In episode 1 they introduce the cat, then off it at the very last scene. TLDR of the last scene, Kid that started the street fight snitches on Vi and the gang. Head bad guy says plans have moved up and has Henchman 1 show him a potion that gives creatures super strength and demonizes them. Then they chuck the cat in with a rat that got fed the potion. Cat dies. If you're sensitive, I'd just read this summary and then skip the entire last scene.

many adult antagonists in the show are willing to physically fight and even kill young children. it’s also mentioned that a young boy was left overnight with a foot stuck in a gutter after he fled police- they saw it and decided to leave him there with no attempt to help. children are manipulated. the character mentioned in the other comment is not intentionally abandoned.

purple vials called the shimmer = fantasy steroids, make people hulk out and over time warps them physically (like huck, shown episode 6) or gives them brain damage (like is shown with decker in episode 6). also addictive.

a young woman is approached by a stranger who gets uncomfortably close but that’s all, she ends up fine. wrt the second comment- i do believe the guy is a young adult and he never expresses discomfort but the age gap may still make some upset.

there is no actual cannibalism but (spoilers) there is a scene in episode 9 where jinx leads vi to believe that she killed caitlyn and turned her into a dinner dish but it is quickly revealed that caitlyn is alive and unharmed (somewhat)

someone’s arm is blown off, no blood just a silhouette; many times throughout the show people drink or inject a purple liquid called shimmer which gives them very abnormal functions; surgery is performed on someone and their veins are very pronounced while this happens

A girl very briefly tortures her father figure in episode 7. Description of the scene, spoilers ahead: He needs to take a medication applied via syringe that she is shown to have helped him with before. Believing he has lied to her, she pokes him twice in the face with it, visibly causing pain. The scene only lasts a minute and the torture aspect is relatively mild, but it could still upset some viewers.

some blood and injuries, but it's usually mild to moderate. no exposed organs, spurting blood, etc

I assume the above comment refers to Jinx and her crop top. Thankfully, Jinx's character is portrayed as tragic rather than seductive in any way; it seems she just happened to choose clothing without a midriff.

At the very beginning of episode 1 two children see their biological parents die. While the deaths are not explicitly shown, we do see a body. SPOILERS AHEAD: The same children later see their adoptive parents die as well, at the end of episode 3 and episode 9.

At the end of episode 3 a character kidnaps a young girl but suggests it is to protect her. At the end of episode 6 two main characters are knocked unconscious during a fight and kidnapped by their assailants. About halfway through episode 9 a main character wakes up to find that she and two other characters have been kidnapped and tied to chairs.

sort of. a child talks about missing her favorite toy, which was taken and thrown within sight but unable to be retrieved. another child makes explosive weapons resembling toys, and at one point gets frustrated/upset and damages one.

the enforcers have been shown as aggressive and cruel, or often more passively enabling brutality and inequality. some attempt to change the system from the inside, but are met with intense resistance including violence from their superiors.

no clear diagnoses, but multiple characters are deeply affected by trauma, and may be seen as having ptsd/c-ptsd

a character who struggles with likely ptsd and psychosis traits is violent sometimes. she is portrayed sympathetically. + honestly i’d say she isn’t the only character with mental health issues in the show. many of the characters are shown in fights at some point.

It’s difficult to unravel Powder/Jinx’s psychology, there are solid arguments to be made for a range of neurological conditions, some innate (like autism) and some acquired from trauma. Suffice it to say, she is almost definitely neurodivergent and she is, at times, shamed and mistreated for traits and/or behaviors that are often associated with autism.

mildly early on- a child having a breakdown hits her own face a few times and a character under the influence of a dangerous substance crushes a glass vial in his bare hands, drawing blood quite possibly accidentally. see other comments for other more intense instances.

nobody outright says it, but it may be relevant to know that in episodes 2 and 9 two characters stand on high ledges with suicidal intent. however, before they can jump, both characters are interrupted and neither are hurt.

“cr-pple” is used in self reference by a physically disabled character, and he alludes to facing prejudice.

id just like to add to the comment above: during the situations where jinx is upset by their relationship, it is quite obvious that shes upset because she is an enforcer / feels as if shes being replaced. it is thankfully not misleading

a character with a physical disability describes himself as a “cr-pple”; it may be seen as a reclaimed use of the term

There is a sex scene in episode 5, relatively discreet. No frontal nudity shown, all that is clearly revealed is a man's bare back, but sexual activity is clearly displayed. No view below torso, and scene is interrupted repeatedly as the show switches between two story segments in bursts. Doesn't last very long and as of yet it isn't referenced more than once.

Not explicitly, but a lot of YouTube reactors get creepy vibes from the relationship between an older man and his quasi adopted daughter, so it could ping a sensitive viewer as incestuous.

One of the prominent characters has a physical disability and an unnamed chronic illness. This is discussed fairly frequently in relation to his character.
