"K.K. Ballad" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It features an orchestra, simple 70s ballad drums, and a plinking steel drum in its melody.

The song has a distinctly different melody in Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+ than in the international release of Animal Crossing.[1] The change remains in all subsequent games.

Album cover[edit]

In New Leaf, the text at the bottom of the cover is illegible, while in New Horizons, it is now in central position and reads "K.K." on the left position from K.K.'s head and "Ballad" on the right position. The cover in this game also zoomed in.
