In dobutsu shogi, the usual starting position is a trébuchet or full-point mutual zugzwang position, but if we remove the chick promotion rule it is a draw.

But are there perhaps other (starting) positions that are trébuchet positions in the absence of chick promotion? I would be most interested in positions with all (starting position) or most of the pieces on the board and on the back rank.
