* TheDogBitesBack: Twice. Bligh severely mistreats the crew of the ''Bounty'' and sure enough, just as Willie predicted, they revolt against him. After he and Willie are cast off in a boat, Willie revolts against him, taking the boat and leaving Bligh on a turtle.

* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Bligh threatens to make the turtle he's marooned on into soup if it doesn't swim faster.



* DirtyCoward: Bligh seems to be one, as he mistreats his crew at every opportunity but is clearly nervous and at a loss for words when the crew mutinies against him.

* IWarnedYou: Bligh is told by Willie after the crew mutinies that he warned Bligh it would happen. Bligh shrugs it off.
* {{Jerkass}}: Bligh is a big one, as he is a BadBoss and thus performs a KickTheDog at every opportunity, and even after the crew mutinies, he's still a jerk to Willie, and even to the turtle he's left sitting on when Willie revolts against him.
* KickTheDog: Bligh does this to his crew by throwing away their mail from home, informing them the mail had cookies in it, rather bluntly informing Milhouse his father had died while baking said cookies, and whacking members of his crew with his cutlass when their singing of a sea shanty displeases him.
* LaserGuidedKarma: For being a colossal jerk and a BadBoss to the Bounty's crew, Captain Bligh is left adrift in a boat when the crew mutiny against him, and is left on a turtle when Willie mutinies against him. He presumably drowns when the turtle goes underwater when he dares it to.



* OffWithHisHead: Offscreen example. When the Bounty's crew wanted a suggestion box, Bligh gave them one. It was made of the head of the one who suggested it, Martin Prince.
* OhCrap: Bligh, when he hears guns click behind him and realizes the crew are mutinying.



* TooDumbToLive: Upon taking over the Bounty, Bart throws away the helm.
