This is Byte, a sword forged of pure energy, once shattered into disparate parts, now reunited. Countless caverns and dungeons have been lit by its glow, and countless quests finished by the deft swings of countless heroes. I feel I should mention the glow again. It's really bright. Honestly, this thing kinda makes a better flashlight than a sword.
(In-game plural: Bytes)

- Byte's description is a reference to Sting, Bilbo's blade in J. R. R. Tolkien's novel The Lord of the Rings: There is similarity in naming, as "Byte" is a homophone to "bite." Both bite and sting are single syllable verbs describing a piercing attack performed by animals, as well as the wound caused by such an attack. Also Sting and Byte are both distinct from other blades by their ability to glow.
- Although, there's some debate about this interpretation.
- Byte is also a reference to the fact that it is a digital blade made from eight pixels. A byte is a unit of digital information made up of eight bits.
