No. Noble gases are mostly unreactive and do not act as bases.

Keep in mind, too, that noble gases rarely react with anything (as I understand it) and so you also will not find noble gases forming or breaking bonds very often.

To be classified as an acid or a base, the element must give or receive electrons. Nobel gases typically do not engage.
