It's mentioned at one point that Magnus saved an animal (a dog, i believe) that some kids were beating on.

There's a repeated joke about chambers filling with snakes in the Crystal Kingdom arc.

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

In the Wonderland arc, a character loses a finger, but they get it back later on.

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

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

In petals to the metal, a minor character is compelled to hit their partner in the head with a hammer. There’s some detail regarding the act.

(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 SPOILERS FOR CRYSTAL KINGDOM] One of the bosses the main characters fight, Legion, is a literal pile of ghosts which escape from the Astral Plane.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Not a plane, but there are two instances of an air transport vehicle crashing

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.

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

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