It has been a month already since the last time we saw an episode of Dragon Ball Heroes.

The main characters are still stuck on the Prison Planet as they have to fight a super strong Saiyan by the name of Cumber.

At the start of episode 5, Super Saiyan God Goku with the red hair is holding his own against Cumber, but his power alone is not strong enough to beat him.

Cumber is still way stronger as the planet starts to crumble around them as the chains keep breaking.

Cumber's power pretty much overwhelms the planet that even Fu's laboratory is messed up ruining all of his equipment.

As for Goku, Cumber's death ball makes him go back to his base form and he's looking very tired at this stage of the fight.

Cumber easily knocks out Goku and wants to go for the final kill. However, his death ball is reflected by a surprising looking duo. Another Goku and Vegeta come save the main Goku. Both of them are Super Saiyan 4!

The Super Saiyan 4 form only appeared in Dragon Ball GT and it's great to see this form again in Dragon Ball Heroes. Cumber loves the challenge of new fighters and accepts a new fight with the pair.

Despite having a two on one advantage, Cumber's power level is still above the Super Saiyan 4 form.

There's no choice but for the other Goku and Vegeta to use the Pottara earrings. This time, we get to see Super Saiyan 4 Vegito emerge!

The fight between Super Saiyan 4 Vegito and Cumber is pretty cool as the two fighters have the same power level. Will Vegito finally defeat the evil Saiyan?

Anyway, Cumber uses a death ball again while Vegito fights back using a Kamehameha wave. Super Saiyan 4 Vegito comes out on top as he manages to blast Cumber away with a huge blast!

Vegito breaks into two as Goku and Vegeta are two beings once again. This is when Fu comes in to survey the damage that has been done to the planet.

Sadly, episode 5 of Dragon Ball Heroes ends with a cliffhanger with Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta powering up to try and defeat Fu. Do they have the strength to defeat him?

Anyway, I thought this episode was pretty strong as it was cool to see the other Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan 4 forms.

Not to mention they were able to get Cumber away for a while. Now we have to wait for episode 6 in order to see if the good guys can beat Fu!
