A pig nearly dies drowning as the boat tips over, but not hurt. Also a chicken almost dies choking on a rock, but otherwise is fine.

I would say Maui is 100% abusive. He is constantly putting Moana down and even pees on her. He steals Tefiti’s heart and causes destruction in doing so. Yet, all is forgiven by the end of the movie.

Maui was almost murdered by his parents and is definitely abusive towards Moana, Tefiti and others.

Sort of. Moana’s dad is the chief and he kinda gaslights Moana and all the other villagers about the bad things happening on the island as well as the tribe’s history. His reasons are understandable though, it’s not malicious.

It is brief but Maui tells Moana that his parents didn't want him after he was born and threw him into the sea to die. His tattoo of a woman throwing a baby into the water is featured here.

There's a scene fairly early in the movie where Moana ends up having to hold her breath for an extended period of time due to her boat being tipped over. She is mostly unharmed, but the scene is rather intense.

Not shown on screen, but Tamatoa mentions that he ate his own grandmother. It's probably a reference to real coconut crabs being cannibals.

Sort of; Tamatoa seemingly tortures the protagonists, Maui and Moana throughout his song. Maui and Moana both express displeasure, and it can definitely be seen as though he is torturing them.

When Moana's mom tells her the story of her dad going out on a boat once as a boy there is lightning during the brief flashback scenes.
When Moana asks the ocean for help to right her boat there is also lightning for a little bit.

Tamatoa talks to the camera twice - first during the "Shiny" musical number, when he quickly glances at the camera and advises the viewer to look up what a decapod is, and finally during the post-credits sequence, when he suggests the viewer would have more sympathy for him if he had a cute Jamaican accent (a reference to Sebastian from The Little Mermaid).
