A scene features many people screaming in a confined space as they are slowly killed. This seems analogous with many fears of suffocation so I agree with the votes.

People are drugged by a sleeping gas, which makes them cough. People choke each other as well.

In addition to the above comment, in E8 a character’s throat is slashed pretty graphically and they proceed to struggle to breathe. EDIT: In season 2 there are MANY instances of chokeholds, throats being stepped on, and at one point suffocation by mind control. Also, a character drowns and is revived via mouth to mouth. If you are sensitive to choking, watch season 2 with a friend who can warn you when to look away.

in episode 3, A character is about to be hanged for piracy, but its interrupted, then the thing he is standing on is moved accidentally and he is hanged and struggling to breathe for pretty much the rest of that particular scene, but he gets the rope is cut before he dies from it. In the next episode he has a red mark on his neck around his throat/jawline from the incident. It goes away after that. In a later episode, a flashback reveals that a character killed their own abusive father via strangling him with a rope.

Monika may reveal to the player in the third playthrough that Sayori improperly hanged herself and suffocated from the rope, instead of snapping her neck quickly like it should have.

If the player remains underwater for too long, has sand or gravel fall on them, or glitches in such a way that they are inside a solid block, they will start to suffocate.
