Dylan Mika (born 17 April 1972 in Auckland) is a former rugby union player who represented both Samoa national rugby union team and New Zealand.

He was initially educated at Marcellin College, Auckland before moving to St Peter's College. Mika played mainly at flanker during his career. He first played internationally for Samoa despite being born in New Zealand. Playing two Tests in 1994, he then stood down internationally for three years to enable him to play for the All Blacks. He played provincially for Auckland between 1994 and 2000, and for the Blues in the Super 12. He was drafted into the Chiefs in 1999, and his performances there helped earn him All Blacks selection.

He played a total of seven All Blacks Tests and one gameā€”all in 1999. His first All Blacks match was against his old side Samoa, who were also captained by his first cousin Pat Lam. He played in several of that year's Tri-Nations matches before being selected for the squad in the 1999 Rugby World Cup. In that tournament he started only one match; against Italy in Huddersfield. In 2000 he returned to the Blues before playing for Auckland in the National Provincial Championship. Following that season he moved to Japan. On his retirement from rugby he returned to New Zealand.
