Imps, ferocious and agile demons, are found all over Hell and are often used in the front line during concerted attacks in either dimension. They revel in battle, feeding off their victims, when the hunger takes them.

The Imp is the most common enemy in DOOM, acting as a grunt-demon to support the possessed humans wandering around. They are shown to be distrustful of other demons, often initiating in combat with others. Theories currently say that they are lesser Summoners but this is not confirmed by any basis.
