Identical to the method for April's Loft, Evade, & Turtle Soup:

Start a local (single-player) game with the account earning the achievement, which I will refer to as primary. Using a second controller, join the game with a guest account which I will refer to as secondary.

Immediately let the primary account die. Having only one turtle present will make it easier to fight your way up to Krang & is part of this sure-fire method for getting the achievement. Fight through the game with the secondary controller up to General Traag. Before killing Traag, re-spawn the primary account as the same turtle chosen at the start of the game. Kill Traag, and when Krang enters immediately let him kill the primary account. Using the secondary account, attack the boss until he is one or two hits away from dying. Re-spawn the primary account & use either controller to finish killing the boss.

As long as the primary account is present when going into the area in question (in this case Krang's robot), dies immediately, rejoins as the same turtle when the boss is near-death, and only gets hit once before the boss dies, the achievement will unlock. The damage taken when dying upon entry is not registered.

UPDATE 01/01/2011: My playthrough counted Krang taking 52 hits to kill. Other reports place the number at 54. Traag (the boss before Krang) takes 38-40 hits to kill.
