- “Many great heroes have gone mad trying to get through this maze of bounce pods. If you're careful and you don't go too crazy, you might just make it out in time.”
Pod Gauntlet is a Heroic Challenge in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure that is unlocked by Chop Chop. It uses a map similar in design to Cadaverous Crypt and requires the Skylander to escape the maze in under four minutes and thirty seconds.
The Skylander must traverse through a maze of Bounce Pods and spear traps. Keys will need to be found repeatedly to open gates in some areas so that the Skylander may proceed. The last gate must be opened by defeating all of the enemies in the last section of the maze; when this is opened, a cutscene plays in which the Skylander walks into a vortex that carries him or her upwards, thus completing the Challenge.
- During the final cutscene, any remaining Chompies that appear near the vortex (i.e. out of the barrels near the end of the platform) may also be sucked into the vortex.
