Added DiffLines:

* Kaiser Wilhelm II, who was born with a withered left arm, [[CompensatingForSomething developed the strength in his right arm to compensate]]. Given that his job required him to meet-and-greet numerous officials, the Kaiser would do a cruel prank where he'd turn his rings to the inside of his hand, then give a crushing handshake until the official begged him to stop.

* ''Literature/HonorHarrington'': The series includes enough characters from high-gravity worlds for the occasional [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidental]] hand-crushing, but it's known to happen deliberately as well. At the first meeting between Klaus Hauptman and Honor, he tried to crush her hand ... forgetting that she's a heavyworlder. Honor wins.
