Wrecking Crew series
Eggplant Men first appear on the second stage of the construction site in the game Wrecking Crew. An Eggplant Man runs around in a predictable pattern - he runs straight until he hits a Dead-End Drum and has to turn around. He climbs up or down any ladder he comes across in his path. If both a ladder up and a ladder down are in his path, he goes down if moving left and up if moving right.
Wrecking Crew '98
In the sequel Wrecking Crew '98, Eggplant Man is the second challenger in puzzle mode. He also appears in the original game on the same cart.
The Eggplant Wizards of Nintendo's 1986 game Kid Icarus were designed in part as a tribute to Wrecking Crew's Eggplant Men, as well as Kid Icarus graphics designer Toru Osawa's "passion for eggplants."
Eggplant Man appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a collectible trophy.
He also appears in Chibi-Robo! (Nintendo GameCube 2005) as Kid Eggplant, one of the three treasures Captain Plankbeard is searching for. The captain is wild about eggplants, and attempts to capture Kid Eggplant, but he does not succeed. For freeing him, Kid Eggplant rewards Chibi-Robo with a Super Eggplant and a Kid Eggplant Sticker, after Chibi kindly rejects Kid Eggplant's offer to turn him into an eggplant.
