The ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam is the titular mobile suit of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny and was piloted by Shinn Asuka. A straight-built Gunpla version is piloted by Shimon Izuna in Gundam Build Fighters Try.

Mirage Colloid System:

Activated when Wings of Light is used, it spreads Mirage Colloid particles, leaving a trail of after-images that can confuse enemy pilots and also make the Destiny Gundam difficult to capture.

Destiny’s head crest displays the text “X-42S DUE”, where in italian “Due” means two and a reference to Destiny’s series number.

During the battle of Orb, a blue beam is seen destroying a Murasame. As no other mobile suits are known to use blue beams, it is speculated that the attack is from Destiny’s palm beam cannons, and this suggests that they can also serve as ranged weapon. However, this is never confirmed in any official materials.

The Destiny appears in the Extreme Vs. series as a 3000 cost unit. While its main weapons include its beam rifle, beam boomerangs, palm cannons and anti-ship sword, Shinn can fire the Destiny’s Beam Cannon either as a single shot or for a sustained shot. When using the Voiture Lumiere, the Destiny will avoid incoming attacks and can perform a barrel roll during the Voiture Lumiere to shoot its beam rifle in order to stun an opponent.

In Extreme Vs. 2, the single shot from the Destiny’s Beam Cannon was replaced with a support from Rey Za Burrel’s ZGMF-X666S Legend Gundam, and the Destiny was also given the ability to charge straight for the opponent with the anti-ship sword during Voiture Lumiere. For its burst attack, the Destiny will activate its Voiture Lumiere to perform multiple strikes on the opponent with the anti-ship sword before grabbing them with blasting them with its palm cannons.

Heine’s custom what-if Destiny also appears as a powered down variant at a cost of 2500. Aside from reduced damage, Heine’s Destiny can only toss its beam boomerangs in a V-shape unlike Shinn’s being able to toss them both in a V or in a horizontal line.

Additionally, Heine cannot use the Destiny’s beam cannon for a sustained shot, instead flinging its anti-ship sword to stun an opponent for a combo.
