Anderson broke Shahid Afridi's record for the fastest ODI century by one ball, completing his ton in a stunning 36 deliveries as New Zealand ran riot in Queenstown.
Jesse Ryder also helped himself to a hundred, with New Zealand posting a mammoth 159-run victory after the match had been reduced to 21 overs each due to bad weather.
The series is tied at 1-1 with the second ODI abandoned due to a wet outfield, and both sides will be keen to take a lead in the penultimate match of the one-day series.
West Indies, though, were dealt a major blow after skipper Dwayne Bravo confirmed Darren Sammy, the Test and T20 captain, would miss the rest of the series with a hamstring injury.
The West Indies are already without the likes of Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo, and the away side will now have to somehow cope without one of their most valuable all-rounders in the limited overs format.
"It's a big loss. Darren is out for the entire series," Bravo said. "We haven't decided on what changes to make yet and we'll do so when we look at the pitch. We have a couple niggles in the camp but with Darren out, he brings so much to our team, especially in the depth.
"His experience and positivity will be missed. It's a tough time for us but our newer players will have to step up. Our players have a good work ethic so I'm confident in them."
After the West Indies bowlers were pummelled to all areas of the ground by Anderson and Ryder, Bravo promised his team would not make the same mistakes in Nelson on Saturday.
"Our bowlers were disappointed," he added. "It was a great knock from Anderson but we've been analysing footage and studying the size of the ground. It's going to be a different ball game.
"We will not be making the same mistakes twice. We'll be going back to basics like we did in the first ODI and be disciplined. Bowling to one side of the wicket is important and we didn't do that in the last match."
