How to design a massive boss battle

Initially I wanted to get ready an introduction scene and a boss battle. Shortly after I realized the timeframe wouldn't allow me to do both. I had to choose. So which one would more badass and entertain more? I went for the boss. And I'm glad I did.

A description that probably fits me best is technical artists: someone who increases the quality and looks/appearance of the work by writing new shaders, doing some fancy math, procedural stuff, writing 3D tools (viewers,...
