Another pair of UEVs along similar lines that occur to me are Stewarded Chess and Contrastearded Chess. For the Rook/Bishop/Queen/Knight Stewarded Chess substitutes the Stewapacifier (Rook capturing as Ferz), Stewasnatcher (Wazir capturing as Bishop), Stewardess (Rook capturing as Bishop), and Challenger (Knight capturing as Camel). Contrastewarded Chess substitutes the Contrastewasnatcher (Ferz capturing as Rook), Contrastewapacifier (Bishop capturing as Wazir), Contrastewardess (Bishop capturing as Rook), and Contrachallenger (Camel capturing as Knight). Again the Queen replacement is significantly weaker, the Knight one stronger, and the Bishop one unbound.
