Fanfic / Five Nights At Lynns

Go To
It'll be a night to remember...

"It was just a simple job on paper for Tucker, get some money, pay his tuition for college, that practically sells itself, all he had to do is just watch over a restaurant called Lynn's Table, and get some sleep while nothing is going on, only to be surprised that to his misfortune, things were starting to put a new meaning to Animatronics... "

— "Description from"

''Five Night's At Lynn's'' is a The Loud House fanfic written collaboratively by EliteSlayer103 and Timothy D, which was published on September 28th, 2019.

"Five Night's At Lynn's" provides examples of:

  • Action Survivor: Tucker certainly fits the mold, an average college student trying to get by and having to deal with Animatronics that are much stronger than he is.
  • Adaptational Badass: And boy does it show! All the Loud siblings and Chris are willing to throw down with their psychopathic Animatronic counterparts if their Brotherly/Sisterly instincts are pushed too hard.
    • Specifically speaking, Lynn Loud Jr is revealed in this fic to be canonically strong and durable as the actual show's humorous moments, namely stalemating and beating her Animatronic Counterpart to prevent her from killing Tucker.
  • Affably Evil: As it shows, some of the Loud Animatronics are amicable and polite while telling Tucker how much he's screwed, namely Animatronic Lisa, Lucy, Lio, Lincoln, Chris and Lori.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: For whatever reason, these Animatronic versions of the siblings and Chris seem to have developed psychopathically murderous tendencies and already killed previous night guards, among burglars and trespassers due to some sort of glitch that infected their systems.

