Why She Rocks

- She is responsible for maintaining peace in the neighborhood, preventing the boys from causing problems or fights.
- Has an impressive super-strength, which can often be compared to even superheroes like Superman.
- She has a unique, cute, and iconic design. Her rabbit has even been so popular that she is unable to be seen without it.
- She is brave and often uses her super strength to defeat villains and criminals.
- She always helps her friends when they need her.
- As her popularity goes on and on, she not only has her own comic book, but also appears in cartoons, video games, films, clothing and various other types of merchandising.
- She was based on the daughter of the creator himself, Mauricio de Sousa.
- Originally she was a supporting character for Jimmy Five, but she managed to prove her charisma by becoming popular in TV commercials in the late 1960s to the point of becoming the main protagonist from the 1970s onwards.
- She sometimes regrets when she smacks Jimmy Five and Smudge, that's more notable in the live-action movie "Turma da Mônica: Laços".
- Her Marli Bortoletto acting is pretty good.
- Sometimes she is very bossy and rude to the boys, especially Jimmy Five, taking advantage of her super strength.
