Types of Pentas

I was thinking about pentas in general, and I realized that most champions could be classified into three types of penta-ers.

Type 1: There are the teamfight penta-ers. These are champions with a kit that allows them to destroy a team in one teamfight, but champions that have lowish chasing power to secure escapers. These kits usually involve strong AoE

Type 2: There are the cleanup penta-ers. Contrary to the way the name sounds, these penta-er dont just ks everyone, even though they technically can. These champions have mostly single-target damage, but very highh chasing power and are very strong at mopping up escapers from a lost fight.

Type 3: Then there are those in between. These champions have a combination of the two, meaning that they have the power to rack up 2 to 3 kills in the inital teamfight, but utilize resets and/or good chasing power to kill the remaining enemies.

Notable Examples:

Type 1: Twitch, Talon(im biased on this one)

Type 2: Jinx, Akali, Tryndamere, Udyr, Vayne, Kha'Zix, Darius, Jax, Ezreal

Type 3: Master Yi, Kat, Riven, Yasuo, Fiora, Orianna, Kassadin, Ryze, Shyvana

When I looked for patterns in the champions, the obvious ones were, Type 1 champions have strong AoE, Type 2 champions are all strong duelies or 1v1ers, Most of them are AD, They all snowball quite well.

My questions are: Do you think that there are any other significant types of penta-ers, or should one of the current categories be split up? What other champions should be notable examples? 

Thanks for reading.

EDIT 1: Added some of the suggested ones.
