After a few frustrating efforts in the train and beating Shao, I've come up with a way to kill her for Zero that should lead to no death (it did for me personally, twice in a row,) plus a couple(somewhat obvious, but still possibly helpful)tips fo Maplestory M Mesos penalizing the train. Most of the relies on the ability "Time Holding" so in case you're too low to get that ability, this might not be as helpful, but you still might find a few tips.
Always visit the left as that is where the last car is and the explosions you need to escape from beginning on the right. Stay on the top for as much as possible as there's less things to obstruct you and permit the explosions to catch up to you.When you need to head down, simply jump near the edge of the surface of a car and you should receive within another one.Don't kill some of the critters, just repeatedly press on your potions and walk beyond them.Make sure you've got your "Rewind" on if you're large enough to possess it. Should you make a mistake and the explosions are in view, utilize "Time Holding" and try and get as far ahead of these as possible.
Following the fight begins, strike her until she teleports. (She can teleport in front of you, occasionally, so if you own "Rewind" I really do recommend having it on, just in case.) If she teleports, instantly press double up-arrow onto among the (clear, no enemies on it) above platforms. Wait till you hear four (4) explosions. That is when you know that there's no more any leaf bugs right down below. (The leaf bugs will kill you within one strike.) Jump down and keep buy Maple M Mesos attacking. Repeat this until she starts spawning her giant fire charm.
When she starts spawning her giant flame charm, immediately press "Time Holding" and press on twice up-arrow to get on top of a few of the high platforms, like before. Wait there till it finishes, and leap back down. Repeat the first four (4) steps until she is dead. I hope this can be helpful to anybody stuck on Shao. I could not locate any other guides on this.
