|“This is our home, son. You might have once turned your back upon it, but I never will.”|
|— Khanjikhan to his son, "Enkrypted"|
At an unknown point in time, Khanjikhan married an unnamed woman and became the Djinn King, and inherited the Djinn Blade as a result. Afterward, he had a son, Nadakhan. However, when Nadakhan left Djinjago to explore Ninjago and became a pirate, Khanjikhan disowned his son, no longer welcoming him back in his home realm.
Upon his son's return to Djinjago alongside the Sky Pirates, Khanjikjan noted the poetic fittingness of his coincidental arrival as the realm began to collapse. Upon being asked why the realm was collapsing, he explained that, due to the Preeminent's death, and because Djinjago was the Cursed Realm's sister realm, this resulted in the collapse of their home. He then proceeded to give the Djinn Blade to his son, officially making him the Djinn King and telling him to avenge the Djinn, and stayed behind as the realm collapsed, presumably dying as a result.
As a result of Jay's wish erasing the events of the season, Khanjikhan would never give the Djinn Blade to his son in the first place, resulting in the artifact's destruction.
As Khanjikhan was a legendary figure and a notable individual in djinn history, a statue of him somehow ended up in Borg Tower, and various statues were created by his son in New Djinjago before the timeline was reversed.
- 75. "The Mask of Deception" (statue)
- His appearance is similar to his son's, but he appears to have a long white beard strongly resembling Wu's. This beard style is called a Fu Manchu. His torso has different printing, his extra torso resembles Kozu's, and his eyebrows are also similar to Wu's.
- Khanjikhan is the only deceased Djinn King whose soul didn't go into the Djinn Blade upon his death. However, as a result of both the artifact and Djinjago's destruction, Khanjikhan's soul now rests in the Departed Realm along with every other Djinn King besides Nadakhan.
- He has a CGI render of his minifigure, despite not having one.
- The existence of his statue in Borg Tower is not a plot hole, but rather, it is simply an example of humans having a statue of a legendary being in the same way people in the real world may have a statue of a mythical creature.
- He is simply called "Djinn King" in the credits and on the website.
- His belt uses the king crown symbol from LEGO's Castle (2007) theme.
- He uses the hair piece of Aurra Sing from LEGO Star Wars.
