* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''
** "The Cave of Two Lovers":
--->'''Katara:''' Why is your forehead all red?\\
'''Chong:''' Nobody react to what I'm about to tell you. [[LateToThePunchline I think that kid]] [[CaptainObvious might be the Avatar]].\\
'''Sokka:''' (''[[SurroundedByIdiots forehead smack]]'')
** In fact, [[OnlySaneMan Sokka]] does this a lot, leading many to speculate that doing it so many times resulted in the hardening of his forehead, which was why Ty Lee hurt her hand trying to strike it in "The Chase".
** Zuko does it when Iroh flirts with an unattractive woman in "The Drill".
** Also, Zuko's nose pinch in "The Western Air Temple", when he remembered how much of a dork he was when he began his search for the Avatar.
** Zuko appears to have a tendency to do this, [[http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/20500000/Bumi-vs-Toph-8-avatar-the-last-airbender-20541319-774-1024.jpg especially in the comics.]]
** [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/312/061.jpg Zuko]][[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/312/161.jpg does]] [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/312/258.jpg variations]] [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/312/317.jpg on]] [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/313/129.jpg this]] [[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/atla/314/266.jpg alot]], especially when he's exasperated with himself.
** Suki does it too in "The Boiling Rock" when Sokka tries (and fails) to cover-up the fact that they're hatching an escape plan. "The only thing we're hatching is... an egg?"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''
** This is Mako's reaction to Korra messing up in her first pro-bending match.
** The writers posted a picture of Toph doing this (with six fingers) after fans informed them that an animation error resulted in Toph having six fingers slipped through and got aired.
** Asami also does this when Bolin pays the wrong people to reverse the KangarooCourt Korra's parents are in.
* The stallholder in ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Homer Simpson sometimes combines this with his CatchPhrase "D'oh!", though it's when ''he'' does something stupid.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** Stan is a big fan of the "pinching the bridge of one's nose" type. It makes sense, as, thanks to {{Flanderization}}, he has a LizLemonJob. Often accompanied by a muttered "Oh goddamnit..." Apparently this is because series co-creator Trey Parker (on whom Stan is based) does this a lot in RealLife.
** In one episode, we see his mother doing it along side with him, implying that he picked it up from her. Given to who she's married to, that may, very well, be the case.
** Cartman does this in the third part of the Black Friday trilogy when Princess Kenny breaks up a blockade of ships trying to keep a shipment of PlayStation 4s out of America just by being cute.
* Space Ghost does it a lot on his talk show, ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': This is the preferred response to Buzz Killington.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''
** In ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgiNbuFwORw Garage Kids]]'', the short pilot for the series, Ulrich is basically TheVoiceless, but he does a great facepalm when confronted with Odd's antics.
** In the series itself, Odd is the resident facepalmer.
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Superman does not need [[http://worldsfinestonline.com/WF/jlu/backstage/funkeepers/27.jpg this crap right now]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Undergrads}}'' features a collective facepalm at a mixer in the first episode.
* Carl from ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' will find himself many times engaging in this act, especially as a result of the actions of Master Shake.
* Helga from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' does this in response to the antics of her alcoholic mother.
* Numbuh Five and Numbuh One of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' are fond of doing this. Especially Numbuh One -- fitting, as he's essentially a kid version of Picard.
* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' has [[DumbBlonde the title character]] doing this after Beezy once again [[SpringtimeForHitler fails to fail]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}''
** Sadlygrove often inspires this to his friends -- usually along with calling him a "[[CatchPhrase Iop brain]]". Eva goes for the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Wakfu_Facepalm_9735.jpg two-handed facepalm]] in episode 19 when Grovy gets himself into a duel with Prince Armand.
** Jay the Iop also spurs Kriss Krass to facepalm during the Bontarian Gobbowl match.
** Rushu facepalms when he thinks Anathar has just crushed his precious Eliatrope prisoner.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', Batman (Terry [=McGinnis=], remember) performs the motion after his geeky schoolmate Howard tells his obsessive-compulsive robot girlfriend they could be just friends.
-->'''Howard:''' Wrong thing to say?\\
'''Batman:''' Is it ''ever'' the right thing to say?
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has Veronica Vreeland attending the opera with Penguin. Imagine her reaction when the Penguin starts singing along.
* Toa Tahu does this in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Mask of Light'' during a Kohlii match after Jaller dives right out of the way rather than blocking the oncoming Kohlii ball. Amusingly, shortly after, Jaller hits himself in the head with his Kohlii stick. It's an incredibly dramatic double-facepalm.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''
** Squidward does this occasionally, and will add to it by sliding his tentacle slowly off his face, causing his face to sag and then spring back into shape.
** Plankton does this after telling [=SpongeBob=] to be more assertive and [=SpongeBob=] misunderstands.
* Mac Mange, the Metallikat of ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'', has a ''metal'' face palm in "A Bright and Shiny Future" when his wife (with whom he co-ruled the city in a BadFuture) kept insisting that their robot servants were hers. Complete with metal clang.
* Frequently used by Nesmith of ''WesternAnimation/PlanetSheen'' in regards to something the title character has said. And [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius if you're familiar with Sheen at all]], you can understand why.
* Kiva's reaction in ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' to a fair number of events, such as Coop and Jamie letting out all the imprisoned aliens in "Breakout".
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Twilight Sparkle's standard response to several of the more bizarre events is to Face''hoof''.
