Niels Feijen (born 3 February 1977, The Hague) is a professional pool player, from the Hague, Netherlands. His nickname is "the Terminator". In 2014 he won the 9-ball championship.

In 2001, Feijen reached the finals of a nine-ball tournament in Tokyo, Japan. The event had a field of more than 700 players and offered the largest prize money at that time. However, he lost to Efren Reyes. In 2004, he won the inaugural Skins Billiards Championship with prize money of US$42,500. Feijen has won the European straight pool championship five times. In 2005 he was the winner of the Big Apple Nine-ball Classic, held in Queens, New York, an event with 128 of the world's best players. He represented Europe in the 2001, 2004-5, 2007-9 and 2011-15 Mosconi Cup events.

Feijen won the 2007 $50,000 winner-take-all International Challenge of Champions by defeating Lee Van Corteza. In 2008, Feijen won the World Straight Pool Championship with a victory over Francisco Bustamante in the finals. On October 5, 2008, he received the 3rd prize of $25,000 in the inaugural WPA World Ten-ball Championship.

In 2010, Feijen reached the finals of the WPA World Eight-ball Championship but ended up in 2nd place losing to Karl Boyes of Great Britain. He would reach the finals of that same tournament again the next year, and was defeated by Dennis Orcollo of the Philippines. 2014 has been the best year so far for Feijen, who won the European Straight Pool Championship, the European 9-ball Championship and the WPA World Nine-ball Championship. In 2015 he was voted Most Valuable Player of the Mosconi Cup for the fourth time in the last five years.
