Report
Xavier: Renegade Angel is an American CGI fantasy-comedy television series created by John Lee, Vernon Chatman, Jim Tozzi and Alyson Levy. Lee and Chatman are also the creators of Wonder Showzen. The show was produced by PFFR, with animation by Cinematico. It premiered at midnight on November 4, 2007, on Adult Swim, and November 1, 2007, on the Adult Swim website. Xavier features a style characterized by a nonlinear, incoherent plot following the humorous musings of an itinerant humanoid pseudo-shaman and spiritual seeker named Xavier. The show is known for its ubiquitous use of ideologically critical black comedy, surrealist and absurdist humor presented through a psychedelic, New Age lens. The program is also normally rated TV-MA for intense, graphic, often bloody violence, as well as strong sexual content, use of racially/ethnically offensive language, grotesque depictions and content that is considered "too morbid and too incomprehensible for young viewers" Xavier: Renegade Angel premiered on November 4, 2007, and ended on April 16, 2009, with a total of 20 episodes, as a result of being cancelled due to low ratings.

S1E4, "The 6th Teat of Good Intentions" (5:55-6:06)
S1E5, "Pet Siouxicide" (7:00-7:17)

Content warnings for both clips include child sexual abuse and bestiality. Played off as gags.

S1E5, "Pet Siouxicide", begins with a pet shop owner lamenting that he'll have to put various pets down due to his business failing. Xavier pays to keep him in business by spending the day with a rich man's child, so the pets presumably live.

Not unless you count several poodles interlocked into a humanoid shape getting punched back into individual poodles by a man coated in platinum

Many gags in the show invoke pedophilia in some form. Here are some major moments to avoid:

S1E4, "The 6th Teat of Good Intentions": onscreen zoophilic child sexual assault, 5:55-6:06

S1E5, "Pet Siouxicide": same as above, 7:00-7:17

S1E7, "Bloodcorn": Xavier remarks that an elderly-looking 14-year-old girl is "nice and legal", later tries and fails to initiate sex with her.

S2E1, "Vibracaust": prevalent topic within the episode. A child also assaults a priest and his adoptive parents off-screen.

Xavier’s mother who shows up in the flashbacks was shown as being incredibly physically, emotionally and possibly sexually abusive.

It is more so implied, but when Xavier goes back in time, he meets a cavewoman who is stated to be beaten by her husband with her body being covered in graphic wounds.

One episode has Xavier read the entrails of a squirrel he killed to his past self. The entrails say the squirrel died needlessly at the hands of a goon.

Plenty. Major moments off the top of my head:

S2E3, "Free Range Manibalism": interspersed throughout the entire first half of the episode.
S2E5, "Haunted Tonk": dead squirrel, 7:04-7:20

S1E5, "Pet Siouxicide", begins with a pet shop owner lamenting that he'll have to put various pets down due to his business failing; he appears to own some feline creatures. Xavier pays to keep him in business by spending the day with a rich man's child, so the pets presumably live. Later on, Xavier's supposed new "owner", a spoiled, wealthy boy, compares ridding the world of suffering to drowning a kitten.

A lot of it. Off the top of my head:

S1E4, "The 6th Teat of Good Intentions": Xavier throws up, 4:33-4:42

S2E1, "Vibracaust": Xavier's mother vomits in his mouth, 3:15-3:21

S2E2, "Xavier's Maneuver": multiple characters choke and are given the Heimlich maneuver, mostly at the beginning but also later in the episode

S2E3, "Free Range Manibalism": Aura vomits twice, once from 7:15-7:22, then from 8:38-8:47

S2E4, "El Tornadador": a man vomits at Xavier in the very beginning (1:10). For the rest of the episode, Xavier's snake-hand repeatedly vomits Xavier himself through its mouth, flipping his skin and other organs inside-out every time. Just avoid this episode altogether if vomit is a trigger.

S2E5, "Haunted Tonk": happens twice, once from 3:37-3:41, then from 9:25-9:30.

There is a lot of hate speech in this show, but mostly, if not always, played for laughs. Would recommend caution if this is a topic that upsets you.

In an attempt to defend a disabled kid, Xavier ends up saying some ableist things instead, such as calling the boy "weak" and various slurs.

Prevalent throughout the series within jokes and visual gags, including brief nudity. You see on-screen sexual assault twice (I've commented the specifics under the SA/CSA-related sections).
