''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5714450/1/The-Crow-Phoenix-Rising The Crow: Phoenix Rising]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1448192/Belcris Belcris]] is a ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' CrossOver in which Harry is killed by Voldemort and returns as ''Franchise/TheCrow'' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge to brutally murder all those Death Eaters who have escaped justice]]. It is complete.

----
!! The Crow: Phoenix Rising'' provides examples of:
* AlternateUniverseFic: The story begins when Harry and Ginny are captured and killed by Death Eaters at Bill and Fleur's wedding.
* BalefulPolymorph: [[spoiler: Harry turns Bellatrix into a dog [[FateWorseThanDeath and leaves her with Marge Dursley, who's favorite hobby is breeding bull dogs.]]]]
* BitingTheHandHumor: This LeaningOnTheFourthWall gem from chapter six:
--> Honestly, it sounded more like something out of a comic book than someone's actual life. No, it sounded more like a children's book written by a single mother to entertain her kids while she looked for a decent job. Or, maybe it was a cross between the two. I just hoped they got someone good-looking to play me when they made the movie.
* BlackComedy: Even after turning into "an undead killing machine" [[DeadpanSnarker Harry doesn't lose his snark.]]
* BondageIsBad: Harry is disturbed by Death Eater bedroom activities.
* CoolButInefficient: Harry obtained a silver axe from the Goblins to use in his fight against Fenrir. Harry finds that while it looked cool it was very awkward to swing around.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: For Harry's victims... if they're ''[[FateWorseThanDeath lucky.]]''
* DarkFic: You can expect a violent death or two per chapter.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Well, supposedly. The Avatar of Death and Justice is a brutal undead SerialKiller but he will not harm "innocents" and even his {{Revenge}} list takes a backseat to saving innocent lives. [[LampshadeHanging Though Harry himself often wonders if he hasn't crossed the line with his sadism.]]
* DeadToBeginWith: Harry
* DeathTrap: Harry gets annoyed after carefully planning out his Death Trap of [[spoiler: Lucius and Draco]] and telling them in order to have a chance of survival they'd have to kill the other and they both shoot the killing curse at each other immediately, killing each other instantly instead of setting off the Trap.
* EvilLawyerJoke:
--> '''Crow:''' Only the dead, and a few lawyers in New York, would be willing to do the things that have to be done when you are an Avatar of Death and Justice.
* FanArt: [[http://raiderhater1013.deviantart.com/art/Harry-Potter-as-the-Crow-153021823]]
* FanDisservice: Harry has the misfortune of seeing Bellatrix [[spoiler: in a schoolgirl outfit getting spanked by a Dumbledore impersonator.]] His horrified reaction is a pair of Stunning Spells.
* FateWorseThanDeath: What Harry does to Bellatrix.
* ForcedToWatch: The Death Eaters force Harry to watch what they do to Ginny before their deaths.
* GroinAttack: [[spoiler: How Harry kills Fenrir Greyback.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: It's {{Lampshaded}} that Harry has become a monster that's just as bad if not worse than the Death Eaters he's fighting.
* HellBentForLeather: Harry as the Crow. To be fair he found his scary Crow outfit by just piecing together whatever he found lying around Grimmauld Place.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard:
** Harry cut off [[spoiler: Fenrir's legs and put them before him while he was in wolf mode, causing him to eat them.]]
** [[spoiler: Stan Shunpike was a master of the Imperius... so Harry used an Imperius on him to get him to confess his deeds and bring it to the goblins.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: It turns out that Bellatrix cheered on the rape of Ginny but [[spoiler: is herself afraid of getting raped by her "comrades".]]
* IdiotBall: [[spoiler: Voldemort decides to confront Harry in the Death Room in the Department of Mysteries and [[TooDumbToLive forgets to keep an eye out for the Veil.]]]]
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Luna
* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: More often than not Harry lets deadly spells just hit him because [[GoodThingYouCanHeal he's already dead.]]
* MonsterClown: Harry in the Crow makeup.
* MoralityPet: Ginny, Megan, Virginia, Mrs. Weasley, Hermione, Luna, and Ron to Harry. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters He really does need as many as he can get.]]
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: The Crow philosophy.
* TheNothingAfterDeath: Voldemort incorrectly believed this was the case.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler: Stan Shunpike]] was pulling this.
* OffingTheOffspring: [[spoiler: Lucius kills his son attempting to escape Harry's death trap.]]
* OhCrap: Voldemort's reaction to the Killing Curse not working on Harry. And again as [[spoiler: he falls through the Veil.]]
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: [[SpoofAesop Don't worry, there's no need to angst about the gruesome murders you've committed if your magic talking bird friend says it's okay.]]
* {{Patricide}}: [[spoiler: Draco kills his father attempting to escape Harry's death trap.]]
* PayEvilUntoEvil: very much the Crow philosophy.
* PoeticSerialKiller: Harry as "The Avatar of Death and Justice" is fond of using his victim's own weaknesses and fears against them in the cruelest ways possible.
* PureIsNotGood: Only the "pure of heart" may become Avatars for the Crow.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: the entire premise of this fic.
* SerialKillerKiller: Harry
* ShutUpHannibal: Harry refuses to listen to Dumbledore's manipulations any longer and destroys Dumbledore's portrait.
* [[spoiler: SurprisinglyHappyEnding]]
* ToThePain: Harry takes many of his victims here before killing them.
* TheUndead: Harry as The Crow.
* VillainsWantMercy: Bellatrix.
* WaifFu: Harry as the Crow gains this fighting style that emphasizes speed and agility and gymnastic-style martial arts.
