|Destiny's Bounty||Destiny's Bounty (The LEGO Ninjago Movie)|
The Destiny's Bounty is a large red airship that became the ninja's headquarters after the Hypnobrai destroyed the Monastery of Spinjitzu. It was once the vessel of the feared Captain Soto and his Pirates, who fought against the Sky Pirates before defeating their captain Nadakhan and marooning his crew across realms. The Bounty ruled the seas for several years, before crashing into a rocky cliff and killing its crew.
When the ninja found the ship in the Sea of Sand, they used it as their base of operations and quickly renovated it so that it could fly. During their ordeal with the Serpentine, the ship was a valuable weapon, but it would soon be splintered to pieces by the Great Devourer.
After the Devourer's death, Lord Garmadon used the Golden Weapons to transform the vessel's remains into the Black Bounty for himself and the Serpentine. Garmadon's son, Lloyd, would later take back the ship and the ninja would restore it to its old appearance. When The Overlord and the Stone Army posed a new threat to Ninjago, the ninja used the Bounty to travel to the Island of Darkness. When the Overlord was fighting Lloyd there, Dr. Julien flew the ship in the path of a Dark Matter missile from the Garmatron, damaging the ship beyond repair. After their adversaries left for Ninjago City, the ninja used the Golden Mech and the Ultra Dragon to make their way there as well.
Some time after the Golden Master's defeat, Wu and Nya redesigned and rebuilt the ship. The ship was used to fight Chen's followers at the Corridor of Elders and later when the ninja set off to find an ancient tomb and claim the Realm Crystal.
Shortly after, when Nadakhan fought the ninja, the Bounty was seized by the police and was destroyed in Djinjago's collapse, though this was undone by Jay's final wish. On the Day of the Departed, Wu and the ninja used the Bounty to access the old monastery, and later the Temple of Airjitzu, which became their new base. During the battle with the Time Twins and the Vermillion, the Bounty was shot down and crashed in the desert beneath the temple.
After Wu was lost to time, the Bounty was repaired once more, and it was used to fight the Sons of Garmadon. During the battle with the Colossus, the Bounty was caught and crushed to pieces. The original ninja and Wu used Traveler's Tea to escape, with the ship's cabin being sent to the Realm of Oni and Dragons along with them. The Dragon Hunters went on to use parts of the vessel to make their own vehicles.
After the Sons of Garmadon's fall and in the process of repairing the city, the citizens of Ninjago City rebuilt the Bounty from blueprints that Rufus McCallister somehow obtained.

The Tall Tale of Monkey Wretch (non-canon)
Alongside the Misfortune's Keep, the Destiny's Bounty was created on the shores of an island's greatest mechanic, Monk. After Monk was transformed into Monkey Wretch, he promptly finished construction of the two ships and set sail on the Misfortune's Keep, leaving the Destiny's Bounty behind.
Some time afterward, the ship would eventually fall into the possession of Captain Soto and his crew of pirates. Under Soto's command, it became one of the greatest pirate ships to have sailed the Endless Sea, and the only one to rival its sister, Misfortune's Keep.
The Destiny's Bounty would eventually be attacked by its sister creation, Misfortune's Keep, though ultimately proved superior after its crew defeated the Misfortune's Keep's captain, Nadakhan and his band of pirates.
Pirates vs. Ninja (flashback)
Later on, its crew used the vessel to set sail in search of the Island of Darkness. Unfortunately for them, No-Eyed Pete crashed the Destiny's Bounty into a rocky cliff, where it promptly sank, killing its crew and staying for countless years.
The ninja used their Spinjitzu to clean the long-disused interior of the ship, and Jay began working on restoring its functionality. By the time the Fangpyre tribe attempted to attack the Destiny's Bounty, Jay's modifications (with some help from Ed) had made it both operational and flight-capable. Coincidentally, the ninjas' dragons had left earlier that day, leaving the Destiny's Bounty as the ninja's only means of flight and swift transportation around Ninjago.
