In the episode "skeletons in the closet" S1E11, in a flashback, Noatok and Tarlok bloodbend animals in a way that looks and I'd described as being very painful.

Most arthropod-like creatures are spirits, including dragonfly bunny spirits.

Dragons were almost completely extinct in the original series, but judging by Zuko having a dragon it seems like the dragon population is rising again!

Pretty much all of the seasons include heavy gaslighting. Korra's character arc involves a lot of struggles with choosing sides and most of the villains in the show are clever manipulators.

There are a few parent characters who are clearly abusive to their children, such as in season 1 (without too much spoilery details) a man forces his kids to learn bloodbending in a flashback, being very harsh on one of them for not being very good and yelling when he doesn’t want to bloodbend animals.

Pretty much 99.9% of the time someone is captured they are restrained in some way. Sometimes the police will wrap metal cords around the person, or it can be as severe as tightly imprisoning Korra in a straightjacket type thing where she can’t bend

A woman has her head exploded. It's not shown on screen but the explosion is heard and it's very clear what happened. (Book 3 Episode 13)

A minor character is killed by having the air bent out of their lungs in season 3. The scene is drawn out and horrific and keeps getting flashed back to. Korra is almost killed this way too and has PTSD flashbacks to that moment in season 4.

Korra is knocked unconscious consistently throughout the show along with many other characters.

A father dies, but he was an antagonist and his daughters were distraught, but content with his death. Another father dies after a short redemption arc where his daughter reconnects with him after his crimes. He sacrifices himself and his daughter is very distraught. Also a few off-screen deaths that all happened before the events of the show.

The past Avatars can interact with Korra, but they're more like friendly spirits rather than ghosts. And in Book 4, Korra hallucinates and sees herself (what she looked like at the climax of Book 3) in the Avatar state.

Not in a traditional sense, but there are moments when another exerts their will onto another. Similar to what happens in a episode of Avatar the Last Airbender.

Five-year-old Meelo is known to be pretty vulgar in the first season with farting, as five-year-olds are.

Not technically gore, but the sound effects used for blood-bending can be disturbing.

Two major protagonists (Lin Beifong and Mako) are members of the police and consistently portrayed as heroic. The metalbending police force is consistently portrayed in a positive light. As police chief, Toph Beifong covers up her daughter Suyin's involvement in gangs. Despite the fact that Suyin inflicts a permanent scar on Lin for trying to stop a robbery, Lin is victim blamed in the narrative by "not getting over it" (worth noting that neither Toph nor Suyin even offer an apology for this act of blatant corruption)

A character receives acupuncture. The metal poison mentioned by the other comment is absorbed through pores in the victim’s skin, not via needle

Book Four deals with a character's PTSD and overcoming a physically and emotionally traumatic event. The character painfully flashes back to that event on multiple occasions.

The scene where she is trapped in a metal box is one of the claustrophobic scenes that has triggered me the most. She is panicking and try to get out.

S1 isn't too bad, s2 has a decent amount of flashing lights. From what I remember there isn't nearly as much in seasons 3 and 4

S2 E1 8:25 to 8:43. Bolin refers to Eska and Desna as ladies because both have long hair and robes, although Desna is male. The “joke” of his appearance being an extension of his weirdness was a lot less distasteful in 2013 than it is today :/

Zaheer condemns Aiwei, an LGBTQ person, to the Fog of Lost Souls. Since souls can spend eternity there and a physical body dies if a spirit is separated for too long, he is as good as dead. However, Aiwei's LGBTQ status was confirmed by the creators offscreen but not actually mentioned in the show. Also, Unavaatu destroys all past Avatar lives, which includes Kyoshi, a bisexual woman. It's worth noting that neither of these characters were targeted for their sexuality, and this show is famous for ending with a happy, and very much alive, canon queer ship.

Self-mockery by Iroh in S2 E10. In S2 E11, there is also a depiction of a fat character being gluttonous while eating a piece of cake.

Most of the time when male characters cry, their friends comfort them, like after experiencing a “break up” from Korra in season one Bolin cries a lot, and Mako tries to help him feel better, but Bolin is mad at him so Mako ends up having to carry Bolin back to their home.
