Imps are small demons that more closely resemble mischievous children in purple demon costumes, given the way their faces appear to be showing from the headpiece of such a costume. They are armed with pitchforks, and constantly have their tongues sticking out, which often affects their speech.
Despite their unassuming appearance, imps have access to some of the most potent spells known, such as Kaboom and Kathwack, and while this may cause a scare, they almost never have the energy necessary to cast these high-end spells but try to all the same, often to humorous results. Due to this, they are one of the more comical, inept monsters that can be found in the series, but can still prove dangerous in some titles. Because of their magical knowledge, armament, and position as demons, imps are regularly believed to be the infantile forms of archdemons.
They appear much differently in Dragon Quest VII, likely being a different species of monster altogether, with somewhat hunched forms, lanky limbs, and dour expressions. This imp also comes unarmed, but has antennae that can be used to fire lasers.

|Description||Juvenile forms of elite magical monsters. Imps try to cast spells which are far too powerful for them and fail every time.|
Imps are likely to first be encountered whilst climbing the Tower of Alexandria. While they are prone to miserably failing at casting powerful spells, they may perform a cool breath attack that can be very dangerous at this point of the adventure.
