In Greek mythology, the name Hyperochus (Ὑπέροχος) may refer to:

  • Hyperochus, a descendant of Magnes, son of Haemon, father of Tenthredon and thus grandfather of Prothous.[4]

Hypeirochus (Ὑπείροχος) is a variant of the same name which refers to:

  • Hypeirochus, a defender of Troy killed by Odysseus;[6] may or may not be the same as the son of Priam.
  • Hypeirochus, father of Itymoneus; the latter was killed by Nestor in the war between the Pylians and the Eleans.[7]
