there are a lot of times where a supe kills someone in slow or horrible ways but I didn't catch them all they knock transluscent unconcious with a cattle prod several times, and there's screaming season 2 episode 1 has a disturbing torture mention at 39:40 In S2 E3 (51:00 - 53:00) Stormfront tortures kenji to death while calling him slurs (this one is extremely bad) In S2 E5 (17:30 - 18:30) Kimiko walks into the shop and then rips someone's face off, stabs, breaks bones, it was bad enough that I couldn't watch it

Yes, enough that I would not be able to name all of the instances if I tried. Do not watch the show if you aren’t prepared for creative, gratuitous, frequently surprise violence.

There is a scene where someone describes having sex with a ice powered superhero, and her powers activated during the intercourse and his genitals froze, it is not graphic and is only spoken about.

Episode 4 of the first season features a plane crash with children on board. A little girl holds a Disney-looking plastic baby doll in her arms, and you just keep seeing this girl clutching her doll while the passengers beg for their lives. The child ultimately dies, and you can tell because there’s a heartbreaking closeup of the now ruined doll among the debris from the crash.

Robin suddenly dies after A-Train accidentally collides with her, leaving blood and gore in his wake. The scene is incredibly sudden and comes straight after a sweet moment between Robin and Hughie.

Season 1 Episode 1: In the opening scene when an armoured truck is being destroyed, a man gets out of the truck and v*s onto the ground. It is not graphic but still visible. A young woman suddenly and audibly v*s into a toilet roughly 20 minutes in, however v* is not shown, you only see her knees under a toilet stall. Season 1 episode 7: A man v*s into a trash can somewhere between 9 and 9:30 mins after running on a track. V* is visible for about a second and very audible. Season 1 episode 8: A young woman is seen flirting drunkenly with a man at an event. She excuses herself and there is a sudden cut to her audibly V* into a toilet, however v* not shown. Season 2 episode 6: During CCTV footage, a man is shown v* acid onto a bed. This is sudden and visible through grainy CCTV footage. Characters are shown being trapped in a room in a hospital and one character decides to open the door. The acid v* man enters the room and v*s towards a man and then on himself. Look away for about 45 seconds to be safe. Graphic and unpleasant to watch.

Hughie has multiple anxiety and anger attacks relating to the death of his girlfriend, Robin. If you see A train on screen along with Hughie expect anger to happen.

Body Dysmorphia Disorder is a body-image disorder characterized by persistant and intrusive preoccupations with an imagined or slight defect in one's appearance. This means that the afflicted person cannot stop thinking negatively about their appearance, or aspects of it. It has nothing to do with shapeshifting. The Deep has serious body dysmorphia and depression because of his gills, and being assaulted in season 1 episode 7 makes it worse. In season 2 episode 2 he's given a drug that makes him hallucinate that his gills are talking to him, and they give him a long talk about how he has to learn to accept his body the way it is. His distress is very intense. In S2E3 (44:00) Homelander calls him disgusting and tells him to cover up

Please, be careful watching s02e05, after scene in the daylight on the movie set there is a quick cut to club scene with strobe lights.

S02E05 - very intense, direct, sudden strobe after hard cut, around 6min mark, right after Homelander shuts trailer door, for about two minutes. There is no epilepsy warning before the show or any ease-in before scene, if not for a friend who saw it earlier and warned me it would give me seizure as there is no time for reaction and closing one/both eyes is not enough to block it - it is INTENSE.

To clarify, the death mentioned in the previous comment is a lie told by a character and the woman didn’t die, however you are still visually shown this death in a fake flashback as if it’s real and it’s not confirmed to be a lie until several episodes later.

Gonna say no but Homelander seems to have an Oedipus complex thing happening with Stillwell in season one where he sees her as a mother figure and a romantic/sexual partner. In season 2 he finds a bottle of her breast milk and drinks it which is continuing to be a weird obsession with milk throughout the show. He is also jealous of her baby for a time, like an older sibling would be. (SPOILERS) He had Doppelganger morph into her after her death to enact fantasies with. Just definitely some weird pseudo-incest stuff happening that is worth a warning.

Female character is coerced into performing oral sex on a male character. Male character is tricked into sex by a shape-shifting character who makes him wear a blindfold and then shifts back into male shape and films the encounter. Male character is assaulted by a female character - genitals aren't involved, but it is clearly presented as and intended as a sexual assault and accompanied by upsetting dialogue.

Numerous instances although because they are mostly used on completely bulletproof characters who have literally no physical or emotional reaction to being shot, there are very few instances of any injuries or deaths caused by guns. The closest I can think of is starlight being shot twice and knocked over by the recoil.
