Abhimanyu Mishra is a New Jersey-based American chess prodigy. On June 30, 2021, he became the smallest master ever, graduating at the age of 12 years, 4 months, and 25 days, breaking Sergey Karjakin's milestone, which had been held since 2002.

He broke the US Chess Federation mark for the smallest Expert by attaining a 2000 USCF ranking at the age of 7 years, 6 months, and 22 days, shattering Awonder Liang's mark. He then broke the US Chess mark for the smallest National Master, attaining a 2200 USCF ranking at the age of 9 years, 2 months, and 17 days, shattering Liran Zhou's mark. He set the world record for the smallest International Master, a distinction he acquired in November 2019 at the age of ten years, nine months, and twenty days, shattering Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa's record. In February 2020, FIDE gave him the title.

Mishra tied for the lead with GM Vladimir Belous at the Spring 2021 GM Norm Invitational held in Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S., in March 2021, with a score of 5.5/9 and exceeded 2400 FIDE for the foremost span on an authorized ranking list but missed to earn a GM norm. Mishra competed in the 2021 Chess World Cup but was eliminated in the first round by Baadur Jobava.
