Hryhory Loboda (Ukrainian: Григорій Лобода; Polish: Grzegorz Łoboda) (d. May 1596), was a Hetman of the Ukrainian Kozaks from 1593–6, with periodic interruptions.

In the years 1594 and 1595 he and Severyn Nalyvaiko fought against Turkey in Moldavia. During the 1596 Kozak rebellion, the two raided the Kyiv voivodeship and Belarus. He was assassinated by Nalyvaiko's supporters during the Battle of Solonytsia because he made attempts to come to terms with the Poles.