** The other Ponies get in on it too, with Rainbow Dash doing a ''Double'' Facehoof at times.
*** Behold fanart of a ''quadruple'' [[http://bobmortar.deviantart.com/art/Rainbow-Dash-Quadruple-Facehoof-vector-287398077 facehoof]].
** Angel Bunny does a facepaw whenever he finds Fluttershy frustrating.
** One of the Diamond Dogs facepaws when Rarity is aggravating him.
** Spike faceclaws from time to time.
** For the background ponies, this seems to be Bon-Bon's default reaction to Lyra's antics when portrayed by the fandom. [[ElegantClassicalMusician Octavia]] and [[TheRockStar Vinyl Scratch]] get in on it whenever the other tries to listen to their preferred music genre. In fact, the only real common pairing of ponies that doesn't have a facehoof specializer (regularly, at least) is Derpy and Doctor Whooves. Probably because they both have their antics at the same time.
* Doktor Frogg does this quite a lot in ''WesternAnimation/LeagueOfSuperEvil'' when Voltar comes up with ridiculous and childish "evil" schemes. This is actually quite a talent, considering he doesn't actually have hands....
* From ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', when they break Jonny's house:
-->'''Edd:''' ImMelting, It's become a sauna in here!\\
'''Eddy:''' Sauna?! That's it! A SPA! Why fix THINGS, when we can fix PEOPLE?!\\
'''Edd:''' (''facepalms'')
* Vince from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' often uses this trope.
* Stanley does this a few times in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'' comics. Surprisingly, his easily-exasperated partner Henry only does this ''once'' (in episode 9 of the cartoon).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "Devil in the Deep":
-->'''Alice Johnson:''' This will make for an interesting story. Especially the part where Dr. Venkman forgets the ghost traps.\\
'''Peter Venkman:''' My mother reads ''Celebrity''! (''cue facepalm'')
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'''s "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love", Bender does this to Amy after she releases a crazed Zoidberg... for the 8th time.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'''s Prowl, in the first episode, faceservos to Optimus' speech.
* A common reaction to the antics of the Warner siblings in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', especially from Dr Scratchansniff.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Mike's New Car]]''. Mike facepalms himself after the windshield wipers went off when he put his seatbelt on.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', this is WesternAnimation/BugsBunny's response to Porky Pig always falling for upsells. In fact, he does this three times before realizing his forehead's starting to bruise. After Porky had refused insurance and gets his car wrecked, Bugs is about to facepalm again until he stops halfway... [[DopeSlap and slaps Porky upside the head afterward.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', ''Duck, Rabbit, Duck!'' Elmer goes gunning for Bugs, and blasts a snowman-rabbit to pieces. Bugs [[ParasolParachute floats down]] in a poor-quality angel costume, and Fudd falls for it. Cue angry, exasperated facepalm from Daffy.
* The eponymous turtle has done this at a least a couple of times in the various animated incarnations of ''Literature/{{Franklin}}''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'', Donatello facepalms when Michelangelo remarks on ''what a coincidence it is'' that a van has crashed into the Kraang's lair whilst the Turtles are sneaking in. Unfortunatley, Donny is wearing spiked climbing-kncukles at the time. Ouch!
* Facewing by Connie Crane in "I'll Be Your Best Friend" on ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter'' when her husband falls into the lake after craning to get a look at Bucky Spacebeaver's showboat; Flick later on in the same story after Munchy brings Peanut a chocolate-and-tuna flavored cake and he realizes he's just been outclassed.
* At the end of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Is There a Doctor in the House?", D.W. does this when [[HereWeGoAgain Arthur starts sneezing]].
* In the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nKKbXuilg4#t=3m30s Wacky Races Forever]]'' pilot, Muttley slaps himself as his partner [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat declares his intent to cheat, while they were sitting 3 feet in front of the finish line]].
* Done several times in ''WesternAnimation/MrBogus'':
** Ratty does this at the end of the first act of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS1E1MeetMrBogus Meet Mr. Bogus]]", in response to Bogus trimming the hedges in record time.
** Tommy does this in the second act of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS1E9HipsterTripster Hipster Tripster]]", after learning that Bogus was responsible for letting the monkeys loose in the zoo.
** Bogus does this in the first act of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS2E1ComputerIntruder Computer Intruder]]", after he loses the space game that he was playing on Tommy's computer.
** Near the end of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS3E4KungFuCampout Kung Fu Campout]]", Bogus actually does this when Mrs. Anybody takes away the cake before he and Brattus could take the first bite.
** Tommy does this with his baseball mitt in the first act of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS3E16BaseballBogus Baseball Bogus]]", in response to Mr. Anybody's embarrassing cheer routine.
* Peppermint Patty does this at the end of ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown]]'' when Marcie eats her Easter egg ''[[EpicFail without taking the shell off]]''. This is after Marcie asked for egg-eating instructions and got them. "Tastes terrible, Sir."
* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' Chase Young uses one of the magical Shen Gong Wu objects to talk to animals and tell an army of monkeys to obey the every command of Jack Spicer. He facepalms when Jack tests the monkeys' loyalty by having them all do the robot dance.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerPuffGirls'' episode "Meet the Beat-alls", Princess does this in response to Mojo Jojo's lame pun
-->'''Princess:''' So tell us again why we're only stealing toilet paper, light bulbs, milk, flour, and eggs.\\
'''Mojo:''' Well, Moko's idea is that stealing items that are all white isn't against the law. So it's okay to take them.\\
'''Princess:''' Huh?\\
'''Mojo:''' It's alright, 'cause they're all white!
