* [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] is a rising new star lawyer with the uncanny ability to turn cases around when all hope seems lost. Case 1-5 is even called "Rise From the Ashes". This applies much more to the English version though. In the Japanese version, he is more associated with the dragon and his original Japanese name means dragon.

** Ho-Oh, which resurrected the legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune after the Brass Tower they were in burned down.
** Moltres seems to be more based on the Western phoenix, and Ho-Oh is closer to the Eastern one.

** Moltres, one of Kanto's legendary birds, draws inspiration from the western phoenix myth. Besides being and elemental bird with feathers made of fire, its Pokédex entries state that if it is injured, it will bathe in the lava of a volcano to burn and heal itself.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': Garda birds are [[ElementalEmbodiment fire elementals]] resembling large, beautiful birds with gold, purple or silver feathers (the exact coloration depends on the specific form they are in, as they can take several). They are ageless and immortal -- when one dies, it is reborn in flame nine days later without fail. One of the forms they use for combat, a humanoid with six arms and the head, tail, wings and claws of an eagle, is also referred to as the Phoenix form.

* As an early gag in ''Manga/DragonBall'', the Muten Roshi calls the Immortal Phoenix to grant Son Goku immortality as a reward for saving Umigame/Sea Turtle. However, the Immortal Phoenix does not appear since it died from food poisoning a year ago. Bulma lampshades it.

** Similarly, the Chinese-Japanese mythological bird that is even more often considered the "Asian Phoenix" is the ''fenghuang''/''houou'', despite having even less to do with fire and rebirth. Not helped by the fact that the ''fenghuang'' and ''Zhuque'' are conflated with each other. While it does have some associations with fire and the sun, it's nowhere to the same extent and neither of these birds have anything to do with rebirth.

* [[spoiler: [[MonsterLord The royal family of monsters]]]] in ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'' are actually these. [[spoiler: They can only become an adult phoenix by receiving blessing from THE only adult phoenix, [[HiveMind and then merging into one creature]], just like the myth above. And they gain complete immortality by becoming adults. ]] This is the driving force of the plot: [[spoiler: Since becoming adult phoenix means complete immortality, the siblings must kill each other because there only can be one winner per generation.]] A physical body of a immature royal family usually is as weak as a human, unless they train themselves so hard like Gilliam does. [[BloodMagic Their blood is also magical]], [[LivingOnBorrowedTime it temporarily revives a dead being]], gives it temporary immortality for a few days. After a few days, whoever drank the blood of the royal family must drink it again, but a single drop is more than enough for the next few days. Those who drink a royal's blood are called Blood Warriors, and only few personally chosen by said royals can be one, and becoming a Blood Warrior is considered one of the greatest honor in the universe, as personal bodyguard of the royal. Much later in the story, as phoenix is a being closely tied with fire, [[spoiler: the royal family do can unlock their fire powers without have to be adult phoenix, and capable of upgrading their Blood Warrior into Flame Warrior by putting an eternal flame into their warriors body, and unlike Blood Warriors, a Flame Warrior is not completely dependent on the royal he/she serves, as the flame will never run out of effect, unlike the blood. A Flame Warrior is also capable giving their flame toother Blood Warrior, as Keziah did to Madeline. A talented member of the royal family also capable of turning into half-phoenix-harpy-like being, just like [[http://z.mfcdn.net/store/manga/3601/13-058.0/compressed/nprincess_resurrection_v13_c58_130_131.jpg Emil]], even though he is NOT immortal because he never become an adult and already die, killed by his own vassal [[WingedHumanoid Sledge.]] [[http://z.mfcdn.net/store/manga/3601/20-087.0/compressed/jkaibutsuoujo087_001.jpg Hime too is capable of turning into a semi-phoenix being]] by absorbing her past and future selves , in order to defeat Sylvia who already absorbed Fuhito and both are very powerful to begin with, and cancelled both of her own and Sylvia's powers. After that, Lilianne, Sylvia, and Fuhito, who already lost their royal powers, [[HornedHumanoid is seen with some kind of horns on their heads]].]]
