Currently of Florea's new CV Apothecary are the classic Gryphon of Grande Acedrex and complementary Aanca. Here are another pair of them from 2001 Bostick's Kung Fu Chess: Wing Chun moving like Aanca and Bruce Lee moving like Gryphon.

'Three pieces can checkmate the Shaolin Master by themselves: the Praying Mantis, Ng Mui, and the promoted Bruce Lee.' Of course, there are many combinations of Shaolin Master and a single piece which can force mate against a lone Shaolin Master. The (unpromoted) Bruce Lee will do the job, as it is identical to the centuries-old Griffon (see the Griffon entry in the Piececlopedia). The companion piece, Wing Chun, does not occur in any chess variant that I know of. Eric Greenwood's 'Duke' is the only piece that even comes close.
