THQ/Logo Variations

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by THQ.

Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius: Jimmy Neutron vs. Jimmy Negatron (2003): The logo is on a space background and Jimmy flies in his rocket. The announcer and SFX for the logo are still heard. Strangely, the shield appears to be bigger than the text.

SpongeBob licenses (2003-2011): The sequence starts on the bottom of a seabed. Then the camera pans up, where the logo is formed from a group of glowing bubbles. During this, glowing blue meduses/jellyfish float upwards in the background. The logo then fades to its normal appearance after a few seconds.

Alter Echo (2003): The logo appears on a complicated red background and "echoes" of itself.

Tak and the Power of Juju (2003): The logo is against a moving space background. Seen only on the GBA version of the game.

Polar Express (2004): The logo is set upon a blue-white gradient background, and it is also snowing. Seen on the GBA version.

MX Unleashed (2004): A motorcycle drives off a ramp. We can see some billboards with the THQ logo on it. The screen cuts to a shot where the motorcycle preforms a fly trick, with a THQ logo in the background on a post. The motorcycle lands and keeps driving, carrying and tracking mud in the process. The mud splatters onto the screen and forms the THQ logo, which gradually gains its color, removing the mud. Everything in the background then turns black.

Banjo-Pilot (2005): The logo appears inside a flag.

Scooby-Doo! Unmasked (2005): A flashlight shines on a black background. It is revealed to be from white silhouettes of Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, who walk to the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment logo. They shine the light at the logo, which makes it clearer. Then they walk to the THQ logo, and shine that logo with their light. All of a sudden, the light turns off, and Shaggy bangs on it to try to turn it on. It just reveals the A2M logo, which in turn forms into ghosts that make Shaggy and Scooby-Doo run away. Only seen on the PS2 version.

Ratatouille (2007): The logo appears in the opening sequence, during the scene where boards fall onto the restaurant floor. Each board contains the respective logos of the companies involved and Remy runs away from them. This only appears on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions as the PS2, PSP, PC, Xbox, Wii, GCN, GBA, and NDS versions have the regular logos.

Saints Row 2 (2008): The logo is entirely in gold with lush effects; the letters smash into the shield. Then an ornament appears around it and two cars pop up above.

WALL-E (2008): The logo is made of blue and red glowing lines. Seen on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, and PSP versions.

SpongeBob's Truth or Square (2009): The logo appears inside a bubble. Seen on the Wii and Xbox 360 versions.

Up (2009): On the PC, PSP, and PS2 versions, the logo is white, and is superimposed in the water near the house.

On the Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 versions, it is white again and superimposed on the balloons. The NDS version has a still version of the logo.

Metro 2033 (2010): The logo is a metal plate (with two stars on red circles attached) put on a dirty metal background. A nuclear flare turns it into black dust, which get blown away.

You Don't Know Jack (2011): There are interns speaking over the logo. It changes each time whenever you turn the game on.

Saints Row: The Third (2011): The logo appears on a black car bumper.

Red Faction: Armageddon (2011): The "Q" is blue instead of red and the "TH" is black instead of gray. The logo moves to the screen from the left and an offscreen power ray destroys it after a few seconds. Also seen on the trailer.

De Blob 2 (2011): The 2000 logo is on a white noise background. Only on the trailer.

Darksiders II (2012): The logo with a purple "Q" slowly dissolves in from the left and becomes grungy. The background is also black, and the "TH" is white instead of gray.
