Budugen (died 233) was the territorial chief of the Xianbei tribe during the late Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. He retained his independence by sending tribute to the state of Cao Wei during the reign of Cao Pi. Following the reign of Cao Rui, Budugen allied with Kebineng to start a revolt against Cao Wei. The revolt was suppressed and Budugen was slain by Kebineng.
