John II, Count of Nevers (known as Jean de Clamecy, prior to acquiring title of "Count of Nevers"; 1415–1491) was a French noble.

He was the son of Philip II, Count of Nevers by his wife Bonne of Artois, daughter of Philip of Artois, Count of Eu. John's elder brother, Charles I, Count of Nevers and Count of Rethel, had no legitimate children, and so on his death in 1464 his titles passed to John. In 1472, his uncle Charles of Artois, Count of Eu died, and having no legitimate children, his title also passed to John.

John fought in the army of his stepfather Philip the Good and was active in Picardy (1434), Calais (1436), Luxembourg (1443) and Flanders (1453). But he clashed with Philip's successor, Charles the Bold and he defected to King Louis XI of France.

He fought alongside Louis XI in the War of the Public Weal and became Lieutenant General of Normandy.
