The Imp Staff summons a flying Imp to fight for the player. It does more damage than the Hornet Staff Hornets. The Imp shoots fireballs rapidly, capable of piercing multiple enemies and inflicting the On Fire debuff.

Like most fire-based attacks the Imps' fireballs are put out by water, making them completely useless at fighting underwater enemies. Unfortunately, the Imps seem to be completely unaware of this, and will continuously attempt to attack these enemies anyway.
