Ever since that game, they have appeared in multiple games, even as a playable character. His first playable game appearance is Mario Power Tennis for the GameCube. A Fly Guy also appears as a playable character in the Nintendo DS video game Mario Hoops 3-on-3, where you can unlock him by completing the Star Tournament in Hard mode.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Fly Guys appear as enemies in Star Hill in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. They carry time bombs with a number from 0 to 3. One attack involves a Fly Guy flying upwards and dropping the bomb on its target. Halfway in the top screen means Luigi, all the way top means Mario. It can be countered with the hammer. Every counter or hit makes the bomb lose one number. If it hits zero, it explodes. If the Fly Guy survives, it gets a new bomb. The other attack is rocking back and forth to throw it. The number of times it rocks depends on who gets hit. If it rocks twice or six times, it rolls towards Luigi, and if it rocks four or eight times, it rolls towards Mario. This can be dodged by jumping.
They also appear if the player causes a Boom Guy to lose its launcher. A pair of red Fly Guys drop a new one on its head. The same event applies for Elite Boom Guys except the Fly Guys are blue. Fly Guys also appear when a Handfake uses a Bowser cut-out attack, where it carries a flame cut-out and flies towards Luigi to attempt to damage him.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
In battle, Fly Guys' attacks revolve around using Goombas, and due to this, they spawn Goombas during battle. Fly Guys cease to spawn Goombas after four have been spawned, even if there aren't any more Goombas on the field. Fly Guys also will not spawn any more Goombas if there are three already in battle.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam
Fly Guys appear as enemies in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. They only appear in specific missions, such as in Doop Doop Dunes's twenty minute quest, in Bowser's Castle when the player has to rescue Toadette from one, and in a couple of other required quests. If two or more Fly Guys appear in a battle, one will be holding a bomb. If the Fly Guy with the bomb is defeated, it will drop the bomb and damage other enemies. Sometimes the Fly Guy will give the bomb to another Fly Guy until Mario, Luigi or Paper Mario chooses a Command Block.

- "This enemy from the Yoshi's Island series is basically a Shy Guy with a propeller on its head. It hauls items with it as it flies, so chase it down to claim a reward. Usually, it's just food but, sometimes one will have some better prizes. One could say that these ones are ... pretty fly for a Shy Guy. No? Never mind."
