What is your favorite ADE-style classification? Here ADE style is to be understood in a very broad sense. A classification which is not precisely ADE, but roughly related is fine. For example simple complex Lie algebras, or affine Weyl groups would be okay.

Electric plugs!! It has a few more extra types, exactly as your simple complex Lie algebras...
