Mario's Time Machine
Pterodactyls appear in the PC version of Mario's Time Machine. It appears if Mario enters an incorrect time or date into the Timulator, in which case he ends up in the Cretaceous Period. As soon as he arrives, the Pterodactyl begins launching eggs at him, and the only way for Mario to return to the present is by catching enough of them in a basket. The number of eggs that he needs to catch depends on the difficulty that the game is set at. Bullet Bills also attack Mario while he is catching them. After Mario catches enough eggs, he jumps onto the back of Yoshi, who runs back to the present.
Diddy Kong Racing
Pink Pterodactyls appear as airborne obstacles in Diddy Kong Racing, where they appear in Dino Domain courses. Due to being constantly in flight, they only pose an issue when flying a plane. They can also be seen in the ending when Wizpig is defeated the second time.
