At 0.08 into Boat Drill from Morituri is what seems like the earliest appearance I can find of what would later develop into the Rambo/First Blood ostinato. I know it shows up in a lot of other scores including some of his earlier works in various guises and forms. When it does it always gives me a smile.
It certainly was a killer motif and was really missed in the later Rambo flicks.

Heck yeah. There’s a similar 5-note phrase used in The River Wild, with different notes, because Meryl Streep is certainly as badass as Rambo in that film.

Contract On Cherry Street also has that same bit.

Not certain what you mean but maybe you mean what also can be heard very prominently several times in "The Satan Bug": "Bottle snatcher" and "The killers at home".

The best example I can give is the first 10 secs of Hanging On from First Blood.
There's a very slight early variation on that straight off the blocks in Meet Von Ryan from Von Ryan's Express.
