Not to be confused with the fifth Loud child.

Lynn Loud, Sr. (or Dad) is the father of Lincoln and his sisters. Lynn Sr. is a supporting character in the first season, and a major character from Season 2-present.


Lynn Sr. is stern, and often calls a halt to his kids' fights, but he loves and cares about them. He also loves his wife, and often acts playfully romantic towards her. He has been shown to have a childlike side at times, even sometimes taking part in his kids' antics, when it's all in good fun. He's also the more sensitive of the two parents, often necessitating his wife, and stepping in whenever he needs to pull himself together.

On a side note, he seems to enjoy jokes and dancing. He is shown to dance on occasions in episodes such as "The Loudest Yard", "Ties That Bind", "Come Sale Away", "House Music", and "Lock 'N' Loud". In addition, it is mentioned in "A Tattler's Tale" that he won a dancing contest, and had a disco ball trophy that Lincoln broke. In addition, in "Sleuth or Consequences" he mentions enjoying karaoke. On occasion, he enjoys Luan's jokes, and tries making his own, which appeal to Luan as well, as shown in "Raw Deal".

He's also shown to be quite a coward, as he screams and faints at the sight, sound, and idea of spiders, Lana's mud wrestling, horror movies, and Halloween.


Lynn Sr. wears a sea green sweater over a light-green checkered collar and cuffs, and brown slacks. He has a long pointy nose, brown eyebrows, and curly brown hair that is thinning on the top.

In "House Music", when he is playing the cowbell, he wears a yellow-striped shirt, and green pants which his underwear was seen. In his youth, he sported a mustache. His hair was also straighter and parted in the middle.
