A person with low self esteem who combats this with a unwavering need to aid others who may or may not need it. They usually have very isolated personal lives as they are very judgmental of others, surrounding themselves only with those who feed their desire to help and feel as a savior. Most commonly sighted in young men in regards to women, this is only a lesser form as it is usually only temporary, fading with life experience. More serious cases occur in correlation with chronic self esteem problems where the person needs to maintain a high view of themselves through self righteous acts of kindness. These people enjoy surrounding themselves with troubled individuals, who form a farm which is harvested for what they use as pseudo self esteem.
Don't give the white knight reason to flaunt his "good deeds".

A white knight is a man who will go to great lengths to defend women, whether they are attacked physically, verbally, or sexually. In fact, it does not matter if the woman is attacked at all. They will ditch their own best friends, hit people, or say things they never would elsewhere, just to "protect" that woman. White knights come in all shapes and sizes.

White knights are generally men with seriously low self esteem issues. They are also sexually depraved, and have never had a girlfriend or any female attention for that matter. They use their white knightry as a last ditch attempt to get laid and/or "prove" their worth to society. Usually socially awkward people who tend to live in fantasy worlds, and will brag about their "heroic deeds" and "manliness" in every conversation with people. Tend to identify as women supporters or feminists, but could not be further from the truth as all they do is reinforce the idea that women are weak.

Hated by true feminists and men's rights activists (MRAs) alike.
Examples of white knights:
1. A guy and a girl are walking in a mall. They start to argue, and the guy suddenly grabs the girl's hand.
"Let go!" The girl yells.
Suddenly, a random stranger appears out of nowhere.
Stranger: "You coward! How dare you touch a woman! Don't you know hitting women is cowardly and unmanly?"
*punches guy*
*guy retaliates, beats the shit out of stranger*
Girl (slaps stranger): "Idiot! He's my boyfriend. Why don't you go mind your own fucking business?"
*girl and guy walk out*

2. A bar
John yells at a girl: "How dare you cheat on me? Fuck you, you bloody whore! Bitch!"
A random guy comes in
Random guy: "How dare you use such words for my beauty? Take that." (Beats John up)
Girl: " Aw, how romantic!"

(To another guy) "Come on honey, let's go!" (Both walk away)
John: "man, get a life. These sluts don't give a shit about you."

3. Chris: "Come on Paul, you know me and Thomas were never there at the party. Caroline is lying."
Paul: "No, shut up. I know you liars. My sweet Caroline cannot lie."
(To Caroline): "Don't listen to these women hating scumbags. I know you are always right."
Caroline: aww!
Thomas (to Chris): "man, Paul is such a loser and a white knight."

A gaming term used to describe a male gamer who, in a desperate attempt to get himself laid, will attempt to woo or impress any female gamer he comes across online by being overly defensive of her and giving her special attention, such as playing as a healing class and only healing her.
Why do those white knights try so hard to impress the girls they run into online? Do they actually think they're going to get laid?

According to the MISC on the BodyBuilding website: A white knight is defined as a male that treats woman as goddesses and does nothing but shower then in compliments on how wonderful and beautiful and special they are. Maybe be used as a noun or a verb.
Brah, if you keep white knighting every girl you meet, you'll never get as action.
