"K.K. Dirge" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is based off of dark ambient, a subgenre of ambient music, which employs occult and horror themes. The song is extremely slow, dark, and eerie; the word dirge means a song of lament and sadness. It is unmelodious and discordant. Its instruments are unknown, but there is a constant string bass line, a piano dissonance at one point, and then a crash of cacophony at another. It resembles the music from Ghost Houses in the Mario series.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "K.K. Dirge" features K.K. Slider wearing a hooded black robe and holding a candle as he walks through a dark stone corridor. Jack looms over closely behind, haunting him. The album cover in New Horizons changes the stone corridor into a house hallway, and Jack peers through a curtained window rather than following directly behind K.K. However, K.K.'s posing with his candle is not changed.
