"It's Magic. I Ain't Gotta Explain Shit" is an expression associated with a reaction image used in response to a request for an explanation. Variations of the phrase are often posted online as well, using the phrasal template "It's X. I ain't gotta explain shit."


The earliest known archived usage of the phrase can be dated back to August 7th, 2008[4]. The picture, which was the basis for the original image macro, depicts the character Dungeon Master from the Dungeons & Dragons animated TV series, which aired in 1983-1985. The earliest archived use as a reaction image can be found in a post on 4chan's /a/ board made on December 21st, 2008.[1]



In May 2009, the phrase continued to be used on various 4chan boards even without the associated image macro[3]. On July 29th, 2012, Redditor 4alex6 posted a derivative image macro to the /r/atheism subreddit, featuring the former Pope of the Catholic Church, Benedict XIV. In over 3 years, the post got over 1244 upvotes[2].


The original image macro has also inspired the creation of many other derivatives, featuring characters from such franchises as My Little Pony, DC Comics, Pokemon, and more.
