At first, you might find that I'm very quick and animated

Later on, you'll realize I'm just trying to be connected

If you only saw my latter, you might think green

I'm obsessed with a princess, but not the queen

Together though, I can take you to new places

Sometimes you need control, leaving behind no traces

WHAT AM I?

HINT

The answer is right here

You are

a Hyperlink!

At first, you might find that I'm very quick and animated

OP: Hyper means quick and animated

Later on, you'll realize I'm just trying to be connected

Link! The name... (Clever!)

If you only saw my latter, you might think green

Link always wears green - looking at him from behind, you'd see mostly green

I'm obsessed with a princess, but not the queen

Princess Zelda

Together though, I can take you to new places

OP: A hyperlink can take you to new places such as websites, documents, etc.

Sometimes you need control, leaving behind no traces

OP: In word and excel, you have to hold the control button and click to activate a hyper link. If you use this method, it leaves behind no traces (no way to track what you clicked)

As for the hint

OP: The answer is a hyperlink :)

  • $\begingroup$ My word was hyperlink but this is correct! +1 and accepted, do you mind if I make a few edits to fit some of the lines better? $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Apr 25 '17 at 9:17
  • $\begingroup$ Go for it. Cool riddle +1 $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Apr 25 '17 at 9:21
  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers thank you :) I think the green and princess lines revealed a bit too much though :P $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Apr 25 '17 at 9:23

It's me, Mario

At first, you might find that I'm very quick and animated

Mario is a video game character

Later on, you'll realize I'm just trying to be connected

You need to plugin in your console/computer to play. Hence ... "connect" it.

If you only saw my latter, you might think green

Luigi is green. Thanks to n_palum

I'm obsessed with a princess, but not the queen

The game's objective is to save the princess

Together though, I can take you to new places

In order to reach the princess you have to go through various levels

Sometimes you need control, leaving behind no traces

And you need a console "controller" to play.

  • $\begingroup$ I really like this answer and your logic! However, it's not the answer I was looking for :( $\endgroup$ – G_as_in_Gnome Apr 25 '17 at 9:11
  • $\begingroup$ You can use "If you only saw my latter, you might think green" to be Luigi :) $\endgroup$ – n_plum Apr 25 '17 at 12:02
