No DOG dies, a cat does, and there is a different space for that on this list.

Before the rats explode, they are seen and heard in extreme pain and writhing around.

near the end of s1ep5 there's a dying deer crying out it seems it was hit by a car and left to agonize, they were gonna shoot it to put the poor thing out of its misery but something quickly snatches it away, it's obviously computerized but still realist and painful to watch. Highkey upset that no one mentioned this before and that I had to see it myself

No horses are seen, as far as I know. There is a deer that is seen injured, however, and it is grabbed by a creature. We later see the creature eating something, which is presumably the deer.

S3E6: a brief memory around minute 49. A husband is shown yelling at his wife accusing her of cheating. The wife throws plates, and a child tries to intervene. The husband is verbally abusive toward the wife, pushes the child out of the way, and punches his wife in the face. These same memories are shown quickly in the middle of S3E8.

Hopper is shown abusing alcohol and has a history of abusing the drug Tuinal (depicted in previous seasons but not this one).

There's an allusion to Hopper's former drug addiction. S3E6 involves two characters being injected with drugs while captured. They end up vomiting in a bathroom but are ultimately fine.

imo the monster in season 3 (the mind flayer) is extremely gorey. it’s made up of the insides of rats and humans (which are both shown dying VERY graphically). it’s by far the most gorey season and it made me feel uneasy at a lot of parts.

Steve is beaten and sustains some facial injuries. He develops a nasty black eye, and his eyeballs end up pretty bloodshot. His eyes are never stabbed, etc.

Eleven breaks a kids arm in season one, because he was bullying Mike and Dustin. It is not that graphic, he just screams Ah! She broke my arm! Let's get out of here!"

in season one, mike nearly falls to his death, but is saved by eleven. i feel this should still be mentioned, since it's a very scary, suspenseful scene.

A character named Bob who's introduced in the second season dies in episode 8 of the same season. He was dating Joyce, so he acted as a pseudo-father for Will and Jonathon. The death is graphically shown on screen.

The Hawkins Police Department are somewhat prominent, although the only notable character among them is Hopper who while a “good guy” is more of a grizzled anti-hero type. Not sure how to answer this one though since it’s a work that doesn’t really have strong opinions on police one way or the other.

There isn’t specific body dysmorphia but the character eleven talks about not being pretty and wishing that she looked more like a girl. She goes through a transformation scene where she puts on a dress and wig.

billy's dad calls him a f*ggot. there are also racist implications in his actions; he tries to keep max away from lucas, and no reason is given other than the implication that it's because he's dark-skinned. (props to the brothers for making a realistic central indiana from the 80's, i guess.) not to mention that in the very first episode, the bullies make fun of lucas's race by calling him midnight.

The f slur is used twice- once in S1E1 when a character is quoting someone else, and once in S2 when a boy's father is berating him.

There isn't antisemitism, but a character who is experimented on has a shaved head and a tattoo of a number on her arm, which are very likely allusions to Josef Mengele's experiments during the Holocaust.

The only major deaths in the series so far have been white characters, as far as I know - Benny (the guy who owns the diner that took Eleven in) is the first known death.

While no one is outright sexually assaulted, there is a scene near the end of episode 2 which greatly resembles sexual assault, using common stock phrases used in sexual assault scenes. People who are triggered by this may be just as bothered by this imagery

First episode, Billy crashes his car while on his way to the motel. I believe seventh episode Eleven throws a car towards Russians about to attack the gang. Finally, the scoops troop slams into Billy’s car while he’s about to run into Nancy and the rest in the car.
