Destroy/Be Destroyed mnemonic suggestion

Some of these transitive/intransitive pairs kill me and I keep mixing them up. Here’s my suggestion for a mnemonic for 滅ぼす/滅ばす (to destroy/to be destroyed).

滅ぼす - you’re the boss (ボス) so you do the destroying
滅ばす - you’re a sheep (バー) so you get destroyed

But what if you’re a boss sheep?
