The characters are very similar at least it feels like it, and both main characters start out as weaklings.
Though in 'KonoSuba- God's blessing on this wonderful world!!' the main character dies and is found in a new world and in 'Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?' the main character is already born in the world.
The main character is very weak at the beginning of the both animes and wants to go on an adventure. In DanMachi and KonoSuba he's followed by a goddess who's kinda weak too and seems to cry kinda often (especially in KonoSuba).
Over time, he finds a couple of companions to join his group and continues his adventure. In both animes adventurers gain money by killing monsters.
Difference is that in KonoSuba male protagonist's companions are mostly useless x) and that the MC (main character) came from another world while in DanMachi he is from that world.
Both anime feature fantasy world, main hero ascension to power and multiple interesting side characters that help him achieve the goal.

Both shows have a similar setting. A strange, game like world where many fantasy races live in harmony. In both shows, there are funcional groups of people that work together to gain power.
Based on a story, these shows aren't that similar but judging from the setting and the environment, these two shows have a similar vibe.
The world of this two is preatty similar. We've got a leader girl Hestia(in Is it wrong...) and Usagi(in Problem Children). There mine characters in both of these are poor but with their new skills (Is it wrong...) or new friends (Problem Children) they can quickly help it. Also we've got perfect comedy and ecchi momens in both of these.
In the kingdom of Urak, the tower of Druaga is a source of fear and death; it is the cause of disease and monster attacks, and climbing it is impossible given the ferocity of the monsters within – until now. It is the Summer of Anu, a period that occurs once every five years during which the monsters are weakened. Jil, a guardian, is one adventurer...

This series is in many ways very similar. Both involve giant towers, fighting monsters, assemblling and traveling with a party, leveling up, and unique qualties hidden about the main character. Their names are similar in a sense and they rhyme. Both characters practically become obsessed with one of the main female characters which also inspires them to greater feats. Both main characters start out ridiculously weak even by weaker standers of other adventurers. Both characters face tough early trials and succeed where they were not expected to do so. Both shows even have human or adventurer settlements inside the giant towers. Both shows feature at least one episode where monsters somehow penetrate into one of the human settlements. Both characters are competing against other teams even one with which they have a strong bond and connection to (in on case a girl the character likes who also saves him and in the other his older brother) but at the same time they are also some times helping each other despite being on different teams. This especially seems true in a sense early on when both teams are still getting started. Both main characters acquire special armor and weapons as well and in both cases the weapon is so unique that they are practically devine as well as extra powerful in their hands.
One little difference too is, Druaga and Danmachi (the Japanese name), feel like they are video game stories but have not been affirmly established as such. Sword Art Online and Log Horizon it is established so even though it has similarites to both, it shares the unique similarity with each other because no video game connection has been affirmed yet. Even if this happens later the fact it was delayed so long still separates it a little from SAO and Log Horizon. SAO in later episodes strays from the central tower concept. So there is a little bit of difference there as well since so far neither Danmachi or Druaga left the central tower theme as a focus to the overall story.
Still SAO, Druaga, and Danmachi all center, at least initially, around a gigantic central tower with many levels.
If you are looking for a show with less harem, less slice of life, and has some more serious themes than what picking up girls in a dungeon has to offer: Druaga could be for you. It has got the young boy main character with good willpower that is righteous and wants to be a hero. There are plenty of differences between them and I never felt like one was rerun episodes of the other.
