* ''Film/PoliceAcademy 4'' shows the team putting a scare into some new recruits using Hightower as a voodoo houngan trying to revive his brother, who lies "dead" in a body bag. After some chanting, the brother (played by Tackleberry) awakes, firing up his chainsaw to cut his way out of the bag. And he's wearing a hockey mask, of course.

* ''Film/ShriekIfYouKnowWhatIDidLastFridayTheThirteenth'': Played with. The killer starts out wearing a hockey mask, but this morphs into the Ghostface mask when he accidentally catches fire. Later he totes a chainsaw to kill someone.

* Jason Voorhees never actually used a chainsaw at any point in the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' series, his WeaponOfChoice instead being a {{machete|Mayhem}}. However, the series has featured chainsaws and other power tools at various points.
** In ''Film/FridayThe13thPart2'', Jason gets a chainsaw used on ''him'' by the FinalGirl, as noted in the page quote.
** The Turkish poster for ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIJasonLives'' uses [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-3ppxBX5WQTs/UVqTHh5uZXI/AAAAAAAADhs/VLLyi-dRE6M/s200/turkishpart6_poster.jpg this combination.]] [[CoversAlwaysLie He still uses only his trusty machete in the film.]]

** ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood'' is the only movie where Jason uses a gas-powered weapon, taking a hedge trimmer to [[GuttedLikeAFish some poor sucker's belly]].

* ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood'' is the only movie where Jason uses a gas powered weapon. Even then, it was a hedge trimmer and not a chainsaw.
* ''Film/EightLeggedFreaks'' has a brief, humorous scene where the heroine yells at the townsfolk to get ready. One of them has a chainsaw and hockey mask. Funnily enough, there's a second guy with a chainsaw right next to him- but he has a catcher's mask, instead.

While it might seem like a case of ShallowParody, even the people who know a lot about horror films use this trope, so that's not the case. It's just as likely just a CaptainErsatz of the two, since neither of them are [[PublicDomainCharacter in the public domain]]. A related trope is the SackheadSlasher, often drawing on Jason's pre-hockey mask iteration from ''Film/FridayThe13thPart2'' and combined with aspects of Leatherface's masked rural {{Hillbilly Horror|s}} cannibal archetype and a chainsaw for bonus points.
