Anastassios "Tasos" Mitropoulos (Greek: Τάσος Μητρόπουλος) (born 23 August 1957) is a Greek politician and retired football midfielder.

Mitropoulos was born in Volos, and started his football career at local team Aris Petroupoli. In 1976 he joined Ethnikos Piraeus, where he played five seasons. In 1981 he moved on to the largest Piraeus club, Olympiakos, winning three league titles and two Greek cup titles with the team.

Mitropoulos later played two seasons for AEK, winning two league titles with them, and for Olympiacos' fierce rivals Panathinaikos, albeit only one game. He returned to Olympiakos in 1997 for a final season, retiring at almost 41. He was given the nickname "Rambo" by Olympiacos fans.

Mitropoulos was also a prominent national team player between 1978 and 1994, playing 76 matches and scoring 8 goals. He played at the 1994 World Cup.

After retiring in 1998, Mitropoulos became an assistant coach to Dusan Bajevic, Alberto Bigon, Yannis Matzourakis and Takis Lemonis in Olympiacos. As an assistant coach, he celebrated four consecutive Greek Championships in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002.

After retiring, Mitropoulos became a politician serving in the Piraeus city council. He ran for Parliament in 2004 for the New Democracy party.
