As opposed to the malicious [[TheCracker Cracker]] who uses his computer skills for profit and mayhem, the [[TitleDrop PlayfulHacker]] normally wants nothing more than to explore new territory on the Net and learn new things. Sometimes, he plays harmless pranks which can cause clueless authority figures to confuse him with his dark counterpart. Even when his actions are not strictly legal, though, his intentions and presence are almost always benign--even heroic. [[http://catb.org/jargon/html/H/hacker.html This is what "hacker" used to mean, before mass media mutated it]].

*Sombra from ''VideoGame/OverWatch'' blurs the like quite a bit in deciding whether or not she's a Playful Hacker or a Cracker. On one hand, her motives ''seem'' just, which is to know who really runs the world, but she works with the terrorist organization Talon to find this info.

* [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' says that one of his hobbies is "tweaking" technology, and he's described as "tinkering" with his computer in the [[DeepImmersionGaming Hetalia Fantasia CD]]. He at one point hacks Finland's audio and cell devices to get them to go off constantly in an attempt at forcing him to spend time with him. He describes [[HollywoodNerd Estonia]] as his rival tweaker, and at one point, Estonia accuses Russia of hacking his blog and turning it into a fansite for himself. [[spoiler: He didn't...and was [[BerserkButton quite upset at Estonia]] [[PipePain for thinking so.]]]]
