Default arced battery backwards

Filled my dumbass quota last night... put the battery back in but had the terminals backwards and fried the main 250A fuse on +12V to starter cable. Trunk mounted battery and dropped it in backwards, had the lugs on for a few seconds before noticing the hot cables and smoking fuse.

Fuse didn't completely melt but I'm sure enough juice got through to fry something. This is my first personal experience with this one.

What do I need to check after every fuse in the car?
