Lucjan Antoni Brychczy (otherwise known as Kici; born 13 June 1934) was a Polish football player who is most notable for winning four top-tier titles with Legia Warsaw, but was also a keen archer.

In football, he represented ŁTS Łabędy Gliwice and Piast Gliwice. He transferred to Warsaw for the 1954 season due to military commitments, where he remained until the end of his playing career not just as a player, but also as a coach.

He won four titles with Warsaw, in 1955, 1956, 1969 and 1970 as well as four Polish Cups, in 1955, 1956, 1964 and 1966. He scored 182 goals in a career which lasted 19 seasons, both of which remain club records to this day. His Legia career also included a foray into the semi-finals of the European Cup.

It is said that Real Madrid was interested in securing his services but during that time it was impossible to leave the country due to the restrictions of the communist regime.

Brychczy was awarded the Officer's Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta.
