Bishop Ivo Gugić (1920–1996) was a Croatian Roman Catholic priest who served as a bishop in the diocese of Kotor in Montenegro.

He was born on March 2, 1920 in the small town of Vela Luka, which is found on the island of Korčula in the Republic of Croatia. Beginning in 1983, he began serving the Church and the people of Montenegro as a bishop in the diocese of Kotor. In 1996, he ended thirteen years of service as a bishop. (He was succeeded by bishop Ilija Janjić.) However, he continued to work with the Montenegrin government through the committee for the protection of minority and ethnic group rights. He was murdered in the same year in which he retired as a bishop; he died on June 3, 1996 in Kotor.
