The Wizard Who Did It
If A Wizard Did It, blame this guy.
Hand Wave plotholes, inconsistencies and anachronisms with one simple statement: "A Wizard Did It." Well, SOME works take this a step further, by introducing you to the exact wizard behind it. The Wizard that Did It, if you will. Unmarked spoilers beyond, since this is generally a plot twist, with the exception of the trope namer.
Examples:Anime and Manga Film
- From The Matrix, the Architect is the specific program that created the Matrix, as well as the One, the human resistance, and all of the other programs, including the Oracle.
- Tzeentch is behind everything, even his own failures.
- The presence of Kaiju-sized animals in the Mystara setting is explained, in their monster descriptions, with the claim that they were created by the wizard Gargantua.
- Team Fortress 2 introduced periphery character Merasmus (a centuries-old wizard who is the Soldier's roommate) just so there can be a Wizard to explain anything in The Verse that doesn't already have a wacky explanation.
- From the When They Cry franchise, the respective Wizards that Did It prove to be Hanyuu and Bernkastel.
