One character mentions being sexually assaulted multiple times by different people. Most notably if she's brought to the nightclub bathroom on the Citadel.

During a story mission, you can encounter a minor villain from the previous game, provided their life was spared. You learn they have become a serious alcoholic ever since their encounter with Commander Shepard.

Animal-like aliens die, such as varren. One of the (optional) missions in Tuchanka involves killing monkey-like pests that are raiding the food supply.

During the opening sequence, your ship gets attacked and needs to be evacuated. You fail to make it in time, get spaced, and are forced to watch as your character's oxygen tank is damaged, and they slowly asphyxiate.

During a side-mission with one of your crew members, you are ambushed by pirates. Your player has the option to preemptively shoot a tank of explosive gas during the pirate leader's monologue. If this option is taken, the leader is set aflame and dies screaming.

If enough poor choices are made throughout the game and final mission, the main character, Commander Shepard, can fall to their death in the final mission.

Additionally, during one story mission you have the option to push someone out the window of a high rise.

The player character can cheat on their previous love interest from the first game (if they pursued a romance), but it's unfortunately ambiguous whether the relationship is still happening due to a conflict between you and your LI. Your LI refuses to join Shepard and is disappointed in their choices, and after this Shepard can confide into other characters that they're no longer together.

After the opening scene, there is surgery scene with needles, syringes, scalpels, etc. The inside of veins and organs are seen briefly, but if you are easily freaked out by medical things, I'd advise skipping the scene or looking away.

If the player chooses the "sole survivor" background for Shepard, it will be implied throughout the series that they experience PTSD related to the event in their backstory.

There is a scene during the beginning of the game where Shepard wakes up too early during reconstruction. The scene is viewed from Shepard's perspective and contains effects such as heavy breathing, blurred vision, and distorted audio to create a mood/feeling of panic. Shepard is given sedatives and temporarily returns to an unconscious state.

In the game, a type of alien called Krogan are affected by a disease that causes only a few babies to be able to hatch. While it isn't exactly miscarrying, I would consider it similar enough to warrant a caution to anyone sensitive to miscarriage.

If Jacob's loyalty mission is not completed, or an unsuitable choice is made regarding who performs which jobs during the final mission, he can die, though the order is somewhat random. I recommend looking up a guide to avoid this.
