Leni L. Loud is a main character in The Loud House.
At 16 years old, Leni is the second-oldest child of the Loud family, and the second-oldest of Lincoln's five older sisters. She is very naive, and quite ditzy, but she makes up for it with beauty and kindness. Leni attends Royal Woods High School with her siblings Lori, Luna, and Luan.
Despite being the second-oldest of the Loud children, Leni is quite ditsy, and is very forgetful, absent minded, perky. 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 being ditsy and absent minded, she's shown to be skilled at fashion designing, wood carving, singing, 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 and sweetest out of the bunch, and gets along well with her siblings.
She suffers from arachnophobia, as seen in "Left in the Dark", "No Guts, No Glori" and "Future Tense". 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 faces 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".
"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!"
Leni has long, pale-blonde hair, with side-swept bangs, and three pairs of eyelashes. She is almost as tall as Lori.
Her main outfit is a seafoam green dress, with white frills, and triangular sleeves. 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.
Leni's swimwear is also seafoam green with white frills, only it is a two-piece garment. The top half has two simple straps, while the bottom half is longer than the top, and has four white buttons. Instead of sunglasses, she wears a seafoam green swimming cap, with a white bow tie. She retains her earrings and sandals, even while in water.
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.
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, rather than circular, 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
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 turns out to be a product of Lincoln's imagination as it is revealed Lincoln's whole adventure was just a dream.
After finding a hotel worker's name tag in "Suite and Sour", Leni immediately likes the look of the tag and decides to put it on, fooling every hotel customer that walked by her, as the name tag says "Fritz". When the customers start to treat Leni like an actual worker, Leni decides to work as one too, giving her customers the keys to their rooms and addressing the customers' complaints. She even tried to kick the Loud family out of their room because of reports from angry customers.
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.
