What if "the power the Dark Lord knows not" had nothing to do with love? What if it had everything to do with justice?The Crow: Phoenix Rising
is a Harry Potter Cross Over
in which Harry is killed by Voldemort and returns as The Crow to brutally murder all those Death Eaters who have escaped justice
. It is complete.
The Crow: Phoenix Rising'' provides examples of:
- Alternate Universe Fic: The story begins when Harry and Ginny are captured and killed by Death Eaters at Bill and Fleur's wedding.
- Baleful Polymorph: Harry turns Bellatrix into a dog and leaves her with Marge Dursley, who's favorite hobby is breeding bull dogs.
- Biting-the-Hand Humor: This Leaning on the Fourth Wall 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.
- Black Comedy: Even after turning into "an undead killing machine" Harry doesn't lose his snark.
- Bondage Is Bad: Harry is disturbed by Death Eater bedroom activities.

- Cruel and Unusual Death: For Harry's victims... if they're lucky.
- Dark Fic: You can expect a violent death or two per chapter.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Well, supposedly. The Avatar of Death and Justice is a brutal undead Serial Killer but he will not harm "innocents" and even his Revenge list takes a backseat to saving innocent lives. Though Harry himself often wonders if he hasn't crossed the line with his sadism.
- Dead to Begin With: Harry
- Death Trap: Harry gets annoyed after carefully planning out his Death Trap of 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.
- Evil Lawyer Joke:
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.

- He Who Fights Monsters: It's Lampshaded that Harry has become a monster that's just as bad if not worse than the Death Eaters he's fighting.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Harry as the Crow. To be fair he found his scary Crow outfit by just piecing together whatever he found lying around Grimmauld Place.
- Hoist by His Own Petard:
- Harry cut off Fenrir's legs and put them before him while he was in wolf mode, causing him to eat them.
- 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.

- The Law of Diminishing Defensive Effort: More often than not Harry lets deadly spells just hit him because he's already dead.

- Omniscient Morality License: 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.
