1st Logo (January 18, 2008-December 16, 2011)
Logo: This is like the TV logo, except the grass is higher. In a box containing fog and some grass, which is situated against a black BG, the camera zooms through the grass field. Suddenly, a silhouette of a robot sneaks across off to the right, and to the left, and the robot, which is now redone in CGI and revealed to have a shaded red color and a curved rectangular shaped head, appears in front of us with a body covered by a grass. Then the robot turns into a 2-D drawing when the body appears, and "BAD ROBOT" in the same font as the TV logo, fades in below the box.
Later Version: Starting with Morning Glory, the sky is more realistic with the brownish tint and the robot is rendered smoother.
Music/Sounds Variants: On Star Trek, Super 8, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the opening theme plays over it.
Availability: The normal, early version, is seen on Cloverfield (Debut).
Scare Factor: Minimal. The appearance of the robot may put off a few.
2nd Logo (May 17, 2013-present)
Logo: Same as the first logo except the box is zoomed in until the robot appears and the robot's eyes still continue to blink after the logo turns into a 2D drawing.
FX/SFX: Same as the first logo, but the robot's eyes still blink after the logo turns 2D.
Music/Sounds: The opening theme.
Music/Sounds Variant: On Infinitely Polar Bear and at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it has sounds, complete with the "Bad Robot" v/o.
Availability: Current. Made its first appearance on Star Trek: Into Darkness (as well as its next installment Star Trek: Beyond). It is also seen on 10 Cloverfield Lane and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
Scare Factor: Same as the first logo.
