5M > 2M > 3H > 5H > 236M~MMM~2S 4150 .95 All Very Easy Soft knockdown without Power Blitz, SKD with. Very assist-extension friendly.
2M > 5M > jc.MLL2H > SD > j.MLL2H > jc.LLL 4185 1.05 All Very Easy Saiyan BnB. You can use j.22S instead of the autocombo j.H, but it's really not necessary.
236X~S/H~X > dash 2M > 5M > jc.LL[S] > SD > j.LL2H > jc.L delay L2H[S] > j.22S/j.236M All Very Easy Can eliminate the second j.2H and delay for more consistency at the cost of some meter and damage.
... Vanish > 2M > 5[S] > 3H > 236L~MMM~2S ? -1 All Easy You'll only really use this if Power Blitz isn't charged, as the combo below does more damage.
... Vanish > 2M > 5M > jc.LL[S] > SD > j.LL2H > jc.L delay L2H[S] > j.22S/j.236M ? -1 All Easy Should look familiar at this point.
5M > 2M > 3H > 236L~MMM~H > 214M~MMM~2S 4529 -.5, +.75 All Easy High damage combo using an EX. Power Blitz gives you a sliding knockdown.
5M > 2M > 3H > 236L~MMM~H~4S > j.M ▷ 5L > jc.LL2H > jc.LL > j.22S 4856 +.25 All Medium High damage rejump combo, Power Blitz gives you a sliding knockdown.


If you don't have Power Blitz and go for a j.LLL, remember you can do Vanish > j.[DR] or use an assist for a sliding knockdown instead.
5H > 236L and Barrier blast > 236L both work after you've used your smash.

5M > 2M > 3H > 5H > 214L~LMM > 236L~MMM~2S 4604 1.3 All Easy IMPORTANT: you have to press L before the first attack comes out of the sway. The follow up hit is faster than the automatic first hit, and if you don't cancel it the combo will drop. Synergizes well with most assists.


The midscreen Saiyan BnB also works in the corner, it just isn't notated for efficiency.

... Assist > (5M) > jc.LL[S] > SD > j.LL[S] > jc.LL[S] > j.22S Corner ? Lots All Easy Most common assist extension in Sparking, builds a TON of meter. In some cases you might be able to airdash cancel j.S instead of jump canceling, which gives you even more damage at the cost of consistency.

... > Power Blitz Charge > Assist > dash jump (669) > j.LL2H > SD > j.LL2H > jc.LL[S](2) > j.22S Midscreen 5218 2.05 All Easy Basic midscreen assist combo, helped a lot by A17's high Smash-less damage.
... 2S > Assist > (5M) > jc.LL[S] > SD > j.LL2H > jc.LL[S] > j.22S Corner ? ? All Easy You may have to cut out the 'j.LL[S] > SD' portion of the combo at high Hitstun Decay. Axeice is good but he doesn't do this and drops the combo.
... 2S > Assist > [DR] > 236L~L > 22S/236L+M/236H+S/214L+M Corner ? ? All Easy High hitstun decay version.

Combo Theory

A17's combos midscreen usually skip rekkas and go right into j.2H unless you have assists. In the corner, it's much easier to go into a high damage rekka combo with a slide knockdown ender using assists. 2S charge is very easy to combo from using assists, and his air combos in the corner build high amounts of meter as well as ending in a slide knockdown thanks to j.22S. Typically you will charge and spend the charge in the same combo, but sometimes it may be good to end with a super and keep the charge for pressure as it's highly plus on block.
