** Larue holds a courtroom hostage and demands for Walker. He gets him, when Walker forcefully breaks down the doors and coldly shoots him dead, finally having been pushed too far.



** In one episode where a delusional man kidnaps CD's niece and forces her into a Bonnie and Clyde fantasy of his, he goes around terrorizing people. When he finally gets cornered and disarmed by Walker. He tries a last ditch effort to stab him with a hidden knife. [[BackstabBackfire It doesn't work]], and Walker takes him out with a single backfist to his face. Wimp.

* MilesGloriosus: A criminal leader tries to force Walker to leave by attacking him, but gets easily shoved off, triggering the surrounding mooks to attack Walker en masse. Walker easily takes down the mooks as the leader shouts and shoves more mooks to get Walker, but no matter how many he pushed towards him, Walker would beat the crap out of them. When the leader tries forcing more mooks to attack Walker, the last mook then shoves HIM forward, telling the leader to get Walker himself. Walker dares him to try and make a move after being put on the spot, then gives a disgusted glare when the leader does nothing. He summed it up in one word.
--> Walker: "Wimp."

* ActorIsTheTitleCharacter: Chuck Norris' credit reads "Chuck Norris is Walker: Texas Ranger".



* CastingGag / CelebrityParadox: In "The Moscow Connection", 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 what book this is, and Trivette says it is ''The Secret Power Within''. Walker follows this question by asking 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 ([[FunnyAneurysmMoment kinda sad in hindsight because both actors are now dead]]) 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 pleases Walker. Good thing since, of course...



* YouLookFamiliar: Actor Marshall Teague makes no less than ''six'' appearances on the show as entirely different characters, all of which are the main villains of each story, usually disguised as different people under heavy makeup. On top of that, he plays the main villain of both the first ''[[BookEnds and]]'' last episodes of the series. Not only this, but he also plays an [[{{Expy}} ancestor]] of his character in the GrandFinale, making him the proud owner of '''seven''' different character roles. And he even plays a major villain in "Trial By Fire", bumping his appearances up to '''''eight!'''''

* EvenEvilHasStandards: After Trent and Carlos arrest a pedophile kidnapper, the inmates beat him to within an inch of his life once they found out why he was put in prison. In another episode, when a gang of criminals takes a group of nuns hostage, at least one of them is extremely uncomfortable with this. The leader tells him to shut up--and then two seconds later, himself displays this trope by smacking one of the other members who has started make sleazy advances to one of the postulates.

One especially notable case is when a crook named Jackson learns his boss plans to sell a weapon they stole to some people who plan to use it for terrorism, he tries to stop it only to be killed.

* {{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. The show usually had grittier plots beforehand, but as it went on, the episodes began focusing on young kids or teens staying on the right path. CBS and the writers caught wind of the growing kid audience and wanted to reassure the parents the kids weren't watching flat, abhorrent violence.

* Basically anybody who starts a fight with any of the rangers. Aside from being highly stupid in the first place, as assaulting a police officer is a serious felony, it's even more so considering the martial arts skills that they all possess.

** when a mook refused to tell Walker about the big bad's next plan, the undercover cop decides to take over. Ironically, the cop was being interrogated the same way by the same mook not long ago, but managed to resist. Once the tables have turned and the cop threatens to shock the mook with a cattle prod, the mook quickly caves in and spilled his guts. Pathetically, he didn't even get shocked yet.

* WouldHitAGirl: Walker May be chivalrous, but there are times when he is smart enough to make exceptions when the situation demands it, like when he double palm strikes an armed woman trying to shoot him, then the time he backfists another when she was trying to kill Alex and her friend with a time bomb.
