The Warriors of Light are the primary protagonists and would-be heroes of 8-Bit Theater. Their position was appointed by King Steve; however, he was tricked into thinking that they were the warriors of legend.
They are supposed to save the world from a "total, yet vague doom mentioned in an ancient prophecy". Most of the time however, they do more harm than good, earning them nicknames such as "Blight Warriors" and "Insatiable Flying Death Mongers". For this reason, Sarda claims that they are, in fact, the evil that must be destroyed. It is likely that he is biased, though, as they murdered his parents three or four times. And destroyed the orphanage where he lived. And broke his mind by exposing him to Black Mage's face. And generally ruined his life in every possible way.

Other Light Warriors
There is a group of "real" Light Warriors who had the Orbs of Light that were supposed to indicate who the destined Warriors of Light were. They are often inadvertently tortured through actions caused by the Light Warriors and one of their members, named Barry.
White Mage and Black Belt are sometimes seen as unofficial Light Warriors. Red Mage once jokingly wanted to make Jeff the "honorary fifth Light Warrior". Dragoon and Drizz'l have also replaced Black Mage at various points.
A gag also featured "Bard", the fifth Light Warrior who was apparently unmade before he was born after annoying Sarda. Whether this is canonical or not is to be determined.
When trapped by Garland they ask for 2 Mr Pibbs, a Dr Pepper, an RC cola, a bucket of cheesy chips, some chocolate bars, a chocolate bar in the shape of a sword, and a bowl of popcorn. It is currently unknown who ordered what, except for the chocolate bar in the shape of a sword which was obviously Fighter's, though he ate some of the popcorn.
