Takashi Niigaki is a Japanese composer, conductor, and orchestrator. He is best known as the collaborator of Mamoru Samuragochi, the allegedly-deaf composer who in 2014 admitted that Niigaki had in fact been the true composer behind the vast majority of his works.

Among their collaborations, Samuragochi and Niigaki worked together on two Capcom games in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with the former being credited as composer, and the latter as conductor. Niigaki has confirmed that he composed most, if not all of the music featured in both games, and that Samuragochi only served in a supervisory role. Since then, Niigaki has spent most of his career composing for other forms of media, though he did eventually return to video game composition in 2019.
