Among the Dasavatara, Sri Buddha is the ninth avatara.
Additionally, Sri Buddha is the twenty-fourth lila-avatara.
In Chapters 17-18 of the 3rd Section of Vishnu Purana, Buddha has been designated as �Mayamoha�. Once, while bathing in the waters of the Yamuna, Akrura was astonished to see Krishna-Balarama within the river. Coming out, he saw Them seated in a chariot as They had been before appearing in the water. Again he immersed himself in the water, and saw the yellow-clad four-handed Vasudeva Sri Krishna along with His associates, graciously seated on the lap of the thousand-hooded Sri Anantadeva while being worshiped by Brahma and other demigods. At that time, he prayed to the Lord in the following manner:
Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 40: The Prayers of Akrura
namo buddhaya suddhaya
namas te kalki-rupine
Obeisances to Your form as the faultless Lord Buddha, who will bewilder the Daityas and Danavas, and to Lord Kalki, the annihilator of the meat-eaters posing as kings.

All eighteen names of Buddha from �sarvajna� (omniscient) to �sakyamuni�, refer to Vishnu-avatara Buddha. Therefore, �Sugata� clearly refers only to Vishnu-avatara Buddha.
