In the second example, the second solution mate is by 3…Bf3 (Pg3)#

I found this magnificent example (with neutral units):
Jan GOLHA, 3rd Prize FIDE Cup 2010
white: Kc2, black: Kf4 Pe6, neutrals: Sf5 Sf6 Bg4
h#3, Circe Parrain, 3 solutions
1.n♗h3 ♔d2 2.n♗xf5 ♔e2 (+n♘g5) 3.exf5 n♘e6 (+n♗d6)#
1.n♘e7 n♗xe6 2.♔e5 (+♙d7) ♔d3 3.dxe6 n♘d7 (+n♗c7)#
1.e5 n♘xg4 2.♔e4 (+n♗f4) ♔c3 3.exf4 n♘g3 (+n♗g2)#

A 3-fold exact echo with double-check mate by neutral Bishop and Knight! In each solution Black’s final move is a capture of the neutral Bishop by the Pawn.

1.nBg4-h3 Kc2-d2 2.nBh3*f5 Kd2-e2[+nSg5] 3.e6*f5 nSg5-e6[+nBd6] #
1.nSf5-e7 nBg4*e6 2.Kf4-e5[+bPd7] Kc2-d3 3.d7*e6 nSf6-d7[+nBc7] #
1.e6-e5 nSf6*g4 2.Kf4-e4[+nBf4] Kc2-c3 3.e5*f4 nSf5-g3[+nBg2] #

It is not clear, however, if the double check mates are thematic.
