second boss on the Dawn of Ys, that would be the fire demon with the armor right? if so level yourself up alittle more. when he is standing still shooting stuff and throwing axes avoid him. when he sinks out of his armor and flys and the screen you will see the fire section moving across the floor i am pretty certain that is when you are suppossed to hit him, i am pretty certain you hit the fire part (or is it the armor ) as you can see it has been alittle bit since i have played the game. but he is not to hard once you get yourself high enough in experience. as for getting hit by his attacks if i recall there are alot of cheap parts it seems if you come anywhere near a attack you can get hit by it. but i am not sure to be honest it has been awhile since i played it. maybe i will do so real real soon.

I finally beat him. It was ridiculous how much I had to go through. First I levelled up way more than I should have had to (I was killing enemies for 6 EXP each to get the last level up). Then I backtracked back to the mine to get the power ring. Even that wasn't enough - I had to use save states to beat the boss.
This boss was so buggy it was incredible. If I was even within an inch of it's axes or fireballs I would take damage, so it was almost impossible to take no damage from one of his attacks. Is this buginess caused by the emulator? Because it doesn't seem like it would be possible to beat this boss without save states.
