Certain canine enemies are referred to as dogs, though they look somewhat different from real dogs. The first dungeon, Sastasha, has jackal-like 'Scurvy Dogs,' while Stormblood-era Garlean dungeons have 'Canis Pugnax,' which look like monstrous bulldogs. The dungeons are mandatory, and the players must kill at least some of the canines to proceed.

During an optional series of sidequests, a male character stalks a female character. This is framed as comedic.

The Post-Endwalker Trial series is about rescuing a major character's sibling from their abuser, with the 3rd trial being a fight against the abuser himself. The English voice acting can cause a triggering reaction due to the commanding tone of the character when ordering the victim around for his various attacks.

This is a tactic used by some of the game's antagonists towards the player, and also towards npc characters like Yotsuyu. It may also be part of flavor text for quests once you become more self aware of the fetch quests in the writing.

A major antagonist is shown to have been abused as a child, which forms a major part of her motivation. Even now that she is an adult, her parents are entirely unrepentant and willing to abuse her further up until the moment they die.

Addiction

One of the optional repeatable quests for the Gnath tribe (Heavensward content) requires delivering a fictional plant to several npcs, highly implied to be equivalent to marijuana.
Some npcs can be seen smoking from pipes, including one of the antagonists in Stormblood.

Various characters throughout the game, both PCs and NPCs, use alcohol. Some NPCs do so to the point where it impacts their ability to function or fulfill their daily tasks, especially in Limsa Lominsa. At one point in the gap between A Realm Reborn and Heavensward, Thancred is absolutely sloshed and slumped over the table in Scion HQ, but it's easy to miss since it's an optional interaction in a side room. Moenbryda and Yda are both at the table when it happens, if you want to keep a watch for that and avoid it.

In a main story level 60 dungeon, one of the bosses is a large hostile pegasus which must be defeated to continue. In the lvl 86-87 zone in Endwalker there are unicorn enemies called monoceros which can be killed, and in the endgame Endwalker raids there is a boss thats a version of hippocampus, however it is more monstrous and dragonic than horselike.

The unprovoked murder of a dragon in the backstory is the cause of an ongoing war; your efforts to end this war peacefully form a major story arc. One antagonist of this arc is another dragon who, consumed by his desire for revenge, wishes this war to continue until humanity is destroyed; this forces you to fight and kill him.

Various lesser dragons populate the game world as hostile mobs. Quests occasionally task the player with killing one or more of these dragons, and hunting them for their hide, meat, and other body parts is occasionally required to support a crafting job.

The player classes Dragoon, Ninja, Machinist, Black Mage, Summoner, Blue Mage, Red Mage, and possibly some other classes I can't think of have fire-based spells and attacks that they use to damage and kill enemies. Additionally, many enemies attack players with fire-based attacks, which can kill the player. I don't believe any of them act as though they're burning to death though, they just play out a standard death animation.

It is stated in the optional but recommended to complete Shadowbringers sidequest “Village Of Woe” that a the town’s old mayor - and father of the quest giver - hung himself from guilt of not protecting his town a year ago. The Sidequest also features a character who has been unable to accept the death of the man, and it is implied he believes the man is still alive.

Yes. Towards the end of the base game ("A Realm Reborn"), one of the NPC protagonists (who went missing around the middle of the story) is revealed to be possessed by the antagonist. In early portions of the expansion "Heavensward", you find out one of the NPC protagonists has been permanently possessed by the FFXIV universe's equivalent of God. During later portions of that same expansion, one character is shown to become possessed by the lingering anger of the main antagonist (which temporarily transforms him into the antagonist). Throughout the after-story content in the expansion "Stormblood", it is shown the body of Stormblood's main antagonist has been possessed after death, and that same antagonist himself is possessing someone else's body. At one point in the early story of the expansion "Shadowbringers", one of the NPC protagonists is shown to be briefly possessed by the NPC mentioned earlier that had been possessed by God.

There are many lesser mobs/fiends in the game that are ghosts/undead/spirits in deserted areas that you can explore through dungeons or raids such as Amdapor, Palace of the Dead and Mhach. In Palace of the Dead you see npcs (non playable characters) within it that you have encountered and died at some point during the events of the game. These npc mobs can be randomly found within the floors of the palace.

The level 50 dungeon, Tam-Tara Deepcroft (Hard) also has a lot of creepy themes revolving around ghosts, undead and spirits consistently throughout it, including boss fights. The last cutscene upon leaving this dungeon features a ghost in it, with a character that you know should be dead. The camera shakes, glitches and zooms in as it tries to focus on this character/ghost then the sound effects and music comes to a hault as it reveals the ghost's face.

One recurring enemy, Ferdiad, has a jester-like appearance and a Joker-like cackle; he first appears in the Amdapor Keep (Hard) dungeon in A Realm Reborn, and returns as a secondary antagonist and boss in the Shadow of Mhach questline of Heavensward.

Additionally, Kefka Palazzo of Final Fantasy VI appears as a boss in the eighth encounter of the Omega raid series in Stormblood.

In the expansion Shadowbringers, there comes a point where you, the player, and Alphinaud have to take showers and spray on perfume liberally to rid a terrible stench you have. None of your body parts are shown during the events, and it isn't sexualized in any manner. There IS one NPC who has flesh toned pants on while standing in one of the other showers, however, which is played for laughs.

The major antagonists of Stormblood and Endwalker. The former has the other has *some* sort of issues resulting in anhedonia; violence and risking his life is the only way he feels something. The latter is suicidally depressed and trying to end the world over it.

