Many enemies resemble bugs. A boss transforms into a fly-like creature.

In a side quest there is a man who repeatedly abuses and kills alley cats. Additionally there is a scene where a main character cat tries to save another character who is in danger and ends up being harshly kicked against a wall. The cat survives but it could still be a pretty disturbing moment.

At the start of the game, the player character is drugged by police forces during his interrogation. Early on in the story, the player visits a back-alley doctor, and is able to purchase medicines from her to heal the party during dungeon-crawling segments, in return for being her test subject on an experimental new drug.

A major character talks about his alcoholic abusive father. A supporting character you can talk to is almost always seen very drunk and talks about abusing alcohol to relieve stress.

You can use fire-based attacks to kill enemies, and some enemies in turn use fire-based attacks that could kill the player character.

Not technically a seizure but a character is seen breaking down and losing control of their motor functions in a rather disturbing scene

A main character broke his leg from the abuse of a teacher. Additionally at the start of the game if you initially refuse to sign a confession under your name a police officer stomps on your leg and it makes a snapping/crunching noise very reminiscent of breaking a leg.

At the beginning of the interrogation scene the protagonist is drugged and beaten up by police officials. In a palace there are "dungeons" of students going through different types of torture to symbolize how the teacher abuses those students in the real world.

Offscreen multiple major characters have deceased parents. On screen the father of a major character dies however he is very clearly depicted as a villain.

[SPOILERS] At a certain point in the game, the main character will appear to have been shot in the head point-blank, and you can see blood running down his face as well as in a puddle under his head on the table. Near the end of the game, another teenager sacrifices himself to save the others, and while this is not seen, you can hear him being shot multiple times followed by a character confirming that she can no longer receive a signal from him.

you can choose to do so as the main protagonist. this will have consequences come valentine's day in-game, particularly if you decide to date every available girl in the game. this consequence has no bearing on the plot, however.

The main characters have "personas," which are effectively demons that represent their internal spirits manifested outside of their bodies to give them fighting powers. Especially in their introductory scenes of "awaking" their personas, this can seem a little bit like possession, though it is not exactly the case. A main part of the mystery also includes "mental shutdowns," where people lose control of themselves and act erratically, which [SPOILER] is revealed to have been caused intentionally by a third party.

The boys are seen chilling in a Japanese-style public bath house, and your male player character can go back any time you choose.

Not in the sense of things attacking you out of nowhere, but there is a particular cutscene after Okumura’s palace where a character is well one minute and then very abruptly begins dying, and there is a zoom on his face which has become very disturbing in appearance.

Definitely not fart, but iirc, some Persona awakening scenes - you can see drool. It's not spitting, it's just drool.

You can attack enemies with electric-based skills, but it is in no way representative of electro-therapy

No mental institutions are shown, however a character you can talk to mentions their friend being in one.

It depends. A character is autistic-coded, and it is implied that she was verbally abused by men in black suits following her mother's death, and then neglected by an uncle of hers following her mother's death.

“Igor” gaslights the protagonist and Akechi throughout the entire game. Shido orchestrates most of the Phantom Theives success in order to manipulate them and the general public, the new semester in the Royal version of the game revolves around completing altering the mental state and reality of a person in order to grant them eternal happiness free from suffering. Although the intent behind this is good, this is still gaslighting and the game clearly paints this to be in the wrong.

The player frequently crawls through ventilation shafts, during which the camera will switch to a first person perspective.

Some sexual language is used and hinted at, and there's some nude demon characters, but no actual sexual content

not specifically stated outright, but two very minor characters appear who are very overt homophobic stereotypes. one main protagonist expresses slight disgust over the implications of these two.

Nothing hateful is said about Gay people; but there is one scene of comic relief where two gay stereotypes pursue a straight character who is clearly upset by their advances. The re-release of the game "Persona 5 Royal" changes the scene to make these two characters more sympathetic, but still stereotypical.

Arguably, a lot people people think Ryuji has ADHD and he is shown repeatedly to be the butt of the joke.

A female character dresses up in lots of layers of clothing and the end result is very much reminiscent of a "haha she's fat" kind of joke.

There are unhappy endings, but these come as a consequence of failing to complete missions or making certain decisions.

A character is shot point-blank in the forehead with a pistol, and blood is seen pouring down their face and splattering onto a table. Other characters are killed by a fictional catastrophic illness which causes them to leak black bile from their face and die.

One main character has nuclear skills as her persona and when some are used a small explosion happen on an enemy. The main protagonist can use some of these powers as well.

Once you have reached a certain progression point in the game, you unlock a set of Gallows, where you can tribute one of your current Personas to power up another with higher stats, and a skill inherited from the sacrificed Persona.

A teacher is both mentioned and shows on screen physical and verbal abuse of his students. Additionally many characters have abusive parents that they talk about when you talk with them.

Yes, but this is during a panic attack which happens throughout the game, and also some cases where characters come down with a mysterious illness.
