Lightning is very common during Halloween Parties.
Lightning was expected before the Halloween Party 2008 arrived. Gary the Gadget Guy said that a lightning storm would hit the island just in time for Halloween. During the event, lightning flashing from outside the Dojo revealed Ninja Shadows. After the event, the last lightning bolt struck the Dojo, which revealed its exterior. Since then, lightning occurs every Halloween, and clicking on the sky would result in the strike of lightning.
A lightning rod is a metallic object used to protect buildings in the event of lightning strike. They were mentioned in issue #211 of the Club Penguin Times, as a tip by Gary for protecting from the storm, to leave lightning rods at home.
- The biggest lightning is recorded on high places where the clouds are closer.
- During the Halloween Party 2011 and the Halloween Party 2012, if you clicked on the clouds, lightning would not strike except if you were in high areas like the Lighthouse.
- Lightning can be seen in the Stormy Background.
