In an early section of the game, there is a fish on the floor near a shattered fishtank. The player has the option to pick the fish up, and can either place it in the remaining water in the tank to save it, or leave it on the floor to die. It is also fairly easy to overlook the fish on the floor, as it is not very large or noticable outside of the player character's room scanning ability.

There's a fictional drug called Red Ice, which is brought up periodically throughout the first act and abused by several characters.

Lieutenant Anderson is an alcoholic, and refuses to stop drinking despite Connor's insistence.

Hank is an alcoholic. Several characters met in the first act of the game are addicted to Red Ice, a drug similar to cocaine.

In one of the choices a main character who is an Android could sacrifice themselves. This is avoidable and doesn't make the ending a good one

Markus loses an optical unit, which is the equivalent of an eye, and must pull one out of another android to restore his vision.

At one point a character's robotic heart can be pulled out, causing them to twitch in a sort of seizure-like way

Though they are machines, it is possible for androids to break limbs.

Connor may use psychological abuse on an android if the player allows it.

A little girl is held hostage at gunpoint in the first chapter. Later on, Kara and Alice are kidnapped, in a way.

At the beginning of the game, a little girl can die by falling off the roof if the player make the wrong choices. A child main character can also die in multiple scenarios throughout the game if the player makes the wrong choices or fails QTEs. A main character's child dies several years before the events of the game, having a large impact on that character's personality and storyline.

Todd may be killed by Kara in 'A Stormy Night'. Hank may succumb to depression after losing his son and kill himself. Carl has a heart attack and dies if Markus doesn't fight back against Leo in 'Broken'.

Todd's wife left him for an accountant, while it's not stated if they had already separated before this, it's possible she cheated.

Under some conditions, the player character's body is taken over by an outside force by technological means, and the player must struggle to regain control before the character does something against their will. In some variations of this event, the character will shake and rapidly blink their eyes in an attempt to resist the takeover.

The closest thing to a shower scene in this game is when Connor forces Hank to have a cold shower to sober him up in 'Russian Roulette'. Unlike in previous Quantic Dream games, the scene is played for comedy instead of sex appeal.

There's an unavoidable jumpscare in the chapter "Jericho".

You're seeing hank drunk and he throws up in his bathroom, but he gives a warning first though, it's not a cutscene so you can leave the room.

However, you can visit a sick man's home. He's watched by a medic android and has a heart rate monitor near his bed. Also some plot points involve getting medical supplies like "blood" and "vital organs" for androids, but not in a hospital or a hospital-like setting

I found the scenes of the freighter in Jericho to be claustrophobic.

(Spoilers!!) There seems to be a theme where all the humans that are evil and abusive are overweight, such as Todd Williams and the man who was killed by his android. While this could probably make someone with Body Dysmorphia uncomfortable (it sure does make me uncomfortable), there is not any characters with the disorder.

Many scenarios in which several different characters, both major and minor, may commit suicide depending on player choices. In some scenarios, the player character may even be given the option to commit suicide. Most suicides are by firearm or by falling off a building, and most are shown on screen. Also, a major character repeatedly expresses suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

Alice basically lies and manipulated Kara the entire first half of the game

The camera shakes or tilts during several intense QuickTime event sequences to emphasize the chaos and urgency of the situation.

Discussion of the use of androids as sexual partners. One sequence takes place at a strip club with partially nude androids pole dancing. A character expresses distress over her past as an android sexual partner. Nothing explicit is ever discussed or shown.

WR400 and HR400 android models are designed for humans to have intercourse with them. It's considered unethical by some characters due to machines being unable to consent. North is a WR400 model who became deviant when she could no longer bear to be used this way. At least two other WR400 models are abused by a customer at an android sex club, to the point where one shuts down (equivalent to death) and the other is forced to kill him to save her own life.

Avoidable. In one sequence, the player character may confront and fight two women in a romantic relationship and can choose to kill or spare them. If the player kills only one of the women, her partner commits suicide in front of the player out of despair.

Many human characters use offensive, abusive language towards androids. Comparisons are drawn between this and abuse targeted at real life minorities, most specifically black people.

Androids are commonly referred to as "it" as opposed to "he" or "she". This is never explicitly brought up as a problem, though it does imply that androids aren't alive, and most of the game is dedicated to arguing against this.

Many unhappy endings for all three player characters depending on player choices and success at quick time events. It is rather difficult to obtain a happy ending, though several exist.

The first two playable chapters in Kara's story depict severe domestic violence.

Blue android blood is very frequently spilled, and some human blood can be seen on occasion. Some very detailed shots of gruesome wounds on androids.

theres a pretty intense scene in which a man beats his daughter and then the player has to escape the house with her. failed QTEs or wrong choices can lead to the child dying.

Technically it's not a nuclear explosion; it is a dirty bomb, which utilizes conventional explosives (nowhere near as powerful as nuclear weapons) to spread nuclear material. Meaning structures are left intact, but the resulting radiation is lethal. And the player has agency on whether to use the dirty bomb or not; it will not be used without their consent. Still, it's a large explosion involving nuclear material, so it might count as a nuclear explosion in spirit?

Determinant death scenes occur in "The Hostage", "The Nest" and "Battle for Detroit - Connor's Last Mission". All of them are caused by player choice, thus avoidable (The Hostage - Talk Daniel down; The Nest - Save Hank; Connor's Last Mission - Be friends with Hank)

Police officers and SWAT teams are equipped with guns. John Phillips is murdered with his own gun in 'The Hostage'. Todd and Hank both own guns which may be used depending on player choice. Markus and his people may use guns if their message is sent with violence.

Under some conditions, there is a scene in which a player character must try to cross a highway - fail too many prompts, and the character may be hit by a car and killed.
