Darrin Pritchard (born 21 March 1966) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Hawthorn in the Australian Football League.

Pritchard played in 3 VFL/AFL Premierships with Hawthorn in 1988, 1989 and 1991. Recruited from Sandy Bay in Tasmania, he represented both his home and adopted states at state of origin level, skippering the former on three occasions and was named in the 1989 VFL Team of the Year. After sustaining a broken leg in 1995 he made a creditable comeback but was never quite the same player. He retired after the 1997 season having played 211 VFL/AFL games.
