Neutron Imp is a galactic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. He costs 4 to play, and has 4/4. He does not have any traits, and his ability makes him do a bonus attack every time the zombie hero plays an environment card.
He is based on an unidentified flying object, a term used to describe any object in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon, and some elements of a stereotypical alien, as seen by his antenna.
His name is a combination of "neutron," referring to an Imp's size (as both a neutron and an Imp are small), and "Imp," the zombie he is based on.
His description references an Imp's short stature, as well as the fact he is named after a neutron, a subatomic particle.
- Class: Brainy
- Tribes: Science Imp Zombie

- Ability: When you play an Environment, this does a Bonus Attack.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Super-Rare
He's not small, he's just very compact.
This zombie can generally be treated as Re-Peat Moss, but as a zombie that benefits from environments instead of tricks. With this ability, you want to bring as many environments as possible to make him do bonus attacks easily. Using cheap environments such as Transformation Station or Graveyard is effective, while environments such as Area 22 or Meteor Z can benefit his ability greatly if played on his lane. Laser Base Alpha is possibly the best environment to use with this card, as playing it on Neutron Imp's lane will result in all plants (excluding ones that are shielded) in that lane being destroyed, as well as a huge amount of damage to the plant hero (unless it is blocked). However, this combo can only be achieved naturally by Super Brainz or Huge-Gigantacus.
In general, this can replace Drum Major in most decks as this has tribes that benefit the class itself instead of Drum Major that benefits from other classes. His science tribe means he can get more strength every time he attacks with Zombot Drone Engineer on the field, while playing Gadget Scientist is essentially the same as playing an environment. His Imp tribe also means that Super Brainz and Huge-Gigantacus can pair him with Toxic Waste Imp and Imp Commander.
You will want to destroy this zombie as quickly as possible as the zombie hero can play a lot of environments which not only benefits the zombie in the environment but also allows this to do a bonus attack. Since his stats are like Drum Major, Shamrocket or Doom-Shroom can destroy this very easily. You can also prevent him from doing bonus attacks with Wing-Nut. It is also best to get rid of any Toxic Waste Imps and Imp Commanders if you are fighting against Super Brainz or Huge-Gigantacus. If necessary, you can also play Brainana to prevent any environments from being played during the zombie trick phase, denying Bonus Attacks, but watch out for Gentleman Zombies in this case.
- If one looks closely on the title screen, the UFO is seen with a crack and a bandage.
- If one looks very closely at Area 22, one can see a Neutron Imp in the "cockpit."