The Destiny's Bounty was set down in the Endless Sea and the ninja spent the majority of the day training on the main deck. After receiving a distress call from Darkley's Boarding School for Bad Boys, the ship became airborne again as Nya piloted it to the school. There, the ninja used the Bounty's anchor to descend into the school. After retrieving Lloyd, the Bounty was flown to the top of a mountain where it landed for the night.
In the Bounty, Lloyd pranked the ninja and blamed each other. When Nya called them to the bridge, they revealed the location of the Venomari and Constrictai tombs.
After failing to stop Pythor from releasing the Serpentine, they went back to the Bounty and told Wu and Nya about the mysterious Samurai they saw. The moment was interrupted when the alarm went off, alerting them about the Serpentine gathering.
The ninja were on board the Destiny's Bounty when the Mailman delivered their new uniforms, which was immediately followed by an alert that the Serpentine were attacking Mega Monster Amusement Park. The airship's course was changed to the park and the ninja jumped from the ship and used their Spinjitzu vehicles to land safely.
Later, the ninja all reconvened on the flying boat to discuss their unsuccessful attempts in capturing the mysterious Samurai. They were interrupted by Wu who questioned the whereabouts of Lloyd and the ninja soon left in search of him.
That night, they returned having faced the Samurai in the slither pit arena. While they were getting ready for bed, Kai explained how the Samurai had returned the Golden Weapons to him.
In the Bounty, Nya told them they could reverse the effects of a Fangpyre's venom if they increase their heart rate. The ninja then left the Bounty to prevent the Serpentine from finding another Fangblade.
On the Bounty, the ninja discussed how they're going to find the Fangblade. When Cole told them they can get one in the Ninjago Talent Show they flew the Bounty to Lou's house.
After Lloyd was captured by Pythor, the ninja found themselves sharing the ship with Lord Garmadon, who had been recruited by Master Wu to help rescue Lloyd. They used the Destiny's Bounty to fly to the Fire Temple, where the third Fangblade was said to be hidden. When Pythor's Constrictai minions destabilized the volcano, the heroes fled in the Destiny's Bounty, although they were forced to leave Kai and Lloyd behind.
While the ninja, Nya, and Master Wu were infiltrating the Serpentine's underground fortress to retrieve three of the four Fangblades, Lord Garmadon began downloading data from the Destiny's Bounty's database. When Lloyd caught his father in the act, he forced him to leave the ship before flying it to his friends' aid. After a surprise intervention from Garmadon and the Skulkin army, the ninja escaped the Serpentine's fortress with all four Fangblades, but Pythor managed to sneak aboard the Destiny's Bounty during the confusion.
The Destiny's Bounty soon flew to Torchfire Mountain, where the ninja hoped to destroy the Fangblades once and for all. Before they could do so, Pythor sabotaged the ship's engines, causing the ninja and Master Wu to fall off (luckily, Nya saved them with her mech). Lloyd was left behind to man the ship while the others pursued Pythor, but he eventually joined the chase by piloting the ship itself. He arrived to find his allies—minus Master Wu—on the remains of the Serpentine Express and gave them a lift to the Lost City of Ouroboros by hooking the train with the ship's anchor.
When Pythor successfully revived the Great Devourer, the ninja fled in the Destiny's Bounty. They were forced to throw many of their possessions overboard to lighten the ship, allowing the Devourer to grow larger by consuming the lost ballast. Despite Nya's piloting skills and the cover of Crashcourse Canyon, the Destiny's Bounty was knocked out of the air by the Great Devourer's tail, forcing the ninja to evacuate. Taking refuge in a small cave nearby, they could only watch as the monstrous snake bit their home in two.
