Do you think the paladin coup de grace is a pun of the Night's Watch from A Game of Thrones?

I'm certain it has nothing to do with Game of Thrones.
I fought SuperNiceDog, and SuperNiceDog won.

DQIX was released in the U.S. in July, 2010. A Game of Thrones, the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, was released in the U.S. in August, 1996. It is entirely possible that Knight Watch was a reference, though it is unlikely.

Isn't it just a pun of night watch? Like where people patrol a place at night.

The_Bones is correct. It IS a pun on "Night Watch", as in a nighttime patrol. (In fact, I believe that the nightly patrol of guards at some places is still officially the night watch.)

Every other use stems from the actual, real-world use. This includes the 2004 movie, the Game of Thrones wall patrol, and many others.

oh like that? I always thought the ”pun” was that the enemys get angry, and “watch“ the “knight“
.....doesn,t that make sense too?

Like any good pun, it has multiple meanings.
Knight Watch is a pun on the term, and draws the attention of the enemy, so it works both ways I should think.
