The Ghost piece in the game "Black Ghost" can be captured, making it weaker than and very different from the Ghost in this game. So it is more like the Chess 2 game.

The game of "Pole Chess" has an uncapturable piece called the "Pole" which could go anywhere on the board, Piers Anthony mentioned this game and this piece in a science fiction novel in 1988. {Piers Anthony's description mentioned that there was one special circumstance in which the Pole could be captured, but he never described and apparently never worked out the "Pole-capturing" rule.} There is an article about Pole Chess on this website, as well as my own Zillions implementation of the game.