After escaping Ninjago City with the Golden Weapons, Lord Garmadon found the Serpentine outside Crashcourse Canyon and convinced them to join him. As a display of his newfound power, the four-armed villain used the power of the Golden Weapons to repair the wrecked Destiny's Bounty, transforming it into the Black Bounty. This act impressed the Serpentine (save the Generals) into joining Lord Garmadon, and the united villains took the Black Bounty as their base.
The Black Bounty was used to chase the Ultra Dragon while Lord Garmadon tried to blast it with the Mega Weapon. Later, when Garmadon wished for a more competent crew to pilot his ship, the Mega Weapon revived the original owners of the Black Bounty: Captain Soto and his pirate crew. They took over the ship and terrorized Ninjago City for a time, but were eventually defeated and taken into custody by the ninja. Following this, Garmadon and the Serpentine reclaimed the Black Bounty and fled.
When Lord Garmadon discovered the ninja participating in the annual Ninjaball Run, he and the Serpentine began pursuing them in the Black Bounty. In Crashcourse Canyon, the villains tried to blast the Ultra Sonic Raider with a cannon, only for Lloyd to bump into them with the Ultra Dragon, throwing off their aim. Following this failure, Garmadon decided to enter the race and stop the ninja from winning the prize money, thereby dooming Dareth's dojo.
Due to its size and flight capability, the Black Bounty remained unmolested as the race entered the Glacier Barrens. Although Garmadon lost most of his Serpentine soldiers in a failed attempt to prevent the ninja from refueling on the fly, the resulting pileup allowed the Black Bounty to pull ahead. When the ninja recovered and regained the lead, Lord Garmadon used the Mega Weapon to create a chasm in the ninja's path, allowing the Black Bounty to leave them in the dust.
Unfortunately, even this failed to stop the ninja, who used the Ultra Sonic Raider's new flight modifications to overcome the obstacle and catch up to the Black Bounty yet again. The two vehicles were neck-and-neck as they crossed the finish line, but the deciding factor turned out to be a piece of Ed and Edna's jalopy, attached to the front of the Raider after the pileup in the Glacier Barrens. In his rage over being defeated, Garmadon left the Black Bounty to protest the decision, allowing Lloyd to reclaim the ship for his allies. With the Ultra Dragon perched on the Black Bounty and the police closing in, Lord Garmadon was forced to flee aboard a Serpentine Bus, leaving his ship in the ninja's possession.
The Black Bounty was later restored into the Destiny's Bounty by the ninja.
After Lloyd reclaimed the Black Bounty, the ninja resumed using the ship as their home and training center, having restored it to its old appearance.
The ninja trained Lloyd in the Bounty, but Zane's Falcon came back, showing the Serpentine training at the City of Ouroboros. They fly to the City to stop them.
During the ninja's mission, Wu stands on the Bounty observing the city for any signs of Lord Garmadon winning.
In the Bounty, the ninja woke up and realized they have to prepare for sunrise exercises. However, they had to leave when Nya informed them there was trouble at the museum.
When the Stone Army was unleashed by the Serpentine, the Destiny's Bounty was used to evacuate the citizens of Ninjago City. While waiting for Master Wu and Misako, the Stone Army began attacking the engines—out of desperation, the ninja were forced to leave without their mentor and his friend. Luckily, the ship still managed to save Wu and Misako when they jumped out of a window to escape the Stone Army with the latter's scrolls of prophecy.
Following this event, the ninja resolved to seek out the Island of Darkness to stop the force behind the Stone Army. However, the Destiny's Bounty was unable to fly due to a damaged booster, forcing the heroes to use it as it had originally been intended—for sailing. Some time into their journey, a storm and an attack by Starteeth damaged the ship further, causing it to run aground on a small island.
While there, the ninja met Zane's supposedly-deceased father, Dr. Julien, who offered to help them escape the island by repairing the Destiny's Bounty. With its engines repaired and a zeppelin-like balloon attached to its mast, the ship managed to take off, only for the Leviathan to grab it with its tentacles. Zane realized that the beast was itself a prisoner of the island, and freeing it from its chains allowed the Destiny's Bounty to escape and continue its journey.
