Following the defeat of The Preeminent, the Ninja rose in popularity and began being treated as celebrities. During their down time aboard the Bounty, Zane would often play Jay in mini droid chess and win every single game. Following the discovery that Clouse had managed to escape the Cursed Realm, Zane and the other Ninja headed to Stiix to stop him, taking a brief detour to the hospital for Lil' Nelson's Grant-a-Wish. Upon arriving in Stiix, the ninja were unable to locate Clouse and discovered to their horror that they had been framed for a crime free. Now wanted criminals, Zane and the other Ninja were forced to split up to avoid detection.
After a brief meeting with the other Ninja where they discovered that a Djinn might be behind their framing, Zane and Lloyd headed to Domu to do further research. However upon arriving at the library, Zane was hacked and captured by Ronin, who had been paid to round up the wanted Ninja. Once all six of them had been captured, they were led onto a bus bound for Kryptarium Prison.
While at Kryptarium, Zane was quickly singled out by The Mechanic who saw the Nindroid's spare parts as compensation for being put out of business by the Ninja. Zane and the other Ninja also learned from Captain Soto that this Djinn was none other than Nadakhan, a feared pirate captain whom Soto had trapped himself centuries ago. That night, as part of Lloyd's prison break plan, Zane froze the halls, slowing down the pursuing guards.
Zane helps the Ninja find the Tiger Widow island in Cliff Gordon's house. He then aids them in sailing out to the island aboard the boat. However, a sudden lightning storm forced Zane to retreat below deck, as the electricity was attracted to his metal body. Although Jay tells them not to go down alone, Zane leaves the party and stays below deck, where he is confronted by Nadakhan. The two engage in a game of chess where Zane revealed that he is well aware of the Djinn meeting Jay and assures him that he will not disappear. Believing that he could outsmart Nadakhan, Zane made two out of three wishes for Nadakhan with the first being for his words to not be twisted so Nadakhan could exploit any loopholes, and for any harm done to his body to be multiplied onto Nadakhan tenfold. An amused Nadakhan granted his wishes, while noting Zane must be the smart one among the ninja. Before Zane can make his final wish, Nadakhan deletes P.I.X.A.L. from Zane's memory banks, stating that deleting information did not count as harm. Too shocked and heartbroken to think clearly, Zane wished it all to go away as he couldn't bear to live without P.I.X.A.L., sucking him into the Sword of Souls.
While floating around within the Sword of Souls, Zane would be rescued from it by Jay and the rest of his imprisoned allies, their release resulting in the defeat of several Sky Pirates converging on their position.
While Nya is dying, Zane puts his hand on Kai's shoulder to comfort him. When Jay uses his last wish to undo the events of Skybound, Zane is teleported back to the moment where he and the others were on the rooftops. P.I.X.A.L. is restored. He smiles when Jay and Nya become a couple again as the other while wondering if something prevented Clouse from finding the teapot.
