Closing Logo Group

Background: TBA

1st Logo



Nicknames: "The Gorilla", "Big Ape Gorilla", "The Gorilla of Death", "The Gorilla of Doom", "The Closest You'll Ever Get To a Gorilla Ever Again"

Logo: A close-up of a gorilla is seen, showing from the eyes to the nose. After a moment, the light blue stacked words "BIG APE" and "PRODUCTIONS, INC." appears on the lower-left corner.

FX/SFX: The fading of the words.

Music/Sounds: A very loud growl of a gorilla, followed by grunting.

Availability: Seen on Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace for PC and the PlayStation and The Simpsons Wrestling for PlayStation.

Scare Factor: It can range from medium to nightmare. The fact that it just cuts to the logo, the close-up of the gorilla and that sudden and very loud growl can cause some hearts to jump out of peoples' chests. Low to medium to those who are used to it, and who expected it.

2nd Logo



Nicknames: "The Gorilla II", "Big Ape Gorilla II", "King Kong", "The Big Ape King Kong Logo"

Logo: It starts off with a gorilla opening its eye. It’s show as grainy film footage. The camera eases back to reveal the gorilla is climbing up The Empire State Building in New York. The city has searchlights scrolling. Two 1930s-style airplanes fly by its head and the gorilla swats at them. As it continues climbing the building, the planes fly by again and the grain goes away. The camera then goes past a sign which says “BIG APE PRODUCTIONS INC.”, just like the previous logo, in blue. The gorilla then goes to the top of the building, roars and thumps its chest.

FX/SFX: Nice computer animation and an interesting tribute to King Kong.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic orchestrated fanfare with sounds of the gorilla and the planes.

Availability: Seen on Celebrity Deathmatch for the PC, PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

Scare Factor: High. The gorilla opening it's eye and the dramatic fanfare, combined with the planes and the gorilla (which is reminiscent of, of course, King Kong) may scare anyone who aren't used to it. It may vary for those who can't stand the effects this logo has, but it's harmless, and a huge improvement over the first logo.
