Paramecia are different from Logia and Zoan in the regard that they don't "transform", in the sense of elemental and animal powers. Instead, Paramecia possess a much great variety of powers, be it generating substances, affecting things around them, or having their own body modified. Because of that, they are further divided into subcategories.
Paramecias are widely known as having the most variation of powers amongst the other classifications, granting powers which may be deemed as something out of Fairy tales. Such powers trascend normal limits and have such variation, that people think the impossible becomes possible.
Users of these fruits don't have to necessarily rely on their body strength or skill, but, more on their creativity and attitude to experiment with their own powers. Even so, some may take years while using a sole ability of their power before discovering any extension of it. However, this possibility of growing a lot may also be dependant on what kind of power they possess. Therefore, even "weak" individuals can become much more inclined to battles and develop themselves from there.
Some of these Paramecias belong to the strongest characters around, evidencing just how much of a boost may be gained.
As stated, an user's growth may also be dependant on the kind of power they receive, meaning that some powers may be regarded as "useless". Though, in some cases, this is because the user is not used to employing it and just needs time. This happened with Parker who had no use to his energy-absorption in his chilhood, at first, and only began to make proper use of it a year after consumption.
Similarly, some abilities may actually affect a prexisting capability of the user.
Due to the limitation in some fruit's usage, it may be very easy to analyze the full ability set of a Paramecia User, making it easier to engage them should one take their time to observe from a distance. This happens, as it was stated, because many powers tend to get limited by the creativity of their users.
Some fruits also add conditions, such as some sort of activation method or requirement to do so. Kettle must use his hands to trigger his power. Regin can only use his Ishi Ishi no Mi should the environment around him have any stone and Tabart can accelerate a plant's growth, instead of creating them.
AwakeningEditLike all Devil Fruit types, ever rarily, Paramecias have the capability of becoming "Awakened", attaining a whole new stage of abilities. As put into words by many people, it makes them seem "no more like a mere Paramecia". Yan can extend his paper-making ability, through awakening the Kami Kami no Mi, and thus become capable of shifting objects and people into paper through touch. Similarly, Gilbert D. Bertram can turn anything and anyone into a towel through his Muko Muko no Mi. Despite the implications that this will rend all of Paramecias' awakening to be the same, as in, grow to affect their surrounds, this is not true.

Paramecias are the most common type amongst the three groups, even for something as rare as a Devil Fruit. Due to their vast capabilities, they possess many subcategories and classifications, though, they are the least studied amongst Scientists.
Howsoever, Paramecias are divided into two large groups, so far: The powers based on a characteristic, such as stacking, shapeshifting and devouring; and the powers based on an object, like paper and keys.
How these powers manifest is another prominent trait. They can affect the user's surrounds (as seen with Lockhart Phantasma, Regin and Daddy N. Static), alter the user's physical state (like with Gilbert D. Bertram and Thatch Vincent) or even both of these things (shown with Zahara Annabeth). The way to activate a Paramecia greatly varies as well. Powers like the Hana Hana no Mi, Seki Seki no Mi and the Ori Ori no Mi need the users' direct will, whereas powers such as the Muko Muko no Mi and the Seri Seri no Mi are active, seemingly, all the time. Some of these also use certain poses or hand gestures to have their powers triggered.
With their versatility, a lot of Paramecias have a variety of uses, even outside of combat. The Saka Saka no Mi enables its user to perform a much greater circus perfomance and the Koun Koun no Mi allows for the usage of someone's luck, while the Hana Hana no Mi's ability also allows for a myriad of tasks, such as spying and aiding people with extra manpower. One of the biggest examples ought to be the Tsumu Tsumu no Mi, which lets Hazen Yosef stack properties of any object, doing so mainly to reinforce his medicines.
Due to their ability to produce and control certain substances, some Paramecias are oftenly confused with Logia. Prime examples are Veno, Qasarhog Yanbaal, Pierrot, Thatch Vincent, who all generate their own substance. Similarly, Regin is more than often mistaken for an earth logia. It should be indeed noted that, while these users may control and shape their elements as they see fit, they may either lack incredible destructive properties and will lack the ability to shift their body into intangibility.
- Coincidentially, Nico Robin and Draco D. Damon, who held the same power at one point, are both the sixth Paramecia users to debut in their respective eras.
- Paramecia has got more users than any other Devil Fruit type.
- In the wiki's continuity, the Paramecia were the first fruit shown to be capable of "Awakening".
- Amongst them, the Kami Kami no Mi was the first one to show this ability.
- Although Daddy N. Static and Ward Daemon are truly one and the same, he has been introduced with different abilities as means to fool those around him.
