In season 2 episode 4 "existential crisis" Eleanor's childhood dog dies by suffocating to death in a hot car. It is not shown on camera but it is explained in excruciating detail.

A snail gets crushed. It isn’t shown but the sounds and the person’s reaction are both pretty upsetting

There’s a scene where a dog gets super unhealthy and fat because Eleanor neglects it while housesitting. She leaves the dog alone with way too much food so she can go to a Rihanna concert and as a result the dog gets very large and unhealthy

There’s a sort of demented looking pony creature accidentally created when a character’s sketch comes to life in the final season; Janet has to put it to sleep. This does not happen on camera.

No, although in season 2 (spoilers) there is discussion between two of the characters of a torture plot in which one character would accidentally kill another character's cat. It's not in graphic detail and is very quick.

They sometimes mention spiders (as torture methods at the bad place) but don't show them.

There is also frequent mention/description of 'traditional torture' that takes place at the bad place. But not shown on screen.

Some people are hit by a trolley car (more than once), and although we see them only before they're hit, considering the amount of blood and "matter" that's splattered all over the driver every time he hits them, I'm sure their heads are squashed by the impact.

There’s a mention of “eye corkscrews” as a torture method, but it isn’t shown and I think it’s only mentioned once

There's a clown corner" in Eleanor's home in The Good Place which features paintings of clowns, as well as a scene in season 2 in which a clown is briefly shown in the middle of a montage.

Janet appears out of nowhere which frequently causes some characters to be 'jump-scared', but I think there are no jumpscares directed atthe audience.

But there is a point when several characters look like another character, so it kind of looks like they're inhabiting her body.

I am normally very triggered by vomiting, but the surreal “vomiting” (such as pennies) on this show is watchable for me.

S2E5: In The Trolley Problem episode, Michael then takes Elenor and Chidi to a hospital and does another morality test where he has to talk to families of sick patients. This is brief and I do not remember any medical equipment being shown up close.

Jason gets trapped inside a safe and I believe we see a few scenes inside this safe. This is how he dies.

Season 2 episode 6, Janet malfunctions and asks Michael to kill her. She doesn't kill herself but does use suicidal language. Season 4 episode 5, Derek reboots himself and uses suicidal language

Not in the traditional sense no, but a being creates another being as a rebound to get over someone else, so they're romantically involved with someone they created, then later in the series the creator being makes comments like "I guess he's my son and my ex, he's my son-ex-boyfriend" and the created being makes comments calling the one who created him his "mommy girlfriend" and other comments about her being both his mom and girlfriend. Neither of them are human or genetically related in the traditional sense but the comments and jokes they make could potentially be uncomfortable to a survivor of incest.

Janet, who is a genderless being, is frequently referred to as a girl, and every time corrects the other person by saying "Not a girl", to the point where it is a running joke in the show.

The characters are dead to begin with. The main character, Eleanor is heavily coded as bisexual, as well as a few background LGBT characters. None of the deaths spoken about are hate crimes or traumatic as LGBT deaths usually are. Technically, LGBT people die, but not outside of the main plot of the show.

There is a scene in season 1 where portions of the Nixon Tapes are played, including antisemitic content. The demons of the Bad Place who are acting as demons are also consistently sexist and misogynistic, which may bother some people to varying degrees.

Since this is a show about the afterlife, all of the characters have died. However, we have no way of knowing what order they died in, as it is never specified. Also, given that many events can, unbeknownst to those on Earth, have happened before events that happened before them (due to Jeremy Bearimy), what does "first" mean, anyway?

"Bad Janet" (the version of Janet that they have in The Bad Place) uses the word "fat" disparagingly a whole lot.

People don't really take Chidi's anxiety seriously/just see it as a problem and frequently make him make decisions that they themselves could easily make even though they know he struggles with that. On several occasions characters try to "cure" him that way

The people from the bad place do a "Karaoke" thing with the Nixon tapes and it plays an antisemitic line.

It depends of your feelings Spoilert: all the character choose to die again but without heaven or hell because they have done everything they want in heaven so they show it like a good think but it can be trigger for people who didn't want the character to die

During Season 2: Episode 5, The Trolley Problem", dozens of people are hit by a trolley throughout several crashes. This often is gorey and includes flying body parts. (Obviously, trolleys aren't cars, but this is similar enough that I believe it falls in the same category.)

It's in the context of a first person shooter being played by Jianyu, but it could still be triggering for people with gun violence trauma (it was for me).

S2E5: Michael takes Chidi through a simulation of the trolley problem. This trolley crashes into people and there is use of blood.
