The infamously brutal dictator of Uganda from 1971 to 1979.

Works featuring Amin;

Comics
* ComicStrip/{{Nero}}: Featured in three albums. In the first, "De Wensring", the author was forced to make him unrecognizable by scribbling a beard on his face, because Amin was considered to be a "friend" of the Belgian government and the newspaper publishers didn't want to offend him. In later appearances, such as "De Zweefbonbons" and "Daris Doet Het" Amin had already fallen out of favor with the West and thus Sleen was allowed to portray him uncensored. Amin is portrayed as a dumb and cruel brute with boxing gloves that continually drip with blood. He considers Nero to be his friend, yet locks him up in "De Wensring" because he doesn't want him to leave. In "Daris Doet Het" Nero and Idi Amin have a fall-out because Nero takes away Amin's dinner to feed it to the hungry population. Later in the story Amin is eaten by crocodiles.
* ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes: Idi Amin is also a regular villain in this comic book series, yet named Bibi Pralin Gaga. Again he is portrayed as a dumb tyrant with a career in boxing. Creator Merho commented: "Amin was already a comic book character. I just put him back in his original environment."

Film
* Film/TheLastKingOfScotland- Giles Foden's novel as well as the film adaptation
* He appears in "Raid On Entebbe"(1977), "Victory at Entebbe" (1976) and the Israeli film "Operation Thunderbolt" (1977), all about the historic Israeli rescue operation of the same name.
* He is the subject of the sprawling, fantastically sleazy (yet surprisingly historically accurate) exploitation epic, "AminTheRiseAndFall"(1981). Kenyan actor Joseph Olita, who played Amin, later reprised it in a cameo for the film "Mississippi Massala", about the 1972 deportation of the Ugandan Asians.
* The subject of the 1974 documentary "General Idi Amin Dada: An Autoportrait", created by filmmakers who were careful to put his already infamous regime in context, but depicted it primarily through interviews with Amin in which he related his....colourful views on various subjects and was depicted in normal interactions with his subjects.
Liberature
* "The Collected Bulletins of Idi Amin" and "The Further Bulletins of Idi Amin" (1974 and 1975): Books compiled from the "Punch" magazine columns of the British humourist Allan Coren. While today they would no doubt be considered highly offensive, Coren's lampooning of Amin's famously garbled pidgin English (a consequence of his sadly illiterate upbringing), and penchant for public acts of buffoonery that mingled hideously with his known penchant for crimes against humanity guarantees a hearty (if somewhat guilt-filled) laugh to the contemporary reader. The books were later recorded as the 1975 album "The Collected Broadcasts of Idi Amin", recited with a suitably comically insensitive accent by the comedian John Bird.