When the ninja arrived at the Island of Darkness, the Destiny's Bounty was left on the shore, as it was too large to explore the island without being spotted. Master Wu, Nya, Dr. Julien, and Misako remained with the ship as the ninja sought the Temple of Light, where they later witnessed the awakening of Lloyd's powers.
The Destiny's Bounty was left on the shore when the ninja began pursuing the Garmatron, but Dr. Julien, soon tired, returned to the ship. He later flew it to the other side of the island to aid his friends against the Overlord, blocking a Dark Matter shot from the Garmatron's main cannon with the ship itself. Between the force of the blast and the corruptive properties of Dark Matter, the Destiny's Bounty was heavily damaged and Dr. Julien barely escaped before the ship crashed on the beach.
While trying to brainstorm ideas to return to Ninjago, the ninja never mentioned the Destiny's Bounty, implying that it was beyond repairable. Its remains were presumably left on the Island of Darkness when the group found alternate means of crossing the ocean and returning to Ninjago City.
Nya and Wu officially began construction on the vessel at the Samurai X Cave. At one point, Misako arrived with news that the ninja had gone missing. Nya departed in the D.B. Express, leaving Wu to take over the reconstruction.
While the Elemental Masters chased after Chen's noodle trucks, Wu ordered Nya to ready the Bounty if the worst-case scenario comes to pass.
The Destiny's Bounty was finally completed and was used on the Anacondrai warriors to stop them from taking over Ninjago.
The ninja used the Bounty to escape from Morro that was after of the staff of the First Spinjitzu Master but Morro shut down the Bounty, crashing in the Forest of Tranquility. It was later used to return to Steep Wisdom.
After the ninja reached Cloud Kingdom, Nya landed the Bounty on the side of the mountain and locked their recent prisoner Ghoultar in a Deepstone prison aboard the ship. After the ninja returned in pursuit of Morro, Ronin flew the Bounty into the action while Nya manned the guns and Wu used the anchor to bring the ninja onboard. Once they secured the Sword of Sanctuary, the ninja flew the Bounty back to Steep Wisdom.
When chasing Ronin, the ninja boarded the Bounty but found out it was a trap.
When Master Wu, Misako, and Nya awaited the ninja's return on the Bounty, they were attacked by Soul Archer and Bansha, who also had a boat, but Nya made a wall of water and protected them from the ghosts' attacks.
While on the Bounty, Wu trained Cole how to turn invisible with his ghost powers, Nya takes her anger out on sparring bots, and Zane and Jay plays a game of chess. Lloyd calls them to the bridge so Wu can inform them that Clouse bought a train ticket for Stiix.
Later, Misako arrived to Stiix with the Bounty to save the ninja from being captured. However, the Bounty itself was captured with Misako still in it.
Zane and Kai attempted to recover the Bounty from a junkyard but were chased out by a guard and his dog.
With his home realm incidentally destroyed due to the Cursed Realm's collapse, Nadakhan used the Djinn Blade to excavate large portions of Ninjago's landmass and elevate them in the sky, in an effort to rebuild Djinjago. One of the first, if not the first chunk of land that Nadakhan levitated was a junkyard which housed the Bounty after it was confiscated by the police.
The Sky Pirates used the Misfortune's Keep to help rebuild Djinjago in the skies of Ninjago. At one point, Nadakhan briefly points out the piece of land containing the Bounty, which greatly excites Clancee, seeing the ninja's (as well as their old rival's vessel) is now in their hands.
With Nadakhan's Djinn power temporarily drained, chunks of Ninjago that had risen to the sky had begun to collapse onto what remained of Ninjago itself. It is possible that the chunk containing the Bounty, if the Bounty was still intact (and not ravaged by the Sky Pirates), had collapsed onto Ninjago to be destroyed.
