Tabgach was a central Asian name for China, derived from Tuoba (拓跋), a powerful Xianbei tribe. Also the byname for the Tang Empire in Tangri Bilge's Orhon inscriptions. At that time China was dominated by half-Xianbei and half-Chinese people.

The Turkish khan bashed the Tabgach for being content with sedentary life.

Later, a Kara-Khanid sultan of Kashgari was given the name Tabgach Mahmoud.
