The entire family is stalked by an ex-con both before and after their prison sentence, though this is not discussed until the last few episodes of the series. Hazel and Cha-Cha also pursue Five and his family members relentlessly, often leaving threats.

A character is frequently told she has nothing special about her and undermined and lied to about her own abilities. This is proven to be a lie with repressed memories.

Idk if this is intended to be a depiction of abuse by form of neglect, but it upset me: many cats live in one house, it's unclear if they're being fed, and they're meowing needily. Many are also skinny, which is what made me think of it.

S2E5, it’s somewhat ambiguous what happens to the cat. A character (who is definitely capable of cat murder) is shown wearing extremely long and sharp heeled pumps. She looks down at a cat rubbing her legs, then makes a quick and jerky movement. We hear the cat yowl offscreen. Afterward, another character briefly looks down and frowns, expression is somewhat disgusted. I *believe* kitty stomping was visually implied but the yowl sounds more like annoyance/surprise than actual pain. And there’s no other murder-y sounds (that I could hear). Regardless, I think about half the people watching will interpret the scene as a cat being injured or killed.

No snakes. However, one caracter (Ben) has tentacles that come out of his body when he fights, and they can look very snake-like sometimes in the way they move.
[SEASON 3] When he is fighting with Jayme in a dojo, he "captures" her with his tentacles, and it kind of looks like she has a big snake around her. Be prepared to look away if that disturbs you!

Season 3, there are a number of shots of large cockroach-like bugs, and close ups of them being killed. There is a scene that is also a trypophobia trigger, in which a humanoid creature has its helmet knocked from its face and these bugs can be seen crawling in and out of holes covering its skin.

A characters throat gets slashed somewhere near the end of S1E8 where Alison confronts Vanya in the cabin. This was VERY graphic for me.
I don’t have timestamps for this BUT I have timestamps for all the flashbacks in the following episode and which I will comment below

In addition to the above comment, in E8 a character’s throat is slashed pretty graphically and they proceed to struggle to breathe.
EDIT: In season 2 there are MANY instances of chokeholds, throats being stepped on, and at one point suffocation by mind control. Also, a character drowns and is revived via mouth to mouth. If you are sensitive to choking, watch season 2 with a friend who can warn you when to look away.

Episode 2, starting at 29:25. A man is tortured through electrocution in multiple places. It’s pretty graphic. If you want to skip this scene, skip ahead to 30:23. Later on the man’s body is discovered by Eudora Patch (the detective) and it’s a very graphic image (they leave him how they tortured him). This is at 52:20, and ends at 52:42

S2E6: A dead man is shown with something stabbed through his eye. S2E7: Someone is stabbed in the eye. S2E8: A dead man with a bloody eye is shown. A character hallucinates her feet sitting in a vat of moving eyeballs. S2E9: A corpse with scorched eye sockets is seen.

Grace is a very human-like android that is beloved by all the Umbrella Academy. She is turned off due to a severe malfunction. There is also an ape of human intelligence that is killed. Reginald Hargreeves is also something definitely not human, probably an alien, and he dies.

EXTREME trypophobia, thankfully I was warned. If you have this phobia I recommend watching the finale with a friend who can tell you when it ends, because it doesn't last too long. I think they show one last shot of it after the initial long shot of it, so watch out!

Season 2, episode 7, Klaus vomits, graphic & sound. Starts at 40:00, ends 40:17. Vomit can be seen on the ground during scene 42:30-43:22.
Season 2, episode 8, continue of the same scene, vomit can be seen on the ground during 3:50-4:50, including someone with vomit all over it.
I included the specific time-frames so you can skip around these if you're easily triggered.

Klaus fought in Vietnam and is clearly traumatized by this. In season 2 a paint mixer makes loud banging noises and he has a flashback.
All of the main characters suffered traumatic childhoods and it's safe to assume that at least some of them have PTSD because of this.

A kid (Harlan) is seemingly autistic, although it is never confirmed. Apart from the fact that he gets superpowers, I’d say that he’s pretty realistic. As an autistic person myself I didn’t at all mind how he was portrayed.

All of reality and creation are destroyed throughout season 3. There are also several rewrites of reality via time travel through seasons 1 and 2.

S3 An autistic character frequently gets sensory overload and the sounds are amplified/distorted during these scenes to convey this. In S3E4 especially there’s a lot of high pitched high frequency feedback sounds. In S3E1 it’s also a baby crying.

