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 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.
Dragon Ball Heroes
Dark Empire Saga
Main article: Dark Empire Saga
- Advent of Mechikabura Saga
Xeno King Vegeta was brought back by Mechikabura in order to act as his servant.
In the manga, the Dark-Masked King joins Mechikabura and his comrade Demon God Salsa to a visit to the Tree of Might where they confront Xeno Turles who has the Four-Star Dark Dragon Ball merged in his chest. The Dark-Masked King attacks Turles and quickly knocks him flying into the Tree behind him. He returns to his master's side after Mechikabura recovers the ball from Turles.
- Mechikabura Revival Saga
Sometime after he follows Xeno Paragus after he is sent through a wormhole with the intent to assassinate him. There he confronts Xeno Bardock, the Dark-Masked King powers up further, shattering his mask and removing his cloak to reveal himself as King Vegeta.
When Bardock chastises him for being mind controlled by the Dark Empire, he tells him that he allowed it to happen so he could gain power over it and that he has now gained control over the darkness. 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. While fighting Xeno Bardock, Xeno King Vegeta is surprised to find he's having this much fun fighting a low-class warrior. 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. When Xeno Bardock fires a powerful blast towards Xeno King Vegeta, he counters it which results in a powerful explosion and the victor of the battle being unknown.
In the manga, when he fights Xeno Turles (Four-Star Dark Dragon Ball merged) he is able to quickly send him flying backward. After the battle Mechikabura realizes that the initial power of the Dark-Masked King is not that good and he needs to increase the amount of magical power in the Dark-Masked King.
Xeno King Vegeta easily takes down base Xeno Bardock and Xeno Paragus and shrugs off a sneak attack from Xeno Paragus, killing him afterwards. Xeno King Vegeta believes that with this power he will be able to travel back to the genocide of the Saiyans and wipe out both Frieza and Beerus. When Xeno Bardock becomes the Masked Saiyan once more and becomes Super Saiyan 3 he proves to be able to battle Xeno King Vegeta.
Xeno King Vegeta is able to defeat Super Saiyan 3 Xeno Bardock, though is weakened enough that he is taken out by a sneak attack from Xeno Paragus.
