Ukita Naoie (宇喜多 直家?, 1529 – February 1, 1582) was a Japanese daimyo of the Sengoku period. He was born in Bizen Province, to Ukita Okiie, a local samurai leader. After the assassination of Naoie's grandfather Yoshiie in 1534, he was left homeless along with his father, but both were soon taken in by Urakami Munekage, the lord of Tenjinzan Castle. Naoie succeeded to family headship in 1536, after his father's death.
Mimura Iechika, a rival warlord, was murdered on Naoie's orders.
