Cosmic Imp has low stats for 3, but makes it up for his Deadly trait and his ability of Conjuring an Imp that will also get Deadly. Offensively, only use Cosmic Imp against a strong plant and do not waste him against a weak one, as even though his stats are low, he can destroy a plant as long as he does not get destroyed before the Fight! phase, or if that plant has the Armored trait.
With Cosmic Imp's ability, you can get any Imp such as Imp Commander and Walrus Rider, or even ones like Space Cowboy. While the Deadly trait does not benefit Imp synergy directly due to Imp Commander only activating his ability when an Imp damages your opponent (who does not get affected by Deadly), it does help with troublesome plants blocking the way. However, you could also get cards like Toxic Waste Imp that already has Deadly or an Imp trick like Triplication which ignores the addition of Deadly. However, Cosmic Imp could Conjure Cakesplosion in which it can have Deadly, making it a perfect way to destroy a plant as long as the plant is not shielded.
This zombie is generally easy to destroy, as he has 1/1. However, do not be fooled if he is played on a lane with a strong plant, as he can destroy it very easily. You must also watch out for Imps that has been Conjured by him since they will also have Deadly.
Since he costs the same as Smelly Zombie but with much lower stats and without the Gravestone trait, you can use tricks like Banana Bomb or Water Balloons to destroy him. Also, do not Bounce him unless you are able to win this turn, as he can be replayed to Conjure another Imp with Deadly.
- He lacks legs. This can be seen when he activates his ability.
- He is the only Cosmic zombie whose name matches the name of its tribe.
- For some unknown reason, Cosmic Imp's pointing hand texture is found in Stupid Cupid's textures. While it is not directly on the sprite sheet, it does appear that the file holds multiple sheets of Stupid Cupid's sprites.
- He has the lowest base strength out of all Deadly zombies.
