Salaryman Kintaro (サラリーマン金太郎 Sararīman Kintarō?) is a manga series by Hiroshi Motomiya. It has been serialized in Weekly Young Jump since 1994, but has gone through many periods of inactivity.

The manga follows Kintarō Yajima, a former Bōsōzoku leader who, as a promise to his late wife, has become a salaryman. In 2005, Kintarō went from working as a salaryman to working for a foreign bank.

In 2005, Salaryman Kintaro began appearing as an online comic and eventually returned to Young Jump.
