Imps from Doom

The Imp is a recurring enemy type in the Doom games and debuted as a Humanoid looking Demon that can shoot Fireballs at the player as well as scratching him in close combat. In Doom 3 (2004) they return redesigned with grey skin. In Doom (2016) the Imp are much smaller than before and have a more varied arsenal of attacks. 

In Doom Eternal (2020) they look more like their counterparts in the classic Doom games but behave the same as in Doom (2016) for the most part.
