Hadronic boosted object discrimination has been reaching experimental maturity in the last few years especially for the discrimination of boosted Standard Model W’s, Z’s, and H’s against QCD jets, and there is now a wide range of searches utilizing these techniques with great success. In this talk I will discuss a range of topologies that are not yet adequately covered by the existing search program and the models that might give rise to them. I will also comment on the possibility of novel BSM topologies to give rise to seemingly contradictory results between different boosted diboson resonance searches.
