The Unsavory Imp plays a similar role to one appeared in the 2014 edition of the event who also transformed players, though randomly. This one let the players transform into the Eorzean Alliance leaders, the A Realm Reborn Minfilia, and some voidsent creatures.

The Unsavory Imp's transfigurations are the only way the players have to play as a non-playable race: Padjal (Kan-E-Senna), Garlean (Cid and Nero), and Hyur/Elezen hybrid (Hilda). However, they use Hyur emotes (except Nero, who uses Elezen's). Cid and Nero are included in the A Realm Reborn option, but they have their Stormblood attires. The same happens with Estinien, who is included in Heavensward while wearing his Stormblood armor.
