Archidamus V (Ancient Greek: Ἀρχίδαμος Ε΄) was the 27th of the Kings of Sparta of the Eurypontid line, reigning in 228–227 BC.

He was the son of Eudamidas II and Agesistrata and through him the grandson of Archidamus IV, after whom he was named.

After his brother Agis IV was murdered in 241 BC, he fled to Messenia. In 228 (or 227) he was ordered back to Sparta by King Cleomenes III of the Agiad line, who had no counterpart on the throne by then, after the death of Eudamidas III, the son of Agis IV. He was assassinated shortly afterwards. Polybius claims that he was killed by Cleomenes.
