In Greek mythology, Pherusa was a Nereid sea-nymph, a daughter of Nereus and Doris. Her name means "she who carries." She, along with her sister Dynamene, were associated with the power of great ocean swells. Mentioned in Hesiod's Theogony.

Another Pherusa is counted by some authors as one of the Horae, goddess of substance and farm estates.
