So I'm making the animation of an asteroid coming at breakneck speed and hits my logo and causes it to dent. But what effect(s) needed for the dent?

You can try messing with one of these - Liquify, Bezier Warp and Mesh Warp.

Liquify fx is sufficient. Thank you so much to you sir and others here. The fx didn't cross my mind at all until you tell me. Oh yeah Mr Dave I also apply some dust to it upon impact from the asteroid and also put a free sound fx - explosion. thanks all

You don't say whether your logo is 3D or not, so I'll assume it's not. In addition to what Roland has suggested, you might also want to create a secondary texture map (or just recolor if in 2D) which changes at the frame the asteroid hits your logo. Because, you know when an asteroid hits your logo you're going to have to have your paint job repaired. Maybe some burn marks, or dust/debris. Depends on the scale of your logo, of course.

...not to mention the additional animation of position, rotation, scale, etc. that would occur after the logo is hit.

If this thing can be dented, my mind tells me it should react with some movement. What kind of movement? How much? That's a matter of personal taste, and based on how strong/massive/immovable the animator believes the object being struck should be.
