It is odd that the achievement refers to the boss as the "Final Boss", which it clearly isn't.

The play area is it's own level (5-1) and it is a large open area that is the only non-randomly generated stage in the game. You can check the map in the lower right corner to keep an eye out of the boss location (you don't want to run into him on accident).

Approach the boss slowly, avoid its scan range and throw bombs at it to destroy its outer spike shield. This is EXTREMELY easy if you have bomb paste. Your bombs will stick to the spikes and it will take about 3 to 4 bombs to clear. If you happen to be out of bombs on this stage, you will have to utilize the proximity mines that spawn in this level. This is very tricky and dangerous though (bring bombs!)

Once the shield is gone, you will have to intentionally walk into its scan range. Once you have the boss' attention, it will attack. There are 3 different attacks the boss can perform:

Laser- The boss will start grinning, just move away from the boss as quickly as possible. Even possessing an attack robot, you should be fast enough to outrun the beam. Just don't run into a proximity mine in your haste.

Charge attack- The boss will start spinning. then charge at you at high speed. As soon as you see the boss spinning, start moving away from him. After a couple of seconds, turn right or left to avoid traveling in a straight line.

Vacuum attack- The boss will open is mouth and start pulling in everything around him (including you).

Any of these attacks can be an insta-kill, so be on your toes.

To attack the boss, you will need to wait for him to perform the vacuum attack. If the boss happens to be near a proximity mine, then you don't have to do anything but watch. The mine will get sucked in an explode inside the boss. If there is not a nearby mine, just throw a bomb in its direction while it is sucking in.

You must do this 3 times to kill the boss.

Below is a video of me beating the boss. The video is part of my speed run for the 'Brain Blast' achievement, so you will have to skip to near the end of the video for the boss fight.
