Blackbeard and Stede both had abusive parents. Stede's was more emotionally abusive. Blackbeard's father was physically abusive toward him and his mother.

When Izzy apologizes for years of manipulation and psychological abuse, Ed says he's the one who should be apologizing. I think it's pretty clear that he's wrong, though.

Some stalker -adjacent behavior from antagonists and minor characters.
-Chauncey hunts Stede down for revenge. He has the "full force of the English navy" granted to him by the king for that purpose.
-Izzy stalks Ed and Stede. He's in love with Ed and wants to kill Stede (in season one). He teams up with Chauncey.
-Ricky follows Stede around and they both agree that it's creepy.
-When Stede gets infamous there are people covertly drawing pictures of him without his permission.

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.

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.

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.

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)

(SPOILERS!) one of the main characters gets stabbed twice, stabbing a happen a few times but it’s not all that graphic the first time, some blood spurts but it’s not too bad, second time no blood is shown but he’s impaled there for a while, there is a scene where BlackBeard gets stabbed and you see the sword sticking out of his stomach but there isn’t really any visible blood, a characters father is shown being spabbed a few times and likely more I can’t remember at the moment.

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.

Slightly transphobic comments from characters who are confused about Jim being trans. They don't mean any harm and don't call Jim anything worse than "a woman'".

Jim seems to be mostly annoyed by this.

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”.

Most of the crew likely have some forms of PTSD and people headcannon other stuff but it isn’t explicitly said likely because of the time period it’s set in.

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

Autism wasn't a diagnosis in the 1700s, autistic viewers tend to find the main characters relatable and good examples of autistic-coded characters.

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

Yes, sees a "ghost" of a person he saw die which is a manifestation of his guilt.

A character might see tentacle murdering someone he killed or we the audience just see it because he's lying it's not clear.

A character is in "purgatory" where he sees a person he hates who turns out to be himself, he also sees his ex as a mermaid.

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, 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.

They are pirates, their language is often coarse. Blackbeard in particular swears often. He calls his performances "fuckery" and shouts "fuck!" several times when fighting a snake. Izzy also loves swearing, with "twats" probably being the most used. A villain character is called a c*nt in episode 2:8.

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.

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.

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.

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.

None of the characters have specified ages and most look to be about the same age. Lucius who looks to be around 30 flirts with a lot of characters, some of whom look a couple decades older than him. But yeah, they're all adults and all that.

Spanish Jackie says about Jim 'What about your sexy little friend over there? You going to invite him over?" and in later scenes where they are alone in a room makes multiple sexual comments and pins Jim against a pillar while they seem uncomfortable (Episode 3, 15:44-15:57)

Izzy Hands is implied to be a masochist. Very common trope in fanworks involving him.

In season 2, when threatened with torture, he says something like "You can't do anything that won't turn me on."

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.
