There is a monster encounter where your adversary is a cat-like creature. Like all monster encounters in this game, it is possible (but not required or recommended) to kill her. Additionally, there is an anthropomorphic cat creature who acts as a shopkeeper and cannot be fought. In the worst possible ending, the entire world is destroyed, killing all remaining monsters including the cat shopkeeper.

You can choose to kill a variety of dogs in the game, but it is not recommended as the good ending" of the game involves sparing every creature you run into

There are monster characters resembling other animals - for example, one is a deer - that can be killed.

You are all extremely confused about what dog fighting is. Dog fighting is when humans force dogs to fight for amusement, not being attacked by dogs.

There is a very difficult-to-find monster encounter which is very dragon-like (and described by his creator as a "butterdragon"). Like other monster encounters, it is possible but not required or recommended to kill him.

There is a spider monster, Muffet, who bakes with spiders. In her battle, spider's aid her. If you spare her or eat one of her treats, she's friendly to you.

Never outright confirmed, but Chara was likely abused and is manipulative towards Asriel. The evidence for this is few and far between, and requires playing multiple routes.

There are no graphic depictions of child abuse, but there are heavy implications of child abuse in some routes.

one of the characters becomes a parental figure of some sort to the player, and it's up to you whether you commit domestic violence or not

In several points of the game, the player can find cameras that are implied to be recording them. Additionally, after exiting the Ruins, there is a short sequence where a character stalks the player which may be triggering to some.

There’s a dog who “smokes dog biscuits,” but this is purely for comedic effect and it’s never listed as addiction.

At one point, you, playing as a character that is presumably a child, can go on a 'date' with Papyrus, but Papyrus either doesn't understand the implications of what a date is or he does and has no actual romantic/sexual intent. Still, worth noting.

When on the "no mercy" path, after killing one boss his head becomes detached from his body while his body is reduced to dust. His head becomes dust separately. This is commonly interpreted (and regularly depicted in fan material) as being the result of the player crushing his head under their foot.

Offscreen, but a major character is able to have a heatstroke depending on the player's actions. Whether a seizure specifically took place is unclear, but may be implied as she "can barely move" according to another character.

In the true pacifist route, Undyne's house burns down. The house is shaped like a fish so it comedically shows it; the windows of the house are eyes, so there are flames in it and "tears."

There are battle options and dialogue choices where you (a child) can 'flirt' with various characters, and two 'date' sequences with characters who are adults. However, all of these are tame; the character in the first date sequence doesn't seem to understand what a date even is, and the second is more wacky misunderstandings if anything. The player character themselves doesn't have anything sexualized.

Sorta, in the genocide route (the one where you eliminate every monster in the game) undyne takes a fatal blow blocking a child from the player, also, while accidental and not shown on screen, a major character dies trying to put his sibling in their requested resting place

Though not shown, a major character is killed before the events of the story. Additionally, many monsters can be killed if you attack them.

The parents of Asriel Dreamer, Toriel and Asgore, can be killed by the protagonist. When they are killed, they have slashes across themselves and turn into dust. However it is your choice if they die or not.

When the playable child character is taken in by a motherly goat creature who intends to keep you as her own. She is disappointed when you leave, but understands that you are not her child. Your character resembles the first human child that this motherly goat creature adopted. So implied kidnapping? Additionally a silly skeleton creature “captures” you after he defeats you in battle. You are put into a room with dog supplies and a fence, but can easily escape through the bars to continue your journey.

With a stretch, you could *maybe* count a scene on the Pacifist route, but it's more silly sitcom-esque antics if anything. Basically, one female character asks you to deliver what quickly turns out to be a love letter to her (also female) crush. However, the second character mistakes it as it being yours (gender ambiguous/implied nonbinary), which results in a humorous intentionally awkward sequence where both of you go on a date, during which she admits she favors the first character more. The first character eventually shows up while the two of you are discussing approaches to asking her out. Again, more ridiculous sitcom misunderstandings than any sort of cheating or deliberate dishonesty involved.

Papyrus is definitely autism-coded as he has many typically autistic traits, but he is not abused or mistreated unless by the player on a Genocide run or a No Mercy run. Even then, it’s not autism-specific since it isn’t mentioned and Papyrus has not been canonically confirmed as autistic. Being autistic myself, I think he definitely is, but that’s beside the point.

There is one successful and two attempted suicides in the backstory. Furthermore, two characters can commit suicide during the game, one implied and the other on-screen (though non-graphic). Both of them survive in the pacifist route.

You are all extremely confused about what body dysmorphia is. Body dysmorphia is not body horror. Body dysmorphia is not gender dysphoria. Body dysmorphia is when a person (usually anorexic) perceives their body to be different(usually larger) than it actually is.

A few characters use mild cussing from time to time (nothing above pg13) and one character is depicted to be (from what most can tell) bleeding, but both are very mild, and the latter is very difficult to trigger (if you get to the "unexpected really hard fight" it's that one)

it's more of a "rectangle in a dress" joke. also, in one of the endings, he gives his dress to a character that is implied to be transfeminine.

No, but be wary; characters that use they/them pronouns in canon are often given a binary gender in fanworks, and this is a common point of contention.

There's an implied relationship (commonly interpreted as romantic but has no direct confirmation) between a skeleton with no confirmed age and a goat monster implied to be over 100 years old (although not phisically aging past around early 30s), the skeleton by most is interpreted to be around late 20s, so technically it's ambiguous

In the final area of one of the game's main routes, you can learn a male child character was repeatedly manipulated by a family member using the phrase "big kids don't cry", a tactic they presumably used to invalidate his emotions so he would not resist them. The manipulator was of the same age as the child, and the scene can be easily avoided by not watching the cassette tapes, but the lasting consequence is still evident as he states he still views himself as a "crybaby" later on the route.

there is eye gore shown toward the very end of the genocide route. there is another instance of possible blood in the genocide route, but considering the character it happens to, it could just be ketchup.
