At 14 years old (13 before Season 5), Lynn is the fifth-oldest child of the Loud family, and the youngest of Lincoln's five older sisters. She is named after her father. Lynn is an eighth grader (a seventh grader in the first four seasons) at Royal Woods Middle School, which she attends with her brother Lincoln. She has a habit of turning everything into a competition.
In "Time Trap!", Lynn and her siblings altered history, causing their parents to decide not to have any kids in the future. As a result, Lynn got deleted out of existence, although she returned when Lisa and Lily prevented this timeline alteration.
Lynn has been interested in sports since her infancy. As a baby, she became fascinated when she watched her sisters Lori and Luna playing catch with a ball. She kicked the ball out of curiosity, much to the surprise of her family. She also owned toy dumbbells.
Lynn became competitive at the age of one. When she was in daycare, she competed and won against the other babies for a cookie during snack time. At the age of two, she became a big sister when her brother Lincoln was born. When Lynn was in preschool, she owned a pair of boxing gloves, and she benched 100 pounds for the first time at age two.
Around the ages two and three, she played patty-cake with Luan and celebrated her victory after "beating" Lincoln at a board game. She (along with her sisters) cheered up her baby brother Lincoln whenever he got upset.
She once took a bath with Lincoln when they were little (he was a baby and she was around two or three).
At some point in her early childhood, she developed a fear of throwing up after she threw up one time and was left with the taste of her vomit for a week. Lynn eventually outgrew her fear when she got older. Lynn owned and played with a plastic basketball hoop at some point in her childhood.
At the age of seven, she sped off from Lincoln while they were trick or treating one Halloween and once ran over Lincoln's Ace Savvy action figure with her rollerblades. Lynn was the middle child of the family when Lana and Lola were born.
During her 5th grade year in Royal Woods Elementary School, she went on a field trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. She shared a bunk with another 5th grade girl and was best friends with her. This friendship did not last though since they went their separate ways once they started attending Royal Woods Middle School, and Lynn even forgot her former friend's name eventually.
In "Middle Men", Lynn confessed that she had a miserable time in her first year of middle school, describing it as a "real horror story." Back then, she was more soft-hearted, tender and sensitive, and she was humiliated and picked on multiple times by her peers in school. Because of this, she acted more aggressive and tough against others. Although it prevented her from ever being bullied again, it has just caused her to become more violent and forceful over the years. Nonetheless, she is still caring and she just didn't want her brother or Clyde to suffer like she did.
Lynn is athletic and competitive. She loves to play sports and enjoys roughhousing with her siblings.
She enjoys playing many different types of sports, including football, soccer, hockey, basketball, and baseball. She is also skilled in various forms of martial arts, such as kickboxing, Mexican wrestling (or lucha libre), and parkour. Lynn tends to turn everything into a competition - her siblings consider this to be her most annoying habit. She is also shown to be very competitive, and strives to be "number one" in every game she plays, even when winning isn't involved.
Despite her tomboyish attitude, she shows a more feminine side on rare occasions, and takes part in her sisters' girly activities. She shows no shame in using puppy eyes to get what she wants, such as bunking in Lincoln's room in "Space Invader". In "Heavy Meddle", she gets as excited as her sisters after finding out about Lincoln's romantic situation. In "Back in Black", she helps with her roommate's makeover as the rest of her sisters do. In "L is for Love", she happily sighs after Lori reads a love letter.
Lynn is very superstitious and makes up absurd assumptions, such as in "Sleuth or Consequences"; where she tells Lincoln that she never "bombs the toilet" before a big game of roller derby because it's bad luck. This is also prominent in "Intern for the Worse", where she doesn't allow her teammate, Margo, to use the bathroom, because of the same belief. In "Cover Girls", she tells Lincoln to cover for her while she is at the batting cage to hit baseballs to avoid spring cleaning, and she said if she didn't hit the first ball, she'll have bad luck all throughout the baseball season. This is shown again in "No Such Luck", where she is shown to perform good luck rituals, and unfairly believes Lincoln is bad luck when he comes to her game and she loses, ruining her winning streak. She is also shown to own a lucky jock in "L is for Love" and to have many unorthodox superstitions surrounding hockey in "On Thin Ice".
Lynn is also very immature, as shown in "Cereal Offender" when she rides on carts in the grocery store and wrecks several aisles. Another example of her immaturity is shown in "A Tale of Two Tables", where she participated in the food fight with her siblings. Another part of this immaturity is her poor sportsmanship. When she loses, she starts throwing tantrums, and if she wins, she starts gloating at others, until someone makes her realize she's hurting their feelings.
Lynn isn't above employing underhanded methods in order to win. In "Space Invader", she compliments Lincoln's wrestling ambush upon entering his room, even if it is considered cheating. Another instance occurs in "Lynner Takes All", when she tricks Lincoln into giving the wrong answer during a trivia game.
Although in "Net Gains", she may have finally learned true sportsmanship when she was put in a bad basketball team called Turkey Jerkies and since she was so blinded by winning the championship, that she forgot the real reason why they play basketball: to have fun. She even accepted her and the teams' loss with pride at the end. Also, despite being very jealous of Margo's attention in "Hero Today, Gone Tomorrow", she tried her best to suppress her jealousy and try to be supportive.
In "Sitting Bull", it is revealed that her aggressive attitude caused her to unintentionally scare the kids that she babysat, which causes their parents to fire her older sisters. After she was placed to babysit the Fox quintuplets, her methods proved effective when used on rough children, and she also give her sisters their customers back.
