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

(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.

Towards the end of the series, Ritsuko's cat that was in the care of her grandmother passes away. It happens offscreen; she's informed via phone call.

Misato drinks a lot, but it’s seen as comedic.

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

Everyone in this show are being mentally tortured. I’m EoE, Asuka gets her eye and guts damaged.

the first angel tries to impale an Eva's right eye, which makes the pilot clutch his right eye in pain.

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.

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.

One depressed character thinks she's ugly even though most people would say otherwise.

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.

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

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".

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.

these become more prominent towards the end of the series, but at several points, lights/colours/words flash across the screen in rapid succession

While nothing physical ever occurs, there are implications that of less than consensual encounters And in the final film (End of Evangelion), one character pleasures themself over an unconscious person, and another scene where a character makes contact with another characters breast, although with non-sexual intentions, the scene is still intentionally made disturbing.

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"

In EoE, Misato shoots an military worker in the head. She later is shot. Gendo uses a gun as a threat in the same movie.
