Andronikos V Palaiologos (or Andronicus V Palaeologus) (Greek: Ανδρόνικος Ε' Παλαιολόγος) (c. 1400 – c. 1407) was co-emperor of the Byzantine Empire with his father John VII Palaiologos.

Andronikos V Palaiologos was the only known son of Emperor John VII Palaiologos and Irene Gattilusio, daughter of Francesco Gattilusio. At the time of his birth John VII was Regent of the Byzantine Empire for his uncle Manuel II Palaiologos. At an unknown date, probably after his father settled in Thessalonica, Andronikos V was proclaimed nominal co-emperor, probably by 1403/1404. He predeceased his father, dying probably in 1407.

The imperial status of both John VII and Andronikos V was purely honorary and they were not full-fledged co-emperors (although John VII had reigned as emperor in 1390 and as regent in Constantinople from 1399 to 1403).
