Personally, I like to work from the over-under clinch, and I have a few takedowns I set up from there. Obviously the outside leg-sweep and the hip throw, but there are a few other, more interesting ones, which will probably be better for the thread.
The first is a variation of the low single, where I pull my underhook, grab my opponent behind one knee to lift it up and sweep the other leg with one of my legs. This typically lands me in half-guard, but it's also a flat half-guard, which is nice.
The second is a wizzer based on an aikido technique called sumi-otoshi. I lock in my overhook (and pull my underhook), and to finish the throw I step away from my opponent and turn my torso down. It's really effective and, if your opponent tries to just ground themselves, it can be adjusted to work as a leg sweep.
Those are sort of my go-to techniques that are a little bit out of the ordinary.
