When Shadow the Hedgehog departed from the Eggman Empire, a pair of Egg Flappers were sent after him, only to be destroyed by Sonic and Tails upon getting close to Freedom HQ.[2] While guarding New Megaopolis, the Egg Flappers caught Espio the Chameleon when he uncovered Dr. Eggman's plans to destroy Knothole. After a lengthy chase, they cornered the chameleon.[3] However, when Eggman's plans were ruined, the doctor had an Egg Flapper carry him away from his defeat at New Mobotropolis.[4]

When the fourth Enerjak managed to escape his custom Egg Grape Chamber, the Egg Flappers and the Badnik Horde tried to vanquish him. However, every single one of them was wiped out by the demigod.[1][5]
