The 8 bits is a club from evil dreams consisting of Shyguys, Snifits, Ninjis, Beezos, and many other creatures that aided Wart in his conquest of the land of dreams, Subcon, in Super Mario Bros. 2. Their name is a reference to the size of the Ricoh 2A03/2A07 processor's CPU registers: 8 bits. Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Toadstool encountered members of the 8 bits in almost every location they visited, be it in the desert, clouds, or tundra. Shyguys are the most numerous members of the 8 bits, and are seen in every area during Wart's conquest.
