Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen is a fictional character in the 1965 science fiction novel Dune by Frank Herbert. He is the younger nephew and heir of the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, and is depicted as being cruel, treacherous and cunning, though not as much so as his uncle.

Feyd is portrayed by Sting in the 1984 film Dune, by Matt Keeslar in the 2000 miniseries Frank Herbert's Dune, and by Austin Butler in the 2024 film Dune: Part Two and 2023 video games Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.

Sixteen-year-old Feyd, the younger nephew and heir of Baron Harkonnen, is described as dark haired, and "round of face and with sullen eyes". He is lean and muscular in contrast to his morbidly obese uncle, and is a deadly fighter. The Baron also notes that the "full and pouting look" of Feyd's lips is "the Harkonnen genetic marker". Feyd and his elder brother Glossu Rabban are the legal sons of Baron Harkonnen's youngest half-brother, Abulurd Rabban, who had "renounced the Harkonnen name and all rights to the title when given the subdistrict governorship of Rabban-Lankiveil".

The character Feyd serves as a narrative foil to Paul Atreides, son of the Baron's enemy, Duke Leto Atreides. Ari Szporn of Comic Book Resources wrote, "Both [Paul and Feyd] are charismatic, cunning young noblemen who have received the greatest education and combat training. But where Paul displays compassion and loyalty, Feyd cares only for himself and the acquisition of power."
