    Media of origin: The Loud House


    Lincoln Loud is the main protagonist of the Nickelodeon series The Loud House, its live-action counterpart The Really Loud House, and its two film adaptions, and a supporting character in its spin-off The Casagrandes. He is an 11-year-old (later 12-year-old as of the season 6 premiere "Present Danger") boy who lives in a house with his ten sisters and two parents. With the help of his friends, he finds new ways to survive in such a large family every day.

    While he was a mainly well-written character in seasons 1-3, unfortunately he got flanderized and derailed in season 4, became a bit more likable in season 5, and depending on your view, fully redeemed himself in season 6.

    "Stincoln!" Qualities

    1. He has now received big flanderization. He went from a kindhearted child who cares for his friends and family, to a bigger and more selfish jerk than he already was. While he has been jerky sometimes in the classic era, it wasn't his defining trait. But in these seasons, this takes it up to eleven, almost as much as to how jerky some of his sisters were. Sound familiar?
    2. His plans for the most part aren't as impressive or fun as they were in the earlier seasons. They're mainly now more jerkish, stupid, and gullible.
    3. Like SpongeBob SquarePants from the series of the same name in season 6 and 7, he has been reduced to a full on huge clumsy butt-monkey, and whilst he had torture moments in the first three seasons, in the later he has become a full on punching bag to everyone around him, especially Chandler, turning his fine clumsy character into, well, a horribly written butt-monkey.
    4. His clumsiness has also been taken to a higher level:
      • In "A Grave Mistake", Lincoln serves chicken nuggets for funeral food leftovers, which is considered to be one of the stupidest things to ever be done at a funeral.
      • In "House Flip", he and most of his sisters acted like insecure idiots throughout the whole episode. He also thought of hiding Flip in the attic to avoid letting his parents know.
    5. He has jumped quicker to conclusions:
      • In "Stall Monitor", he worries that his then-teacher (Mrs. Johnson) at the time has bad things to say about him, so he tries to delay his parent-teacher conference, but it turns out she had no bad things about Lincoln, meaning that he overreacted over nothing and his actions got him a week of detention and also a week of being grounded from his parents when this could've been avoided if he hadn't jumped the gun. In addition, there is no foreshadowing or build-up of what Mrs. Johnson is going to say to Lincoln's parents,
      • In "Family Bonding", he thinks his new neighbors are evil spies just because he saw them moving stuff around their house late at night, and somehow ended up being right about them in the end, which was really nonsensical and absurd.
      • In "Don't Escar-Go" (the first episode in season 6 in terms of airing order), he alongside with his friends, try and sabotage Clyde's dinner in order not to go to France to do cooking classes. How selfish of them. In addition, he and his friends get no comeuppance or punishment for what they done, thus making them karma houdinis.
      • In "Time Trap!", he and the rest of his siblings break their parents' wedding vase that was a gift, and at Rita and Lynn Sr.'s wedding, they act stupid and they don't get rid of the vase, where they then wreck the wedding by telling the people there what to do, and not focusing on their plan instead. In addition, as a result of this, he gets captured by Mr. Gurdle and Mrs. Gurlde respectively, where he fades away (which happens to all of the Loud siblings in this episode), all because of a broken vase, of which Lynn points that out. In the end, Lisa fixes everything before the kids disappear forever and Lincoln comes back.
      • In "Crashed Course" (the season 6A finale in terms of airing order), he and the rest of the siblings go to Fairway University to sabotage Lori's college life. Sound awfully familiar? In addition, he and his siblings make Lori fail one of her college tests, and get no consequences at the end, making them karma houdinis. Lori does forgive them, however, similar to "[[:wikia:theloudhouse:Cheaper by the Dozen" and "Don't You Fore-get About Me".
    6. There are a lot of episodes where he is at his worst:
      • In "Kings of the Con" (the episode that started his flanderization), he and Clyde planned on staging a crime for them to save, which is not heroic and very villainous likely at all for a superhero themed episode and commit an act of selfishness by catnapping the Kitty to get the role, which is considered animal cruelty.
      • In the episode "Grub Snub", he and his friends make such a big deal of Leni and her friends hanging out at Gus' Games and Grub and then he and his friends try to get Leni to leave Gus' Games and Grub. In fact, during the final round of their challenge, all of them start fighting and destroying all the arcade games which cause everyone else to run away from Gus' Games and Grub and they even injure the owner of the arcade, and somehow they are allowed back in the arcade when they are supposed to be banned from the arcade since they've done much worse in the arcade and they even injured the poor owner. You think he would have learned his lesson from season 1's "Space Invader", right? Not helping by the fact that Gus getting hurt would later be brought back in "Runaway McBride" (coincidentally, both episodes are season 5 episodes, where "Runaway McBride premiered ten months after "Grub Snub") as if Katie Mattila did not learn her lesson from the fans.
      • The episode "All the Rage" has him and his friends taking advantage of Clyde's anger issues by figuring out what ticks him off to win dodgeball from the 8th grade bullies at the middle school. Why on Earth would Lincoln take advantage of his best friend Clyde who's been there for him?
      • In the infamous 2021 live-action movie A Loud House Christmas, its 2021 holiday rerun special A Loud House Holiday Party, and its 2022 holiday rerun special A Loud House Christmas: Plussed Up Edition, as well as the rerun special A Loud House Christmas Holiday Party, he is at his very worst as he, alongside Clyde, sabotages his sisters and parents' plans to have the perfect Christmas ever and the rest of the Louds' plans of going to Miami and the Royal Woods' Christmas tree light ceremony. He was also played by Wolfgang Schaffer, a terrible, annoying, and bland actor. He did, thankfully improve his acting in The Really Loud House.
        • There are some better, funny, and solid actors that should have played him. The best and most notable offenders include Jack Dylan Grazer, Tom Holland, Zach Callison, Andrew Passoa, and even his animation actors.
        • In the series that follows The Loud House Movie, A Loud House Christmas, and A Loud House Christmas: Holiday Party, he redeemed himself (see below).
      • His infamous quote from "The Loud Cloud", "Technology makes our lives better!", which can be false for many.
    7. The episode "The Taunting Hour" very surprisingly proves he cannot take criticism, as he tells the rest of the family to just "ignore critics", though this technically contracts earlier episodes as they showed that he had thick skin and could accept criticism.
    8. His friendships are not written well at times, for example, the episode "All the Rage" has him and his friends taking advantage of Clyde's anger issues by figuring out what ticks him off to win dodgeball from the 8th grade bullies at the middle school. Why on earth would Lincoln take advantage his best friend who's been there for him?
    9. Despite being the main character, in the fourth season, he rarely receives any focus at all, only getting fifteen episodes with those being the following:
    10. While it is nice to see him getting more focus on the show's fifth season onward, however, he has been getting so many episodes (especially in season 5) to the point where his parents, sisters, and other supporting characters have not been getting episodes focused on them unlike in previous seasons. Most of the episodes that directly focus on Lincoln in season 5 are about him and his friends or hanging out and doing something separately with Clyde, while many of the episodes in season 6 are about Lincoln and his friends. In fact, this is also a similar case with Clyde, Liam, Rusty, Zach, and to a lesser extent, Lisa, Lynn, Luan, and Lola. Additionally, depending on your opinion, he has been getting way too much episodes in The Really Loud House. Lincoln episodes are:
    11. Much like all of the characters who have appeared since seasons 4, while his design still looks the same, it has gotten headachingly too thin, thanks to the animation software changing from Toon Boom Harmony to Adobe Flash. While it's not a bad thing to change his design a bit, it can make his design look uncanny in a few scenes.

