The specifics aren’t explained but Sonic doesn’t have parents (at least at the beginning) and is later pushed through a portal by his caretaker to save his life, and then proceeds to spend the next ten years completely fending for himself in a strange world

There's something reminiscent of gaslighting: Even though Sonic is aware that the one man who has seen him is considered crazy by the townspeople for talking about "The Blue Devil", he not only lets the situation go on, he even has fun with it, sort of teasing the man when no one else is around. In Sonic's defense, he can't reveal himself to the "non-believers", because he's afraid of the possible consequences. And fortunately, the man doesn't seem to be questioning his own sanity. But still it seems to me to be gaslighting-ish to participate in a situation in which someone's correct perception of reality leads to others considering them "crazy".

Someone accidentally electrocutes himself sticking something in his mouth for a split second (head twitches and silly vocallization), but appears fine afterward, then silently offers the same to someone else. Like a D battery on the tongue kind of joke.

One of the final scenes of the film shows Robotnik stranded on another planet after Sonic defeats him. Although he declares to himself that he's still sane, his actions show otherwise.

Fat erasure, where a round-shaped game character is played by a thin actor.
Note that "Eggman" was referenced by the egg-like (shape and color) drones he is known for having (called eggs earlier in the movie). I'm glad they found that work-around.

Sonic calls a Black woman “pretzel lady.” This is because she does yoga, not because of her skin color, but the line could sound problematic out of context.

Government figures in a private conference refer to Robotnik as a "psychological flat tire" and "crazy", though he's actually an insensitive jerk. After hearing Tom's story, his sister-in-law tells his wife he's gone crazy, she should leave him, and no one would blame her for it. Tom calls Robotnik a "wack job". Sonic calls Robotnik "psychotic".

There is only mention of "plutonium" in the form of a question that is disproven, but plenty of other types of explosions, including a mysterious electricity-filled one that had a large bubble-like shockwave, which could trigger some.

A fish drowned. (I wasn't the person who upvoted, FYI, but no air-breathing people/animal drownings occured.) Half joke. But the fish was alive, dropped, and abandoned far from water, where it most-likely died from lack of water.

Realistic guns feature in some scenes but are not fired. A tranquilliser gun is fired and hits a target. Robotnik uses drones fitted with machine guns and rocket launchers and in one scene they're used to shoot up a room in a house, but nobody is injured by them.
