One of the first big battles is with a very large spider.

TAZ is a podcast, so... No visual medium to use strobe effects.

Not exactly a car crash, but there is a battle wagon race in Petals to the Metal where lots of battle wagons crash

(slight crystal kingdom spoilers) Maureen Miller, Lucas Miller’s mother, is canonly dead. I don’t think it mentions her death in detail, but she is indeed dead.

(SPOILERS FOR STORY AND SONG) the audience is led to believe that lup, a trans character, is dead, but it’s revealed that she’s still alive

No explicit breaking of bones, but some characters are seriously injured to the point where they probably broke something

A character initiates his own death several times to become a lich in order not to forget events and people. Several other characters actions result in their own and many other people's deaths, but the intent is not suicide.

The other comment refers to another arc of this podcast, not Balance.

While no, there are scenes in which characters regain memories that could be interpreted as similar to seizures.

There is a brief instance where a main character (magnus) takes some sort of drug given to them by an npc.

A child character is repeatedly subjected to verbal abuse and on occasion death threats by the lead characters; this is played for comedy.

The entire town of Phandolin is burned alive at the end of the first chapter.

Memories are erased from our lead characters and information is withheld based on this in a manner that is treated as comparable to gaslighting. The lead characters also gaslight minor and unimportant characters with casual disregard for their wellbeing for trivial and selfish reasons; this is played for comedy.

In Balance Petals to the Metal, people are run over/hit by cars but they have safety vests that deploy bubbles to minimize injury. Keep in mind that this is auditory media and so there are only passing descriptions.

No in-game misgendering but there are a couple times when someone accidentally uses the wrong pronouns for a character in The Eleventh Hour (Roswell) and then corrects themselves

You could say there is some psychological torture in the Wonderland arc, but the episodes are kept pretty light

No, but the effects of the Phoenix Fire Gauntlet are fairly devastating and could be categorized as a weapon of mass-destruction.

As with previous comments, the gun violence occurs in another arc of The Adventure Zone, not Balance. That being said, the spell "Magic Missle" could be construed to be similar to a gun and is used frequently.

Sexual jokes are often made, including but not limited to: masturbation, getting h***y from murder, and plant sex.
