Bug Bot Imp
|Absorbs||13.5 normal damage shots|
|Weakness|| (falling down only)|
|First seen||Far Future - Day 7|

Bug Bot Imp is the Far Future variant of Imp in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is a small, yellow mechanized walker controlled by an Imp. It works exactly as the other Imp variants, except its toughness is higher and it moves differently from them. It is launched by the Gargantuar Prime. Bug Bot Imps will sometimes fall from the sky in the "Bot Swarm!" ambush. They also absorb 13.5 normal damage shots, which makes them tougher to deal with than other Imps (only Imp Porter is tougher than the Bug Bot Imp). Since they fall from the sky, a Blover can be used to blow them off the lawn.
SPEED: Hungry Lands on the lawn past your defenses, then hops forward.

They are the only Imps that will be immobilized by the E.M.Peach. When ambushing you from the sky, the Bug Bot Imps can be also blown away from the Blover, but as they land on the ground immediately after the "Bot Swarm!" message pops up, your timing must be spot-on. Using Shrinking Violet can defeat them instantly like other imps. Besides instant-kill plants, the fastest way to deal with them is the Magnifying Grass. These Imps are even more dangerous because they absorb 13.5 normal damage shots, while the other variations have 9.25, so you need more defense to defeat them. Even though they delay before moving forward, great care should still be taken when dealing with them as they cover large spaces between hops. Fortunately, this pause can give the player a brief moment to set up their defenses before it jumps again.
Avoid using Chili Beans and Garlics as (like other Far Future robots) Bug Bot Imp is immune to the Chili Bean's instant kill and Garlic's lane changing ability, allowing them to eat these plants fully.

- Bug Bot Imp, Imp Monk Zombie from Dark Ages, Imp Dragon Zombie, Imp Mermaid Zombie, Yeti Imp, Lost City Imp Zombie, Impunk, Jurassic Imp, Tiger Imp, and Leprechaun Imp are the only Imp variants that can appear on their own.

- Bug Bot Imp's surprise attack, "Bot Swarm!", is similar to the surprise attack "Leprechauns!" in Piñata Party.
