Full Metal Panic! (フルメタル·パニック! Furumetaru Panikku!, often abbreviated to FMP!) is a series of light novels written by Shoji Gatoh and illustrated by Shiki Douji. The series follows Sousuke Sagara, a member of the covert anti-terrorist private military organization known as Mithril, tasked with protecting Kaname Chidori, a hot-headed Japanese high school girl.

Individual chapters are published on Monthly Dragon Magazine, followed by a paperback compilation released by Fujimi Shobo's Fujimi Fantasia Bunko. The novels are split between stories focusing on Sousuke's mission as a soldier of Mithril and comedic side stories centered on his life at Jindai High School.

The series has been adapted into different media; including three anime television series: Full Metal Panic! by Gonzo in 2002, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid, and Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory by Kyoto Animation in 2003 and 2005 respectively. An OVA was also released in 2006; and five different manga series.
