Trivia... Didn't this used to refer to possible references to Genghis Khan, Iron Chef, and such shows?

References must be beyond reasonable doubt. Anything "possible," "probable," "may be," or "likely," or out-of-game trivia without citation, has no place on this wiki. The reason being, the game is drowning in references, and if left unchecked we've found that trivia can actually dominate the in-game information in articles. -- WarBlade (talk) 23:39, July 15, 2013 (UTC)
It seems fairly obvious that this IS a direct reference to Genghis Khan. He's the only Khan that comes immediately to mind at the mention of the word. Aside from Khan Noonian Singh

If you want to treat such requirements as "ridiculous" then you'd best find another wiki to contribute to. Borderlands quickly established itself as being so jam packed with references that some people felt the need to point out flimsy resemblances, and had we left those to go unchecked we'd have articles dominated by subjective associations.
