[[caption-width:250:Such horrors cannot be unseen...]]

''Bytes of Life'' is a gag-based {{webcomic}} starring two humans; Kakujo; his his baby daughter, Ilia; and various video game characters, mainly Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s, though others, such as {{Sackboy}} from LittleBigPlanet appear on occasion. It is written and drawn by Bryan Lacie.

The comic uses a full-colored, mostly cell-shaded style.

If you are a fan of Nintendo, real-world/game-world mashups, or video games in general, this is a web-comic you must read.

It can be found at its umbrella-site: [[ KakuJomics]].
