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.

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

In episode 81 two horses are explicitly impaled and implied to be set aside for later eating.

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

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.

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

People lose their limbs all the time. If amputation and loss of limbs bother you, don't watch

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

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

Kurapika's entire clan was murdered and had their eyes harvested for profit.

Yes, as an injury in battle rather than as torture.

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.

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.

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.

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

A massive non-human creature vomits trapped humans in early episodes (think jonah and the whale or pinocchio).

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.

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.

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.

The Chimera ant queen is constantly hungry for the first few episodes she is in and nothing can fill her up for a while this might be rough for some folks

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

He didn’t die, but a main character tries to kill himself by standing in front of a train.

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.

Not in the actual show as far as I can remember, but the ending theme has a lot of flashing colors

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.

Somewhat. The Queen ant gives birth but is almost immediately killed afterwards.

Some scenes in hxh could definitely be triggering for SA survivors, especially childhood SA survivors. None of the child characters are explicitly sexualized to my knowledge, but a lot of the situations they are put in are not mindful of the fact that they are children. They are often in violent situations, some get tortured by villains who claim to be "excited" by it, and often have to interact with adults who secretly wish them harm. There are also certain adults who the audience is expected to trust, despite the fact that they endanger some child characters or encourage them to participate in violence. I don't mean to sound like an overly concerned pta mom, or anything, but watch out for that stuff, keep yourself safe.

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.

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.

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.

One character’s name is an homophobic slur (Shaiapouf’s nickname) and the character himself could be interpreted as a homophobic stereotype as he is portrayed as flamboyant, emotional/dramatic and feminine. He is also portrayed as overprotective of the chimera ant king and jealous of his love interest, attempting to get rid of her multiple times.

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

The longest arc ends pretty sadly, but the short final arc somewhat rescues it.

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.

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.

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 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.
