|~ Clyde Mcbride|
Clyde McBride is the major and supporting character in The Loud House. He is the best friend of Lincoln Loud and he has a crush on Lincoln's oldest sister, Lori Loud. He also has same sex parents named Howard and Harold.
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.
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.
- In the episode One of the Boys, his parallel counterpart 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.
