KoBul Kings: When a piece (not a pawn) of his own side is captured, a King transforms into a Royal piece of the same type as the captured one. When the King is in the form of any Royal piece and there is a capture of one of the pawns of his own side, he becomes a normal King again.

Chameleon:At the completion of every move, a unit with this characteristic changes type. The types form a cycle which may theoretically be predefined in any way but is usually taken to be the default option S-B-R-Q-S... Promotion may be to a chameleon at any stage in the cycle.
