Fritz Fullriede (4 January 1895 – 3 November 1969) was a German officer, reaching the rank of Generalmajor by the end of World War II.

Fullriede was born in Bremen and fought in the First World War. As a Freikorps member after the war, he fought against Polish rebels in the Silesian Uprisings. Fullriede lived in Africa from 1924 to 1934. After returning to Germany, he reenlisted. Fullriede fought in the German invasion of Poland and on the Eastern Front. He served in the Afrika Korps, the Italian Campaign, defended against the Operation Market Garden, and then returned to the Eastern Front again. The last German commander of Festung Kolberg, Fullriede received the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves in 1945.

Fullriede was taken prisoner by the Americans. He was sentenced for 12 years for various crimes and released after serving four years. He emigrated to Africa but returned to Germany before his death in Bad Oldesloe.
