Not looking for subtle, barely on sounds. I want a reverb where the wet mix and whatever attached quirky sounds it has is center stage. Pitch, filter, bitcrush, etc....I want it all. Something that'll indulge mycreativity

This video gives you an idea of examples I'm looking for:

oceans 11 has a plethora of weird ehx sounds at the extremes of the settings, max the mix and start turning knobs

Only one I know (and own) is the Prussian Blue. It’s got this kill-dry switch that makes it sound... different. Probably not as wacky as a lot of stuff out there, but still pretty cool nonetheless.

Mentioned above, but Earthquaker Afterneath is fun. Def not subtle. Actually, the TC HOF 2 has some great sounds like this as well

Dr. Scientist Atmosphere is the first pedal that comes to mind for a reverb that can get "wacky and quirky".

I see most of these options don’t have presets or mode switches...I would need those to quickly cycle through different sounds live.

Just watched
The ones I have will send you on a mind-warping trip thru fantasyland...

Shift-Line A+ Astronaut Space v2
Alexander Pedals Space Race
Matthews Effects Cosmonaut v2
Hungry Robot Stargazer v2
Just watched vids on all these... whew... gonna need a VerbBreak...

...it still sounds like Reverb to me tho...

Sometimes I just need to tempt my GAS Immune System to see if it's working... I can say no to Verb today, lol!!!

Ventris is really great for creativity - Offspring, reverse, Lo fi, swell, shimmer van all be combined and twisted to make weird pads, stuttering sweeps and distorted drones.

But some of the others above look amazing as well. I love the Ventris but I’m looking for something to do weird loops, delays, reverses etc. and I’m thinking of the Reaver, Tensor, Mimim, Drolo Stamme, or even the Particle Delay.

Death By Audio Reverberation Machine has onboard distortion that can be rolled on and off along with a brightness/darkness toggle. All of this is surprisingly, happily useful.
