Pi bonds

Just to clarify, the pi bonds in double and triple bonds are from unhybridized orbitals, right?

pretty much! the leftover unhybridized orbitals just overlap as pi bonds

Pi bonds come from the double and triple bonds formed by overlapping orbitals when atoms share electrons (covalent bonding). So yes, you're right(:

yes, such as in benzene carbon has 3sp^2 orbitals, with two being bonded to other c-atoms and one being bonded to a hydrogen, the leftover unhybridized pz bond is what forms the molecular orbital above and below the ring structure of the benzene
