These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternate Character Interpretation: In the original legends, Paul Bunyan indiscriminately chopped down every tree that crossed his field of vision. Here, he's presented as being more noble, only "borrowing" from the land what is needed.
Unlike the other two, Paul comes off more as the man behind the legend than the mythic figure. Otherwise he'd be a giant.
