They can be tough nuts to crack.

Future Imp is a zombie encountered in Garden Ops in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and a few of Agent Citron's missions. It can shoot purple lasers at plants, called in-game the Future Laser, and do a spinning suicide attack similar to the Exploding Imp, called the Self-Destruct. They do not have very high health, around 25 health points, and move rather slowly, so they are not very hard to deal with, unless they come in large swarms, in which case their sheer number can overwhelm you, especially when paired with stronger zombies, such as the Robo-Zombie.



  • They resemble the Bug Bot Imps from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • These Imps have no real spawning animation. Instead of popping out of the ground, they just suddenly appear out of nowhere.
    • However, they do have animations for being gooped, swallowed from both sides, and eaten by Burrow.
  • If the player is on a rooftop and the Future Imp is running towards them, the Future Imp will stop when it is close to where the player would be on the ground, and then it will use its Self-Destruct, not damaging the player and killing itself.
  • When it jumps, it legs retract into it, and pop back out when it has landed.
    • It falls very slowly, as if it is using moon gravity.
  • These imps have a variety of unique sounds, although they use sound effects from the Mech Gargantuar and the Imp.
  • It is odd that they are named "Future Imps", because the Imp and the Mech Gargantuar are also both from the future.
  • The Future Imp can be seen on a poster in the Portal Room for the Imp class (containing Steve the Z-Mech), that says, "No Mission is Impossible!", next to a Z-Mech, a bunch of Imps, and a Imp piloting the unknown flying machine seen in the Garden Warfare 2 reveal trailer, also seen sometimes flying in the sky above the Zombie Base in the Backyard Battleground and Z-Tech Factory.
  • When they are vanquished, these Imps explode, dealing no damage.
  • Despite being inside a metal robotic spaceship, they can still be turned into goats with Goatify.
    • This is likely a developer oversight, as the Mech Gargantuar is also an Imp inside a metal robot, and yet he cannot be Goatified.
  • The Imp inside of the yellow spaceship appears to be decently smaller than the Imp class in Garden Warfare 2 and the Exploding Imp Fan, for unknown reasons.
    • It shares this trait with the Mech Gargantuar and the regular Exploding Imp.
