The Maly Anyuy River or Maly Anyui River (Russian: Ма́лый Аню́й; maly meaning "little") is a right tributary of the Kolyma River in the Russian Far East. It flows roughly westwards, passing through western Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. Just after crossing into the Sakha Republic, it meets the Bolshoy Anyui River, merging with it into a single channel (Anyuy River proper) about 20 km before meeting the Kolyma close to its delta.

Its length is 738 kilometres (459 mi) and its basin surface 49,800 km². Among the fish found in the Maly Anyuy are different species of trout, salmon and golets (голец), as well as the peled.

Most of the basin of the Maly Anyui River and its tributaries belongs to the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug administrative region of Russia.

The El'gygytgyn Meteorite Crater is about 50 kilometres (31 mi) from its source.

The most important inhabited localities in the Maly Anyuy river valley are Aliskerovo and Bilibino, on the shores of smaller tributaries.
