In Tibet, Marion is having a drinking contest with a local in her bar. They take two shots of liquor, but as there are many empty shot glasses in front of them, it appears they've been drinking for some time.

I personally don’t find it excessive but the ending with three of the villains’ faces getting destroyed in gory detail probably qualifies. More minor instances of blood and gore also show up, like a headshot in the Tibetan bar, a villain getting shredded by a propeller with onscreen blood splatter, and Alfred Molina getting impaled all over the place (seemingly in the throat, head, etc.) by spikes.

A married man gets kissed by another woman and then has a goofy happy smile afterwards. It's not passionate, nor important to the plot, but could be triggering to some, especially since she mentions the wife before kissing him.

Indy mutters "Son of a bitch" at one point. "Hell" and "Goddamn" are also said. Nothing worse is said than these, though.

The N*zi salute is used several times by both N*zis and a monkey at one point.

Not nearly as much as Temple of Doom but as a 1980s film based on 1930s media it was kinda inevitable. Indy gets chased by angry Hollywood Natives at the command of the villain and the Egyptian characters are either bad guys, civilians who praise Indy for fighting the bad guys, or a mystic. Sallah is an Egyptian played by a white guy and Alfred Molina plays a Latin American. Extras in yellowface and brownface.

Indy and Marion's back story involves them being in a relationship while she was a teenager and he was much older. This isn't shown but is discussed when Indiana Jones approaches Marion in her bar. It's implied during their argument (and later confirmed while they are walking through the Egyptian market place "He loved you like a son. It took a ... lot for you to alienate him." "Not much, just you.") that their long ago relationship was the reason for Jones and Abner Ravenwood to part ways on bad terms.

The film is about finding the Ark of the Covenant and ends with the angels of death within being freed and killing a group of N*zis. There’s also a fictional religion that worships a Golden Idol. Indy tries to steal said idol from its temple but is stopped by the faith’s followers (although the villain has falsified an alliance with them and soon steals the idol himself).

The infamous opening of the ark is quite graphic, with faces melting, heads exploding, etc. Men are shot with sometimes graphic blood spurts. A man is implied to be ground up by propeller, and you see blood splash onto a plane. A man is also killed with an ancient spike trap, with one of the spikes through his head.
