Escape is the theme that plays during a Countdown only in Metroid, the remake Metroid: Zero Mission and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

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.

The original theme from the NES version can be heard here: [1], the Famicom version ripped from the Super Metroid: Sound in Action CD here: [2] (track contains several sound effects), the Zero Mission theme here: [3] and the theme from Echoes here: [4].

A remixed version appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and can be heard here: [5] It now features a portion of the Brinstar theme. It was composed by Akari Kaida of Capcom.
