Go 20 or 21 or 23 or 24 or 25!
Spoiler:
20
[spoiler]20 = 1 + 3 + 6 + 10, the first four triangle numbers (numbers that are the sums of the natural numbers 1 to n)

sum of the first 6 Fibonacci numbers

also the number closest to e^pi - pi

21
Spoiler:
21 is the 6th triangle number = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6
also the last Fibonacci in the list

23
Spoiler:
23 the last prime in the list
e^pi is just a little bit above 23

24
Spoiler:
24 the last factorial in the list
the first number of the form 2^3 * q, where q is an odd prime.

It is the smallest number with exactly eight divisors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. It is a highly composite number, having more divisors than any smaller number. Adding up all the proper divisors of 24 except 4 and 8 gives 24, hence 24 is a semiperfect number.

Subtracting one from any of its divisors (except 1 and 2, but including itself) yields a prime number. 24 is the largest number with this property, for to have this property a number cannot be divisible by a prime greater than three, nor can it be divisible by 9 or 16.

The atomic number of chromium

25
Spoiler:
25 not only the last number, but also the last square

22 however is an outcast, avoid the misfit!

24 is my favorite though

Four. There are four letters in Four.
There are Three letters in One. There are Five letters in Three. There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
There are Three letters in Two. There are Five letters in Three. There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
There are Five letters in Three. There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
There are Three letters in Six. There are Five letters in Three. There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
There are Five letters in Seven. There are Four letters in Five. There are Four letters in Four.
This patter works all the way...
There are Nine letters in Twenty-Six. There are Four letters in Nine. There are Four letters in Four.

Also, four lines are used on a digital clock to make 4.
Four planets within the Asteroid Belt.
Four is the first non-prime number.

Four should clearly win.

I chose 6!
Many of the measurements of time are in multiples of 6 (60 seconds, 60 min, 24 hours)
6 is also a perfect number (multiples = 1, 2, 3. 1+2+3=6)
Only number that is both the sum and the product of three consecutive whole numbers (1,2,3)
It's a highly composite number
It's a triangular number as is it's square (36).
6 Rules. (12 does to, but you can consider it what 20 is to 10 in base 6).
I love 6.

what about 0? And what do you define by number? You should say positive integer.

Anyways, I'm still saying 20, 21, 23, 24, or 25.
But 24 is still my favorite

INCORRECT! 1 Is the first technically, because it doesn't have 2 factors, it only has one.
