Wasashatta, also spelled Wasašatta, was a king of the Hurrian kingdom of Hanigalbat ca. the early thirteenth century BC.

Like his father Shattuara, Wasashatta was an Assyrian vassal. He revolted against his master Adad-nirari I (ca. 1295-1263 BC (short chronology)) and sought in vain help from the Hittites. The Assyrians crushed his revolt and devastated Hanigalbat. The royal family was captured and brought to Assur and Wasashatta was never heard of again.
