Default What are you favorite three PERKS

Please remember Kromm's directive that Quirks and Perks should not just be ornamental but should be something that is worth the +/- point and require some roleplaying.
That said, what are your top three favorite PERKS?

My favorite Perks are:
  • Kewl: +1 reaction bonus among people who already have a neutral or better reaction to you, whenever successfully demonstrating one of your skills (defaults count, but you must make the skill roll).
  • Specialized Appearance: Like Appearance, but gives a +1 reaction bonus only with people with the quirk "Likes X" (where X equals muscles, tattoos, a specific cultural style, etc).
  • Anything else I suggested.
  • Mary-Sue.
There's a whole thread on perks with potential suggestions.

That's more than a Perk. It's Injury Tolerance (No Vitals), limited either -60% (as per BIO63), or -30% (because TH penalty is -3, as per limited DR rules). That's 2+ points, and Perks can't have %modifiers either. :(

My choices:
  • Sanitized Metabolism
  • Eyes Change Color
  • something else depending on character, most likely Accesory (hidden spraygun or the like, loaded with some ultratech drug).

I know a player who used a similar to successively drink, seduce, and rob the whole party of other PCs in a fantasy campaign. Including the paladin. And the priestess. Never played with that party again, of course.

I don't really think that I have three favorites, but every one of the ladies in my Spellgate campaign made a point of taking Shtick: Can run, climb, fight, etc. while wearing high heels without suffering any special penalty for bad footing.

According to them, we men simply cannot understand how important this ability is...
