    Default The Great Roy Greenhilt & Everybody Else Facepalm Count

    Facepalms for all, running totals, locations, and whose fault it was:

    Roy - 20:

    1. Panel 11 of 22 (Belkar)
    2. Panel 8 of 80 (Elan).
    3. Panel 5 of 140 (Belkar)
    4. Panel 4 of 227 (Elan)
    5. Panel 6 of 231 (Elan)
    6. Panel 7 of 263 (Belkar, in absentia)
    7. Panel 6 of 291 (Eugene, ruled a facepalm by majority vote)
    8. Panel 11 of 320 (Transport Security Administration)
    9. Bonus Comic 323a - Durkon
    10. Panel 9 of 337 (Nale)
    11. Panel 12 of 410 (Hinjo)
    12. Panel 10 of 411 (Belkar)
    13. Panel 12 of 420 (Belkar)
    14. Panel 17 of 530 (Celia)
    15. Panel 23 of 531 (Celia and Haley)
    16. Panel 18 of 602 (Rich, for failing to give Durkon distinguishing characteristics)
    17. Bonus Comic 665a (Elan)
    18. Panel 5 of 676 (Belkar)
    19. Panel 6 of 698 (V)
    20. Panel 12 of 733 (Durkon)

    Haley - 9:

    1. Panel 7 of 428 (Roy and Hinjo)
    2. Panel 4 of 475 (Belkar)
    3. Panel 12 of 539 (Celia and Belkar)
    4. Panel 10 of 540 (Celia and Belkar)
    5. Panel 2 of 568 (Belkar)
    6. Panel 12 of 614 (Celia)
    7. Bonus Comic 642c (Crystal)
    8. Panel 6 of 649 (Durkon)
    9. Panel 7 of 694 (Girard)

    V - 1:

    1. Panel 3 of 596 (Elan)

    Hinjo - 2:

    1. Panel 18 of 413 (O-Chul/Whoever compiled the figurine assortment)
    2. Panel 5 of 572f (Elan)

    Xykon - 2:

    1. Panel 9 of 96 (MitD)
    2. Panel 9 of 196 (MitD)

    Redlcoak - 3:

    1. Panel 12 of 95 (Xykon)
    2. Panel 4 of 371 (MitD)
    3. Panel 3 of 648 (Elven insurgents)

    Nale -1:

    1. Panel 10 of 256 (Thog)

    Director Lee - 1:

    1. Panel 11 of 667 (Tiamat)


    Most Exasperating Characters, as measured by facepalms caused*:

    Belkar (10)
    Elan (6)
    Celia (5)
    Durkon and the MitD (3)
    Hinjo (2)
    Roy, Eugene, Nale, Haley, V, Crystal, Girard, O-Chul, Xykon, Elven Insurgents, Thog, Tiamat, Rich Burlew, the Transport Security Administration and Miniature Compilation Guy (1)

    Belkar is winning by a landslide, which should surprise no one.

    * Study not controlled for screentime or differing forms of expressing exasperation- V and Redcloak especially tend to throw up their hands and start screaming at people instead of facepalming, and Miko seems to induce stabbing rather than facepalming in her listeners, so the sample is a bit biased.

    Comics already searched:

    100-300 for Roy
    1-100, 300--672 for everyone

    (Although we may have missed a few!)


    To people adding to the count- please include the range of comics you looked through and for what, so we don't waste effort on redundant searches.

    (For instance, "Here's Xykon in Comic Y and I looked for everyone in comics X through Z" or "Here's Roy in Comic Q and I looked only for Roy in P through R" or "Here's V in Comic J, no search"

    There none in 101-200 unless you count panel 8 of 153

    Edit: When I cheeked it the thread on mentioned Roy's facepalms and those were the only one I was looking for so there could be facepalms by other characters in 101-200

    Panel 8 of 153 - may be a facepalm moment, but the gesture isn't there.

    From 201-300, I give you:

    291 isn't a facepalm, it's just Roy throwing up his hands in a way that happens to overlap with his face somewhat.

    I think 291 qualifies; looks to me as if one hand is face palming and the other is up in the air.

    The facepalms don't show up that often. After this is done can we count the amount of times roy's said "-sigh-"?

    So that's 7 + 1 in 291 that's debatable. Does he have more than Picard yet?

    No, with one hand he is facepalming and with the other he is just reaching back. It qualifies in my opinion.

    I'm sure there are plenty more. For example that was low for a paladin and you've got to be kidding me.

    Damn, you guys were actually serious about starting this...

    For other people's facepalms, already noted at TV Tropes are:

    Hinjo in #413.

    And Xykon doing two skull-phalanxes in #96 and #196 because of the MitD.

    Roy - 10

    Xykon - 2

    Hinjo - 1

    Xykon might be the most chilled out evil-overlord lich in the world, but even his bony face hits his bony palm somtimes...

    It looks to me more like he's putting a hand to his temple in an attempt to protect his brain from the mental images.

    And in 95 we see a RC one in the last panel.
    Also, if we're going to count every facepalm, we should probably change the thread title and update the first post.

    Please edit a compilation into the first post, I find this amusing! Would make a funny montage video.

    420/panel 12 ( belkar) for Roy.

    And two for Haley 428 panel 7(Hinjo and Roy or only Hinjo?) and 475 panel 4( Belkar)

    So now we have 15 for Roy and 6 for Haley.Also I checked 400-484 so now 400-672 is checked for everyone.

    When Rich first drew OotS I'm sure he never imagined anything like this. (I wonder if he's facepalmed about this yet)

    But, hey, personally? Veally Vundabar

    Also, Roy, #263 panel 7, thanks to Elan. Haven't had time to search any others.
