Are there any PSPACE problems that don't exist in NP-Hard?

The question is in the title, I suppose. I am studying complexity classes, and I understand that NP-Hard is the set of problems that are at least as hard as the hardest problems in NP. Therefore, it will naturally contain PSPACE problems.

However, I was specifically wondering if there were any PSPACE problems that were not in NP-Hard? (from my understanding, implying that they are easier than the hardest problems in NP).

Assuming we use polytime reductions in both, all PSPACE-hard problems are NP-hard, which follows directly from the definition and from the easy fact NP$\subseteq$PSPACE: a languages $L$ is PSPACE-hard if all languages in PSPACE polytime-reduce to $L$. If $L$ is PSPACE-hard then in particular, all languages in NP polytime-reduce to $L$, and so $L$ is also NP-hard.
On the other hand, there are problems in PSPACE which are not NP-hard, for example $\emptyset$ and $\Sigma^*$. If P=NP then all other problems in PSPACE are NP-hard, since every non-trivial language (a language different from $\emptyset,\Sigma^*$) is NP-hard in this case. If P$\neq$NP then every problem in P also belongs to PSPACE and is not NP-hard.
• @starflyer This can only happen if P$\neq$NP. If you make the stronger assumption that NP$\neq$coNP, then any coNP-complete program is an example. I imagine that you can construct an example under the hypothesis P$\neq$NP using diagonalization, as in Ladner's theorem. – Yuval Filmus Apr 2 '15 at 19:05
