Guy Delorme (May 23, 1929 - December 26, 2005) was a French actor and stuntman.
He was an expert in horse riding and fencing, both skills that made him a go-to guy for 1950s-1960s French swashbuckler productions set in The Cavalier Years, in which he pretty much always played villains, most often The Dragon, opposing the likes of Jean Marais and Gérard Barray. He worked in the teams of famous sword master and stunt coordinator Claude Carliez in such films. Along with his stunt credits, he's had small uncredited roles from the 1950s up to the late 1980s.

Tropes in his works:
- Beard of Evil: He had a dark beard, and was frequently typecast as villains.
- Death Glare: Another trademark of his villains was their Obviously Evil stare.
- The Dragon: His most important roles in 1960s swashbuckler films in a nutshell, as the main henchman of the Non-Action Big Bad that the hero will fight in a Final Battle.
- Face of a Thug: Which, again, landed him a fair share of villainous roles.
- Mook: When he wasn't The Dragon, he played this.
