Endō Motonobu (遠藤 基信, 1532 - December 12, 1585) was a Japanese samurai of the Sengoku period who served the Date clan. He was also known as Endō Funyūsai (不入斎). Motonobu had supposedly taken up residence at a Buddhist temple during his adult life, and from that point he managed to secure a retainer position under Nakano Munetoki. Motonobu committed suicide after the death of Date Terumune.

According to some historical records, Motonobu may have been the son of a yamabushi from Yonezawa.
