Little Miss Dangerous is the ninth studio album by American hard rock guitarist Ted Nugent, released in 1986, the third on Atlantic Records.

The single "Little Miss Dangerous" was Ted Nugent's most successful US-single at the time. This is mostly because the track was featured in an episode of the same name of the American television series Miami Vice. The track "Angry Young Man" was also used in an episode of Miami Vice entitled "Definitely Miami", in which Nugent guest-starred as a pimp/drug dealer and was killed in a shoot-out with Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson).

A promotional video clip was produced for the song "Little Miss Dangerous'".
