Problem with special characters in shell
Are you writing a Shell app, EDK app, driver? Are you using the EFI Toolkit?
 
I write only Shell apps and I am able see the parameter ^^ via SI->Argv[x].
    Shell> MYTEST ^^
    The command line parameters are:
      MYTEST
      ^

Example:

If I try and pass a character like ^ in a command line argument it is not present in SI->Argv[i]. I havent been able to find the problem area in the code.

Any ideas what could be wrong?
