Symptohm Melohman PE (the free edition) is awesome. (it should have made my list).

If you have just that and Crystal VST you can do a heck of a lot, synth wise.

Also forgot DBlue Glitch.

The Digitalfishphones plugins are also really good (the developer Sascha Eversmeier has since been employed by Magix and develops plugins for Samplitude/Sequoia, so the only drawback is the digitalfishphones plugins have not been developed for a while and will not be developed any further) - Dominion, Endorphin, Blockfish and Spitfish (de-esser) in particular are useful.
