Our rankings are purely based on personal experience and opinion and may differ from your experience. However, we have some favorites like Masonic Pyramid, Space Turner, Dr. Teddy, By-The-Wind, Canine Skull, and Pyro Dino.

If we take cuteness and other utilities into factor, Deviants like Buzzy Bee, Logging Beaver, and Chefosaurus Rex top the list. One of the most unique Deviant I’ve seen is the gingerbread house which basically turns Once Human into a game of Prop Hunt.
