Ahmet Fevzi Big, commonly known as Big Ahmed Fevzi Pasha (1871–1947), was the general of the Ottoman Army.

He was born in Düzce to Yakub Bey, who was a member of Big family of the Ubykhs tribe.

Although he was appointed the commander of the XX Corps in place of Ali Fuad Pasha, he refused it at the caution of Rauf Bey and Bekir Sami Bey.
