This question already has an answer here:

Consider this following spoiler block:

The quick brown fox: * Jumped over the lazy dog * And did something else.

It should have one paragraph, then a bulleted list with two items - just as if it were not in a quoted non-spoiler block:

The quick brown fox:

  • Jumped over the lazy dog
  • And did something else.

Or no block at all:

The quick brown fox:

  • Jumped over the lazy dog
  • And did something else.

... but that's not what happening. Why?

Spoiler markdown doesn't really work well with other markdown. This is pretty much by design as we don't want too much content being hidden.

That said you can insert a list into spoiler markdown by using plain HTML like the below:

>! The quick brown fox:
>!
>! <ul>
>!   <li>Jumped over the lazy dog</li>
>!   <li>And did something else.</li>
>! </ul>

Which renders as the below:

The quick brown fox:

  • Jumped over the lazy dog
  • And did something else.

  • Breaking spoiler markdown doesn't seem like the reasonable way to discourage long spoilers. – einpoklum Jun 24 at 13:14
  • @einpoklum It's not breaking spoiler markdown, it's a lack of features for it... which is a bit different. – TheLethalCarrot Jun 24 at 13:17
