What are the Top 5 plugins you ACTUALLY use?

I have this feeling that big companies (such as Waves) have this marketing strategy to pay successful mixers a ton of money to say that they use their plugins, giving us this subconscious feeling that their plugins are great. Which has lead to this trickle-down effect where now the bedroom producers also praise all these plugins giving it an even more powerful effect.

Hopefully this is not total gibberish and maybe I'm all wrong here, but this leads to my question. Do you actually use, for example, Waves plugins? If not, what are the top 5 plugins you actually use?

Thanks for your time! and please share with me if I'm not alone on this thought process.
