You could make the argument that the Diamonds are like abusive parents to Pink, but the show's crew had debunked the gems having any family relations. Plus, Connie's mom is initially very strict towards her, but she eventually changes her ways.

The Diamonds are coded as abusers (and they're even comparable to N*zis, for that matter) and get a rather quick and undeserved redemption arc.

Lapis is shown being drawn towards an abusive dynamic with Jasper in which Lapis can subjugate Jasper. She resists it in the end, but the idea of "abused becoming the abuser" seems to be presented uncritically by the show. There are other points where this theme shows up in her dialogue too.

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.

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

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

While no one is assaulted, the episode Alone Together features a character being approached at a party by someone who wants to dance with them, and keeps pushing and getting in their personal space even after being told no. This doesn't escalate, but it may be uncomfortable for some viewers.

No literal rape whatsoever, although it is possible to interpret fusion as a metaphor for sex, and multiple nonconsensual fusions occur onscreen. Although these scenes can be thematically similar to rapes, the imagery shown is not similar. You just see two characters dance, glow, and turn into one big character.

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.

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.

None of the minor characters are drawn in a sexualized way or engage in sexual behavior, but some people consider fusion as a metaphor for sex, and minors do perform this. Usually when minors do it, fusion is NOT sexualized at all. The one scene that might be uncomfortable is in Alone Together when the gems are trying to teach Steven how to fuse for the first time. They demonstrate performing sexualized dances to fuse with each other, and then Steven awkwardly tries to perform the same dances. It’s not sexual when he does it and played for laughs though

The major characters who die onscreen are never permanently dead. The only really dead major characters is Rose Quartz, who died before the events of the series (and there are no flashbacks to her death).

Sort of. The closest thing gems have to death is shattering. (Their gem breaking into multiple shards.) But gem shards are shown to still have some consciousness, so they're not really dead. Also, Rose Quartz sort of "died" to give birth to Steven. But since her gem is intact it is greatly debated if she is really, fully gone.

Overall, no, however, Rose Quartz started her relationship with Greg around the same time as her relationship with Pearl. It’s unknown if Rose and Pearl were still in a romantic relationship then, however, Pearl was very hurt by Rose’s neglect to her after meeting Greg. The situation is sort of like cheating.

In many episodes, locations called "kindergartens" are shown. Kindergartens are areas where gems have been made by popping out of the wall leaving a hole the size of their body behind. The walls are covered in body shaped holes, so not exact circles but could still be triggering.

I clicked "no," but there is a love triangle between Pearl Rose and Greg where it's unclear if Rose started seeing Greg while she was still with Pearl. Pearl makes a comment about having been fine with Rose seeing other people before because they never really mattered until Greg, so it still wouldn't really be cheating, but I think it's worth noting if this type of thing upsets you.

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

It is not graphic at all, but Pearl frequently allows herself to be essentially knocked unconscious or beaten to exhaustion in battle even when it’s unnecessary and unwanted. She feels the desire to sacrifice her body for others because she considers herself useless. The reasoning behind her self-sacrifice is similar to self harm and could be disturbing. She also tries to impress this mindset onto a young girl but is stopped.

Steven experiences a lot of his mothers memories and sometimes this is expressed with him not knowing if he is fully himself or not. A lot of homeworld gems also make fun of stevens appearance because they still think he's Rose/Pink in a disguise. He is dressed in feminine clothes when he’s captured by the diamonds

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 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.

One of the main characters admits to watching the main character sleep often, it’s glossed over and clearly because she doesn’t understand sleep due to not needing it, but it does happen

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

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.

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,

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.

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.

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

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.

Yes. Mental illness is often misrepresented and the sapphire name is used for a black coded character which is a racial caricature, Ruby, amethyst and bismuth are also portrayed as an angry black femmes and bismuth specifically is the “angry against opressors to the point of homocide, that needs to be silenced or convinced that violence isn’t the answer and their pain is deminished” trope

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.

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

A cut character that’s featured in the art book but obviously they got rid of that design and was never used on the show (and even got that same art book recalled after there were enough protests)

Steven cries a lot due to dealing with a lot of stress, and his friends try to help him calm down and comfort him when he’s upset. It’s really sweet :)

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.

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.

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.
