So did Alexander the Great's, but he's not considered evil.
Being handsome by western standards, he was an egomanaical mass murdererlike the rest.

But those smaller states endured for centuries and preserved a lot of what the Mongol Empire had initiated. Collectively, they certainly lasted longer than most of the remnants of Alexander's empire.
Outside of their original territory maybe you can make a case for the Golden Horde and it's successor states but everywhere else mongolian culture was swallowed up by assimilation. It's not like Crim was a center of culture during the tartar period.
