  • Impkata: Rapidly spins and fires Imp Blasters in all directions, dealing damage to nearby enemies.
  • Z-Mech: Summons a powerful, heavily-armed Z-Mech for a limited time, increasing health and firepower.

Imp Variants

  2. Lil’ Drake: This fire-themed variant deals fire damage over time with its primary weapon, the Drake Blasters. Lil’ Drake’s Z-Mech is equipped with a flamethrower for close-range combat.

  4. S.H.R.Imp: With its laser-based S.H.R.Imp Blasters, this variant deals splash damage and has a more extended range. Its Z-Mech is equipped with a laser cannon and can create an energy barrier.
  5. Party Imp: This legendary variant gains a damage boost and movement speed increase when its Party Time meter is filled. Its primary weapon and Z-Mech abilities are similar to the base Imp.
