Phoenix appears as both "Phoenix" and "Dark Phoenix" in X-Men: Next Dimension for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Nintendo Gamecube.

Phoenix also appears as "Phoenix" in the X-Men: Mutant Academy games for the Sony PlayStation.

In X-Men: Next Dimension, Jean helps to defend the X-Mansion from an attack by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. She and the X-Men are successful in holding back the Brotherhood, but Professor Xavier feels that the attack is too focused, and suspects it is a diversion. He sends Forge to investigate, and he finds the grounds being patrolled by Sentinels. Despite his best attempts, Forge is defeated and taken to Bastion. When the X-Men and Brotherhood learn that Bastion plans to use Forge's abilities to create a mutant power dampener, Jean and the rest of the X-Men reluctantly ally with the Brotherhood to stop Bastion.

After fighting through a legion of Sentinels to get to Bastion, many of the X-Men are stripped of their powers by the advanced Sentinels. Bastion uses a trans-mat system to flee to Asteroid M, and is followed by Magneto, Juggernaut, Wolverine and Jean.

After disposing of Juggernaut with the trans-mat system, Bastion faces Magneto, Jean and Wolverine. Wolverine faces Bastion first, and regardless of who wins, Magneto will face Bastion next. If Magneto is defeated by Bastion, then Jean will fight him.

If Jean defeats Bastion, she regards his still body for a moment before stepping over him and flying a de-powered Magneto up to Asteroid M's control room. She, Magneto and Wolverine then return to their team with one of Bastion's robotic hands, and use it to re-power their allies. After a brief discussion, the X-Men and the Brotherhood agree to part with no more fighting. She then confirms Bastion's death to Professor X, though he is sceptical that his threat is truly gone.

However, in an alternate ending, after besting Bastion, Jean bears down on him to deliver the finishing blow. Before she can, Cyclops teleports to Asteroid M to assist her. Jean runs over to him and, while the two are distracted, Bastion fires a beam of energy at Cyclops, blasting him through the viewing window into the vacuum of space. Jean is distraught as her husband's body drifts away, and Bastion prepares to fire at her too. Furiously turning to Bastion with flaming eyes, Phoenix is engulfed in her trademark fire raptor and screams Bastion's name as her anguish causes Dark Phoenix to surface.

As Professor X watches Asteroid M from the X-Mansion, he suddenly detects Dark Phoenix's presence on the satelite. An explosion decimates Asteroid M, and Xavier is thrown to the ground. Dark Phoenix, engulfed in her trademark fire raptor, flies from the wreckage of Asteroid M and disappears behind the Moon, which is then destroyed by the cosmic entity. Dark Phoenix is last seen heading towards Earth.


Seemingly those of Jean Grey of Earth-616.
