** A drug cartel leader, after getting his ass thoroughly stomped by Walker, tries to cheat by pulling out a knife and throwing it at him. Walker anticipated the dirty move and in one fluid motion catches the knife and throws it back right into the cartel leader's chest, killing him.



* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Walker's dilemma in "Final Justice", when he encounters a racist criminal gone free [[spoiler: who helped murder his parents. Walker spares the man's life, [[GoodIsNotNice but still beats him like a bass drum and brings him in for arrest]]]].
** After Trent beats up an abusive husband who broke into his wife's home to kill her, the wife attempts to kill him herself to finally be free of him. Trent managed to talk er out of killing the husband no matter how much he deserves it. While it was going on, said abusive husband recovered and pulled a gun on them. [[TemptingFate He mockingly taunts them for their mercy and spitefully asks Trent what he's going to do now]]. [[RageBreakingPoint Cue an angry Trent easily disarming the fatass and beating him unconscious]].

* PoliceAreUseless: Often, anyone who isn't part of the main cast. An especially bad example is the federal agent who botches the rescue of Sydney and Alex when they're abducted by a drug cartel. First, the idiot sends the drug dealer's brother to him ''before'' the dealer returns the two women. When the dealer of course double-crosses them and keeps the women, the agent can only sputter about how they have to "negotiate". A thoroughly fed-up Walker nearly throttles him before storming off to rescue the women himself. Trivette and Gage mockingly apply this to themselves when said agent demanded disciplinary action on Walker for "attempted assault on a police officer", they simply said they saw nothing.

* 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.

* CatchAndReturn: In the crossover with ''Martial Law'', while Sammo Law was fighting a mook, another mook throws a metal thermos at him. Sammo turns and catches the thermos one-handed, then proceeds to beat the mook he was fighting with it before throwing him into the throwing mook. Then, Sammo flings the thermos back at the thrower, nailing him in the head.

* GoodCopBadCop: Walker and Trivette. Who plays which depends on the situation- or who's more pissed off at the time. When Gage and Sydney were introduced, they both played Bad Cop by hard-balling arrested baddies.

* 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 one-shot psychic. Also played painfully straight in the episode "Behind the Badge," where Walker is in the spotlight for a documentary show and Trivette wants to impress them. Too bad it happens to be the one day crime is in a dry spell.


Added DiffLines:

* AnyoneCanDie: Don't get attached to ''anyone'' in this show that isn't one of the main characters.
