Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Man from the Bomb Shop owns and operates the Bombchu Shop in Hyrule Castle Town when Link is a child. The store is only opened at night, and has a limited quantity. The Bombchus are quite expensive, and the store has no prominent advertising, suggesting questionable legality. After Link awakens from his seven year slumber in the Sacred Realm, the Bombchu Shop is destroyed along with the rest of Hyrule Castle Town. Because of this, the man is never seen again for the remainder of the game. He does, however, appear in the end credits at the party at Lon Lon Ranch.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

The Man from the Bomb Shop owns the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town along with his mother. They sell Bombs, Bombchus and Bomb Bags. If Link stops Sakon from stealing the mother's belongings in North Clock Town on the night of the First Day, the Bomb Shop starts selling a bigger Bomb Bag.

The man is pleasant, helpful and polite towards his customers and is always casually tossing an unlit bomb in his hand while manning the store. He is also rather childish and affectionate towards his mother, referring to her as "mommy". He appears to be rather ambitious, intelligent and scientifically oriented, as in the corner of the shop are several notes and diagrams about a bomb-propelled flight to the Moon; however, it is unknown whether he was the actual author. Notably, he appears to have already constructed a rocket, which dominates the left side of his shop. It is unknown as to what stage the rocket has been completed or tested.
