Instead of Minas Tirith being attacked by the hordes of Sauron, they are attacked by the Night King and his Army of the Dead The forces of Minas Tirith have knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of Wights and Others Round 1: No dragons, no Gandalf Round 1: No restrictions
Powerlvlsrbullsh1t , question is minas tirith able request assistance from their allies such as the elves from the woodland realm and Rivendell, the dwarves from erebor, or the forces from Rohan, or the army of the dead? Also how big of a force are we looking at from the knight king some speculate from that what I have heard their were at least 60k of Sauron forces.

Falbium, The only assistance that Minas Tirith will get is that the Riders of Rohirrim will arrive to assist, either if the situation in Minas Tirith becomes dire enough or after two full days of fighting, whichever comes first.
The army of the dead is sizably larger, estimated to be around 100k strong, but about 99% of those are undead human Wights with little to no weapons and armor and are completely braindead. There are some stronger units, like undead giants, but those are extremely rare. Leading the forces are the Others (also known by the show canon as White Walkers), who are actual warriors with armour and weaponry made of a unique substance that shatters ordinary weapons like ice upon contact. The leader of the Others is the Night King, who can oneshot a dragon if he lands a spear of ice on them and who rides an undead dragon, though this dragon has been restricted in round one. The only permanent way to put these things down is with fire or to fully dismember them so that they can no longer fight, and everyone killed by a wight or Other is resurrected as a member of the Army of the Dead.
Powerlvlsrbullsh1t, hmm well with knowledge minas tirith definitely can hold their own for a while. Also since wights are pretty much brain dead do they have any means to breach the gate of Gondor because if you remember it took quite a bit of effort in Mordor side to do it. And once the riders of Rohan show up they do to them what they did to Mordor forces lol also from what I know don’t some humans in lotr tend to be superhuman. So Aragorn could most likely defeat the more powerful the undead army. As for round two I don’t see Gandalf the white having much problem with the night king and the dragon even Gandalf the grey took care of balrog though with great effort and a battle that lasted a long time and the white is more powerful. I can also see him calling for the aid of the eagles for the battle. But tbf I’m not very knowledgeable about got and I know the live action of lotr also doesn’t 100 percent portray everything and book versions of characters tend to be stronger than their live action counter parts.
The Night King is also very durable. He fell from cloud level down to the ground and took no damage. Then Dany had Drogon hit him with dragons breath that was blowing through stone building with ease but all the Night King did was smirk at her.

Zero, I would honestly call both of those outliers, especially the dragon fire one. That one literally doesn't make any sense, and perfectly demonstrates how garbage the writing for season 8 was. The entire reason Valyrian Steel is one of the few things that can destroy a White Walker is because they were forged in Valyria with dragon fire. If they showed the dragon fire not affecting him to be indicative that the Night King is above that weakness, that might have been something, but Arya literally just stabs him with Valyrian Steel and he dies immediately. So is he or is he not immune to fire?
