Sentinelles  - On moving, a piece leaves behind a Pawn of its own color on its departure square.
The rule does not apply to Pawns, or to pieces moving from the 1st or 8th rank, nor does it apply if there are eight Pawns of that color already on the board.
Dolphin - Kangaroo+Grasshopper.
Grasshopper - Moves along Queen-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.
Kangaroo  - Moves like a Grasshopper but jumps over two units of either color to the square immediately beyond the second unit.
Gnu - 1:3+1:2 -  hopper.
