Unconventional D&D Races

We all know the "Neo-Tolkien" race of D&D by heart. But, D&D has a litany of races that goes well beyond that. From classic critters like treants, dryads, pixies, pookas and sphinxes, to monster races like orcs, goblinoids, gnolls and ogres, to more bizarre creatures beside; what are the races outside the mold that you most like, or most wish would come back, or just have fond memories of playing?

Also, 5e Race Conversion thread, because why the fuck not, it's been a few weeks since my last one.
