A Sprite is a two-dimensional image or animation that is integrated into a larger scene created by 1's and 0's used in home video-game consoles and Arcade Machines. It could also be called a character model. They first appeared in Mortal Kombat.

As opposed to the normal animated cartoon graphics, the sprites on Mortal Kombat were based on actors, giving them a realistic look and more accurate fighting movement.
