Ronalda Anne "Ronnie" Santiago[n 1] is a supporting character from The Loud House, and the main protagonist of its spin-off, The Casagrandes. She is Lincoln's other best friend and former classmate. She also happens to be the younger sister of Lori's boyfriend Bobby.
Ronnie Anne is Lincoln's best female friend, and former classmate, who moved to Great Lakes City to live with her extended family, the Casagrandes. During her time in Royal Woods, and before they became best friends, she frequently bullied and humiliated Lincoln in front of his peers. Now a student on the honor roll at Cesar Chavez Academy,[n 2] Ronnie Anne was known as the toughest girl in Royal Woods Elementary School.
She was first mentioned (but does not appear onscreen) in the episode "Heavy Meddle", in which she constantly bullies Lincoln and humiliates him in front of his peers. When Lincoln's sisters find out about it, they tell him that she's bullying him because she likes him and wants to get his attention. Thinking they might be right, Lincoln goes and kisses her when he tries to confront her, and she responds by giving him a black eye, seemingly proving his sisters wrong.
However, the sisters' statement turns out to be right after all, as she then gives Lincoln an apology letter with her phone number on it, and a steak to heal his eye with.
Save the Date
She makes her first on-screen appearance in "Save the Date". In this episode, Lincoln's classmates tease him about Ronnie Anne's crush on him, resulting in him giving a speech about how he refuses to even consider her as his girlfriend.

To set things right, Lori makes Lincoln go out with Ronnie Anne on a double date with her and Bobby so he can apologize in person.
Throughout the date, Lincoln gradually finds himself bonding with her, but things get awkward when his teasing classmates show up at the restaurant, and Lincoln, after a failed attempt to sneak out without them noticing, ends up insulting her again. Lincoln promptly apologizes to Ronnie Anne for his behavior and shares his first real kiss with her.
The next day, when Lincoln is still being teased by his classmates about this, she slaps him in the face and acts as though she doesn't like him, but once his classmates had left the scene with sympathy for Lincoln, she passes him an ice pack with an apology letter, saying she hopes that stopped the teasing, meaning their break up was fake.
April Fools Rules

He and the rest of his sisters try locking her up so she can't prank anyone, but that fails as she escapes and sets up her prank traps everywhere. Not wanting Ronnie Anne to suffer, he takes all the pranks for her. But when she arrives, Luan reveals that she told her to come over for a prank they set up together. Ronnie Anne has a pie and Lincoln fears she's gonna hit him with it, but she turns on Luan and hits her with it instead because she was grateful to Lincoln for taking all the pranks for her.

However, Lincoln, fearing what she could do to the egg, makes an excuse to see Lisa, since she's at a nearby table, much to Ronnie Anne's frustration. During art class, Ronnie Anne makes a surprise, forcing Lincoln to hide in the supply closet. While hiding in the closet, Lincoln hears Ronnie Anne say that once school ends, she's going to get the egg, and won't fall for any excuses.

Lincoln enters the house and sees the egg, completely safe. When Ronnie Anne exits the scene, Lincoln discretely swaps the real egg with the fake egg. Just as he's about to leave, Lincoln notices that Ronnie Anne is a thoughtful and helpful person, as she removes a splinter stuck in Bobby's finger, washed all of his work uniforms, and already has dinner prepared. Realizing that Ronnie Anne is not as reckless as he thought, Lincoln decides to put the real egg back. Suddenly, the fake egg begins bouncing around, and Ronnie Anne takes note of this. When Ronnie Anne realizes that there are two eggs present, Lincoln, realizing he has been caught, backs up to avoid Ronnie Anne's incoming wrath after saying that he thought he couldn't trust her with taking care of something so fragile. Suddenly, he bumps into the table, causing the real egg to fall and break. Heartbroken at the fact that they're going to flunk the assignment, and at how Lincoln perceives her, Ronnie Anne tells Lincoln to leave.

Mrs. Johnson decides to let Ronnie Anne have a second chance. However, they won't be rewarded with the big waffle breakfast, but Lincoln doesn't care, just as long as he and Ronnie Anne get the assignment done. Ronnie Anne, grateful for what Lincoln did, invites him inside since they're having waffles for breakfast. After walking into the kitchen, Ronnie Anne suddenly grabs the egg and breaks it against a bowl. However, this just turns out to be a prank, as she still has the egg in her pocket.

She chases the board-napper into the park, where she sees - and is momentarily amazed by - the board-napper's exceptional boarding skills. The moment she sees that it's her cousin Carlos, who was known as "Carlos X" during his time in college, she wants to learn some of his tricks. However, he made a promise to Frida that the moment they had kids, he would stop shredding; seeing this, Ronnie Anne decides to make this a secret operation.
The following night, Ronnie Anne is able to pull off one of Carlos X's tricks before Frida is awakened by Lalo drooling on her face. The next day, the issue in Ronnie Anne's plan is quickly shown by Carlos being visibly sleepy. Carlos can now only teach her one last trick, one where the two skaters will swap their boards once they reach the highest vertical points. The two are able to perform the trick flawlessly, though Carlos is badly injured due to his board slipping away.

