* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': It's repeatedly mentioned that the bulk of any army actually consists of the workers and support staff. In fact, noble officers are expected to bring their wives to war with them; the husbands fight on the battlefield, while the wives keep track of logistics back in camp. By the time the story starts, the armies of the ten Alethi princedoms have been camped at the edge of the Shattered Plains for six years, so they've turned from "armies with camp followers" to "ten small cities with their own armies."

* A large portion of the camp followers are actually young women serving a tour of duty with the legions (all young people are required to serve in the legions, men as soldiers, women as camp followers). Their primary purpose is to provide housekeeping services for the soldiers such as cooking and cleaning. While they are not prostitutes it's not uncommon for them to end up marrying a soldier (and often pregnant) and the books hint that this is actually the main purpose of the program.

* ''VideoGame/TotalWarRomeII'' and ''VideoGame/TotalWarAttila'' can allow experienced armies to get a tradition that indicates the camp following of the army is so significant, it provides bonuses to the main army (such as reduced upkeep, or heightened morale). ''Attila'' will have armies bring this trope UpToEleven while their faction is migrating - the entire rest of the faction are the camp followers of its armies, and all of the buildings used by their people are temporary ones that come into effect only while its army is encamped until the faction stops migrating.
