Capnaps are sleepy creatures covered in yellow flaps with several strands of grass on their heads that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, located in Mushrise Park. They closely resemble the multi-layered hill-like mushrooms found throughout the park. They may appear in battle with Thorbs. Three of them are required to battle, which serves as a tutorial for Bros. Attacks.


Capnaps have many attacks. They may teeter drowsily back and forth near a Bro., who must either smack the ground near it with his hammer to wake it up, or smash the Capnap itself before it inevitably crashes into him. They also are able to run at both Mario and Luigi by running into the foreground or background and dashing straight towards them, where they must jump as the Capnap nears them to avoid it.

They may also attempt to charge into a Bro. after approaching him, which can be evaded by jumping before the Capnap hits him. Sometimes the Capnap falls asleep before it is awakened by a noise and attacking. In this case, the Bros. must time their jumps properly.

Variants of Capnaps appear in the Dream World, being Dreamcaps and Dreamcap Captains. These in turn have stronger variants, the Dreamcaps R and Dreamcap Captains R.
