    Default magic the gathering attacking creatures directly?

    How do i go about making my creature attack an enemy creature directly, rather than a player/planeswalker?

    You don't. The closest thing you'll find is an ability like provoke.

    Doesnt that card contradict the rules? Because the rules say that each creature is assigned to attack a player or planeswalker, but never a creature directly?

    maybe, but the rules also say: "Whenever a card’s text directly contradicts these rules, the card takes precedence. The card overrides only the rule that applies to that specific situation"

    Fight is a mechanic in the comprehensive rules. It is not combat damage, like you seem to think it is.

    Fighting doesn't contradict any rules. Fighting is completely unrelated to combat (notably, abilities like first strike and trample don't apply to fighting).

    How about protection from creatures or from a color which my creature is?

    Protection is defined as such:

    Can't be damaged
    Can't be enchanted/equipped
    Can't be blocked
    Can't become the target of

    Obviously if a white creature fights a creature with protection from white, it won't deal any damage.
