"Comrade K.K." is a K.K. Slider song in the Animal Crossing series that first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori. The song is reminiscent of traditional Russian folk music and especially Bard music, a genre that was common among amateur musicians in the former Soviet Union. This is reflected in the song's title, with comrade being commonly associated with communism and Russian speakers. The song's Japanese name refers to ryūkōka, or early Shōwa-era popular music in Japanese, which is also heavily influenced by European folk music and known for the heavy use of the accordion.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The song's album cover features K.K. Slider with hair, glasses, and a suit. In New Leaf K.K. is against a gray and beige background, while in New Horizons he is against a purple background. The song's North American e-Reader card artwork features Weber, Iggy, Rolf, Lobo, and K.K. Slider; they appear to wear buttoned-up ushanka style hats (a hat popularized in the Soviet-era) and performing Russian folk dance, with a building resembling Saint Basil's Cathedral appearing in the background. The Japanese e-Reader card artwork instead features the image used for its New Leaf album cover.
