Mesalla Niger av Valerii, född -105 i Roma, Lazio, Italien, död -54 i Roma, Lazio, Italien. Consul of the Roman Empire in 61 BC.

Marcus Valerius Messalla Niger was praetor in the year of Cicero's consulship, 63 BC, and consul in 61. The year in which Publius Clodius profaned the mysteries of the Bona Dea, and Gnaeus Pompeius triumphed for his several victories over the Cilician pirates, Tigranes the Great and Mithridates VI of Pontus. Messalla, as consul, took an active part in the prosecution of Clodius. Messalla was censor in 55 BC.

As an orator, Messalla was thought to be respectable. In 80 BC he was engaged in collecting evidence for the defence in the cause of Sextus Roscius of Ameria. In 62 BC he solicited Cicero to undertake the defence of his kinsman, Publius Cornelius Sulla. In 54 BC he was one of the six orators whom Marcus Aemilius Scaurus retained on his trial.
