- "You are out of demons! At least there are always imps..." - Worthless Imp
Collectible imps have a variety of abilities and stats, and are each uniquely named. Excluding Nether Imp, all types of uncollectible imp are 1/1 minions with no special abilities, and most have the same name - Imp.
Types[edit | edit source]
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Type||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
Stealth. At the end of your turn, give another random friendly minion +1 Health. Imps are content to hide and viciously taunt everyone nearby.
Battlecry: Summon a copy of this minion. What's worse than finding two imps in your lab? Only finding one of them.
Battlecry: Deal 3 damage to your hero. Imps like being on fire. They just do.
|Imp Gang Boss||Common||Minion||Demon||Warlock||3||2||4|
Whenever this minion takes damage, summon a 1/1 Imp. His imp gang likes to sneak into Stormwind to spraypaint "Ragnaros Rulez" on the Mage Tower.
Whenever you discard a card, draw a card. Malchezaar used to have an imp named Dobby working for him, but there was a tragic accident.
Your other minions have +1 Attack. The result of a tragic accident involving a Defias Thug, a Wand of Polymorph, and a bundle of Fel Lotus.
Spell Damage +1 His first trick: making your wallet disappear!
Deathrattle: Give a random friendly minion +2 Health. THIS wood imp. Stop asking!
You are out of demons! At least there are always imps...
|Tiny Knight of Evil||Rare||Minion||Demon||Warlock||2||3||2|
Whenever you discard a card, gain +1/+1. "No, no, no. I asked for a tiny JESTER of evil."
After you summon a minion, deal 5 damage to your Hero. Get the ingredients wrong on ONE healing potion and they take your license. What a world!

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Street Trickster, Sneaky Devil, and Imp summoned by Imp Master are the only imps accessible to non-Warlocks without the use of copy or mind control effects.
- The voice lines of all Imps show great reluctance and frustration to follow the Warlock's orders. They are also almost all humorous, in contrast to many other Demons' darker quotes.
- Tiny Knight of Evil was the first Imp added to Hearthstone without the word "Imp" in its name, in The Grand Tournament expansion.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- The imps are a mischievous and nefarious race of small, fiendish creatures. The simplest of the summoning spells a warlock can learn is that of the imp. Before they are imparted to this, they must prove that they have the necessary magical and physical ability. Though it lacks physical strength, it possesses powers and a cleverness that serve warlocks well. All imps however are afraid of rainbows.
In Hearthstone[edit | edit source]
- Imps are like roaches. If you see one, there are definitely more nearby, and they’re probably doing things like letting the air out of your tires, changing your computer’s background to something embarrassing, or ’plosioning. It’s even worse when they’re in a gang . . . or SUPER GREAT if they’re on your side.
