Lumberjacks are commonly used to represent strength, man's dominance over [[TheOtherRainforest nature]], and the idea that [[AnAxeToGrind axes are pretty cool]]. In fiction they tend to be {{Badass}}, often to the point of TestosteronePoisoning. Either that, or to sell paper towels.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'': Rufus Ruffcut is a stereotypical Canadian lumberjack. His car reflects this since it's made from logs, with circular saws as wheels.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'' once had to save their woods from a group of singing lumberjacks. When not chopping down trees, the men would eat tall stacks of pancakes and drink black coffee.

Because people will expect a lumberjack to be [[RatedMForManly manly]], they [[DoubleStandard are almost always men]]. They tend to dress like a stereotypical 19th century PaulBunyan type with [[HollywoodDressCode a flannel shirt]], [[{{Hunk}} rugged outdoorsman look]], a BadassBeard, and [[MusclesAreMeaningful large muscles]] developed from years of swinging an axe. The much rarer female lumberjack will either be a ButchLesbian and PlayedForLaughs, or look exactly like [[LittleMissBadass a normal girl]] wielding a giant axe, with her lumberjack heritage used to {{Handwave}} her insane SuperStrength.

* PaulBunyan is the UrExample, having originated in Canada in the early 19th century. There are many myths surrounding him, the most famous of which is that the 10,000 Lakes of Minnesota were formed by him and his sidekick, [[SpeciesSurname Babe the Blue Ox]], as they walked around in a blizzard. It's worth noting that most of the Paul Bunyan myth, including everything about Paul being a giant with a giant pet ox, was actually the invention of a 20th century copywriter who spun Paul Bunyan into a mascot for a logging company.
