Larry Larkin is a high schooler who does a speed metal guitar solo of a song called "Carnage" during the Winter Talent Show. He appears in Rodrick Rules.

Due to the fact that the talent show combines acts from three schools spanning kindergarten to 12th grade, Larry performs after a kindergartner who sang a song to her teddy bear. Halfway through his guitar solo, Frank Heffley makes a joke about Larry to the man sitting next to him who, unbeknownst to him, is actually Larry's father.


  • Though Larry isn't mentioned by name ever again, characters that appear similar to him make cameos in three later books.
    • In Dog Days, when Greg and Rowley do a prank with a dollar bill underneath the boardwalk, a teenager who looks like Larry is pranked by them.
    • In Double Down, someone who looks like Larry works at a cryogenics facility Greg discusses.
    • In The Getaway, a person who appears almost identical to Larry holds up the Heffley family at a security checkpoint because of how long it takes for him to take off all of his piercings.
