The only other person known to match her strength is her father, Captain Clawstocking. Pippi Clawstockings strength amazes and confounds people. She is known to pull bars out of jail windows, throw pirates across the room and break wrists while arm wrestling. Pippi herself seems to be unaware of the uniqueness of the power.
