There is a hunting scene in the first season where some pigs are killed and cooked, another scene where main character non lethally catches a bird with a fishing rod, and then a scene where a bunch of dogs run for their lives before their owner gets killed.

An entire arc revolves around giant mutated man eating insects --so yes, there are bugs.

No, but dogs are instructed to try to harm and kill humans. No dogs are harmed by humans, including in self defence.

In the first season, a hunter exam participant uses venomous snakes as a form of attack and sets up a trap involving many snakes trapping Gon, Leorio, Kurapika, and Ponzu in a cave by blocking the exit and threatening to bite.

Spiders are the symbol of the phantom troupe so there's a lot of like. Spider talk and spider imagery throughout the first few seasons.

Yes. Mostly for the purpose of murder/kidnapping or protection from murder. In episode 94 an adult woman tries to stalk a child with whom she was going on dates with after another child tries to said dates.

Killua comes from a family of assassins who abuse him, which he mentions nonchalantly most times, as if it is a usual occurrence. During the Zoldyck Family arc following the Hunter Exam arc, this is explicitly seen. Killua’s sister Alluka is also mistreated by their family.

Gaslighting, another way of saying emotional manipulation, happened most realistically with Killua’s abusive family dynamics shown later on. Clearly many kinds of supernatural villains do this in all kinds of fantastical situations, but for many, this bit might come too close to home.

A shutdown drugs making facility is shown. Two characters are weakly implied to use drugs, but have no signs of addition.

Leorio is stated to be underage (he's 19 at the beginning of the anime and 21 at the end) and briefly drinks in the York New arc.

(This whole explanation may contain spoilers even though I did my best to avoid them haha.)There are plenty of scenes with blood and injuries. The main protagonist is stubborn and often gets himself hurt. There is a scene where he lost about half of his arm, but he recovers quickly and keeps both arms. There is a whole arc where children are fighting adults, and while the children are usually more powerful than these adults, as they progress further it becomes more difficult for them and the main protagonist gets beat up a couple times. Also, in another arc there is quite a lot of death, both human and not. A dangerous man-eating hybrid species develops and a lot of people die due to this. In one scene a character gets their arm cut off by one of these creatures, and although it is not shown on screen, their head gets cut off and they die. (Since this is a pretty relative scene in the show, in this next part I’ll be as careful as possible when referring to characters to avoid spoilers haha.) One character becomes extremely angry over their friend’s death and uses their nen ability to grow and become as powerful as possible. They kill one of the creatures (rather brutally, though the creature doesn't have human blood) and ends up nearly dying themself. So overall, yes this show has gore.

Not to death, but someone's head is set on fire. It's not very graphic and he comes out fairly unscathed.

i dont think there is any medical amputation, but many characters lost limbs throughout the series . gon loses his arm twice, but it gets reattached each time . in a fight, hisoka loses both his arms, they are later reattached . in the third season, two minor characters are beheaded . kaito loses his arm and later his disembodied head is shown being held in neferpitous lap . king meruem cuts of his own arm . netero loses an arm and a leg . neferpitou loses their arm and then their head shortly after during their fight with gon . this is also where gon loses an arm . there is also a character called neon and she enjoys collecting body parts ! sometimes the body parts are shown, but its nothing terribly graphic . she is in the third season .

guy is hanged in a one off scene in season three. Not especially graphic, the actual hanging is off camera, but you can see his legs from the knee down jerking around as he tries to breathe for the last time.

There is a good deal of on screen torture, often of a child. This includes beating and electrocution among other things.

During the Hunter Exam arc, specifically Gon’s fight with Hanzo, Hanzo breaks Gon’s arm. The actual act is not seen, but everything leading up to it is and you can hear a crack followed by Gon’s scream of pain. Bones are implied to have been broken due to the amount of damage they sustain throughout the show.

I accidentally clicked on no and don't know how to change it. I don't remember this specific point, but since I'm the only vote I'd rather comment so people aren't mislead.

During the chimera ant arc, multiple children are killed and eaten by the ants off screen. However you do see the bloody clothes/remains of two of them.

Several characters have the ability to remotely posess/control characters. It is almost exclusively used against minor/irrelevant characters.

On of the main antagonists, Illumi, has an ability based off needles. He uses them repeatedly on other characters to torture and kill them. He also uses his needles on one of the main characters, who is a child.

No, but a mostly unseen character's offscreen terminal illness is a plotpoint.

It is sometimes referred to by a character it was used on in the past, but is never actually shown.

Yes, there are at least 2 after major characters are incapacited and nearly killed as a result combat, including children. Surgery is not shown. Medical expenses are breifly mentioned both times as explicitly non-issues for those involved.

One of the main characters has multiple anxiety attacks as a result of mind control and conflicting ideals.

There are repeated cases of self harm by many characters, usually to further a goal and not necessarily as an act of self-hatred. 3 of the 4 main characters use self harm as a means to an end. Gon in particular regularly puts himself in unnecessary danger, and then finally, in one of the later episodes of the series, commits an extreme act of intentional self harm that ends rather badly for him.

At times, when the camera wants to show a lot of movements during fights. Though usually everything is shown in dramatic slow motion in the anime when complicated movements happen.

At some times there is a narrator but the fourth wall is never broken by said narrator or any of the characters.

The main protagonist is shown as a baby in one scene. Later in the show there is a giant ant queen who is pregnant, but when she gives birth it doesn’t really look like a baby at all.

No, but there is an instance of a characters' english-written alias matching part of the the N-slur in English. In one instance honourifics/grammar made it sound like the N-slur to me.

Upsetting death of a black man in the third season. He doesn't die first but... the show builds up how he's this dog dad with a girlfriend and a life ahead of him... it's rough man... Could be triggering for some poc who have experienced police brutality due to the fact he's pulled over while driving.

Several minor characters are meantioned to have been maliciously made pyschically disabled in tournament fights whilst becoming stronger.

a scene with a main character during the trick tower portions does include a couple things like this. he is enforced to touch a women to find out if shes “actually a girl” as a test, and also this same character suggests (in his head) putting kurapika in this position as well to counteract the same test, insinuating that he looks feminine.

I do not understand the other comment. The presence of stereotypical gay characteristics does not mean the show in insulting it. Also just because a character is flamboyant, does not mean he is gay. Gays can be very masculine, femininine or somewhere in between. That is also true for straight types also. Being feminine does not automatically make someone not straight, and it is rude to call them gay as an insult, because they aren’t and being gay isn’t a bad thing.

In this fantasy world, there appears to be minimal religion and no real-life religion. I have not noticed any antisemtic tropes.

Alluka- heavily implied to a transgender girl- is misgendered frequently by one of her brothers, Illumi. Killua is the only person in her family to respect her identity.

There are two mass gang killings via a small number of gunmen, one of which is 100+ people. Gun violence is attempted at other points, but is largely ineffective and typically not presented as a threat.

There is a fantasy equivalent of a nuclear bomb, and several characters die of the fantasy equivalent of radiation poisoning, two of them on screen.
