Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TwelveRedLines'' has Jones, a Canadian SelfInsert who joins the [[Manga/OnePiece Straw Hat Pirates]]. In addition, since Oda gave Chopper's real-world nationality as Canadian, the writer has expanded the culture of Drum Kingdom in a [[CanadianEqualsHockeyFan rather familiar direction.]]

* According to [[FanFic/DantesNightAtFreddys Dante's Night at Freddy's 2: Animatronic Boogaloo]], [[spoiler: The Marionette]] is Canadian. This is treated as absurdly as it sounds.

** In another episode, Oscar has passport-related difficulties due to being in America when his expired. Brent senses a potential prank and runs with it, convinces Oscar to act out every possible Canadian stereotype to "convince the CRTC that he really is Canadian", culminating in trying to have him sing the national anthem in public knowing he'll mess it up. [[spoiler: Brent ends up singing the anthem instead due to his mother's interference, and he screws it up entirely because his attempts to confuse Oscar result in him forgetting which lyrics (O Canada or Star Spangled Banner) go with which melody.]]

* On ''Series/{{Lost}}'' Ethan claims to be from Canada when talking to Hurley, to which Hurley replies "Cool, I love Canada! They've got great... Uhh..." Cue Ethan's good-hearted laugh. Of course, [[spoiler: he was actually born on the island and was lying.]] Everything involving Canada was synonymous with lying, [[spoiler: except in Nathan's case, but that was to fool the audience into thinking he was lying.]]

* Ruth from ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'' is Canadian, but had to move to the [=US=] after [[spoiler: a drunk driver killed her parents.]] She's a die-hard Maple Leafs fan, but that's about as far as the stereotype gets.

** In "The Secret Snake Club", Lake Ontario was the home of the legendary 8 km long snake Shnissugah, who would protect the nerds from bullies by swallowing them whole. [[spoiler: It turns out that Shnissugah isn't as mighty as the Secret Snake Club thought as it is 8 ''cm'' long, and can't eat the cool kids because Shnissugah says they're full of "trans-fatty acids".]]

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', a top secret Canadian spy [[spoiler: who's actually Joe the Janitor introduced earlier]] ends his explanation speech with "eh", but it's delivery makes it sound like it's mocking the trope. Kim also uses the trope earlier in the episode, commenting "Canada, eh?" when she's told that Drakken is in Canada.

* Creator/JoniMitchell, like CelineDion,[[note]]but possibly better[[/note]] is practically a national icon. She avoids being a professional Canadian, but just now and again her nationality receives a nod.

** The houseguests of course find the stereotypes hilarious and even join in themselves - Season 2 featured a Canadian flag that they all signed. Surprisingly, you don't hear a lot of "Eh?"s, although season 2 definitely features a lot of people with thicker CanadianAccents than the first season, which featured mostly people from Ontario. (Notable for Kyle, Jon, and Sabrina, whose East-Canadian and Francophone accents are ''definitely'' pronounced. Jon and Allison even got so drunk they [[TheUnintelligible spoke Newfie to each other]]) Many of the Canadian viewers even get a chuckle, especially in the second season where the first words heard on the live feeds were [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Where's the Maple Syrup?"]]

* A very early example from 1941 propaganda film, ''Film/FortyNinthParalell''. Creator/MichaelPowell and Emeric Pressburger, both British, pulled out all the Canadian stereotypes, mostly good. There’s Scenery Porn up the yingyang, showing Banff, Niagara Falls, and the Prairies; there’s a French-Canadian fur trapper who sings French nursery rhymes; the Germans basically travel all across Canada meeting Native Americans, Hutterites, and average Canadians; there’s a quick shout out to RCMP and the CBC; and last, but not least, a native Torontonian pronounces Toronto like “Torrana”.
