** Ephraim has SuperStrength of his own, but is still only as strong (and perhaps even a little bit weaker) than Pippi despite being physically larger than her.

Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysABiggerFish: Subverted. Pippi has inherited her SuperStrength from her father, so you'd expect him to be the only one stronger than her... but no, she's actually (somewhat) stronger than even ''him.''

* AnimatedAdaptation: The only studio to attempt it so far is {{Nelvana}}, the same studio that produced {{Care Bears}}. It started in 1997 as a movie musical, then spun off into a 26 episode TV series.

* CanonImmigrant: Mrs. Prysselius doesn't appear in the original books, but after her introduction in the 1969 Swedish TV series has been in every later adaptation. She is pretty much an [[CompositeCharacter amalgamation of all the concerned women from the books who disapproved of Pippi living alone,]] given a name and a much larger role.

* ExtremeOmnivore: Pippi once, on a whim, drank a cocktail of "meduseen (sic)" from the local pharmacy, including several bottles marked "For External Use Only". She seemed to be just fine in the next chapter.
** And don't forget her literal nail soup (a swedish expression similar to StoneSoup).

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Swedish policemen were indeed armed with swords at the time the book was published. Until the 1960s, in fact.
