Seven ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Victor:
- HMS Victor (1777) was a 10-gun brig-sloop purchased in 1777. She foundered in 1780.
- HMS Victor (1779) was the 14-gun American privateer sloop Hunter that the Royal Navy captured in Penobscot Bay in 1779; she disappeared with all hands in the Great Hurricane of San Domingo on 5 October 1780.
- HMS Victor (1798) was an 18-gun sloop launched in 1798 and paid off to be sold in 1808. Because Victor served in the navy's Egyptian campaign (8 March to 2 September 1801), her officers and crew qualified for the clasp "Egypt" to the Naval General Service Medal, which the Admiralty issued in 1847 to all surviving claimants.
- HMS Victor (1808) was an 18-gun brig-sloop, formerly the privateer Revenant of Robert Surcouf, and French corvette Iéna. She was captured in 1808, recaptured by the French in 1809, retaken by the British in 1810 and sold.
- HMS Victor (1814) was an 18-gun Cruizer-class brig-sloop launched in 1814. She foundered in 1842.
- HMS Victor (1855) was a wooden screw gunvessel launched in 1855. She was sold in 1863 as the civilian Scylla; the Confederate Navy repurchased her as CSS Rappahannock.
- HMS Victor (1913) was an Acasta-class destroyer launched in 1913 and sold in 1923.
