Sentinels Pion advers: When a piece (not a Pawn) moves, a Pawn of the colour of the opposite side appears on the vacated square if it is not on the first or the last rank, and if there are less than 8 Pawns of that colour on the board.

Ultra-Patrol Chess – A piece can move, capture or give check only if it is observed by a piece of its own side.
