Leni L. Loud is a main character in The Loud House.

Biography

At 16 years old, Leni is the second-oldest child of the Loud family, and the second-oldest of Lincoln's five older sisters. Unlike Lori, she is very naive and quite ditzy, but she makes up for it in beauty and kindness. According to her siblings, her most annoying habit is saying "like", which is ironic as she doesn't actually say it that often.

Personality

Leni believes that the inside of Lily's crib is a prison.

Despite being the second-oldest of the Loud children, she is the least intelligent. However, she is easy-going and happy-go-lucky. Various examples of her simple-mindedness are expressed throughout the series. In "Linc or Swim", she does not know the rules of the game, "Marco Polo", much to Luan's annoyance. In "Project Loud House", she is shown to be unable to walk and chew bubble gum at the same time. In "Changing the Baby", she gets stuck in Lily's crib, and thinks that it's a prison. When she's being interrogated by Lincoln and Lucy in "Sleuth or Consequences", she thinks they're interviewing her, and states that her favorite color is zebra.

Despite this, she's shown to be skilled at fashion designing, wood carving, lock-picking, and making smoothies, which demonstrates that while she may not be very bright, she is creative, and artistically inclined. She is also the kindest out of the bunch, and gets along well with her siblings.

She suffers from arachnophobia, as seen in "Left in the Dark", and "No Guts, No Glori". This phobia is most prominent in "Along Came a Sister", where Lincoln brings his class's pet spider, Frances home. When Leni first sees Frances, she panics and attempts to kill her with bug spray. Later on it is revealed that Frances is still alive, and an exterminator comes to dispose of her. Leni overcomes her fear, and cuts off the exterminator in order to save Lincoln's reputation - once again - showing that she has a big heart.

Leni has also proved that she can be irresponsible, as shown in the episode "Cover Girls". She agreed to cover for Luna, Luan, Lynn, Lucy, Lola, and Lana, and later passed the task onto Lincoln. However, Leni is shown to be very compassionate, as she was the only one of her siblings to prioritize helping her family get better, as opposed to getting away when the Loud family caught the flu in "One Flu Over the Loud House".

While she does have moments of inconsideration, like her out-of-character smugness in "Sleuth or Consequences", her good nature overshadows these moments.

Nick Description

"Leni Loud loves designing outfits and accessories to go with them. Leni's easily distracted by shiny objects, and often walks into walls while talking, but what Leni lacks in smarts, she makes up for in heart. She's the sweetest Loud around!"

Appearance

Leni has long, pale-blonde hair with side-swept bangs and three pairs of eyelashes. She is almost as tall as Lori. She has a characteristically big chin.

Her main outfit is a seafoam green dress with white frills. With this, she wears red hoop earrings, white sandals topped with light green bows, and a pair of white sunglasses on top of her head.

Her night attire consists of a seafoam green nightgown, that looks very similar to her regular outfit, but sleeveless. She also sleeps with a magenta sleeping mask, but later on it changes to a blue mask with an image of closed eyes over it. She retains her magenta mask and like the blue one, it has the closed eyes image.

Leni's original design depicted her with a light blue dress, snow boots, as opposed to sandals, and a hairstyle that resembled Lori's, but was slightly longer.

In "Hand-Me-Downer", she was seen as a younger girl, but her wardrobe wasn't entirely different. She still wore a seafoam green dress, and sandals with green bows on them. The only differences are that her dress didn't have frilled sleeves, and she didn't have her sunglasses.

Sunglasses

Leni thinks that the lenses of her sunglasses are a solar eclipse.

Leni wears her sunglasses atop her head in every episode she appears in. She only removes them when she goes to bed, showers, or goes swimming.

Her sunglasses are white, with two black circular lenses, and a shine going across both of them.

When she was portraying a cat in the family play in "Suite and Sour", her sunglasses were triangular in shape, instead of circles, which looked like cat ears.

There is an animation goof that has occurred a few times, where her sunglasses are missing in one shot, and then reappear in the next shot.

Alternate Versions and Alter-egos

S1E23A Loni being dumb

Leni as Loni.