On the Day of the Departed, Wu flew the Bounty to the ruins of the Monastery of Spinjitzu to honor his father. After Morro warned him of Yang's plan, the two used the Bounty to return to Ninjago City where they met up with the other ninja. They then flew the Bounty to the Temple of Airjitzu, though due to extreme winds, they were unable to get close. When the rift closed, it sent a shockwave causing the Bounty to crash next to the temple.
When the ninja raced back to the Bounty, time skipped by a minute, causing them to suddenly appear on the Bounty. They flew to the Monastery of Spinjitzu to see Acronix.
Nya suggested they use the Bounty to fly over the Vermillion Army, but they started hurtling boulders at it.
Nya and Kai arrived at the Bounty to fix the scanners. However, they were unable to fix them. They abandoned it to join the ninja at the museum.
Prior to Sons of Garmadon
After Wu lost in time, the ninja probably returned to Bounty and repaired it, making some major design changes.
Lloyd and Harumi escape the Sons of Garmadon aboard the Destiny's Bounty, which Lloyd had to kick start to get running before going to pick up the other ninja.
The ninja decide to stay on the Destiny's Bounty since the Temple of Airjitzu is too out in the open.
Nya prepares a bike for Zane on the Bounty while Harumi tries to make herself useful.
After grabbing an incapacitated Zane, Lloyd makes the decision to go to Dead Man's Squall, to hide from the Sons of Garmadon since they're after the Baby. As they discuss about the Wu's blanket that has the map to Primeval's Eye, a mechanical spider that Mr. E had placed inside of Zane shorts out the power and Samurai X, who is then possessed by the Quiet One. Samurai X takes out the thrusters, making the Destiny's Bounty crash land in Primeval's Eye.
The ninja attempt to repair the Destiny's Bounty, and as they do so, they discover that the baby is actually Wu. They were then able to get it online, but discover that Harumi is the Quiet One. The Sons of Garmadon soon hold them captive on the ship.
The Sons of Garmadon use the Destiny's Bounty to head over to the Oni Temple and wait for Harumi to return with the Mask of Hatred. Seeing her successful and a crab monster attacking them, Ultra Violet convinces Harumi it would be the best time to take the Bounty, which she does so. Lloyd tried to stop them, but ends up captured as they fly off, leaving the ninja and Wu behind.
The ninja were able to recover the Bounty following the Sons of Garmadon's arrest. It was clear that Lloyd wants the ninja to go to Kryptarium Prison to confront Garmadon, but the others object and they reluctantly agree. Later, Lloyd disables the navigation system and organizes a meeting down below, but it turned out to be a ruse as he locks them in a room and goes to the prison himself. After they get out, thanks to Cole, they try to contact Lloyd, but he destroyed his console while ignoring their pleas. Once they manage to reenable the navigation system, they see that Harumi has hacked all the cameras in the prison so the whole world views Lloyd and Garmadon's battle.
When Lloyd escaped Garmadon with Baby Wu, Harumi pursued him, until the ninja arrived with the Bounty, trying to keep it from hitting skyscrapers. As Harumi caught up, Lloyd flung Wu aboard, and the Bounty was force away, leaving Lloyd with Harumi. However, the ship was grabbed by the Colossus. The Bounty was ultimately destroyed by Garmadon's Colossus. Half of it, the entire rear, were teleported to the Realm of Oni and Dragons with Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane, and Toddler Wu.
The ninja, now trapped in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, did their best to salvage the parts, Jay using one as gaming console. However, when the ninja were captured by Dragon Hunters, the Bounty was hauled away as well.
When explaining to Iron Baron about where he found the ninja, Heavy Metal said they had "fortifications," referring to the ruins of the Destiny's Bounty. The ninja later see the remains at Dead's End, where they say it belonged to them, to no avail.
When Cole, P.I.X.A.L., and Zane arrived at the harbor, they watched as Cyrus unveils the rebuilt ship. They soon realized that the controls of the Bounty were wired wrong and that the forward lever went backwards.
