Ajige (Manchu: Ajige.png; 28 August 1605 – 28 November 1651) was a Manchu prince and military general of the early Qing dynasty. He was born in the Aisin Gioro clan as the 12th son of Nurhaci, the khan of the Later Jin dynasty (the precursor of the Qing dynasty).

Ajige was conferred the title "Prince Wuying of the Second Rank" (武英郡王) in 1636, before being promoted to "Prince Ying of the First Rank" in 1644. He was involved in the Manchu conquest of the Ming dynasty. However, after the death of Dorgon, Ajige attempted to seize the position of Prince-Regent (previously held by Dorgon), but was subsequently discovered and placed under arrest. He was forced to commit suicide by the Shunzhi Emperor in 1651.
