Rusty Spokes is a supporting character in The Loud House and a minor character in The Casagrandes. He is one of Lincoln's classmates and close friends.


Rusty Spokes is the eldest son of Mr. Spokes and older brother of Rocky Spokes. Rusty and Zach are best friends, much like Lincoln and Clyde. He speaks with a squeaky, high-pitched voice. Rusty is one of Lincoln's classmates and a friend to him.

As shown in "Hand-Me-Downer", he was also a member of the local bicycle gang; when Lincoln first met him in said episode, Rusty seemed like a mean kid, due to how he laughed at Lincoln's girly bike, but as the series went on, he became one of Lincoln's best friends, while his biker friends, Papa Wheelie and Flat Tire, have rarely appeared since.

According to "Everybody Loves Leni", Lincoln started hanging out with Rusty and Zach, presumably at some point following the events of "Hand-Me-Downer", and then brought them together with his other two friends, Clyde and Liam, when the latter two felt left out. By "Schooled!", the friends are joined by Stella and are the closest of friends.


A good friend of Lincoln, Rusty is a bit awkward and seems to be a coward, given he cried when a pigeon flew in the gymnasium. He considers himself a ladies' man, once hitting on Lincoln's sisters when he came over to work on a project with him and mentions in "Back Out There" that he likes the ladies. He seems to get hungry easily, as shown in the egg baby project where he frequently asked his teacher when lunch was.

Rusty is a good kid at heart who cares about his friends and their happiness. In "Back Out There", he, along with Clyde, Zach and Liam, attempted to cure Lincoln's "post breakup blues" by having a guys night out. While his efforts were misguided, he did go through great lengths to ensure Lincoln would be happy.

He's not afraid of monsters or blood when he watches horror films like in "The Price of Admission", but when this happens in real world he starts getting scared as shown in episodes "Back in Black" and "Tails of Woe".

He has a tendency to confuse the names and personalities of Lincoln's sisters, as seen in "The Whole Picture", where he mistook Lucy for Luna and Luan for Lola.


Rusty Spokes has fair skin and curly orange hair. He wears blue baggy pants, a light green T-shirt with a yellow collar and a black (yellow prior to "Back Out There") ellipse on it, and white shoes. His bicycle helmet is blue with a yellow wing design on the front. He also has buck teeth, and freckles all over his face.
