A man supposedly kills a dragon egg, which is somewhat akin to both a puppy and a human infant. With dragons being sentient, this skims the line, but could still be triggering. A room is shown to be filled with preserved parts of dead animals, some mythical, some real. A toad (a character's pet) is endangered and discussions of his hypothetical death are somewhat frequent throughout season 1. He does not actually die, however, he comes very close. A spider is squashed onscreen and its orange guts/goo spill over someone's hand. A wolf is injured and there are discussions of her hypothetical death. She survives, however, she is amputated, and the missing leg serves as a visible reminder of her hurt. A large leech-like monster is slashed with a sword and orange goo spills out like a spurt of blood. A deer is killed offscreen. We see it before its death, then cut to a scene change when it is already dead. No body is shown. A unicorn is mentioned to have had its horn cut off. Its survival is left ambiguous. A gryphon's severed eyeball is mentioned. Its survival is left ambiguous. However, in end credits, there is a sketch of a living gryphon with an eyepatch. Butterflies and moths are drained of their life essence and killed. Many horses go into battle, and their death is implied.

A wolf cub is seen caught in a beartrap in episode seven, the scene is not overly gory but the cub's paw is amputated off screen. After, a character implies that the cub will need to be put down or it will suffer/die. The wolf survives and grows up despite this.

Numerous insects and spiders are crushed to death onscreen and a fawn is killed offscreen; these are all for dark magic rituals.

A dragon is chained down and injured severely. A unicorn is implied to have its horn taken. A pet bird normally allowed freedom becomes confined to a cage. Animals and animal parts are used to fuel magic.

Moths are used for magic throughout the series. In season two two characters communicate through a small grub like bug that later crawls in one of the characters ears

There's a big scary spider and victims wrapped up in webs, but it turns out to be nonthreatening.

Several scenes with a fantastical species of snake that is supposed to bite someone to perform a magical ritual. A character turns chains into snakes temporarily via magic. Characters are attacked by snakes but they escape.

But dark magic looks like it could be addictive. A storyline where this is expored probably isn't out of question

Character has something bound around her wrist which slowly tightens and destroys her hand. It is later healed but may be hard for someone sensitive to this

A minor character is implied to have been tortured, and soon after is trapped in a coin (which is probably horrible and torturous), The main antagonist mentions wanting to capture and possibly torture information out of a character.

Dragons breathe fire on an opposing army, and they seem to have been burned, but they turn out to have been made immune beforehand.

In the beginning of Season 3, a dragon is blinded by fire on screen, leaving a nasty scar. Later, a worm (Aaravos) spins a web directly on Viren's eye; it seems rather painful and leaves the eye cloudy for the rest of the season.

A character cuts his hand just off screen in Season 2 in order to draw blood for a spell.

There's a scene where bread is too hard to eat and a character attempts to bite it, it's a little jarring but no damage is visible.

One of the characters wears a magic braclets that tightens as time goes on. Her hand becomes blue and there is discussion of amputation. A wolf pup is also severely injured and gets a leg amputated. Nothing is shown on screen, but the amputated and healed leg is shown eventually.

The mother of the main characters is dead before the story begins, but the details are not provided until a flashback in season 2. Presumably the father of one of the characters is also already dead, because he's raised by his stepfather. The mothers of another character are said to be dead (details in a flashback). The dead dragon is the parent of a dragon character. The father/stepfather dies but it's not shown on screen. A father is stabbed by a sword but it turns out to be an illusion.

He's not a toy but the younger prince keeps a magical frog/toad creature named bait and that animal is put in danger in some scenes. Bait is never harmed. If the idea of something precious to a child being harmed is upsetting, this could be upsetting too

No, though there is the mention of some people wanting to kill the princes, who are still kids.

It’s an attempted kidnapping and it doesn’t work, but it’s enough to be triggering if you’re upset by the concept

In the beginning, one of the main characters is stalking a guard, intending to kill him. (She laters spares his life ) The main characters are followed and stalked by the antagonist's children on their way to zaidia.

Similar concepts are discussed, but there are no explicit ghosts as pop culture would have them. However, it could still be triggering. Spectral illusion images of dead people appear; they are not decayed, not meant to be scary, and are treated with wonder and awe. In similar fashion, a man has a spectral appearance similar to an astral projection. Another man dies and is resurrected. He comes back fully human, sentient, and non-decayed, just slightly battered and beaten from the aftermath of his injuries. The soul is sucked out of a man, who screams in agony. There is no body left, he is trapped in another dimension. The soul is sucked out of a wolf-like animal, which is left as a lifeless and pale husk of questionable sentience. Note: Tangentially, the graphic novel continuation includes many ghosts.

No, however, there is a scene vaguely similar to a suicide attempt. A main character attempts to face an oncoming army all alone, knowing and expecting that this will kill her, when it really isn't necessary for her to do this. When confronted about it, she states that "If I die (...) I'll just be paying the price". This heavily implies that (due to spoilers and plot reasons) she believes that she deserves death in some form, and sees it as redemption. This topic is discussed heavily for an episode. After some convincing she eventually decides not to go through with the plan.

A character's soul is trapped into an item. It is unclear if the character is conscious; if yes, it would probably qualify.

A pet has the ability to make 1 bright flash S1E1 has a lightning storm S1E5: 5:30-6:40 Callum tries a lightning spell. It's not super strobe-y but might be triggering to photosensive viewers, but does end with one big flash and again at 19:35 S1E7: 20:06-20:12 bright light effect for a spell

A dragon egg is believed to be killed; its mother grieves its loss. Dragons are sentient in this universe, so it is quite similar to the death of an unborn infant.

Nothing further than making out. A few rather blatant sex jokes are made, though.

Racial hatred between humans and elves; at one point an elven child is chased out of a town by an angry mob. There is also a character insisting that an unborn child deserved to be killed because he was a dragon (a sapient species in this world). Ethnic cleansing is shown in the prologue.

Sort of? A lot of other people are killed trying to protect him, but he is the first major character to die.

Not often and usually only small amounts; most notable is at the end of Season 3, where a character is stabbed through the chest on screen and bleeds out, with no attempt to hide the wound. Shortly after this is revealed to be an illusion.

In Season 2 Episode 9, Callum has a type of fever dream that involves him drowning and then having an anxiety attack where he hyperventilates. During these parts of his dream he loudly gasps for breath in his sleep.
