Four ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Resistance. A fifth was planned but never built:

  • HMS Resistance was a 44-gun fifth rate launched in 1782 and blown up in 1798.
  • HMS Resistance was a 36-gun fifth rate launched in 1801 and wrecked in 1803.
  • HMS Resistance was a 38-gun fifth rate launched in 1805. She was converted into a troopship in 1842 and was broken up in 1858.
  • HMS Resistance was a Defence-class ironclad launched in 1861. She was used as a target ship from 1885, and was sold in 1898 but foundered in 1899. She was raised and scrapped in 1900.
  • HMS Resistance was to have been a Revenge-class battleship. She was ordered in 1914, but was cancelled later that year.
