Locked gates appear on the map screen and prevent Shovel Knight from reaching later levels. They divide the Valley into four quadrants. Each Locked Gate is color-coded to the Order of No Quarter stage that needs to be beaten to unlock it. There are nine gates in the game; one for each Order of No Quarter stage with the Iron Whale possessing two.
