Throughout the game you can hunt animals for meat, but they disappear in a puff of smoke with no blood or gore after. The only exception are horses, whose dead bodies will remain after death.

There are hostile wolves in the game that will attack Link, and they yelp if hit/killed.

There are no animal deaths in cut scenes or as part of the storyline. However, various animals may be killed for resources and it is difficult to get through the game without taking advantage of this. Animal products are used to make food for healing, elixirs for healing or status effects, armor upgrades, and to complete some side quests. If you come within visual range of wolves, they will hunt you until you either kill one of them or manage to move out of range. Other animals will sometimes run or sometimes charge you, including bears, boar, deer, moose, rhinos, and goats. Some animals only flee - foxes, horses, various birds, and squirrels. Fish, insects, and frogs can be collected, but their death is not shown. Domestic animals in towns (horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, dogs) cannot be killed, but may react if struck.

Not in a cutscene, but the player can make the choice to do so (i.e., antagonizing animals, purposefully killing horses, etc.)

If you're not super careful you can end up getting the horse you ride one killed(though at one of the fairy fountains your horse can be revived).

Various insects can be seen, collected, and used in cooking to craft elixirs. Includes beetles, dragonflies, crickets, butterflies, and lightning bugs. fairies are also small, flying creatures that may be thought to resemble insects.

There are dragons you can shoot at if you wish, and you need the stuff that it gives you in order to upgrade certain items. But it's ultimately optional, and the dragons don't die either way.

To those with extreme arachnophobia the guardians may resemble spiders, they are robots with multiple legs that they crawl with. They look more like the robots from the Incredibles than spiders.

The dragons in this game are similar to Chinese dragons in body shape, but there are no snakes.

There is one character who is implied to be a heavy drinker, but it is not shown to be detrimental to her (in fact, her desire for her favorite drink saves her life at one point).

It is possible to cut off the legs of a guardian (a robot-like enemy type that can crawl around on 6 long thin spider legs), but other than that, there is no injury of this kind.

Without the proper equipment or food Link will end up burning to death on Death mountain.

you can drop heavy objects on enemies and npcs but it kind of just slides off of them. it can cause damage to enemies, and if something falls on a korok they say ouch but are not visibly harmed. overall not very graphic.

You will find loose teeth as monster drops, though.

Depends how sensitive you are, a few puzzles in the game require you to shoot eyes with your bow and arrow. however when you do so they usually just vanish in a puff of smoke

There is no mutilation, however some monster drop claws when slain and it is possible to collect dragon claws by shooting passing dragons near their claws. The dragon has no reaction to this and does not appear to be injured.

The player character will ragdoll when hit and when going down cliffs it can look quite gruesome if the person watching doesn't understand how ragdoll physics work and some of the impacts would very badly damage bones in real life (there are no bone snapping sound effects). Anyone who understands game physics will just see it as a body going floppy.

a mother to two children in kakariko village passed away and her grave is up near the top of the village. that storyline is expanded upon in a late-game sidequest and the details of it could be very... upsetting to some.

Zelda is trapped in the castle with Ganon, but this is because she is using her magic as a seal to hold him back. Additionally, the royal guard of the Gorons has been captured by the Yiga Clan and you need to go save her.

One NPC tells a tale from his childhood where one of his friends dies. The death is not shown on screen.

there is a shrine quest where you have to follow a creature through the forest without them seeing you, though your intention is to make sure they reach their goal safely

Octorocks come in many forms, including those that hide underneath the ground. They look like a plant or treasure chest at first, but when you get too close they suddenly jump out and shoot a big rock at you, like a cannon. It surprises me almost every time.

There are ghosts, but they are more like benevolent spirits. There are no hauntings/creepy stuff.

Near the beginning of the game, Link encounters a dragon that has been possessed by malice - an evil, semi-sentient goop found around Hyrule. It causes the dragon to be in pain and to behave erratically.

There are some enemies that are able to fire shock waves and it is possible to be struck by lightning. Some weapons and artifacts can shock the surroundings, but none of these things are specifically used for torture.

It is possible, but not necessary, to crouch Link beneath huts or into other low spaces. There's one area in the game that is completely dark, which may feel claustrophobic to some.

You CAN definitely kill off the player character intentionally in any number of ways if you so choose, but like, why

When you hit an enemy perfectly with an arrow, the screen flashes. I play using a bow and arrow frequently, and it's hurt my eyes after a few shots.

Link is sexually assaulted throughout the game, particularly by the Great Fairies, both physically and mentally. When you choose to upgrade Link's clothes (which can be done 4 times), the Fairies perform increasingly sexual acts on Link, to which Link always appears heavily distressed and embarrassed about. The Great Fairies also make sexual remarks about his looks as a part of many of their regular dialogue. The upgrade cutscenes can be skipped, but the general tone is still there.

There are quite a few sexually abusive lines and acts, especially by the Great Fairies, especially given that Link is always heavily distressed and embarrassed by it.

There is a character in the game who chooses to dress as and pass as a woman, but whom others continue to refer to as a man (misgendering). Link obtains female clothing from this character in order to disguise himself and get into Gerudo town (this is not misgendering).

There is a character who is clearly a gay stereotype but everybody is nice to him.

You can run over enemies with a motorcycle if you have the champions ballad dlc (or with a horse in the normal game) but they don't go flying or react realistically, they just flop around like a ragdoll as if you've hit them with a heavy weapon, or alternatively flinch a little. Running over enemies just does a bit of damage to them.

Not a nuclear explosion per say, but explosions do happen (from barrels of gunpowder, bomb arrows, etc.).

Arguably, yes. In flashbacks, a teenaged Zelda is forced to train continually by her father and she is reprimanded for relaxing/having fun/pursuing other interests. She does not appear to have any friends her own age.

If Link runs out of stamina while in water, he will be shown drowning with sound effects. It will only kill if Link is at low health, but it isn't graphic.

Link takes damage from falls beyond a certain height. If a fall is sufficient to cause fatal damage, he makes a choking sound and falls over, dead. If a fall is bottomless (edge of map, from divine beast) he falls away from the camera, yelling. Enemies also die if pushed from a great height.

Link has a stamina meter when swimming and it is possible to die by drowning (he struggles and sinks, grabbing at nothing). Most enemies also struggle and die if they are knocked into water.

Not really, no. There are a few cutscenes following the defeat of certain major boss enemies where a blood-like goop explodes from their bodies. Safe to say this isn't supposed to be blood (rather a toxic substance known as "malice," which you can find scattered across certain areas in the game in different forms, including the form of living creatures), however the resemblance is kind of there.

No, but it is a plot point that while operating large vehicles (comparable to mechs) the vehicles went haywire, killing the ones driving them.
