There is a quest where a child hires you to kill an orphanage he was staying in because the woman that runs the orphanage was abusive towards the children, though he never does anything to her himself. That's the closest I can think of

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.

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.

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.

Your hands are bound at the beginning of the game up until another character cuts you free. Multiple characters seen in the beginning of the game also have bound hands, and one is gagged. Several characters and/corpses can be found in cages. One character and many corpses are webbed up by spiders. During a Dark Brotherhood quest there are three characters whose hands have been bound and sacks are over their heads. When entering a specific city for the first time, a man with bound hands will be lead to be executed. There are many more examples...

A person cuts their hand to open a door, and if you follow the Dark Brotherhood questline, you injure your hand to open doors by placing it on a pedestal, where it stabs up through your hand. You can also find bloodied and plain skeleton hands in various places like caves and dungeons, but it is unclear as to the fate of the owners.

Beyond vampires, there are straight up cannibals in Skyrim. One quest line involves the player eating someone, and you may play alongside Eola, a cannibal. There are also innumerable caves with body parts strewn about even on plates on tables, strongly implying cannibalism has taken place.

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.

There are multiple points in the game during side quests that the player is rendered unconscious, such as the beginning of The Dark Brotherhood questline, where the Dragonborn is kidnapped while they sleep and taken to a shack in the middle of a swamp, the visual effect when waking up, blurred vision, implies you were knocked out to ensure your transportation.

Often in vampire hideouts, cannibal hideouts, Falmer caves, and in random caves. Blood, and bloodied skulls and hands. Various ingredients such as Human hearts, Dremora hearts, eye of sabrecat, spider eye, etc. include wet sound effects if you interact with them. If you follow a main questline with the Companions in Whiterun, killing the Glenmoril Witches in the Glenmoril Coven cave will allow you to acquire their heads. Once you loot them, you are stuck with their heads in your inventory until you fulfill the quest relating to them. Only then can you get rid of the extra heads. Looking at them in your inventory, flesh, bone, and spinal cord is visible.

Yes. If you fight the Civil War, there are major, somewhat important characters that can die. A few major villains/antagonists die.. A few characters related to specific quest lines die as part of the story. Probably more that i’m forgetting (Counting the content added by the DLCs, as well as base game content)

Brunwulf Free-Winter and Ulfric Stormcloak, both found in Windhelm, reference their experience in the Great War in a way that implies PTSD but doesn't outright state it, with quotes like "There's no glory in war. It's just something they tell soldiers so they'll risk their lives" and "I fight for we few who did come home, only to find our country full of strangers wearing familiar faces".

If you choose to play the Civil War questline, in the first quest after the Battle for Whiterun, your fellow soldier will ask you if you also have nightmares about the screams from the battle.

In the Dark Brotherhood questline you're given a choice to kill a woman in Windhelm for a bonus reward. If you do, a few in-game days later you will find her mother's body and suicide note in the family house (which you may be required to break into for another quest)

Any Talos priest, especially the unavoidable one in Whiterun, shouts to the point of voice breaking a lot and sounding rough. It bothers an autistic person I know, but she deals with it by lowering the TV volume, muting, or running past him.

In the beginning cutscene, a guy panics, realizing they were being taken to be put to death. He further tries to flee once he's out of the wagon, where he is then shot by arrows.

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.)

There is a woman in Windhelm who will commit suicide if her daughter is killed during a quest. NPCs in the city who knew the character can occasionally comment on this as you walk past them.

When you level up, there's a "Hoo, hoouh" and loud ring of swords clashing.
Daedric prince voices are louder than anything else, especially when you find Meridia's beacon and follow that quest. Also Hermaus Mora, the creepy, many-eyed octopus-like daedric prince of knowledge.

Yes. SPOILERS AHEAD. Most of them are optional sidequests given in Raven Rock, Ivarstead and for the Thieves Guild (during The Pursuit and The Dainty Sload); falmer caves often have lakes and rivers and underwater passages. There's only two you can't avoid IIRC. In the Dragonborn DLC during The Path of Knowledge you explore a submerged Dwemer ruin and at one point it's almost inevitable to swim underwater to progress the quest. In one of the main quests for the Thieves Guild the room you're in starts to fill with water and it's hard to find the exit before it fills completely, so it's almost impossible not to end up underwater.

At various points in the game, different spells or effects cause bright flashes. There are also several cutscenes which feature bright flashes. I don't believe there are any repeated flashes.

The closest thing is that during one quest called The Mind of Madness, in Pelagius's Mind; there is an attractive-looking woman called "Sultry Maiden" who doesn't have any voice lines and doesn't have much relevance to the quest, but in early versions of the game she had a deep male voice, and that may have been some small attempt at a transphobic joke, but it was very hard to notice even when it was in 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)

In the Dark Brotherhood quest line, your first contract option is to kill a homeless man named Narfi who seems to have some developmental disability, based on the dialog options, voice-acting and other context (including a separate side quest involving Narfi not knowing his sister/ caregiver is unable to return to him because she died). Some might interpret murdering the disabled guy as ableist behavior. It's not clear who ordered the contract or why but seems implied someone in his community considers him a nuisance and wants him gone. He has no weapons or ability to defend himself.

To avoid triggers, don't download or install the Dawnguard and Solstheim add-ons. You have frequent encounters on the mainland with the equivalent of hellhounds, seen as black and grey with red, glowing eyes, described as colder than death. On the island continent of Solstheim, you encounter fire zombies with red, glowing eyes (using fire won't work on them) that look caked in ash and melted wax (reminiscent of corpse wax -- don't look it up, please just trust me on this).
Others are: Gargoyles, seekers, Hermaus Mora, daedric lords you can summon or fight, and following the vampire's questline going through a portal into the Soul Cairn.

Santa (et al) are not mentioned in this game. However, there are some fan-made mods which introduce "Saturalia", an in-universe equivalent of Christmas, including Father Saturalia and his workshop.
