Right, sorry. Only as a mnemonic the similarity. If we are not inclined, or used, to IAGO system of A, B, C, M, V, X, or Joyce's Track One and Track Two, we devise our own connections, usually multiple for better effect, whether CVs or pieces. We use themes or artists or copied/stolen pieces or size and so on to remember. These here are pieces in question anyway not entire CVs. When saying Bobber of Existentialist is ''like'' Rook or Bishop here, it is only mnemonically by way of 'x+1'. Bobber there is one stepping Queen, i.e. non-royal King, the first move; and then each (x+1) time its move gains strength of one more step. Another grouped as 'x+1' rather dramatically is Upchess' all the pieces. They are all Pawns in rank 1. Then rank 2 Knights, and so on for each 'x+1' rank, in the order P>N>B>R>Q>K>Q>R>B>N>P. So back to square ''one'' Pawn again at square eleven on Upchess' 11x11: the point being an 'x+1' mnemonic. Now Smith's new pieces would appear to be just that new, their 'x+1' within one move only, unlike Bobber. Fuller effects could be achieved the more enlarged the boards for Smith's particular piece-mutator here.
