Kind of. There is a Lion in the series that did die at some point before the beginning of the show. You don't see him die but he is resurrected, also before the show starts.

In the episode “Onion Gang”, Steven, Onion, and Onion’s friends have a bug race. If one has sensitivities to seeing bugs crawling, you might want to skip this part of the episode. At the end of the race, Onion’s friends tell Steven to squash the bug he got, as it won. His particular bug is a Stag Beetle. No bug is actually squashed as Steven refuses to squash it. Onion comes by Steven’s house later to return the bug. Also, some Corrupted Gems look like bugs. The Centipeedle, one of these monsters, is very millipede-like. The Heaven Beetle and Earth Beetle look exactly like beetles, however, unlike the Centipeedle, who is sometimes seen attacking the Crystal Gems, the Heaven and Earth Beetle aren’t hostile and are calm towards the Gems

In various episodes Steven has living catfingers, who try to overtake his body. He „kills“ those cats with water though.

Some see Jasper as having been addicted to being Malachite, but that's more analogous to something like Stockholm syndrome.

more so punishments than torture. in a very non-brutal you-can-show-your-kids way. someone is attached to another through fusing and is brought to the bottom of the ocean. lapis was trapped in a mirror until she was brought out.

No eyes are shown being injured, mutilated, or removed. The closest thing is one Gem who is already missing an eye, but it's far from graphic since she isn't human. There's a shallow monochrome dent where her eye used to be.

Greg's leg is injured and presumably broken in "Ocean Gem", with no visible wound. The following episode "House Guest" centers around him recovering from this injury, and he is fully healed by the end of the episode.

The gems fight various monsters, sometimes by slicing off their limbs. It is not graphic, and the monsters always "poof" then. They are not killing the monsters. Also, when broken gem shards reform, they form as disembodied arms and legs.

Kind of. Pearl and Rose were implied to have been in a relationship, and it is unclear if they still were when Rose began dating Greg. Pearl is very jealous during flashbacks showing Rose and Greg’s relationship.

A teenager dies and is revived a bit later in the episode. Seeing as a teenager is not yet an adult, it constitutes as a child dying.

Steven is dressed as a clown for the birthday episode but it is not in the context of a scary clown like IT. He has innocent intentions.

In "Change your Mind" (S4E29), the antagonist possessed the 3 crystal gems, 2 diamonds, and another pearl has been. For the crystal gems and diamonds, the whole process is shown, with their color and individuality being lost, and is shot like a horror film.

No, however, Gem Destabilizers use an electric-like current that can poof Gems. This electric-like current is much like the powers of Yellow Diamond. The current can also be used as a barrier, as seen in “Jailbreak”

No, however, the Gem Injectors at the Prime and Beta Kindergartens only slightly resemble needles/syringes. For those sensitive only to objects that look like or are needles the Gem Injectors won’t trigger any sensitivities. However, if one is sensitive to objects that can remind one of a needle than you might want to keep an eye out on the person with the sensitivities to see how they react to seeing one

In order for Steven to be born his mother had to give up her body. She knew she had to give up her body and did it anyway.

An episode is dedicated to helping Connie deal with negative thoughts. It’s a happy ending.

During the second half of the last season, Steven is constantly ignored and gaslit by the Diamonds, intentionally or not, who refuse to call him by his name or correct pronouns until the final episode. It may be uncomfortable for some viewers, due to its similarities to the situation of a transgender person being misgendered by their family.

No character is confirmed to be autistic, but some are coded as such. The only instance that vaguely resembles autism-specific abuse is in "Too Short to Ride" where an autistic-coded character's tablet, which is implied to be her comfort item, is forcibly taken from her and thrown away.

In the episode Friend Ship" (s2 ep15) Pearl and Garnet are trapped in a shrinking enclosed pit which eventually becomes almost small enough to crush them. However, they do get out of it before any (physical) damage is done.

One character, Onion, attempts to show Steven a videotape of his birth. This is not shown onscreen, but there is a few seconds of audio before the video is turned off.

Steven’s mother Rose Quartz died offscreen from giving birth to Steven, however, that doesn’t necessarily count. Other than that, there are no instances of a pregnant women dying

It's not against real minorities, but there's lots of disparaging language against fusions and other “off-colors”. Gems are even called “defective”. I don't think it's really a big thing, but it's close enough to real hate speech to be off-putting at times. It can be really close to real world ableism at times, but these views are always presented as a bad thing. In any case, i think it's close enough to be wary, especially if you have triggers relating to this.

The only characters that die in the show are Rose Quartz and, for a brief moment, Lars, before being resurrected. Rose Quartz is an alien, but she has pale peach skin and is thus white-coded. Lars is Filipino, not black, and he is immediately brought back to life.

While not among humans, multiple Gems are subject to this. These behaviors are treated as harmful and are not encouraged.

Steven crossdresses in "Sadie's Song" and no joke is made of it. Quite refreshing.

The show is extremely body positive. In an early episode, Steven and his human friends start working out (lifting weights, mild calisthenics), but that's because Steven wants to be strong like one of the Gem fusions.

A character named Renaldo is a conspiracy theorist and talks about “snake people” and how they take over the government and control people, which is similar to the antisemitic “lizard people” conspiracy theory irl. However he gives up on this theory after all the evidence points to it not being true, after a full episode talks about disproving his weird theories. Other than that, there are no direct antisemitic implications.

Rose Quartz was strongly implied to be bisexual and dies permanently before the events of the show, and her girlfriend Pearl grieves her, but it should be noted many characters are LGBT and continue to survive and be happy in love.

Connie’s father is a private security guard. He protects property but is actually pretty impotent. Connie thinks her dad’s job is very cool and goes along to do it with him one episode. He is not the police but definitely tries to act like a cop.

Stevonnie is occasionally called she, but only by people who don't know better, and it's very rare. In recent episodes, however, Steven has been called she multiple times, as well as called by what could be interpreted as a deadname, even after he asks them to stop,

In one of the filler episodes, Steven and Connie have a car race with a jerk named Kevin. They have an anxiety attack while driving and spin off the road. Neither the children nor the car are hurt, and they easily get back on the road with no trouble, but they do lose control for a brief period.

Gems emerge from the earth rather than being born, however, this is pictured as them jumping out of a hole in a wall rather than anything similar to being buried.

Overall, no, however, nearly every Gem has a weapon that they summon from their Gemstone. Gems are seen using these weapons frequently. Various different weapons are seen being used by the Gems but none of them are a gun in any way. Pearl can shoot lasers from her spear/trident however, which is kind of gun-like.

While there's no nuclear explosion, there is a weapon of mass destruction in the form of a huge blast of light comparable with radiation that leaves countless individuals severely physically disfigured and mentally damaged.

Any time Steven goes inside Lion's mane he has to hold his breath, and sometimes starts suffocating if he's in there too long, though he always manages to come up for air.

I believe multiple people have been hit by Greg's van, although this is for comedic affect and the characters are fine moments after
