In the film, Gideon punches Ramona in the face and kicks her down a staircase during the final fight. In the Novel, he stabs her through the chest with a sword and leaves her bleeding on the floor, although it should be noted that in the Novel version, Ramona was not dating him at this point (not since before the series started), whereas in the film version she is.

“The Glow” from the novels is basically gaslighting being very literally weaponised. This is replaced in the film with a mind control chip.

The film suggests that Scott has a bad relationship with alcohol (as a coping strategy), and we see him get drunk once.

Kind of? In the movie version of the twin fight, their instruments summons a dragon made of particles that’s killed, although it’s moreso something akin to a light effect rather than a real dragon. Overall YMMV. This doesn’t happen in the novel version.

Most of the violence against female characters is in the context of being willing enemy combatants, but there is one point in the film version where Ramona is punched In the face by Gideon despite not being involved in the fight as a combatant at all.

in regards to the previous comment: a 22 year old dating a 17 year old is understandably potentially triggering, but it is not pedophilia. as well, there is at no point any sexual activity between these characters, consensual or otherwise. The act of dating is not in itself a sexual assault. please respect the definition of relevant terms when classifying trigger warnings

One of the major plot elements and themes that’s so unavoidable and integral with the main story and characters that it’s impossible to avoid. Scott, Ramona, Envy and Todd are all guilty of this, not to mention several other minor characters in the novels. While it is very clearly the point of the story that cheating is wrong and everyone who does so is a bad person, If you are sensitive to stuff like this, then avoid anything Scott Pilgrim related.

Aside from a joke involving “Vegan Police” (which is more so a joke about how judgemental other vegans are about how rigorously you stick to the diet rather than anything to do with the actual law enforcement police), the police are basically a non-existent entity in the story and do not appear to stop any of the fights that occur.

[Spoilers] No one is (intentionally) misgendered. There are a few moments early on where Scott references Ramona's "ex-boyfriends" and she quickly corrects him to the gender-neutral "exes", because one of her exes is a lesbian woman but Scott does not know that context.

Also, there's a transphobic one-liner in the final fight scene where someone says "let's both be girls" before kneeing a man in the crotch.

Debatable, but certainly none directly. [Spoilers] The final antagonist is played by a part-Jewish actor, and is in the film a major figure in the music industry and in orchestrating the plot against Scott. So while there are no directly antisemitic tropes I can see how this implication could be upsetting.

R*****d is used once. Used significantly more times in the novels, mainly by Kim. Knives parents are against Knives dating outside of her race (that of which being Chinese). In the novels this goes as far as Knives father stalking and attacking Scott.

Not in the movie. In the novels, After Ramona disappears, Scott is forced to couch surf for several weeks as he is locked out of her apartment and lost his keys.

A big part of Ramona’s character is having no idea who she wants to be as person, where she wants to go in life or what her personality is or should be. The constant hair colour and style changes are a not-so-subtle metaphor for this. In the novels, this is delved into more with the other characters too like Scott and Kim.

In the movie there’s only a few mild cuts. In the novels, The final fight with Gideon is far more bloody than the movie version and all prior fights in the novels. Scott is slashed with a sword several times, causing large blood sprays. Scott and Ramona are both stabbed through the chest with a sword with a big blood spray shooting from their chest, though both survive. Additionally in a bonus story, Kim daydreams herself stabbing her roommate death and leaving her in a pool of blood. No gore in either the film or book.

There is plenty of physical and comedic violence, but no guns are used.
