Parademons are an evil race of aliens from Apokolips that serve as shocktroopers to Darkseid in the Superman media and other DC franchise.
They maintain their master's rule throughout Apokolips and usually accompany him. The Parademons can fly and carry large weapons. Although they are from Apokolips, they can be defeated by humans in combat. They later appeared in the Salvation Run.
They also are shown to not be immune to Darkseid's Omega Beams as shown in one instance.
The Parademons have razor-sharp claws and wings to allow them to fly. Despite having heightened strength, they can be taken down by Batman and Dan Turpin.
- In the Superfriends, they were named Paradrones due to censors not allowing the word demon.
- Despite their home world being Apokolips, they are not New Gods.
- They appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the bad future.
