Neferkare Peftjauawybastet (transliteration: pf-ṯꜣw-Ꜥwy-bꜣstt, meaning: "His Breath (of Life) is in the Hands of Bast") is an ancient Egyptian non-dynastic local Pharaoh during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled from Heracleopolis over a large territory that included the Faiyum Oasis. Peftjauawybastet was an Upper Egyptian contemporary of the Nubian ruler Piye of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty, as well as Nimlot of Hermopolis and Ini IV of Thebes. In Lower Egypt, Tefnakhte I established the 24th Dynasty.

Peftjauawybastet came to rule as a local kinglet after the collapse of the 23rd Dynasty in Upper Egypt. He was later subdued by Piye's conquest of Egypt as the Nubian ruler expanded northward. Peftjauawybastet appears on Piye's Year 21 Gebel Barkal Victory Stela. Peftjauawybastet remained in power at Heracleopolis as a vassal ruler.
