Pi'illos, also referred to as Pi'illo folk, are a species of pillow-like characters that debuted in the game Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. They live on Pi'illo Island of the Pi'illo Kingdom along with the Brocks.
Long ago in the Pi'illo Kingdom, the Pi'illo folk were leaving peacefully until an evil bat king named Antasma steal the Dark Stone. Antasma intended to use the Dark Stone for evil purposes but Prince Dreambert and the Pi'illo folk sealed him into the dream world. However, before he was sealed, Antasma shattered the Dark Stone causing the shattered pieces called Nightmare Chunks to fall on the Pi'illo folk and trapping them inside.
Many years into the future, Prince Dreambert was freed thanks to Mario and Luigi. Dreambert explains that sleeping on a pillow and destroying a number of Nightmare Chunks causes the Pi'illo folk that was trapped inside to be free. Dreambert also was that Luigi's wavelength is similar to that of the Pi'illo folk meaning that he can summon the portal to the dream world whenever he sleeps on one.
There are different types of Pi'illos that appear throughout the game possessing different types of appearances.
