Second season: the party adopts a magical dog in episode 32, and while he is occasionally in peril by the combat that takes place around him, he is never killed or injured.

In campaign two: As the pet is technically a fey creature that takes on the appearance of a cat, it can’t die or feel pain, but it is “killed” a few times while it is in the form of other animals.

Caleb (campaign 2)'s cat is a fay creature so while it does go to 0 hit points, it never really dies" just goes to a different plane of existence and gets summoned back.

In the Search for Grog oneshot and mentioned in the C1E115, a character briefly has an arm pulled off. It is regrown via magic and is generally treated as a joke. It is not particularly graphic.

Fights can get very graphic, and the party is often descriptive or asked to describe how they kill their enemies.

There is a scene at the end of episode 25 of campaign 2 that comes out of nowhere and could be particularly triggering, especially since the story is told in first and second person. The following arc is all about human trafficking.

First season: The party gets cleaned up, and have casual and funny conversations with each other. Two party members have a bath together, but the circumstance is very humorous and heart-warming. Second season: Two party members go to a bathhouse together. They both have private baths. -The party go to a bath house and all bathe together in a public bath. It's taken as a cool-down moment for all of the excitement.

Season 1: It is implied that at one point one of the party members had a stalker, but it all happened pre-stream. There is no stalking in the recorded episodes, and the stalking is only referred to very briefly in one episode.

because it's a recorded D&D everything that takes place is either described or voice acted so there are no visual or audio depictions of gore or anything else (with the exception of several props and maps)

While it’s never explicitly labeled as such in game, one of the characters speaks extremely negatively about her appearance. The DM (who has body dysmorphia himself) has referred to it as such out of game.

Second season: the character Caleb suffers from anxiety and ptsd, and occasionally has bouts of anxiety. He is typically guided through them by his friends. The character Caduceus also has an anxiety attack in episode 36 but he isn’t talked through it by his friends.

No, but: in campaign 2 there is a scene where a character enters a fight club and intentionally loses a fist fight, being knocked unconscious, due to feelings of depression brought on by guilt.

Critical Role itself does not but Talks Machina flashes stuff on the screen every episode! Specifically it flashes the word "Submit" on the screen in large white letters every time Brian says it

The whole show is filmed in a studio. The camera work is professional and steady, and even more so in the second season. There are one or two instances where a camera drops, but it's very rare.

There are a couple incidents where a player accidentally misgenders an npc and are corrected (jmon sa’ord in c1, Bryce in c2) C2: There is a cis female character played by a man, and sometimes the players will accidentally refer to the character using he/him pronouns because those are the player’s pronouns, instead of the characrer’s pronouns

The cast and crew are very aware of their audience. They fully support the LGBT+ community, POC and other marginalized groups, and are extremely accepting and supportive.

I'm not sure, but probably. There's hundreds of episodes of these people playing in a show made for adults. It would be strange if that topic never came up.

I wouldn’t exactly say it’s an unhappy ending, but there are some serious sad elements to an otherwise happy ending for campaign 1 (death of loved ones, etc)

season 1: there is a scene where a character is disguised as a child and jokes that a party member disguised as his father was abusive towards him (no abuse occurs and the person isn’t actually a child). also some rough relationships between the twins and their father, and it could be interpreted that their father was abusive. Season 2: one character has a very bad relationship with their parents and some of their backstory and comments about their parents make it seem like their parents were probably abusive. This is all in backstory though.

there are multiple occurrences in both the first and second season where the environment makes breathing difficult, such as toxic air, or being underwater, though this is usually quickly solved by magical effects and items

First season: Keyleth jumps off a cliff and transforms herself into a goldfish, underestimating the damage that falling off a giant cliff would do to her. It's very much joked about, and not tragic at all. She's brought back to life shortly after.

A character in the first season uses almost exclusively guns to fight. Few others have them. In the second season guns are seen occasionally and rarely used.
