Lighthouse (Bowser's Fury)
Lighthouses are tall towers topped with cat ears that appear in the Bowser's Fury campaign of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. For each of the twelve major islands across Lake Lapcat, there is one lighthouse, colored according to the region denoted by the Giga Bells. All lighthouses are initially corrupted by the black goop seen throughout Lake Lapcat and covering Fury Bowser. While corrupted, their tops are covered in goop, and they emit a purple aura.
The first mission of many islands is titled "Make the Lighthouse Shine", and involves collecting a Cat Shine typically found at the end of an obstacle course. Regardless of the mission's title, collecting the first Cat Shine on any island with a lighthouse will cause it to fill the lowest of the five indicators stacked on the body of the lighthouse. The power of the Cat Shine then causes the lighthouse to activate, removing the goop and turning on the oscillating light at its top. Collecting another Cat Shine in the area will cause another indicator to be filled relative to the position of the Cat Shine in the heads-up display, with the rightmost one filling the top indicator.
If more than one Cat Shine is collected in an area without leaving, the activated lighthouse will simply emit a stronger light. However, if Mario leaves the boundaries of the island without collecting all five Cat Shines, the lighthouse will be corrupted again when he returns.
By removing the goop from a lighthouse, a small compartment will open on its front that reveals a Clear Pipe, which Mario can enter to take him to the top with a small observation platform. The first several times he does this, text will appear in the form of messages from the lighthouse, usually offering gameplay tips or hints. Lighthouses do not have unique messages, as Mario can see multiple messages from the same lighthouse if he leaves and returns to its island, but they appear in a set order. Additionally, a yellow glowing spot is present on the tops of all activated lighthouses; if Mario Ground Pounds or claw dives at it, it will reveal a random power-up.
If all five Cat Shines of an island are collected, a Spring Pole appears on top of the lighthouse, with a golden sparkling flag containing Mario's emblem. This flag remains on the lighthouse permanently, and it does not become corrupted again. The lighthouse also no longer has a glowing spot on its top.
When Fury Bowser is active, collecting a Cat Shine to increase the power of the nearby lighthouse will cause him to shield his eyes and retreat to the Fury Sun, ending his rampage prematurely. If a Cat Shine not associated with any lighthouse is collected, its light will still achieve the same effect.
