-->Bird, rise high from the cinders / Leave it all far behind / All the ruins and the fire / Bird, raise your head from the ashes / Many men lay dead / You can see them like I / Phoenix rise, raise your head to the sky

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's "Literature/ThePhoenixOnTheSword", the image of a phoenix put on ConanTheBarbarian's sword both lets him kill the EldritchAbomination and proves he wasn't dreaming.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', the [[ComicBook/XMen Phoenix Force]] is [[CompositeCharacter merged]] with [[ComicBook/Sandman Destruction of the Endless.]] And after 70 chapters of hints, chapter 71 spectacularly and violently confirms that Harry's protection [[spoiler: comes from the Phoenix Force, which can act through him when required]] while chapter 78 confirms that Lily [[spoiler: merged with the Phoenix as part of the deal, becoming the White Phoenix of the Crown and the Phoenix's avatar.]]

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', it is fairly obvious that Harry has some degree of connection to the Phoenix Force, which almost certainly has something to do with his mother (who was [[spoiler: and maybe still is - her alive/dead status is rather up in the air]] red headed, green eyed [[spoiler: and Jean Grey's first cousin once removed]]). He's also noted as a prodigy with fire magic, light seems drawn to him, he's fond of the Phoenix symbol and a Phoenix feather in Odin's possession reacted to him.
** Speaking of Lily's association with the Phoenix, it seems that Thor was subconsciously aware of it during his time as James - he repeatedly compared her to a Phoenix, even using the famous phrase, 'Fire and Life Incarnate'.

* ''Age of Wonders'' had a phoenix as a rare, summonable creature. It was extremely powerful and when slain, would resurrect after 3 turns (unlimited).

** ''VideoGame/AgeOfWonders3'' the Phoenix unit returned. This time however its resurrection abilities came from its ability "resurgence" which returned it to life after a battle with 30% of its HitPoints as long as its controller won the battle, which made them a fantastic suicide unit.

* The phoenix is one of the Great Houses of ''{{Dragaera}}''. It is unknown if there are more than one of the animal phoenix, but in order for a Dragaeran to be of the House of the Phoenix, both of their parents must be of the House AND a phoenix must fly over when they are born. Needless to say, the House is all but extinct except Zerika, the Empress.

* ''Literature/ThePhoenixAndTheCarpet'' by Creator/ENesbit contains a phoenix (well duh) and a carpet. Now the Phoenix came with the carpet, as an egg which then burst into flash and released a small bird which then rapidly grew into an adult, English speaking, Phoenix. The carpet also grants three wishes a day and can fly and take the children on adventures.

* There is a short story (name currently unknown) about a group of modern-day people who capture a Phoenix and put it on display. They figure they can make a lot of money by televising the phoenix's death and firey rebirth so they do everything they can to convince the bird that it's dying. When it starts building a pyre, the people train their cameras on it and start their vigil. The phoenix regenerates all right--unfortunately the resulting fireball winds up taking out most of the observers and a huge chunk of the city with it.
* Creator/NeilGaiman wrote a story ("Sunbird") for his daughter's birthday about a group of gourmets who, having [[ExoticEntree eaten one of everything else on the planet]], are inspired to hunt and devour a phoenix by the oldest member of the group. The member who keeps their records looks back through it and finds that the club has tried this in the past, but the pages after each attempt are strangely burnt. [[spoiler:They find the phoenix, kill it, and cook it - but as they eat it, their bodies are consumed in flames. The old man who suggested the hunt is unharmed due to his habit of eating increasingly hot objects; in fact, he's done this dozens of times before, becoming immortal by regularly eating the phoenix.]]
