- The Japanese name of this move literally means an "all-out resistance" (徹底抗戦 tettei-kōsen), while also incorporating puns on 鋼鉄 kōtetsu (steel) and 光線 kōsen (beam).
- Steel Beam is tied with Doom Desire for having the highest base power of all Steel-type moves, excluding Z-Moves, Max Moves, and G-Max Moves.
