White Hat is a stick figure character in xkcd. He is distinguished by his eponymous white hat which appears to be in the shape and style of a boater. He has a similar appearance to Black Hat other than the color of their respective hats. However, he is far less often depicted. He is sometimes referred to as "White Hat Guy" in the transcripts.

Unlike White hat characters in fiction or hacker terminology, xkcd's White Hat is not smart or heroic. In fact, he is often depicted making faulty statements that are criticized by other characters.
