K.K. Slider (とたけけ, Totakeke?), commonly known as K.K., is a dog who appears in all of the Animal Crossing series games to date. His purpose is performing music for the player.
His birthday was revealed in Animal Crossing Plaza. Like other that appear in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, he does not celebrate it.
K.K. Slider is a hippie-style traveling musician, which is reflected in his mellow speech towards the player. He comes across as someone who wants to be liberated, as shown by his rebellion against putting a price on his songs. This adds to the musician stereotype of going against a particular norm. Despite that, his songs are for sale in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for 3,200 (3,600 with the bell boom ordinance) bells when Timmy and Tommy upgraded to T.I.Y. K.K. has an obvious passion for performing for others, as he offers to play for people on a weekly basis. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, he seems to know Brewster fairly well.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, K.K. appears on stage on Saturday nights after 8:00 pm inside Club LOL, owned by Dr. Shrunk. From Sunday to Friday, he takes on the guise of DJ. K.K., performing a variety of different songs based on themes. On the first performance as K.K. Slider, he will randomly pick one of the new songs introduced in New Leaf. Afterwards, the player is allowed to request a song by specific title or mood. Players will get the first song he plays, but not the rest, unless they do not have enough space in their pockets, in which case the player will receive a song as soon as they have made space in their pockets and requested another song.
