(MAJOR SPOILERS FOR EOE) If you watch The End Of Evangelion, all lives are wiped out, including the penguin, Penpen. Also, Ritsukos cat dies. None of them are on screen.

Some of the monsters the main characters fight and kill look like animals; like Sharks and Spiders.

Eva's occasionally lose limbs. They can grow back; but it's still implied to be incredibly painful for the pilot.

Asuka’s whole backstory revolves around how her mother thinks of a doll as her child and not her actual daughter. She is seen ripping the head off the doll.

Gendo’s affair with Naoko doesn’t occur until after Yui is dead and it’s not really confirmed if her husband/Ritsuko’s father was married to her at the time

there are a few times when the audio gets very quiet and then very loud, but there are no jumpscares in the traditional sense.

Towards the end of Episode 20 Maya throws up. Happens shortly after Unit 01 goes berserk. This is fairly brief and audio only. Coming from someone with bad emetophobia, this wasn’t super triggering.

Many characters, but especially Shinji, are frequently shown in states of extreme panic and anxiety in a very visceral way.

Asuka is seen in a bathtub in episode 24 being skin and bones enough to get her hospitalized. Not necessarily an eating disorder, but worth mentioning.

Ritsuko’s mother dies by jumping off a building. It’s not seen on screen, but the after math is. As well as Asuka’s mother, shown being hung from the ceiling.

Not a direct quote, but someone says “YOU’D kill yourself if (…), wouldn’t you?” And the person it is said to affirms it.

there are a few scenes where a character is trapped inside of an Eva, and one episode where the main character is trapped for a prolonged period of time and starts running out of "air".

Both the show and the movies feature fourth wall breaks where the show's format Is shifted, or we see production notes and storyboarding.

Mostly no, Judeo-Christian imagery is used throughout the series but really in a negative way. However you could argue that the main antagonists, SEELE, are very much in the “Illuminati style-group that secretly controls the world” trope which doesn’t automatically make a work that uses it antiemetic per day, but it’s certainly a trope with problematic roots in it

many theorize differently about the sexualities of two important characters in the show, but the general consensus is that they are both MLM. only one of them dies.

(SPOILERS) In the episode "magmadiver", asuka is given a suit which inflates as a means to provide insolation. the scene and asuka's negative reaction are played as a joke

while the ending itself is quite positive, the series ends on an infamously confusing and potentially unsatisfying note. the full ending can be found in the movie "the end of evangelion"
