* {{Narm}}: In the "Lucas" two-parter: The villain growls at his wife: "You and your son will DIE." Meant to be scary, but comes across as hilarious due to the overacting.

** The most notable instance of this, however, is with the episode "Trial of [=LaRue=]", where LaRue, on trial for rape, steals the gun of a courtroom bailiff and murders several people in court. Fast forward to 2005, where in real life accused rapist [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Nichols Brian Nichols]] steals the gun of the officer assigned to escort him, and kills several people in the courtroom before making an escape attempt.

** "The Soul of Winter" has some ''eerie'' similarities to the Donald Trump campaign of the 2016 election. Especially the bit about where a Neo Nazi leader tells his followers that political correctness is supposedly stifling their free speech and how minorities are ruining the country. During this, footage of Hitler and the Holocaust are flashed on the screen; Trump has been compared to Hitler on more than one occasion.

* DeaderThanDisco: While quite popular throughout much of the '90s, the show is now mostly seen as a constant stream of {{Narm}} (heavily aided by Conan O'Brien's "Walker Texas Ranger Lever" bits).

* DeaderThanDisco: While quite popular throughout much of the '90s, largely for being one of the few places Americans could see genuine martial arts action at the time, the show is now mostly seen as a constant stream of {{Narm}} (heavily aided by Conan O'Brien's "Walker Texas Ranger Lever" bits).bits). Chuck Norris' extreme right wing politics, including his condemnation of homosexuality, haven't helped either.

And then came Chuck Norris' horrifically homophobic comments that pretty much killed any chance of the show getting any kind of respect again.

* CompleteMonster: Victor [=LaRue=] is the worst in a show that did not believe in giving villains subtlety. A lunatic who kidnaps and kills others seemingly at random, when [=LaRue=] captured Alexander Cahill amongst other hostages, he attempted to rape her. In his second episode, [=LaRue=] is released from prison and begins stalking Alex to drive her insane. He attempts to rape Alex again before he is arrested. In his third and final episode, [=LaRue=] gets a gun at his trial and murders his own lawyer, the judge and the bailiff, taking the courtroom hostage. While waiting for Walker to arrive, he presides over the court as a “judge.” In his insane whims, he orders a divorced couple to get back together for their child, but when the child contradicts [=LaRue=], he decides to “reopen” the hearing, planning to [[WouldHurtAChild murder the kid]]. [=LaRue=] kills his other ally when the man [[EvenEvilHasStandards is disgusted by this]]. Finally, he attempts to rape Alex for the third time before Walker busts in and guns him down.

** The hate groups, especially in "Soldiers of Hate", where the group planned to bomb an entire community center full of men, women, and children because they are "a bunch of inferiors and traitors who dare to associate with said inferiors". Luckily, Walker and company beat their asses down before they could murder the whole community.
** Three spoiled rich guys who beat up homeless people and record it commit arson on a building full of families, why? Because they were '''bored'''. Walker managed to help rescue a child in the burning building before hunting down the arsonists and beating their asses in.
