← E621 WikiBlacklistBlacklisting Suggestions

For new users to e621, here is a compiled list of some blacklisting 'suggestions'. This list is provided so that it can be easier for people to find and blacklist images that they may find unpleasant or distasteful. For tips on how to blacklist, read this.

Medical Conditions
  • epilepsy_warning - This tag covers posts that can cause certain people to have seizures.
  • sound_warning - This tag covers posts that have an obnoxiously loud noise at any point. While not technically a medical condition, this might affect hearing in some cases.
  • score:<# - Hide all posts with a score less than #, such as 50, 20, 10, 0, -10, and so on. Score reflects the whims of e621 users, which may not align with your preferences or tolerances.

These tags are related to the idea of ageplay. Generally, one or more of the characters in the image has the appearance of youth (though they may be "older" mentally, regressed by magic, etc.).

  • young - All characters who are perceived to be under the age of 18. This includes babies, toddlers, children and adolescents.
    • loli - A female character that appears to be underage. However, this tag is only used on questionable and explicit artwork.
    • shota - A male character that appears to be underage. However, this tag is only used on questionable and explicit artwork.

There are many kinks and fetishes out there, and chances are that there are some you absolutely will not want to see. This list is not all inclusive, but highlights some of the more... objectionable fetishes that you may wish to not see.

Pain and suffering
  • abuse - General cruelty and mistreatment of other living beings. Can be physical, mental, sexual or non-sexual.
  • crush - Significant compressing force acting on a character or object.
  • death - Contains a character dying.
  • gore - Contains a scene that involves some grotesque imagery related to blood, gore, disembowelment, dismemberment, guts, mutilation...

  • sadism - Deriving pleasure from inflicting pain, suffering, or humiliation on another character.
  • torture - Deliberate, agonizing torture of some nature.
  • vore - A character consuming another. Usually, but not always, by mouth.
    • fatal_vore - Any vore which results in the death of the consumed character.

        • cooking_with_furs - A subset of the above that involves the eaten character being cooked or prepared in a culinary manner.
Bodily waste and byproducts

Objectionable sex
  • bestiality - Sexual interaction with a feral animal.
  • necrophilia - Sexual interaction with a corpse
  • rape - Forcing another character to have sex against their will.
    • imminent_rape, after_rape - As rape may only be tagged when the act itself is occurring, blacklisting it will still allow posts where the rape has already happened, or is clearly about to happen. These tags can be blacklisted in addition to cover these cases.

  • male/male - Two or more male characters, engaged in a sexual act with each other.
