Standing on a foot and hitting with a solid right is a good one, can earn a cheap knock down. It's also pretty risky for you too though.
Elbows in the clinch are always nice.
Edit to clarify: Stand on their foot.

Under the Queensbury rules, wouldn't any knee or kick whatsoever, come under the category, too?
Back of the head punches, kidney punches, hitting on a ref's "Break!" signal or at the bell, low blows, etc.
A sweet one is to punch and fold your arm in for elbow strike in the same motion. I've seen pro boxers get away with it because it's subtle and hard to see from many angles.
Larry Hartsell did a bunch of dirty boxing techniqies at his last seminar here in CT. I'll have to see if I can find my notes.
It isn't so much a palm strike as a push to his head, covering his eyes and causing him to tip his chin up. Bingo. Right cross. Of course if he is already exposing his chin, there isn't much need for this.

Feinting a cross to a backside elbow is fun until they catch on. I caught a nasty same-side hook from doing that once.
Sounds like the 1-2 combo. I still say if you can put your hands on his face, you should have a closed fist. If you're talking about just grabbing his head and pushing it back, youd have good control over him anyway.

It comes from knifefighting, hence our slightly different tactics. I've just found that a guy is more likely to cover after you jab him, which negates the cross sometimes. With a push to the head, the guy sometimes flails around, or tips his head back to get your mitt out of his face. It leaves his throat (or chin) open.

-shoulder bump to uppercut
-forearm bump to hook/uppercut
-elbow rise to short right
-knee bump to uppercut
-foot sweep to uppercut
-head slide & head butting

Three I like:
1. Double hook, but make the second one an elbow. What's great is even if their hands are up, you can shock their arms pretty hard and you can always claim this was an accident
2. In a clinch, wipe the guy's chin up with a forearm and then throw a short, straight, shot to the base of his throat (like, the place where the pecs are thinnest and it starts to become neck). You can also headbutt right in the teeth by dropping your hand and headbutting almost at the same time. But I hate headbutting, I don't like the cuts.
3. Hug the guy in a tight clinch, get cheek to cheek with him like a kansas shepard, then tilt the crown of your head against his temple and throw a quick palm heel against the other side of his head
