It only learns 4 steel moves. It learn much more dark and normal moves, plus the legend its based off of has nothing to do with metal.

No idea. Heck, I often forget about Mawile because I never use it, and I wouldn't be surprised if me or one of my friends mistook it for a Dark-type.

I think the mouth thing on its head is made of metal.

It chomps with its gaping mouth. Its huge jaws are actually steel horns that have been transformed.

I can easily see it getting Steel/Fairy typing, or its evolution getting it. I understand the gaping jaws are a defense mechanism, a facade, but I never understood why they were made of steel.

It's based on a legend, but no one says it has to be 100% the same as the legend. Besides, Steel is one of the least distributed types. Mawile, the Aron family, Beldum family, Registeel and Jirachi are the only Steel Pokémon added in Gen 3, if I'm not mistaken. That's less than 10 Pokémon, and previously there weren't many Steel types either (Magnemite, Magneton, Steelix, Scizor, Forretress, Skarmory).
