"K.K. Steppe" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It has a Slavic feel to it. The song starts out at a very fast pace, and the second portion starts out very slow and gradually gets faster and faster, similar to the Russian folk song "Kalinka." The middle is played as solo by a wind instrument that is similar to a flute in sound, which could be a Kalyuka, a Russian and Ukrainian instrument that has no holes.

A "steppe" is a large area of flat grassland with no forests mostly in southeastern Europe or Siberia, a part of Russia. It may be a reference to the Wild Fields of Ukraine, which was home to many Southern Russian and Ukrainian Cossack communities.
