The fuse is a safety measure, If you have an overcurrent draw on a LiPo OR on an NiMH battery, the battery will burn. Difference is the LiPo is going to burn a LOT hotter with fire spewing out the side. There are a LOT of AEG's that don't have fuses, that doesn't mean they don't need them.
Things that cause over current draw are shorts in the wiring, your motor jamming and too much torque on the motor (having a powerful spring and the wrong gear ratio)
It's a good idea to have a fuse with NiMH as well, but LiPo's are more dangerous and it's a REALLY good idea to use a fuse, especially if you have a systema magnum motor.
But you need to get the right fuse, using a 30A fuse with a LiPo that can only supply 25A is useless.

There's dozens of configurations, shapes, sizes and connectors for NiMH batteries. I suggest getting deans connectors since they're the best for airsoft.
Check ehobby asia, they have a large selection of airsoft specific NiMH batteries.

Using a LiPo battery on a "LiPo ready" Rifle without a MOSFET or fuse is like using penicillin to kill a virus. After a while your body finally breaks down and you have to go see a doctor and all you can tell him is "Well the Chinese guy that sold it to me said it would work!"

My bad didn't really think about it, besides i'm more worried about the battery frying my hand off then i am about the internals, i am now anyway...guess i have to put installing a fuse on my to do list then.

Make sure you get the right one. It depends on your battery, Ideally go 5A under your continuous draw rate.
