7. A complex type fusible link comprising:
an insulative block base including a plurality of cavities;
a conductive connecting plate which is integrally embedded in the insulative block base, a part of the conductive connecting plate being exposed to at least one of the cavities;
a plurality of fusible elements each of which is accommodated in corresponding one of the cavities and includes a first end which is connected to the part of the conductive connecting plate and a second end; and
a plurality of terminals each of which is integrally embedded in the insulative block base and includes a first end which is connected to the second end of corresponding one of the fusible elements and a second end which is exposed from the insulative block base, wherein
at least one fusible element of the plurality of fusible elements includes an upstanding wall extending from at least one of the first end and the second end thereof, wherein the upstanding wall has an end that is distant from the first end or the second end of the at least one fusible element in a direction perpendicular to a surface of the conductive connecting plate that is exposed to at least one of the cavities; and
the end of the upstanding wall forms a notched fastening portion to which an other fusible element is fastened.
