Khahotepre Sobekhotep VI (ancient Egyptian: sbk-ḥtp, "Sobek is Satisfied") was an Egyptian king of the Thirteenth Dynasty of Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period.

Sobekhotep VI appears in the Turin King List as successor of Sobekhotep IV. He reigned according to this document only for four years. Sobekhotep IV was perhaps his father, as he had a son called 'Sobekhotep'. Sobekhotep VI is known from a statue found at Kerma and from several scarab seals.
