Lana L. Loud is one of the main characters from the Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House. She is the fourth-youngest of Lincoln Loud's ten sisters, being just two minutes older than her twin, Lola. Lana is a complete polar opposite to Lola, being a very happy tomboy who loves to play, especially in mud. Contrary to her love of anything unhygienic and filthy, Lana gets along quite well with her siblings and is also a skilled handyworker. Lana is also friendly to all animals, such as her pets, and is known to do whatever it takes to protect them, even when it goes against common sense.
Appearances in Christmas specials
As one of the show's main characters, Lana appears prominently in the show's first Christmas episode, "11 Louds a Leapin'". Her subplot in the special has her laying traps all around the house with the intention of catching one of Santa Claus' reindeer to keep as a pet. As a running gag throughout the episode, the other characters accidentally activate her traps, leading Lana to express glee at knowing her traps work. When Lincoln tells her and the other sisters that he found out that Mr. Grouse is unable to spend Christmas with his own family, Lana is surprised to learn that Mr. Grouse also has a pretty big family, and she puts aside her desire to catch a reindeer so she and her family can spread Christmas cheer to him. On Christmas morning, Lana is shown to have received a dungeon playset resembling Castle Grayskull from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. At the very end of the special, she then thinks that she finally caught a reindeer, not realizing that Luan actually got caught in her reindeer net.
In the online-exclusive Loud House short "12 Days of Christmas", in which the Loud family sings their version of the titular song, Lana sings her line as "eight yummy mud pies," as it is shown that she has covered the kitchen in mud.
Lana is much less prominent in the show's next Christmas episodes, "Season's Cheatings" and "A Flipmas Carol". In the former episode, she takes part in her family's annual gift-swap, but it is never mentioned which sister's name she pulled from the hat. Oddly, when Lynn Sr. gives all the kids a Christmas cauliflower cupcake, Lana, who normally loves anything yucky, doesn't seem to want to eat hers. At the end of the episode, we see that she received a box full of mud, to her delight. In the latter episode, when the way-past-its-expiration-date turkey that Flip sold to the Louds explodes in their kitchen, Lana goes to help her father fight it off.
Lana and her family also had a cameo in The Casagrandes episode "A Very Casagrandes Christmas". At the very end of the episode, the Louds show up at the Casagrandes' apartment to visit them for Christmas after Vanzilla breaks down.
