''Walker, Texas Ranger'' was a combination of of martial arts and modern Western, starring ChuckNorris as Texas Ranger Cordell Walker. Other characters include Cordell's best friend and partner James "Jimmy" Trivette (Clarence Gilyard), Assistant District Attorney Alex Cahill (Sheree J. Wilson), who also serves as his love interest, and veteran Ranger C.D. Parker (the late Noble Willingham).

Subject to much MemeticMutation in the 2000s. This is thanks, at least partially, to Conan O'Brien, who used to play [[{{Narm}} unintentionally humorous]] clips from the series on his show by way of the "Walker Texas Ranger Lever". As well as the general {{Memetic Badass}}ness of ChuckNorris.
----
!!Features the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: Ranger Sydney Cooke from the last two seasons. She hits exactly as hard as her heavier-built male counterparts.
* ActionSeries
* ADayInTheLimelight: Usually Walker is the undisputed hero. In "A Deadly Vision", he is almost absent and we see Trivette and CD run around solving the case together, along with a oneshot psychic.
* AllJustADream: Blood Diamonds. ''Big time.''
* AlwaysMurder: Most episodes revolve around a murder mystery, usually because some poor schmuck was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got capped for being nosy.
* {{Anticlimax}}: Given the amount of law-breaking, cop-fighting kickboxers Texas seems to have, when a villain is arrested with relative ease, it can feel like this.
* BadassBeard: Guess who?
* [[BadassArmy Badass Police Force]]: Texas Rangers.
* BigDamnHeroes
* BigBrotherIsWatching: And the theme song says so; "When the eye of the Ranger is upon you, any wrong you do he's gonna see; when you're in Texas, look behind you, 'cause that's where the ranger's gonna be." An Inversion of course because BigBrotherIsYourFriend in this show. But it is a creepy song.
** It probably was supposed to be creepy. To the evildoers, yeah.
** Of course, it's the titular Ranger (or at best the people behind him) who gets to say who ''is'' an evildoer in the first place. Really, the song's lyrics are a prime example for UnfortunateImplications -- the idea may well have been to paint the ranger as the inevitable long arm of the law who always gets the bad guys in the end, but the way it comes across is definitely more "stranger, if you don't ''like'' the idea of being stalked by our all-seeing rangers who know wrong from right better than you anyway, don't come to Texas because we don't want your kind 'round here".
* BilledAboveTheTitle: ChuckNorris
* BrokenAesop: How many characters stood up to bullies and thugs, only to get cut down by said thugs a scene or two later?
** Not so broken: Stand up to evil, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.
* BulletproofHumanShield: Played ridiculously straight in an episode with a young woman who has been taken hostage and placed in front of a shotgun set to go off at a certain time. Walker finds the villain's hideout, beats him up, and drags him in front of the gun just in time to protect the girl and make the bad guy take the blast. Of a ''shotgun''. True to form, only the bad guy is killed, when in real life, the shot probably would have gone through him, Walker, and the poor girl.
* BulletProofVest
* BusCrash Noble Willingham left the show mid season 7, and in the series finale the {{Big Bad}} says that he killed his character.
** Technically he was said to have died earlier (the beginning of the last season?) seemingly from natural causes, and in the finale the villain claims the murder, prompting a second autopsy that confirms cause of death was due to poison.
* ButtMonkey: Trivette.
* CaliforniaDoubling: One of the most notable aversions, filmed on location in Texas.
* CastingGag: In one particular episode, at the very beginning, Trivette reads out a piece of literature describing in an almost poetic way of a stand off between two men. Walker questions who wrote it, and is told that Chuck Norris had. He simply shrugs and claims to have never heard of him, earning a track record telling by Trivette of Chuck's achievements in martial arts. Again, Walker says he never heard of him--yet corrects Trivette when the latter makes a mistake in listing Norris' accomplishments.
** In Season 7's "Code of the West", the four main characters talk about who would play them in a movie. Trivette get Denzel Washington, Alex gets Helen Hunt, C.D. gets PaulNewman and Walker gets...Chuck Norris. When Walker complains they got Oscar winners, Trivette points out that Chuck was a six time World Karate Champion, which please Walker. Good thing since, of course...
