Genghis Khan was the founder and the emperor of the Mongol Empire. Within the Uncharted series, Khan appears as a single-player skin in the single-player mode of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, as well as a villain skin in multiplayer mode of the game and its sequel, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
Genghis Khan is an anthropomorphic skeleton, who wears a special piece of headgear, along with a set of bronze shoulder-pads and ragged cloth.
In Uncharted 2, his skin lacks voice. However, in Uncharted 3, he shares the same voice as Lieutenant Draza.
Events of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- "Genghis Khan, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot... They were all great men. But do you know why they prevailed? [...] Because they had the will to do what other men would not."
- — Zoran Lazarević
Genghis Khan is mentioned twice during the events of Among Thieves; in his first meeting with Nathan Drake during Chapter 16, Karl Schäfer uses Khan as an example for one of the few powerful nation leaders to have obtained only a fragment of the Cintamani Stone, alongside fellow conqueror Tamerlane.
He is then briefly mentioned again in Chapter 24, with Zoran Lazarević uses him as an example of a 'great man' who managed to prevail to do him having the will to kill and ignore compassion and mercy.
Players are required to complete Uncharted 2 on the "Crushing" difficulty level in order to unlock the skin; he will be available for free once the task is completed.
In Uncharted 2, players are required to complete the game on "Crushing" in order to unlock Khan for purchase. Once the task is completed, Khan will be available for $1,500,000, as a Villain skin.

- Genghis Khan is one of five anthropomorphic skeleton skins in Uncharted 2 multiplayer (the others being Marco Polo, Skelzor, Glowzor and Platzor).
- Due to him being having no voice in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Genghis Khan is a good choice for stealth.
- Along with the other skeletons, his bones make a slight clanking noise as they move.
