Otto Gruppe (18 July 1851, Berlin – 27 November 1921, Berlin) was a German mythographer, remembered for his "Griechische Mythologie und Religion-Geschichte" (1906), which summed up the 19th century reading of Greek mythology through surviving texts. He was also the author of a "Geschichte der Klassischen Mythologie und Religionsgeschichte während des Mittelalters in Abendland und während der Neuzeit", a "history of classical mythology and religious history in medieval western Europe and in modern times".

Otto Gruppe was the son of the philosopher, scholar-poet and philologist Otto Friedrich Gruppe (1804–1876).
