Sleepy Sheep is an item found in the Paper Mario series. When used, many sheep run across the screen, causing most enemies to fall into a deep slumber, in which they cannot perform any moves until they awaken. Some enemies have a higher resistance to sleep than others - so it is never guaranteed that this item will affect all enemies in a battle. Bosses have a very high resistance to sleep and many other status conditions.

For Koopa Koot's second favor, he asks Mario to get him a Sleepy Sheep so that he can sleep better.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, if Zess T. mixes a Point Swap and a Tasty Tonic, a Sleepy Sheep is produced. Also, if a Sleepy Sheep is mixed with a Point Swap, a Tasty Tonic is produced. Mousimilian's trouble reveals that one can buy Sleepy Sheep at Rogueport and sell them at Petalburg to earn two coins per Sleepy Sheep.

In Super Paper Mario, Sleepy Sheep can be bought from shopkeepers, and sometimes dropped by enemies. If given to Saffron, she cooks up a Mistake that causes sleep.

In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, there is a hammer sticker called the Baahammer, which is a purple hammer with a Sleepy Sheep symbol on the top. Any undefeated enemies after using the sticker in battle ends up falling asleep, making them lose a turn. While asleep, enemies recover 1 HP every turn.
