|“Why is the Destiny's Bounty even on this puzzle? Super cool pirate ship? Yes. But I can't say it's a top Ninjago tourist attraction. It was definitely a great Ninja headquarters.”|
|— Cole, "Legendary Places"|
The Destiny's Bounty was a large red sailing ship 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 men, who fought against the Sky Pirates before defeating their captain Nadakhan and marooning his crew across the Sixteen 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 damaged vessel into the Black Bounty. 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.
Following the original ship's destruction, Master Wu and Nya designed and built a new and more advanced ship called Destiny's Bounty 2.0, which was first used in the battle at the Corridor of Elders against the Anacondrai warriors and continued to use it until it was destroyed at the hands of the Colossus. However, after the Rise of Ninjago, the Destiny's Bounty 2.0 was rebuilt by the citizens of Ninjago as a thank you to the ninja for saving Ninjago.

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 Destiny's Bounty as the ninja's only means of flight and swift transportation around Ninjago.
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 P. Chumsworth, 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 Train 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 have to leave when Nya informed them there’s 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—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.
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 the Fire Dragon. 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 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 the show's Destiny Bounty is a little bit bigger than Destiny Bounty 2.0.
- 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 Destiny's Bounty 2.0 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.
The images on Destiny's Bounty need to be organized.
