It’s a 15 rated show with many references to drugs and sex. Obviously it’s going to have triggers involving death?

A child is shown to have extremely negligent parents. In season 3 episode 10 an otherwise negligent father physically harms his son—it’s mostly accidental but may be upsetting to some viewers.

A plot line throughout the seasons is that one of the main protagonists was in the military and went through extremely harsh private training, including borderline verbal abuse, with his officer at war, who (SPOILERS!) he later fights and kills. We see this happen through flashbacks. Later this character opens a karate studio and teaches his students in a similar harsh way, using verbal and some physical abuse as tactics.

Cigars are constantly smoked by a recurring character in S2, and if you count alcohol as a drug, then theres constant drinking in most seasons.

In the finale of Season 5, one of Silvers villains loses a pinky. This happens when Johnny is fighting in the sword room. There is blood spurting and a little bone, but it is relatively short and cartoonish.

Not quite a shower scene, but Samantha and Robby train in a Koi Pond in which they both fall a couple of times. Its not really sexual or anything like that, but they are shown to have romantic feelings for eachother down the line.

In season 4 right when they begin practicing at Miyagi-Do, a character says he's going to b*** and he did. It is shown. I don't have the time stamp. Just listen for the queue and have someone skip for you

Season 5 comments below are accurate. Only one I see missing is Johnny says he thinks he's going to be sick (he might use anteiggwring word i don't remember, as an emetophobe the word didn't trigger me,, just the unknown of if he was actually going to be sick) in episode 3 when Carmen and him are at the drug store. Nothing happens but just a warning. I love this site! So helpful!
