Narciso Horácio Doval (4 January 1944 - 12 October 1991) was an Argentine football player.

El Loco Doval was born in Buenos Aires. Playing in the hole, as a winger or as a forward, Doval was skillful, had a good technical ability, and could both score and create very opportunities for a centre forward. His style of playing quickly made him an idol in every club he played for. He scored 95 goals in 263 matches for Flamengo, and 68 goals in 142 matches for Fluminense. Zico said that he was one of the best partner in the attack. Doval also participated in Garrincha's farewell match at the Maracanã Stadium in 1973. In 1980, he played a single season with the Cleveland Cobras and New York United in the American Soccer League. He was traded from Cleveland in mid-season for American-born star Joey Fink.

In 1991 Doval went to the hotel that Flamengo's team were. The club had a game against another Argentine club. After the game, Narciso Doval was celebrating the Flamengo's victory in a discothèque in Buenos Aires, when he suffered a fatal heart attack, at the age of 47.