As Ronnie Anne pitches her idea that her dad stays in the city, Arturo shoots her suggestion down, as his Peruvian job is very important to him and the community there. Seeing this, Ronnie Anne decides to forge bad grades to convince Arturo that she's flunking school (despite getting good grades and making the honor roll), and gets herself a delinquent makeover, which is very effective.

In "Guess Who's Shopping for Dinner?", Rosa has Ronnie Anne buy some ingredients. However, Ronnie Anne wanted to go to a movie, so she bought them from Hi 'n' Buy instead of following Rosa's instructions. When she finds out that Rosa was expecting a food critic, Ronnie Anne admits what she did and the two go off and buy the ingredients the way Rosa wanted.
Rosa apologises for making Ronnie Anne miss the movie, but Ronnie Anne says that the trip to get the ingredients was as good as being in the movie.
In "Blunder Party", Ronnie Anne has a slumber party with her friends, but Carl and Adelaide want to join in. She tries to kick them out, but Carl tells Rosa, who sides with Carl.
Carl and Adelaide get in the older kids' way and spoil their ghost stories, so Ronnie Anne sends them away by making a scavenger hunt. However, when she thinks they've gone to the dump, she becomes very worried and confesses to her wrongdoings.
As it turns out, though, Carl and Adelaide were not at the dump.
Fails from the Crypt
In "Fails from the Crypt", Ronnie Anne wants to spend a night over at the Great Lakes City cemetery, in the hopes of breaking a long-standing local record established by the "Fearless Four" over four decades ago. While Hector, Rosa and Sergio initially relent, Ronnie Anne uses her ability to do the puppy eyes to convince Hector to go.
As the night begins, the kids are initially confident in their ability to stay there for the night, though as the night goes on, they slowly lose their confidence and take off running. Just as Laird leaves, Ronnie Anne and Sid, the former wanting to break the record, no matter what, and the latter suggesting they forfeit, but are also scared out, all by the Fearless Four, having reunited in the hopes that their own record is forever kept. The next night, the kids' attempts to break the record is foiled even more by both the Fearless Four and Carlos and Maria.
The Fearless Four, Carlos and Maria all apologize to the kids for their meddling, just as the Sun rises. Seeing everyone survive the night, Rosa declares that three generations - the elders, adults and kids - now hold the record for the longest time spent in the cemetery, and changes the name of the Fearless Four to the Fearless Twelve.
In "Cursed!", Ronnie Anne follows her family, who was following with Rosa's claims that the city is "cursed" after Ernesto Estrella cancelled a scheduled trip, to the Loud House, where they bunk with the Louds for a day. Following Lisa's idea to show Rosa that bad luck can happen anywhere, they sabotage the pancakes Rosa was cooking, the Casagrandes' clothing and the toilet. The latter causes the toilet to flood, proving Rosa right. Because of this, she takes Ronnie Anne and the Casagrandes out into the woods.
On a short detour to Flip's Food & Fuel, Ronnie Anne discovers Ernesto's tour bus and confronts him about his lie, all due to a pimple. He offers to "cleanse" the family, which apparently works; satisfied, the family heads back to Great Lakes City.
In "Prankaversary", Lincoln is paying a visit to Ronnie Anne's place to celebrate their yearly "Prankaversary" - a competition where Lincoln and Ronnie Anne pull pranks against each other to see who's worthy of the title of Prank Master. Ronnie Anne is in the process of setting up the first few pranks as Sid offers to chip in and assist Ronnie Anne, though the latter is rather concerned as Sid isn't up to date with her pranks. Just as Sid leaves her apartment area, Lincoln arrives, managing to dodge the first few pranks set up.
With Lincoln here and Sergio as the ref, the prank battle begins. Lincoln starts to set up prank traps at the Mercado while Ronnie Anne and Sid plant a fishy surprise in his backpack; planting a particularly stinky fish. However, the strong smell escapes the room due to Sid opening the window, causing the alley cats to storm the room and attack Ronnie Anne. This is the first of many backfires and lost points (which makes her go into the negatives). Due to Sid accidentally tripping the prank in one way or another (in one occasion getting Breakfast Bot involved, injuring Sergio and even getting her abuela involved, the latter instance causing her to ban all pranks in the apartment), Ronnie Anne continues to receive point deductions. Wanting the clearly inexperienced Sid off her back, Ronnie Anne offers her to go spy on Lincoln, but she once again trips his prank, causing him to lose 10 points.
