Eiji Aonuma is a video game designer for Nintendo. He is best known for his work on The Legend of Zelda series, as both director and producer.

After working on a few projects for Nintendo R&D2, the first game he directed was titled Marvelous: Mōhitotsu no Takarajima for the Super Famicom, which was influenced by The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This game got Shigeru Miyamoto to contact Eiji and make him assistant director on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. He also acted as co-director on Majora's Mask and sole director on The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. Aounma eventually became the main producer of the Zelda franchise, a position he still holds to this day.

Until Ocarina of Time, he was credited by the name Eiji Onozuka; he changed his surname to Aonuma upon his marriage.
