Maximus’ wolf dog survives the opening battle and is not seen after that. I read that originally the dog was to be killed in Commodus’ takeover, but, thankfully, that notion was dropped

Its not shown on screen but the main characters wife is sexually assaulted by soldiers before they kill her, its described to the main character later.
The antagonist also attempts to force his sister into a sexual relationship, saying he will kill her child if she refuses.

Aside from the opening battle with flaming arrows, Maximus’ wife and child are burned. The actual burning is not shown, but their burned feet are.

When Maximus goes home to find his family dead and his farm burned you see the feet of two people (they are crucified not hanged but the imagery is very suggestive of other hanging scenes). Also at the end of the movie his servant Cicero is hanged from a tree

The main character’s child is killed, and it is frequently brought up throughout the movie. All that is shown is the son being trampled by horses, and in a later scene, his burned feet. We learn that he has been burned and crucified, and the main character’s reaction is upsetting. In addition, the screams of the son as he died are described, but not heard.
