Emperor Kōgen (孝元天皇, Kōgen-tennō) was the 8th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kōgen to be a legendary person; and the name Kōgen-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.

No certain dates can be assigned to this emperor's life or reign. The conventionally accepted names and sequence of the early emperors were not to be confirmed as "traditional" until the reign of Emperor Kammu, who was the 50th monarch of the Yamato dynasty.
