The Parademon, also known as the Paralyma, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III, fought in the southern part of the Floating Continent. Parademons are very strong enemies who can Paralyze the characters with their Breath attack, and provide a decent amount of Experience points. Parademons also drop a wealth of arrows, including the strongest, the Yoichi Arrow, which is otherwise only available in Falgabard or the Invincible. The best attacks to use are Fire spells, like Fire or Fira.
[view·edit·purge]"Para-" a prefix appearing in loanwords from Greek, most often attached to verbs and verbal derivatives with the meanings "at or to one side of, beside, side by side" (parabola; paragraph; parallel; paralysis), or "beyond, past, by" (paradox; paragogue). By extension "para-" came to designate objects or activities auxiliary to or derivative of that denoted by the base word, and hence abnormal or defective.
