Abandonment

Up to player discretion. [SPOILERS] On the final day of the game, you are given the opportunity to say goodbye to all your friends and confidants but you can also just leave without saying goodbye. The Phantom Thieves see you off in the final cutscene anyway, but your other friends won’t.

When you confront the Fortune Teller after she scams you, you will overhear a conversation she’s having with a women who is being abused by her husband, who makes excuses for why he hits her and refuses to leave him because he “won’t survive alone” and the fortune teller foreseeing that if their current relationship continues, she will wind up hospitalised from domestic violence. The protagonist intervenes by stealing the abusers heart and preventing further incidents. Additionally although this doesn’t quite qualify as forgiving, Yusuke lives in denial over his caretaker/teachers abuse for a long period of time before snapping out of it and seeing him for the monster he is.

A young girl is literally gaslighted by the government to have believed that she was responsible for her mother's death.

Several other characters lie throughout the plot. Even the protagonist is technically gas-lighting his parental guardian by claiming to not be involved with the Phantom Thieves, which he is.

Addiction

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 character who takes the form of a talking cat feeling sad is a minor plot point, although it is resolved fairly quickly. Shadows who are feline in appearance will also sometimes get sad when the player is bargaining with them. Neither instances are particularly emotional.

Mishima is beat up by his PE teacher purely because he’s not very good at volleyball. Throughout the entire first storyline, his face is constantly seen bruised and bandaged and he acts very depressed and apathetic. Also in the prologue when the protagonist is captured, one of the police officers beats the protagonist while he is restrained, clearly getting off on the power he has.

The main character is detained by the police - the frame narrative of the game is that he is being held and interrogated about the actions that lead to it. The Velvet Room (a supernatural location the main character visits in his dreams) is also depicted as a jail cell he is being held in, and the personas themselves also have some imagery of restraints/chains, especially during persona fusion

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.

There is violence throughout the game but quite minimal blood. The most notable scenes of gore are when characters unlock their persona powers - a mask appears in their face and they must rip it off, and it is seen to hurt and cause some blood.

**SPOILERS**
There is also a scene where a character is shot in the head, blood is seen

[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.

Not in the sense of things attacking you out of nowhere (though random encounters may be startling if you don’t see them coming), 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.

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.

Not transgenders, but two cross dressers try at two different points in the game to force Ryuji to participate in cross dressing without his consent, even chasing him at one point. There is a supporting character who is a positive representation of a cross dresser who is treated respectfully and normally by the other characters, but that doesn’t excuse how these other two are depicted.

Maruki’s ex-girlfriend is hospitalised because of her severe PTSD after witnessing her whole family being murdered. She has a panic attack when Maruki accidentally triggers her PTSD while trying to calm her. Kasumi is repressing traumatic memories of her sister’s death because she is unable to deal with the weight of being partly responsible for her death.

Not explicitly stated but Futaba is heavily autistic coded. She’s treated respectfully by the main characters although a major plot point is that a group of antagonists gaslight her into thinking she was the cause of her mother’s suicide, when in reality her mother didn’t commit suicide and was actually murdered to protect classified research.

A major plot element involves travelling into an alternate dimension where the usual rules of reality don’t apply. The climax of the game has these two realities fuse and affect the real world. The bonus Royal storyline is entirely focused on the protagonist waking up one day to find the lives of his friends have all completely changed in a way that makes no sense, such as Futaba’s mother suddenly being alive and with her the whole time and Morganna being human, with no explanation and the other characters acting like this has always been the case when it hasn’t. Only the protagonist and one other character are aware of this for an extended period of time.

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

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.

The screen briefly flashes to an inverted colour when the protagonist is presumably shot dead in the previously mentioned scene. One of the last palaces is a Casino (which you also see during the flashforward prologue)

A character listens in on the main characters through a bug without them realising and hacks into their group chats to read through their messages. They later on hack themselves into their group chats and directly contact them without being invited into it several times. It’s heavily implied that the black mask is watching the phantom thieves throughout the game. He even verbally stated himself that he was secretly investigating every person in Joker’s life to find the best opportunity to frame him. Also the ending implies that Joker is now on a government/police watch list and will likely be followed and monitored by them for a long time, which is further proven in the spinoff sequel Persona 5 Strikers.

If you choose the dialogue where you refuse to acknowledge that the game is a work of fiction, a voice will say you're not allowed to play the game and send you back to the main menu.

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.

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.

There are a pair of very minor characters that are stereotypes of gay men, including feminine speech, makeup and clothing (although it is not literally a dress). During their (fortunately brief) time on screen, they make unwanted advanced towards a male main character, and exist solely for the purpose of jokes at their expense and jokes trivializing male on male sexual assault. The undated re-release Persona 5: Royal makes them more sympathetic, but they remain very stereotypical.

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.

Numerous Enemy Shadows and Ally Personas take the forms of religious figures and deities from various religions, including Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism etc. The ultimate persona the protagonist gets for one of the final bosses is heavily based on Satan.

While not exactly scenes, some of the demons that appear regularly in gameplay are somewhat nude. One is essentially a giant penis.

Multiple supporting and background characters suffer a fictional “mental shutdown” illness that causes a person’s brain function to completely cease, causing black bile to leak from their face and killing them. This is not an airborne virus or disease but rather something intentionally triggered by corrupt high-up government and police officials via supernatural means.

There’s a scene where the principal is hit and killed by a truck while suffering a mental shutdown. The truck driver sees him at the last second, tries braking hard to stop the truck before hitting him causing the tyres to screech and repeatedly honking the horn to get him to move but still hits him.

In the Royal expanded version of the game, A high school girl is hit and killed by a car. The impact isn’t shown but her bloody corpse after the impact is. Also earlier in the game in both versions, a man has a mental shutdown as he is crossing the street and is hit and killed by a truck. Also in Mementos, you begin combat with monster enemies by ramming into them with your car.

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.
