* Symbol of Asuryan, the Elven king of Eternal life and Rebirth in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', hence the king's bodyguard are [[PraetorianGuard the "Phoenix Guard"]]. Actual Phoenices are also available to the High Elf army as monstrous units, and come in two flavours - the classic Flamespyre Phoenix, which is young and fiery and able to come back from the dead in a shower of flames, and the ancient, much tougher Frostheart Phoenix, which trails ice and chill rather than flames, and has lived so long it is no longer able to rebirth itself.
* The Phoenix Lords from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'' are the greatest of all Eldar warriors. The title seems to be related to the phoenix's connection to death and rebirth: the Phoenix Lords are actually spirits residing within soulstones attached to the armor they wore in life. When a volunteer dons the armor, the Lord's personality and will merges with them. As long as the soulstone and the armor remain intact, the Phoenix Lord will never truly die.

* The [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Bennu]], the mythological bird that inspired the concept of the phoenix in the west, was based on a species of extinct heron (''Ardea bennuides''). In turn, the Feng Huan, or "Chinese phoenix", was inspired by the Asian ostriches that lived during the ice ages in China.
