Unlike his main timeline counterpart, Xeno King Vegeta 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.
By the time of his return, he has gained armor akin to the classic Saiyan armor.
Xeno King Vegeta's personality is similar to his main counterpart's, though his brainwashing has made him incredibly subservient towards Mechikabura. He retains his elitist views, and his pride for his Saiyan heritage ultimately pushes him to betray Mechikabura.
In the manga, Xeno King Vegeta 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 seeks to travel back in time to defeat them.

He explains his intent to go back in time to eradicate both Frieza and Beerus and asks both Bardock and Paragus if they will join him.
Xeno Bardock refuses and places a partially destroyed mask on his face and powers up to Super Saiyan 3, surprising Xeno King Vegeta.

Wanting to finally get revenge Xeno Paragus attacks Xeno King Vegeta from behind, and Xeno King Vegeta is shocked a low-class warrior could damage him.

List of characters killed by Xeno King Vegeta
- All of his fights in the Dark Empire Saga have been against other Saiyans such as Xeno Turles (in the trailers and manga), Xeno Trunks and Xeno Vegeta (in the game), Dark Broly (in a trailer) and Xeno Bardock (in the game and manga). Broly was sentenced to death by King Vegeta as a baby only to escape death and Planet Vegeta's destruction. His fight with Xeno Bardock references their status as the fathers of Vegeta and Goku respectively. Additionally, Xeno Paragus attacks him in revenge due to their past history.
- During the Dark King Mechikabura Saga, in the game after acquiring Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Bardock calld a cease-fire between himself and Xeno King Vegeta by appealing to Xeno King Vegeta's Saiyan pride. This can be seen as another parallel to evolution of their son's rivalry (who started off adversaries before calling a truce to teaming up).
- Xeno King Vegeta's use of Mechikabura's dark power to increase his own strength and acquire a corrupt form is similar to Vegeta's use of Babidi's magic to acquire his Prince of Destruction form.
