Durarara!! Opening Parodies (デュラララ!!OPパロ) refer to a series of parody video remixes for the opening credit movies in Durarara!! 1st anime season. Though not so much as the ending parodies, many MAD videos mimicking the movies' rendition have been posted to Nico Nico Douga (NND) since 2010.


The 1st TV anime series Durarara!! was aired from January to June in 2010 which was produced by the same staffs of the TV anime adaptation for the author's another title Baccano!. And, both of its 1st (shown below, left) and 2nd (shown below, right) opening credit movies are made in the same way to that of Baccano! which also caused a parody video remix fad on NND in before. Hence, it resemble the opening title of 2000 American film Snatch directed by Guy Ritchie as well.

The 1st opening theme song "Uragiri no Yūyake" (裏切りの夕焼け; lit. "Sunset of Betrayal") is sung by Japanese funk rock band Theatre Brook[1], and the 2nd one "Complication" (コンプリケイション) is the debut single of Japanese band ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D.[2]


Fan creations mimicking the opening credit movie began in , and it has been continually posted to NND even after the series ended. Most of parody videos in this series are made in MAD video style, and they try reproducing its characteristic rendition inserting the previous episode's highlight during the footage. On NND, both parodies for the 1st one and the 2nd one are basically tagged under the same name[3] though the latter has its own tag.[4]
