- This article is about the Bardock that appears in Dragon Ball Heroes from another dimension. For the mainstream Bardock that was formerly controlled by Towa and Mira, see Bardock.
Xeno Bardock (バーダック：ゼノ Bādakku: Zeno) is a version of Bardock from another dimension.
Xeno Bardock wears a black shirt with long sleeves underneath a black and green new battle armor. Interestingly, he retains the red shinguards, red wristlets and the red headband wore by the main timeline Bardock. In some arts, Bardock's red headband's lace appears bigger than the regular headband.
Xeno Bardock is similar in personality to his main timeline counterpart. Like his son Xeno Goku and grandsons Xeno Gohan and Xeno Goten, as well as his great-granddaughter Xeno Pan he joins the Time Patrol and works under Chronoa.
However he is a bit of a lone wolf and has yet to be shown interacting with his son, grandchildren, or great granddaughter. However like his counterpart, Xeno Bardock is a loving husband to his wife Xeno Gine. Similar to his counterpart and Raditz, Xeno Bardock is a proud Saiyan warrior and due to his experience of being controlled by the Dark Empire, he takes issue with Xeno King Vegeta working with them as the Dark-Masked King, to the point of confronting him personally. As a result, he develops sort of a rivalry with Xeno King Vegeta similar to that of their respective sons, Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta.
Upon achieving Super Saiyan 4, Xeno Bardock attempts a cease-fire with Xeno King Vegeta by appealing to his Saiyan Pride indicating he does have some respect for the King of Saiyans and is simply opposed to him being an underling of Mechikabura and the Dark Empire. His respect for Xeno King Vegeta is similar to the respect Goku had developed for his Saiyan rival Vegeta.
Not much is known about this incarnation of Bardock other than he comes from another dimension. Although he shares some similarities with the main timeline Bardock, such as the red headband and the scar on his left cheek.

Forms and transformations
Main article: Great Ape
As a Saiyan who still has his tail, Xeno Bardock is able to transform into a Great Ape when absorbing enough blutz waves. It is unknown if he is able to control himself in this form as few Saiyans can. Presumably his level of control is similar to his counterpart Bardock who has rudimentary control over the form allowing him to focus on the enemy without attacking his allies.
During his Rebellion Fang technique the image of a Great Ape appears to represent his Saiyan potential). In Dragon Ball Heroes and World Mission it is just a head but in Dokkan Battle, an image of Great Ape Xeno Bardock's Great Ape form (based off his counterpart's Great Ape form) appears.
Xeno Bardock appears in his Great Ape form as the Masked Saiyan while under Towa's mind control. The Great Ape Masked Saiyan has the ability to focus on attacking the enemy without attacking his allies though it is unknown if this is due to him being under the effects of mind control.
Main article: Time Breaker Mind Control Masked Saiyan is the state taken on by Xeno Bardock after being taken control of by Towa. Xeno Bardock can also transform into a Great Ape while in this state.
Normally his Time Breaker Mask prevents the Great Ape transformation as it shields his his eyes from Blutz Waves (though like Sunglasses the mask still allows him to see) as they are absorbed primarily through the eyes, though only when it is fully intact as the Mask's Blutz Wave Shielding loses its effectiveness if the mask is broken. Once broken he can transform though the green part of the mask featuring the Time Breaker Infinity Symbol becomes embedded into his forehead keeping him under the effects of mind control similar to how Time Breaker Bardock controlled Great Ape Gohan in Dragon Ball Online.
After breaking free from Towa's control, he keeps his broken mask, and uses it when turning into Super Saiyan 3 during his fight with Xeno King Vegeta.
It is unknown if Towa modified his body like she did to Bardock when converting him into the Masked Saiyan in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
