FLIP: Put this card face-up in your opponent's Deck and shuffle it. When your opponent draws this card, it is Special Summoned to their side of the field in face-up Defense Position, and inflicts 1000 damage to them. Then, while this card is face-up on the field, all monsters your opponent controls become Insect-Type monsters.

Are there any other cards that disrupt the draw?
This card does not work for me when it is attacked. There is no effect blockers active and parasite paracide flips over then goes straight to my graveyard instead of my opponents deck.

well then shouldnt it say 'flip summon' and not 'flip'? I thought flip effects activated when they went to the graveyard

"If "Parasite Paracide" is flipped and destroyed by battle, the effect activates, but the effect is not applied. (It is not shuffled into your opponent's Deck.)"

THIS and only THIS is the official ruling!

Play Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" then
I dueled an Obelisk Blue girl in the GX world with the Burning Damage deck who used this card on me, but the effect didn't activate when I drew it. I think it's because I used Magical Mallet to re-shuffle my deck
Combine Parasite Paracide with Eradicating Erisol.
This card is Bugged (No pun intended), if it is drawn using Bandit Keith's "Switcharoo" the effect doesn't trigger.

Card effects only work with the mechanics of the actual yugioh card game. Since skills were never a part of the actual yugioh card game, card effects would never work with skills to begin with.
its weird since hane hane activates if flipped even if it is destroyed but even the anime shows in duel monsters when joey fought against mako tsunami and left parasite paracide in his deck he was confused why the effect didnt activate and mako tsunami explained it only activates if it survives.

Lemme explain something
Hane Hanes effect dont give a fck about it being destroyed while Parasite do so.

You cant put a destroyed monster into your opp's deck
I agree that the card is bugged. As someone said, other flip cards, like Hane-Hane, always have their effect applied before been destroyed. The order is always this: attack, flip, effect activation, destruction. This order is applied to all the other flip effect monsters, except for Parasite Paracide. For me, the description make it clear that, if the card is flipped, it is sent to the oponent's hand. The destruction should resolve after the effect activation, exactly like other cards. In older Yugioh games, the effect of this card always applied even if the card should be destroyed.

As time continued to go forward, Competition became stronger. Players started to be more precise on the activation of the cards.

In response, Konami began making better detail activation.

They even said things such as:
(Before Damage Step)
(Apply Damage Step Normally)

They did this in order to add more strategy to the game.

I.E Cards missing activation timing!

2) (Chains Links) Resolve Backwards

Attack > Flip > Flip Effect Activation
Put in opponents Deck > Damage Step

^^ The above is how it actives.
However, It isn't how it resolves.

CL 1: Damage Step
CL 2: Put in opponents deck

CL 1 has it going to grave.
However, the chain isn't over yet.
CL 2 has it going to your opponents deck.

Thus, You see how it works!

3) The way Charmers works:

Attack > Flip > Flip Effect Activation > Damage Step

CL 1: Damage Step
CL 2: take monster while on the field

CL 1 has it going to grave.
The chain isn't over yet.
CL 2 has it taking a monster.
Your monster is taken.

A new chain is than made as the Charmer leaves the field!

CL 1: Gives back control of monster.
Charmer says "While on field".

Thus, the flip-flop!

If indicate under "flip:" it shld be activate once flip no matter when and how unless negated. If not is be like some card that say "when this card is flip summoned"
Weevil no more drops it at level 16.
Why does the effect not activate when this card is drawn with last gamble/switcheroo

apparently if it's drawn through a skill. it doesn't activate. according to GunsBlazingLol
please fix the bug of this, effect not fire
Here is something worth mentioning: if your opponents side of the field is full and he/she/apache helicopter draws the card, its effect does not trigger! So the cards effect only triggers whenever there is a free monster spot on their side of the field.
So how do we get a hold of more than one parasite? or we can't anymore
