In the title compound, C10H8N6, the tetrazole and benzene rings are close to being coplanar [dihedral angle = 9.90 (16)°], but the imidazole ring is rotated 37.18 (09)° out of the benzene plane. In the crystal, molecules are connected through tetrazole–imidazole N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, giving rise to zigzag chains, which extend along .
