Walid ibn Utbah (died 624) was the son of Utba ibn Rabi'ah and brother of Abu Hudhayfa ibn Utbah and Hind bint Utbah. Just like his father, Walid was against Muhammad and his religion Islam.

He was a fierce Meccan warrior who was killed by Ali (Ali ibn Abi Taleb) in the traditional 3 champions' combat duel on the day of the Battle of Badr before the full battle began. Walid, his father and uncle were the three champions of the Meccan army in duel against Hamza ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, Ali, and Ubaydah ibn al-Harith. In the combat duel, Walid was killed by Ali, Walid's father was killed by Hamza, and then his uncle Shaibah was killed by Ubaydah.
