there was no snow. That suggests that Lincoln was most likely born during spring or summer.

  • Between the time that Lynn and Lincoln were born, Luna was the middle child of the Loud family.
  • Lincoln was born in the limousine belonging to the President of the United States.
    • This may be the reason why his name is Lincoln, as it was the name of a former U.S. president (Abraham Lincoln).
  • Lincoln appears to have 3 different designs as a baby:
    • The first is on the "Baby Steps" title card, where he has hair and is wearing footy pajamas (Chris Savino).
    • The second is in "The Whole Picture", where he has less hair, but still has the same footy pajamas (Jordan Rosato).

  • "Speaking Sibling" reveals that sometimes his sisters tell him to do bizarre things as a result of mishearing requests, but that he is adept at deciphering what the original request was. He refers to this ability as "speaking sibling."
