Unlike his main timeline counterpart, King Vegeta: Xeno sports a red cloak with a hood that he keeps up and for a period of time also wore a time breaker mask and one hank of his hair is red. Without the mask, his eyes are shown to be black with red irises which may be a result of him controlling the power of darkness given from the mask.
King Vegeta: Xeno appears to hold a severe grudge over both Frieza and also Beerus. He let himself be controlled by the Dark Empire in order to gain power over the darkness and after having controlled it now seeks to travel back in time to defeat them.
