Rusty Spokes is one of Lincoln's classmates in The Loud House


A good friend of Lincoln, he is a bit awkward and seems to be a coward, given he cried when a pigeon flew in the gymnasium. He considers himself a ladies' man, once hitting on Lincoln's sisters when he came over to work on a project with him and mentions in "Back Out There" that he likes the ladies. He seems to get hungry easily, as shown in the egg baby project where he frequently asked his teacher when lunch was.


Rusty Spokes is one of Lincoln's classmates and they seem to be friends. He is also a member of the local bicycle gang. He speaks with a squeaky, high-pitched voice.

He at first seemed like a mean kid, due to how he laughed at Lincoln's girly bike, but later on he seems like one of the friendlier kids, and is on good terms with Lincoln.



His first appearance was in "Hand-Me-Downer". After seeing Lincoln riding Lynn's bicycle, Rusty invites him and Clyde to join their gang. During a row in the park, Lincoln shows up with the bike. Rusty and Flat Tire are so impressed so they select Lincoln as their new leader instead of Papa Wheelie.

After Lincoln loses Lynn's bike, he uses his pink hand-me-down bike and confesses to the gang that that's his real bike. This causes them to dump him at their leader. Later, Rusty Spokes decides to name Lynn as their new leader, nicknaming her "Lynn-sanity", after looking her winning the BMX competition with the pink bike.

Lincoln Loud: Girl Guru

In "Lincoln Loud: Girl Guru", he is seeking advice about girls from Lincoln. The latter then suggests that Rusty should pose as a knight while asking her out. As a result, Rusty Spokes then has trouble handling the horse he is riding on while asking a girl named Sadie out to the movies. He then crashes after losing control, injuring both himself and Sadie. He's last seen chasing Lincoln and Clyde down along with Coach Pacowski and other boys.

Dance, Dance Resolution

Rusty appears again in "Dance, Dance Resolution", in which he, Liam, and Zach, are having trouble getting dates for the school's Sadie Hawkins dance.

At the dance, Lincoln and Clyde later recruit their assistance by having them handle the former's four dates, while Lincoln tries to hide from Ronnie Anne. He goes with Polly Pain, who enjoys being with him. At the end, they are seen dancing together.

Back in Black

In "Back in Black", he is Lincoln's partner for a school Science project, and it's revealed that he has a younger brother named Rocky.

Making the Grade

In "Making the Grade", he shunned Lincoln along with Zach and Liam for his sister Lisa showing off her phenomenal genius and making the rest of the class feel inferior. But when he found out that Lisa cured the kindergarten strep throat epidemic, he and the others welcomed her and Lincoln to sit with them and mentions that he couldn't get infected because of a date he had on Friday.

The Whole Picture

In "The Whole Picture", he dresses up as Lucy in order to help Lincoln re stage his childhood memories.

Shell Shock

In "Shell Shock", he was getting hungry and wanted lunch so much and felt relieved when lunch break finally came. His partner broke the egg they were caring for because she didn't wanna work with him.

Pulp Friction

He is one of the kids who liked Lincoln and Clyde's comic book entry.


Rusty Spokes has white skin and suffers from acne. He wears blue baggy pants and a light green T-shirt with a yellow collar. His bicycle helmet is blue with a yellow wing design on the front. He has buck teeth and curly red hair.
