No cats die or are hurt, however, one character is terrified of cats and says various superstitous and negative things about them throughout.

A man says Blackbeard made him put his dog down upon joining his ship. Just a story, nothing shown, but the man cries after remembering.

During the treasure hunt in S1E7, Stede finds a bug and happily shows it off on his hand to the others.

There is a dog-fight style joke in which the pirates stage a fight between a crab and a small turtle with a knife tied to it. It's not graphic and it occurs in S1E8 between 14:35-15:06.

There's the butchering of a dead goose in episode one. The goose is in shadow and the butcher just beheads it with a cleaver, with a spray of dramatic fake blood. And that's all you see really. It's framed as traumatic for the main character who is made to watch it, and a reason he's 'squeamish' about blood and violence in the episode's present.

In episode 7 at 11m30s a snake falls from a tree onto a character and the character kills it. It's not graphic and the snake doesn't look real, but he does fight it a lot. At 12m5s, the characters eat the defeated snake over a fire.

Stede’s father is verbally abusive to him as a kid. Stede was also physically and mentally bullied as a child by other kids. There is implied abuse by Blackbeard’s father. The character Jim is also raised to avenge their family, implying that their childhood is filled mostly with the training involved to do so. Jim also witnessed their family’s death, but has no memory of it most likely due to trauma.

Characters are frequently restrained in the context of being captured/held hostage. Notably in episodes 1-3, there are Englishmen who get tied up with rope and gagged with cloth by the crew. In episodes 8-9, we see the crew being taken prisoner by the English and most of them get their hands tied with rope.

There’s definitely explicit and excessive gore throughout the series. However, it’s worth noting that the gore is purposefully over the top and (mostly) pretty fake looking.

The title card in episode 5 is carved into a dead mans chest. It is not intensely gory, but it is realistic and was triggering for me as an image of cuts.

episode 6 there is an attempted amputation of an infected finger, but the character realizes whats about to happen and escapes and runs off. the same character cuts their own finger off later in the episode pretty graphically with a very large pair of scissors, spurting blood from it.

In a different, later episode (dont remember which one exactly) , a character mentions that their fingernails are falling off due to scurvy, but this is not really shown graphically.

In episode 3, a character is hanged after being stabbed and captured and is shown to be struggling from the rope for most of the scene. The character survives the hanging but has visible rope burns on their neck the following episode

A character is stabbed through the eye with a sword and dies, and then a 'ghost' of them is present in several scenes talking and walking around with the sword still in their head. You do not see the injury happen but they are shown a lot afterwards.

in episode 3, A character is about to be hanged for piracy, but its interrupted, then the thing he is standing on is moved accidentally and he is hanged and struggling to breathe for pretty much the rest of that particular scene, but he gets the rope is cut before he dies from it. In the next episode he has a red mark on his neck around his throat/jawline from the incident. It goes away after that. In a later episode, a flashback reveals that a character killed their own abusive father via strangling him with a rope.

Characters are sometimes put into situations that could be considered torture (one character is held captive in a chest for a long period of time), but this is all treated with a comedic and light tone so it’s never portrayed as overly gruesome or intense, (said character forgives the character who trapped him in the chest almost immediately)

Not to their death, but a character falls from a height and lands on the side of the ship before falling into the sea. Injuries from this are not seen, but the rest of the crew wince at the fall

There are two English hostages in the beginning episodes, but it’s mainly played for comedy as Stede refuses to actually harm them in any way. (SPOILERS) In the season one finale, two members of the Revenge crew are forced to join Blackbeard’s crew via force and intimidation.

Several crewmembers are in a polyamorous relationship but everyone involved is aware. Edit: Two people in a loveless marriage both formed other relationships after initially parting ways. Neither is too broken up about it upon finding out and they "divorce" amicably to be with their lovers.

No children's toys are destroyed. In the final episode of season 1, a character decides to throw away a very sentimental/important item from his childhood of his own volition, because of how sentimental the item is and what it represents to him.

It's not clowns per se, but in S1, E5, there's a fancy party where people are dressed in cartoonish 18th century fancy costumes, and almost all of them have on very pale white makeup with heavily drawn on features.

No one exactly self harms but a character actively provokes another to hurt him, eventually resulting in strangling and mutilation

Not exactly, but there are a few things to note: Stede is insulted about being fat several times in episodes 1-2. Jim is a nonbinary person who disguises themself as a man, including wearing a fake nose and beard, and we see them removed (by choice in episodes 1-2 and by force in episode 3). They also continue binding their chest after they stop presenting as a man, and a couple times their chest is nearly seen by another character (by accident, episodes 2 and 10), and is seen by choice (episode 10).

No one is explicitly said to be violent because of mental illness, but most character have suffered some level of abuse + lived as pirate and the violence it includes and have trauma so most character can be considered mentally ill and violent, and there's a general idea of everyone being brought up in this violent contexts and contributing to it

In episode one, there is a dinner scene where for about 10 seconds nothing but chewing can be heard, made me quite nauseous but its over quick.

No, but as an autistic person it is worth mentioning that the episode “The Best Revenge Is Dressing Well” may be uncomfortable to watch as a character who struggles with passive aggression is ridiculed and mocked by a party.

No, but there is a character who mocks another by calling them fat/fatty/chubby so if that might be triggering be careful in the first 2 episodes

Not explicitly stated, but seems to be likely as Blackbeard has a flashback and a panic attack upon seeing the fake Kraken in “The Art of Fuckery”.

A nonbinary character is originally passing as a man. After the reveal there is a lot of confused discussion (but overall acceptance) and while the nonbinary character is uncomfortable at times, their discomfort seems to stem more from the attention than from any offense. Afterwards, different characters use different pronouns for this character.

Nothing extremely verbally "graphic", but I would argue that Yes there is homophobic language. The main character is regularly referred to in derogative ways, like "namby pamby", "ponce", etc. He's regularly mocked, to his face or behind his back, for being generally soft.

Mildly. It is more written into the script/on the part of the writers than from other characters. A visibly disabled character is written to be very creepy, asking questions about dismembering a body (not graphic), and is then called a “freak” by another character who scares them off.

This intends to have realistic villains to the time period in the first episode, so the British do in fact engage in heavy racism. While this show is stylized, it doesn't pull punches.

FINALE SPOILERS! Lucius (a gay man) is pushed off the ship, his fate is never disclosed but there is a reasonable chance he is dead. He does not get pushed because of his sexuality and he is far from the only queer character in the show.

Stede's old school mates mock him, which he is shown to internalize a bit. Early on, he is also described as "a heavyset lady" by a British soldier. Otherwise, fat characters are treated respectfully.

Yes, both Ed and Stede are made to feel badly for showing emotions at various times. However, alternative forms of masculinity is a major theme of the show, and it's not usually framed as something the audience should laugh it.

No one is homeless during the events of the show, but it is implied that most of the pirates were driven to piracy because of desperation and poverty. There are brief and pretty vague references to this throughout the show, such as one of the characters revealing he’s skilled at pickpocketing because of a dark time in his life that he vaguely describes as “not cute”

toward the end of episode 9, a character who is threatening another with a gun accidentally trips and shoots himself in the head/eye with his gun. it’s not overly graphic, but still graphic enough to note. it also does not cut away at any point, it plays continuously.
