trivial as can be
x = 1 y = 1 rule = B/S
b!

A 'mirrored' triangle:
x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai5e6n/S1e2ace3-acjk4t
bo$bo3$3o!

something related:
x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai5e6kn7c8/S1e2ace3-acjk4t
bo$bo3$3o!

This one is also interesing:
x = 3, y = 5, rule = B2ce3ai6i/S1e2ace3-acjk4t
bo$bo3$3o!

I don't recognize this class

x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j

it replicates, every 8 generations, into 3 copies, one forward, 2 sideward. collisions result in mutual destruction.
it seems to be a hybrid between quadruple replicators and sierpinski generators...

It replicates, but once 4 of them are far enough apart it makes a phase shifted replicator in the middle that eventually destroys a third of the replicators' children. After that, it has 4 replicators on 4 corners of a rhombus, that do in fact behave as class Q, albeit on a slightly larger scale.

Do these two class-U replicators follow an identical replication sequence? I'm finding it difficult to figure out.
x = 5, y = 6, rule = B35a6ae78/S23

I think that would be another class U. :? It's clearly fractal-based, as can be seen most clearly at generations 2^n - 1 for integer n, but I don't think that fractal has a name.

Ah, I suppose that five-way replicator sort of counts, though it's not a symmetrical pentagon. That other replicator seems like another class U (it's simulating a sort of a fractal, similar to but different from the Sierpinski carpet).

And that fractal also has an intricate pattern of lines going between the squares.

Interesting, the only debris it leaves behind is a single tub in the middle. Other than that, it's completely clean.

The rule is a exploding rule...

After some random works, I ended up with this Class F(?)
x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3-n4a/S1e2-ak3ijnr

A mesmerising and beautiful pattern, and I love how it's almost a replicator made of spacefillers. I guess it's more class A than class D, though I find it a bit hard to distinguish those two.

I suppose a class A stops replicating and turns into another pattern, and a class D continues replicating at its outer edges but leaves behind chaos in its centre, but even the OP doesn't really make this distinction clear - the second posted class D looks like it could be class A. The first example class D suggests it's supposed to be a sort of "class F but messier".

ain't this more of a "explosion" rule than a actual replicator

That's just a sawtooth. The number of replicator cores does not get larger.
