Marinette Pichon (born November 26, 1975) is a French football (soccer) player.

She started her career at Saint-Memmie Olympique, then signed on to the Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA), the American professional league. She played for the Philadelphia Charge during their 2002 and 2003 seasons, in 2002 ranking second in the league in goals scored and winning the Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year awards. In 2003, she tied for the lead in goals scored and led the league in goals per game.

After the WUSA disbanded in 2003, she returned to France, where she now plays for Juvisy FCF. She was the leading domestic scorer in the 2000/01, 2001/02, 2004/05, and 2005/06 seasons. She also played for the New Jersey Wildcats in the American W-League during their 2004 season, leading the league that year in both goals scored and total points despite playing in only ten matches.

She played for the French national team from 1994 until 2006, announcing her retirement at the age of 31 following France's elimination from World Cup qualifying. During her career, she scored 82 goals in 112 international matches. She played for France at the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup.
