The Imp is an enemy from Final Fantasy VIII. Fiendish enemies, Imps are usually found in groups or accompanied by other monsters. Even when encountered alone they are not to be trifled with.
The Imp uses powerful magic. After losing an indefinite amount of HP, it will fly and stop using Firaga, Blizzaga, and Thundaga, instead using Quake, Tornado, and Meteor. It may cast Holy upon its defeat.
Having good Spirit junctions and Shell helps, as well as spells that protect against all elements in Elem-Def-J like Life and Full-life. The player can also bounce some of the spells back with Reflect, and so summoning Carbuncle may prove useful.
Imp is a Level 4 Monster Card in Triple Triad used for playing the minigame and for turning into Wizard Stone with Quezacotl's Card Mod.
imp is "a small, mischievous devil or sprite".
It is called Garchimacera in the Japanese version, and Galkimasela in the Italian version.
