1. Princess Tutu - "Håll Om Mig" by Nanne Grönvall: One of the two AMVs that single-handedly inspired me to check out the attached series. Guitar ninjas indeed.
2. True Tears - "Gypsy" by Ronan Hardiman: This is the other one. True Tears turned out to be a decent coming-of-age sleepy-Japanese-town love triangle romance that was kind of slow for my tastes, but this made it look epic, especially with the dancing scenes.
3. Samurai Champloo - "Tribute" by Tenacious D: Favorite comedy AMV? Favorite comedy AMV.

EVEN IF THE TENDONS OF MY THUMBS TEAR INTO NOTHINGNESS, EVEN IF I GO NEARSIGHTED FROM STARING TOO HARD AT THE SCREEN, EVEN IF MY BODY IS CLOSE TO COLLAPSE FROM THE 72 HOURS I HAVE GONE WITHOUT FOOD! I WILL DEFEAT YOU!
Sailor Mars Tribute: "Stand My Ground" by Within Temptation. Partly because the maker was extremely clever with their cuts, and rigged together an ambiguous kiss between Moon and Mars, partly because it...well, it got me into WT.

"Roseate Nocturne" from Utena
I swear, I'd never even heard of Evanescence at the time I first saw this. And unlike every video I've seen featuring them since, in this case the lyrics are not overly melodramatic - in this instance, for Anthy, they are accurate. I have a whole folder of Utena videos but this is my favorite (probably of anything ever).
I also have a folder devoted to Cowboy Bebop videos, of which the most notable are "Tainted Donuts" (which is a Bebop / Trigun crossover, and hilarious if you've seen both shows, but if you haven't you probably won't get it) and the impressive Pulp Fiction which is *really* well timed, as well as a great introduction to the show.
While it suffers from being a Linkin Park song and everyone hates them now, "Paranoia Rebirth" does a nice job at summing up Ayashi No Ceres (and is well timed). If you've never heard of it, this may give you some interesting guesses as to what the plot is about!
There's also a Key The Metal Idol video to Nine Inch Nail's "Closer" (NSFW!!!!) which sums up the show, but with MASSIVE, MASSIVE spoilers. However, as I was kinda pissed off at that anime after finishing it, I would tend to recommend that you watch the video INSTEAD of the entire series. The AMV author was also extremely depressed and angry when making it, IIRC. Be warned, it is meant to be disturbing.
I also have a multiple-series AMV to "Come What May" which makes me blub from the overdose of romantic angst. I'm a soft touch. However I couldn't possibly find that exact video on youtube, so you won't get to find out just how easy I am.
I used to download AMVs all the time and I only kept the ones I thought were awesome, so I have a decent collection of memorable ones, but I don't think you want to hear about ALL of them... do you?

Here's my personal favorite:
G Gundam - Song of the Victory
They did a crazy amount of editing to make the show look like a fighting game. The music they used is a Para Para remix of an actual G Gundam song, which makes it like ten billion times more awesome!
That said, it seems strange to think that it can be easier to use streaming media than to get some downloaded video files to work with older computers and software such as VLC. I rarely use streaming video sites, even though apparently everyone else on the internet does...
I hadn't heard of the video which Ramidel mentioned. But after a web search and a click or two, I found a "Sailor Mars Tribute" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpipRSS1 ... re=related
Most of my faves overlap with the "best comedy / fun / parody" AMV viewers choice awards. I know that there's plenty of good action/drama/experimental videos. But just looking over the winners from the last few years, I was reminded of "D-ON!" (Detroit Metal City versus K-on, with Tenacious D music), "The Harassment of Kyon" (awesome use of an Avril song), Vlad G Pohnert's "The Audition," and " omgsuperluckyhappyfunvideoGO" (from a person who's also made Friendship is Magic PMVs).
A non comedy video that I enjoy: "Shounen Bushido" by Istiv. The music alone is way over the top. But this video features multiple characters from multiple series in nearly every frame. Reminds me what I like about action/fighting series.
I'm a fan of Suberunker's videos. It's been a couple years since the last one, but this person created "Wizard of Ozaka," "The Wedding Rings," and "Still Preoccupied with 1985." All three are quite funny. Each of them include amusing inside jokes and fandom shout-outs.
Likewise, Ileia has made a bunch of LOL-worthy videos. "The Cyrus Virus" and "Blame It on 2009" are good places to start.
And I'm a fan of Dokidoki Productions. This person made quite a few laugh-out-loud AMVs from 1999 - 2010.
