Part one of the fight is simple: smash the containment tube. Just keep bashing it with strong attacks while avoiding the napalm spitting zombies. Once you've smashed it enough, the boss will reveal his new giant stone robot body. As with most final boss battles (of which there really aren't a lot these days), you'll have to defeat him 3 times.

In his first form, he'll try to smash you with his fists. Simply dash toward his body when he does so, and unleash a flurry of heavy attacks on the big coffin lodged in his stomach when he's standing against the edge of the platform. He'll summon zombies, just try to execute them as needed to regain health. When he summons the burning heavy enemies, make sure to execute them so you can grab their mortar weapons, because once you've smashed open the stomach casket, you'll need to send a mortar shot into it to finish the first form.

Second form is a pain because it requires a slime gun, gathered by executing the toxic female zombie enemies. The problem isn't getting the executions, it's getting the enemies, because while you're waiting for the boss to summon them, he'll attempt to attack you himself with pounding fists (staying in the corner directly under his left arm worked as a safe zone for me), laser breathing "terror-dactyls" that fly overhead, and a lightning attack where he'll sweep his hand over the platform raining electricity down in his path. Just keep dodging until you can get your hands on a slime gun (keep two handy if you can, because you'll need 'em for form 3 as well), wait for him to charge up for his lightning fist attack, then fire slime at the second casket lodged in his chest. He'll become encrusted with crystals and hunched over the platform. Use the ninja run prompts to scale the big guy, swing over to his chest, and smash through the sarcophagus, the mash the displayed button to cleave his heart. It only takes one attempt if done right, it's just tedious getting there.

In his final form, the boss will shoot fire beams from his eyes, toss meteors at you, attempt to squash you with his fists (again, just hide at the right side of the screen, under his left arm), and summon more enemies. When he fires his beams, shoot him in the eyes with your slime gun. I don't think you can get both in one attempt, as it took me two efforts to blind him completely. Once his eyes have been gooped, his face will burst into bluish flames and he'll send out lightning enemies. Execute them, take their electric spine, and when the boss lowers his face to the platform, attack him with the electricity. One hit and he's done. Game over. Achievement popped.

too long; didn't read version - here's a walkthrough vid of the fight courtesy of YouTube user jasonpolo29. Not mine, so I take no credit.
