The original Metroid version differed depending on whether the game was the NES or Famicom Disk System version. In the NES version, there is a simple "whoop whoop" sound, while the Famicom version features a screeching siren. The Famicom version is included on the Super Metroid: Sound in Action CD, titled Escape!
The NES version also features an uplifting part that was removed in later versions, which made it sound closer to the original Japanese theme.
