She is the fifth-oldest of Lincoln Loud's ten sisters and is named after their father, Lynn Loud Sr. Lynn Jr. is a very energetic, athletic girl who enjoys playing every sport that exists, and even making a sport out of everything else she does. She tends to start competitions among or pick fights with her siblings, and is also quite superstitious.
Appearances in Christmas specials
As one of the show's main characters, Lynn appears prominently in the show's first Christmas episode, "11 Louds a Leapin'". For much of the episode, Lynn and her younger sister Lucy search all over the house, trying to find where their parents have hidden their presents. When Lincoln tells the sisters about how Mr. Grouse is unable to spend Christmas with his own family, Lynn realizes that she's had her mind on the wrong priorities, and takes part in cheering up their neighbor by giving him a bus card and spending Christmas Eve with him. At the end of the episode, it is shown that Lynn received a new pair of sport shoes for Christmas.
In the online-exclusive Loud House short "12 Days of Christmas", in which the Loud family sings their version of the titular song, Lynn's line is "five goals to score", referring to scoring five goals in hockey.
Lynn's next appearance in a Christmas special was in the fifth-season episode "Season's Cheatings". In this episode, when the Loud family picks names out of a hat in their annual gift-swap, Lynn's name is picked by Leni, who accidentally blurts out that she's Lynn's Secret Santa. Later, when Lincoln is trying to switch out Leni's name-card with Lily's (because Lily picked his name and he was hoping to get a Rip Hardcore backpack, but has now learned Lily will instead be giving a homemade gift), Lynn tackles him in his attempt to do so. At the end of the episode, it is shown that Leni's gift for Lynn is an indoor field goal kit, consisting of a miniature football and goalpost.
Lynn also appears in its partner episode, "A Flipmas Carol", which, being a take on A Christmas Carol, casts her in a Bob Cratchit-esque role. In it, she is working as a delivery girl for Flip's Food & Fuel because she busted a hole in the store's restroom door. To her dismay, Flip informs her that she's going to have to work on Christmas Day. However, after he is shown the error of his ways by four ghosts, Flip comes to the Loud house on Christmas morning and tells Lynn that her debt has now been fully paid.
Lynn and her family also appear for a cameo at the end of The Casagrandes episode "A Very Casagrandes Christmas". In it, the Louds show up at the Casagrandes' to spend Christmas with them because Vanzilla broke down while they were picking up Lori from college.
