    NO, metals are metallic elements.

    noble gases are gaseous elements.

    metallic elements display metallic properties,

    and gases display properties of a gas.

    there ARE 7 elements that ARE NOT metals but display metallic properties, these are called METALLOIDS, these are elements # 5, 14, 32, 33, 51, 52, 84.

    the NOBLE GASES are all happy and stable, with 8 electrons in their valence shell.
