'Marcello d'Orey' de Araújo Dias (born Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 7 March 1976) is a Portuguese rugby union player. Professionally, he's a lawyer.

His position in the field is as a lock, but he has also played as number 8. He played his entire career in CDUP, where he won 2 National CUPs, in 2002/2003 and 2005/2006.

D'Orey is one of the most capped Portuguese rugby footballers in activity, with currently 61 matches and 5 tries, 25 points in aggregate, since his debut, at 10 November 1996, in a 20-31 loss to Spain.

D'Orey was selected for the squad that entered the 2007 Rugby World Cup finals. He got injured in his only presence, at the loss to New Zealand (13-108), in the first time the two teams played, missing the rest of the tournament. That would be his last game for the National Team.
