HMS Odin was a steam-powered first-class paddle frigate of the Royal Navy. She was launched in 1846 and was used in the Baltic theatre of the Crimean War.

The ship was launched on 24 July 1846, at 1,301 73/94 bm, and decommissioned in 1865. She was sold that year to Castle & Beech for breaking up. She was initially intended to carry eight 32pdr carronades on the middle deck, but this idea was later discarded and these guns were never fitted. Between 1850 and 1851 she was fitted out for an Ambassador.

The ship had six commanders during her operational lifetime. Captain Frederick Thomas Pelham took command at her commissioning at Portsmouth on 24 May 1847. He paid her off at Portsmouth and was succeeded by Commander William Saltonstall Wiseman, who took over on 1 August 1851, until October 1851. Captain Francis Scott was in command from 18 December 1852 until 3 February 1855, Captain James Willcox took over on 7 September 1855 and Captain Lord John Hay commanded Odin from 20 September 1859 until 1863.