Main character Klaus is often shown having flashbacks or nightmares because of trauma he's suffered due to his powers and his father. These usually send him into having some sort of anxiety or panic attack until he uses drugs to stop them.

No, but in S2E4 there are two eating scenes that might be uncomfortable to see. They are normal scenes but the food is just in the main role and the eating is graphic. There are probably eating scenes in other episodes, too.

Season 3, there is somewhat amplified baby crying in the background on a bus. A man is experiencing visible discomfort at the noise and plays some ambient sounds on a tape to drown it out.

Heavy use of strobe effect! S1E1: Fluorescent lights start flashing during a fight scene (51:00-53:00). S1E2: Harsh flashing fluorescent lights and police sirens (10:30-14:30). Machine guns create strobe effect in the dark (49:30-51:30). S1E4: White strobe (23:40-24:05). Short but bright flashing blue light (50:54-50:57). S1E5: Harsh strobe lights (18:45-19:25). S1E6: Short but bright flashing blue light (54:50-55:00). S1E7: Red/blue strobe lights (29:08-32:36, 39:50-40:40). S1E8: Fast but fairly dim strobe (23:06-24:00). S1E9: Fluorescent lights flash with varying speed and intensity (30:55-33:58, 37:16-37:26, 37:58-38:06, 40:20-43:25). S1E10: White strobe with increasing intensity (3:18-3:38). Two major fight scenes (26:35-27:52, 35:50-37:57). Harsh blue strobe (44:00-45:25). S2E8: One quick flash followed by white strobe (37:20-38:00). Harsh white strobe that intensifies quickly (42:40-end of episode).

No characters within the show are misgendered, but as previously stated, trans actor Elliot Page plays a female character. She/her pronouns are only used on the character Vanya and not Elliot, however there is content related to the show that uses his deadname and incorrect pronouns that were made prior to his coming out. Netflix has since changed the credits to his correct name, but it is something to keep in mind when watching older content about the series.

Note that season 2 takes place during the civil rights movement. Black characters are harassed/assaulted by white people (such as during a sit-in) and arrested. S2E3 shows police brutally beating a Black man, though someone manages to save his life.

In season 2, episode 4, someone calls Klaus a "Queer" amongst other homophobic insults in a derogatory way. This may be considered a slur to some, and based on the setting (1963) was definitely used as a slur towards him.

The Commission has been criticized as antisemitic due to The Handler speaking Yiddish. She does so twice in season 1. The Commission also generally has themes of “shadow organization controlling the world” which can evoke antisemitic conspiracy theories. This is somewhat controversial but reading it as antisemitic is valid.
Aside from that, in season 2 a main character makes a brief comment about “lizard people”.

Klaus dresses in an androgynous way but it is not played for laughs. A joke is made about him wearing a skirt, but the punchline is that he stole it, not the skirt itself.

Two characters who were raised together as siblings kiss in a version of time, but due to time travel stuff time gets reversed and it never really happens.
The characters shared no blood connection and were raised in a way that could make the relationship seem more cute cliche than creepy, had it not referred to them all as siblings constantly every episode. There is no possible way to call it anything but incest, which is really my only complaint about the whole series.

There is a man in season 2, who is shown briefly when Allison wanders into an alleyway and he is seen urinating. She apologizes to him, and he sort of grunts and walks away, pushing a shopping cart with assorted things in it. He is not explicitly stated to be homeless, but I believe the scene paints the picture of him being homeless clearly enough.

Too much to be listed here. Lots of characters are shot, stabbed, cut, injured in accidents, hit by shrapnel, beaten up, etc. Notable scenes - S1E1: Five makes a deep cut in his arm and digs his fingers into it to remove a tracking device. S1E3: Five gives himself stitches. S1E6: A character gets shot in the chest and is shown choking on blood. S1E8: A character's throat gets slashed. S1E9: A flashback to someone's throat being slashed. A character is stabbed in numerous locations. S1E10: A character is impaled. A character is shot in the head. A character is beaten up pretty badly and has gashes on her face. S2E2: Two men get stabbed. S2E5: Someone is blown up and parts of his body are scattered. S2E6: A man is found dead with multiple objects stabbed in him. S2E7: Twelve people are killed with an axe, and someone's eye is stabbed. S2E10: Many people killed with a machine gun.
