The essentially one-piece-type(like Battle Chieftain) moves according to the rank on which it stands. Charosh's 1972 N-Relay permits piece guarded by own Knight to move as Knight. Neto's 2003 Delegating Chess extends that to any friendly piece relaying its power by coverage. Havel's Jester in 1999 moves like the last opponent's piece moved. Betza's Zero-Relay allows multiple occupancy and then ability to move off a square with power of another friendly piece on that same square. And so on with the likes of Chameleon in Ultima/Rococo(1962/2002) capturing according to the victim's method. Well, this one is the minimalist option among the notions. Just follow the sidebar.
