"K.K. Lament" is a K.K. Slider song with a sad-sounding melody. Gulliver appears flying overhead on the album cover.

As the Japanese title suggests, this song is based on a style of Japanese music/singing called Enka. This type of music can be described as sentimental ballads, blending an almost lounge-like vocal performance with emotional themes, like from love, loss, death, and other hardships.

Cesar (from Wild World to New Leaf), Curt (in Animal Crossing: New Leaf), Cyrano (in Animal Crossing: New Horizons), Dobie (in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo), Hornsby (beginning as of Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo), Joey (in Wild World and City Folk), Moose (in Animal Crossing: City Folk), Oxford, Rizzo (before Animal Crossing: New Horizons), Rocco (beginning as of Animal Crossing: New Leaf), Tank and Walt (in Animal Crossing: New Horizons) all play this song in their homes if they have a stereo.


  • In New Horizons, Tom Nook states that "K.K. Lament" is his go-to karaoke song.
