|Noctis Lucis Caelum|
Ray Chase (English)/Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese)
Speed (Japanese) / Assassin (English)
Heir apparent to the Lucian throne, Noctis’ trials begin when he sets forth from the crown city in order to wed the Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret. In combat, he wields spectral weapons that he forges from thin air—a power possessed by those of his royal line.
Noctis appears as a young adult with fair skin, messy black hair and eyes. Compared to the entire cast, he sticks out like a sore thumb with his choice of clothing, which comes off across as less fantasy-looking and more modern day. Consisting of an entirely black ensemble is an open jacket, shirt, long-legged shorts, boots and a motorcycle glovelet on his left arm.

- Royal Raiment
As an 'Assassin, Noctis relies on an aggressive, fast-paced fighting style. While he uses multiple weapons like Firion and Bartz, he sets himself with his more straighforward approach and ability to fight well on both air and ground as opposed to having gimmicks or situational-based ability. His HP attacks give him extended melee range thanks to his Warp ability, allowing him to surprise enemies by teleporting to his thrown weapons.
- Warp: When activated, Noctis will warp in a straight line ahead of him from afar. Like Kuja's EX Skill, this can be stacked up thrice, but what makes it unique is that he can perform this skill in quick succession based on how many have been stored, and can follow it up with any attack immediately after the warp.
- Noctis' appearance dates back as early as Dissidia 012 as a password-exclusive icon, representing Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which would later evolve into Final Fantasy XV.
- Noctis also will make an appearance in the fighting game Tekken 7, as a guest character.
