Even today there are many myths and legends about him, such as the failed assassination attempt on Toyotomi Hideyoshi, after which he was convicted, and executed with his fellows by throwing into heated oil. H is said to have tried to save his son by holding him out of the boiler above his head.

Ishikawa Goemon was a semi-legendary Japanese outlaw hero who stole gold and valuables and gave them to the poor. Goemon is notable for being boiled alive along with his son in public after a failed assassination attempt on the civil war-era warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi. His legend continues to live on, often with greatly exaggerated ninja skills, in contemporary Japanese popular culture.
