HMS Waterloo was an 80-gun third rate ship of the line, launched on 16 October 1818 at Portsmouth. She was designed by Henry Peake, and was the only ship built to her draught. She had originally been ordered as HMS Talavera, but was renamed on the stocks after the Battle of Waterloo.

In 1824 Waterloo was renamed HMS Bellerophon. She was placed on harbour service in 1848, and was sold in 1892.