Since it was shown in "Middle Men" that she has grown to become more assertive and competitive because of her fear in the 6th grade, it is possible that she is just really insecure about herself and hides it by acting aggressively. If she didn't, she would be bullied forever. However, hints of insecurity can be seen in her overreliance on good luck rituals and amulets, which suggests Lynn has a lack of faith in her abilities in sports. Additionally, her competitive personality does not stem entirely from the bullying, as shown in the comic "It's Just a Phase" where she's described as being "too competitive" at age one.
In "Hero Today, Gone Tomorrow", she is revealed as she cannot handle her pride and jealousy. If she sees someone getting more attention than her, she gets extremely upset and jealous. Despite this, however, she tried to suppress her jealousy and be supportive for the sake of her friend. At the end, she finally realized that everyone takes turns being in the spotlight and started to overcome her jealousy.
Lynn is somewhat interested in romance when it comes to other people, as shown in several episodes which show that she is a fan of The Dream Boat, and in "Heavy Meddle" and "White Hare" where she shows great interest in Lincoln's love life. Despite this, as shown in "Singled Out", she is not very interested in participating in romance herself, due to finding it "mushy".
Although Lynn is very athletic, she has her limits to exercising as seen in "Health Kicked" where she's visibly exhausted along with the rest of her siblings.
Lynn has thick brown hair pulled back into a short high ponytail that is smaller than Luan's. Her ponytail is held up with a black hairband. In The Loud House Movie, however, her ponytail has a different design and is held up by a red hairband, both only visible when she is viewed from the side or back. She is slightly taller than Lincoln and has freckles on her cheeks. Despite her age, her short appearance makes it seem like she's a preteen, not a teenager. Unlike her older sisters, she has a rounded nose like Lincoln and her younger sisters (although in The Loud House Movie, it is visibly pointed when she is viewed from the side).
She wears a red and white jersey with a red "1" on it (which is revealed to be her roller derby shirt as shown in "Lock 'n' Loud"), red-and-white track shorts, and black cleats with striped white knee-high socks. In live-action, her jersey may be long-sleeved or short sleeved V-neck (as seen in A Loud House Christmas: Behind the Scenes); and her shorts may also be jogging pants instead. Also, her high ponytail is longer than Luan's, as opposed to shorter in the animated series. In the series, her socks has two red stripes, while in live-action, there are three.
In a flashback scene of "Deal Me Out", Lynn was seen as a young girl. She wore her signature #1 jersey with shorter sleeves, a red and white headband, her shorts were slightly different than the ones she currently wears, her bangs were were shaped differently and she had an extra pair of eyelashes.
Her original night-time attire consists of a white tank top, red shorts, and ankle high socks. In "The Price of Admission", the top is instead a shirt that looks like her regular shirt but without a 1. In a few more instances, she is shown wearing a nightshirt that looks like her regular jersey, with socks instead of her usual sleepwear. Beginning in the start of season 3, her usual night attire consists of a white and red sports shirt with a 5 on it and red shorts, although in a few instances post season 2, she is instead shown with her original night attire, and in "Training Day", it consists of a white tank top with a red stripe, red and white track shorts and knee-high socks that look like her regular shorts and socks, respectively. Her swimwear is a red-and-white surf shirt with matching swim trunks.
Alternate Versions and Alter-egos
Boy Lynn Loud
In "One of the Boys", a male version of Lynn appears in the alternate universe where Lincoln has brothers instead of sisters. Unlike the others, he has the same name as his female version and is pretty much the same as Girl Lynn. Here, he shares the same room with Lars and Lincoln. The only things different about him is his hairstyle and his jersey, which has a "0" on it rather than a "1".
However, Boy Lynn is shown to be even more rough towards Lincoln than Girl Lynn, punching him for little to no reason, and playing keep-away with the time watch Lincoln used to travel to the alternate universe. In another alternate universe where Lincoln is female, he is shown to be caring and protective, like the female Lynn.
Boy Lynn eventually turns out to be a product of Lincoln's imagination as the entire adventure was a dream, though Lincoln states Girl Lynn somewhat acts the same as Boy Lynn does.
In the minicomic Deuces Wild!, Lynn interprets the superheroine called Strong Suit, who is also one of Ace Savvy's sidekicks. She has super strength. In the comic, she is summoned by Savvy (played by Lincoln) alongside the rest of Savvy's deck (played by the rest of her sisters) to help him and One-Eyed Jack (played by Clyde) to defeat the gas monster. After they defeat it, they prepared to fight against a garbage monster. (In reality, Lynn and her siblings were just changing Lily's diaper and taking out the trash.)
Strong Suit made another appearance in "Pulp Friction", where She fights off Wild Card Willy's Goons with an enhanced strength with a headbutt in Lincoln's comic for a contest to meet with Bill Buck, creator of Ace Savvy.
In "Kings of the Con", Lynn goes to the convention dressed as the Strong Suit, impressing the people there especially when she wins the strength test.
Bailey is one of the rabbit sisters, and a rabbit version of Lynn who is sporty just like Lynn, along with Bertha.
Bertha is another sporty rabbit shown in Lincoln's dream in "White Hare." She's sporty like Lynn, but wears orange clothes instead of red.
Tricksy is an alien version of Lynn, who she made up for the story she and her siblings were telling in "A Dark and Story Night."
Like Lynn, Tricksy has a brown ponytail and red shorts and likes to play basketball. Unlike Lynn, Tricksy is very tall and muscular, has green skin, antennae, and three eyes, and wears red wristbands and a red tank top (although, like Lynn's shirt, Tricksy's shirt also has a "one" on it.)
In the story, Tricksy was playing basketball and using shards from a crystal needed to produce electricity on her shoes to give her super speed. The story's protagonists beat her at baseball so she had to give up the shards as part of a bet, and Lincoln's alter-ego, Triton, gave her his anti-gravity shoelaces in exchange.
