In this paper we treat the question of the non--existence of global solutions, or their long time behavior, of nonlinear hyperbolic Kirchhoff systems. The main $p$--Kirchhoff operator may be affected by a perturbation which behaves like $|u|^{p-2} u$ and the systems also involve an external force $f$ and a nonlinear boundary damping $Q$. When $p=2$, we consider some problems involving a higher order dissipation term, under dynamic boundary conditions. For them we give criteria in order that $ || u(t,\cdot) ||_q\to\infty$ as $t \to\infty$ along any global solution $u=u(t,x)$, where $q$ is a parameter related to the growth of $f$ in $u$. Special subcases of $f$ and $Q$, interesting in applications, are presented in Sections 4, 5 and 6.
