In Greek mythology, the name Hypseus (/ˈhɪpsiəs/; Ancient Greek: Ὑψεύς "one on high", derived from hypsos "height") may refer to:

Hypseus, King of the Lapiths, son of the river god Peneus by the naiad Creusa, daughter of Gaia,[1][2] or by Philyra, a daughter of Asopus.[3] By the naiad Chlidanope[4][5] he had four daughters: Cyrene,[6][7][8] Themisto,[9] Alcaea and Astyagyia (who married Periphas).[10]
Hypseus, who fought on Phineus' side against Perseus, killed Prothoenor but was himself slain by Perseus.[11]
Hypseus, son of Asopus, who fought in the war of the Seven against Thebes.[12] He killed a number of opponents, including Antiphōs, Astyages, Linus, and Tages, and was himself slain by Capaneus.[13]
