In the 2001 film Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Kida belongs to the fictional race of Atlanteans. But in this artwork, the Queen of Atlantis is reimagined as a Māori woman. As a member of the indigenous Polynesian tribe, Kida has a traditional female chin tattoo called the moko kauae. Māori women consider these tattoos as a physical manifestation of their true identity. It is believed that every Māori woman wears a moko on the inside, close to their heart; and when they are ready, the tattoo artist simply brings it out to the surface.
