Tefnakhte II (transliteration: tꜢ-f-nꜢḫt) is an ancient Egyptian local Pharaoh of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled over the western Nile Delta in Lower Egypt from Sais as a contemporary of the Nubian ruler Taharqa of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. Tefnakhte's throne name was probably either Menibre or Iribre.

Tefnakhte succeeded Ammeris the Nubian as Governor of Sais and may have held the office for a decade (695–685 BC), before declaring himself king.
