Quad

A quadrilateral (a polygon with four sides and four corners) with texture coordinate information.

Quads can be used to select part of a texture to draw. In this way, one large texture atlas can be loaded, and then split up into sub-images.

O.png Quads 'bleed' when scaled, rotated or drawn at non-integer coordinates, even within SpriteBatches, to compensate for this, use 1px borders (preferably with the same colors as the actual border)
