|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.

Main article: Destiny's Bounty/History
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. Although the fourth version has a ship wheel located inside in the set, the show shows that the ship wheel is outside on a raised bridge and behind it is the control room covered with paper walls.
- While both the original and Legacy versions have white sails in the show, in the sets they are sand brown.
- While in the set for the current version of the Bounty, the flags on the stern are sandy brown and blank, in the show they are white and depict red dragons resembling flags in the post-movie Bounty and Land Bounty.
- While in the show the ship wheel is always shown as a part 4790, 70618 Destiny's Bounty and 71749 Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty are the only sets that use this piece, as all other sets use a a scaled-down part 48723.
- The Destiny's Bounty has appeared in every season since its debut, except for Season 3, where it appears in flashback.
- Wu is the only character to appear in every Destiny's Bounty set, except 71749 Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty.
- The Bounty was destroyed or damaged in almost every season it appeared.
- In Season 1, it was destroyed by the Great Devourer until Lord Garmadon restored it as the Black Bounty.
- In Season 2, Overlord destroyed it with his power of Darkness, until Nya and Wu repaired it in Season 4.
- Bounty was not destroyed in seasons 4, 5, 6 and Day of the Departed.
- In Season 7, the Vermillion destroyed it until the ninja repaired it before Season 8.
- In Season 8, Bounty was destroyed by Colossus until the citizens of Ninjago reapired it in Season 10.
- Bounty was not destroyed in seasons 10, 11 and 12.
- In Season 13, Bounty was severely damaged by Dire Bats until it was repaired by the Winged Guards of Shintaro.
- Bounty was not destroyed in The Island.
- In Season 14, Bounty was severely damaged by Wojira.
