V is the fifth album by the American doom metal band Saint Vitus, which was released in 1990. Its title is a reference to the Roman numeral five, not the letter "V" from the English alphabet. This album was also the band's first release not on SST Records and the last studio album to feature singer Scott "Wino" Weinrich (until 2012's Lillie: F-65).

In 2004, Southern Lord Records (SUNN32) re-released this album on CD and LP. The reissue CD contains bonus live footage from The Palm Springs Community Center on May 16, 1986.
