Eyepi'illos are enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. In the field, Eyepi'illos sit still on the ground, as if they have been deactivated. When Mario and Luigi approach, the Eyepi'illos activate, signalled by a pinkish light forming in their eye. The robot then rises to a high altitude and starts to chase Mario and Luigi, charging up and firing a laser beam at them while doing so. The Bros. can quickly attack the robots in the overworld to start combat with them before the Eyepi'illo has a chance to attack. If the Bros. escape from them, the Eyepi'illos may deactivate.

In battle, Eyepi'illos can float up into the sky, land in front a Bro, and start spinning rapidly, with their inside lighting up with a pinkish tint as the robot charges up a laser beam. The Bro it has landed in front of must hammer the Eyepi'illo before it fires the laser at him, and must whack it when it's not facing either Mario or Luigi, as the Eyepi'illo fires the energy ball in the direction it was facing when hit, which hits anything in its path, friend or foe.

The Eyepi'illo may also float near the Bro it plans to attack, charge up, and fire a barrage of three to five laser blasts at the approached Bro, who must jump to avoid it. If successful in avoiding the lasers, the Eyepi'illo will then float down to ground level and charge at the same Bro, who must jump on or over the Eyepi'illo to avoid it.

When it is low on HP, the Eyepi'illo will set its body on fire and circle around the two Bros. The Bros must hammer the Eyepi'illo when it crosses above one of their heads. If they successfully hammer the flying machine, it is sent flying into another enemy, damaging the enemy in its explosion. If they take too long to hammer the Eyepi'illo, the robot explodes and dies, damaging an unlucky Bro.

Due to their ability to fly, the Eyepi'illos cannot be damaged by ground-hugging attacks or the Dropchopper's shockwave. They can, however, be damaged by the Fire Flower, the Bomb Derby, the Slingsniper, and any attacks that strike from above.

Eyepi'illos are created by and seemingly modelled after the Pi'illodium. They share several similarities; they are made of stone, fly with wing-like appendages, shoot lasers that lower DEF, and self-destruct when nearing defeat. They are also both found in Somnom Woods, and the Pi'illo Temple hidden deep in said woods.

Sculptures similar to Eyepi'illos are exhibited in the collection room of the Pi'illo Castle, which has been partially remodelled into a museum of Pi'illo history.
