Nicklass Preußen (Niclas prewßen, Nicklass prewsñ) was a 14th or 15th century German fencing master. His name seems to indicate that he was a Prussian, but nothing is known about this master's life. He is not mentioned by Paulus Kal as being a member of the Fellowship of Liechtenauer, and his exact relation to the high master is uncertain.

Along with Andres Juden, Jobs von der Nyssen, and "The Priest" Hans Döbringer, Preußen is one of the four masters credited with writing the addendum to Johannes Liechtenauer's Recital found in the Pol Hausbuch and the Glasgow Fechtbuch.
