It is often easier to list the characters whose parents were not abusive. If you count well-meaning but still harmful parenting, your options grow even more limited, if not non-existent.

In one of the support conversations between Hubert and the professor, Hubert is shown to have been secretly tailing him or her, potentially plotting to assassinate them on suspicion of their perceived treachery.

Hubert is implied to be watching numerous other characters from the shadows in a number of his support conversations, such as Bernadetta's.

There is quite a lot of manipulation in this game-- lies, conflicting stories, propaganda, and self-serving narratives abound. However, there are no instances of gaslighting as a specific manipulation tactic being used against any of the characters in the game.

Lysithea, Bernadetta, Sylvain, and Edelgard all experience some type of abuse in their childhoods. They never show anything, but they do end up discussing it as the game progresses. It takes more effort/time to learn about some of the characters’ stories compared to others.

Throughout the course of the game, you may choose to make certain units cavalry classes, and several enemies ride horses as well. If these units die, so do their horses, but no gore is shown at any point.

There are dragons for sure. Lots of them. The missions in the desert do include worm/snake-like creatures. So if you're scared of snakes, I would avoid these battles (they're additional battles). 'Monsters in the desert' is one of them.

There is a cutscene in which a parent is explicitly killed in front of their child and shares their dying moments with them. In the Blue Lion's route only, a parent's dying words can be heard in a scene and another parent dies while sharing their dying moments with a character they view as their child. Many other parental figures die off screen or are mentioned to have died in the past through supports or throughout the story.

Nobody is possessed but the main character, Byleth, has some sort of entity inside of them/in their mind. However, this entity never wishes any harm towards them and always acts in ways to help them. They are friendly with each other (despite the being having a scolding nature) and grow to be fond of one another.

The player is placed in a position of enforcing the central authority of an organisation and made to fight people with legitimate grievances against the central authority, but the medieval setting distances this authority from modern police structures, and no equivalences are drawn through metaphor.

In one of the routes, a major dark-skinned character is said to have been killed off-screen, and only survives if you meet requirements (completing a bonus quest on one of their missions) beforehand. This is the only story-related (aka, not based on running out of HP) death to the main playable characters in your group.

The fictional "Duscar" race of people face heavy discrimination from other ethnic groups. Several characters erroneously accuse them of being responsible for a tragedy, and verbally express their disgust with them. Duscars are portrayed as looking like black people while the dominant group which hates them is white. The depictions of racism in the game are supposed to be negative and wrong, and it fully acknowledges that racial bias is bad.

Yes. There are six explicitly bisexual characters - Edelgard, Dorothea, Mercedes, Rhea, Sothis, and Linhardt. Of those six, two of them have unavoidable story deaths in certain paths, three of them can die if permadeath is on or if the player doesn't recruit them on certain paths, and one of them is complicated, to say the least. There are other characters who cannot marry a player character of the same gender, but have paired endings with same-gender characters that are heavily implied to be romantic. Those characters are, again, a mix of "unavoidable story death on certain paths" and "only dies to permadeath or not being recruited."

A character's mental illness is ofter played for laughs during their support conversations, and they are often forced out of their comfort zone while explicitly not consenting to it. Their backstory also involves having been abused for not fitting someone's idea of who they should be (it's not entirely clear if this abuse took place on the basis of their mental health problems or if it was the cause).

You can also date fellow faculty members, but even then they are in their forties (at least implied in Manuela's case, it's not really clear otherwise) and sixties respectively and the MC is 20 at the start of the game. Also at Jaywell...your comment is still mostly true ,but it accidentally implies that Blyeth is much older than they actually are. Like your point on the student-teacher dynamic still stands ,but it's a bit more complicated than that

Technically, yes. There are 3 routes (Blue Lions, Golden Deer, Black Eagles, and the Church route (last two can be grouped under “Black Eagles”)). The route you choose will always have a happy ending for your house (group) but the other houses (groups) will not. Unless you recruit characters from other houses (have them join you early on), then most of them will have to die.

There are several mentions of blood, the first cutscene of the game shows Seiros holding a bloody sword which proceeds to smear onto her face. The cutscene after the first half of the boss battle in chapter 5 has body horror with visuals of a character turning into a beast.
