The beetle acts just like its smaller versions with a few changes. First, the creature can use shockwaves and it too big to jump over. The primary goal is to attack it from the back.

When the beetle charges, which it signals by dragging its foot, it'll run to the opposite end of the arena. When it reaches the end of the arena it'll leap. This is your chance to get behind it and attack. However, do stray too long. The beetle will tilt its head towards Ori when it's about to counter-attack. Get a few swings in and dash away.

The beetle will do 1 of 2 attacks if you're close it'll attempt to ground pound you. You can use this opportunity to get behind it. If you're far away it'll send a shockwave towards Ori that you must jump over.

The beetle won't change its tactics over the course of the fight. Just maintain your attack and evade it when necessary until it dies.
