Pal Pills are items in Super Paper Mario for Wii. These little guys can only be found inside ? Blocks. This 8-bit mini army of 8 will protect you by walking around you. If one makes contact with an enemy, that one will die and damage the enemy. These guys will mimic the current playable character's movement until death. The Pal Pills will stay in the 8-bit form of the person who got them. If you manage to keep a Pal Pill alive after a boss, the Pal Pill will dance when you get a Pure Heart. You can see all 8 if Mario goes 3D. They will make the classic Mario jumping noise in 2D. If you use the pixl Dashell, the Pal Pills can keep up with you, so it must affect them too. If a Pal Pill jumps on an enemy, they won't receive damage, only the enemy will.
