Pun on "beak" and "beacon".
Its Japanese name, ōkuchibashi, literally means "large beak" or "giant beak"
All three Beakon types are exaggerated parodies of the Phorusrhacidae family of flightless birds. More commonly know as terror birds, these walking hatchets possessed enormous beaks and existed as apex predators in the plains of South America roughly 2 million years ago in the Cenozoic era.
