Official Profiles

Megabyte is a powerful virus who invaded Mainframe by stealth, attached to an innocent word processing program. From his lair in the Silicon Tor, Megabyte commands his viral army patroling the sectors of Mainframe he has infected, looking for new opportunities to expand his evil empire.[1]

Megabyte is a virus, his function is to gain as much power and control as possible. Highly intelligent and incredibly polite, Megabyte hides his vicious viral nature behind a suave English accent. He is a gentleman virus with an evil grace; his style is smooth and deceptive. Megabyte knows that this charm is his best weapon as it hides his boiling frustration, the insatiable ambition for more and more.

Megabyte is physically powerful in his own right and is perhaps the strongest individual in Mainframe. However, he does realize that he has formidable opponents and uses caution around clever characters like Dot, Phong and especially Bob. Megabyte and Bob have a highly-charged relationship in that they are locked in a constant duel to outsmart each other.

It is his addiction to power that drives him to overcome his opponents, and his thirst for ultimate domination that finds him in the constant attempt to open a portal into the Super Computer.[2]

Biography

Powers/Abilities

Non-Canon

  • Early materials refer to Megabyte as having invaded Mainframe disguised as or attached to a word processing program. This was contradicted in Season 4.
  • In the ReBoot Style Guide for Season 1, Enzo says Megabyte first arrived in Mainframe before he was born (another thing dropped by S4!) and that he was created by "some low level-formatted hacker." Megabyte was supposed to have been unable to control his temper and his toxic attributes were preventing him from going much further than he had, which would have stayed true if BSnP hadn't left the scene!
  • The manual for ReBoot: Countdown to Chaos makes a brief reference to Megabyte having inherited the precursor to Hack and Slash from his father, Kilobyte. This was also contradicted in Season 4, although he is at least descended after a fashion from Killabyte, which sounds the same and who could be loosely considered his father. It also contradicts the Season 1 style guide, which says Hack and Slash were built as his "personal muscle machines."
