|Counterpart(s)||Graveyard Boy (Ocarina of Time)|
The Bombers Secret Society of Justice is a gang of six boys who strive to do good in their home town of Clock Town in Majora's Mask. Jim, their leader, wears a red bandanna, whereas the hideout guard wears a yellow bandanna and the rest wear blue ones. They are good friends with the astronomer in the Astral Observatory; Link needs to befriend the gang in order to get to the observatory.
Prior to the events of Majora's Mask, the Bomber Gang befriended the Skull Kid, but later cast him out due to his evil motives. As a result, they only allow humans to join their gang, provided that they can pass the test. Because of their previous affiliation with the Skull Kid, they also recognize Tatl and ask Link why is she with him, but only if the young hero is in Zora or Goron form.
After popping the balloon Jim is firing at in North Clock Town, Link is challenged to a game of hide & seek. The five Bombers can each be found during this game in the area of Clock Town they're normally located, save for one — while he's normally found in West Clock Town, he will be found in North Clock Town during the game of hide & seek. If he can find and catch all five Bombers participating in the challenge within the time limit, he will be awarded with a Bombers' membership (assuming he is in human form). This membership comes with the secret passcode to the Bombers' hideout and the Bombers' Notebook. The passcode is different in each game file, regardless of which order they are caught in. There is a total of one hundred and twenty possible combinations for the passcode.
Another way to get the Bomber's Notebook is to learn the passcode, rewind to the first day, go into their HQ, come back out, and speak with Jim.
