USS Ono (SS-357), would have been a Balao-class submarine, the first submarine and second ship of the United States Navy of that name. This Ono took its name from the ono, a dark blue scombrid fish found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas, also known as the wahoo.

Ono (SS–357), ex-Friar, was authorized for construction at the Electric Boat Company at Groton, Connecticut, but the contract was cancelled 29 July 1944.
