A Parademon Invasion referred to any of several wars across the Multiverse initiated by Darkseid and the forces of Apokolips: the Parademon Army. A major point of these invasions was to capture and kill Kaiyo the Trickster, this eventually led intoa goal of defeating several Supermen across the Multiverse. The wars later transformed into an effort of finding and recovering the daughter of Darkseid.
These wars were often led by Darkseid himself. However, certain times, Steppenwolf and Desaad would also play major roles. Steppenwolf and Glorious Godfrey were the only known New Gods to have led a war themselves.
- Parademon Invasion of Earth - A failed invasion against Prime Earth led by Darkseid himself. Steppenwolf and Desaad played small roles, ultimately of no consequence, however.
- Apokolips War - A failed invasion against Earth 2 led by Steppenwolf. This war of attrition lasted many years.
