Many dead animals, even if you don't kill them yourself. You will stumble across them in the wilderness. They include sabrecats, bears, foxes, goats, and deer.

There are many other animals in Skyrim such as chickens, wolves, foxes, hawks, and etc. Some of them are programmed to be killed in certain events, and some NPCs will be seen hunting them.

It depends on whether you consider wolf fighting rings to be abuse. The quests concerning these rings are entirely optional but are easy to stumble upon in normal gameplay.

Some bandit/enemy camps double as dog fighting rings, usually using wolves instead of the ingame dog models. It's not always easy to tell until you are outside the camp.

Horses are common in Skyrim and are almost always killable. (You can kill Shadowmere but she respawns at her death place after a while) and in Helgen, a dragon is shown to kill a horse in the middle of the town.

There are no cats in Skyrim that resemble housecats, but there are giant sabrecats that are often hunted by NPCs but they don't resemble cats very much other than their paws and body structure.

In Skyrim, dragons are a common enemy, and you are forced to kill many of them such as Alduin, the main antagonist.

At the beginning of the intro level, depending on the path you take, a character mentions the idea of "giant snakes", though none ever show up in the game.

A few characters are addicted to alcohol, and a few are addicted to the drug Skooma - one optional side quest has you retrieving some Skooma for an addict who is experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

Skooma is a common drug in Skyrim, and there are many quests involving skooma addicts. In the Redwater Den added by the Dawnguard DLC, there is a dead khajiit bandit who died from skooma overdose.

There are many drunk NPCs in Skyrim that spend their septims on ale and mead, and often ask the player for some money.

When opening Skyhaven Temple, the player cuts their hand with a dagger and uses the blood to open the door. This is all shown in an animation.

The Thalmor can be found torturing Stormcloaks in their embassy, and in the Dark Brotherhood questline, you have the chance to torture some people until they give you money.

Giants' toes can be harvested for use in alchemy, although there is no animation or gore involved.

Optional, but in the character creation screen, the player can choose to give their character scars over their eyes, which could imply mutilation depending on the player's personal lore for the character.

If you follow the Dark Brotherhood questline, there is a head-squashing.

In some places, you can find burnt corpses. (Ex. In Helgen some burnt corpses are found, burnt to death by a dragon.)

Sabre cat teeth are an alchemy ingredient that can be looted from enemy sabre cats, alchemists, or found in loot containers such as alchemist pouches. Mammoth tusks are a similar item, and although they are not an alchemy ingredient, they are requested by NPCs in a few minor quests as crafting materials. Horker tusks are also similar to mammoth tusks, but can be ignored entirely, as they can only be sold to general goods stores or used to craft optional mounted trophies if the player wishes to add that to a Hearthfire DLC home. There is no gore on the models, however, and looting an enemy's teeth or tusks does not affect its corpse in any way.

As other comments show, there are storyline child deaths. In gameplay outside of quests however, children cannot be harmed outside of Player-made modifications to the game.

In the Companions questline, one of the possible side quests is to go rescue a random NPC who was kidnapped and bring them home safely.

At the first scene in Helgen you’ll see a boy and his father. Later in the game you can encounter said boy who will say that his father has died. You are also capable of killing the parents of some children

In a special dungeon, there are thralls kept by a man whose will is trapped inside of soul gems. If the soul gem is removed from the pedestal, the thralls will turn on their master and attempt to kill him for imprisoning them.

In the Thieves Guild questline you have to stalk Gulum Ei, an Argonian dockworker.

There are lots of ghosts found in Skyrim, as NPCs in quests are random encounters in dungeons. There's even children spirits in some quests.

Many of the dungeons are very dark and enemies can sometimes come out when you don't expect them too. This happened quite a lot to me however the game is usually pretty good about giving you audio cues for enemies.

The character named Ceciro is a murderous Jester who is very clown-like and very creepy.

The afflicted are a group of mortals cursed/blessed by the Daedric Prince of disease, Peryite. They have the ability to projectile vomit poison on opponents.

Some places of worship are populated with comatose sick people being tended to by priests, but the resemblance to a hospital ends there as they lack any modern technology.

There is a quest called Discerning The Transmundane in which blood of an extinct elf species is needed to open a box. You can synthesize the blood you need using blood from all the other elf species still alive, and the device used looks like a box made of four tubes with needles sticking out.

In many dungeons, it's very crowded or small. And if you get arrested in Skyrim, many jail cells are very small. (Especially the one in Windhelm.)

An orc will stand on the roadside, awaiting a good death (IE, in combat with a powerful monster or warrior). You can offer to be his good death if you so choose.

In order to open a door during a main questline as well as in Dawnguard and a few other scenes, the player character must slit/impale their own hand to draw blood. This is shown onscreen.

No character is explicitly called out as LGBT, but the player character and some NPCs (revealed to be LGB by being same-gender romance options) can die during gameplay.

there might be one somewhere in the billion lines of dialogue but it's not the sort of thing in the vast majority of the game

Bandits may often yell at you depending on your race. (Ex. 'You'll make a fine rug, cat! if you're a khajiit) (Ex. "Die, you Orc filth!" if you're an orc)

Underneath Dragonsreach, there is the skeleton of an unknown person, floating in the water. The player can drown if they are underwater for a long period of time.

If the player jumps or falls from a high place, they can be killed by the fall damage. NPCs can also be "Fus-Ro-Dah"d from high places, which can kill them.

When fighting, there is alot of blood, and you can even decapitate your opponents, and in some quests, you can harvest human flesh and human hearts.
