Bytes are a series of near field communication figures released by Pyro Enterprizes, which are heavily based off of Nintendo's amiibo. However, Bytes are unique for their "cross-connective properties", which enable individual Bytes to link up and interact with one another.
Similarly to amiibo, Bytes are small figurines with NFC capabilities, capable of storing and transferring data between compatible games and devices. Unlike amiibo, Bytes possess enough storage space to contain multiple types of game data, making data deletion less common.
Another interesting aspect of Bytes is the fact that the figurines are fully posable, and can even be removed from their bases without any loss of function. In this case, the figurine acts as a normal action figure, while the base retains all NFC functionality.
The biggest draw of Bytes is the magnetic contacts on each side of their hexagonal bases. By attaching two Bytes together via these contacts, they will interact with one another by transferring data. Depending on which game the Bytes are used on, this can have a variety of effects, ranging from a "primary" Byte training other Bytes in Super Smash Bros. Y or Dragon Ball: Infinite Xenoverse to trading stored items or messages in Splatoon: Splashdown or Pokémon EX, to simply acting as scanning figures and not having a data-save function.
