* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' has Yang Neumann, who normally is a mecha engineer but pulls double duty as this in his free time. He's even seen hacking into [[VirtualIdol Sharon Apple]]'s system at some point [[spoiler: and unintentionally causes her to see Isamu, [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom which will cause her to]] notice [[StalkerWithACrush him]]...]]

** Besides being an IdolSinger, Reina Prowler of ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' serves as this for [[GirlGroup Walkure]]; in fact, her trying to hack into its parent organization Chaos was what got her recruited in the first place.

* Many computer geeks feel themselves to be exactly this. This flavor of hacker refer to themselves as "White Hats" (at least, those who just look for exploitations and inform the authors of the software). Word of advice--don't screw with government pages. It seems any sort of hacker does time after vandalizing a government page.
** The trick is to vandalize some other government's page than your own. (Just kidding, never do anything like that--honest!)



** You Tube [[RickRoll rickrolled]] everyone on April Fool's.



** It is becoming increasingly common for corporations to do that. This is called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penetration_test penetration testing]].



* Despite all the good many real life playful hackers do, for the most part it's {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. Many hackers' idea of fun is spreading viruses, crashing websites, and causing other sorts of mayhem for their own [[ItAmusedMe entertainment]].

* Yukabacera from ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'' is apparently one, according to his [[http://www.remar.se/yuka/index.php hidden character pages on Daniel Remar's official site]]. He'll hack one of the station terminals in the room just to code a video game for other people's enjoyment. (This game can actually be played in Sector 6, the sector where Yukabacera is hiding)

* The Data Angels of ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' are an entire country of these, headed by Sinder Roze, a cybercriminal who got aboard the ''Unity'' by [[BoxedCrook opting to work as the ship's network admin as part of her community service]]. The Data Angels are concerned greatly about the freedom of the individual and the freedom of information, which often puts them into conflict with the [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill collectivist]] [[DirtyCommies Human Hive]] and the [[TheFundamentalist fanatical]] [[ChurchMilitant Lord's Believers]]. The Data Angels have access to Probes which are not only more effective than those of other factions, but much cheaper as well, and they gain any technology for free when it is discovered by three other factions. Unfortunately, they can't use the Power value in social engineering, giving them fewer options for building a strong military, and [[WeAreStrugglingTogether they have a much harder time keeping order in their cities and generally working as a group]] - in a nation of individualistic hackers, everyone wants to be chieftain, even if they are chieftain alone, and nobody wants to be just another soldier in someone else's army.
