Some taxidermy (or at least presumed taxidermy) is seen, too, including mounted animal heads that come to life.

Quentin Trembley discovers the town of Gravity Falls after plummeting into it at high speed in on the back of a horse, so the horse presumably dies. The best 7th 1/2 president a country could ask for. “The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man-eating spiders!” -Sir Lord President Quentin Trembley III Esquire

There is an episode where a shapeshifter turns into a deformed spider-like creature and there is an episode with a woman who can turn into a spider.

There's also that scene in Weirdmageddon where Preston Northwest (Pacifica's dad)'s face gets literally rearranged, with all the orifices switched around.

Kids are put in danger several times, though, most notably the two main protagonists of the show. Also, several clones of children have died, although I don't think that really counts. "Summerween" features a child that is eaten by a monster, but he is later revealed to have survived, and he happily claims that he was traumatized.

Season 2 Eps. 19-21: Multiple residents of Gravity Falls are turned to stone by eyebats, and kidnapped from the streets for the throne of Bill Cipher (which he unfortunately never uses). Season 2 Ep. 17: Stanford Pines is kidnapped by a security droid from the UFO in Gravity Falls, but is saved by Dipper. Some other examples of characters being held hostage: Tourist Trapped: Mabel is kidnapped and tied down by gnomes. Double Dipper: the Dipper copies lock Dipper classic (the real Dipper) in a closet. The Deep End: there is a boy in solitary confinement in the pool. Boyz Crazy: Mabel keeps Sev’ral times hostage in the attic of the Mystery Shack. Land Before Swine: Waddles is kidnapped by a pterodactyl. The Golf War: Pacifica is kidnapped by the Lilliputians to win Mabel’s favor (and is planned on being killed). Little Gift Shop of Horrors: Stan’s hands are taken from him by a hand witch. Society of the Blind Eye: multiple characters are kidnapped throughout the episode including Lazy Susan, Dipepr, Mabel, Wendy, Soos, and Fiddleford (Old Man) H. Mcgucket. Blendin’s Game: Dipper and Mabel are kidnapped by the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Sqaudron and Blendin Blenjamin Blandin, and forced to partake in Globnar. Not What he Seems: Stan is taken into custody by the government. Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons: Dipper and Stanford are captured by Probabilitor (the wizard) and planned to have their brains eaten. The Stanchurian Candidate: Dipper and Mabel are kidnapped by a possessed (by Lil’ Gideon) Bud Gleeful and put in a mountain to be trapped.

Several sock puppets are torn apart by an explosion. However, this scene caused little to no hard feelings for the owner of said sock puppets.

No, but episode 10 ("Fight Fighters") has mentions of someone's father being killed. This is more for comedic effect, and a parody of how one or both parents of a fictional character are often deceased. Additionally, Stan and Ford's parents died offscreen at some point, and there is a brief mention about Soos's grandfather being dead (and it's indirectly mentioned that he's in hell).

The most notable incident is probably the episode "Sock Opera", in which Dipper is possessed by the series villain for most of the day, while Dipper follows his body around as a ghost. The demon abandons this by the end of the episode, when Dipper's body is too tired to keep up. No permanent damage is done, though.

The antagonists of the show tend to stalk others constantly, a notable instance is in the episode "Soos and the Real Girl", where Soos finds out that a video game character has been stalking him.

The episodes The Inconveniencing and Northwest Manor Noir have ghosts as a central part of the plot

There are probably more instances than this, but in "Summerween", two children show Stan a jumpscare video; it starts off with a video of a kitten, but quickly cuts to a video showing a monster. It's not too scary, but I can see this being potentially upsetting to those who have been tricked into watching these kinds of videos.

First episode a character gets thrown against a tree and when they get back up they vomit. It is shown as a rainbow. I believe there are also some instances of characters making retching sounds but not showing anything beyond that.

There is an episode featuring Dipper struggling with how he feels about his body being "unmanly".

Dipper has a lot of anxiety and at one point almost even shoots someone (in self defense) during an anxiety attack. Also another character is at one point during a flashback shown to be extremely paranoid and threatens someone with a crossbow.

Several antagonists are gaslighters. In "Sock Opera", Bill Cipher tries to get Dipper to stop trusting his family. In "Soos and the Real Girl", Giffany attempts to manipulate Soos into staying with her forever, claiming that he could never find a real love interest. Gideon also constantly gaslights other people by pretending to be innocent, but eventually gets his comeuppance in the season 1 finale and later redeems himself.

I don't think anyone in the show is even explicitly confirmed to be autistic.

During the episode "Sock Opera", when Dipper is possessed, the demon possessing him has Dipper hurt himself in various ways, including stabbing his arm with forks, deliberately falling down a staircase, and slapping himself. The demon seems to enjoy this, stating that "Pain is hilarious!"

Some of the shorts were animated to appear as if they were filmed by the characters themselves. This includes some shakey cam.

This is a show aimed at kids, so obviously there isn't anything explicitly sexual, but innuendos and adult humor are fairly frequent. Very mild nudity in nonsexual contexts is occasionally seen, and puberty is sometimes referenced as well, to name a few.

No, but in "Boss Mabel", Soos approaches a woman while he's in a fairly revealing outfit. He has no intent of doing any harm, but she is shocked by his behavior and begins pepper spraying him. Gideon is also seen harassing Mabel on multiple occasions, though nothing too out of line happens.

no, but the fandom has a major ship that is incestuous, which the creator himself has denounced.

Not really, but there is a deformed clone of Dipper that is mostly played as a joke, which is shown in the episode "Double Dipper". Also, McGucket is often called "the local kook".

The mention of Wax Larry King being a goblin was likely unintentional, as the creator of the show is very pro equal rights and (if I recall correctly) he's Jewish himself. I don't even remember that being said, and it's possible that the line was cut.

In S1:EP20, Dipper and Mable get the gnomes to help them by promising that Gideon is an even prettier girl than Mable and he is referred to as 'she' for the next few minutes.

Soos the handyman admits to being called "Big Dude" by Robbie, which hurt his feelings. He's also on occasion been called a "large hairless gopher" by Ford and possible others, saying "he gets that a lot." Stan has also self depreciatedly refereed to himself as fat and out of shape.

No, but in episode 2 Stan tells the joke "My ex-wife still misses me, but her aim is getting better!", and follows it up with "It's funny because marriage is terrible", which sort of alludes to domestic abuse.

A car crash is explicit shown in S2E11, when the main characters intentionally crash an antagonists car to escape it.

There are a few scenes with a sci-fi style gun wielded by one character, but no bullets, gunfights, or serious gore involved. The only uses of that gun, as far as I can recall, are an unsuccessful attack on the main villain, and the scene at the end silently threatening the bus driver.
