I heard once that it says somewhere in Chazal that there were certain things or people that HaShem "regretted" (had "charatah") in creating. Although I don't remember which examples were given or if a source was give. Does anyone know of such a statement in Chazal (or perhaps not just one but a few if there are?)

any time you find such language about God it is not meant to be taken literally.
the reason is that God knows ahead of time what will happen, so the whole concept of regret does not apply to Him.
