Indy, the dog, briefly appears in 1912. The rest of the movie takes place in 1935, so its death is only implied.

Indy expresses concerns about his emotionally neglectful childhood. "Indy Sr" is dismissive of these concerns while repeatedly behaving in a way that corroborates them.

One scene during Indy's childhood where his father won't talk to him until he's counted to twenty in Greek. Present day scenes include his father slapping him in the face as a punishment, refusing to use his son's preferred name, and the line "you left as soon as you were getting interesting" which seems to imply he feels justified in neglecting "uninteresting" children.

(see section on abusive parents) Indy's father never comes around. By the end of the movie, he's still disrespecting his son, and Indy replies "yes sir" instead of arguing.

SPOILERS: While in Venice, Indiana and Elsa are watched and later chased by a secret organization who are descendants of protectors intending to keep the location of the Grail secret. After Indiana proves his disinterest in the Grail outside of searching for his father, they do not pursue him beyond this point (but they do engage in battle with the Nazi forces later in the film).

Elsa tricks Donovan by deliberately choosing the wrong cup to get him out of the way. She smiles and nods at Indy when Donovan picks it up. She knows Indy will find the right cup and wants Indy and her to have it .

The way snake, rats, and debatably horses are handled by the cast within the film implies they were, but not severely. The scene where the tunnel of rats is burned used props instead of live animals.

Numerous scenes with horseback riding, corraled animals and live chicken in a market. Around 1h25 there are horses involved in a fight. One of them is brought to the ground in an attempt to subdue the rider. The same horse is put under distress shortly after, 1h31m should be safe.

There is a scene where Indy and his dad are being chased by a Nazi plane, after they fly away from the zeppelin, where the dad makes seagulls fly up from the beach. The Nazi plane gets hit by the seagulls. Not bloody or excessive but the seagulls crash into windshield and get caught in the propellers.

In the prologue, Indiana falls into a snake pit on a circus train whilst fleeing tomb raiders. It's very much traumatic for him (and explains the origin of the character's fear of snakes in the previous films).

While it may skirt the definition of "assault", the antagonistic foreplay between Indiana and Elsa in Venice might be a bit cringe-worthy by today's standards.

Surprisingly, there isn't actually any main jump-scares. The sudden Loud gunshots is the only close factor to it.

Total Jump Scare Count: 1 (1 Minor)

(Minor) (1:43:05) (Henry gets shot by Walter - Although we see it coming, a loud gunshot may be startling for sensitive viewers)

Not strictly speaking; however, the supernatural forces that protect the Grail and prevent it from leaving its resting place cause the temple it resides within to collapse when one of the antagonists tries to remove it from the premises.

The Holy Grail is destroyed along with its temple. Of note that this film is the origin of the “it belongs in a museum” quote that the trigger description condemns. It’s not used to justify colonialism in this specific case, though, it’s used to justify taking a Spanish cross left on American soil from a rich white man who wants it in his private collection

The main antagonists are Nazis and thus there are many scenes that portray Nazi imagery. One scene takes place at a book burning, where in the protagonist disguises himself as a soldier to infiltrate and steal from them. Hitler (portrayed by an actor) is shown and briefly interacts with him.

[SPOILERS]
Elsa Shneider, the protagonist's love interest is revealed to be a Nazi and becomes an antagonist.

The Nazi antagonists, including Elsa, are defeated by the end of the film.

Sallah is unfortunately played by a white actor instead of an Egyptian one but aside from Dial of Destiny, this probably has the least misrepresentation out of the series. However, there are other stereotypes of Middle Eastern people at play here (including a violent cult/terror group who wear fez hats and keffiyeh (the latter playing into the “violent Muslim” trope although the cult is actually Christian), led by a man who calls himself “a messenger of God”). A Turkish bazaar is implicitly “backwards” in one scene. A villain at the start is the “evil disabled person” trope (he uses a cane).

Religion is significant in every Indiana Jones film aside from Dial of Destiny but it's probably at its most prominent here. The whole plot is about Indy setting off to retrieve the Holy Grail from a Crusader. The film also begins with a separate plotline where Indy tries to take a Spanish crucifix from a millionaire. Henry Sr. is saved with holy water taken from the true Holy Grail, while the main villain is killed by water from a false one. There is a brief discussion about whether Indy seeks the Grail for his glory or Jesus'. A Middle Eastern terrorist cult is present but it's a Christian one rather than the Islamist stereotype.

Mostly implicit; Indiana and Elsa get intimate after a heated fight. In a later scene, there's a winking implication that Elsa also had a short-lived relationship with Indiana's father. "She talks in her sleep."

Elsa is sexually objectified in the implicit sex scene and debatably in a few other bits before it’s revealed she’s a N*zi.

SPOILER: Mostly happy. Elsa falls to her doom despite Indiana trying to save her but rides off to the sunset with the comfort that he was able to reconcile with the father he did end up saving by the film's end and the Grail is forever out of the hands of the Nazi.
