CVP has Billiards Progressive Chess link that shows Gilman is right that, as Queen can be double-pathed off one bounce (to certain squares), both Bishop and Q qualify off two or three reflections as dual-pathed.  For Betza's Rose too, I think however return all the way to departure square after full circuit is better dis-allowed, though not a null move since they may be blocked. Thanks for suggestion of Crooked Bishop for follow-up, 'Multipath' being more general category than 'Leaper' or 'Rider' and having countless examples.
