Hryhory Loboda (Romanian: Grigore Lobodă; Ukrainian: Григорій Лобода, Hryhoriy Loboda; Polish: Grzegorz Łoboda) (born in the Kiev region — died May 1596), was a Kosh Otaman of the Zaporizhian Host (1593–6, with interruptions) of Romanian descent. In 1594 and 1595 he and Severyn Nalyvaiko took part in the anti-Turkish campaign in Moldavia as allies of Rudolf II. During the Cossack rebellion of 1596, Loboda and Nalyvaiko raided the Kijów Voivodeship neighboring territory which is now Belarus. Loboda was assassinated by Nalyvaiko's supporters during the Battle of Solonytsia, under suspicion of attempting to come to terms with Stanisław Żółkiewski, crown hetman of the Poles.
