Madeleine Joan Blaustein (commonly credited as Maddie Blaustein, formerly credited as Addie Blaustein) (born Adam Blaustein October 9, 1960 - December 11, 2008[1]) was an American male-to-female transgender voice actress. Blaustein was born in Long Island, New York, United States.

Blaustein was, until her death, the voice of Sartorius in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. She was also most known as the voices of Meowth in Pokémon (Episodes 29-Season 8) and Solomon Muto (Sugoroku Mutou) from Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. She was also Chef Kawasaki from Kirby: Right Back At Ya!, Doctor Kureha in One Piece and Arngrim, Lawfer and Lezard in Valkyrie Profile. She was also a comic book writer and artist, having worked for both Marvel Comics and Milestone Comics, and an animation director. Most recently, she served as Creative Director for the recently cancelled Weekly World News. Video game localization coordinator and translator Jeremy Blaustein is her brother.

She provided the voice of Margarete in the English version of the PlayStation 2 game Shadow Hearts. Most notable is her great variety of voices. In Valkyrie Profile, for example, she was able to perform a very "tough", deep masculine voice (Arngrim), as well as a high-class one (Lawfer) and a suitable and somewhat androgynous voice of a mad scientist/sorcerer (Lezard Valeth). In Shadow Hearts, Margarete is voiced in a deep, feminine, and seductive style. During the 2004 Democratic Party primaries, she appeared as Sméagol on the Mike Malloy Show, announcing a satirical presidential bid.[2] She was also the most recent voice actor for E-123 Omega of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

Under the pseudonym Kendra Bancroft, Blaustein was one of the content creators in the Second Life platform, where she was a very eager participant since 2004, and earned a reputation as an innovative, competent, and very reliable 3D modeller in the many communities where she participated. Her experience as an activist in the transgendered community helped her out to organize and support groups of people in Second Life.

She continued acting until December 11, 2008, when she died of a short severe illness. The following week, Adult Swim aired a special bump tribute to her, listing her name and the dates of her birth and death without the Adult Swim logo, an honor it bestows only on those they deem to be important enough to warrant one.

WarioWare D.I.Y. and Arceus and the Jewel of Life are both dedicated to her.
