Thanks for your comment!

Yes, the Ninja Guard and Ninja Warrior are identical to elephant/war machine except for the jump over capturing mechanism and double capture.

Jean-Louis Cazaux also invented the excellent Toulousain Chess

The Gryphon is quite an interesting piece and perhaps even more so when it is vulnerable which is why I limited its moves.
The Anti_gryphon is also a limited form of the Aanca.

It might be useful to add more pieces to the current Piececlopedia
