Menkheperre Ini IV (transliteration: ỉny) is an ancient Egyptian non-dynastic local Pharaoh during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled from Thebes over a large territory in Upper Egypt, which at the time was devided. The Nubian ruler Piye of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty ruled up to Elephantine to the south. Furthermore, Ini ruled in Upper Egypt concurrently with Nimlot of Hermopolis and Peftjauawybastet of Heracleopolis. In Lower Egypt, Tefnakhte I established the 24th Dynasty.

Ini came to rule as a local kinglet after the collapse of the 23rd Dynasty in Upper Egypt. He was the first local kinglet subdued by Piye's conquest of Egypt as the Nubian ruler expanded northward. This probably occured prior to Piye's Year 21 Gebel Barkal Victory stela. Ini may have remained in power at Thebes as a vassal ruler or was immediately replaced with a loyalist of the Kushites.
