* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'': Sheriff Root frequently does this in reaction to his son Arseface.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'' Linda does this when [[spoiler:Clark reveals that he figured out her "Krypton never existed" story (which she had been coaxed into feed him. Long story) was a lie]].
** In ''Superman #713'', Franchise/{{Superman}} tells ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' and ''Comicbook/{{Superboy}}'' that he has been wondering whether there must be a Superman... and he realized the answer is "No". And then he takes off his costume.

* ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}} has done this towards Comicbook/{{Deadpool}}, such as when Wade pays him via ATM.
* The psychiatrist in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' [[http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x250/Fyrmer/watchmen_doctor_facepalm.jpg facepalms]] after a session with Rorschach.
* In ''[[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic Universe]]'', Rouge [[LamePunReaction does this]] after Shadow ([[TheComicallySerious yes, that Shadow]]) cracks a pun.
* [[Franchise/StarWars Master Yoda]] on the cover of ''[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Revenge_of_the_Clone_Menace.jpg Tag & Bink: Revenge of the Clone Menace]]''.
* Brother Warth, a typically pacifistic member of the Blue Lantern Corps, facepalms in an issue of ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' when people get into a fight despite his efforts.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' prequel comic ''ComicBook/WelcomeToTheJungle'', Lt. Murphy does this after Dresden tells her something uselessly mystic and vague about the case. In the RPG rulebook, this panel is used with the [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis side comment by Dresden]]: "I make her do this way too much."
* An issue of ''SWORD'', an ''X-Men'' spin-off, features a group of giant rock aliens seeking to avenge the deaths of four noble creatures whom humans had decapitated and put on display. At Mount Rushmore. Once they learn the nature of the error, this trope occurs.
* Papa Smurf does this a few times in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' comic book story "Bathing Smurfs".
* ''ComicBook/PS238'': Miss Kyle, a teacher at the eponymous SuperheroSchool, facepalms frequently. [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/ps238/comics/index.php?date=2007-01-23 Like when Zodon]] (a {{jerkass}} super-genius in a hoverchair) is supposed to [[BadBadActing pretend that a school bully's punch hurt]], as part of TheMasquerade.
* ComicBook/{{MODOK}}'s body is a face. When he facepalms, [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6rFxhJAiUD0/UF5gNasVfMI/AAAAAAAAB6A/4TpVwEDpdaM/s1600/Modok+Poster.jpg you know you've failed.]]
* Professor Scruples from ''ComicBook/BazookaJules'' does a face palm when he has to explain to Julie and Neil in [[LaymansTerms even simpler terms than he's using]] one of julie's abilities.
* ''ComicBook/TheSavageDragon'' did this when he realized why bar patrons fled from terror when he told them that [[AccidentalInnuendo he was looking for Amanda Love]].
* Kyle Rayner did this when Guy Gardner had the audacity to try {{Mooning}} Franchise/{{Batman}}.
* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': Nemesis slaps his forehead during Torquemada's trial when the latter brings in Nemesis's great uncle Baal as a witness to "prove" that all aliens are evil and [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide he was right to wage war on them]]. Baal is an enthusiastic TortureTechnician of human beings (Nemesis had banished him for this), so this doesn't paint them in a very good light.
