Capnaps are sleepy species that appear in the game Mario and Luigi: Dream Team. They are located in Mushrise Park south below Pi'illo Castle. They are the real-world counterparts of the Dreamcaps.


Capnaps appear to have a full body of feathers with 3 different colors top-to-bottom, which are: yellow, yellow-orange, and orange. This coat covers their whole body, making them appear somewhat like a bush. Capnaps also have two eyes right in front of their yellow feathers. At the top of their bodies, the enemies have two green pieces of grass, at the bottom are brown feet under their feathers. In the field, like any other enemy they will to chase after Mario and Luigi one they spotted them. However, they also appear to be drowsy as they'll tend to sleep for a few seconds (with a snot bubble coming from beneath their eyes for a comedic effect). If Mario and Luigi get closer around this enemy, it will wake up, heading on their tail.

In Battle

Capnaps can attack in by simply charging straight towards both Mario and Luigi in the foreground or the background. The bros. must both jump to evade the attack. When jumping they can counter on the Capnap. If one of them manages to counter, the Capnap will basically stop and return to its post. Another attack is when, Capnap gets drowsy, falls, and sleepwalks towards a bro. It will start teethering when it towards a bro and then walk straight forward hurting Mario or Luigi. The targeted bro must time the Capnap's teetering and hammer the Capnap before it hurts him. (If the target swings his hammer too quickly, the Capnap has a chance to wake up.



These dreamy Capnaps are found throughout Dreamy Mushrise Park. They come in two forms that determine their rank. The common Dreamcap has a pink coloration and is small while the alphas (Dreamcap Captain) are stronger and lead the pack and are identifiable by their purple feathers. Common Dreamcaps are cowardly and will flee if you kill their Alpha. A stronger, green variation called the Dreamcap R can be found in Dreamy Driftwood Shore, with rainbow-colored alphas.

Dreamcaps attack by charging, which can be jumped over (either from the east or heading south from the background). Dreamcap R's have the same attacks plus one more: stacking up and charging. The Mario brothers can counter the last one with their hammers.

All three variants are weak to moves that cause fire damage such as Luigi's Fire Flower Bros. Attack.
