Sacred Fire Productions is a Japanese company founded in 1996 by future Pokémon creator Satoshi Tajiri, but it would not use a logo until 1998.

1st Logo (1998-2003)

Nicknames: "Before Ho-Oh", "Rainbow Fire", "Space Sacred Fire", "Starry Background"

Logo: We see the gold-colored Japanese text "せいなるほのおプロダクション", which translated as "Sacred Fire Productions", with a black outline on a starry background. A copyright info is seen below it.

FX/SFX: Stars animating.

Music/Sounds: A four-note synthesized piece that borders to a high-pitch.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some TV shows had the end theme of the show over the logo instead.
  • In Heart of Stone, the music is in warp-speed.

Availability: Rare. Can be seen on Tokobon-licensed TV shows such as BAD DESIRE~ and 4Ever. Also appeared in the pilot episode of Let's Go, Mario!.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2003-2017)

Nicknames: "Ho-Oh (not some sort of an old man laugh)", "Ho-Oh Used Sacred Fire!", "Pokémon: Master Quest Has Something To Do!"

Logo: We see the footage of Ho-Oh using the Sacred Fire from the Pokémon: Master Quest episode, "Pop Goes The Sneasel". After the footage, we see a Ho-Oh Shrine from the same episode with the same gold-colored Japanese text from the previous logo fading in front of it.

Variants:

  • In Ganbare! Batten Robomaru, the logo is colored silver instead of the gold.
  • In 2016, a remastered version of the logo is used and Ho-Oh now uses the realistic flame instead of its traditional one.
  • In the Kyumaster episode "Tamagon Appeared!", instead of the actual Pokémon footage it uses the stock footage from that episode where Shinji Natsume uses the Sacred Fire Attack to blow up Tamagon with it. The logo is already formed at the beginning.
  • A still image (skipping Ho-Oh) appeared at the end of Sonic X after the TMS Enterment logo.

FX/SFX: An animated footage of Ho-Oh and a logo fading in. The live-action footage of Shinji and Tamagon in the "Tamagon Appeared!" variant.

Music/Sounds: A rock remix of the first logo's music.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some TV shows had the end theme of the show over the logo instead.
  • In Magnaman, the music is in warp-speed.
  • The Let's Go, Mario! episode "Luigi! The Man in Green!" has the music from the previous logo used instead of the rock remix one.
  • In 2016, Ho-Oh's cry is added when it used Sacred Fire.
  • In the Kyumaster episode "Tamagon Appeared!", the there is a arranged rock remix with Shinji Natsume shouting "SACRED FIRE ATTACK GO!" in Japanese and explosion sounds when Tamagon blows up.

Availability: Can be seen on many Japanese TV shows at the time of the day such as Let's Go, Mario! and Looking Out.

Editor's Note: This logo is best known for its recent airplay in Fuji TV. The scenes with Tamagon blowing up in the "Tamagon Appeared!" variant may unnerve some people, although most of them finds them awesome and funny at the same time. But it's nothing compared to the next logo.

3rd Logo (2008)

Warning Warning: Due to extremely gory content, videos and pictures of this logo are NOT ALLOWED here!

Nicknames:"Where's the heck is Ho-Oh!?", "Osodashi Kamen From Jankenman Is Dead", "Osodashi's Torn-Up Face and Body", "Dead Character of Doom", "Bloody Character Corpse of Doom", "WHY, SACRED FIRE!?", "And You Thought Timpson Films Was Bad"

Logo: In the black background, we see the Osodashi Kamen from Jankenman (1991) laying dead on the ground in a pool of his own blood. His face and body are extremely torn off and mutilated and has blood on both of them. The same Japanese text from the previous logo, this time in a blood red color and an aura surrounding it, fades in front of him.

Trivia: Ho-Oh won't appear in this logo. This is also the only logo not to air on television due to gore.

FX/SFX: None except for the logo fading in.

Music/Sounds: A lower pitched and distorted/glitched version of a musical piece "Moog Statement 14", by Andy Clarke, that is found in other logos like the Worldvision, Cobra Media, Crown Movie Classics and Media West logos.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some films had the Japanese guy singing bizarre in the background. The song is transcribe as "Satsujin...", which means "murdered" in Japanese. The guy's voice is provided by Kazuki Yao, who also voiced the Osodashi.

Availability: Can be only seen in the beginning of many 2008 Japanese horror and pornographic films, which only released in DVD, at the time.

Editor's Note: This logo along with the eerie music is no doubt to scare many people, especially the Japanese fans of Jankenman. The fact that the Osodashi Kamen is the villain of Jankenman won't help. The variant with Kazuki Yao singing ominously makes this logo even scarier than before.

4th Logo (2017-)

Nicknames: "Ho-Oh II", "Ho-Oh Used Sacred Fire! II", "Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You Has Something To Do!", "Ho-Oh Remastered",

Logo: This is the remastered version of the second logo. At first, we see a footage of Ho-Oh using the Sacred Fire from the 2017 animated film, Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You. After the footage, we see Mt. Tensei from the same film as the same gold-colored Japanese text from the first and second logo fading in in front of it.

Variants:

  • In the Let's Go, Mario! episode "The Missing Warp Pipe", the whole logo is mirrored and the text is colored green instead of the gold color.
  • On many English dubs of the shows and the Western cartoons Sacred Fire distributed, the text in the logo is now colored orange and is read "Sacred Fire Productions" in English instead of the Japanese text. This marks the first time this logo is shown in North America.
  • In the 2026 English dub of the Anpanman episode "Bacteriaman and Spark", the logo is shown with a special, aqua-colored text that says "Happy 30th Birthday, Sacred Fire!", which appears underneath it.

Trivia:

  • Strangely, this logo appeared at the end of the US GNC airings of the 1986 adult anime short, Heavy Load, in October 22, 2020 (the same day The Crown Tundra Expansion Pass for Pokémon Sword and Shield is released) due to an error. This was fixed in 2021.
  • An eerie version of this logo is reported to be exist at the end of one GNC airing of the OK KO! Let's Be Heroes episode "We've Got Fleas", with the music from the 3rd logo is being used instead of the actual music and the whole logo is distorted due to an error. This does not happen in the Japanese version of this logo as it uses the actual music and the image won't distort there.

FX/SFX: Same as the second logo, but the flame is now in CGI.

Music/Sounds: An awesome Eurobeat remix of the first logo's music along with Ho-Oh's cry when it uses Sacred Fire.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some TV shows had the end theme of the show over the logo instead.
  • In Digimon Go!, music from the second logo is used due to the reverse plastering
  • In the English Doraemon episode "Memory Bread/Lost-And-Found Fishing Pond", Doraemon's voice can be heard saying "Have a Gadget!" instead of Ho-Oh's cry.
  • In The Simpsons (the first American cartoon to have this logo) episode "The Mansion Family", right after Ho-Oh's cry Homer Simpson's (from The Simpsons) voice is heard saying "Shut up, net-face!".

Availability: Current. This logo is amazingly seen airing on many TV shows produced by the company such as Let's Go, Mario!, Digimon Go! and The Simpsons.

Editor's Note: Much like the second logo, this logo is best known for its recent airplay in Fuji TV. It's also on the US GNC channel too! Although Homer's voice shouting "Shut up, net-face!" may jar a few viewers, but many people prefer it to be funny. The "We've Got Fleas" version may scare many people due to the logo's distortion and the usage of the 3rd logo's music.