Calling a truce, Ronnie Anne tells Sid that she is not experienced enough in the art of pranking to participate, and Sid, surprisingly taking it well, decides to go to the Great Lakes City Zoo. This is also the moment where one of Ronnie Anne's pranks finally work against an intended target, as Mr. Inflatable sends Lincoln flying. The prank war continues as Adelaide is accidentally roped into this (once again deducting Ronnie Anne's points), where she tells the two that Sid is in trouble. Little did they know Sid has prepared a surprise for the two.
At the zoo's reptile enclosure, the two initially think that a snake swallowed Sid full. They try to free her, though Sid and the zoo animals ambush the two, revealing the lump is actually a giant turkey. By the end, Ronnie Anne received -8 points and Lincoln -10, with Sid being the surprise winner with 2 points.
Ronnie Anne's first appearances initially depicted her as a very surly, tough and mean-spirited girl who sometimes came off as unkind and somewhat cruel, though later appearances - mostly following the episode "Friended!" - depict her as a nice, friendly and compassionate person who is kind to everyone and has a knack for planning, just like Lincoln, her first best friend, whom she deeply cares for; in the city, Ronnie Anne has made another best friend in Sid Chang, and "An Udder Mess" shows she doesn't want to disappoint her two best friends, wanting the best for them. In addition to Lincoln and Sid, her closest friends, she has also befriended a group of city kids by the events of "City Slickers", along with Laird following "The Two of Clubs". After Ronnie Anne moved to Great Lakes City, she and Lincoln would occasionally hold video chats (sometimes vlogs) to catch up with each other's lives and hang out in general, and either friend would occasionally come over to their house to visit (which occasionally happens on Lincoln's side from "City Slickers"), or to sleep over (the latter which happened on Ronnie Anne's side when Rosa roped her family into thinking all of Great Lakes City was cursed in "Cursed!").
Ronnie Anne is a compassionate and forgiving person, as shown by her accepting Lincoln's apology after he insulted her and apologizing herself for the sloppy joe in "Save the Date" and Lincoln trying to ditch her when she was trying to look for him to ask him to the arcade in "Dance, Dance Resolution" (though he thought she was trying to ask him to the Sadie Hawkins' dance). In regards to earlier episodes, her gratefulness and kindness is also shown in "April Fools Rules" where she pranks Luan in return for Lincoln protecting her from Luan's pranks. In addition, as seen in "Shell Shock", Ronnie Anne appears to be less chaotic than she is credited for, as she is shown doing gratuitous tasks for her family and taking great care of an egg.
Ronnie Anne is a hardcore tomboy who seems to dislike girly things (in "Dance, Dance Resolution", she calls the Sadie Hawkins' dance "lame"), and enjoys more boyish hobbies, such as skateboarding, pranks, and video games. Her goal implies she enjoys cooking too. In regards to her tomboyish demeanor, she is shown to dislike cheesy romance, and kissing, evident upon barfing at the nicknames Bobby and Lori give each other along with their kissing and saying that her Abuela and Abuelo's anniversary trip is "the mushiest, but sweetest thing [she's] ever heard" in "Power Play". Although she is still a tomboy and known for disliking girlish activities, she would still dance to Yoon Kwan for Sid or do anything else that she wouldn't do otherwise.
However, Ronnie Anne is also sensitive, insecure and fragile, and she doesn't like to be misjudged. She teared up when Lincoln called her out as a "rude, gross and totally annoying" person in "Save the Date" and initially expressed her feelings to Lincoln through tough love, one of many instances by pranking him, thus humiliating him in front of the school (in addition, Lincoln's sisters deduced correctly in "Heavy Meddle" that she had a crush on him, but was too shy and prideful to properly show them, so she used pranks and the aforementioned tough love to gain his attention). They became best friends following the events of "Save the Date", and both their rocky relationship and this tough love, while mostly shown in earlier episodes, would seemingly disappear by the time of "The Horror-Scope", their relationship stabilizing by then.
Ronnie Anne is a Mexican-American girl with dark tan skin (tan in season 1), black hair worn in a low ponytail, freckles on her cheeks, and two buck teeth that stick out of her mouth. She wears a purple hooded jacket, blue jean shorts, a white tank top, and purple flats with light pink socks worn high. Her nightwear consists of a light purple shirt, and dark purple pants with white socks. Now, her clothes are darker.
In Season 1, her jean shorts were initially blue.
In Season 2, her jean shorts are now a darker blue with her skin and jacket becoming darker.
Starting with Season 3, she now has bags under her eyes, likely from the stress of dealing with a big family like Lincoln.
In her prototype design, her skin was light, her hair was red, her sweatshirt was yellow, she wore black sandals, and she didn't wear any socks.
