In total, eight Primera teams crashed out on Wednesday night to add to the five that departed in the previous round.
Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Racing Santander, Levante, Mallorca, Albacete and Malaga all fell victim to lower division teams and join Barcelona, Valencia, Zaragoza, Espanyol and Villarreal out of the competition.
Real were indebted to Argentine Santiago Solari who produced two superb free kicks, the second in extra time, to ensure that Cristo's opener for Tenerife was not enough for another shock.
Depor were eliminated by Elche courtesy of a single goal from Roberto Peragon after just nine minutes.
Malaga threw away a two-goal lead at Lorca to slump to a 5-2 defeat.
Juan Rodriguez and Geijo seemed to have put Gregorio Manzano's men in control on the hour mark, but a Sergio Francisco double took the game to extra time where a brace from Jorge Perona and a further strike from Huegun handed the hosts a memorable victory.
Mallorca boss Hector Cuper tasted defeat for the first time since his return as two goals from Maciot Devora gave Lanzarote a surprise 2-1 victory - despite Jesus Perera's late reply.
Gramanet saw off high-flying Levante despite the Primera outfit taking an early lead.
Jofre moved Bernd Schuster's side ahead on six minutes, but an own goal from Alexis drew Gramanet level and Miki sealed victory 13 minutes from time.
Real Sociedad fell victim to lowly Mirandes who emerged triumphant 4-3 on penalties after the game had finished goalless after extra time.
Sevilla's good form in La Liga counted for nothing as Cuidad de Murcia sent them packing with a late winner.
Sevilla appeared to have forced extra time when Antonito equalised Carlos's opener eight minutes from time, but Juan Ubeda won the game for the hosts three minutes before the final whistle.
Recreativo de Huelva edged out Albacete thanks to an extra time goal from Moreno, while Racing Santander slipped to defeat at Valladolid.
Oriol Lozano put the Cantabrians one up after just 11 minutes, but two goals in three second half minutes from David Sousa and Aritz Aduritz (49 and 52) turned the game.
Real Betis saw off local rivals Cadiz with goals from Ricardo Oliveira and Juan Canas, while Osasuna snuck past Girona thanks to an extra time strike from Inaki Munoz.
Athletic Bilbao also needed extra time to beat Cultural with Santiago Ezquerro proving the match-winner after Paulino's effort had cancelled out Pablo Orbaiz's opener.
Getafe got the better of Pontevedra in another clash that needed extra time to separate the sides.
After neither side had found the net during 90 minutes, Nano and Riki scored for Quique Flores' men to ensure Charles' late effort was no more than a consolation.
Numancia triumphed 4-3 on penalties over Cordoba after Carlos Merino's last-gasp goal (86) had restored parity following Txiki's opener (58).
Lleida also needed the lottery of penalties to beat Terrassa, while in the final game of the round, Atletico Madrid play Nastic on Thursday night.