  • Always Identical Twins: In this story, Lincoln is actually a part of another set of twins with a brother named Lio, who was born after Lincoln, the only real visual difference between the two boys is that Lio's hair is neatly combed, with a pink polo shirt with a yellow flower.
  • All According to Plan: No matter what Tucker did to survive the nights were all for naught when it was revealed that Animatronic!Lori was counting on his luck and accumulating injuries to find the time for her Animatronic family to escape and become even more powerful.
  • Assist Character: A non video game example with the animatronic versions of Chris and Lio acting as this for Lynn and Luan respectively. The former sneaking about and stealing the batteries for Tucker’s flashlight to leave him helpless and the latter disabling Tucker’s audio lure so that he has one less way of defending himself against the Monster Clown.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ax-Crazy: All of the Loud Animatronics are this by varying degrees, but Lynn and Luan are perhaps THE most insane of the group by the former being an enthusiastically violent killer, and the latter being a Monster Clown which is explored below.
  • Badass Adorable: Lynn Loud Jr and among lesser examples, the Loud Siblings and their friends count.
  • Badass Normal: Generally all the human characters we seen so far that are involved with dealing with the Animatronics and even managing to get the drop on them.
  • Bait-and-Switch: You thought Animatronic Lincoln was the ringleader? Just wait till you see Animatronic Lori, not to mention, they're planning to make more of themselves...
    • On a lesser note, the story itself started out as a seemingly similar style to Five Nights at Freddy's until later on it only takes the broad idea of the concept and runs away with it as its own unique idea.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Animatronic Lucy fits this to a degree, while she isn't too dangerous, its remembered to always be on alert with her, as Tucker almost found out.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: These Loud Animatronics are similar in personality to their human selves and thus fits this mold, although they act like kids, they are incredibly dangerous to deal with.
  • Big Bad: Animatronic Lincoln, or at least it appeared that way until it was revealed he's actually The Dragon to the real Big Bad, Animatronic Lori.
  • Big Brother Instinct: A villainous version with the animatronic Louds all being eager to exact brutal retribution towards anyone who makes Animatronic Lily cry. Noticeably, they become a lot more ruthless and banter far less whenever Lily is threatened.
  • Blood Knight: Animatronic Lynn is basically this, she enjoys the struggles of her prey as she brutally tortures and murders those that step foot into the restaurant, and for the love of God don't piss her off with surviving longer than she expects.
  • Bright Is Not Good: While these Animatronics look exactly like the Loud Siblings and friends who wear colorful clothing (sans Lucy), this is taken into account for their true nature.
  • The Brute: Animatronic Lynn is generally the case, while she isn't lacking in intelligence, she is much stronger than any other person Tucker has encountered yet ( Other than the human Lynn and possibly Lori.), able to easily dent steel and kill many humans with laughable ease.
  • Battle Couple: The pairing of Chris and Lynn Loud Jr is a prominent example as their animatronic counterparts, who compliment each other in terms of mechanics.
  • Butt-Monkey: Its certainly a wonder how is Tucker is able to keep coming back to Lynn's Table after getting beaten up by the Loud Animatronics.
  • Catchphrase: “Yare yare daze” for both Lio and his animatronic counterpart.
  • Cowardly Lion: Lio Loud fits this trope as generally he doesn't like to get into physical confrontations and would rather bolt than fight, but if the chips are down, he will put his life on the line to stop the Animatronics.
  • Creepy Child: Both Lucys are this trope, but the Animatronic counterpart is much more morbid in her acts, monologuing about killing Tucker or for him to give up and let them inside, crawling down the wall like a spider, preparing to slash out Tucker's tendons, breaking into Tucker's home to intimidate him and brutally murdering Animatronic!Lola's attempted rapist.
    • All the younger Loud Animatronics are this trope as well, acting much like their human counterparts but more hungry for violence and murder, heck Animatronic!Lana keeps declaring her intent to "fix" Tucker like she's giving him a tune-up, Animatronic!Lola's demand for attention and her willing to jump straight to murder if the person observing her looks away for too long.
  • Cute and Psycho: All of the Animatronics fit this trope, some more than others.
  • Determinator: Give Tucker credit where its due, despite being told there's an out by both the Louds and their Animatronic counterparts, he keeps chugging along to help the kids get to the bottom of the problem.
    • For a villainous example, Animatronic Lynn is awfully persistent in her attacks on Tucker, each time getting only more determined and focused on killing him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite being sadistic, psychotic and homicidal machines, the animatronic Louds all love, care for, and support each other just like the real Louds do.
  • Gratuitous Ninja: Lynn still has her uncanny arts of ninjutsu, able to be uncharacteristically stealthy for someone that's usually quite loud in her actions which she used to help tag some of the Animatronics in the restaurant.
  • Nothing Personal: Animatronic Lio says this almost verbatim to Tucker, insisting that he has nothing against the night guard (even going so far as to say he likes him) and doesn’t even want to kill him, but is simply following his sisters’ wishes.
  • Obliviously Evil: Animatronic!Leni doesn’t even want to kill Tucker and even makes friendly conversation with him several times, even giving him beauty tips. However, she still goes along with her siblings wishes to murder him without understanding why that’s an issue.
  • Pungeon Master: As to be expected, both Luan and her animatronic counterpart are this, much to Tucker’s annoyance. To a lesser extent, Lio and his animatronic version are this as well.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Lynn's Red to Chris' Blue, where she's more willing to dive face first into danger, Chris is one to help temper her expectations and think out a way around the problem.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Not only do the animatronics look identical to the Louds, after upgrading, they’re even capable of eating and drinking like actual humans.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Chapter 11 gives Tucker a complete reprieve from the homicidal antics of the animatronics, with the robots being so preoccupied with their plans that not even one of them shows up at the restaurant. The worst Tucker has to deal with is boredom from having nothing to do.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: All the Animatronics fit this trope, they are willing to maim, threaten, or kill whoever they get their hands on to get their way.
  • Waxing Lyrical: Both the narrator and Tucker do this in chapter 11 with the narrator referencing the chorus from “Stan” in his description and Tucker later humming lyrics from “Thank You” by Dido (the song from which aforementioned chorus comes from)
    • To a lesser extent, both versions of Luna tend to pepper their dialogue with song references.

How well does it match the trope?
