Dryptosauroides is the name given to a genus of dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous. It was a large theropod possibly belonging to the abelisauridae. Its fossils, consisting of a few vertebrae, were found in India; however, these remains are not distinguishable from other similar fossils. As a result, Dryptosauroides remains a nomen dubium.

The type species, Dryptosauroides grandis, was described by Friedrich von Huene and Charles Alfred Matley in 1933.
