The intruding boss is Kula, as the achievement picture suggests. To make Kula appear, you must get through stage 1-3 without dying, and then finish the boss off with either a special move or a bomb. I'm going to suggest Kyo for this, purely because he is far superior to all the other characters. If playing on practice difficulty, getting to the boss without dying shouldn't be to difficult, just remember a taunt can clear all the bullets on screen if the background isn't already red, and the bombs are useful, although I suggest keeping at least 2 bombs for the boss, to make sure you don't die against them. As for fighting Kula, she is much more difficult than the 8 regular bosses that appear in stages 1-1 to 1-5. It doesn't matter if you die against Kula, you can continue in the fight. Use bombs and taunts to clear the bullets when she uses the attack where she dashes all over the screen and constantly fire when she summons snowmen. Considering the fact you can continue while fighting her, if you make her appear, this should be easy to get. She will appear after the point totaling after defeating stage 1-3's boss, so don't be alarmed if it leaves the level before she appears. I was not the first to discover this, but I have been asked to not give credit to the person who did, so...

This achievement is unlocked by defeating the extra boss Kula, who appears after the stage 3 boss battle under certain conditions.

Conditions to unlock
To defeat Kula, you have to do two things.

First, you have to make Kula appear. The conditions are as follows.
1. You haven't used any continue until you finish stage 3.
2. Among the three bosses of stage 1 through 3, you have finished off one or more boss with bomb or special move.
If you meet these conditions, Kula will appear after stage 3 boss fight. As described later, you can meet this condition by playing only stage 3.

Second, to defeat Kula. This is quite easy because you can continue for any times to defeat her.


Solution
Like Final Stage achievement, you can start from the stage 3 to meet the conditions to make Kula appear. When you start from stage 3, your objectives will be,
- To clear stage 3 without continuing
- To finish off stage 3 boss with bomb or special move
On Practice difficulty and 5-life / 5-bomb settings, that's an easy job.


Additional notes on the video
So please watch the video for further details. I highly recommend to click the YouTube icon to watch the video on YouTube. With the embedded video here, it's quite hard to see enough details. Here are some additional info which may not be so apparent from the video.

In stage
[0:45] Wait at the left side to sink the ship quickly. These ships appear throughout the stage. If you sink all six of them, you can get a life recovery item. The video is doing that.

[1:10] Irrelevant to this achievement, the secret characters of stage 3 are here.

[1:36] No problem to take one damage in stage, there's a life recovery item at the end.

[2:02] By sinking all six ships, this meat bun item appears. Don't pick it up with haste. First, clean up the mob enemies around it, else you can get hit.

Stage 3 boss - Rugal phase 1
[2:24] Charging before the fight doesn't work, so wait till your character fires normal shot then Diamond Edge him.

[2:30] Keep an appropriate distance from Rugal. The nearer Kula is, her firepower gets stronger. But if you get too close, Rugal's shot comes through Kula's dead area.

Stage 3 boss - Rugal phase 2
[2:35] Simply avoid the lines showing the course of his shots. After three barrage, move to the bottom right corner.

[2:42] At bottom right, keep the stick held to down-right direction. This will make Kula's shot directed toward Rugal.

Stage 3 boss - Rugal phase 3
[2:57] With no bomb used against Rugal so far, you'll have an ample stock of bombs to finish him with. Of course you can finish with special move instead. When you're going to finish him off, make sure that you're not holding the normal fire button (A button on default).

[3:32] Kula appears as a challenger. The video defeats her without continue, but you can continue in her fight and still unlock the achievement.
