A cool trick to use for any projectile character (like Ken, but particularly Ryu) is to do the motion for a fireball but then input a kick (probably light as it has minimal recovery); it will look like you're going for a fireball but instead you'll just whiff a kick. Not only could this bait a jump out of your confused opponent, but it will make your zoning game less predictable as your opponent has reason to second guess whether or not you'll throw a fireball. Pretty meta and strange, I know, but the psychological effect on your opponent is surprising.
