For the past 30 years Akira Toriyama has played a vital role in history of the manga industry. Dragonball, Sand Land, Toccio the Angel, Cowa, Bitch's life, Neko Majin, the new one shot Kintoki as well as various character designs in video games such as Chrono Trigger and Dragon Quest make up his notable contribution to the manga/anime world.  
 
Akira's first major success was the gag manga Dr. Slump, which was serialized in Shonen Jump from 1980 -1984. The journey from writing a hugely popular gag based manga like Dr. Slump to authoring the most popular fighting series ever is not as clear cut as one might think. Among the humor found in Dr. Slump, we see gags such as talking shots at real life manga editors, abundant toilet humor, and constant Superman parodies. Dr. Slump is somewhat of a sibling series to Dragonball, and within its pages we find the beginning of ideas and concepts that would come to fruition years later.  
 
Dr. Slump is packed with many feats, most of which center around "wicked strong" Arale Norimaki, a child android created by the titular Dr. Senbei.   
 
With that being said I will try to scan and show what feats I can, others are welcome to add whatever they feel applicable.  
 



 

The manga version of Toriyama's real life editor creates the mighty Carmel Man in order to conquer the world and in the process destroy Arale. 
Carmal Man's strength is nearly on par with Arale, and he can destroy the moon via physical force.


Carmel Man uses a telephone poll to smack Arale across the world 


However with blinding speed she quickly comes back, and knocks Carmel Man from the Earth to Venus, the Sun, and Mercury.  
She then jumps and causes the planet Earth to smash downward into Venus.

On route to Senbei's big interview, Arale picks up a street car and tosses it like nothing. 

Arale easily lifts up a giant die

Midori, Senbei's wife, jogs around the Earth for one month straight in an attempt to lose weight 

Arale quickly runs around the Earth 


Gatchan and Tsururin Tsun use their superpowers to  dominate the high jump competition

A wandering warrior thinks he tough because he can destroy a mountain with one blow  
 


Arale shows him up by cracking the moon in half with a casual jab 


Senbei's repairs go array and Arale springs a leak, which evidently is powerful enough to propel her to the moon 

Arale uses a phone pole and pokes through the moon like a squid ball

Arale easily destroys a mountain with one blow 

From the Dragonball-Dr Slump cross over chapters, Arale  headbutts Blue Shogun of the Red Ribbon Army across the planet







The Dragonball Daizenshuu confirms she can split the earth in half and run at mach speeds. A similar entry for Arale is given in Budokai Tenkaichi 3 game (Sparking! Meteor), where it is said she can destroy the earth and walk at the speed of sound.  
Though it should be noted that other speed feats put her well in excess of the speed of sound and arguably the speed of light.


 
Arale chases after an Alligator felon  
His attempts at shooting her are in vain, and she easily out speeds his getaway car
 
The gator then gets the bright idea to board a space ship and head for space 

He gets all the way to Saturn within a panel, yet Arale outraces him and is already waiting in the outer solar system by the time he arrives
Needless to say he promptly turned himself in

@The_Desert_Tiger: That it is, but so is Gintama, and look at the success/notoriety that franchise has gained in the few years it has existed with the many jabs at pop culture, real-life personalities, toilet humor, etc!

Arale displays super intellect 

Arale tosses a boulder and destroys a mountain


Senbei lifts up a car
Arale punches a Benigumos all the way to another planet






 
Mashirito's Carmel Man 03 has lasers that casually destroy planets

Upon travveling to the past, Arale, Gatchan, Mr. Time, and Tsuru Rin witness a giant meteorite falling on the Earth

Gatchan stomps the meteorite with physical force, and Arale headbutts it out of Earths orbit


It turns out the meteor was the moon

I remember the Arale character showing up in DBZ but I never knew her origins.  Thanks for the education.
