The name of this variant has rather comical overtones that I am not sure are intended. There is of an echo of The Return of the King, of course, in Lord of the Rings, but as the inventor five years ago of Pink Panther Chess I am also reminded of the Return, and later the Revenge, of the Pink Panther. What this combination suggests to me is a spoof LOTR sequel written by (or at least in the style of) Blake Edwards.
