It seems that multi‐capturing two‌‐square leapers are oddly popular as knight enhancements: this game has the multi‐capture apparently mandatory for when going to Alibaba destinations, but still allows leaping otherwise; Larry Smith's Li Qi replaces knights with ‘Young’ Chu‐shogi lions, which cannot move back to the starting square, to match its planar linepieces; and ofc H. G.'s Mighty‐lion Chess replaces one knight with a full Lion.

I wonder why?
