S7E10 has a dangerous spider get loose in the studio. It's shown in pictures early on and shown live at the very end of the episode after the credits.

Two men who work at animal control are stoned pretty much constantly throughout the show.

Some characters drink frequently but are never implied to abuse or have an alcoholism issue.

S3E16: A large fireball from a torch blows up in Ron's face. We see Ron and the fire from behind at a distance and without any detail; we later see he's fine except for some facial hair burning off.

S7E9 shows a character's head in a vice with the intent to make his eyes bulge. It's played for laughs and he doesn't appear to be in pain.

A low-quality animation during a news show in "Harvest Festival" depicts Leslie getting possessed by "the curse" and shows her with a creepy face afterwards.

There is vomiting in a few episodes. One is when Leslie drinks a giant soda. There is one vomit shown on screen when Andy is extremely hungover in the Snakejuice episode. No other vomit is shown besides that

Numerous characters become pregnant/require medical procedures, more often towards the end of the series.

S7E2 does have a character's abusive girlfriend force him to only eat steak and drink whisky in order to make him more like her ex-husband, even though it makes him sick. This might be triggering to some people.

Usually played off as comedy. There is a scene in season 2 where a character hyperventilates into a purse.

Jerry gets gaslit sometimes, mostly getting blamed for things he didn't do until he takes responsibility. It's played for laughs. In S6E17 April briefly mentions in high school that she spent her time "hiding mops so the janitor would think he was going insane."

Craig says this at one point, but does not mean so literally and regularly speaks in exaggerations.

The show is filmed in handheld documentary-style, so the camera is always slightly moving, only a few scenes have the camera move rapidly though.

S2E1 Leslie mistakenly marries two male penguins and the whole episode is about a woman wanting her to resign for her pro-gay stance, even if Leslie didn’t mean for it to be a pro-gay stance S5E6 “Ben’s Parents” April calls someone a lesbian insultingly

On the radio show "Crazy Ira and the Douche" they make racist and sexist jokes. Many people assume Tom is an immigrant because he isn't white. Milton asks Tom if he is Chinese as if he thinks it's a bad thing. Leslie does a racist thing to the local Native American people (the Wamapoke) but is forgiven by the chief, Ken. There are also lots of stereotypes about Native Americans, including that they're violent, the "built on an Indian burial ground" trope, and Ken owns the Wamapoke Casino.

Cops are typically portrayed in a positive light. Leslie also dates one in an earlier season.

One character violently verbally and sometimes physically assaults her ex-husband in an attempt to get him to sleep with her/return to her. It is heavily played for laughs but could still be upsetting to some viewers

It's mentioned that Ron's first wife knew him since he was born and started dating him when he was fifteen, which has implications of child grooming.
