In no particular order

Never seize, works as a lube on metal to metal stuff that moves slowly or infrequently

Lok ease, graphite in a very light oil, good for locks & cables, loosens up old hard grease

White lightening bicycle chain wax, another dry lube, it doesn't attract dust, good to keep the seat latch cable free

Black Paint Marker https://www.acehardware.com/departments/home-and-decor/office-supplies/markers-and-highlighters/2404382
Doesn't fade like a sharpie, good for layout, touching up the frame or anything black

Lock tite 290 green, works on assembled fasteners, stronger than the blue, weaker than the red

Cyanoacrylate adhesive ("Crazy Glue", Zap, etc.) in various formulations (instant, 30-second, gap-filling, plastic-compatible, etc.)
Nitromethane (catalyst for above, useful for the slower-curing variants).

Epoxy of varying cure rates, as needed.

Remember, anyone can accidentally glue their fingers together with cyanoacrylates -- it takes a real talent to glue one's fingers together with epoxy.

Hey Steve, I really like Plexus but think it’s over priced what’s your source and price paid ?

Well I live in Toronto Canada and I see by my local shop that they want $39.95 for the 13 oz size. Of course that's in Canuck-bucks!
I still have a couple of cans in the garage but WOW, has it gone up in price. Used to be able to get it for around $25 but I see those days are over.
What I generally do is wait for the winter or spring bike shows and someone always has it on sale so when I see a deal, I grab a few cans. Generally I use one can per season so it doesn't hurt too much.

ACF-50: Stops Suzuki alloys crumbling to oxide-dust before the run-in period has even expired :)
Henry Westons Vintage Cider: for special jobs e.g. when a Tupperware tab snaps off or when brakes just won't bleed.