* CastTheExpert: TV reporter Clarice Tinsley plays a TV reporter.
* ChuckNorris. What a [[SarcasmMode surprise.]]
* ClintSquint: Could've easily been called "The Norris Squint".
* CowboyCop: Taken literally, and a key element of the show's premise, though he isn't usually rebellious or rule-breaking.
* CrashCourseLanding: PlayedForDrama in the season 8 finale, when an assassin hijack's the plane that newlyweds Alex and Walker boarded to Paris and ends up not only killing both pilots, but destroys part of the controls with his high-caliber bullets smashing into the systems. Walker is forced to radio in a mayday to flight control, which prompts them to give him specific instructions to land the plane, with Alex's help, of course. Said landing is actually not clean; Walker creams a billboard, high-rise parking complex, and the cars inside on the way down to the airport runway because he flew too low. Fortunately, he lands that bird on the money in the end.
** Later becomes a CallBack and ChekhovsSkill for Walker during the Chairman 4-parter in season 9. Gage and Sydney badger an accountant for a rich scumbag into testifying against him and board a private flight back to Fort Worth. However, the Chairman's lackey, the "Wizard," has hacked into the plane's controls and proceeds to depressurize the cabins, knocking everyone out, while cutting off the radio contact and opening up the fuel tanks to help incite a horrific crash. Gabe is lucky enough to get an oxygen mask on, but has no clue on how to fly the plane, but luckily, he has a mobile phone on him to speak with Walker, and Walker has a splendid memory, telling Gabe exactly what to do to land the plane since his own brush with fate- which ends successfully.
* CrazyPrepared: In one episode, Walker, in his pickup truck, is being chased by a bad guy in an attack helicopter. How does Walker deal with this? By pulling out an ''M72 LAW rocket launcher from the back of his truck.'' There's no explanation offered; he's just that kind of crazy.
* CrossoverCosmology: Despite the heavy Christian undertones of the show, there's also episodes that involve other types of spiritual and cultural magic and mythology.
* CurbStompBattle: Often at the beginning of the show, or when C.D. Parker was a target, the bad guys would brutally beat up hapless individuals to try to impose their will, or to attempt to intimidate always unsuccessfully Walker and his Rangers.
* CutAndPasteNote
* {{Disneyfication}}: The series starting around "Brainchild" in Season 5. The episode with the kid and his supercomputer best friend, with a script that would have been more at home in a Disney flick.
* DistressedDamsel (Alex Cahill, nearly an example of OnceAnEpisode)
* DrowningPit: "No Way Out" centers around this, as Trivette, and whoda guessed, ''[[SeenItAMillionTimes Alex]]'', get kidnapped and imprisoned by Caleb Hooks in a water tank at a sewage treatment facility, which gradually fills up and threatens to drown them, while they reminisce on happier times in hopes Walker will save them a la ClipShow style.
* DynamicEntry: Chuck Norris flying kicks himself into so many scenes one would be forgiven for thinking this to be his primary mode of travel.
* EveryCarIsAPinto: Amusingly, once, after the villain flies through the back of a pickup truck carrying water cooler tanks, the WATER explodes.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His roundhouse kick is a vital part of the Chuck Norris jokes.
** That's actually ... wait for it.. a spinning wheel kick. Roundhouse kicks involve no spinning at all. Chuck Norris studied Tang Soo Do.
* {{Expy}}: All the characters in the initial Hayes Cooper story; later stories use the actors in different roles.
* GoodCopBadCop
* GoodGunsBadGuns: Strangely applied even to cars.
* HandyCuffs
* HelloAttorney: Alex Cahill
* HeroOfAnotherStory: There was an additional pair of Texas Rangers that showed up when the plot required more police be involved, but their names escape me.
** Previously stated [[ActionGirl Action Girl]] Sydney Cooke and Francis Gage, whom, amazingly, after being added to the cast got just as many or more story lines as the Originals - Trivette, Alex and Walker.
* HoldingOutForAHero
* IdenticalGrandson
* IndianBurialGround
* InvincibleHero: Most "fights" in the series are short, one-sided beatdowns, though this is partly due to most of the criminal population of Texas having "punch cop" as their default response to feeling threatened.
