Anschluss 🔊 (or Surprise Anschluss, or Anschluß polskan) (Which is translate to English said Connection) is a running gag in the Polandball universe used to describe a countryball becoming a rectangle with small eyes (the "Anschluss eyes") before proceeding to invade and/or annex another countryball.
Historically, it refers to the Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. The most common example of this is Germanyball becoming Reichtangle. Anschluss can also be used to describe a countryball with dominance in a certain skill.
