** Walker mounts an enormous kill streak throughout the series and more or less creams ''every'' thug he encounters 80% of the time. The only times Walker really took serious beatings were a handful- against Phillipe Brouchard, an international master assassin, the Viper, more or less the equivalent of Brouchard, Caleb Hooks, a Vietnam veteran, Victor La Rue, who went as far as to poison Walker through scorpions to dull his reflexes, Emile Lavocat, [[spoiler: CD's murderer]], Boris, the only foe to ever genuinely bruise up Walker... because he had the loaded advantage of ''superhuman strength.'', and the Chairman, the BigBad of few episodes from the last season.

* DesignatedHero: In RealLife, about half the things that Walker and company do would get them in serious trouble. The cops have beaten the crap out of various villains at the slightest provocation, and Alex has repeatedly flat out lied to criminals--"If you talk to a lawyer, all chances of a deal are off." This is always portrayed as the absolutely right thing to do and the team made out to be saints.

** 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.

* {{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 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.
