The Intensity Gate in Chapter 1.

An Intensity Gate is a type of door in Kid Icarus: Uprising that can only be opened if the game is set to a certain difficulty level or higher. Intensity Gates are exclusive to Land Battle segments. Each Intensity Gate leads to a different location, usually an isolated room with a group of enemies and a few treasure chests inside. Most levels have at least one to two Intensity Gates, some of which must be encountered off the intended path or very far into the chapter. Visiting all Intensity Gates at least once is required to earn a golden laurel crown for the chapter.

Gate Locations

In the fountain courtyard, look to your right to find this gate as shown in the picture above. Because this is the first Gate you are able to find, Palutena will fill you in on what they are. Inside there is an Underworld Crawler.

The first gate is easy to spot. Near the starting point, after rounding a few corners, it can be seen on top of a small staircase. It will take you down a pathway, but don't drop off the end back to the starting point, turn right to find a Treasure Chest. Turn around and go back the way you came, which will also reveal a Souflee.

The second gate is located after the Head of the Hewdraw. In the immediate next area, look left about 120-150 degrees to find this gate. Inside is a treasure chest and a few enemies, so look out.

When you get to a small area with a Jump Pad in the center, go to the door behind the pad and take the elevator up. When you get out of the elevator, the intensity gate can be found behind it.

In the area with the trampolines, when you get to the area after the area the Mik is bouncing in, on the right there is a Jump Pad, there will be another, then you're at the intensity gate. On the inside there are 3 Treasure Chests, the one on the left contains a weapon (may or may not contain Power by chance), the one on the right contains a food item and hearts, the middle one is a Mimicutie.
Note: You can only open one Treasure Chest, unless you're really lucky and they stay so you can open a second one.

Gate Level: 8

In the area with the trampolines, you can also sometimes go on platforms under the ones with the trampolines. When you find the second Specknose, go under the trampoline platform to find this gate. As an easter egg, the room is textured to look like a shop from the 8-bit Kid Icarus game. It may be intensity 8 as the easter egg is "8" bits or just because of whatever other reason.

This gate is easy to find, but the hard part about getting there is enduring the air battle at the highest intensity (9.0, "Nothing Harder!"). This gate will take you to a room with puddles with an electric current. You will be notified about the floor by Palutena. After defeating a Shelbo, Handoras, and a Zurret, your reward is a treasure box, food,Lightning of Judgment item, and a Drink of the Gods. You will be led back to a room filled with enemies.
