What Tornado Will Each Year Be Remembered For Most?

(Disclaimer: I have to assume somewhere on this site there is a thread that is basically the same as this, but either way, here we go)

As most of us know, most of the recent years have been filled with memorable tornadoes, be it for their beauty, destructive power, memorable chasing conditions, etc. However, it seems that every year has one tornado that shines on the spotlight.

So I had a thought. From 1990 to the present, what would you say is the likely king of each of these almost 30 years. (Not looking for an overall winner from the three decades, just the top from each year.) I just kinda want to see what the concensus will be. Obviously some years will have one that takes the cake immediately (99-Moore, 07-Greensburg, etc), but others may have several giving each other a run for their money. Don't make this a pissing contest over who's right and who's wrong. I just am interested in your honest opinions. Have fun! :)
