"Hypno K.K." is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk as a live-only performance, and with an aircheck version in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. "Hypno-" as a prefix relates to sleep, and the original Japanese name, "Dozing Dream", indicates that the song is likely intended to be soothing or lullaby-like. This is also reflected by how Sherb, a sleep-themed lazy goat, plays it in his house.

Owing to this, the song may be based on hauntology music. The genre is characterized by distorted psychedelic sounds that may give the listener a sense of nostalgia or inner peace. Specifically, it may be derived from hypnagogic pop, a subgenre of hauntology. The live version of the song is more akin to neo-psychedelia, a genre from the 1980s which modernized psychedelic music from the 1960s by combining it with alternative rock, and was a precursor to hauntology and hypnagogic pop.
