Jean-Pascal Mignot (born 26 February 1981) is a French footballer who plays as defender for AS Saint-Étienne in the French Ligue 1.

He made the international sporting headlines on 21 October 2010 when he was the first player in the history of the UEFA Champions League to be sent-off/dismissed without ever actually taking to the field.

The incident occurred during a group stage match against AFC Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena. Mignot was warming up on the touchline during the closing moments of the game, and strongly remonstrated against a decision made by the referee, Olegario Benquerenca. The official strode across to Mignot and produced a yellow card, followed swiftly by a red card, after Mignot had continued to speak out of turn.
