Take a few steps up-left while mashing L. As soon as you lock onto his tail, dash left and hit it with a fully charged shot, then uncharged shots until he becomes vulnerable. Use a partially charged shot on the mouth followed by a fully charged shot. He'll take the damage from both if you're fast.

Repeat all of this to finish him off the next time the mouth becomes vulnerable.