* ItNeverGetsAnyEasier
* KickTheDog: The villains tend to do half a dozen of these before the episodes are over.
* KungFoley
* MagicalNativeAmerican
* NewOldWest
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight (all the damn time)
* OhMrGrant
* OrWasItADream
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Sons of Thunder.
** Averted and played straight. To elaborate, the two-parter Sons of Thunder spends an absorpent amount of time focusing on new characters Trent Malloy, a Mini-Walker {{expy}} that DoesntLikeGuns, his best friend Carlos, and Trent's troubled family. Despite the set up, Trent and Carlos continue to appear on the show afterwards to help the main characters. It wasn't until two years later that a [[SonsOfThunder spinoff]] did happen. It didn't last long, and the characters were [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome never seen or mentioned again]] in spite of Walker lasting for several years after the fact.
* {{Ranger}}
* RapidFireTyping
* RealityIsUnrealistic: Walker is clearly White, so why are they trying to get the audience to believe that he's half Native Am--wait, what do you mean Chuck Norris is half-Cherokee?
* RememberTheNewGuy: The series finale revolves around a gang of criminals, that we had never seen before, breaking out of prison and taking revenge on Walker who supposedly arrested them around the time the first season would have taken place.
* RepeatCut (Walker's signature roundhouse kick, often in slow motion, no less)
* RoundhouseKick (Walker's famous finishing move)
* SaltAndPepper: Walker and Trivette.
* SniffSniffNom ([[CrowningMomentOfFunny "A plane crashed here."]])
* SpyCatsuit
* StuffedIntoTheFridge
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer
* TooPowerfulToLive: The Chairman.
* TurnInYourBadge: Trivette is temporarily suspended due to accidentally shooting a child [[spoiler:but it turns out the shot came from the criminal.]]
* VerySpecialEpisode
* VisionsOfAnotherSelf: The SeriesFinale has parallel stories of the modern day characters and a set of Old West counterparts.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: One episode where Cordell Walker was supposed to rescue a girl who was trapped in a Christian cult camp ended up having the last several minutes of it focused on Walker rescuing Alex Cahill from the cult camp, leaving the intended rescue target's status in question.
* WorldOfBadass
* WouldntHitAGirl: There are rarely female villains presumably because of this, and if it comes to a fight, [[DesignatedGirlFight another woman has to do it]]. That said, the moments where Chuck does indulge in this showed up quite frequently on ''Conan'', such as the third one in [[http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=558303429 this segment]].
** However, this trope has not applied to villains, as there are many episodes where the bad guys freely and remorselessly strike women at will, only to get it from Walker and Trivette in the end.

* HeyItsThatGuy: In the last season episode "Medieval Crimes," you'll spot Josh Holloway (aka Sawyer from {{Lost}}) as part of a cheesy Ren-Faire restaurant gang that robs jewelry stores. It was one of his first credited TV roles.

** In the two-part episode "Lucas", the titular AIDS-suffering child is played by [[TheSixthSense Haley Joel Osment]].
** In the episode "Right Man, Wrong Time", [[MaryElizabethMcGlynn Mary Elizabeth McGlynn]] portrays country singer Merilee Summers. This is [[SilentHill a demonstration of]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome her singing voice]], and this is one of a few live-action acting roles [[GhostInTheShell prior]] [[OutlawStar to]] [[CodeGeass her]] [[CowboyBebop voice]] [[WolfsRain acting]] [[DigimonTamers career]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: CamClarke is everywhere in this show. Usually he's just a background voice on the radio or TV, but occasionally he dubs over other characters when they're off screen. One time he actually dubbed a villain who was ''on screen,'' which created a huge dissonance the next time you hear the guy and he has a voice that actually looks like it would come out of him.

** In Season 7's "Code of the West", the four main characters talk about who would play them in a movie. Trivette get Denzel Washington, Alex gets Helen Hunt, C.D. gets Paul Newman and Walker gets...Chuck Norris. When Walker complains they got Oscar winners, Trivette points out that Chuck was a six time World Karate Champion, which please Walker. Good thing since, of course...
