Masked Saiyans in Dragon Ball Heroes: One of the most appealing things about Dragon Ball Heroes is that.
They take older characters that were irrelevant and they bring them back into the spotlight with some kind of Evil power upgrade. This is some kind of newer power boost to make them become relevant again.
If have you played Xenoverse 2, you are familiar with the fact that Mira and Towa, specifically Towa. Her dark Makai magic that can make somebody not only brainwashed to be her servant but also give them a power boost sort of like what Babidi did in Dragon Ball Z. Also, in the Dragon Ball Heroes video game, she has that ability.
However, there are other ways of brainwashing / giving somebody a ridiculous power upgrade. The two that have come up most recently and arguably the two strongest artifacts that are exclusive to Dragon Ball Heroes Masked Saiyans.
That’s the Dark Dragon Balls, and the Demonic mask, otherwise known as the time breaker Masked Saiyans.
Now, the oldest and obviously most well-known of the evil Masked Saiyans is the original mass. This, of course, time breaker Bardock and most of you are probably familiar with him from Xenoverse 2.
I did a post on time breaker Bardock like a couple of days ago when the game was coming out going into his backstory.
Bardock was the first one where Dragon Ball Heroes decide to bring him back into prominence as a villain.
He was aligned with Mira and Towa who went back in time rescue Bardock like before he was going to die. Then brainwashed him with the tiebreaker mass to make him into time breaker Bardock.
The Masked Saiyans in Dragon Ball Heroes Game
Whether you’re playing Xenoverse 2 or Dragon Ball Heroes. The storylines do mirror each other and the outcome is similar too because at the end of the day Bardock does eventually turn on Mirra.
He kind of goes his own way in the Dragon Ball Heroes version of the story. His mask cracks and the battle he turns on Mira and unveils that he can actually achieve Super Masked Saiyan 3.
That kind of power scaling and ridiculous power jumps is kind of a crazy in Dragon Ball Heroes. Also, it makes it a lot of fun, but also very very headache-inducing.
Even trying to make sense of it all because it really makes no sense that Bardock who was a low-level Soldier have that power.
You must understand that nothing really makes a lot of sense if you try to power scale in Dragon Ball Heroes.
Time breaker Bardock in his base form was able to one-shot Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta. Base form time breaker Bardock defeated Gogeta from dragon ball GT Who is thought to be Invincible in GT, I want you to think about what I just said.
One thing I will say is for Simplicity sake for this post, I’ll be pulling from different sources that Heroes video game that Heroes manga things like that.
So it’s kind of explain this whole thing, so while time breaker Bardock was the first of these characters.
He certainly would not be the last with the idea being that members of the time Breakers who are actually called the dark Empire or the dark Makai Army.
Heroes use these masks that are a combination of technology and Magic evil magic, of course, to put it on people and make them their slaves.
Also, give them this humongous boost in power that many of these characters could never even hope to achieve on their own.
Masked Saiyans Power Boost
Now the main villain of the dark Empire Arc in Dragon Ball Heroes is a character by the name of Budda who was conjured up by Towa and her Dark Energy.
He is the main villain of this story.
Now the first mass and was, of course, the father of Goku. Bardock being brought back into prominence. The creators of Dragon Ball Heroes probably figured let’s do the same thing with Vegeta’s father. That’s how we get what is referred to as time breaker King Vegeta or Zano King Vegeta.
Now, one thing I will say before I get into the Zeno King Vegeta storyline which I think is pretty awesome. I want to say that for a very brief time and if you want specifics and Dragon Ball Heroes God Mission 9.
There was a time breaker Vegeta that appeared very briefly and God Mission 9 and he was under the control of Mira. He had a big Power Up and once you defeat him he goes back to being regular time Patrol.
There isn’t much story here to talk about it’s just a mission that you do and that’s what King Vegeta is about though. Zeno King Vegeta got a whole story for himself.
Those of you who watched Dragon Ball Z, there’s an anime-only seen in Dragon Ball Z where we see the demise of King Vegeta.
He goes in to begin his Mutiny against Frieza and Frieza in his first form remember that in his first form punched King Vegeta one time with an uppercut and send him to his grave.
He one shot and killed King Vegeta that’s not the Zeno King Vegeta by a long shot. Remember the Zeno characters in Dragon Ball Heroes are from a different timeline.
It’s not the same guy but remembers they do share similar backstories which are why is there Zeno Paragus hate Zeno King King Vegeta because just like in Dragon Ball Z movie 8.
The first Broly movie Zeno King Vegeta kick him and brought it to the curb. Same thing here is the primary servant of MechiaBuda. So initially King Vegeta was referred to as the Dark Mask King.
Alongside Sauza are the left and right hand of MchiaBuda and their mission is to gather up the dark dragon balls. In the Video game, he makes short work of Turles then later on King Vegeta’s Zeno the masked King Masked Saiyans.
Mask Broly Vs King Vegeta
Come fronts what is referred to as Super Saiyan 4 dark Broly which you have to sit down for this one. Super Saiyan 4 Broly with an upgrade from both with the dark dragon ball and the Demonic mask. I told you guys Heroes was weird, do just try to follow me on this one.
They have a big fight and King Vegeta who has balls of steel and takes them on one on one. Not even being able to transform into Super Saiyan 1 this is his base form for this guy. So you would think okay, that’s cool are they going to do Bardock vs. King Vegeta yes they did.
Bardock Zeno battle King Vegeta and during this fight, King Vegeta’s Mass actually broke off and it was finally revealed that he was indeed Zano King Vegeta.
During this battle though King Vegeta is still retaining all that power forcing Bardock to power up the Super Saiyan 3.
King Vegeta still does not go down and the way it is set up in the video game, as well as all of this, is going on while Zeno Paragus.
That’s right Broly’s father comes in and actually hurts him and that’s left sore of left a cliffhanger in the game. The Dragon Ball Heroes manga gives a much different outcome in an actual resolution. So in the Dragon Ball Heroes manga, King Vegeta’s Zeno beats Bardock and Paragus and kills Paragon.
Essentially what happens after this is after beating all the other Masked Saiyans. What he wants to do this is crazy, he wants to go back in time to before Frieza kill the Saiyans and wiped out Planet Vegeta and Destroy Frieza and Beerus.
I’m not kidding I told you this guy had a huge sack you got to have balls of stone to want to face off against The Gods destruction.
