This page is an (incomplete) list of the vocabulary and terminology of the Polandball universe and comics, and their origin.

ReichTime Anschluss 🔊Edit

Main article: Anschluss
DU0aWf9-1-1

The Anschluss has been halted.

Originally a Nazi propaganda term used to refer to the annexation of Austriaball into Nazi Germanyball, it is used by Germanyball and Reichtangle when taking clay of other countries. This is displayed when the former features characteristics of the latter. It has been temporarily banned from the Polandball Reddit ('Joke Life Preserve' process), though it still makes regular appearances on Facebook from time to time. The phrase is infrequently followed by zeit.

There are anschluss forms for other countries. For example, Brazilian Empireball uses "ãoxluss".

DickRhino-icon Börk 🔊Edit

Börk is a meaningless word that originated from the Muppets Show Swedish Chef1. It has no meaning at all because it was just supposed to sound Swedish-like.

When it was integrated into the meme, this word has been used to define an exclamation made by a country, each of the latter having its own version, listed here below.

Several comics have been made about Sweden infecting other countries with börk and turning them into zombies, thus triggering the Börkpocalypse.

Sometimes, in Polandball comics (often as an insult; i.e. remove _____) countries are referred to as typical foods from that country. This originated from calling Turkish people (and later the whole Muslim world in general) 'kebab', from the 'Remove Kebab' copypaste. Here is a list in alphabetical order:


Historical: Edit

Exclamations / Swearings Edit

Usually, countries exclamate and swear in their own language but there are some exceptions like Israel-icon Israelcube that shouts mainly "Oy vey". The mostly known swear is Kurwa that literally means prostitute in Polish language.

KawaiiEdit

Kawaii is a state of Japanball. It is a term for when it is interested in adorable things, and illustrates this by wearing appropriate garbs, such as cat ears or a furry tail. It is often joked about as contageous, and a manipulative phase in a new Japanese Empireball uprising.

Many artists in the Facebook Polandball community, such as Nalali are famous there for drawing different varieties of countryballs in this fashion. It is considered "cancer" by a strong following of them.

Laughing Edit

Here are distinctive laughs of some Polandball characters.

RelevanceEdit

Relevance is a Polandball term used for saying (political, historical and economical) importance of a particular country. It can also refer to the size of that country.

A common joke is small countries and micronations pretending, or trying to be relevant, mostly Sealandball.

Polandball comics will sometime include special dialects in sentences, here are the commonly used ones. In Polandball all countries speaks the names of other countries mixing English with own native language.

  • Singapore-icon Singapore Ends a sentence of exclamation, question or anger in "lah/leh/sia/hor/meh/lor etc"
  • Japan-icon Japan Ends nearly every sentence in "desu"
  • Brazil-icon Brazil and the Lusosphere When you want to say "Hello", it might become "Hue-llo", due to the Hue thing going on.

Polandball grammarEdit

This phrase originated from Poland cannot into space and means that a certain country can't achieve to get something. Notable examples are:  * Poland-icon Poland cannot into space: It's the most known gag. It also means nothing space-related for Polandball (nothing in space, no space program...).

ClayEdit

It means land. For example, Polandball often complains to Russiaball for stealing his clay and horses.

This term originated in a YouTube video (broken) posted ranting against Kebab from Serbiaball's point of view. It is from the 'Remove Kebab' copypasta. The video gave Bosniaball one chance to give back Serbia's righteous clay.

stupid baby form the eggn give bak our clay we will crush u lik a skull of pig. serbia greattst countrey
 
— Remove kebab copypasta, origin of 'clay'

"Clay" is probably the result of a literal bad (machine) translation of the word "land" (as in piece of land) from Serbian to English.

GibEdit

German imperative for give. Very common phrases are gib clay or gib sea. Gib sea is frequently used by landlockeds (Austriaball, Boliviaball, Hungaryball, Paraguayball, San Marinoball, Switzerlandball, Serbiaball, Uzbekistanball,...) Often used by Gypsyballs.

HueEdit

The typical laugh of Brazilball and also of the Lusosphere. [2][3]

Remove HUE is equivalent to the more correct form Remove Feijoada.

OfEdit

It's the symbol of broken English. It's often put in random places or, more frequently, after the verb to be.

PloxEdit

It means please.

Pay de(n)btsEdit

Often satirized in Polandball is the fact that many countries owe many other countries money via the International Monetary Fund. Contrary to the popular stereotype of the USAball owing many countries money; due to Polandball's natural eurocentrism, it often involves other countries of Europe owing money to one another. A more popular example is Greeceball owing Germanyball money, and constantly (and successfully) begging for more.

MakeEdit

Sometimes, make is put in front of verbs often like making or makes.

StronkEdit

Broken English spelling of strong.

YuoEdit

Broken English spelling of you.

Homosex/Homogay/Gender Edit

Usually, it could mean countries that like homosexuals or transgender people, or countries that recognize them and don't discriminate against them, with a well-known example being Swedenball and if a country cannot into gender or does not want into gender, they don't recognize homosexuals or transgenders as good, and often discriminates them by using religion, and popular examples of anti-homosex/homogay/gender countries would be Russiaball ,Polandball, or Vaticanball. Overall, it just means LGBT people or countries that like the LGBT community. In Polandball, homosex, homogay, and gender basically mean the same thing.
