Music/Sounds: A menacing high-pitched synth chord following by rising synth blips, and blips that sounded like an alarm when the penguin runs around. When the Nintendo logo shakes, a "Dong!" sound is heard, followed by a loud thunderclap sound when the logo flashes rapidly.

(1993- )
Nintendo - CLG WikiNintendo (2005)

Nickname
: ''The Nintendo Logo''

Logo: Depending on the variant:
  • Mario Kart 64: We start off with a side view of the Nintendo logo. The logo is gold. Suddenly, it starts spinning around, getting faster and faster. As it does this, a trail of pieces of the logo shows up, and the logo remains this way as it fades to white.
  • Goldeneye 007: The Nintendo logo, in silver, zooms in suddenly and spins around at a slow and steady pace.
  • On most Nintendo games: The Nintendo logo is red and is on a black background.
  • Donkey Kong 64: Same as the previous variant, except it suddenly appears. On the Japanese release of the game, the Nintendo logo is silver instead of red.
  • Most other games have the logo still, along with being silent.

FX/SFX: A usual effect or none.

Music/Sounds: A sound from the game or silence. On the Mario Kart 64 variant, the sounds of cars driving by. On the Goldeneye 007 variant, the opening theme plays. On Animal Crossing: Wild World, a child says "Nintendo". The Donkey Kong 64 variant has Donkey Kong saying "Okay".

Availability: Can be seen on most Nintendo games
such as Mario Kart 64.

Scare Factor: Depending on the variant:
  • Mario Kart 64: Low to medium. The revving up of the cars and the logo spinning may make you uneasy.
  • Goldeneye 007: Minimal, as you might not expect it.
  • Animal Crossing: Wild World: None.
  • Donkey Kong 64: Minimal. Donkey Kong saying "Okay" when the logo suddenly appears may startle you.

The logo appears, but there's a bark from a dog. The exact bark changes each time you play the game. It can be one bark, but sometimes it's two or three barks.
This variant doesn't appear on the Nintendogs + Cats games.
