Bureau 13 is a fictional top-secret government agency featured in the role-playing game (RPG) Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic which investigates and combats supernatural events. The Bureau's motto is "Protecting America from Everything".

Stalking the Night Fantastic is a Bureau 13 horror game released by Tri Tac Games in 1983.

In 1991 the Bureau 13 series won the Gamers Choice Award at Gencon for best Fantasy Game. In 2008 a new d20 Modern edition was released. The series has a definite tongue in cheek attitude that is emphasized by both the background stories and the illustrations.

A secret organization named "Bureau 13" is mentioned in the Babylon 5 episode "Spider in the Web". However, when J. Michael Straczynski heard about the game, he promised never to use the name again.[1]