Afterwards, they brought the ship back to the monastery, where they find Faith was hurt. She mentioned that darkness swept over her home realm and that she barely escaped. Wu points out it might be the Oni's doing and the ninja head to the Bounty to prepare.
The ninja drove the Bounty to the city to save some of its citizens. They then drove it to Kryptarium after Lloyd said Garmadon might be able to defeat the Oni.
Once the ninja were airborne again, the ninja discussed if they could trust Garmadon. Meanwhile, he turned the engines off, and the Bounty starts plummeting toward the ground. The Ninja hanged on until Zane got to the emission switch on time. He then asked Lloyd to make sure Garmadon doesn't cause any more trouble; he followed him in the cabinet and discussed the photos.
Zane then asked that everyone meet up at the bridge, where Garmadon proceeds to tell the ninja about how the Oni were able to enter Ninjago. They used the Realm Crystal and he would be able to go inside the dark cloud to destroy it due to being an Oni, but he would need a weapon. Lloyd then argues that they can't just let him have a weapon then let him walk away unsupervised. Since Lloyd is part Oni, he claimed would also survive the darkness and decided to go with him.
When they arrived at Borg Tower, the ninja handed Garmadon a sword, but he started attacking them to activate his powers. He jumped off, and Lloyd followed. After watching Lloyd on his head cam, they heard signals coming from NGTV and decided to help the people trapped there. They flew off, while P.I.X.A.L. decided to stay behind in case the two needed assistance.
The ninja found the source of the distress signal at the NGTV building. Jay and Cole went out to help the people, but once they were about to leave, Nya accidentally turned the thrusters the wrong way. This caused Cole's rope ladder to snap as the ninja watched him fall. Kai tried to turn the ship around, but Zane convinced him otherwise. Instead, they went to save P.I.X.A.L., Lloyd, and Garmadon as the Mech ran out of fuel.
The ninja returned to the monastery via the Bounty.
The ninja dock the Bounty in the middle of the road when they are traveling to the Ninjago City Police Station, leaving a large crack due to the anchor. Later, they docked it at Kryptarium.
The ninja use the Bounty to travel to Dyer Island.
The ninja and Wu use the Bounty to travel to the Kingdom of Shintaro. Along the way, they are attacked by the Dire Bats which break off the sails. However, the Winged Guards of Shintaro arrive just in time and lift the ship themselves. They then transport it to the Kingdom of Shintaro.
The Bounty flies into the city before making a stop near the Shintaro Palace.
Not long after Vania was made queen, the Winged Guards of Shintaro recover the sails and reattach them to the Bounty before the ninja and Wu leave the kingdom. Wu then chose to let the wind guide them to their next destination.
P.I.X.A.L. and Wu try to evade Kalmaar and Wojira, but Wojira strikes the Bounty with Fury of the Storm, causing the sail to fall off. When Kalmaar checked for any people on board, he saw that it was a trick and the Bounty was empty.
The main function of the ship is the ability to hover and fly with the help of two retractable engines located on the sides of the stern. The flight function is also supported by modular air-catching sails. Additional features include two retractable anchors and a cannon.
The Destiny's Bounty is a large, old-fashioned ship made primarily of wood. Its prow is adorned with a large red dragon head, resembling a simplified version of Flame. A porthole on the port (left) side of the bow accommodates a large anchor that can be raised and lowered on a thick chain. The Destiny's Bounty has a single mast in the middle of its main deck, which is topped by a row of long, thin sails. When fully unfolded, the sails form a wide fan-like formation. On the very back of the ship, two small banners are present.
The ship also features two large, ornate devices on its stern. Their original purpose is unknown, but the ninja would eventually modify them into engines that increased the ship's speed. The engines could also reconfigure into boosters that made Destiny's Bounty capable of flight.
