This is an example page of what K.K. Slider song pages could look like once all the games have their tracks. As such, not all files actually exist… yet.

"Go K.K. Rider" (stylized as "Go K.K. Rider!" prior to New Leaf) is a K.K. Slider song that appears throughout the entire Animal Crossing series. It is a fast-paced, action-type melody which resembles and, based on its title and the album art, is directly inspired by the various theme songs of Kamen Rider, a superhero television franchise originating in the 1970s which is very famous and significant in Japan.

Album cover

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "Go K.K. Rider" features K.K. Slider wearing a red scarf and riding a motorcycle. He is depicted against an orange and yellow background, riding away from a white explosion. A red logo in the upper-left corner is somewhat illegible in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and is based on a highly-stylized version of Japanese katakana, but it is legible in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and reads in actual katakana "ケケライダー" (Keke Raidā), or "K.K. Rider."

Appearances

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, "Go K.K. Rider!" is played in Twirp's house. In Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+, it is also played in Stinky's house. In Doubutsu no Mori e+, it is also played in the houses of Nindori, Samson, and Tarou, and the aircheck of the song's live performance can be received from Kid Cat, Nindori, Ribbot, Rizzo, Samson, Tarou, and Twirp at maximum friendship.

In Wild World

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, "Go K.K. Rider!" is played in the houses of Kid Cat, Ribbot, and Samson.

It can also be heard on the player's TV during a certain hour of the day while the "Action Racer" channel is on, although it lacks the main melody track like most songs on TV.

In City Folk

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, "Go K.K. Rider!" is played in the houses of Kid Cat, Ribbot, Samson, and Stinky.

Apart from the usual live performance and aircheck, the TV arrangement reappears from Wild World.

In New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, "Go K.K. Rider" is played in the houses of Kid Cat, Ribbot, Samson, and Stinky. It also plays in Mr. Resetti's RV.

New to this game are DJ KK remixes of the song, as well as a music box obtainable from Cyrus. Once again, it can be heard on TV.

In New Horizons

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, "Go K.K. Rider" is played in the houses of Agent S, Al, Big Top, Kid Cat, and Mira.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise, "Go K.K. Rider" is played in the houses of Agent S, Hopper, Kid Cat, and Lucha.

Like all K.K. songs, the quality of the aircheck varies depending on the type of stereo it is being played on. In Version 2.0, a music box version was added with a different arrangement than in New Leaf, and DJ KK can play it during festivals on the Archipelago.

In Happy Home Designer

In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, "Go K.K. Rider" is played in the houses of Agent S, Kevin, Kid Cat, Leila, and Lucha.

Like all other airchecks in this game, it was also given an ending for performances in the Concert Hall. Villagers can sing along, with female, male and low male voices depending on the personality. The music box arrangements from New Leaf also reappear.

Other appearances

In the Super Smash Bros. series

A remix of "Go K.K. Rider" is featured in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as one of the music tracks that may play on the Smashville and Town and City stages.

In Mario Kart 8

In Mario Kart 8 in the Summer version of the Animal Crossing course, K.K. Slider is present on a cliff by the beach and sings a short loop of "Go K.K. Rider," though it can be difficult to hear with the background music on top.
