In modern times, there are three ninjas whose fame shines brighter than the fame of all the rest of the ninjas put together. They are the ones who star in video games, anime, live action movies and television shows. The most famous ninja is either Hattori Hanzo or Ishikawa Goemon. The most famous kunoichi (female ninja) is Mochizuki Chiyome. Of these three it is almost impossible to determine who is the most famous of all, so we make no attempt.
