Byte was a character in the video game TRON 2.0 resembling the Bit that traveled with Kevin Flynn. Unlike his predecessors, Byte was able to speak in full sentences, and usually resorted to sarcasm, deadpan humor, and the odd philosophical tirade. It was clearly insulted when Jet mistook it for a Bit, saying Ma3a knew better than to send a Bit to do a Byte's job.
When a viral attack forced Ma3a to digitize Jet, she sent Byte to assist him with information and in opening "Byte Sockets" to help Jet get through force fields. Byte was a loyal assistant to Ma3a and ally to Jet, and held a low opinion of the Kernel and the ICPs, saying their acronym stood for "Incompetent, Confused Programs."
Unfortunately, when Ma3a was compiled with the Tron Legacy code, she attacked Byte, sending it careening into the wall of the Progress Bar where it shattered and derezzed upon impact.
- In real-life, a byte consists of 8 bits, having a maximum of 256 possible combinations.
- The Byte seen in TRON 2.0: Killer App (Game Boy Advance) with Mercury was bright pink, always in the "talking" state and voiced by a female.
