|“Who would build a lighthouse way out here?”|
“It's not a lighthouse. It's a prison.”
|— Lloyd and Zane in "The Last Voyage"|
The lighthouse is a structure built upon a small island amidst the Endless Sea. Its only known inmate was Dr. Julien, who was imprisoned by Samukai to create vehicles for the Skulkin Army. A Leviathan was chained to the ocean floor near the island to prevent its prisoner's escape.
The prison was eventually discovered by the ninja while en route to the Island of Darkness. Upon their arrival, Zane reunited with his father, Dr. Julien, and they went inside the lighthouse where Julien explained his past and told them of the Leviathan. The ninja worked together to try and escape the Leviathan, but the massive creature tried destroying Destiny's Bounty. Fortunately, Zane freed the beast and it fled the scene, allowing the ninja to escape with Dr. Julien.
Long after Julien's freedom, the ninja found themselves in a conflict with the Sky Pirates, with the sinister Djinn trapping the ninja in the Djinn Blade. When Jay and Nya were the only ninja remaining, they took refuge at the lighthouse, where they met Zane's clone, Echo Zane. With his help, Jay and Nya staged a battle against the Sky Pirates, but they were eventually overwhelmed and Nya was captured. Jay left the island via a portal and formed a rag-tag crew to save the ninja.

Prior to the series
Forcing Dr. Julien to create vehicles for him, Samukai would imprison the inventor on the island, presumably sending him shipments of supplies to work with regularly. He would additionally chain the Leviathan to the island as a guard. Later, in his solitude, Dr. Julien would create the tea robot and Echo Zane as company.
As a result of the Starteeth attack severely damaging the Destiny's Bounty, the ninja were unable to control the ship's course and ended up crashing it on the shore of a lighthouse prison. Deciding to visit the tower, they encountered Dr. Julien, and after a joyful reunion, Julien explained the circumstances of his resurrection and how he had been imprisoned. After evading the gaze of the Leviathan, the ninja and Dr. Julien escaped the lighthouse by repairing the Destiny's Bounty and freeing the Leviathan.
Shadow of Ronin (non-canon)
While on route to Chen's Island, the ninja passed by the lighthouse.
Jay returned to the lighthouse to recruit Echo Zane as part of the Ninja Replacements.
An island prison where Samukai kept Dr. Julien for years, forcing him to work on designs for Skeleton Army vehicles. It is located on a small island not far from Dark Island. The ninja arrived here when Destiny’s Bounty was damaged, rescued Julien, and in return, he repaired their ship. This was Zane’s first opportunity to see his creator in many years, and gave him the opportunity to learn more about his past.
The island is surrounded by sharp jagged rocks, the largest of which covers the majority of the island. A steep staircase is carved out of the rock leading to the summit where the prison is constructed. Sparsely dotting the island is the Red Kelp of the West El Paso Current.
The prison itself is a tall stone tower. Dr. Julien installed a camera eye above the main door which is operated by a controller inside. Several crates filled the first floor and a winding staircase leads to the main floor of the lighthouse.

- Based on Nadakhan's observations, the Red Kelp of the West El Paso Current seems to be exclusive to the waters around the island.
- The names of the two main episodes that feature the lighthouse begin with "The Last": "The Last Voyage" and "The Last Resort."
The images on Lighthouse need to be organized.
