I'm not sure if this is 100% for certain but I think there is a few we just sort of have to remember are polydentate, for instance, en, ethylenediamine or dien, diethylenetriamine. But I doubt he will give us some that we have not reviewed
Polydentate ligands can be identified be pretty highly inferred by the availability of sites that can form coordinate covalent bonds and their proximity to each other. Regions with many electron pairs (such as amine groups) within an atom are very good at becoming ligands, so molecules with many of these groups close together can easily form polydentate ligands.
