The pug is seen on the front line during a battle but appears again at the end, at least two years later, absolutely fine.

Navigators constantly mainline 'Spice' to acheive psychic abilities. This 'spice' also gets normal people good and wasted so it's taken recreationally.
Mentats drink a potion called "sapho juice" that accelerates their minds, allowing them to act as human supercomputers.

The Bene Gesserit test of Self-Control involves placing the hand in a nerve-stimulation chamber that makes it feel as if it's being burnt off, and expecting the initiate to keep it there for a whole minute. While it shows a video of such a thing happening, it only causes intense pain.

Harkonnen embodies homophobic tropes including the "predatory/pedophile gay" trope and is based on demonizations of HIV/AIDS victims during the 1980s, with prominent sores on his face and open lust for young men/teenage boys, especially his nephew. He also falls into fatphobic and ableist tropes. Orientalism and white savior narrative; white Paul is worshiped by a desert-dwelling Muslim tribe that's portrayed as "backwards." Whitewashing.
