''Full Metal Panic!'' originally debuted as a series of LightNovels in Japan, books with interspersed illustrations. The series proved so popular that it was adapted first as a serialized manga in ''Newtype'' magazine, and later as an anime by Gonzo Animation. Two more series, ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'' (2003), and ''Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid'' (2005) were produced by Kyoto Animation (Fumoffu was actually the first anime that [[Creator/KyotoAnimation KyoAni]] did on its own) and were directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto with Shoji Gatoh and Fumihiko Shimo both serving as series composers and Osamu Horiuchi serving as character designer and chief animation director. While the original and ''Second Raid'' are both more serious action stories, ''Fumoffu'' is much LighterAndSofter.

* BridgeBunny: When first meeting Tessa, Kaname (trying to be GenreSavvy) assumes she couldn't possibly be the captain of the De Danaan and must be one of these instead. Tessa plays along, just to mess with her.

* BondOneLiner: One line of Sousuke's becomes this in the English dub. When asked "Who are you?!" during his infiltration of the enemy base during the school trip, his answer in Japanese is simply, "The garbage man," but in the dub it becomes, "I take out the garbage."

** Tessa as well. She seems like comic relief with her [[{{Dojikko}} clumsiness]], but when its [[LetsGetDangerous time to get serious]], she can prove to be quite a formidable opponent as well, such as when Gauron tries to take over the Tuatha De Danann.

** Mardukas is a Creator/MontyPython fan, as mentioned in the CoolAndUnusualPunishment entry; since they couldn't use these references in the anime, they settle for a more subtle ShoutOut when, in a parody of the ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' shower scene, the attacker wields a banana.
** In the English dub, whole quotes from [[Creator/RLeeErmey a certain]] DrillSergeantNasty from ''Full Metal Jacket'' are used for the Rugby team's TrainingFromHell. Even without that, near the end of their training, the Rugby team members started talking extremely... affectionately to Rugby balls that they were cleaning.
** In a later episode in which Shinji goes into [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed SEED mode]].
** In the first episode, the teacher searches Kaname's schoolbag and sees a copy of ''Literature/SoLongAndThanksForAllTheFish''.
** The OAV that comes after The Second Raid features an AffectionateParody mashup of ''Anime/FutureBoyConan'' and ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' called ''Future Detective Boy Conan'', depicting a famous scene from ''Future Boy Conan'' with the addition of glasses and a bow tie. The video box cover is also seen, and is a parody of the cover of ''Future Boy Conan''óJimsy from ''Future Boy Conan'' is given the face of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'''s Mouri Kogoro.
** Two major shout-outs to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' in ''Always Stand By Me (Part 2)'': [[spoiler: Sophia/Chidori wearing a Rei-style plugsuit, and Al ''stopping an incoming nuke'' with an AT Field.]]
** Captain Sailor of the U.S.S ''Pasadena'' is shown [[Literature/TheCaineMutiny shaking three ball bearings.]] And one of his superior officers refers to him as [[Literature/MobyDick Ahab.]]
** The Pacific Chrysalis events has several shout-outs to Film/DieHard.
** And the submarine battle during those same Pacific Chrysalis events are very reminiscent of ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'', including Mardukas being a British version of Marko Ramius.
** One of the Yakuza in episode 10 mentions Creator/OsamuTezuka's manga, ''Series/AmbassadorMagma'', when Kaname says she summons Bonta-kun by blowing her whistle three times. The picture of Magma's spaceship and yakuza's voice were censored due to "copyright reasons."
** In episode 6, Kaname compares Sousuke and Kurz to ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'', and their situation to the TropeNamer for BolivianArmyEnding.
** Reading the novels, it becomes apparent that Gatoh is a Creator/TomClancy fan: Kalinin's wife dies in the same manner as Marko Ramius' wife, prompting his defection; the three USN submarines that appear in FMP also made appearances in Clancy's books.
** Bonta-kun is an obvious ShoutOut to Gonta-kun, the mascot of the classic children's educational show [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dekirukana Dekirukana]].
** The {{Filler}} episode "Is Narashino Burning?" (episode 14 of the first anime) has a lot of ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' references. The head of the [[OpposingSportsTeam Nerima Red Dragons]] is a nod to [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Char Aznable]]. He loves the color red, has [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack swept-back blond hair]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam sunglasses]], [[MemeticMutation flirts with younger women]], and (at the end of the episode) starts to deliver Char's famous "mistakes of youth" speech. Chidori lampshades all this by asking "Is that supposed to be cosplay?" when she first meets him. When Sousuke shows up in an AS, we're told it's moving three times faster than a normal AS, which was supposedly an attribute of Char's AceCustom Zaku II. Finally, the Red Dragons's [[CombinationAttack Red Stream Attack]] is a reference to the Jet Stream Attack used by the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Black Tri-Stars]] in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', complete with three machines charging an enemy in a straight line and one jumping over its partners (as well as the hero using one of the enemy machines as a springboard, as Amuro did against the Tri-Stars).
*** Furthermore, the box for the Arm Slave model kit in this episode resembles a combination of the boxes for Bandai's EX Model[[note]]A large blue stripe surrounded on both sides by thin white stripes[[/note]] and High Grade Universal Century[[note]]Horizontal layout, illustration of the mecha on the left side[[/note]] lines. It's even said to be made by Banpresto, a division of Bandai (though one that usually makes video games like ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'').
** In an episode of The Second Raid, Kaname is watching a TV show that appears to be SpiderMan [[RecycledInSpace IN FEUDAL JAPAN!]]
** Upon discovering that Mithril will not be able to install him into another AS, Al requests to instead be installed into a car - [[Series/KnightRider preferably a Trans Am]].

* YoungEntrepreneur: Sōsuke tries to patent and sell his Bonta-Kun combat suit entirely for the technological advantage it provides, without realizing its outward appearance was preventing sales. He succeeded in selling a few of them to the FBI, the Miami police and a local Yakuza gang.
** The fact that Sousuke had enough money and contacts to do that implies that he's probably been moonlighting in the weapons business for a while.
