"Imperial K.K." is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is based on the traditional Chinese music, and derives its name from China's history as an imperial state prior to the downfall of the Qing dynasty in 1912. It has a gong, a few Asian gamelans, lutes, horns, and other Asian percussion.
The album cover for "Imperial K.K." features Pekoe holding a fan and wearing what appears to be a cheongsam. In the background, K.K. Slider is sitting on a floating cloud among a couple of sky lanterns.

- On Nintendo's Doubutsu no Mori website, a "comment from development" (most likely composer Toru Minegishi) stated that they aimed for Imperial K.K. to be a misunderstood version of traditional Chinese music, and that K.K. himself is not aware of the misunderstanding.
