I think this is a very good matchup for DeDeDe, especially compared to some of the other high tier characters. Ryu's focus is a pretty good move, and Ryu (in my experience) likes to use it to try to land. What most Ryu players don't realize is that D3's uair cuts through focus like it doesn't even exist and has decent kill power and frame data. D3's ftilt also has the multiple hits that allow uair to negate focus, but it's not as good at killing. DeDeDe's fantatic roll allows him to escape when Ryu is too aggressive, as Ryu isn't the fastest character out there. Ryu's recovery, while not very lacking in range, is kinda linear. This is more prevalent at lower skill levels, but D3 can still set up his infamous gordo traps and kill with a spike or a charged smash. Inhale also has the ability to beat Tatsumaki, for whatever reason, so that's another neat trick. Overall, DeDeDe has tools that stop Ryu's tools from working at their full potential, and he's also really hard to kill off the top with good DI.

Because of King Dedede's combo weakness and telegraphed moves I would actually call this one of Ryu's best matchups.