The post-A Realm Reborn dungeon Amdapor Keep (Hard) has a fight in which you must kill a room of multiple enemies, as demon walls close in on you. Notifications appear over time to inform you how long you have until the walls close. You can see the walls slowly close in the room. Failure to kill enemies in a timely manner results in the orb in the middle of the room repeatedly spamming an attack until death.

(vague spoilers) Characters sacrifice themselves for the greater good. Notably, there is a disturbing scene following Baelsar’s Wall where a character commits suicide by falling to their death on-screen. The aftermath is shown— there is no blood, but the character’s face is shown in a very grotesque and frightening way.

Is most pronounced in Endwalker--where some cutscenes are shot from first person point of view. Most scenes are typically of dire context and feature a mild case of shaky movement for the player.

Nothing too major, but there are sometimes references to genitalia and sex in NPC dialogue, but usually minor NPCs. At one point a major character is referred to as a "whore" while being kicked repeatedly by a despicable antagonist.

The third Nier alliance raid is heavy on the flashy/staticky visual effects (and was formerly even more so, before Square Enix toned it down in response to feedback.)

Early in the story, the player character is shown to be observed by black-robed NPCs without their knowledge.

In the sidequests to unlock the NieR: Automata raids, the PC's quest companions are blamed when an attack leads to an NPC's miscarriage.

In addition, it should be noted that the Shadowbringers expansion especially uses fatness as shorthand for many negative qualities and uses fatness regularly to push for a reaction of disgust.

No outright slurs, however some gay background npcs from an optional dungeon unlock questline mention that they were outcast from their home because of their relationship.

Though I agree with the other comment on the matter in that it's not enough to warrant being called actively antisemitic, I believe it should also be noted that the villainous group of goblins is referred to as the Illuminati. Again, though, this group otherwise has no connections to any antisemitic stereotypes or conspiracy theories.

In the Hildibrand storyline, intentionally made as comedic, the main character of the storyline dresses up as a bride-to-be and disgusts the groom.

Fictional racism, speciesism and misogyny happen occasionally in-game. If your player character uses she/her pronouns, she is called a b***h at certain points in the story.

sexuality isn't a particular hot topic in the story, and whether not some npcs view your character in a possible romantic light is up for debate. there is, however, definitely death of characters with very strong inclinations towards the PC, regardless of their gender, and their interest is made MUCH more apparent in other translations.

In the major cities there are scantily-clad female dancers. Additionally, in Stormblood, a major antagonist named Yotsuyu has massive trauma due to her relationships with men and the sexual objectification she experienced throughout her entire life. There are also the players who intentionally create scantily-clad female avatars, which is its own kind of sexual objectification.

A minor antagonist in the base game is in love with her adoptive father, the main antagonist; in one dungeon cutscene, she claims ownership of both his body and soul. This is in conjunction with a line of dialogue where, at the end of a meeting, her father waits until all other persons present have left, and then orders her to meet him in his private quarters; these facts taken together imply that he reciprocates her, and that they have a physical relationship.

One comedic side story involves very elderly antagonists with a lot of age-based humor, some of which involves senility.

Ishgard especially has a very bad homelessness problem. Dialogue regarding this is often unavoidable.
However, upon completing Patch 3.3 and attaining Level 60, you can start the Ishgardian Restoration sidequest which will help build new homes for the homeless.

Be aware: An antagonist, who is effectively fiat ruler of an organization that seeks to make their last days on a dying world as pleasant as possible, is exceptionally overweight, but within the context of the story, this is 100% actual obesity, rather than a fat suit.

The endings of each expansion are relatively upbeat but are also achieved by the loss of many friends and allies. The end of Endwalker is an all-around triumphant victory for humanity. The endings are not outright sad but the sacrifices made to get there are immensely bittersweet.

No cars exactly, but various machines, ships, and airships do crash, burn, explode, or otherwise sustain catastrophic damage throughout the game, so use your own discretion.

While not nuclear, there are several large explosions, some directly caused by bombings, with assumed (off-screen) casualties.

Game combat does not graphically depict blood, but bleeding is implied via text. Several abilities and status effects reference blood. Certain enemies drop their blood as random loot.

Brief splashes of blood are occasionally shown in cutscenes; this generally does not linger, but one major arc is noted for an important character being covered in blood early on, which stains his armor red for the remainder of that story.

Engine limitations generally prohibit gore, but one major plot event results in an important character losing an arm.

There are zombie enemies and bosses throughout the game that are depicted as drowned seafarers. One boss has a "drowning" mechanic that kills you if you don't catch air bubbles (no drowning animation is shown, and if you die only the standard "falling to the ground" animation is shown) There is also mention of drowning in some of the dialogue and some boss fights have an instant-death state if you fall into the water under/around the stage (implicated drowning), though no actual drowning is ever shown on-screen.

However, in the middle of the expansion "Shadowbringers", you are confronted with a race of frogmen that attempt to drown people to turn them into more frogmen. Some drowning-esque imagery is shown. You come out of the cutscene underwater, but you cannot drown due to having been given the ability to breathe underwater in the previous expansion ("Stormblood").

Additionally, the story cutscene after defeating the final boss of Shadowbringers shows the NPC protagonists wash up on a beach, some of which appear to have almost drowned (don't worry, everyone is basically conscious or dazed - you can speak to all of them and they'll have dialogue).
