A dead fish is cut at a market for food, nothing bad really and there's fish that have died in a bowl when he visits an apartment to look for his brother but nothing terrible. The series is brillant and coming from someone who's overly sensitive to animals dying most of you should be ok! I recommend

In the first episode the main character is hit in the face and his nose bled. the beater wiped blood away and licked the blood from his thumb, then intimidated him further by holding a shiv to the inside of his nostril. but does not cut him.

Someone is near-death and is put into an incinerator. There is no screaming, or a sign of pain or struggle.

Many of the "players" that die were parents and at the end Gi-Hoon's mother dies from diabetes. Sae-Byeok mentions that her dad died while scaping North Korea.

No but if you don’t want upsetting imagery around children’s toys/games this is NOT the show for you. Twisted versions of various games and toys throughout.

Although they aren’t quite jump scares, there are several instances where a character is suddenly shot which can be alarming. The sound and visual cut to someone dying is often very abrupt with no warning.

After the workers come back to the room with the players (after the alarms are sounded), they demand the old man to get up, and they pull his blanket off of him. It's revealed that he's wet himself.

eating disorders arent mentioned or shown, but the characters frequently state disappointment with the amount they're eating, if underfeeding is triggering to anybody.

I highly doubt that none of the characters have no mental illnesses or disorders, but none are mentioned or implied to be the reason why they're violent.

An old man begins to lose his short term memory, and is completely unable to remember things that have just been said. When playing a game against another character, he asks for things to be repeated. This other character lies about how the game is going in order to win. There are several times where a character is tricked/betrayed by someone they trust.

Many moments have shakey camera movement to induce stress in the viewer that the characters are feeling. But it’s not too extreme.

there is a conversation in episode 2 about how a pregnant woman almost didn't make it to hospital and almost lost her baby because of it, if that counts

S1E4: Sex scene in a restroom. S1E7: Lot's of naked people, but with full body painting, so there's not much to see. In the same episode there's also a naked man to see from behind.

No, but the "depraved homosexual" trope is depicted in s01e07. (An older man with a decadent lifestyle tries to sexually assault a younger adult man and fails. )

A very old man with a brain tumor and health problems gets picked on, and is rarely picked for teams in the games. But some characters make sure he isn’t left out.

We don’t actually know if a character is LGBTQ+ or not, but there are a couple of characters that many people who are LGBTQ+ deem to possibly not be straight, and they die.
