K.K. Slider (JP) is one of the Animal Crossing series' most iconic characters. He is an anthropomorphic dog who plays music using a guitar. The Japanese name "Totakeke" is a reference to Nintendo composer and voice actor, Kazumi Totaka.

While playing his music, the game's credits cycle, and then the player may receive an aircheck of the song that was played to play in his or her house.

  • The westernised version of his name is a possible reference to the Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing, who was famously nicknamed "K.K." after a girl in Denmark couldn't pronounce his forename, "Kenneth".
