* BrokenAesop: How many characters stood up to bullies and thugs, only to get cut down by said thugs a scene or two later? Sometimes, it's because they themselves have been guilty of being in the wrong and are having a change of heart, or they aren't wise enough to deal with their oppressor in an manipulative or calm, controlled manner. The intention is probably: Stand up to evil, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

Then, Sammo flings the thermos back at the thrower, nailing him in the head.

* CrashCourseLanding: PlayedForDrama in the season 8 finale, when an assassin hijacks 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.

* 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.

* 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. C.D.'s disadvantage is his old age and out of shape body. Powerfully subverted in the episode, "Hall of Fame," where C.D. proves he can still take down a wanted criminal.

* OnlyBadGuysCallTheirLawyers: Played very often, even with frequent criminals who usually know to keep their mouths shut and ask for an attorney. It's so badly done that even Alex--a DA who is ''not allowed'' to lie to a suspect--is often seen telling suspects that if they ask for a lawyer, any chance of a deal is off. On the show, this always makes the criminal quickly agree to cooperate. In RealLife, this is flat-out unethical conduct that would result in her being​ reprimanded.

One situation in particular is a [[KidsAreCruel kid bully]] who repeatedly gets into fights with the son of a recently deceased police officer on the way home from school.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: A mafia don who abuses his young son in order to "raise him into the family business" forces his son to climb to the top of a bookshelf ladder and orders him to jump, saying he'll catch him if he trusts him. When he jumped, the father immediately pulls away and lets his son painfully hit the floor. He then kicks his son to get him to get up before stating the "life lesson" is never to trust anybody. At the end of the episode once the Texas Rangers bust in and beat down the mooks, the mafia don loses his gun, which is picked up by his son. He immediately tries to get his son to give the gun to him, saying he can trust him. To his shock and anger, the son gives the gun to Walker, angrily shouting that he trusted his son and he betrayed it. The son simply called out that he trusted him, too, and look where that got him. The undercover ranger reminds the don that that was his own "life lesson" used against him.