In the alternate dimension where Lincoln has brothers instead of sisters, Leni is a boy named Loni. Like Leni, Loni is ditzy and dumb. Unlike Leni, he is thoughtless, and couldn't care less if Lincoln, or his other brothers were hurt.

In the second alternate universe, where it's one girl and ten boys, Loni's shown to be very caring towards Linka, Lincoln's female counterpart--in fact, Loni's the one who makes the offer of him and the rest of the brothers staying with Linka until she falls asleep after they heard her screaming in the middle of the night.

Loni eventually ceases to exist when it is revealed Lincoln's whole adventure was just a dream.

The 11 of Hearts

Leni interpreting The 11 of Hearts.

In the minicomic Deuces Wild!, Leni takes on the identity of the superheroine "The 11 of Hearts". She plays the role of one of Ace Savvy's sidekicks. Her signature weapons are heart ties with which she uses to tie up her foes. In the comic, she is summoned by Savvy alongside the rest of his deck to help him and One-Eyed Jack to defeat the gas monster. After they defeat it, they prepare to fight against a garbage monster.

The 11 of Hearts appears again in "Pulp Friction", along with the rest of the Full House Gang. During her appearance in the episode, she saved Ace Savvy and One Eyed Jack from falling into a shark pit by using her pink bow as a rope.

Leni's Beginnings

Leni's original design.

  • Leni was originally going to be an eight-year-old girl who "didn't know her own strength", before being changed to a stereotypical teenage blonde. Her appearance was also completely different; she was obese, and had brown hair pulled into pigtails.
    • Her original personality is also reminiscent of Lennie Small, who was not only mentally disabled, but also a big, muscular man who didn't know his own strength.

  • Leni has failed her driving test 14 times.
  • Leni is left-handed.
  • Leni's voice actress, Liliana Mumy, starred in the movie Cheaper by the Dozen, which also involves a large family.
  • She occasionally forgets people's names. In "Sound of Silence", she calls Lincoln "Landon", and in "Overnight Success" she calls Clyde both "Claude" and "Clark".
  • In "Space Invader", Leni says that she likes to brush her hair 50 times a day, but she can easily lose track.
  • In the first half of Season 1 Leni wore a magenta sleep mask to bed, but as of "One of the Boys", her sleep mask is blue, with closed eyes on it.

Leni's walk.

  • When Leni is seen walking, she almost always has her eyes closed, a big smile, and holds her hands up. A running gag is that Leni bumps into walls when she's walking, a possible result of her walking with her eyes closed.
  • Although Leni and Luan are very close, Leni believes that Luan's hair scrunchie is a "fashion nightmare".
  • Leni's hair is the lightest shade of blonde of all the blonde sisters.
  • She is one of four Loud sisters to wear earrings (in Leni's case, hoop). The other three are Lori, Luna, and Lola.
  • Leni is the first sister to have her younger self shown, in "Hand-Me-Downer".
  • She and Lori are the only sisters who have visible breasts.
  • Leni, Lori, Lola, and Lily are the only siblings who don't wear socks.
  • Leni and Lola are the most feminine of the Loud sisters.
  • Leni is the first Loud sister to appear on a title card.

  • In "A Tattler's Tale", it is shown that in addition to her fear of spiders, Leni is also afraid of rats.
  • Leni is one of three siblings who caused a blackout. She caused one in "Overnight Success", while the other two are Lincoln in "Left in the Dark", and Luna in "A Tattler's Tale".
  • It is revealed in "Brawl in the Family" that Leni's skin can't tan.
  • In "The Sweet Spot", it is shown that during road trips, the motion of the van puts Leni in a daze.
  • In "L is For Love", it is implied that she likes Chaz.
  • According to episode 20 of the Nick Animation Podcast, Leni's favorite movie is Legally Blonde.[3] This makes sense, given that she, and the movie's title character, Elle Woods, are both fashion-obsessed, ditzy blondes.
    • Another thing that makes Leni and Elle similar is that they're both much smarter than they first appear, as certain episodes show that, despite Leni's generally ditzy, unintelligent behavior, she's much smarter than her siblings realize.

Leni's "life's work".
