Tutu is a god in ancient Mesopotamian religion. He was the tutelary god of Borsippa, near Babylon, during the reign of Hammurabi, but was later superseded by Nabu.

In the Enuma Elish it says of Tutu that he "devises the spell by which the gods may be at rest" and that "he is supreme among the assembly of the gods and no one among them is his equal". Another version states that Tutu "silences weeping and gives joy to the sad and ill at heart".
