White Wolf, Inc. is an American gaming company, most famous for the Vampire: The Masquerade roleplaying game. The company was founded in 1991 by Mark Rein-Hagen and Steve and Stewart Wieck. Taking their name from the fiction of Michael Moorcock, they have become one of the world's most successful role-playing game companies.

White Wolf publishes a line of several different but overlapping games set in the "World of Darkness", which generally resembles our world with added supernatural elements, and whose tone is generally described as "gothic punk." In the World of Darkness, vampires, werewolves, mages and other creatures of the night exist and fight each other while remaining hidden from normal humans. The company has also begun publishing some d20 system material under their Sword & Sorcery imprint and revived the Ravenloft gothic horror world owned by Wizards of the Coast.

To complement some of the company's game lines, there is a LARP system dubbed Mind's Eye Theatre.

White Wolf has also attempted to break into the collectible card game market with Arcadia, Rage, and Vampire: The Eternal Struggle (formerly Jyhad).

Video games based on White Wolf's role-playing properties have also been developed.
