After the credits complete, the company name fades in and Snap flatlines and dies, with a long, high-pitched beep heard. This variation is especially rare, as reruns of the finale plastered it over with the typical credits.

Nicknames: "GLITTER! :D", "The Thing and the Face of Doom", "Evil Thing and Face", "Evil Ultimate Enterprise Studios", "The 90's Ultimate Enterprise Studios", "Extremely Scary Face", "PinchFace’s 2D Animated Cousin"
Logo: On a white background with glitter, which quickly changes to red, the yellow text "The Ultimate Enterprise Studios" zooms out in the teeth-like thing. When it goes to it's desired place, a mysterious flash occurs. The BG changes to black and the text becomes blue. Then the words "A Crystal Franks Productions Inc Company" appears below it. Suddenly, the distorted eyes and teeth that looks like a face from the from the Dynamikun logo appears out of nowhere and starts laughing like a alien.
- On Mega Man, the logo is in warp speed.
- On the 2000 VHS release of Berlin, the logo is still and next to it on the left are the words "Sponsored by" with the Taco Bell logo below "Sponsored by".
- Rarely enough, the glitter would sometimes be replaced with a Grid
Trivia: It made a surprising appearance in the early airing in the Pokémon episode "Island of the Giant Pokémon" in the US in 1998. It seems that there was an editing mistake. It appears that the Ultimate Enterprise Studios was having problems with the logos due to a possible lawsuit and used this logo. Luckily, in 1999, the 4Kids logo plastered this horrid logo in current airings of the show. Also, it is the last logo to be used until 2010.
FX/SFX: The zoom in, and the flash. For the Berlin variant, none.
Music/Sounds: It starts off with an eerie bass humming sound, which is joined by a rising synth chord. It's followed by An ominous, warbling Moog synthesizer piece followed by a alien laugher that sounds g-major-ish at the end. A Pop sound can be heard when the face appears.

- On Mega Man, the music is even faster and it’s held longer, the alien laughter is now warped than usual.
- Sometimes, an announcer saying "In the presentation of Ultimate Enterprise Studios" can be heard.
Availability: Rare, seen on their shows such as Mega Man, Snap's World, Yuji Jitsu and Dynamo during the time. It was also seen on the VHS version of Berlin that was released in 2000.
Editor's Note: It was known to be considered one of the scariest logos created for an animation studio, thanks to the face along with its ominous effects. However, it's less scary for those who have expected to see it.

Nicknames: "The Revival of the Ultimate Enterprise Studios", "Ultimate Enterprise Studios Returns!", "The 2010's Ultimate Enterprise Studios" "White Ball"
