Totakeke "K.K." Slider, (とたけけ, Totakeke), or K.K., is a dog who has appeared in all the Animal Crossing series games to date. His main role is to play and sing songs for the player. He made a cameo appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and in Doubutsu no Mori (film). He was also one of the three Animal Crossing characters to be a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, the others being Mr. Resetti and Tom Nook. He has recorded a performance called K.K. Slider: Live at the Roost. There are 55 songs in the original Animal Crossing, 70 songs in Wild World, 75 in City Folk, and 91 in New Leaf for a total of 91 songs.

Personality[edit]

K.K. Slider is a laid-back musician. His mellow speech patterns reflects his relaxed state. He comes across as someone who is passionate about his craft. Money isn't his biggest motivator. Every Saturday he can be found; doing what he loves for free.

Appearances[edit]

Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, and Animal Crossing[edit]

In Dōbutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing, K.K. Slider starts the game up for the first player. Every Saturday night from 8 P.M. to 12 A.M., he can be found sitting on a wooden stool outside the Train Station. If spoken to, he will perform a song for the player. He also gives them a copy to take home.

Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

K.K. Slider still has the same role as in the previous installments, though he has added several new songs to his repertoire.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

In Wild World, K.K. Slider still sings and plays for listeners, performing at the same time (every Saturday from 8 P.M. to 12 A.M.) as he did in the previous games, but now he plays them at The Roost, on top of a stage located in the cafe's upper left corner. The player can request a specific song or let him play a random song. After the performance, whether the song was random or requested, he slips a free bootleg of the song into the player's pockets. This action opposes the industry practice of putting a price on music. Compared to previous entries in the series, several new songs have been added. Giving him a country guitar will allow the player to obtain his portrait. If the gates are open, K.K. will not appear until they are closed. He can't perform in the multiplayer mode.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

K.K. Slider has the same role in Wild World, but now he gives encores. The player can tell him exactly what song you want to hear, or let him pick. Another way to choose a song is to tell him a mood, and he will pick something out based on it. Cranky villagers will sometimes mention that they think that Phineas is K.K.'s day job. As with Wild World, he will be in The Roost starting at 8pm to Midnight and some new songs have been added. However, the player will not receive a bootleg copy of the encore. The multiplayer issue in Animal Crossing: Wild World is fixed. He appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk and onward during multiplayer.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

K.K Slider performing at Club LOL on any day besides Saturday.

K.K. Slider once again makes an appearance, but this time in a new, separate building called Club LOL. On every day of the week besides Saturday, starting at 8 P.M., he will perform remixed tunes and some of his tracks for the player to listen to, including several new songs, under the pseudonym DJ K.K. When he performs as DJ K.K., his appearance changes: he now wears glasses, a cap, and headphones.

As in previous games, on Saturday nights starting at 8 P.M., he will play songs by requests, mood, or randomly, depending on what the player wants. Attending 20 of his acoustic performances in New Leaf will have K.K. Slider give the player his picture. K.K. Slider's songs can be bought from T.I.Y., T&T Emporium, or the catalog for 3,200 Bells each.

Doubutsu no Mori (film)[edit]

He plays in front of the train station every Saturday night starting at 8.00 p.m. He has a large repertoire and plays both old and new hits from all over the world.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Animal Crossing, he says his name is Totakeke, but prefers the nickname K.K. Slider. He has not mentioned his formal moniker in subsequent English releases, however.
    • He is named after Animal Crossing sound designer, Kazumi Totaka. His Japanese name is taken from the Japanese tradition that last names be written first, so it is Totaka Kazumi. That can be shortened to "Totaka K.", which sounds like "Totakeke".
      • K.K. Song was also composed by Totaka and appears in various Nintendo titles, including Mario Paint, Yoshi's Story, and Luigi's Mansion.
  • Most of K.K. Slider's music is composed by Toru Minegishi, who has also composed much of the music for recent Zelda and Mario titles.[2]
  • K.K. Slider's songs use the sounds "Queh", "Quay", "O", "Ah", "Me", "Na", "Now", "Le", and "Moo". In some songs, he will howl, whistle, click, and hum.
  • K.K. Slider is on the cover of all Animal Crossing games except Animal Crossing.
  • The only song with actual lyrics is K.K. Bossa, which was called K.K.'s Rhythm in the Animal Crossing movie.
  • K.K. Slider plays either an acoustic or a country guitar.
  • He is the first character to appear in an Animal Crossing game, being the first character to appear in Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing, asking the player some questions after the title screen.
  • When K.K. plays a song, his right paw never actually reaches the guitar strings.
  • If a song is requested that K.K. doesn't know, K.K. will play a random background tune and tell the player he does not know the song.
  • In the original four games, Copper, the police dog, always wishes to listen to some of K.K.'s songs, though he denies it when asked about it.
  • His famous quote "Those industry fat cats try to put a price on my music, but it wants to be free" has been mentioned on various news websites regarding illegal file sharing.[3]
It has been suggested that the trivia section be shortened by relocating relevant information into the main article.
