Neutral piece (n): A unit with this characteristic may be regarded as of either colour by the side whose turn it is to play. Neutral pawns promote to neutral pieces.
Zebra (Z): a (2,3/3,2) leaper [moving directly to the destination square with no pinning or interference effects], e.g. a1>d3 or a1>c4.
Grasshopper (G): Hops on Q-lines over any one unit (the hurdle) to the next square beyond. Q-hopper would be a more sensible name.
