Background: Heavy Iron Studios is an independent American game developer. It was originally formed in 1999 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of THQ, based in Los Angeles, California. While not every one of their games are well-received, they are generally known for making high-quality games based of licenses, especially their SpongeBob SquarePants, Pixar, Evil Dead and Scooby-Doo titles. In May 2009, Heavy Iron was spun off from THQ as part of a cost-cutting move.

1st Logo
Heavy Iron Studios - CLG Wiki

Nickname: "Black Metal"

Logo: It's only the Heavy Iron Studios logo in black zooming out of a stormy background.

FX/SFX: Only zooming out.

Music/Sounds: Thunder-like sounds.

Availability: Seen on Evil Dead: Hail to the King for all platforms.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
Nickname: "Bat Metal"

Logo: We see a field of trees against a green night sky. Suddenly, a flock of bats appear and fly toward the screen. The screen is blacked out by one of the bats and the company logo is revealed light-wipe. The logo is similar in structure to the previous logo, but the text is set in ITC Avant Garde Gothic. The logo disappears soon after.

FX/SFX: The bats flying and the logo appearing.

Music/Sounds: What sounds like thunder, followed by the sound of bats chirping. A long synth chord is heard when the logo appears.

Availability: Was only seen on Scooby Doo: Night of 100 Frights.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

Heavy Iron Studios (2003)
Nicknames: "Heavy Metal Prototype"

Logo: On a background, we see the power plants on the red background inside the circle with the red line and the words "Heavy Iron" and "S T U D I O S" next to it.

Music/Sounds: None

Availability: Extremely rare. This logo was supposed to be used in Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, but it was unused,and instead shows the "Game Developed by Heavy Iron Studios" sprite before the title screen, but it has been discovered in the game's disc files under the fmv folder and the file is named "HILogo.bik" (which is the only movie that does not contain the bkp movie for it).

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo

Heavy Iron Studios
Nickname: "Heavy Metal"

Logo: Over a red background, we zoom slowly away from a power plant, then when we zoom out enough we see three more power plants right beside eachother. Then when we zoom out more further we see that the power plants are in a circle on a black background, along that the words "Heavy Iron Studios", all in capitals. A line made of fire separates the two words from each other. A light blinks on the logo.

  • On the Xbox 360 and Wii versions of SpongeBob's Truth or Square, the logo appears in a bubble during the opening scene of the game. Everything black in the logo is white, and "HEAVY IRON" and "S T U D I O S" are in a different font and stylized as shown.
  • The same stylized logo is also shown in the opening scene of Up, for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.

FX/SFX: The plant fading-out and the light blinks.

Music/Sounds: Hammers stabbing some metal.

Availability: Common. The normal version can be seen on games such asThe SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Game, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille.

Editor's Note: None.

Nickname: "Heavy Metal 2"

Logo: On a black background, we see the logo from before, except that it now has three power plants. A red circle comes up from behind it, with an barrier being drawn around it. The word "Studios" then zooms out into the logo when it finishes animating. The only animation is the smoke until a flash makes the logo completely still and print-looking.

FX/SFX: The animation and the effects.

Music/Sounds: A creepy theme with hammers stabbing the metal. Also, there is a flash sound for the flash.

Availability: Current. Seen on Harley Pasternak's Hollywood Workout, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse and newer games from the company. It was also seen in H1Z1 (Now Z1 Battle Royal), but was only mentioned on their website.
