Sprite is a bitmap graphic that is part of a larger scene and can be in a variety of file formats (which include PNG). PNG format is lossless, unlike other potential sprite file formats. A PNG can not be directly animated (unlike a Sprite) but can be combined with other PNG files into an APNG and become animated.

When a large number of sprites are combined in a single image they can be downloaded and cached with a single server request. You can add custom graphics unsupported by the OS’s API using sprites. Yes they can be animated.

.png files are raster images.
I’m still not completely clear on that,
but they are subject to distortion when resizing.
