Guy de Warwick ou Gui de Warewic est le héros d'un roman de chevalerie anglais du XIIIè siècle.

Le coeur du roman est l'amour de Guy pour lady Felice, de plus haute naissance. Pour l'épouser il doit donc faire montre de courage dans des aventures chevaleresques. Chevalier errant il affronte dragons et géants, et autres animaux fantastiques, ainsi un sanglier semblable à ceux des mythologies grecque ou galloise. Il revient de ses épreuves pour épouser Felice mais bientôt souhaite repartir pour la Terre Sainte. Il en revient et se transforme en ermite sur les bords de la rivière Avon, dans une caverne à Guys Cliffe.
