Gye of Baekje (died 346, r. 344–346) was the twelfth king of Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.

He was the eldest son of the 10th king Bunseo, who was assassinated. The Samguk Sagi records that Biryu (younger brother of the 7th king Saban) became king because of Gye's young age. Gye became king upon Biryu's death, and is said to have been courageous and skilled in archery and horseriding.

His rule indicated the continued the rivalry between two royal lines, that of the 5th king Chogo and that of the 8th king Goi, from whom Gye descended. The Goi line ended with Gye's 2-year reign, as he was succeeded by Biryu's son Geunchogo.
