This is the final boss and he can be annoying, save your money to buy the 9300 weapon, no matter how many times you die or continue you will keep it, but with the armour it goes after 1 death so its your choice to buy that. Anyway back to the boss, just keep hitting away, making sure to hit all his big fireballs and dodging his shockwave, draw him to the left side of the screen then when he flies up run under him and do the same to the other side of the screen, rinse and repeat a few times and thats it really, hope that helps!

First thing's first: Put this on Easy and give yourself 7 lives. Even on a low difficulty setting, this game is tough.

Your primary goal while playing is to kill every enemy and open all the chests to collect Zenny. Don't spend any of it *at all* until you have enough to buy the best weapon (9600 Zenny) from the merchant.

If you collect as much as possible as you go along, you should have enough near the end of the 5th level: Once you've gone as far right as possible, you'll be in a huge room with a dungeon entrance in the upper right corner. There is an old man at the bottom of this room that allows you to buy things. Make sure you don't make contact with him before you have the sufficient funds, or else you'll likely have to start all over again since he disappears. Honestly, you'll need that strong weapon to kill all of the bosses from level 5 onward. (Plus, it makes most basic non-purple enemies practically one-hit kills)

The black dragon is on the 8th level and fights in the same pattern as the blue and red dragons, with one exception: He has a magic attack that reverses your controls.

Since he's similar to the other two dragons, that means you can use a similar tactic to avoid him as well if you're playing on the default International ROM: Duck under him and if he contacts you, you will take no damage, so long as you've avoided his projectiles.

Even with the top weapon he takes some work to wear down. Make use of the right trigger's turbo fire and with a little skill, the achievement will pop.

If you need vitality bar increases, you have to score lots of points. There is a FAQ floating around with the locations of the hidden items. I suggest checking it out. I managed to clear the game with 3 boxes of health, but YMMV.
