I'm starting to feel that Phil Coulson had this feeling in Paradise Lost when Fitz tried to assure him that Grant Ward deserved to get his chest caved in by him (Coulson). The trope is because Coulson killed Ward in cold-blood out of payback for killing Rosalind and he's not proud of what he did as killing people in cold-blood out of payback is not what S.H.I.E.L.D. does. It's to the point that not only does Coulson's decision haunt him, he feels that Ward actually won and by killing Ward, Coulson inadvertently brought Hive to Earth with Ward as his vessel.

I'd like to add a particular quote from The Red Green Show to the quotes page, but it's Harold approving a decision Red made, and Red is ashamed of Harold's approval. The problem is that the trope descriptions speaks of villainous characters approving of heroic ones' dirty deeds, but Harold isn't villainous and Red's decision wasn't dirty, so I'm not sure it fits.
