No pet dies on-screen. However, one of the first things you can do in the game is find someone's pet fish on the floor. You can then either save it by putting it back into a fish tank or leave it there to die.

There is a squirrel in the beginning (minor spoiler ahead) if you choose to sleep in the abandoned house. Kind of disturbing.

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.

It’s possible if Connor didn’t find the location of Jericho he will go down to the evidence room and depending on your previous choices you can lie and manipulate the other androids in order to get the location

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.

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

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

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.

In the chapter called "The Eden Club", if Connor finds the two deviant androids, a QTE fight ensues. If the player misses a certain button prompt, an android lands a kick on Connor's crotch area. However, he has no genitalia and feels no pain, and he doesn't suffer any visible damage from the impact.

Androids are disturbingly disfigured, experimented on, modified, and torn apart and rebuilt in weird ways by a man holding them captive in his house.

In one of the paths, a main charater (who is an Android and not a human) gets damaged and thrown away, and has to crawl around a dumpsite looking for limbs to fix himself up. The whole scene itself is pretty disturbing if you're uncomfortable with seeing piles of bodies, and the main character ripping limbs off of dumped Androids.

There's a scene in which Connor can be crushed by a moving farm machine if you don't complete the QTE's in time. The crush is not explicitly shown and is off-screen.

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)

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.

All three playable characters and some non-playable characters can sacrifice themselves at various points of the game. All of these are avoidable depending on the player's choices.

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'.

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.

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.

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.

it’s complicated. the cops aren’t celebrated, but one of the main protagonists is a cop/works with the police department and the aim of his sections are about the player helping him hunt down (and mostly kill) oppressed androids. so both no and kinda.

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

In the chapter "Russian Roulette", Connor finds Hank unconscious on the floor with a gun lying next to him. Hank was playing Russian roulette by himself, but he passed out from drinking right before anything else could happen. Also, Hank can mention in "The Bridge" that he is trying to slowly kill himself with unhealthy habits.

Ralph is a mentally ill android who is seen having outbursts of anger and violence, such as threatening a child with a knife or yelling at other characters. This is avoidable by not choosing to go into the abandoned house during Kara's chapter "Fugitives"

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.

A character describes alcoholism and other self destructive coping mechanisms as a way of ‘k*lling himself slowly’.

(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.

In the beginning of the chapter "Shades of Color", an android with a crying baby in a baby stroller walks past the player character. This is unavoidable. It happens while the player passes by a playground. At the latest when the player exits the park, the sound should be gone.

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.

Throughout the entire game it resembles antisemitism and the holocaust through situations the andriods go through (for example how they are treated, their jackets have a circle patch instead of a star patch, etc.) but there is only symbolism

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

Discussion of the use of androids as sexual partners. One sequence takes place at a strip club with androids in their underwear pole dancing. A few characters discuss past sexual assault and sexual slavery. Nothing explicit is ever discussed or shown.

One scene takes place in an android strip club, where the androids are very literally treated and displayed as sexual objects. All of them wear underwear and nothing explicit is shown, but the fact that the place looks more like a showroom than a club could be uncomfortable.

Nothing explicit is ever shown. Towards the end of the game, depending on the player's choices, Kara and Alice are taken to an android recycling center, where all androids must take off their clothes and deactivate their skin. However, the androids have no genitalia, and they resemble white plastic mannequins with their skin turned off.

In the chapter "Jericho", the player can make Markus stand in front of cars, which will then stop and make a honking sound. It isn't very loud. In the beginning of "The Nest", if the chapter starts with Connor and Hank in Hank's car, Hank almost gets hit by a self-driving taxi while crossing the street. It honks a couple of times. Again, it isn't loud.

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.

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?
