Sebastián Pinto Perurena (born 5 February 1986) is a Chilean footballer who currently plays for Bursaspor. He was signed on a free transfer in December 2011 from O'Higgins, after scoring 13 goals in the 2011 Clausura championship. Pinto goes by the nickname "El Tanque" (The tank). He is the son of the journalist and television presenter Carlos Pinto.

His debut on Chilean national team was on 2006 in an unofficial friendly against the Aragon official football team. He returned later in 2011, in a friendly against Paraguay where he scored a hat-trick (one goal on a penalty shot).

Argentine Primera club Godoy Cruz signed Pinto to a 1-year contract, with an option to extend if Godoy Cruz manage to avoid relegation at the end of the 2009 Clausura.
