Heartwarming / The Loud House

Go To
One boy and ten girls? Wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Lola: Lincoln, you bonehead! You gave them the wrong picture!
Lori: Yep! I knew you'd blow this, too.
Lincoln: No, I gave them the right one. The one that shows the real you. The perfect you.
Sisters: (hugs Lincoln) Aww! Thank you, Lincoln!
— "Picture Perfect"

Even a show about a family of 10 girls and 1 brother can warm our heart with a few moments every couple of episodes.

  • Just the relationship between the Loud kids is really sweet—even if they, like pretty much all siblings, do argue a lot and get on each other's nerves, it's obvious that they really do care about each other and have very strong caring and protective instincts towards each other.
  • Out of the nine oldest Loud children, rockstar-Luna seems to spend the most time with baby-Lily—she's usually the one holding Lily when they and the rest of their siblings are on the move and is often seen playing with Lily. It's probably safe to assume that, after the Loud kids' parents, Luna is Lily's primary caregiver.
    • This is highly debatable, as Lily is actually, by numbers, most often seen with Leni, and Lincoln has explicitly mentioned that Lori and Leni are the ones usually assigned the role of babysitter when the parents are away. Which is heartwarming all on it's own, as despite her clumsiness and lack of intelligence, Leni is perfectly capable of seeing to her baby sister's needs.
  • Any time Lana and Lola show that they really do love each other. The major instances, such as the events of "Patching Things Up", are listed below. However, sometimes, it's in episodes or scenes in which they are not the focus, but they can be seen playing together, generally as part of a group shot. For instance, they dance together during the party in "Party Down" and can be seen playing together in a corner at the beginning of "Potty Mouth". In "Lock 'N' Loud", they are playing with modelling clay with Lily. In "Yes Man", they act together to convince their parents to give them some money, so Lana can fix Lola's car and make it more performing.

  • Lynn Sr. returns the favor, telling his children that contrary to their beliefs, they make his life better every day and that they're more important to him than any job, as they are irreplaceable. His boss is so moved by this that he immediately gives Lynn Sr. his job back.

Darcy just gives her a simple response of "That's what friends do for each other", which makes Lisa finally understand the point of friendship.

Lucy, Lola, Lana and Lisa forgive him. They later stop him from revealing to their parents that he didn't do his job as a babysitter responsibly and make up a story to cover for him...

315b — Game Boys

  • In an odd sense, there's how the conflict of the episode kicks off: Clyde is afraid of letting Lincoln borrow his Snap for a day (primarily because of his sisters), but Clyde had already (reluctantly) let Lincoln borrow it.

Although it all proves to be an elaborate prank put on by Luna and her girlfriend Sam to teach the three a lesson about invading her privacy, it's still touching that the siblings went out of their way to protect their sister from landing herself in jail through the criminal acts they believed she was committing.
  • Additionally, Luna holds no grudges against the three of them for their dishonest act, and just wanted to make a point by psyching them out. She is quick to laugh off the entire thing once she comes clean.
  • Heck, just Sam helping Luna out by posing as "Roxy" is touching in and of itself, showing just how strong their trust in each other is.

  • The End Credits Theme. It summarizes the Loud Family's relationships in nutshell, with a rock beat to boot!
  • While the situation with Chris Savino was pretty bad all around, some decided to take it out on the rest of the production staff, despite most of them having nothing to do with it. Many fans came to their defense, feeling regardless of Savino's actions, the rest of the production team were just doing their jobs, and that they shouldn't be dragged through the mud over something that's not their fault.
  • Fridge Heartwarming. In "Sleuth or Consequences", Lucy is insecure about the fact that she likes Princess Pony and Lincoln talks about how she has low self-esteem. However, in the Licensed Game "Clean-o-Clock", she reads the Princess Pony comic in front of her siblings and doesn't seem bothered, meaning her self-esteem might have improved. Also, her sisters don't laugh at her for it.
  • The licensed game "Summer School" awards you for being nice. Some things you win awards for are sending a frog home, cleaning the park, returning Leni's phone, Luan's fake spider, and Lana's darts, feeding a cat, giving dimes to Luan, and giving Mrs. Johnson an apple.
  • From the podcasts:
    • In Leni's episode, she points out stores where she buys presents for Lori and the twins. She also apologises to Lincoln for embarrassing him (by having her friend give him a makeover) and takes him to the fro-yo place and the arcade. She also expresses an interest in adopting a puppy and even though she likely didn't follow through, it's still nice of her.
    • Lori's episode reveals that Lynn Jr. and Luan set Lori up with Bobby because they thought they'd make a nice couple, that on their first date they didn't take their eyes off each other (even if that did make Lori bump into a waiter), and that Lynn and Luan were at the restaurant with Lori and Bobby on their first date to make sure Bobby was good enough for Lori.
    • In Lincoln's episode, he forgives Mr. Grouse for taking his hammock and lets him use it whenever he wants. He also promises to give his sisters the benefit of the doubt if something else gets lost or stolen.
    • In Lana's episode, she feels Machine Empathy towards Vanzilla and worries that she's a hypocrite for telling her parents, Lori, and Leni to take better care of it when she accidentally breaks it (and Lori and Lynn Sr. tell her not to feel bad at that point). She also buys her parents, Lori, and Leni ice cream and gives them all double scoops.
    • In Lisa's episode, her family cheers her up by apologising for getting in the way and ask her to name a mystery organism which is actually her, that they describe as "awesome", "single-handedly supporting an entire ecosystem", and "super intelligent". They also hug, even if it does knock over her potassium sulphate.
