This page includes descriptions of gore and example images hidden under a spoiler tag.



Gore


This refers to any sort of violence or physical trauma to the body.



Blood:


Any sort of blood within an image needs to be masked with the Moderate Gore filter. This includes fresh or dried blood. Bruises also use this filter.

Cuts & Open Wounds:


Any fresh cuts within a character, usually paired with blood. This requires at least a Moderate Gore filter. More serious wounds may be Extreme. Old scars, however are fine. (This excludes self-harm scars, which need an Other filter for sensitive material).

"Fake" Gore:


This includes candy, flower, sparkle, robotic, and any sort of non-realistic blood and needs to be filtered. This can need a Moderate or Extreme filter depending on the intensity of the representation to real gore/organs.

Flayed/Missing Skin:


This includes visible muscles/tissue and flaking skin. If there is no detail beneath the missing skin (Just a color), this uses the Moderate filter. Tissue and muscle detail needs an Extreme filter.

Spilling Guts:


Any sort of organs or innards outside of the body. This needs an Extreme Gore filter.

Eye or Nail Trauma:


Black eyes use a Moderate filter. Anything else that falls under this filter, such as gouged/injured eyes or gorey ripped nails use an Extreme gore filter.

Missing Limbs:


Any sort of missing/floating limb that shows blood and bone. Heavily detailed instances require an Extreme filter. If no blood is showing and the limb ends in just a stub or white indicator, this does not need to be filtered.
