As of October 2, Fear has been seen holding the lantern in Fear Revealed. This may mean, The Collective has lost the Lantern, but that is currently unknown. Defending this theory, the research section of the website (specifically the Lantern case) has gone offline.
In 2015, a Legendary Truth investigation hints that Bloody Mary may have had a hand in releasing the Heralds of Fear from the Lantern.
- Originally, the Lantern was called the Jack-o-Lantern.
- The Lantern (in its small actual size) was hidden in the HHN: 20 Years of Fear scarezone. It was settled behind the Caretaker's hearse.
- The Lantern briefly appeared in 3 houses during Halloween Horror Nights 21. It was found in Nightingales: Blood Prey in a bombed bunker as a light source, in The In-Between as a drawing on a wall, and in Saws N' Steam: Into the Machine turned off, among a pile of dead bodies.
- The Lantern appeared as a easter egg in Evil's Roots.
