Clyde McBride is a main character of The Loud House and a major, supporting, or minor character in the upcoming film. In the series, he is the only main character that isn’t a part of The Loud Family. He is the best friend of Lincoln Loud and he initially had a crush on Lincoln's oldest sister, Lori Loud. He also has same sex parents named Howard and Harold McBride.
He is voiced by Caleel Harris in the show's premiere, and later by Andre Robinson due to the former's voice changing as he hit puberty.
Clyde acts as a voice of reason for Lincoln, often providing advice towards any problems he gets into (even if they do not always work). Like Lincoln, he shares an interest in reading Ace Savvy comic books.
While not as much as Lincoln, Clyde is prone to getting badly hurt or suffering other mishaps as a result of helping out Lincoln and/or his sisters, but Clyde takes it in stride due to how fiercely loyal he is to his friends.
He tends to be very cautious and at times paranoid, largely the result of his overprotective upbringing, and has a noticeable fear of getting in trouble with authority figures (i.e. In one episode, when Lincoln, his group of friends, and his sister Lisa are sent to the principal's office for food- fighting, Clyde can be heard tearfully begging Principal Huggins not to put it on his permanent record).
Clyde and his dads regularly see a therapist named Dr. Lopez, whom Clyde often makes reference to.
Clyde has an intense, obsessive crush on Lincoln's oldest sister, Lori, but whenever sees her or whenever she attempts to talk to him, he spazzes out, causing him to have a nosebleed, behave like a robot, and finally fall unconscious.
He has a one-sided rivalry with Lori's boyfriend Bobby. Clyde noticeably dislikes Bobby due to jealousy over Lori, but Bobby seems to like Clyde pretty well, and may even be oblivious of Clyde's dislike of him.
- His parallel in One of the Boys is unnamed, hence her nickname, "Girl Clyde". Her stature is similar to his, but she wears a lime green/yellow outfit and her ears are pierced. She and Loki (the Loud House) seem to have a crush. Her debut appearance was in a photograph in said episode.
- His second father, Howard, may actually be a foster parent due to his race being different.
- It has been confirmed, however, that neither Howard nor Harold are Clyde's biological parents. In reality, Clyde was adopted by them, so his biological parents have never been seen in the show.
