||Numerous instances of both male and female nudity, though no genitalia is seen in the film. In the uncensored version, several demons are seen with cartoonish male genitals for brief amounts of time.
At the beginning Griffith is incarcerated in a cell without any clothes save for his helmet. His genitals are obscured but we can see his pubic hair briefly.
A sex scene between a man and a woman: the man fondles her breasts and kisses her nipples. We see him thrusting from a side view. In the uncensored version, the man can be seen doing some additional things to the woman's vagina, which she expresses to enjoy by moaning.
In a later scene the man is walking around naked (we see his buttocks). Viewers can find amusingly convenient censoring of his genitalia and phallus symbology in the huge sword he carries during said scene.
At the start of the Eclipse a gigantic, naked female demon rises from the ground. She fondles her breasts and has a seductive tone of voice and expression. In a few shots, her vulva (censored with pubic hair) can be seen very briefly.
Several demons are seen naked, falling from the sky. Several of the demons have male genitals but are in cartoonish form (it's not detailed but have the generic appearance).
In the uncensored version, a man sees a naked woman, her breasts can be seen while pubic hair covers anything explicit. The man approaches her and places his face between her breasts. The woman turns into a demon and kills the character.
A woman is viciously raped by a humanoid demon in front of another man that clocks in at around 5 minutes, but involves some violence for almost half of it. This scene consists of some very explicit material. The demon fondles her breasts, rubs his hand between her legs (pubic hair shown) and ultimately thrusts inside her. Afterwards, his semen can be spotted on her thighs briefly.
As per the previous listed, the unrated version includes: (To better understand the difference of the edited vs uncensored version - don't read unless you want to spoil the scene listed above) The humanoid demon fondles the woman's nipples and breasts before rubbing his fingers against the woman's vagina, which causes the woman to unconsciously moan. The demon uses tenticles to spread her legs before finally inserting into her. The sound effects itself from this part are enough to make it NC-17. At one point we see the demon's black erected penis thrusting several times from the side. The demon uses it's tentacles to turn the woman around, where we are able to see him continually thrusting into the woman while fondling her bouncing breasts. There is a brief scene where we see the humanoid's erected penis inside her before it shows how he ejaculated into her. Her lover unsuccessfully tries to save her, and is then forced to watch it happen. After letting go of the woman, she lays on the ground and we see how semen flows out from her vagina and down her legs.
||Depending on which version you're watching, the gore is shown more on the uncensored version.
This is the most violent of the three movies.
Throughout the film dozens of people are killed in various ways: decapitation, cut (literally) in half, limbs torn off, dying from blood loss, shot with arrows etc. During the Eclipse scene the violence reaches a particularly high point, as soldiers get mercilessly slaughtered in nearly every way possible by demons. This film is extremely bloody, and the gore is very highly detailed as people are decapitated and eaten apart.
There is a scene where a large claw can be slowly seen entering inside of a man's eye. This may be difficult for some viewers to watch.
When the main character cuts his arm off we see the tendons, veins and bone slowly stretch and break, with blood spilling everywhere.
A man tries to stand up in a shallow pool and sees that his arm's been broken (we see the bone jutting out). Then the character attempts suicide by impaling his throat on a sharp piece of wood, but fails, and merely cuts his neck.
A man is shown in a torture room, starved and near-death. The jailer later reveals that he cut out the man's tongue and dangles it from a rope in his hand. He also cut out the tendons in his arms and legs with graphic scars seen on both.
A man is stabbed through the shoulder and has his tongue cut out with a knife. The sword then slides through his shoulder like it was butter and he falls to his death from a very high height.
A man is split in half down the middle with a sword.
The dimension of the God Hand (a group of immortal, demonic gods) is shown to be made from the bodies of the dead. The lands are literally made from thousands of corpses and bones, along with lakes of blood.
A man falls from a very high height and ends up surviving by falling into a MASSIVE pool of blood and
A man (who's already dead) is suddenly ripped to pieces in front of another man.
A man has his head bitten off by a demon.
There are more gory moments in this film than one can count, so suffice to say that the film can be considered
NC-17 level on purely the level and amount of violence alone.
||A few uses of "fuck" and "shit" (in the original Japanese film).
The English dub hardly has any swearing, aside from mild words (bastard, hell).
||People are seen drinking ale in a few scenes.
||The whole film from start to finish is very intense, and gets incredibly disturbing and even horrifying during the Eclipse sequence, as the characters are transported into the surreal, nightmarish dimension of the God Hand.
This film features countless scenes and moments that are not appropriate for children in any way to watch; brutal violence, explicit language and nudity, rape, sex, and numerous frightening moments.
During the Eclipse we see a surreal dream sequence, where a boy is horrified to find himself standing on a field littered with bloody and rotting corpses.
The deaths of most of the main cast are especially upsetting if the viewer has grown attached to them in the previous films.
Many of the demons during the Eclipse look very bizarre and unsettling. One member of the God Hand is shown with his eyes sewn shut, his lips and nose missing and massive brain exposed in a permanent, disturbing expression.
The rape scene can (and should) be especially uncomfortable to anyone watching the film.
