When Walker grabs him, he threatens to include assault charges as well.

** In another episode, Sydney and Gage arrive at someone's home to ask if his brother (their murder suspect) is there. The man says no and tries to close the door on them, only for Gage to push it open and force his way into the apartment--without a warrant, and against the man's clearly expressed refusal to let them in.

** Amusingly, a few season one episodes accidentally reversed it so it says "Wealker, Texas Ranger is Chuck Norris."

Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

** The various villains, of course, as if to drive home just how evil they are.

** 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.

** Larue holds a courtroom hostage and demands for Walker. Walker, taunting that he's too scared to face him. He gets him, when Walker forcefully breaks down the doors [[spoiler: and coldly shoots him dead, finally having been pushed too far.far]].



* PayEvilUntoEvil: Walker and the Rangers usually try to avert this, being proper authorities and all. Most of the kills they make were out of necessity/self-defense. Played straight by Walker in "Trial Of Larue" when Walker [[spoiler: wordlessly guns the bastard down, killing him, putting him out of ''everyone else's'' miseries]]. CD and Trivette's comments in the aftermath says it all.
--> '''CD''': "You know, Jimmy, in all my years, I never enjoyed [[spoiler: seeing a dead body. This time, I ''do''.]]"
--> '''Trivette''': "I hear that, Big Dog."



* TooDumbToLive: A lot of the villains of the week, especially the ones who have pressed Walker's BerserkButton. Special mentions to Larue, who was too StupidEvil to live as he pressed Walker's BerserkButton THREE TIMES. First two times, Walker brutally kicked his ass in. The third time, Walker skips the ass-kicking entirely and simply shoots the [[AssholeVictim asshole dead]].

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 Creator/ChuckNorris.
