Saitō Uhyōe-Taihitsu Tatsuoki (斎藤 右兵衛・大筆 龍興 Saitō Uhyōe-Taihitsu Tatsuoki?, 1548–August 14, 1573) was a daimyo in Omi Province during the Sengoku period and the sixth generation lord of the Saitō clan. He was a son of Saitō Yoshitatsu, and a great-grandson of Saitō Dōsan. He was also a nephew of Oda Nobunaga's first wife, Nohime, herself a daughter of Saitō Dōsan.
Saitō Tatsuoki succeeded his father at the age of 19. He was, however, an incapable ruler; unlike his father and grandfather.
Tatsuoki became involved in a bitter rivalry with Akechi Mitsuhide, and lost to him decisively in 1574. He survived, but from this point on the Saitō clan were no longer a significant faction in the power struggles of the Sengoku period.
