Agbarjin (Agvarjin) or Akbarjin was the khagan claimant of the Northern yuan dynasty in Mongolia. He was the youngest brother of Tayisung Khan Toghtoa Bukha.

Tayisung Khan appointed Agbarjin jinong over his ulus i in 1433. When Emperor Toghtoa Bukha attempted to eliminate Esen taishi's influence at the court, the oirats offered Agbarjin the throne of khaganship for his betrayal. Even though, the latter's son, Qara-qurtag Duuren taiji, persuaded his father not to accept this offer, the oirats and Agbarjin attacked and defeated the Khagan, forcing him to flee westwards. Tayisung Khagan Toghtoa Bukha was killed by his former father-in-law Tsabdan whose daughter Altaghana had been banished from the ordo (palace).

The oirats didn't trust him who had betrayed his own eldest brother. Soon after the death of the Emperor, Agbarjin was invited Esen to a banquet. When the former and his entourages arrived, Esen and the Oirat leaders murdered all Borjigin males in his entourage except Qara-qurtag who fled and was murdered in Moghulistan or Central Siberia. Agbarjin's death paved the way for Esen's enthronement in 1454.
