Just a quick one off the top of my head, some older cards have unique versions of +1/+1 counters that either give +1/+0 or +0/+1. Dwarven Armorer does both but there's also things like Coral Reef.

Amplify, which appears only in one set IIRC. Aven Warhawk. Basically just gives it bonus counters when it enters for each creature that shares a type.

Also note:

There are some very rare occasions where +/+ counters don't negate -/- counters. The best example for this would be Baron Sengir. He gives himself +2/+2 counters. This is important because even if he would have 2 -1/-1 counters placed on him, they would not negate each other because it is a single +2/+2 counter, not two +1/+1 counters.

This is also true for cards that give asymmetrical types of counters: Armor Thrull, Frankenstein's Monster, Clockwork Avian, Coral Reef.
