In The Quest of Ki, Druaga appears in the opening and ending. The opening shows him taking over the Blue Crystal Rod and the tower built by the Sumer Empire, turning it into the The Tower of Druaga and filling it with monsters. Ishtar gives the maiden Ki the task to recover the Blue Crystal Rod in the tower, but when she reaches the 60th floor, Druaga turns her into stone. Druaga then splits the Blue Crystal Rod into three rods and hides each in one floor from the tower, giving one of them to Succubus.
In The Tower of Druaga, Gilgamesh goes to the Tower of Druaga to save Ki and recover the Blue Crystal Rod, fighting against Druaga in the 59th floor. Druaga sends personifications of him to face Gil, starting by a fast Hyper Knight, than Wizards, and lastly a fake Quox. After defeating the three, Druaga appears in person to face Gil. Druaga has great strength and speed, and is able to warp through walls. Despite all his power, Gil manages to slain him and frees Ki.
In The Return of Ishtar, the second room, Druaga's Grave, has a image of Druaga with R.I.P. written on it. In rooms 94 and 127 there is a knight enemy with Gil's appearance named the Soul of Druaga.
In The Blue Crystal Rod, Druaga's previous appearances are shown in the prologue. Depending of the player's actions, Gil and Ki can go to the underworld to talk with him.
Druaga is the final boss from Seme COM Dungeon: Drururuaga, where he uses the Diamond Mace to become Drururuaga (ドルルルアーガ?). As Drururuaga, his appearance is the same, but his power is far greater than before. Despite this, Gilsh manages to defeat him in the top of the tower. Druaga can also be summoned with the Spell Card #75, but he attacks any allies present in the room he is inside.
Druaga is a boss in the game The Nightmare of Druaga: Fushigino Dungeon. With Ishtar's help, Gil returns in time to save Ki from her fate, facing Druaga again in the 59th floor of the tower. After his defeat, Druaga merges with Succubus and becomes Ultimate Druaga, highly increasing their powers. Only the head and eight arms of this giant form are visible. Despite this, Ultimate Druaga is slain and the plan Druaga had set to happen in the future is stopped.
