Violence

There are several fight scenes which mostly involve robots fighting one another. The fight scenes feature use of chains, spikes and bladed weapons and include body blows and stabbings, as well as scenes in which robot heads and limbs are ripped off. There is a scene in which a character's eye is gouged out, although this is quite undetailed. There is also a scene in which a dog is killed, but this occurs off screen without any detail.

Injury detail

There is brief sight of blood in the aftermath of violence; robots bleed blue blood.
