This is a fictional event that appeared in Nobunaga's Ambition. After Ieyasu declared independence from the Imagawa, Ieyasu went to Owari to talk with Nobunaga Oda.

While talking with Ieyasu, Ieyasu asked Nobunaga to join forces. Nobunaga refused and signaled Katsuie to kill Ieyasu. Ieyasu managed to escape from Kiyosu Castle and outside waiting for him was his retainer Hanzo Hattori. Hanzo told Ieyasu to escape while Hanzo fight's the Oda to buy Ieyasu some time.
