2nd Logo (2000-2002)


Nickname: "Treyarch Knot II"

Logo: We see the same Treyarch trefoil knot from the previous logo. The word "TREYARCH" which is in a different font this time.

Variants: There are different variations of the logo.

  • Draconus: Cult of the Wyrm (known as Dragons Blood in the UK)/Max Steel: Convert Missions: On a black background, the Treyarch trefoil knot appears, but the back 3D parts are not there and there is a blue shiny glow on the right part of it. The word "TREYARCH" is in black, has a white outline and it's glowing in blue. There is no animation in this logo.
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x: On a black background, the black and white smudged-styled parts of the logo come in side-by-side and attach themselves forming the logo. A few seconds later, it shatters down to reveal the blue 3D version of the logo. Then "TREYARCH" pans down turning as the Treyarch trefoil knot zooms through us rotating.
  • NHL 2K2: We see a blue 3D circle on a icy ground. Then it shakes and flips up. Then it flips the sides of it becoming the Treyarch trefoil knot. When that happens, it shines. As the Treyarch Knot zooms back, the icy ground disappears and the word "TREYARCH", appears zooming out and stops under the logo.

FX/SFX: Depends on the variant.

Music/Sounds: Depends on the variant

Variants: There are different variations of the logo.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (Demo): We see the blue Treyarch trefoil knot with "TREYARCH" in front of it in a different font. There are very few bubbles around the logo and has a glow around it. Also it has The Matrix-styled effect.
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater/Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2: We see the Treyarch trefoil knot in grafiiti style with the orange-yellow gradient outline tilted facing northeast. On it, we see "Treyarch" in a Graffiti styled font with a green outline. Under "Treyarch" is the website URL "www.treyarch.com". The logo flashes orange and green colors. Then parts of colors appear side-by-side. Then it flashes again. Then the colors disappear in a snake transition.
  • NHL 2K3: We see the top view of the ice floor which has the Treyarch logo (Which this time, the Treyarch knot is blue and has the white and blue outlines around it and the word "TREYARCH" is seen under but it's in a Art-Deco like font, which also have the white and blue outlines around it as well) covered with ice. Then the Zamboni (with the SuperCool design) appears driving from the bottom and going up, revealing the logo. After that, the logo starts to glow via the ray effect and the screen flashes causing the logo to have the emboss shining effect and the background to become plain black. The logo shines as the rays dim away.

4th Logo (2001-2008)

Nickname: "Treyarch Knot IV"

Logo: We see a new design of the Treyarch trefoil, doesn't have the cut outs and has few white shines around it. Under it is "TREYARCH" in a new font which later resembles a Spider-Man movie-like font.

Variants: There are different variations of the logo.

  • Spider-Man (the 2000 game): We see the Treyarch trefoil Under it is "TREYARCH". The logo shines with a bright light once.
  • Spider-Man: The Movie/Spider-Man 2: On a black background we see a Treyarch trefoil knot, zooming-out quickly through us and into the red spiderweb. The trefoil knot sticks itself into the web and shakes a little. Then the spiderweb fades out. As the trefoil knot dissolves in a blur transition, the word "TREYARCH", appears flipping in side-by-side. Then the blue light travels through the logo.
  • Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer: The Treyarch logo (but the text is shifted up closer), appears in the water with some ripple effects. As the logo stops rippling and settles into it's position, the water background fades into the spotlight like background with the logo shadow's behind it. The logo shines and then the background with it's shadow fades into white. Then the logo fades out into white a brief second later.
  • Minority Report: Everybody Runs: A light splash draws the metal-silver Treyarch knot. Then the letters rotate and become visible one-after-one forming the word, "TREYARCH". The logo flashes and then proceeds to the intro movie.
  • Ultimate Spider-Man: We zoom through a blue space full of rectangles, when Spider-Man comes on a web and jumps into the screen, where the box appears. There is a blue Treyarch knot next to the character, and words "A TREYARCH GAME" in a Century Gothic Bold font with "TREYARCH" in it's corporate font, written below each in the single box. The logo then clears out by zooming through.
  • Call of Duty 2: Big Red One: Starting above the ground surface, we see it slowly zooming out and many projectiles fly around as there is a war. Then the rocket hits right below, making everything blow up in fire. It reveals giant crater made by the explosion, with the Treyarch logo inside, first orange from burning, then becoming black.
  • Call of Duty 3: The Treyarch logo appears with orange knot. It then zooms out and seems to be a chevron on a soldier's arm. The soldier who has the logo looks in our side, while others look forward to the distant fires and prepare for the warfare.
  • Spider-Man 3: We can see close images of the yellow trefoil knot (partially), running Spider-Man and his spider image suit. He releases the web and jumps around, making the trefoil knot fully shown, as if it have been created from the web blasts. The logo then becomes silver as the word "TREYARCH" appears under the logo.
  • Spider-Man: Web of Shadows: On a dark blue gradient background, we see the blue Treyarch knot emerging light, rotating slowly to the right and trembling violently in the process. Then metallic letters of "TREYARCH", fly and place themselves over the knot. After the text forms, the knot fades out. The red circle with the knot appears near to the text, which itself changes to red while the background fades out.

  • Call of Duty: World at War: We see many changing pictures of war chronicles. The movie is made as an old footage - it's grayscale and it trembles. We can briefly see the logo (but the text is under the logo), then it appears in full view and zooms out, changing then to Activision logo.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops: The footage is based on a pictures of warfare chronicles, mainly secret documents, until we can see the following words on them: "A Treyarch Production" with "Treyarch" bigger. Then the silver knot appears. The Activision logo with helicopters go after this.
