I did exactly those things. The place they are talking about does not have a Protector for me and I already opened the door and collected the loot from all 4 chests and there was no summon in there.

I did some googling and found a guy's LP on youtube. In the gate area, the left chest contained the expected contents, but the right chest, which was supposed to contain the Protector summon, had a skill that I don't recognize.

I did some research on the subject, and apparently there was extra content added for EBF4 for the Steam version. Someone on the steam forums seems to believe that the Protector summon was in a chest in the jungle area, before it was moved to the gate area in the ascent behind the Protector boss. While my memory on specific chests is foggy, I know for a fact that the Protector is not a boss in the original EBF4.

Also worth mentioning is that, based on my old save files, the Protector summon is somewhere between the jungle and the end of the game, progression-wise. These files are at a time when EBF4 was relatively fresh on Newgrounds.

So I'm going to conclude that the Wikia, and a lot of current sources, are based off of the patched Steam version of EBF4. The Protector summon is probably in the jungle. It is also possible that things were handled improperly and that the Protector summon is no longer obtainable in your game, whether it's through your actions, or because Matt dun goofed.

Thank you so much for the help Fooliolo! I went back to the Jungle Ruins like you mentioned and it seems I missed 2 chests because the enemies were too tough for me (I know I could have changed it to easy, but I wanted to do it on Epic). The one on the bottom right has the Protector Summon. It automatically gave the medal to me without needing to summon it because I already had all the other ones. Also, by any chance, do you know if I can go back to a previous save file were I missed scanning an enemy and get the medal right away or do I have to scan all the remaining ones as well?
