Carnie Imp is an Imp zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2 encountered in the Backyard Big Top Thymed Events. They are often launched from Carnie Cannons. Its helmet allows it to absorb slightly more damage than a Buckethead Zombie.
Often launched from carnie cannons.
At the same time, though, you wouldn't want to bet your life on these guys only coming out of cannons.
Carnie Imp absorbs 1490 damage per shot and its appearance changes at 433, 866 (when its helmet disappears), 1395 (when its arm falls off) before dying at 1490 damage per shot.
This Imp is one of the strongest Imps due to having armor. Try to stall him with defensives to take time defeating him, as well as slowing plants. Magnet-shrooms are viable to take down this Imp, as they can remove his helmet.
