Some time after the Battle of Stiix, Clouse helped the Sky Pirates return to Ninjago. As they began to mine The Dark Island for Dark Matter, Monkey Wretch began designing vehicles which would be powered by the substance. Monkey Wretch would later surrender the vehicles after the Ninja attacked the Sky Pirate's stronghold, and Zane used to Tumbler to help free the fishermen captured by the Sky Pirates. Zane and Monkey Wretch then used the Tumbler to travel to the Temple of Light.
On the Day of the Departed, Zane drove the Tumbler through the desert along with his fellow Ninja, who were driving the Ultra Stealth Raider and the Rock Roader. Upon arriving at the Ninjago Museum of History, Zane left the vehicle outside the museum.
He later drove the Tumbler to Birchwood Forest to commemorate his father in honor of the holiday. While there, the Titanium Ninja faced off against a resurrected Cryptor and three Nindroids. The encounter prompted him to use the Ninja Tumbler to travel back to the museum, where he reunited with the other Ninja. After Wu and Morro told them of the situation, Zane and the Ninja set off to Yang's Temple on the Bounty, leaving the Tumbler at the museum.
