Jóska Sobri or Jóska Zsubri (1810, Erdőd major (Vas county) - February 17, 1837, Lápafő), born as József Pap,[1] was a famous bandit who became a legendary outlaw in Transdanubia, Kingdom of Hungary. Fifty years after his death people still spoke of his passing and some thought he was still alive[citation needed].

Sobri, like Sándor Rózsa, is one of the most famous Hungarian betyárs (bandits).
