1. A terminal fitting, comprising:
a wire connecting portion configured to be connected to a wire;
a terminal body provided in front of the wire connecting portion and including a tubular box having a bottom wall, first and second opposed side walls projecting up from the bottom wall and a top wall extending from the first side wall toward the second side wall;
a standing wall projecting up from an end of the second side wall opposite the bottom wall and having an upper edge that is inclined to gradually reduce a projecting dimension toward a front end of the terminal fitting, at least a portion of the upper edge of the standing wall being farther from the bottom wall than a distance from a top end of the first side wall to the bottom wall; and
a projection defining an upwardly projecting part of the top wall at a position substantially aligned with the standing wall in a front-back direction, the projection being closer to the second side wall than to the first side wall and having a free side edge opposed to the standing wall, a front surface of the projection being inclined to gradually reduce a projecting dimension toward the front and a rear surface of the projection being at least partly open in the front-back direction;
wherein the projection includes a projecting wall, the free side edge defining an edge of the projecting wall and being substantially adjacent to the standing wall in a width direction of the terminal body and projects up to a height of the upper edge of the standing wall.
