The Royal Arms are special weapons that only Noctis can wield that are relics of ancient kings of Lucis. There's a total of thirteen you can acquire throughout the game, although you will get seven of them during the main story. That means the other six Royal Arms are completely optional and most of those will require you to trek through dungeons in order to reach them.
