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.

* Flirted with and then subverted in the ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' Lumberjack Sketch. The singer dreams of being a lumberjack ... and CampGay at the same time. His girl {{lampshade| hanging}}s the discrepancy, crying out, "Oh Bevis, and I thought you were so rugged!"

* In the computer "card" game ''UrbanRivals'', the first boss card you get in your collection is a lumberjack. He starts looking like the stereotype and hulks out when leveling up. Also adds bonus damage to the whole team.
* ''[[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper Um Jammer Lammy]]'' has Paul Chuck, a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw-wielding]] beaver lumberjack, though the "mighty" part of the trope is a bit lost due to his intentionally goofy voice.
