During Mei’s nightmare sequence early in the movie, an image of a dead bird and a dead worm are pictures for a second.

There are army horses depicted in a flashback, but they are not shown being killed.

The character isnt necessarily stalked, but her mother spied on her when she was at school.

it can be interpreted as such?? mei's mother is overcontrolling and (according to wikipedia, i never finished the movie) there is violence between her and her mother when they are both in the 'panda state'. while not inherently abusive it is a bad relationship between mother and daughter which greatly upset me (due to personal experience) to the point of being unable to finish. mei displays behavior similar to that of someone with abusive parents- sneaking around and being overly obedient, specifically. her mother doesnt listen to her very much, and expresses distaste whenever mei brings up her interest in 4town or her friends. their relationship apparently is shown to improve around the end of the movie, but for the most part is relatively hostile and controlling.

there are upfront lies and betrayal but as a survivor I didn't notice any gaslighting. someone could totally disagree and explain tho, in that case I might delete this comment.

A child fights her mother, but it is not similar at all to typical cases of domestic abuse. They fight in a grand final-boss type of battle.

There is no addiction, but a character does yell about “needing her fix” and the phrasing in the scene may be uncomfortable to those who struggle with addiction.

Drugs are very briefly mentioned towards the beginning when the main character’s mother yells at a gas station employee for a misunderstanding, but no one actually takes drugs in the movie.

The only cutting in the movie is done with a knife on vegetables for cooking.

There are several times that the main character falls, but there is no death in this movie. The character doesn’t get hurt in any significant way either.

We can assume that some toys were destroyed when Mei turns red the first time (not specifically on screen), but her dad saves her favorite from harm.

Mei's mom passes out due to a blow to the head, but Mei's mom survives.

To be possessed, one being would have to be taken over by another against their will. While it may seem that the panda possessed Mei, we learn quickly that the panda is part of Mei. Therefore there is no possession in this movie.

There are spirits; the family is mystically connected to red pandas and there are many red panda spirits, and one of their ancestor’s spirit is shown too. Nothing scary.

The main character is briefly shown hiding in the shower behind a curtain to conceal her red panda form from her mother, but she is not actually taking a shower.

At the sequence around 16 minutes into the movie, a mermaid turns toward the screen with a very frightening expression. It made me jump a bit.

In the Daisy Mart scene, Tyler blows a raspberry up close into the camera.

At one point one Mei Lee throws herself against the wall, ceiling, tugs her hair, etc to try and get herself to stop being a panda.

I mean it does revolve around child literally turning into a red panda and there is turmoil at first over what she looks like. (Referring to herself as a monster). Though obviously this wouldn’t be the traditional sense of dysphoria. Also, Mei does come to accept and actively love this part of herself.

I wouldn't say that the mother is mentally ill or not herself, her panda form and actions are due to being greatly hurt and angry, she does not have any mental illness apart from the trauma running in her family.

Many, many times. The protagonist has a lot of anxiety due to her over-controlling mother, and has a lot of anxiety (attacks) towards the beginning, and it continues more on after she gets her red panda form, and especially because she can’t contain it. A lot of the time she has anxiety, she just turns into the red panda.

Not explicitly, however the mother slaps her husband when he reaches for the donuts. "No sugar" she says. Given how hostile and controlling the mother is, I have no doubt she would also enforce other diet rules on mei mei. May be triggering to those in recovery from ED When the Aunties come, they comment on mei meis weight. Tldr; no ED, but diet culture yes

Mei's Mother is implied to be VERY traumatized by her Panda.

There's a warning for Disney+ for flashing lights/images, and there are a few scenes involving them, such as flashing lights during a concert and some flashy moments when the main character turns into a red panda.

When the Aunties come, they comment on Mei Mei's weight, but more in an observational, non judgemental way. It's funny because the aunties disagree. You can't tell anything about mei mei's weight from this interaction.

The movie touches on the developing sexuality in teenagers, with Mei drawing suggestive drawings of an older guy and fantasizing about members of a boy band, but there's nothing overtly sexual I think.

There is no actual sexual assault in this movie, albeit the mother misinterpreted Mei’s drawings that were an outcome of her intrusive thoughts— and accuses an innocent man of touching her daughter.

Three cars are involved in an accident right at the 25 minute mark. It happens quickly and no one is injured.

Much to the chagrin of a certain cartoon reviewer, no. Not even mentioned.