    "Man with the Plan!" Qualities

    1. He was better in seasons 1-3, as he wasn't as much as a jerk in those seasons and in addition, his personality improved a bit in season 5, as he isn't that jerky there and, depending on your view, fully went back to his original personality in season 6. He also redeemed himself in The Really Loud House.
    2. His voice is still mostly good, nice and incredible, thanks to his voice actors (except the live-action counterpart in the Christmas movie but he did thankfully improve his acting in The Really Loud House) doing an awesome job (especially Tex Hammond and Asher Bishop, with the most notable one being the latter).
    3. Despite his jerkiness, he still loves his family friends, including most of the people he knows and meets such as Flip, Mr. Grouse, and Scoots. In addition, he oftentimes has his original personality.
      • To be fair, his selfishness is admittedly justified since he is very young and has to deal with his annoying sisters.
    4. He still has his fair share of good and is still well-written in a sizable amount of episodes such as:
      • In the season 4 premiere "Friended! with the Casagrandes", his video chat with Ronnie Anne Santiago was nice and exciting to watch.
    5. In the following seasons, his relationship with his sisters is still now positive, especially with Lori, Leni, and Luna who now really love him, (for example in "Season's Cheatings", "Lori Days", etc).
    6. The Loud House wouldn't be the same without him, since he is the main protagonist of the show and franchise and is the focus on many episodes.
    7. His design is still awesome despite being too headachingly thin.
    8. He still has a some impressive and fun plans, leading to a huge amount of funny moments in the series.

    Trivia

    • As of season 5, he now attends Royal Woods Middle School and has special talents of his magic shows and the Action News, and would eventually turn 12 years old in the season 6 premiere "Present Danger".
      • In that same episode, according to Gus, he also shares his same birthday on the day as the Fox Quintupplets' birthday.
    • He has more focus in seasons 5-present and The Loud House Movie.
    • He is similar to SpongeBob SquarePants from the series of the same name, who are funny, clumsy, annoying, mischievous, geniuses, creating plans, nerdy, have buck teeth and freckles.
    • Some people have believed that Lincoln is unlucky, although he isn't unlucky because he's just a butt-monkey which the writers made a copy from SpongeBob SquarePants and Gumball Watterson from The Amazing World of Gumball. They were all clumsy characters. It has been mistaken for an unlucky character because of the episode "No Such Luck" in which he is not bad luck in the series.
