Step 1: The setting. It can be a fight on land, air, or sea, could be in the rain, snow, or fog....make it seem epic.
As the Party(being an RPG) Crosses through a planetoid that resembles the Hell as Dante's Divine Comedy, they finally arrive to the Ninth Circle, the place is frozen...
As you make your way to the core, an acquaintance form long ago appears and tells you that all this time, the chaos that happened thorough the world was caused by a demon-like race that travels along the stars defiling other planets with chaos.
He proceeds to mock you as he reveals to you that he sided with them form the beginning. He uses a story-related catalyst and shatters the humongous frozen core, to free the once inprisoned Prince of Darkness.
The Dark One then proceeds to kill the acquaintace, freeing him form his "defiled existance", and goes on a rampage as he curses the party, then the battle ensues.
Step 2: Design the boss and its attacks. Is it a robot, or a giant lava monster? Or something creative! A novel idea. Also, it could change patterns each time you hit it to a significant level.
As the Divine Comedy describes Satan, Several wings, three mouths and encased in ice form the waist bellow. He first attacks the party with Ice-based attacks. Later, he goes into hyper and he melts the ice, as fiery gales rise form the abyss that formed the ice, and attacks with fire and thunder attacks. Finally, he reveal an fallen angel look and uses dark and light based attacks.
Step 3: Tell how you're supposed to defeat it. Quick time events? Regular fighting? Or just mash a bunch of ideas together.
Two of the mouths absorb magic, which is the only thing that can stun him. Disable the mouths with ranged attacks and the attack with any kind of spell to make it vulnerable, and finally blitz with melee.
He recovers the next turn, so speed it vital.
Step 4: Music. It could tie in with the fight, so you know the attack is coming, or if you do something at a specific note you get extra points or something like that. You can also link to something pre-made.
Something of an angelic chorus, only distorted and demonic, and with mechanical hints
Nothing overly stupid, please.
It was kind of fun.
