While it might seem like a case of pure carelessness, 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 common reference of a SlasherMovie serial killer: a big guy wielding a chainsaw and wearing a hockey mask. Enormously common in parodies and tributes of the genre, which makes this a DeadUnicornTrope.

This is largely a CompositeCharacter between two of the most famous SlasherMovie killers: Jason Voorhees of the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' series and Leatherface of ''Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre'' series.

* Nike's infamous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLhdE1DiebU chainsaw commercial]] from the 2000 Olympics featured a villain with a chainsaw, and with a [[Main/WhiteMaskOfDoom white plastic mask]] more like Michael Myers' from ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}''. [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/nike-chainsaw-attack-ad-pulled/ Contemporary news reports]] when the ad was pulled described it as a hockey mask, however, because this trope created that expectation.

* ''Film/PoliceAcademy 2'' 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.
