Usermaatre-Setepenamun Iuput II (transliteration: ỉw-pwt) is an ancient Egyptian non-dynastic local Pharaoh during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled from Leontopolis over a large territory in the eastern Nile Delta. Iuput II was a contemporary of Osorkon IV of the Twenty-second Dynasty at Tanis and the Nubian ruler Piye of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. In the western Nile Delta, Tefnakhte I established the 24th Dynasty.

Iuput II came to rule as a local kinglet after the desintegration of the centralized 22nd Dynasty in Lower Egypt under Shoshenq V. He was later subdued by Piye's conquest of Egypt as the Nubian ruler expanded northward. Iuput appears on Piye's Year 21 Gebel Barkal Victory Stela. Iuput subsequently remained in power at Leontopolis as a vassal ruler.
