Examples of FacePalm from AnimeAndManga media category.
----
* Germany of ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has done this on more than one occasion, usually because of something Italy has done.



* ''Manga/BlackButler'': Ciel in season 2 episode 3, when Sebastian has a moment of adoration over stray kitties and ignores the task at hand to do so.



* ''Lightnovel/ACertainScientificRailgun'':
** Early on, Shirai Kuroko, a young girl law-enforcer, crouches and buries her face in her hands, appalled at the sight of her good acquaintance (later properly introduced as the series' lead) high-kicking a vending machine to make it cough up a free canned drink right in front of her. No, not because of all the law things and how the two were discussing those right up to that moment. It's just that the resulting upskirt shot provokes a complaint from Kuroko how unrefined, unladylike the other girl's taste in underwear is.
** Kuroko does the headdesk variation, when the usually-straightforward, no-nonsense titular character ([[OneeSama who is also her crush]]) lures the gangmembers with innocent charm. The charm works though. Kuroko hits her head against hard objects hard enough to shake them, and she does it often enough to become a RunningGag. It's a wonder she doesn't suffer from any injuries.