The interior of the Destiny's Bounty features a bedroom with beds for all four ninja and a bathroom that supports a toilet and sink. Nya has her own room as well, filled with a bed, a dresser, and a nightstand. Its bridge is equipped with a periscope, a radar that searches for Serpentine activity, and a wheel to steer the Bounty. Near the top of the Bounty is the dining room, with a dining table that also has a built-in stove in the middle for cooking. On the bottom floor, there is a training room equipped with obstacles similar to those in the Monastery of Spinjitzu. The ship also has a small exercise room equipped with several barbells and adjustable weights and a television room with some chairs and a video game console.
After being repaired by Dr. Julien, the Destiny's Bounty could replace its sails with a large, blimp-like balloon, enabling it to fly with more control than before. It was later destroyed on the Island of Darkness.
The second Destiny's Bounty bears resemblance to the original Bounty. It has a dragon figurehead, sails, and thrusters. Additionally, the interior contains living quarters.
After the Colossus destroyed the Bounty, the ship was rebuilt using the original blueprints. However, due to an error, the thruster lever was wired backwards and had to be relabeled.
Final Flight of the Destiny's Bounty
Set sail with Kai, Zane and Jay on their ninja ship for an epic battle on the seas against Ghost Ninja Karenn. Go on the attack by jumping on a superfast jet ski or sitting on the back of a dragon swooping down from the sky. Capture this dangerous villain and dock at the small island to throw him in prison!
- The Hageman Brothers' original idea for the ninja's mobile home base was a flying windmill, but this idea was scrapped because it would not sell well with children.
- The original LEGO set version of the Destiny's Bounty lacks the TV version's cabins.
- The Chinese symbols on the flags at the back of the ship mean "dragon god."
- A miniature model of the ship was part of the ninja exhibit at the Ninjago Museum of History.
- Paradoxically, the 2012 set is smaller than the 2015 set, but in the show the Bounty's original deign is a little bit bigger than the second design.
- Destiny's Bounty is also used as a base for the Secret Ninja Force in the 2017 movie, The LEGO Ninjago Movie. The movie version is kept and used from Season 8 to Season 12.
- The Destiny's Bounty has two spinoffs: the Destiny's Shadow, a boat given to Lloyd by Misako, and the Destiny's Wing, which was built by the Dragon Hunters out of the remains of the Bounty in the Realm of Oni and Dragons.
- It is probable that before the ninja moved to Bounty, someone else lived in it, because there is a sink and lamps that should not be in an old pirate ship. There were also black sails with a pirate symbol on the original ship.
- The second design was called Destiny's Bounty 2.0 in Dragon Dodge!, a Ninjago comic that was featured in Issue 4 of the 2015 LEGO Club Magazine.
- The design of the Destiny's Bounty in Season 8 to Season 12 is inspired by its counterpart from The LEGO Ninjago Movie. In Season 13, the Bounty has an updated design based on its Legacy version that looks more similar to the original Destiny's Bounty. Neither of these design changes are explained in the show but Tommy Andreasen said the reason for this change is that "the on-screen Bounty looks like the one which is currently available to obtain and play with". This may indicate that, like the ninja's design changes for Season 8, there is no real explanation for this within the world of the show.
- However, since Bounty was last seen damaged in Season 7, the ninja probably returned to it and fixed it, making the changes before Season 8.
- As seen in a concept art, Zane's bed isn't in the cabin. This may be caused by the fact that as a Nindroid he doesn't need sleep.
- There are some differences between the Bounty in the sets and in the show.
- The Bounty from 70618 Destiny's Bounty is most similar to its show counterpart, although it was originally designed for the movie. It is the only one with a full-fledged lower deck with a cabin and also has a bridge, which can be reached by a ladder. Although each version of the Bounty had a bridge on the elevated platform in the show, no other set does.
- While the first two versions of the Bounty had a ship wheel located in the cabin on the bridge, the third version had the entire bridge exposed only with the roof and the ship wheel was outside.
