Shoots larger and more powerful magical bolts.
~ BTD5 Description
More powerful magic shots move faster and can pop more Bloons.
~ BTD6 description

Intense Magic is the first upgrade on the first path for the Monkey Apprentice. As it says in the description, this upgrade will let the Monkey Apprentice pop 7 bloons and be able to pop frozen bloons. In BTD5, the orbs flash in purple, blue and yellow.

In BTD6, this upgrade is the first upgrade on Path 3. It gives +5 pierce to each bolt, giving a total of 8 pierce for each normal bolt attack (7 to 12 for Arcane Mastery, and 11 to 16 for Archmage). In addition, projectile speed for all bolt attacks are increased. Currently, Intense Magic does not affect any fire-based attack except Wall of Fire and Dragon's Breath (Fireballs and Summon Phoenix are both excluded). For Wall of Fire, it grants +5 pierce, while Dragon's Breath flames are granted +2 pierce.
