G̃ / g̃ is a letter which combines the common letter G with a tilde.
The letter does not exist in many alphabets. Examples of alphabets with this letter are:
- Guarani alphabet – where the tilde marks nasalization of /g/, representing the sound /ŋ/
- Filipino alphabet – during the Spanish colonial period and up to the mid-20th century, adopting Spanish orthography for the Tagalog language
- Sumerian language – an extinct language, where it is used to transcribe the cuneiform script.
- Northern Sami orthography – g̃ appears in the Sami alphabet used by Rask in Ræsonneret lappisk sproglære in 1832
Unicode encodes g with tilde with a combining diacritical mark (U+0303 ◌̃ COMBINING TILDE), rather than a precomposed character. As such, the tilde may not align properly with some typefaces and systems. Additionally, owing to the difficulties in inputting this character, Guarani speakers often replace it with g with circumflex (ĝ) or omit the diacritic altogether.

Most Guarani speakers don't use this character, instead spelling this sound the same as a plain g.
