Louis Fuzelier (1672 or 1674 – 19 September 1752) was a French dramatic author.

Fuzelier was born and died in Paris. He wrote more than 200 plays for the théâtres de la foire (theatres of the fair), alone or in collaboration with Alain-Rene Lesage, Alexis Piron or d'Orneval.

Fuzelier wrote the libretto les Indes galantes, an opéra-ballet with music by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Fuzelier also wrote some works for the Comédie Française and was one of the principal editors of the Mercure de France, from 1721 to 1744.
