I'd like to have an object that has some sort of special property so that it can't be deleted by accident.

for example: if I press X, it will not delete this object but will instead deselect it or something

Can this be achieved with a custom property? or perhaps a script? outliner shenanigans?

    $\begingroup$ A couple of available methods are giving an object a fake user, and / or making an object unselectable. There is a difference between un-linking an object from the scene (or from its collection in the scene) and deleting it from the blend entirely. An object with a fake user will not be removed from the blend with X, instead it will be unlinked from the scene. Somewhat related blender.stackexchange.com/questions/163695/… $\endgroup$
