Random teeth collections are a recurring theme in a lot of episodes.

Syringes only come up once, and minorly. The episode MAG 62 First Edition has a scene where a character watches a doctor murder a patient with a syringe of poison. The episode is a bit important as it's the backstory of a recurring character, but the scene is short and can be skipped. The scene is from timestamp 12:05 to 13:03 Also, in one episode (MAG 45 Blood Bag), mosquitoes attack people, and that might not count for everyone but it upset me so I might as well mention it.

LOTS of bugs. Worms are a central part of almost all of season 1, and various bugs (and spiders) remain relevant through the rest of the show.

Creepy clown horror is a major theme of the first three seasons.

Some episodes feature spiders prominently; a main character has been haunted by spiders since childhood.

No central kid characters we know and are attached to, and in general writer Jonny Sims dislikes violence on children, but generic children do: get murdered, go missing, disappear, get threatened, live in dangerous environments, and cause violence themselves.

in the sense that no one is safe"; the survival/death rate so far is pretty equal between LGBT and non-LGBT characters.

- in statements, many occurrences of suicide or things that look like it, sometimes very violently, sometimes mundane, sometimes through supernatural means. Characters are often supernaturally manipulated into putting themselves in danger, or driven to suicide after trauma. At least one case of death by hanging (MAG008), 2 self-immolations (MAG037 and MAG055), a few jumpings (MAG046, MAG075), some self-stabbings. S4 adds: 124 (a supernatural being jumps out of a high place (probably surviving it) and a man's murder is covered up in-universe as being a suicide), 125 (a supernaturally-frenzied man impales himself on own weapon); neither involve mental illness or suicide ideation. - (S3 SPOILER) A main character more or less deliberately sacrifices themself while in a bad place psychologically, and being explicitly referred to as having a death wish. (Episode: MAG119)

I don't remember any actual detailed deaths by drowning, but a few close experiences described in more or less detail: - MAG51: a diver almost drowns in the ocean - MAG088: a corpse found, theorized to have drowned stupidly - MAG109: a character almost drowns in supernaturally-deep water - MAG033 and MAG115: references to sailors being thrown overboard, a corpse found in the water

More commonly, people just fall endlessly as a form of torture...

A recurring character dies from a brain tumor and is mentioned as having some massive seizures leading up to the death.

It technically doesn't happen, but in the episode MAG 70 Book of the Dead a character reads a disturbing prediction that he will die when he is hit by a car and trapped. It doesn't actually happen and the actual crash is only briefly described

Characters occasionally hesitate on what is the appropriate pronoun to use for monsters (she" or "him" vs "it"). At least one monster calls itself an "it" and is sometimes still referred to as "him", but it doesn't appear to be a big deal. A character-of-the-episode mentions (vaguely) having some difficulties when she was outed as being trans, but with no mention of misgendering. She is consistently referred to with the correct gender before and after we learn that she is trans. (Episode: MAG100)

- MAG014 and MAG072 involve explicit finger/toe mutilation (and more) - MAG029 has mention of self-mutilation of a finger (that appears to grow back)
