FUJIWARA no Morifusa (year of birth and death unknown) was a retainer of the Imperial Court and a poet in the late Heian period.

He is known for his poetry, and one poem that he wrote when he participated in a poem match held by Kanpaku (chief adviser to the Emperor) FUJIWARA no Moromichi is included in the collection "Kinyo Wakashu" (Kinyo Collection of Japanese poems). Details of his birth and life in his later years are unknown.
