In Sweet and Elite, Star Gazer appears several times during Becoming Popular (The Pony Everypony Should Know) and at the Canterlot Garden Party. He attends both wedding ceremonies as well as the reception in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2.

Star Gazer appears at Twilight Sparkle's princess coronation in Magical Mystery Cure.

Star Gazer appears at Fashion Week in Rarity Takes Manehattan, at Appleloosa at the beginning of Pinkie Pride, in Sweetie Belle's dream in For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils (in which he has a brief speaking role), in the stadium crowd in Equestria Games, at the Crystal Empire in Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1, and again in Appleloosa at the end of Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2.
